Making connection from dsl modem to wireless router

Q: Making connection from dsl modem to wireless router

Just purchased a Linksys WRT54G2 router so my wife can surf indepently in the house. The problem is that in trying to connect with the installation software I cannot find connection instructions. This is because 2 years ago when my daughter was home with her laptop computer we connected a very similar Linksys router. When I insert the CD-ROM to get instructions the software says "it appears you already have a router connected." and since this is the only way to make the connections I have to try and find the proper connection method here. The dsl modem is a Westell 6100.

Hi, I currently connect to the internet through a wired ethernet port in the wall which connects to my university's network.

I want to make this wireless since I bought a new macbook and was wondering if this product would do it? http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006PYGWG6

I don't know much about it but I was concerned because the Router Mode says 'cable connection only' and I'm not sure the connection is cable (is it ADSL?). Will I need anything else like a modem?

Any advice?

OK, here's the situation. I have a Dell E1505 laptop with Windows Vista that I use as my main computer. I am connected to the internet with a 2wire2701HG-T router/modem. I just bought a Acer Aspire One D250 with Windows 7 Starter and connected it wirelessly to the network. Now, however, when the Dell is connected to the modem by ethernet, my preferred connection for security, speed, and battery issues, the internet connection on the Acer slows down to nothing and soon disconnects. After a bit, it reconnects, but is still very slow, only to disconnect again. However, when I connect the Dell by wireless, everything works normally. Is this a modem problem, or is it an issue with one of the computers? I must admit, my networking skills don't go beyond being able to set up a network name and password.

OK, I'm having some trouble with my DSL connection. Right now it's working, but it's starting to slow down again which means that I'm soon to be disconnected totally. My provider says that nothing is wrong on their end (which I've confirmed with 2 neighbors) so it must be on my end.

My connection starts to work REALLY slowly and then eventually just quits working altogether. My "status" light on my DSL modem/router is completely black, the other lights are green, however, the LAN light is blinking furiously (I don't really know if it's always been that way or not... )

Anyway, I called the "tech support" people at my provider, and they walked me though some steps that seemed to alleviate the problem for now, but I want it stopped permanently!

I put in the "IP address" (shown on the IPconfig command prompt) into firefox's address bar and it pulled up the Zoom information page and I went to the system status portion like I was told to do, but there was NO IP ADDRESS!! NONE!! So we cycled the modem--nothing. We powered down the computers--nothing. I unplugged the ethernet cable from one port and moved it to another--PRESTO!! The internet works again!

I'm not even sure why this worked the way it did, because my laptop is wirelessly connected....why did changing the port of my desktop do anything? Or was it just chance? And how do I keep this from happening? Ideas?? Suggestions?? Anyone??

RELEVANCY SCORE 75.2

I know this topic has been on here before, but I can't find one specific to mine. Here's what's going on:

I had my desktop & wireless router all hooked up (DSL internet) and running fine in one room. I moved the desktop to another room, so i disconnected everything to move it and hooked it back up in the new room (different phone jack).

When the wires are plugged in, it registers on the modem and on the router that I have the internet connection.

The Desktop picks up the LAC but I'm assuming its just picking up the router power and not the actual connection, because it will not let me connect to the internet.

The laptop connects to the network but not the internet.

I have the DSL line plugged into the modem; a network cable running from that to the 'internet' port on the router, and another ethernet cable running from an ethernet port on the router to the network port on the pc (sounds right, right?) lol.

Here's the catch...If I disconnect the router altogether, and connect the network cable directly from the modem to the pc or laptop, viola I can access the internet.

As you can probably tell, I've done lots of trial & error in this process. I'm thinking there's a setup or configuring thing I may be missing. I guess my mind is thinking that something like that shouldn't have to be done considering it's all hardware that was connected and installed and configured before. I'm not ... Read more

Hi all,
My dad recently brought a Belkin N+ wireless modem router for my parents home and asked me to set it up for him (as he is not very tech-savy). I set the router up with no problems whilst the rents were away in Malta on holiday and had no problems for about 4 days.

When they arrived back the internet was still fine until the next day when for no apparent reason the connection dropped and i had to power cycle it to make it work again. Now at least once a say the router will drop the connection and i have no idea why. I have tried every logical combination of settings and i cannot stop it from dropping the connection.

