You want to add a <insert brand> router to... your PC's ethernet port? If so, you just need a straight-through ethernet cable with CAT5 connectors. One end into the LAN port of the router, and the other end into the ethernet port of your PC. Done!

Now... there is a modem as well? Usually you'd have the modem (DSL, cable, whatever) plugged into the router's WAN port. The router then can share it out to all the LAN ports (of which your PC will be one of) and to any wireless clients via it's radio antenna.

So that answers that question, but if you get that done and can't configure everything, ask another seperate question please!

How do i connect a wifi router to the dsl of my pc?


Your internet provider should have provided you with a modem (dsl modem) that will have a ethernet port which can be connected to a computer directly or a router to make internet available to multiple computers. Router usually comes with five ports one of them is WAN port (Wide Area Network) and other four are LAN ports (Local Area Network) The dsl modem should be connected to WAN port of your router and the LAN ports are use to connect to any computer with an ethernet cable. If the router has wireless capability you can use your laptop or smartphone to access internet wirelessly!

    Wanting to make my laptop wireless connection


    Hello.

    Connect the MODEM (device you received from your Internet Serivce Provider that gets the Internet signal) to the router via the WAN port. WAN stands for Wide Area Network and this gets you out to the Modem and then to the Internet.

    Ports 1 and higher are for computers and network printers that you can directly connect to your LAN - Local Area Network.

    To secure your connection, you will need to configure your router and you will need to connect your laptop to the router (either wireless or via one of the numbered ports on the back of the router), open a web browser and enter the IP address of the router.

    Since you did not put the model of the router, I cannot give you specifics on how to secure the connection. You can go to the D-Link web site, find your router, download the manual and it will walk you thru the settings.

    Basically, you will be entering a WEP key (a set of letters and numbers that you know) to allow only wireless computers that have this key.

    Cant get into 192.168.1.1 to fix problem


    Do you have cable or DSL internet service? On a DSL setup the router is at 192.168.2.1 . At the run command, ipconfig/all will give all the current settings of your network connection. The line with default gateway is your router address.

    Check the status lights on your router and modem as well as the network connection on your computer. You may want to try connecting to the modem itself with a wired connection and then reconnect the router and see if you can connect with a wired connection from the computer to the router.

    If your network works normally with a wired connection, use the device manager to check your wireless connection. Also go through the router setup to check that no settings have been changed.

    If you have missing lights on either the modem or the router, check the cables (replace them if you can) and transformers. A call for service from your ISP may be needed if the modem isn't connecting. (At least once, my DSL network went down after a lightning strike damaged the signal filter where the DSL split from the phone line.)

    I hope this helps.

    (I have an older router that does not give a local area connection if it loses the WAN from the modem.)

    Mode, Router, hub problems


    Since you cant swap out the hub with a known working one, then the best advice that I can give you is to try to plug in the computer directly into the modem. If the Local Area Connection is able to gain a connection then you know without a doubt it was the hub causing problems. They actually dont sell hub's anymore but switches, here is a link to bestbuy.com that has a listing of switches and their prices that you can check out --> <a href="http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp;jsessionid=LJWOPCFTAK0UDKC4D3EFAHA?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&id=pcat17071&type=page&st=Switches&sc=Global&cp=1&nrp=15&sp=&qp=&list=n&iht=y&usc=All+Categories&ks=960">Best Buy Switches</a>

    How do I remove linksys broadband WRT54GS Wireless-G router from my pc. and revert to just my Motorola, SB5101 surfboard cable modem. Tried simply removing the router and pluging the modem back in, but no...


    Hi intriguedkiw;

    Yes this is fairly simple. Open up your network connections and delete the icon for the local area connection to the Linksys router, and click on Add new connection to create a new connection to the Cable modem. The add wizard will walk you through connecting to the modem, just fill out the questions correctly, and you should be good to go.

    Good Luck,

    Mark
