    Have you tried to connect the network cable into the computer and BYPASS the ROUTER and just go straight from the modem to the PC. Then on your modem see if the light are flashing or id there is a connection. You might just have to reset the modem and by that just unplug it from the wall and wait a minute or two and replugged back into the wall.
    What you should do is unplugged both the router and the modem and 1st plug the modem wait for the light s then the router then connect the pc

Is there a way i can hook up internet to 2 desktops with 1 modem/router?


That is exactly what a router is for.
If your modem doesn't have multiple ethernet connections, then go out and buy a generic router (like linksys or belkin or cicso or netgear, etc.) and hook the WAN port of the router to the modem's ethernet connection, and then hook the computers into the multiple ethernet connections on the router.

I have a linksys WRT54G, and I'm trying to hook up a wi-fi connection. As of now, my internet is Internet Explorer, and my current modem is a motorola SB5101. The Motorola modem is hooked up directly to...


Hello
Try this

1 disconnect all wires,including power from the modem and router.
2 Find reset button on router usually in the back,need a pen tip or paper clip to hold it in.
3 Hold in reset for 1 min.
4 Reconnect modem first,power up.
5 Reconnect router second, power up.

Try changing the ethernet wire from the modem to the router.

So your going to have your cable coax wire to the modem.Then a ethernet wire from the modem to the router,then a ethernet wire from the router to the computer.

Sounds like you may have one wire in the wrong place.

There's no place on modem to hook router


Look for Ethernet jacks. You want to hook both your computer and your daughter's laptop to the router to out ports i.e. usually on the front side. The back side of router would hook using probably another Ethernet jack to your modem.

How do i hook my xbox up to my computer to get on xbox live?


hi,

just to elaborate on zombies post.....
Zombie is correct in what she says...but in 'Laymans' terms.........
you dont need to hook up your xbox to ur computer to get 'On Live' .
The easiest way is a direct 'Ethernet' lead (plugged into the back of ur 360....(dont worry....u cant put it in the wrong slot....an ethernet lead will only fit an ethernet slot)) & the other end into an empty Ethernet slot on your broadband suppliers router (the little box they sent you which is plugged into ur fone line)....there are usually '4' ethernet slots on most routers ! once the ethernet lead is plugged in just follow on screen instructions (xbox) for 'signing' up to 'Xbox Live' :-)

hope this is a little easier to understand ??

p.s. Dont get ripped off buying an ethernet lead if u havnt got one long enuf ! dont let the shops tell you ur better off with 'Gold' plated ones !! its rubbish !! u dont need gold plated !
the usual 'bay' shop (u know who i mean??) have numerous suppliers....u dont want to be paying more than £5 for at least a 5 metre one !

p.p.s dont bother with the wireless adapters !! there pants !


good luck :-)

Automatic installation failure


unless you were switching from DSL to cable Broadband, there usually wouldnt be much reason to rerun the software just because you got a new computer. when you ran the software the first time on the other computer, it was the router you were setting up, not the computer.
if the new computer is not getting internet when hooked to the router, try this.

1.turn off computer and unplug electricity from router and cable modem.

2. connect all ethernet cable to the right location. ethernet from modem to router goes in the non-numbered port, ethernet from your computer to router goes in numbered port.

3. plug in cable modem electricity first, wait for all its lights to come on like normal.(this part is important). the ethernet light on the modem (it might be labeled ethernet, link, pc link, or something similar) will not be lit, this is normal until you get to the next step

4. plug in the router electricity, give the router 2-3 minutes to get connected to the modem.

5. start up the computer, wait for everything to fully load and check internet again.


hope this helps.

Wireless set-up


Did you try to check if the cord is properly connected to the router? Check if you can connect to another LAN port. If the router is working on the another computer it means that there is something on part of your computer that is not working properly, Check also the Ethernet cable if working properly? or try to use another Ethernet cable to connect with the computer.

Setup wizard doesn't locate wireless router.


Any old ethernet cable should be fine. The setup disc is generally used only for initial setup to establish communications between router and pc, and to also configure your internet providers settings. You can access your router from your pc by going to http://192.168.1.1 and you can change settings in the router from there instead of using setup disc. If you insist on using the setup wizard disc you usually have to set your computer's ip address to a specific number and possibly reset router to default state (see manual or http://www.linksys.com).

My DSL was installed. I am trying to hook up my linksys wireless router, when I do the internet does not work. What am I doing wrong?


modem type ? make sure it is on modem-only mode if it is a home-gateway type.

connect modem ethernet to router internet port (located next to the power port).

press & hold for 10 secs. the routers reset switch (until all lights blink).

launch the internet connection wizard & select "computer is connected to a gateway / internet connection is always ON"
