Shame, as I have found this to be a good router. There are so many things that could be wrong, but here are a couple of suggestions.

On HOME NETWORK SETTINGS status; if the connect box is showing, give it a try.
On ADSL SETTINGS isp settings; set connect type to Always connected. Recheck all the ISP settings.

In my experience of several routers, this one has the BEST G performance.

Connecting a Linksys WRT54GL. no internet connection detected


The ISP modem connects to the main LAN port on the router. The PC connects to any other port. Done. You should have internet via wire at this point.

Cannot connect to internet today. Yesterday all was well.


If the modem works and a desktop pc works through the Ethernet port of the router, then try plugging the pc laptop into the same Ethernet port using the same cable as the desktop. Most laptops have an Ethernet port.

If this works, then the problem is the wireless access?

Check you still have the wireless set-up on the pc laptop, if not re-install it.

My computer won't connect to the internet wired or wireless. What is wrong, what can I do to fix this?


Hi.

First of all restart your PC. While the PC is restarting go to the modem and router and remove power from them for 30 seconds, then plug them back in.
Wait for around 1 minute for the router and modem to reconnect then go back to the PC and try to connect to the internet.


Please let me know how you get on.

Good luck.

Connecting Multiple Computers
thru a router to internet






Tips on choosing the right network can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/install.mspx





Since you said there are other computer in the house I assume they will all
go thru the router. I also assume you are using ethernet to connect the new
computer so it will be a "wired" connection. A rounter can also have wireless
connections if the other computers have wireless internet on the other
computers.



To connect more than one computer to the Internet, you need a router.
A router allows you to connect several computers to each other and to the
Internet. The router sits between your computers and the modem provided by your
ISP. You connect the router to the modem, and then connect all your computers to
the router.

To connect a router and multiple computers to the
Internet


Contact an Internet service provider (ISP) and have them configure
an Internet connection to your home. If possible, have the ISP place the modem
in the room with your primary computer.



Connect your router to your modem in one of the two following
ways:

If you currently have a computer connected directly to your
modem:
Unplug the network cable from the back of your computer, and
plug it into the port labeled Internet, WAN,
or WLAN on the back of your router.



If you don't currently have your computer connected to the
Internet:
Plug one end of a network cable (included with your router)
into your modem, and the other end of the network cable into the
Internet, WAN, or WLAN port
on your router.

Plug in your router. After a minute or two, the Internet, WAN, or WLAN light
on your router should light up, indicating that it has successfully connected to
your modem.

Determine whether your computer has a network adapter, and add one if
necessary. Instructions to determine if you have a network adaptor or to install
a Network adaptor can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/netadapter.mspx



Shut down your computer by clicking Start and then clicking
Turn Off Computer. Then click Turn Off.



Connect the network cable to your computer's network adapter.



68573-connect-computer-small.jpg


Connect the other end of the network cable to your network equipment.



68573-connect-to-router-small.jpg


Start your computer and log on to Windows. Windows automatically detects that
you are connected to the Internet.

Repeat steps 6, 7, and 8 for each one of your computers. If you have a
computer in a different room you can find instructions at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/wired.m

Philips CGA5722 MODEM what is the WEP / WPA key and where can it be found? I have wireless transmission but need the key for my modem


The WEP and WPA are 2 most common encryptions found in wireless connections. The keys controlling them were inputted by you during the setting of the wireless router and are needed every time you connect to it. If you don't want the hassle and you don't use that pc for critical information (like banking), you can simply stop the encryption altogether.

Cannot finish installation (Belkin F5D8633-4 wireless modem router N mimo)


ok, obvious questions first:

Do you have a different modem from TALKTALK? can you connect to the internet through that?

if so, you may not have to set a username and password for the belkin router: just connect the belkin router's internet port to the talktalk modem and let the talktalk modem handle the automatic connection.

do you know what protocol the talktalk ISP uses?  it's probably PPPOE; make certain that your belkin router is set to the correct protocol.  if you just hook it up to the talktalk modem though, you probably won't have to specificy a protocol at all.
