Absolutely, the Gateway Router is OS independent. All you need is a computer with a properly configured Ethernet LAN adapter and a web browser to configure the Gateway Router. Any platform that supports Ethernet & TCP/IP is compatible with the router. You may need to provide additional hardware & software (i.e. Ethernet cards and/or software drivers) to ensure that all clients operate with the router.

I want to know how I can re-set my 3Com 3crwe955275 wireless access point to its default factory settings. Can anyone help?


1 Remove power from the Gateway. 2 Disconnect all your computers and the cable/DSL modem from the Gateway router. 3 Using a straight through Ethernet cable, connect the Ethernet Cable/DSL port on the rear of the Gateway to any one of the LAN ports. 4 Re-apply power to the Gateway. The Alert LED will flash as the Gateway starts up, and after approximately 30 seconds will start to flash more slowly (typically 2 seconds on, 2 seconds off). Once the Alert LED has started to flash slowly, remove power from the Gateway. 5 Remove the cable connecting the Cable/DSL port to the LAN port, and reconnect one of your computers to one of the Gateway LAN ports. 6 Re-apply power to the Gateway, and when the start-up sequence has completed, browse to: http://192.168.1.1 and run the configuration wizard. You may need to restart your computer before you attempt this. 7 When the configuration wizard has completed, you may reconnect your network as it was before

CNet wireless router Model CWR-854V. is causing my Ethernet lite on my DSL modem to blink causing me not to be able to get on internet. Changed all cables no help disconnected Router and modem works...


Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer directly to the DSL modem, bypassing the router, turn the modem off, turn the modem on, wait 60 seconds, and restart your computer.

Does the Ethernet lamp still blink when Windows is booting, and when you are using the Internet?

Turn the DSL modem off.
Turn the router off.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the modem, and connect it from the computer to the router.
Turn the router on, and wait 60 seconds, then turn your computer on.
After Windows is running, click Start.
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for output like: default gateway........ 192.168.123.456
If the string starts with '192.168', then your computer *IS* "talking" to the router.
Now, use an Ethernet cable to connect the WAN port on the router to the DSL modem.
Turn the modem on.
Turn the router off.
Turn the router on.
Wait 60 seconds.
Restart your computer, and you should be able to web-surf.

Can I use AT&T 2701HG-B 2W Wireless Gateway DSL


yes, you can use them together. they'll find each other at protocol layer 2 (bridge) and layer 3 (router),
and route packets appropriately. Check their manuals to make sure that their HTTP management page ip addresses are different - say 192.168.0.0 for one router and 192.168.1.1 for the other - so that you
can manage them separately without disconnecting them.
You'll want to manage them separately to assign them different wireless-N channels. Channel 6 is
the default, and allowing both to compete on the same channel is a bad idea - give each its own
wi-fi channel. There are 11 wireles 802.11n channels, labeled 1-11.

Diagram: DSL === AT&T 2701HG-B ---------- NetGear router --------------- desktop computer

Each link in the diagram above is an ethernet (802.3 10baseT) cable (except the DSL cable,
which is twisted pairs), and wireless devices can
hop onto the Internet by wirelessly connecting to either the AT&T 2701 or the NetGear router.

Hello. I bought this modem with wi fi ,dsl router. How to set it to use this modem as a router.I want to connect my pc with lan cord & use wifi connection with my laptop and phones.


Turn DSL-router off.
Turn Actiontec off.
Turn computer off.

Connect:

* telephone-port in wall <--- 4-pin telephone wire --> DSL router

* Ethernet port on DSL-router <-- Ethernet cable --> WAN port on router

* One of the LAN ports on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on your computer.

Turn DSL-router on, and wait for it to fully load, i.e., pattern of lamps becomes repeatable.

Turn Actiontec on, and wait for it to fully load, i.e., pattern of lamps becomes repeatable.

Turn computer on, and boot it.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for output like: Default Gateway....192.168.123.456
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://192.168.123.456 (or whatever numbers you saw)
Login to your router
Configure the wireless adapter inside the router
(enter an SSID, choose 'WPA' encryption, enter a password)
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer
Click "View Available Wireless Networks",
and select the SSID that you provided.
Enter the password that you provided.

IP address for the router was changed to a number I do not know. Is there a way to get back to 192.168.2.1?


Is there any computer connected to the router with the cable ?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Check the Ip address and default gateway. default gateway will be the current Ip address of your router.
Once you open the router set up page with the current IP address , you will be able to change the IP address of the router

Cd won't install Installshield error 1628


You do not need the CD to install the wireless router.

Assuming you have a dsl or Cable Internet connection established already, lets get you setup.

Plug the cable provided with the router into the cable/dsl modem.

You will need additional cable, for now, to plug your laptop into the router. Please do so now.

Your router will automatically assign an IP address to your laptop. It sould be 192.168.1.100

Your router will automatically assign an Gateway address to your laptop. It sould be 192.168.1.1

Your IP address is your physical address to therouter, Hense to the cable, Hense to the Web. Hense.

The Gateway IP is the actual IP used as the Gateway to the cable/DSL modem, hence, this is your actual connectivity. OK, let's get serious. The cable modem gets its IP information from you cable/DSL provider. This information is then collected by the router and the router assigns a local address thus allowing you to connect more than one device, (i.e. computer, printer, camera) and gain Internet access from that router. Its kind of like spoofing or fooling the system into thinking each device has its own address from the cable/DSL provder and allowing it to have a connection to the Web. I explain this as I feel understading how the router actually functions weill enable you to better utilize thenetwork and also protect your computer and devices from outside attacks.
An example:

The cable/DSL provider will provide the following:
IP: 72.60.55.10
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 72.60.55.1

Your Linksys Router takes this information, and makes it the base IP for its setup. It then allows you to assign a local address block for your network devices, called "Private" IP's. These are IP addresses that cannot or should not be found on the Internet.
An Example:

IP: 192.168.1.100
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.1

In the above example the Gateway address of 192.168.1.1 is the physical address of the router. To verify this information Go to Start, Control Panel, Network, Locate your Local Area Connection. This is always the wired network card in your laptop. You should also see one for your wireless network card. We will not yet be working with this device, but remember where it is as we will be working with it soon. Right-click on the Local area connection and go to Status and left-click. On the tabs at the top of this window, click on the support tab. You should now ba looking at the addresses I talked about earlier. And if all is well, you quite possibly could be able to open your browser, Internet Explorer or Mozilla or Safari and access the Internet. Having said that let's configure the router.

I am going to take a short break and hope you understand all I have spoke of. I await you response and any questions you may have.

My name is Todd and I am here to help you. We will get you up and running in no time.

Gateway router and MAC


You should go through steps 1 and 2 in the manual to collect important ISP information. Once you have collected all the required information simply plug your cable or DSL modem into the wan port on the Gateway Router and plug your Macintosh into any one of the numbered ports. Plug the Gateway Router into a power source. Your Ethernet LAN adapter should be set to get a DHCP address. Reboot your Mac and it should get an IP address in the range of 192.168.2.x. Now open a web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator) and type in the address bar 192.168.2.1. Skip step #3 in the manual as it only applies to Windows computers. Now continue with step #4.

How do I connect my cable/DSL line to this device?


The 3Com® OfficeConnect® Cable/DSL Gateway does not have an internal cable or DSL modem. The gateway router is designed to connect to the Ethernet output from your cable or DSL modem. An Ethernet cable is supplied with the product for this purpose.
