You need a router which connects to ethernet..ADSL is connected by RJ45(Telephone connection) ... Many cable companies include a router in the Modem (Verizon) others need a router to do wireless which gets connected between the PC and the Modem . the DSL-2750U is well over $2000.00.. a normal wireless router is $50-$100... a regular router gets connected by ethernet to Modem and router ,, then has 4 other connectors .. ehternet to PC.. Also requires power supply. .. wireless has to be setup for the software.
To connect to the Internet you need a few extra things aswell as a network or wireless card and install the LAN or wireless driver. 1. You need to sign up with an Internet service provider. 2. Connect a LAN cable from your computer to the DSL or cable modem 3. You need a DSL or cable modem and connect and configure the modem to inaccordance with your Internet service provider's instructions. 4. Install Internet Explorer if it has not been done. 5. If everything has been done correctly, when you open Internet Explorer youcan access the Internet.If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then - To connect to yourwireless router, the router needs its wireless settings to be configuredwith the SSID, encryption key etc., also the wireless cards in all thelaptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings.Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Plug your computer/laptop directly into router. Can you get to the Internet then?
If you CANNOT get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router, reboot your router. If it doesn't have a power switch, unplug it. Leave it unplugged. Next, you need to figure out if you have another modem for DSL or Cable. If you do have another DSL or Cable modem, unplug that device to. After 5 minutes has elapsed for both devices being unpowered, plug in the DSL or Cable modem to the power source. Keep the router unplugged from power. After your DSL or Cable modem has powered up for 5 minutes, plug your router into the power source. Wait a few minutes. Reboot your computer/laptop. Try the wireless connection again.
If you CAN get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router. Reboot your computer. Try to connect again. If you cannot connect after rebooting, make sure you are connecting to YOUR OWN wireless access point and not someone else's.
Do you have other computers/laptops/wifi devices that CAN/CANNOT connect to your wireless / access the Internet?
the router has gone through the restore it will then begin the
reboot. When the reboot completes plug the power back into your modem.
addresses a common scenario where the router has been connected to the
Internet for an extended period and holds an IP address (DHCP lease) for a longer period of time than your Internet Service Provider (ISP) allows.
This is normal and does not indicate any issue with your Belkin router or ISP.
If the router is located where you cannot easily unplug it, you can
restart it using the router's web-based interface. If your DHCP lease
time seems to be extremely short, contact your ISP to see if there are other issues on the network.
In certain network scenarios, it may be helpful to turn off all the
equipment on your network, and then turn it all back on. Leaving some
devices unplugged for up to five minutes can also help. Try unplugging
the router, any switches, and any cable or DSL modems. Shut down
connected computers. Plug in the cable or DSL modem first.
Plug in the Belkin router second, and wait for the lights to cycle
through the startup routine. This prevents another device from taking
the DHCP lease. Lastly, start up your computer.
With the router powered on and running, se a toothpick or something like that to hold the reset button down for 20 seconds. Release the reset button and wait for the router to reboot. This usually takes a minute or two.
You may need to reboot your computer, although it's generally simpler to unplug the ethernet cable from the router (after the factory reset), wait 30 seconds, then plug the cable back in.
This is also known as 'renew dhcp lease'.
If that doesn't work, try powering down your cable modem/dsl adapter, power down the router, then power up the cable modem/dsl, wait for it to connect, then power up the router.
Some cable modems and dsl boxes 'lock on' to the first ethernet adapter they see, this will make the cable/dsl box reset the lock.
First of all check the DSL cable must be in WAN port of the linksys router. if it is done then do the following.
Actually DSL modem and Linksys router are conflicting with their IP class. Means DSL and Linksys routers are using the same IP class of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1.
You must change one's IP class because both are routers and if they having same class they cant communicate. Unplug the WAN cable of the linksys. open browser and put ip 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 any one which works for u in the address bar. Username and password hopefully be admin admin or just admin and password blank field. when you access the linksys router configuration page then come to LAN configuration. If there IP is 192.168.1.1 then change it to 192.168.0.1 and if it is 192.168.0.1 then change it to 192.168.1.1 Save configuration and reboot your laptop and plug dsl cable to linksys WAN port. Hope now this will work.
Unplug the router, restart computer. Wait 30 seconds and plug router in. Try to access it again. If it still doesn't work and it is DSL, check your phone line and listen for static. If there is no static, it should be working.
Whenever you connect a different device to the cable/DSL modem the modem itself must be reset. Dont even waste a phone call to linksys. Its useless.
If you are using DSL depending on your ISP you may have to enter your account info into the router's PPoE section
Cable users should have the router set to "Obtain IP aadress automatically"
Use the reset button on the back of the router and start from scratch. Unplug the cable/DSL modem power Hook up your router WAN/Internet to the Cable/DSL modem Ethernet/LAN jack Power on the Cable/DSL Modem first, wait about a minute, then power on the router.
assuming you are connecting wirelessly; you may have to check that the router is allocating ip addresses automatically to your pc's.
connect one of your pc's to the router via the RJ45 network cable that was supplied and not wirelessly and type 192.168.2.1 in your internet browser, this will take you into the routers setup menu.
Look for a menu refering to 'DHCP' and make sure that this is enabled, then look for the channel number that the router is using (normally 6 or 11) and make a note as if you are still experiencing signal loss, you can get back into the router and change to any channel between these numbers incase you are getting appliances interfering with the signal, save and exit from the router menu.
disconnect the cable then go to control panel, network connections and right click on the connection you are using whether it is wired or wireles and click on properties.
Look for the line TCP/IP and again click on the line and select properties, then make sure automatically obtain ip address is selected, ok and close window.
Restart the pc's and you should have a connection.
