Linksys WRT110 Wireless Router Hooked Up To Zoom Modem - Phone Lines Quit Working
May 4, 2011
I hooked up with a Linksys WRT110 wireless router to a Zoom modem and my DSL on my desktop and laptop are both working fine. My problem is my phone lines quit working. I plugged a phone into the box outside and I had a dial tone. When you try to call my house it just keeps ringing.
My linksys router all of a sudden stopped recognizing the 3 LAN lines that are hooked up to it, we are only able to access the internet via wireless. any suggestions on why the router would all of a sudden stop recognizing the LAN lines?
I have been using the E4200 router with few issues for the past 5 months. I have the latest firmware installed and have 1 pc running Windows 7, a sling box device and USB storage drive connected in the rear and 7 wireless devices.
Over the past week, others in my household have been complaining of not being able to connect wireless. The other day, the connection quit for both wireless and wired connections. I thought it had something to do with my ISP (Comcast), and after I made a direct connect from my modem to my PC, the problem is the E4200. After unsuccessfully troubleshooting, I unplugged the router for a few hours.
Trying a few hours later, I was able to reconnect all connections. However, that lasted for a day and has not been able to connect. I did a reset and when going through the setup process, it says that it cannot connect to the internet. The only time I have any lights or activity on the internet port is when the router is booting up and then it goes off. The rest of the ports are working properly. Likewise, the link light on my modem shows no activity when connected to the E4200. The only connection I can make is to the browser utility.
I am now using another wireless router until I can get this resolved.
I have had this wireless router a year or two and it had been working fine until late last night when it just quit. It will not connect to any wireless devices in the house. When my main PC is connected to the router, I cannot get on the internet at all. If I plug my PC directly into my DSL modem the internet works fine. I tried the reset button on the router and still nothing. When the router is connected I get this message:"Limited or no connectivity. You might not be able to access the internet or some network resources. This problem occured because the network did not assign a network address to the computer"It's very hard to troubleshoot the problem on the internet because if I have to connect the router to try something then I lose my internet connection.I hate when things quit working spontaneously. Absolutely nothing changed when this issue started. One minute it was working fine and the next it wasn't.
A couple days ago I noticed that my wireless internet connection on my iPhone would cut in and out, then stopped all together. I also had no connection on my mac which is wired to the WRT110. I bypassed the WRT110 and then I had a connection on my Mac meaning the WRT110 is the problem. I haven't changed or added anything lately that could've caused this....
Some background on a scale of 1-to-10 with 10 being Sheldon Cooper and 1 being a computer less grandparent, I'm about a 6. I'm home from school for the summer and trying to access my parent's DSL by adding my router as a middleman. I tried the basic hookup (wall->modem-->router-->computer) using a Motorola MSTATEA modem and a Cisco E1000 linksys router
Setup that was working. DCM-202 to AT&T Micro Cell to DIR-601 wi-fi.Now I can direct connect MacBookPro to DCM-202 and get internet. If I connect to DIR-601, either via ethernet or wi-fi, no internet. If I try another router, Apple Time Capsule, I get same result. If I just do an ethernet pass thru using the AT&T Micro Cell, still no internet. Basically, the DCM-202 will direct connect via ethernet to my laptop, but not pass thru an ethernet connection for any other devices.
My DIR-655 wireless router randomly quit working. It was plugged into my modem and working great, then it just stopped. I restarted my modem and router, but the "Ethernet" light on my modem does NOT shine when plugged into the router.
I'm sure that the modem is fine, as I have it connected to my PC right now. I also tried it with my friend's wireless router - works fine.
I believe this may be hardware-related. I have tried restoring the router to factory settings and then setting up everything again: No luck.
I haven't had this router for long! Just a little over two years I believe (or it may be just a little over one). I have another wireless router somewhere that's 6-7 years old and still works. If it is hardware related (as in the router just randomly broke), then rest assured I will not be purchasing another D-Link router in the future.
For home use, I have a Windows Vista PC which is hooked up to the Internet via a wireless EV/DO modem that plugs into a USB port. I just bought an iPad and for connectivity, I then bought a WRT120N wireless router. But I cannot attach the EV/DO modem to the WRT120N since the EV/DO only has a USB port. I plugged the PC into one of the 4 ports of the WRT120N and the iPad sees the router, but what I would like is that it also sees the internet when the PC is online via the EV/DO modem. Is there a way to configure this? I realize that the PC would always have to be switched on if I want to have the iPad online, but for the time being I am ok with that.
I was recently tasked at work to reinstall phone lines after a remodel. We have 2 phone lines with two phones and a credit card machine. I ran into a piece of equipment and I have no idea what it is so my research into the subject has been halted.
My wife's computer was working fine. Two nights ago, a Windows update was automatically installed. Now, it will not connect to the internet. The map shows it connected to the network. We have several other devices on our network both wired and wireless and all of them are working fine.
