You need to setup a wireless network for it to work and the dsl or the ethernet cable should be connected to the router and then to a desktop system.

I can only get wireless internet when plugged directly into my wireless modem. Why do I lose connection when I unplug?


If your wireless card in your computer/laptop has not been configured with your wireless router's settings then it cannot connect to the wireless router. That is why you lose Internet connect when you disconnect the LAN cable.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Losing wireless connection


Your phone frequency must be the same with frequency of your wireless router. To avoid this you access the web GUI of your router page..http://192.168.1.1..( in most cases)...and go to the wireless settings...look for the frequency tab and change the settings ( you can try 1-10). DO trial and error...

Have wireless signal but no IP


Starting from the obvious, check that the cables are installed correctly.
You have to have a cable that brings the internet to your place.
Connect that cable into the router's jack labeled Connection to Modem.
Then get another network cable and plug it into any other jack form the back of your wireless router, and the other end into your laptop, just to make sure you are getting connected.
Once you are sure you can surf the net, unplug the wire from your laptop, and you should be able to surf wirelessly.

And if you still can't connect, let me know to perform additional steps.

Lose internet connection when phone is in use


Your cordless and wireless mode is running on same frequency.

You can do couple of things...use the wireless mode in b instead of g in the router.

Else use a different cordless phone which runs in 5.8 or 6.0 frequency.

Hope this helps.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

First congratulation on your new wireless router, not the worst by these days :-)

You unplug your internet connection, where your computer now connects to the internet.
Then, you use the short cable to connect between the modem and the router in the one named WAN.
Next to this, is four called LAN, - you connect your computer to one of these (which one don’t matter).
Then you use the CD that came with the router, and follow each step.

It is very important that you set up the Admin password, so that your neighbor can’t access your router and change the setup.
Then in "Wireless ->Wireless security" setup one of the keys.
Allso the SSID, your own network "name".

Write everything down, as you have to set up the same on your laptop later.

If you need additional info, do come back, I’m here to help you.

Keep losing internet signal


Have you tried updating the firmware of your router? Updating the firmware of the router will fix that issue. Make sure after updating the router's firmware, hard reset the router. To hard reset it, Press the reset button on the back of the router for about 20 seconds, then unplug the power for 30 seconds then plug it back. Reconfigure the wireless settings of the router. Make sure to change the wireless channel of the router to channel 11 or 1 and not 6 to avoid interference.

Connection drop-outs


Is your laptop wireless adapter a compatable brand. It doesn't necessarily mean the router is bad, you may even be getting RADIO interference from a cordlees or a cell phone in it's path. Do you have the capability to plug a cat-5 cable directly into your laptop from the router when you lose wireless? Check the wireless channels and see about changing the channel on your cordless phone too. May not work, just a hunch.

Good Luck

USING LINKYS ROUTER/INTERNET NOT FOUND


Can you be a little more specific. What do you mean by "INTERNET PLUG IN"? Are you referring to the cable connecting your laptop to the router? The router to the modem? Or the modem to the internet (cable or DSL)?

What operating system?