I've called up Belkin tech support but they were useless and told me to try everything I have already tried which is:

Static IP.
Fixed DNS.
Power cycling.
Firmware update.
Checking the log file.
Restoring defaults.
Turning the firewall off.
Adding MAC addresses of the relevant computers to the routers "safe" list.
Port forwarding ...

And the list goes on.

All i can think of now is to call BT and post my Router settings here (these are the most stable settings i've found so far).
Can someone please check out these settings and make sure i haven't done somethign incredibly stupid? I am a software engineering student and fairly confident of my abilities but it would be nice to have another opinion (not Belkins).

There THe belkin modem/gateway shouldnt limit your speed capabilities. You should be able to find the speed listed inside the modem's status page. To do this..
Click start>run>In run type CMD
In the black window type IPCONFIG and then enter. Note down your default gateway.
Open a browser window and enter the gateway's address into it. Click go
This should take you to your gateways graphical user interface.
Look for a status tab or see if it lists connection speeds on the general page.

Also you can test speeds at different sites. Google search broadband speed test and choose 1 of the millions of sites

Immediately after a power outage, my internet connection predictably drops after a set period of time or usage. It is either after about 30 min or 5-15 mins of watching Netflix. I have a modem hooked up to a wireless router and use the network on my iPhone, laptop and Roku. Since the problem, I have dropped to just having my laptop connected but this has not helped. The wireless network will disappear after the 5 - 20 mins, the light on the modem and router will show no internet (all other lights are normal). Internet connection will be reestablished if I either unplug both the modem and the router (not just one or the other) OR if I unplug the ethernet line from the modem to the router and plug it directly into my laptop (the internet light on the modem will go from "off" to "on"). Despite internet connection working from transferring from the router to the laptop if I connect it back to the router, the internet lights goes off again (resolves upon unplugging and plugging modem and router back in). The internet has not yet dropped when it is physically plugged into my laptop.

I have tried the following:
-Powercycling (temp fix until it crashes again)
-Plugging into a different outlet (I cannot connect it to a different phone line, only have 1 with DSL. Also, I do not have phone service or cable, just internet via DSL)

I finally realized that my modem has been causing problems for me for a long time. When trying to host stuff on my Xbxo 360 I would always get a strict NAT setting, but I realized it was because of my modem.

People told me I was double NAT'ing. No matter how much I tried with the DMZ+Port Fowarding on my Linksys WRT54G router, it wouldn't go through the modem because of that double NAT'ing.

On another forum it was suggested to me that I should try to make my linksys router into an access point for my modem. The trouble is, I'm nervous about trying any suggestions because they don't seem very specific.

Here is my current setup: DSL ->modem (Alltel/Windstream Siemens Speedstream 4200) ->into a Linksys WRT54G v4 then into 3 computers+1 Xbox 360.

One other person suggested that I should bridge the two connections, but I would just like to know which is more feasible for me to attempt today or tomorrow to get rid of this double NAT'ing. I am leaning more towards the side of using that Linksys as an access point, but other than that, I really have no clue where to go.

Finally, one person suggested just hooking up one computer directly to the modem so I could access my modem's configuration page (the person guessed it would be 192.168.254.254).

Thanks, if you need any more info, just ask!

Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I've trawled the net for ages but have found nothing. I believe I have a unique situation here and would love some help from some net savvy people. I have strong computing skills, but keep away from networks if possible. Hope someone here can help, would really appreciate it.

Here's my current setup:
- HP Pavillion Laptop with Windows 7
- Receiving internet from a USB connected wireless modem (Huawei model E160E)
It all works well, internet is fine, I'm happy.

Why I want to share this network connection:
I have a couple of iphones and a Nintendo Wii and we would like to connect them to the the laptops internet connection.

I DO understand "Connectify" is out there and have tried it but it just fails every time I've tried it, the devices that try to connect all just sit there trying to connect and time out.

A:Unique Q: USB Huawei Wireless Modem to feed house via Belkin Wireless N Modem Router

You enable Internet Connection Sharing on the internet connection and configure the Belkin as follows.

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers... Read more

Hi all,

Hoping someone can help me. I'm not the world's greatest computer girl but I know enough to be good at following directions

I have Comcast internet including a modem and router, both installed by the company around 6 months ago (details below). A few times recently, I will suddenly lose connectivity. My laptop wireless connection shows that I am connected but "No Internet Connection." Laptop browsers, as well as my consoles (so I know it's not just the PC) all show DNS errors.

Netgear wireless router

Of course it seems to happen on Friday afternoons when I get home from work, requiring a service visit on Sunday at the earliest, and resulting in potential service charges and (WORST) a whole weekend with no internet.

