Make sure that you are using one of the 4 slots for ethernet on the router to connect to your computer.

are you able to go online if the modem and the computer is directly connected using the ethernet cable ?

    Here's what you have :


    • 1 RJ-11 ADSL port (for the phone cord)

    • 4 RJ-45 10/100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet LAN switch ports with auto MDI/MDIX (for ethernet cable going to the computer)

    • Built-in 802.11g WLAN (wi-fi)

    • Console port (don't mind)
    The issue that are experiencing is - While the ethernet cables are securely connected, does it say on your computer that the ethernet cable is not connected ?

    OR

    Is it the Installation Program telling you about the error / warning message ?

That means that you are using the installer for the modem. This might be the one causing the problem.

While plugged in to your ADSL modem router

Click start then run then type in CMD in the command prompt type in IPCONFIG if it does not show media state disconnected then the drivers are ok. What is the IP that you get and the GATEWAY.

Take note of the gateway. Open your internet explorer browser then type in the GATEWAY address in the address bar.

AFter that call your ISP and ask for the VCI VPI settings as well as the ENCAPSULATION. Just enter that into the modem and you should be ok.

DONT USE THE INSTALLATION CDS any longer

    Scrap this instruction "AFter that call your ISP and ask for the VCI VPI settings as well as the ENCAPSULATION. Just enter that into the modem and you should be ok. "Scrap this instruction





    Connect the modem to the router internet port. Then in the page on the browser just select the settings for your provider and save your settings.

Sometimes you need to connect the cable to the router, then restart the system while its connected so as it can give it the default ip address for set up and engage the lan cable

    Hi,

    In case you want to configure it using the USB cable on the wireless router , you need the USB driver for the same. The same can be downloaded from the following website

    http://tinyurl.com/3a7rmu



    The above link also provides the quick installation guide , that would help you configure the router aswell.



    If you need furthur instructions feel free to ask again

Ensure the cable is plugged on one of the ports 1..4, try a replacement cable.

    Ensure the cable is plugged on one of the ports numbered from 1 to 4, some router has an additional Ethernet RJ45 socket for WAN.
    Try a replacement cable, usually it is a Cat.6 Ethernet cable, terminated with RJ45 connector (slightly bigger than phone RJ11).
    Check on Windows (or mac or linux) that the ethernet card is working.
    Check on device manager that the network card does not have a yellow sign on it.

    Try also reinstalling ethernet card drivers.
    Keep drivers ready , either from disk or download.
    Go to device manager and remove Network Adapter.
    Restart computer and reinstall drivers.
    If network card works on a different router or network device (hub, switch) then you do not need to install the drivers.


  • Ginko
    Ginko Aug 31, 2008

    If your computer is telling you "no network connection / cable unplugged".

    First you need to try a replacement cable, see if port led corresponding to port where cable is connecting on router is lit on.
    If your computer card has a led near to the socket, this must also be on.

    Here is download for the driver: Softpedia Mirror (US)
    Download, unzip and run the drivers for adapter card after you test the cable.

    To use wireless the router must be configured first.
    If wireless on this router is already configured, yes you install an USB wireless adapter (install drivers first), put in encryption key when asked, and both laptop or PC can connect to router through wireless.

    If router wireless is not configured yet you need to access router with a cable to configure it.

    If your laptop has a LAN (ethernet) port connect it to the router with a cable. The cable must be working. If you use same cable and it is not even working on the laptop then the cable is probably faulty.

When I won't connect with my tv its say unable to connect to roku .(error cod 011)what that mean ?And what I hove to do


You have to temporarily disable your wireless router firewall to connect your Roku the firewall is blocking the Roku. If you have a Roku that has an Ethernet connection you can just plug an Ethernet cable from the Roku to to Router.

If your provider, Comcast etc.., provided the router call them and they will assist you. If you purchased the router it should be in the manual how to access the settings.

Wht should i do to conenct to internet


1. Uninstall or disable all Internet-sharing applications, proxy software and security software such as anti-virus programs or firewalls. Although every program is different, if you choose to uninstall one, you can typically do so by clicking "Start," "Control Panel" and "Add/Remove Software" and then selecting the software you wish to remove. Because Homeportal 1000 comes with its own versions of these programs, this step is essential to avoid conflicts.