I was able to use system restore yesterday to roll back the update. It still did not work. However, I tried connecting to a neighbor's wireless. It said something about refreshing the adapter and then it connected to our network and was working fine. Unfortunately, when she shut down last night, the windows update was reapplied. I turned off automatic updates and tried using system restore. It did not work this time. I removed every update that was applied in the last 48 hours but I still cannot get the computer to connect to the internet. However, it does connect to the internet when I bring it up in Safe Mode.
Im planning to do a LAN for internet/file sharing and of course LAN game There are people that living far from each another like 1 mile away.... thats a problem.Cat5 Ethernet cables are not made for long distance connectivity ( 100 meters of length max, otherwise bad connection).So because i need a connectivity between pc's for long distance I can use Wireless, expensive, and because I prefer wired and I heard that there is a way to convert CAT5 cable into phone line, because phone lines can be used for long distance connectivity without problems.So I wonder if there is a way to do that LAN connectivity using phone lines.RJ45 to phone line, do they exist these adapters? if yes, will this work for me
I decided to get a faster modem since we are not streaming a lot more and started on the XBOX Live. I got a Zoom 5241 which seemed to have some good specs for what I need. I turned of my pc and unplugged my router when I connected the new modem. Before I connected the coax and ethernet, I held down the reset button, made all connections, waited 3 min., plugged in router...waited...powered up pc. Modem lights keeps cycling, DS flashes a while-then solid then US flashed-solid, then Online flashes-never solid and starts all over. Link light is continuously lit. I tried /renew, nothing.
I have had the Netgear 3300 Dual Band for three years. Everytime I wanted to access using my laptop, I had to choose between 2.4G and 5G connection. For about a month now, the 5G does not show up. It doesn't show up as a network to select no matter what device I use. I have reset the router and updated the firmware. Both connection lights are blinking. I recently purchased and IPhone 4 and still I do not have the option of selecting 5G.
It's been a pretty darn good router for about 8 months now, then today one of the wireless connected PC's started to go intermittent internet, and then dropped the connection.
At first I thought it was the PC, but after checking other connected items (wii, PS3, another pc, 2 ipods, and 2 printers) I discovered all the wireless connections were dropped, and no one could see the SSID. An hour unplugged fixes nothing. 2 wired ports are working fine though.
When it's uplugged and then plugged in, all the little lights come on, then go out, and then, only the 2 wired port lights come on, nothing else.
My internet connection drops every 10-30 minutes and reconnects. The modem seems to reset (every light except the power one). I have a Zoom model 5241 modem. Additionally, I cannot access my modem's status page [URL]. It's as if I'm trying to access a site that doesn't exist. Comcast sent a tech who replaced a splitter, but that didn't work.
My DIR 655 router quit working and so I called D link. She had me reset the ip to 192.168.5.x. So now my dap1522 is not connecting to the 655. I connected the dap1522 to my laptop via ether-net and typed in dink, and got nothing, then put in default ip for the 1522 and still nothing. I also tried ip scanner and it would not come up.
I recently installed Arkham City on my computer played it for a while, tried google chrome, gave me a corrupt profile error or something (internet still worked and was connected at the time) restarted my computer and now it's telling me there isn't an ethernet cable connected to my computer.
Here's what I tried so far:
-Uninstalling and reinstalling the driver
-Updating the driver
-Using the network troubleshooting for windows 7
-Doing a system restore before I installed the game (gave me an error saying could not complete restore)
-Currently scanning my computer in safe mode with networking (seeing if that might work, doesn't) with malewarebytes
-Unplugged and replugged the router and modem
-Checked the router on another computer to see if there's a connection (there is none)
-Checked the router to see if there is a light in the port connected to the ethernet, it's blinking at a very slow a steady pace, unlike the ones around it which are solid green lights
-Tried the ethernet cable on another computer, works fine.

We have a non-wireless network of Macs at work and occasionally have a PC laptop connected with an ethernet cable. Everything worked well until the owner of the PC got a new one, and tried to install drivers for our HP printer using the original HP install disk. Now none of the computers can connect with the printer. What happened? How can I correct this? The Macs all run OSX 10.5.8. The Windows operating system is, I believe, XP.
I have a Linksys WRT54GS, version 6 with Mac OS X (version 10.6.8) hooked up to a Scientific Atlantic cable modem, with RCN as the ISP.
Recently, RCN had some network issues, and so I had to power down and reset my modem. The modem is working fine now -- no problems at all when the Mac is connected direclty to the modem.
The router's network is OK in that I can connect the Mac wirelessly to the network, but I can't connect to the internet through the router (through neither the wireless or wired connection).
I have downloaded the latest firmware update for the router, following the Linksys site instructions.
I did call Linksys tech support on the advice of RCN, and they said that the router does appear to be working (power, WLAN, and Internet lights are on), but they would be charging me nearly the cost of a new router to fix the problem.
