Download Routing Commander program from www.routercommander.com, it will automatically forward ports and setup the router. Another option is go to router's web interface and set up it manually according to router's User Guide.

If you mean a normal wire that connects from your router into your computer such as this - rj11_to_rj11_broadband_adsl_modem_cable.jpg
Then type in "ADSL CABLE" into ebay and you'll be able to purchase one or two at a fair length and price.

the available wireless networks (you probably know how to do this) and then Your laptop is doing something wrong and several possibilities exist. Does your PC indicated that it is connected to "your" wireless network - but you are still unable to get to the internet? If so, your WAP Key is incorrect on your laptop. Go into your wireless connection manager (software) and find the stored "profiles" (Why? Each time you connect to a network and type in the network key, a profile is created to store the wireless network name and the key associated with it). If your PC is storing the name of your network along with an incorrect key, then your PC will not pass data back and forth to the router. So that's one solution. Another is may be that your PC is not connecting up to your 2-wire at all, but rather to a neighbors wireless router. You want to find the list of available wireless networks and individually select each network (not including your network) and then click on "delete". This will put a small red "x" right beside the name of the network and your PC will no longer try to connect to it. This is a very good way to troubleshoot because it will prevent your PC from connecting to any other wireless networks except for your own. Therefore if your router is going "up and down" it will be easier to identify the problem. So, a third possibility is that your router is going up and down. Sometimes power surges or AC power instability causes the router to go down. If your router is down when you turn on your PC, the PC will not find the router's signal and will then attempt to connect to a neighboring wireless connection. So, you may try turning your PC back off and then power-cycling the router (and/or) router/modem. Then, turn back on the power to your PC and if it connects to your wireless then it's not your PC settings but the router causing the issue. There's still more - your security software may be causing the PC not to connect - but that's a hold 'nother ball game. hope it helps. Keith

You need to find out what ports your ip cameras use, and then setup port forwarding on your router. If you have 1 box that controls all the cameras, you just need to forward port 80 traffic to that box. If you have multiple cameras with NO main junction box, you will need to go into the setup on each camera, and specify a port to use.
Then in the router, set up port forwarding to forward each different port, to the camera it goes with. Then when you want to see the camera from home you would type the ip address in the browser, then a colon, then the port number --> IPADDRESS:81

The picture looks like it is a 2wire DSL modem. If this is service from AT&T/SBC you should have gotten filters to put between the phone and the wall jack make sure those are installed. Power off the 2wire modem ( unplug power )Then disconnect all computers and routers you may have from the 2wire router. Plug one computer in to the router then turn on the computer first then plug the power back into the 2wire router. Wait and see if you get an uplink. If not go to this webpage http://homeportal.gateway.2wire.net
The password is probably on the serial number sticker on the 2wire.

Once you are there click on Broadband Link icon. If it says connected you are good to go. If it does not then call the internet provider for registration of 2Wire router to the service

this is because your PC is picking up the WRTG54G which is an internal signal booster (internal gateway) to the ROUTER ITSELF.
WRTG54G is in the middle like an interpreter.
The WRTG54G is not connect to ROUTER>
thus the laptop is not connected, like sprinkler attached to the end of a hose but the HOSE not attached to the water faucet.
turn OFF laptop. RESET WRTG54G (there is a small hole you can stick a pencil in there and hold down for 15 long seconds; UNPLUG power.
PLUB back in and hit auto config button.
let WRT54G pick up a new IP ADDRESS from router. once that is done turn on laptop and it should pick up a new signal with new IP address assigned to it by the WRTG54G.
