I have a static ip that wont access the WAN through router.

I want to make sure that you aren't confusing the routers DHCP setting for your ISP, versus, setting the router as DHCP so that your clients can receive an address inside your wireless router. If you go to this page, you can find the routers user guide manual, you'll only need to make sure you input the correct version for your router either version 1 or version 2.


On page 21 of the pdf manual. You'll find information on setting the DHCP server settings. Here you can assign a static IP to your clientl. The only thing you'll need from that device is the MAC address.

Best of Luck.

hi gusbarb, thank you for using fixya. In using your linksys router on a satellite network, it is much like using it on a non-pppoe dsl connection.

the router uses IP address and it may have the same range as that of the satellite connection. TO have the conflict resolved please log-in to the router's GUI then on the first page of the settings, change the local IP address to

once this is done, you may also enable the router's MAC cloning. this feature is used by the router to fake a modem (satellite) to think that it is a computer connecting to it and not a router.

you may refer to this link to change the IP address as well as the MAC Cloning.


hope this helps

"Local Access Only"

You need to look on the back of your router and find the small reset button. Push it and everything should reconfigure. If not Go into your device manager and see if you can find something called a NIC card or Network Interface Card, or something called an Ethernet card, if those are not listed, it means your driver has been deleted somehow. You can go to the manufacturers website and download a new driver.

Getting Dropped

I would recommand you upgrade the firmware, if you already have the lastest firmware, then reload that same firmware.

These firmwares can be found on Linksys's website under support/downloads.

Best of luck.

Router works except for the wireless FEATURE!

If you disconnect it from the internet (i.e. unplug the internet cable) the router will not be able to communicate with the internet - therefor it will not work. Leave the router connected until you no longer require internet use, then simply turn it off.

Unable to access Internet, WAN IP Address present

First you will need to open up your internet browser (Internet Explorer/Netscape) and go to You will be prompted for a username and password. By default there is no username and the password is admin. Once you arrive at the routers setup page click on the Advanced tab. Once the page finishes loading, you'll find you will be on the "Filters" tab. Look down and make sure that there are no numbers other than 0 in the boxes on that page. If there are, then you will need to replace them with 0's and click Apply, then Continue. Once you've done that, you're going to want to look for Dynamic Routing at the top, and then click on it. Once that page finishes loading, make sure that the "Working Mode" is set to Gateway, not ?Router?, and that tx and rx are set to Disable not RIP-1 or RIP-2. If a static IP address has been set on the computer, verify the gateways matches the Router's LAN IP Address. If there aren't any installed gateways, add the Router's LAN IP Address. When setting static IP Addresses, you must also input the DNS servers. For more information on assigning static IP addresses, please see the related article on assigning static IP addresses. If you?re still having difficulties, please contact Linksys Product Support.

STEP 1: Before You Begin In order to set up your Linksys Router, be sure to first have the following: 1. A Linksys Router. 2. A DSL modem. 3. A working computer that can be wired in directly to the router for initial configuration and testing. 4. Two (2) standard Ethernet network cables. Linksys Routers come with one (1) standard network cable that you can use. 5. The PPPoE DSL username and password assigned by your Internet Service Provider. Depending on the provider, your username format might be similar to username, vzn123456, or an e-mail address ([email protected]). If you are not sure what your username and password are, contact your Internet Service Provider for more information. STEP 2: Check Your Internet Connection Before installing your Linksys Router, it is important to first verify that you can successfully access the Internet by connecting directly to your modem (without your Linksys Router installed). 1. If you are connecting for the first time, follow the instructions provided by your provider to set up your modem and computer for online access. 2.

Connect the network cable that you just removed to the Internet port (or WAN port) located on the back of your Linksys Router. Your modem should now be connected to your Linksys Router. 4. Connect a second network cable back into your computer (into the same port that was disconnected in #2). 5. Connect the other end of the second network cable to one of the numbered ports located on the back of your Linksys Router (labeled 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.). Your computer should now be connected to your Linksys Router. The following diagram shows how your network should be connected. Verify that your connections are correct, and continue to the next step. 6. Plug the included power adapter into the router?s Power port.