I have a Zoom adsl x6 model 5590 wireless router. I recently tried to update its firmware by following the instructions from the manufacturers site. Everything seemed to go correctly, but I am now unable to connect to the internet or my routers http address. My router now has a red power light along with a solid green light for the wlan and dsl.
I have a new Linksys E2100 that was working well with an old Verizon modem. Then recently that modem gave up the ghost and I was issued another one (Westel Model 6100G). I have no problems with internet connectivity when connecting directly from my harddrive to the Verizon modem. I am also not having trouble connecting to the Linksys routher as I am able to see my wireless connection with no problem. However, when I try to set up the connnection with the E2100 in the loop (yes, it's connected correctly) I no longer have internet access.I tried de-installing and re-installing the Linksys software (thinking maybe there was some new configuration that would be auto-detected with a new set-up), but this didn't work. I suspect that if the problem is with my Linksys router and not with my Verizon modem that there might be something that could be done to reconfigure something manually but I do not know enough about connections and wireless systems to trust myself not to mess something up.

At this point I'm assuming it's a Linksys issue since I know that my Verizon modem can connect me to the internet, so works properly. Is there some known incompatibility with this Linksys model and the Westell 6100G modem?
I am at my wits end.Comcast just changed my old RCA cable modem for an Arris Telephony modem.(I had Comcast phone service added)The tech that did the install said the wireless G network was all up and running. (My 3 other computers and printer) Well lo and behold the network does not work at all. I only get internet through my wired computer and cannot access my router through 192.168.1.1 anymore.I tried powering down the router and modem by holding the reset for 30 seconds and unplugging them.
The unit seems to be Ok, but it's not. Power light is solid blue, Internet light is flashing blue when connected to cable modem, when wireless is on wireless light flashes blue, when ethernet cable is connected the correct 1-4 blue light flashes.The unit issues IP addresses wirelessly with or without security, and on ethernet, but with no Internet access.I can log on to the router and have upgraded firmware to 1.0.07. Tried reset button a number of times, makes no difference.When logged in to the router and looking at the Status screen, it shows no IP address, no Subnet Mask, no Default Gateway, no DNS, thus I can't get on the Internet. Connection type is Auto Config - DCHP. It does show the correct domain name as other wireless routers show.
Tried everything I could find on the boards (hard reset for 30 seconds, cycling power). The power light's the only one that's coming on and I can't tell if it's on continuously or just blinking really fast.
No problem with direct connection to the modem via ethernet, but I can't see the WRT110 via ethernet or wireless. It just suddenly stopped working yesterday.
Im currently using a Zoom 3G Wireless-N Router with a MF112 Mobile Broadband Dongle on the 3 Network.[URL] ive been using this setup for over a year now and have had no issues. I have 3 appliances that are sharing the wireless internet connection.Iphone - Xbox360 and a Windows 7 Netbook Yesterday i found that i couldn't establish an internet connection, i had connection to the zoom 3g router but no internet access. To my great delight my iphone also refuses to right me internet access. A connection to the router is obtained but just no internet. My partners Xbox 360 though has no problem accessing Xbox Live i just dont get it. Also whilst a connection is established to the router over my Acer aspire one Nbook. my small Gmail/Gtalk icon in the system tray suggests that im online and available. and can interact with contacts. While this confuses me i fire up either Chrome or Fox and wait for my google.co.uk search homepage to appear in which it doesnt. if i load up a Bookmark like say Filehippo. it loads but the webpage is missing icons and its graphical interface.
I tried resetting the routers settings. rebooting my Iphone and Nbook.... Turning off the Xbox360 and then trying to see if i can obtain internet access. Nothing i try seems to solve this annoying issue. its driving me mad. i havent installed / updated or accidental removed anything that could have caused this. Ive had a situation in the past where a router connection is present but no internet access resulting in some sort of DNS issue i think. But when the iphone doesnt establish internet access but the XBOX 360 will. thats just a pain in the a$$.im suspecting that the router is at fault. there must be something that it isnt supplying the Nbook and Iphone with but is the 360. I dont know.
I am trying to update my WRT110 which has 1.0.04 firmware on it right now but when i try to update it toVer.1.0.05 all i get is this message.... i dont know what to do i never had a problem updating my older router's befor i had this one this is the first time im updating this one i tryed updating it on IE 8 RC1 & also Safari 4 but i get the same message . I've also tryed saving the firmware file in it's own folder still no luck try updating on my xp desktop & my laptop with vista with same message? is it a problem with linksys with the file on there website maybe?
The WRT110 is hooked up to Cable through Comcast and works fine with LAN connections. The problem comes in with more than one wireless laptop tries to connect. First, it was loaded with 1.0.4 firmware and my girlfriend's XP laptop would connect but drop the connection a lot. My Windows 7 laptop wouldn't connect at all. After trying everything someone recommended upgrading the firmware to 1.0.7. Well, now my Windows 7 laptop connects but the XP laptop will not. The DHCP won't assign it an IP, although it says it's connected.
