Make sure that the cable/dsl modem is connected to the blue port on the Linksys router that say's internet and your computer to any of the yellow ethernet ports. Check what is the IP address of your computer by typing ipconfig on the command prompt(assuming your using Windows, to open command prompt click start and go to Run and type cmd, a black windows will open normally it will say C:\Document\Settings\Owner>. Your computer should obtain an IP address of 192.168.1.x, open Internet Explorer and type this address on the address bar http://192.168.1.1 when you get a prompt for a username and a password, leave the username blank and type "admin" for a password from there you can now check the entire settings of your linksys router, check the Status and make sure your router is getting a valid Internet IP address if not you may require manually setting up the configuration of your ISP on the router.

Share Your Internet Connection with More Than One Computer- The Easy Way


Here is a simple way share your home internet connection with more than one computer. This will work for both wired and wireless and doesn't require alot of technical or computer skills to accomplish. I'm sure there are other ways, but if you're looking for a simple repeatable setup, here it is.

If you've got a dsl connection through a dsl modem, this TIP will work for you.
If you've got a cable modem, this TIP will work just as well.

Here's a list of what you'll need.

  1. Dsl or cable modem that works on your system and you can access internet with one computer (If you're using the internet, most likely you've got this already).
  2. Wired (Ethernet) or Wireless Router (wifi routers have 4-6 ethernet ports also).
  3. For Wired: Ethernet cable to connect modem to router.
  4. For Wireless: Wifi compatible computer or wifi card for your computer (follow manufacturer's instructions for proper install).
Procedure:
  1. Turn all components off. This includes anything on your existing network- computer, modem, printer and any router you may currently be using.
  2. With all power off, connect an ethernet cable between your modem and your new cable/dsl router(wired or wireless).
  3. Turn on the power to your new router only and let it boot up completely.
  4. Turn on the dsl/cable modem and allow it to boot. Since the router was booted first, the modem with recognize the router's MAC address (ethernet numerical address) and connect that address to the internet.
  5. Connect all the other components onto the router with the ethernet cables as needed and turn on the components- no particular order is necessary after the router and modem are booted. Your router will assign MAC addresses to all the ethernet components. Once the MAC address is assigned, your computer should work correctly with the internet and shouldn't drop out when the second computer is turned on.
  6. For wireless connections, boot up your computer with the properly installed Wifi card, airport card and allow it to "find" your router. Once you get confirmation of the signal, you're good to go.
Following this procedure will allow your modem, your router to use their designed software to connect you without a bunch of programming. You will actually enjoy having more than one computer sharing an internet connection.

Remember this procedure and follow the steps again if you lose power and have to reboot your network.

I have two ParkerVision WR1500 4-port Wireless DSL/Cable Routers. The first one I have connected my Ethernet Cable from my modem to the WAN port. This is where I get my Internet Signal. My understanding...


You won't get internet connection that way because there is no connection between the first parkervision and the 2nd one.
Best way is use only one parkervision router. Connect WAN port to modem for internet, 1st lan port connect to your pc and 2nd lan port connect to 2nd pc in other room. 2nd way is, use only one parkervision. Connect WAN port to modem for internet, 1st lan port connect to your pc, setup wireless SSID and connect your 2nd pc to this router for internet wirelessly. Assuming your 2nd pc has wireless capability.

How do you set the router up!!! no diagram to hook up to desktop


How you connect it depends on how you plan to use it. Let me explain:

Some people have a dsl line (high speed internet connection) and their modem from their internet provider only has room for one computer cable to connect and use the internet. If the customer has more then one desktop computer they want to connect to the internet, they will need to buy a router. A router provides multiple ports for several computers to connect to the internet at the same time.

If you have a dsl modem already and bought a router to add additional computers to your network - then follow the instructions below to set it up:

Connect your phone cord from the wall into the dsl modem. Plug in the power cable from the dsl modem to the wall and turn it on. Connect an ethernet cable to the dsl modem (ethernet cables are the ones that look like a regular telephone cord but the ends are a little larger) and connect the other end to your router. Make sure you plug this cable into the port marked "ethernet" on your router. There is only one port for your internet connection line coming into the router, the rest of the ports are for adding computers only. Some routers say the word "ethernet" near the port for the internet connection. Others have a picture near or or brackets around it to show that it is different then the others. Plug in the power cord to your router and turn it on. Make sure you turn on your modem first and let it warm up before connecting your router. Modem power on first, then router power on - always.