2. Connect Homeportal's AC power adapter to the back of your router, and then plug it into a power outlet. The green power light should come on.

3. Connect the router to your
computer. If you're using Ethernet, connect the Ethernet cable to both the router and the Ethernet jack on the back of your computer. If you plan to use USB, follow the same procedure using the USB cable and ports, instead. For a wireless connection, ensure that your wireless card is correctly installed on your PC.

4. Connect the phone cable to the back of your router and then plug it into a phone jack. This will allow the Homeportal 1000 to receive DSL signals from the phone company.

5. Place the Homeportal 1000 installation CD into your CD drive and follow the on-screen instructions to install the necessary software and until finish installation.

Hello. It appears my router is blocking VPN access to the office server. I can connect using the ethernet cable so have isolated the problem to the router firewall. How do I get around this? Thanks


Hi
I will make a couple of assumptions on you setup. First, you have some type of highspeed internet. You have a retail type router/firewall plugged into your internet modem. You are using a VPN Client software installed on a PC or Laptop. By stating that when you connected using your Ethernet cable, you were plugged directly into the Internet modem.

Basically, what you have here is a configuration issue with your Router/Firewall. I use the Cisco VPN Client Software from home. This software uses UDP over TCP port 10000. Your VPN Client will use something along this line as well. So, you need to do one of two things here. Determine what Protocol and Port your VPN software uses. Login into you Router/Firewall and add that to your outbound allowed traffic. Or login into your Router/Firewall and configure it to allow all outbound traffic.

If you are not sure how to do this, the documentation that came with your Router should contain a Tech Support number to call. They can walk you through this in short order. Otherwise, post your EXACT make and model of your Router/Firewall and I will try to get the information for you.

Hope this helps.

I have a cable modem and wish to add Wireless. I have a Netgear 54 Mbps Wireless ADSL Firewall Router DG834GB v3 but not the instructions to install it. Not sure what goes into where from the original...


In general, the ethernet cable from your cable modem will plug into the WAN port on your wireless router. If you had a PC plugged into the cable modem, that PC will now plug into one of the other free ports on the wireless router.
You can get documentation and install guides from netgear's site. try this link:

Can't get it to reinstall


You must reset the router first. Hold the reset button at the back of your router for 30 seconds then unplug the power for 1 minute then plug it back in. In setting it up, make sure to use a good ethernet cable and disable any firewall on your computer. Good luck

My laptop has vista installed via usb from virgin cable modem.what must i do to install a belkin wireless g mimo router using ethernet connection?


Huh? You installed Vista through your Virgin Cable Modem? What on earth does that mean?

Are you trying to ask "How do I install my Belkin Wireless G Router?"

If that is the actual question, here is the answer:

1) Unplug your cable modem from your computer.
2) Plug the cable modem into the router using a Ethernet Cable.
3) Plug the router into the computer using another Ethernet Cable.
4) Plug in the power supply for the cable modem and then the router.

(If your cable modem is ONLY USB, and doesn't have a spot to plug in a Ethernet Cable, you'll have to call Virgin and replace the modem with a model that does)

Once everything is up and running, you should be on the internet as soon as the computer starts.

(You may want to log into the router and disable the "Wireless" settings if you aren't using them to stop others from gaining entry to your network)

I HAVE A PROB WITH MY WIRELESS ROUTER LINKSYS EVERYTHING IS CONECTED RIGHT AND AND SAYS STILL CAINT FIND INTERNET HELP ME


go to linksys.com

I think you have to enter an ip to access your router like 100,101,1 or something and it goes into your router setings. Otherwise you can just unplug your ethernet, unplug your router. Then plug in your router..wait for the green light, then plug in your eithernet. Sometimes you need to disable the hardware firewall and install a software firewall...those things are hard to work around.

Zyxel P660HW with vista issues


If you are connecting via usb you will need to install all software and drivers on your pc before plugging modem in. If you did install them already you may need to reinstall
If you connect through ethernet (RJ45 terminated network cable), you may have a firewall preventing regular acess to network.

solutions

1) restart pc and modem it may work just with this

2)USB only: reinstall all modem software, then restart all.

3)Ethernet only (network cable), |Restart all and disable firewall. If this does not work you may need to change network settings on your computer (fo example change IP from static to dynamic).