I've spoken to multiple Comcast reps and all they do is push a new signal to the box. When that doesn't work, it seems they just want to get me off the phone asap, and schedule a service call. Last time, the guy came to my house, and ended up solving it by unplugging everything. He said to try this and "pray." Well I've tried to no avail. I'm piggybacking on someone else's connection now and hoping they don't kick me off before my conference calls (and gaming <_<) this weekend.

I'll be eternally grateful if someone can help me. Let me know any info I can provide.

Hey Guys. what i need is some help turning my modem/router combo into just a modem so i can use a different wireless router.
My problems with my current combo are that for gaming (pc xbox and ps3 primarily) i have huge connection problems that would all probably be solved with some simple port forwarding. the problem with that, is that my ISP disabled port forwarding and DMZs on the model modem/router thing we have. Networking is not my strong suit so this hasn't gone so well for me in attempts prior to this.

We have an Ambit cable modem/wireless router combo. there is no model number on the modem itself however in the setup page it lists "Cable Modem : DOCSIS 1.0/1.1/2.0 Compliant" which is looking like it may be a model U10C019.

also. inb4 wrong login: user/user. ISP changed admin pass and will not give it to me. i already spoke to them about this garbage.

new router i want to use is a Linksys wireless router. i already know how to do all the major setup on those. its just this ambit one is trash.

thanks for any help you can give me.
 

A:modem/router combo to just modem for use with new wireless router

Not much, if anything, we can do. To configure the modem/router into bridge (modem only) mode you have to login. If you don't have the login/password the only thing to do is reset it to factory default settings.

Two potential problems with doing that ...

a. They may have disabled that function also.

b. You have to know the settings needed to connect. (Usually not a problem with cable service.)

Hope this isn't confusing but, my internet provider (my cable company) came in to set up a wireless modem/router when we upped our internet speed today. We have three desktop computers which are hard wired to our existing Linksys router which we have been using previously. Would it be in our best interest to turn off the wireless function of that router (it's hooked up to the new modem/wireless router so the hardwired computers can function since the new unit has no ports to plug in the desktop computers into). Our wireless devices are all 'connected' to the new modem/router (using its passphrase and SSID). Can the wireless capabilities of each interfere with each other? They are sitting right next to each other.
 

A:Solved: Internet provider wireless modem/router and my hard wired router

It's confusing to me, but can make two comments ...

a. If you are not using the wireless network of a router it's best to disable or turn off the wireless--saves electricity and should extend the life of the router.

b. Two wireless networks whose channel numbers are less than five from each other can interfere. In North America if possible use channels 1, 6 and 11 to guarantee non interference.

So here is my case:

SETUP:

Verizon's Westell 6100:
Modem/Router, provides 1 incoming address (provided by VZ) and provides 1 internal address (192.168.1.1).

Netgear Wireless Router WGT624 v4:
Wireless Router, accepts 192.168.1.1 and provides 10.0.0.X wired and wirelessly.

Problem:
Although Verizon's Router indicates that it is on Bridge mode, the damn thing isnt. I thought the main concept of bridging was to become practically invisible and automatically reroute all traffic to the next device, which is what I want.
I want to ultimately use the Netgear device to set all my rules and settings, instead, I have to do it on both.
For instance, Xbox Live is not working 100% properly. I can only play video games without being able to join specific games, or perform any in-game video/voice chat.

I have tried NATing the device. No luck.
I have also tried setting the Netgear device as a Wireless Base Station. Either way, I just would like to have my network ignore 1 device, and have the second one invisibly reroute all the access.

Is that possible? Could you please help?

Thanks to all!
 

A:Netgear Wireless Router and Westell Modem + Router = Routed Bridge failure

Well, since the "modem" is supplying a private IP address, it's obvious that it's not in bridge mode, that can only happen with a NAT layer, aka a router.

I have Qwest/CenturyLink DSL, and recently replaced the Actiontec M1000 modem which crapped out after 5 years of service. Replaced it with a Netgear DM111PSP v2 router/modem. Now I cannot get either of my two routers, the Linksys WRT54G or WRT160N V2 to broadcast wireless internet. I've spent the most time on the WRT160N. It will broadcast a wireless signal, but devices that attempt to connect to the internet time out while "obtaining IP address". BTW, I just happen to have two wireless routers on hand, I only need one to work.

