First of all, we all know that wifi means Wireless fidelity. So we can use it on our phones. it's like a wave. but when we want to connect our pc which doesn't have nic card then we have to use wire which connected to wifi\router. By the way, if we want to hook up a wireless router to a cable router we have to take some process. as like connect the router and the modem with an Ethernet cable. Most routers come packaged with a short Ethernet cable that you can use for this. otherwise, the isp provider gives us a short cable for pc and laptop when the internet connection complete with the router. then we can easily connect the wireless router to a cable router. Once the cable router is finished syncing-up and the cable router should provide an IP address to the wireless router.5d43bc0c-29d6-4430-ad46-65709aae9a2d.jpghttps://www.allhdd.com/networking-devices/router/

Have you secured your Linksys from unauthorized access?
The encryption code protects your wireless router from unauthorized access. The wireless card in your computer/laptop needs to be configured with the router's encryption settings before the computer/laptop can access the router.
For details on configuring the wireless router and the wireless card, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Unfortunately this model of router has no support for directly connecting anything other than a printer that already supports Ethernet.

Since that's not the case with most consumer printers you will need to buy a "Print Server" These are made by all the main manufacturers, and come with a collection of interfaces, USB / Parallel of the printer, and Ethernet or WiFi of the network side.

They all pretty much do the same thing so go for one that meets your needs.

You might be getting intermittent connection. What is the exact model and version of your router? check your firmware. It might need to be upgraded. =)

If you use DSL I would also check to make sure you are not being port blocked by your ISP. Some will block you if you exceed bandwidth on a particular port rather than throttling you or shutting you down entirely.

If the first solution did not help, try calling Linksys Tech support or try this http://technicalsupport.blog.friendster.com

Wired connections are faster than equivalently wireless connections (from/to the same node) and so your
experienced is quite normal.

Additional nodes divide the original bandwidth and denigrate the performance, which is why one tries to
maximize the original bandwidth (speed in MHz) of the connection to the gateway.

You can maximize your experience by having critical systems wired to the router, and this also provides
greater security than any encryption (which is another brake on your speed) necessary for a wifi

Make sure you have the fastest possible wifi card in your portable devices to maximize your speed.

It appears the connection between the Linksys and the modem is not working.
Try a different LAN cable.
Check the LAN cable from the modem to the Linksys, it should be connected to the WAN/Internet port on the Linksys.

After reformatting your dell 8400, did you reinstall all drivers of your devices? The linksys router won't be affected by the reformat. Your computer should still get connection from your router. This is a dell issue. If you have another computer connected and working with the router, that means the router is still functioning. Call Dell or linksys technical support. If they cannot help try this http://technicalsupport.blog.friendster.com

wat about the powerlight in the router....

Linksys... • Answered on May 18, 2018

Ethernet cable means CAT5 or UTP for others or LAN cable. The connection should be LAN port of your computer to LAN1 of your router.

And you can connect also the internet cable usually ethernet cable from your internet provider directly to (ethernet cable)WAN port of your router to get signal from your internet provider.

Also if you get this message, this could also means you still don't set up or configure the router's settings to communicate when your LAN and router. They must see each other to access the router's utility webpage.

No, but you can just reset the whole router and start from scratch. Hold the reset button on the rear of the router for 60 seconds and your will restore the unit to defaults, at which point you just need to reconfigure all of your configuration settings and password, as well as your wireless access code. Let me know if you require any additional assistance.
