How do the cables connect? Which cable goes where?


Step 1:
Connect the broadband modem to the router's WAN or Internet port.
Step 2:
Connect the computer to any available numbered port (1, 2, 3 or 4).
NOTE: In this example, we'll connect the computer to port number 3.

NOTE: It is advisable to connect the computer to one of the Ethernet (1, 2, 3 or 4) ports when setting up the router for the first time. If you have successfully configured the router using a wireless computer, unplug the Ethernet cable which connects the computer to the router for you to have wireless Internet connection. For instructions on how to connect the wireless computer to go online using the Linksys router, click here.

Step 3:
Make sure the power adapter is plugged in to an available power outlet.

Set up a Linksys Wireless Router
  • 1 Choose and purchase a Linksys router, taking into account your budget and computing habits.
  • 2 Attach the antennas to the Linksys wireless router.
  • 3 Place the router in a central location, making sure it's not surrounded by metal. (A signal can't be obtained through metal.) The router should be located so that the distance between clients (computers) is somewhat equal. This will create a better connection.
  • 4 Plug the Ethernet cable into the "Internet" port on the back of the Linksys router.
  • 5 Connect a computer to the router by plugging another Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your computer and attaching the other end to one of the available ports on the back of the router. You can choose any port except the one labeled "WAN."
  • 6 Plug the router into an electrical outlet.
  • 7 Wait for the power light to stop flashing, at which time the router is finished booting up. While the router is booting, the power light will be blinking. This process may take a few minutes to complete.
  • 8 Reboot your computer so it can access a new IP address from the router through the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
  • Configure the Router
  • 1 Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter."
  • 2 Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.
  • 3 Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."
  • 4 Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.
  • 5 Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.
  • 6 Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.

    3. Type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar of your web browser.
    4. Log-on to the Linksys WRT-150N Router with these log-on credentials:
    Username: linksys (lower-case)
    Password: admin (lower-case)
    5. Click on the "Clone PC MAC Address" tab.
    6. Click the "Clone PC MAC Address" button.
    7. Click "Save", click "Continue".
    8. Click the "Wireless Security" tab.
    9. Choose "WPA2 Personal - TKIP/AES" for encrypted security.
    10. Enter encryption password (passphrase).
    11. Click "Save", click "Continue".
    12. Exit the web browser.
    13. Disconnect the LAN cable from the computer and Port #1 on the Linksys WRT-150N Router.
    In about 5 seconds, your wireless connection should be up and running.

    I have a Linksys 5-port switch connected to a cox cable modem and I'm trying to use it to connect two computers at the same time. Only one works at a time and I have to reset the switch and modem to get...


    Because the cox cable modem will only bind to one mac address (computer). You need to purchase a router, any router linksys, dlink, will do, get a wireless one so you can setup wifi as well. Plug your cox cable modem into the wan port on the router, plug your pc into one of the ethernet switch ports, you can use your web browser IE to login to the router and secure your wifi signal, power cycle your modem to make it bind to the new router. Most linksys dlink are programmed for a class c network, you could in theory put 254 devices, computers on your connection now.

    I have a cable modem. from the cable modem I go to a 5 port hub


    That is because most cabel internet providers only gives you one public IP. Please go to a Best Buy, Office Depot, Staples, Walmart, or Targer, and ask for a LinkSys Router. The router will do NAT (Network Address Translation) that will allow more than one PC share the single public IP. This will solve your problem and will cost an estimated $30.00. The router is simple to hook up, just plug the cabel from your modem into the Internet/WAN port on the router. And the two computers into any of the other ports. Be sure to unplug both cable modem and router then plug up the cable modem first, once the ready light is on, plug up the router.

    3. connect the router to your computers ehternet port with a second piece of ethernet cable


    you can use catagory 5 ethernet cable , or catagory 6

    Most linksys routers have 4 to 5 ethernet ports to connect computers to.

    One of the ports will be marked as the one to connect to your DSL or Cable Modem

    Usually when looking at the back of the router the WAN port will be located to the far left.

    2 0f 4 ports do not work


    It sounds as though the ports on the cable/dsl router as bad. There really isn't anything you can do. It just happens. The typical shelf life of those routers is about 3-4 years. You could go out and buy another one or if you just need more ports go out and buy a little 5 port switch and plug it into one of the working ports and your comptuers into the 5 port switch.