I can get internet through the hard wire connection. I have the Netgear modem hooked up to the "internet" port of the WRT160N router, and the computer is connected to one of the four ethernet ports on the back of the router. I can access both router and modem setup pages using this setup. The Netgear modem is set up for DHCP server, PPPoA encapsulation, and gets its DNS address dynamically from the ISP. The WRT160N is also set up for automatic DHCP configuration. These are the settings given by running each set up wizard, and this has set me up for some DHCP conflicts.

I think that setting up a dual modem/router in transparent bridging mode (PPPoE) in theory turns off the DHCP, allowing the WRT160N to handle DHCP, but I have no luck even getting my hard-wired internet connection to work if I switch from PPPoA to PPPoE mode.

Just switched over to AT&T DSL from Road Runner Cable Modem.

While I had the cable modem, I used a Linksys WRT54G wireless router that had my PC and laptops connected to it.

Since I switched to AT&T DSL, I have been using AT&T's all-in-one device, the Westell DSL modem/wireless router/firewall.

I've noticed that uPnP doesn't work as well on the Westell as it did on the Linksys. I also had to change some settings to get my VPN to connect to my company's network.

Which is better? Should I put the Westell in bridged mode, and reconnect my Linksys? Or keep it the way I have it running it though the all-in-one device?

Thanks in advance.

I was looking at getting a wireless router (either a D-Link 615 or a Netgear Rangemax WNR1000) and I'm not exactly sure how to set it up. I have a BEC Technologies 7402 TM (NOT GTM) adsl wired modem/router that my telephone company gave me when I switched to DSL. There are 4 LAN ports on the back of the modem/router, a line port that my telephone cable is connected to, and a console port that I don't use. 2 of the LAN ports are being used. One is connected to my cable box, the other has an ethernet cord that runs halfway around my house, through a wall and into a wall jack that my desktop computer is connected to. I only want to use the wireless router to connect to my Wii and one laptop, I would like to keep my desktop connection wired. I had previously tried to connect to xbox live by connecting my xbox to one of the LAN ports but I could never get it to work, so now I just switch the ethernet cords between my xbox and computer in the wall jack whenever I want to use one or the other. Will I be able to connect a wireless router to one of the LAN ports and receive a signal or will I have to connect the wireless router to the wall jack that my desktop is hooked to, and run the connection through the router? I've never setup a wireless network before so I'm a little new to this subject.

I have a sagem 3304 wifi modem router provided by the telecoms company. it has a limited wifi range and in my experience of wifi it also has frequent dropouts/connection problems. we connect the desktop pc to it by ethernet and that's just fine.

we also were given (by a 3rd party) a belkin n1 wireless router (the model without modem) and would like to try it out to be the wifi router. The idea is to connect it by ethernet to the sagem and place it in a more central part of the property. I reckon about 15m of ethernet cable. we would disable the wifi on the sagem. had we been given the belkin model with internal modem, this would not be an issue and we would not need to use the sagem at all - that is not meant to sound ungrateful!!

Hi I have tried many resolutions and nothing. It all worked before with 2 cheap routers off of my cable modem (High Speed Cogeco Cable) but I couldn't password protect the routers because my wireless for laptop wouldn't log on at all?

1) So now I have a new rca cable modem (from provider) to a linksys ezx55w 5 port switch (not in the uplink port I assume since I have tried with and without from modem).

2) From switch to D-Link Di-524 (for wireless in yard and garage if I choose to bring laptop out here or around) to two computers in garage

3) From switch to 100+ foot of cat cable to house to an X-Micro also wireless for where laptop mainly stays) (cheap router but works great)


So all should be fine as I have researched and had replies to do it this way for ease of not conflicting hooking 2 routers together.

NOT SO...lol.

After reading I do not see if there is something in the settings I should do to each router still...since they (to me) are on seperate lines from the 5 port switch? Or maybe is this a cause from my provider not allowing me to use 2 seperate lines as I see it as well?

I suspect an IP address conflict was at fault here, though had no clue how to fix that.My actual problem is my Netcom router no longer works and I've had to purchase another. When I plug my router into the computer I get an error message saying there is another computer on this network with the IP address.... but I tried to change the IP address of the router, to no avail....I returned that router and got another and ended up with the same problem. Something tells me there's nothing wrong with the router or my computer, but perhaps it's my incompetence.That's where you come in...Thanks,Jennifer.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
 

A:Modem+router+switch+wireless router

Without the wifi connected, use IPCONFIG /ALL and look for the Gateway address - - that should be your 192.168.1.1[*]

Now connect any computer directly to a lan port on the new wifi router BUT leave the WAN port empty!
Again use the ipconfig and look at the Gateway address - - it MUST NOT BE 192.168.1.1 - - that would create a conflict.

