Linksys wireless router problems

Someone was nice enough to get back to me quickly, but the solution didn't work and I don't know why. Ethernet of my embarq dsl box should be hooked up to internet port of linksys and that my pc should be hooked up to port 1 of linkys. I did that and then I was bounced off the internet. Can someone please help me? I have to try to figure this out. I feel like a total idiot.

    I can connect either of my 2 PCs via Ethernet to our DSL Modem and connect to the Internet. Now, though, when both PCs are connected to the Linksys Router and an Ethernet cable is connected to the DSL modem and Router, I can get either PC to connect on the Internet. The DSL modem light indicates it has an Internet connect and the Linksys router's Internet light is on but I can get on the Internet. What can I try?

Power down all the units. Power up the DSL first. After it is up, power up the router. After that is up, Power up the laptops one at a time. Let me know if this helps or not, there are other things to try after this...

My linksys router doesnt have a default gateway and the reset buttton on the router doesnt work either


When you look between the Ethernet port and Power button, there should be a reset button there you should hold for 5 seconds. Of course if you do that, If you changed Network name and key that will be reset to the default settings, Also is wireless network showing when you pull up the Networks? You can leave user name blank, but default password is admin. Also email me with more info I will be glad to help

Were having problems connecting our Wii to our router we have a Cisco E2000 router. on the Wii a screen pops up when im trying to connect that asks for a SSID n i cant find that on the rounter or anywhere...


Your SSID is the name of your wireless network, which you probably entered yourself when you set up your router. If you didn't change anything, its probably something like generic like: "ciscoxxxx" or "linksys".

Why is the link 192.168.0.1 not connecting me.


First, pull the power cord and reseat it to check if its not a temporary problem with the router.

You may need to set a static IP address on your computer to talk to your router in case someone has turned off DHCP. 192.168.0.2 would be a good choice, with 192.168.0.1 as the default gateway and see if you can ping the router on that IP address.

If you are using a wireless adapter, try using an ethernet cable if the above doesn't work.

If these steps don't work, the router may not be using that IP address.

I have linksies router and 2 wire modem will they work together?


If the Modem has an ethernet port (looks like a large phone plug like the ones on the router) connect an ethernet cable from it to the "internet/wan" port on the router. If it doesn't there isn't much you can do.

Connecting to internet


Ok, cable (coax) comes in from wall and attaches to modem. Ethernet cable goes from modem to WAN Port of router. You may have to reboot both devices to ensure that your modem (internet service provider) assigns IP address to your router. If PC is close enough, attach new ethernet cable from one of the 4 ports on your router down to your PC's ethernet adapter. (where your modem used to plug into). Router will now assign an IP address to your PC and you should be able to access the www.

Good Luck and let me know if you have any more questions.

Wireless router needing ethernet connection?


Hi ABVT66 - Didn't your router come with two short cables? It should have. One is the cable that hooks up the modem to your router and the other is the cat5 (ethernet) cable that connects your router to your pc. Let me know if you have these cables. Also, if you check your device manager on your pc, click on the + next to network adapters and it will tell you your network adapter. DON'T RATE THIS 'TIL WE'RE DONE. Thanks.

Not enough ethernet ports


I have this router, you do not need two ports for your pc.
one port marked internet goes into your modem then the other ports marked 1-4 goes into your pc. it doesnt matter what one you plug it into. heres a little diagram


MODEM---------> LINKSYS ROUTER ------------> PC ethernet port.

(note: the cable from the modem to router and router to pc is a straight through cable, AKA Patch Cable. )
