I recommend Linksys, I've used Linksys for all my years of wireless.

Never had problems.

All 4 ports want to set up as Wireless; I want all 4 Ethernet


Connect the Ethernet cable directly to the Ethernet ports on the router. That should work. There may be a setting in the routers configuration to disable wireless if that's what you want.

I have two computers in the house which are linked by an ethernet cables, my wireless router only has one ethernet hole,so I would like to know what I need to buy? such as an adapter or something, so I can...


If there is only 1 ethernet port on your router it sounds like this is the port for your modem to connect to your router and that your router is only built for wireless. If you want to connect computers via ethernet cable you will need either a new router with a 4 port switch or a new wireless router with a 4 port switch. (you can get more than 4 ports if you have more that 4 computers).

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.

Want to connect aDI-604UP wired router to a DIR-615 wireless router to use as a printer port wirelessly


Hello Richard.

For this, you have two types of connection
1. LAN_LAN (ethernet to ethernet) -->wireless router is acting as a switch
2. LAN_WAN (ethernet to internet)-->wireless router is acting as a wireless router

in this case, you need the LAN_LAN connection

Physical connection:
plug an ethernet cable from the ethernet port on the wired router and connect the other end of that cabl to the ethernet port on the wireless router

Configuration:
log-on to the setup page of the wireless router, do this while the wired router is turned off.
-open your internet browser, type 192.168.0.1 on the address bar. Then type the username & password for the router ( default admin as the username, password : ).
Under the setup tab, click manual configuration. Then click network settings, change the router ip address to 192.168.0.5 & disable the DHCP server. save the settings. Just personalize the wireless network.

Hope this helps.

No ethernet port on older Dell desktop


Yes, all you need is a PCI ethernet card. You can pick them up rather cheap. Here is one. You basically plug it into an available PCI port on the inside of your computer. If XP doesn't automatically install it, just insert the included CD with the drivers on it and XP will do the rest. And remember to please give this answer a good rating of fixya. Thanks.

Hooking ethernet to broadband router and cable modem


Hi Sherry - The etherport port on your modem should be connected to the WAN port on your router. You then connect your pc to one of the 4 ethernet ports on the router. If this answers your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

ENET Port issue on BEFW11S4 Wireless Router


Hi!

Try these steps:

1. Make sure the wireless is disabled when you're doing that. It might cause a confusion between the wired and wireless connection.
2. Try to plug it at other ports (1-4)
3. Try another known working ethernet or CAT-5 cable.
4. Set the laptop's LAN card's speed to 10-hald duplex.

Try these and hope it will help you ;-)

Not enough ethernet ports


I have this router, you do not need two ports for your pc.
one port marked internet goes into your modem then the other ports marked 1-4 goes into your pc. it doesnt matter what one you plug it into. heres a little diagram


MODEM---------> LINKSYS ROUTER ------------> PC ethernet port.

(note: the cable from the modem to router and router to pc is a straight through cable, AKA Patch Cable. )