While connected like this, change the router address (say 192.168.2.1), limit the DHCP range to something like 2-16, set a new admin password and save the configuration. You will need to login again and now setup the WiFi SSID and passphrase for your encryption. Disable Remote Management and do not allow port 8080. Save the configuration once more.

Now you can add the WiFi router, but let's talk about the wiring.

You now have

Code:

Modem=Router#1--Switch--devices(3)
|
+--- more stuff(2)

The TELINDUS 1132 ADSL is intended to be a modem+router so you will need to
connect a LAN slot on the TELINDUS 1132 to a LAN slot on a switch. (leave the DSL connection empty).


Code:

Modem=Router#1--Switch--devices(3)
| |
| +---- TELINDUS 1132 . . . WiFi Connections
+--- more stuff(2)

ALL your devices will now be controlled by the 192.168.1.1 router shown at the top[*].
The new wifi router on 192.168.2.1 will control the WiFi access, but never assign an IP address. This creates a single LAN subnet and any active device can be configured for all windows Print/File Sharing.

A:DSL modem router to Linksys wireless router

If the Linksys's WAN had any configuration other than "dynamic connection" to work with your previous service, you will need to change that.

If both routers are using the same LAN subnet (192.168.1.x?) you will need to

a. change one of them (e.g., to 192.168.3.x),
b. bridge the modem/router to make it work as a modem only, and then do whatever configuration is needed to connect to your DSL service, or
c. configure the Linksys as a switch and wireless access point.

While (a) is probably the quickest and easiest short term solution, either of the other two are preferable unless you have a need for cascaded routers. Solution (c) is ...

Can anyone help me?

Thanks, Assassin.

A:Wireless N Router + ADSL2 Modem/Router

Welcome to Seven Forums!

You can certainly do what you describe. It will come down to reconfiguring the two routers.

First, reconfigure the ADSL router (824RLW) to turn off the wireless. I looked at the manual and you can disable the WLAN.

Next, on the old "N" router, disable the DHCP server. This will prevent it from handing out addresses. Also give the NetGear router's LAN port a static IP address on the same subnet as the 824RLW. make it's outside the DHCP range though.

This last piece is important. Connect a cable from one of the four LAN ports on the 824RLW to one of the LAN ports on the old "N" router. NOT the WAN port! The routers have two sides, WAN (Internet) and LAN (Inside). The radio and the switch ports are on the same side (LAN). That's the side you want.

By doing this you bypass the Netgear's router function completely.

Configure the channel of the secondary router to be different from the primary router. Keep them at least four channels apart. Configure both of them with the same SSID and encryption key, and you'll have seamless networking (well close) between them. You can use this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector to find the clearest channels.

The secondary router should also be configured as follows to create a single network where all the connected devices are peers.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

the subject pretty much says it all. lately my router (Linksys WRT54G) has been causing the internet on all of my networked computers to time out.

i'm not sure exactly how to describe the problem, but i will explain the symptoms.

i can surf the internet fine but every so often my internet will freeze and the connection stops. (i use IE7)

although the IE7 connection freezes, i still stay connected through services such as AIM or MSN Messenger.

this happens with both the main desktop that the router is hooked up to and another laptop on the network.

i also have the same problem with the same router i have at my shore house.

please help.

Hi,

We are moving house soon and I need some advice. My PC is going to need to be placed away from the only phone socket (and therefore away from my wireless router), so I need to make my desktop wireless. I have a Netgear DG834G 54mps router. What do I need to buy for the PC? A USB adaptor?

I have been told that the Netgear WG111T adaptor doesn't work very well with non-Intel systems, and mine is an AMD Athlon. This put me off buying what I probably would have gone for to be honest.

Can anyone here give any advice as to what may be my best option?

The PC will be around 30-35ft away from the router, probably through one wall (it's open plan-ish, so difficult to explain).

Thank you!
 

A:Making Connection Wireless?

If you have an open PCI slot a PCI wireless adapter is often a better choice than USB.

Either way I suggest you try to get one with a removable antenna in case you need a better one.

OTOH the adapter you mentioned should work fine, but there are no guarantees. Certainly give it a try if you can return it for no or little cost.