Now connect an ethernet cable to your router and connect the other end to the pc you wish to use on the internet. Do not turn on your pc until the ethernet cord is attached. Your dsl modem has to be powered up first, followed by your router and then your pc. All in that order.

Your computer should automatically sense the internet connection upon start up. You can verify that your connection is installed correctly and that your pc is sensing it by looking at the bottom right side of your screen near the clock area. You should see a picture of a computer monitor that represents your internet connection status. Sometimes they glow green when they are healthy. Sometimes they show a red X on top of them if they are disconnected from the internet. If you can't find the Icon for your internet connection on the bottom right side of your screen, unplug the ethernet cable from the back of your pc - while watching the bottom right side area and plug it back in again. Watch for a change to locate the icon. Sometimes there is a downward pointing arrow near the clock which needs to be clicked on to open up the area and view the icons.

Thats all! One line from the modem to the router - another line from the router to the pc - and the internet should be up and running fine.

If you bought a router combination modem - then its the same as above - just without a separate dsl modem. (i.e. Connect the power cable from the router/modem to the wall. Connect the ethernet cable to the port marked "ethernet" for your internet connecton and connect the other end of the cord to your pc. Then turn your pc on. Router/modem power on first and pc power on second in that order)

All the lights on your modem should be green and steady - except for the one marked internet or connection which is usually flashing and moving. If you have any red or yellow lights then you need to troubleshoot and correct the problem before your internet connection will work.

> excellent connectivity

This refers to the wireless connection between your computer & your router, not to the connection from your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) out through your ISP to the Internet.

If you use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer directly to the cable/DSL modem, do you still have "intermittent" problems?
If so, then your router (or other wireless devices, such as your neighbours' router, or your neighbours' wireless telephones that are trying to operate on the same broadcast frequency) is the problem.

Belkin router can't connect to internet


This is part solution, part clarification request: When you say that you installed the setup software on your laptop, setup software for which: the modem, or the belkin router? Also what type of internet service do you have - Cable? DSL? If you are not sure, list your ISP. What operating systems do you have on your laptop and your main computer?

You say that you connected the modem to your main computer - I am assuming that you mean that you connected your modem with a network or ethernet cable (the one with a connector that looks similar to but larger than a telephone's connector) to your computer's ethernet card, or NIC, port. Is anything connected by ethernet cable to the Belkin router? If you have not connected the modem directly to the router, it will not connect to the internet, and anything connecting to the Belkin router will not be able to access the internet as well.

Try this: disconnected the power from your modem, then disconnect power from your router, and disconnect any ethernet cables from computer & modem, or computer and router. Connect an ethernet cable from the modem to the Belkin Router. (Ensure that you have plugged in the ethernet cable on the router into a port that is either set aside from others, or indicates "Internet", WAN, or something similar - it should be marked either with a different color, labled, or both). Now power on your modem. Wait until you see a steady "ready" light, green ethernet light, or the light usually lit for that model indicating it has completed its bootup tests and the internet connection is ready.
Next, ensure the ethernet cable is connected from the modem to correct WAN or "internet" port on the Belkin Router, then power up the router. Once the router boots up completely, plug in a cable from your computer's (main computer) NIC or ethernet card or port, to a port on the Belkin Router (there should be more than one port available, generally numbered "1, 2, 3" and so on - in a group, seperate from the WAN or internet port). Once you are sure you have the cable plugged into one of the correct ports, and if you have windows, restart your main computer.

Now on your main computer, check to see if you have an internet connection. If you do, you can now resume running the router's software setup on your laptop, which sounds as though it was walking you thru the setup process to connect you via wireless connection to the internet. Report back if you have any success, or if you have any further problems, and best of luck! Hope that info helps

I have a Cayman 3347w wireless router and I am trying to use one of the wired slots to connect my xbox 360 to the internet. the xbox will not connect. is this router xbox compatable?


Please try the following steps below;

To make a router connection to Xbox LIVE:
  1. Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
  2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your router.
  3. With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
  4. With the third Ethernet cable, connect one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
  5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
  6. Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
  7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console and sign in with your profile.
  8. If this is the first time you've turned on your Xbox 360 console, see Create Your Gamer Profile to get started with both the Xbox 360 system and Xbox LIVE play.
If you're unable to connect to Xbox LIVE, you can try to diagnose the problem right on your console. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings, then select Network Settings (setup XBOX using Automatic Configuration DHCP), Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

Hope this helps!

Most routers only have Ethernet connectors, so you should connect the cable modem to the router with an Ethernet cable. Generally, it goes into a port labeled WAN or Internet.
