Connecting the Router and the Modem 1. Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your Internet Service Provider. 2. Shut down the computer, and unplug the power cables to both the router and the Broadband modem. 3. Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the computer and plug it into the Internet or WAN port of the router. 4. Take the Ethernet cable that came with the router (or any another available cable) and connect it to the computer. Then, take the other end of that same cable and connect it to Port 2 on the back of the router. 5. Plug in the Broadband modem's power cable and wait for all of its lights to stop blinking. 6. After the lights on the Broadband modem stop blinking, plug in the router's power cable. 7. Start up the computer. Obtaining the PC's MAC Address Windows 98SE/ME 1. Click on the Start menu, then click on the Run option. 2. When the ?Run? window opens, input winipcfg into the ?Open? field, then click on the OK button. 3. The ?IP Configuration? window should appear, select the Ethernet Adapter that the PC is using from the drop down list. 4. Make note of the ?Adapter Address? which is the MAC Address. Windows XP/2000 1. Click on the Start menu, then click on the Run option. 2. When the ?Run? window opens, input cmd into the ?Open? field, then click on the OK button. 3. When the ?MS DOS Prompt? appears, input ipconfig /all then click on the [Enter] key. 4. Make note of the ?Physical Address? of the Ethernet Adapter (normally ?Local Area Connection?). Accessing the Setup Page 1. Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape. 2. When the browser window opens, go to the Address bar and type in the router's IP Address and click on the Go button (192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of Linksys Routers). 3. A window will appear prompting for a ?User Name? and a ?Password?. Leave the ?User Name? field blank, and type in the router's password and click on the OK button to login (admin is the default password). 4. The router's web-based ?Setup? utility should then load. Cloning the MAC Address The steps for configuring the MAC Address Cloning feature of a Linksys router vary depending on the firmware version the router is currently using. From the router?s ?Setup? page, locate the Linksys logo in the upper left-hand corner of the page. Follow the instructions below depending on which logo matches your specific screen: If the logo matches the image above ("Linksys - A Division of Cisco Systems, Inc."), follow these steps. If not, skip to the next logo version. 1. From the ?Setup? page, click on the MAC Address Clone sub-tab. 2. In the ?MAC Clone? section, set the option to Enable. 3. Click on the Clone Your PC?s MAC button. Once this is done, the ?User Defined Entry? will show MAC Address of the Ethernet Adapter of the computer you are using. Verify this address with the ?Adapter Address? or ?Physical Address? observed in earlier steps. 4. Click on the Save Settings button. Then, click the Continue button if prompted. If the logo matches the image above ("Linksys"), follow these steps: 1. From the ?Setup? page, click on the Advanced tab. 2. When the ?Filters? page loads, click on the MAC Addr. Clone tab. 3. When the ?MAC Address Clone? page loads, enter the the ?Adapter Address? or ?Physical Address? that was observed in earlier steps. 4. Click on the Apply button. Then, click the Continue button if prompted. Power Cycling 1. Shut down the computer. 2. Unplug the router?s power cable. 3. Unplug the Broadband modem?s power cable. 4. Wait for 30 seconds. 5. Plug in the Broadband modem?s power cable and wait for its lights to stop blinking. 6. Plug in the router's power cable once the modem?s lights stop blinking. 7. Finally, start up the computer and test the Internet connection.

I purchased a D-Link Wireless N 150 Router, Dir 600L. I am unable to setup the same. Do I need a Modem also to setup this router or I can setup without a modem?


You can setup a wireless network without a modem. It will allow you to share printers, files ect. The modem is required for an internet connection only. The modem basically translates the Ethernet traffic in to a signal that can be carried over your respective service, DSL over a POTS line or broadband over a coax cable. The word modem stands for MOdularDEModular note the word MODEM in there.

I have a cable modem and setup a belkin N150 wireless router...says wirless router is connected but cable modem is not? therefore am not getting out to internet...can anyone help?


Unplug your cable modem for 30 minutes. Also turn off the router. After 30 minutes, plug in ONLY the cable modem. Wait about 2 minutes and then plug the router back in.

Belkin n wirelss router setup


To setup the router you will need to log in to your router's control panel. This certainly won't be as simple as on the installer disc, yet it is still do-able. You might also want to contact Belkin's free technical support hot line. They can help you set it up with the method I described above.

On which port of the D-link router did you plug the WRT160N router?

Do this setup.

Disconnect the WRT160N from D-link.

Connect a computer to port 1 of the WRT160N. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. you may need to type in the username and password for WRT160N. on the setup page Change the LAN IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1. save the settings.

Connect a cable from port 1,2,3 or 4 of the D-link router to the Internet port of the WRT160N. turn off everything then turn them on starting from cable modem>D-link >WRT160N then computer.

You should be able to access the internet.

Cable internet setup


No, you need to buy a wireless router and connect wireless router to cable modem. Non cable modems do not work on cabled wireless network.
If you buy cable router, buy either a router with no modem integrated or a modem/router for cable network, this last one may be best option, but it needs to be configured. Ask to retailer which models are ok with your broadband provider.
