Hook Up A Motorola 2210 Modem And Linksys WRT120N Router Without Bridging?
Sep 28, 2011
I'm not that great at networking, I'm pretty much a novice but I'm trying to connect a modem and router to my computer but get around bridging the modem if possible. You see, I am working with AT&T and their dsl modem access page only works for me if the modem is unbridged. If I bridge the modem, I cannot get on the page again to unbridge it while I am trying to hook up my router. When I need them to unbridge the modem, I have to stay on hold for hours. One guy even told me that he did unbridge the modem, but since my internet persisted not to work, he told me my ethernet card went bad of a sudden on my computer. I knew this was incorrect so after a few more hours on hold, I had a lady debate with me that she was not unbridging my modem since it was my ethernet card that was bad and not the bridging. Finally, laughing to herself, she unbridged the modem for me and it worked
Here is what I have: My modem is a Motorola 2210 Style: MSTATEA My router is a Linksys WRT120N
As of right now, I just have a LAN with my modem plugged in through an ethernet cord to my PC. Is there a way of me hooking up my Linksys router to my modem and PC without bridging the modem? If so, where can I find out instructions for this?
My son tried to "speed up" our connection by unplugging modem&router. now can't get both talking to each other. Tried numerous steps! Bought Router 8/11/11, so NO Support from Cisco(only 90 days-POOR!). Website useless. Modem works fine with PC wired in.
I've been trying to port forward my modem and router for Xbox 360 live. Only problem is, I know absolutely nothing about networking or configuring modem / router settings.Anyhow, I was told to put my modem into Bridged Ethernet mode. I tried, then I couldn't even connect to the internet anymore.my router model is a Belkin F5D7234-4 V5. My modem is a Motorola 2210-02-1006.
I had to made some hardware changes. All the computers are running windows XP. I changed out to a Motorola 2210 modem, d-link dir-825 router and DGS-1008G switch.Everything was fine until I made this change. I now have internet, but it is slow.
I justed purchased a Linksys E3200 router to replace my old router that gave up the ghost. I have it paired with a Motorola 2210-02 DSL modem. The software that came with the router has created two networks but is unable to connect to the internet. I have tried on both my PC and MacBook Pro and niether work. I have the modem connected directly to my Mac and can get to the internet, so I know the modem is working correctly.
I cannot figure out how to connect my Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless Hotspot router to my Motorola 2210 Wired Modem. I am posting while connected directly to the 2210 vial Ethernet cable. When I connect the cables between the linksys and the moto the light on the front says it sees the internet; however, I cannot ping anything except myself and it. I cannot figure out how to get either to recognize the other. My ISP is AT&T DSL. My modem is using PPPoE with both a user name and network password to access the internet
Hardware: Modem-Motorola SBV5222 Router-Linksys E2000(Cisco brand name? I didn't buy the router) I use a PC with windows xp with sp 2 and 3 installed.Problem: I can use the internet just fine when I am connected to the router, my pc is connected directly to the router via cat 5 but when I directly connect to the modem I get limited to no connectivity. I'm not using a proxy server and before the router was set up(I live with roommates who set up the wireless network.) I could connect to the modem just fine. I can't repair the connection since it seems to be unable to renew the ip address. I've also tried to manually configure my ip address though I'm sure it wasn't the issue.I've racked my brain to think of a simple solution and it doesn't seem one is apparent and I'm almost sure it's something to do with xp and I'm not so great with software.
So I've had this problem before and normally I solve it by simply unplugging everything from my modem and router but ive tried that this time several times to no avail. The internet suddenly cut out one day and when I did my usual unplugging thing it came back unbearably slow.Right now I'm running off a motorola SB5100 Surboard modem and a linksys WRT54G2 router and its not my computer, everyone in the house is getting terrible speed.
I recently switched from dsl to cable. I have a e2000 router that I would still like to use. The modem I have is a Motorola Surfboard SB6121. It has no options that I can modify. The modem has a built in DHCP server. However, I can't modify it and I don't like the ip configuration it uses. For the time being I have the modem connected to a switch which is working fine. What I would like to know is how to configure the e2000 to use the modems connection. I used PPPoE for DSL and had login information.
My problem is I bought a 3.75G Modem (E353 USB Modem) from Optus the other day, and I have an old D-Link (DI-624) router I trying to hook it up to. And the thing is I am not sure to how? have the USB device plugged into a USB port and it works so far, I have an Ethernet cable going out of my 1 of 2 LAN ports my motherboard has in to the first LAN port on the router not the WAN port, as stated by other forums.This is as far as I've gone with this. I am going to buy a new router in the future , but I'd like to figure how to make it work first. Also are there any products I can buy to make it easer
Been trying for hours to open the ports on a motorola 2210-02-1022. I have a linksys wireless router. I think the default IP is 192.168.0.1 I put this in browser and get a user name and password window. What do I do from there. I have the port numbers from xbox.
My friend changed to TimeWarner cable a while ago. I bought her a netgear wireless switch to have wireless access. She has an old laptop as well with Vista on it, and was trying to connect that to the WiFi. Let her buy the Linksys. Didnt solve the problem and he turned off the wireless security to connect the Vista laptop. That was somewhere July 2011. Since than I have setup MAC filtering to at least have the WiFi not completely open to the public.
I recently changed my internet connection to DSL from Cable, so now I'm using PPPoE type of connection.
Right now my router is configured as Automatic DHCP with the modem doing the PPPoE connection. All is fine and well.
Since I own a PS3, and Nat Type 3 conection is really bad for my online gaming, I would like to bridge my modem and connect to the internet through my router. That way I can properly forward my ports, use QoS and effectively get a better connection on the PS3.
I was able to successfully bridge the modem, but the PPPoE config on the router isn't able to connect to the internet.
Modem and router have been reinitialized after the configurations were changed. I do have the username and passwords, and they were properly put on the router.
My mom wants to buy my dad a Kindle Fire for Christmas. Currently they have a desktop computer with a modem plugged into it and use Verizon dsl for their internet. The Kindle needs wi-fi and I don't want to disrupt the way their computer is set up now.Do I simply plug the router into the modem to get the wi-fi signal?
Five months ago we moved into a new apartment, and connected up our broadband; the ISP provides a Thomson Speedtouch modem (ST546 v6), which I understand from Tech Support is running software v4 (it was issued with V5, but rolled back to V4 for stability issues).We prefer a WiFi network, so purchased a Belkin N Wireless Modem Router (F5D8636-4 v2); I connected it up ditching the ISP issued modem, and all worked well for four months. Suddenly it refused to see the ADSL connection - orange light flashing.So after four nights of 'fault resolution' with Belkin, they decided to send me a replacement... which I finally received last night. It didn't work - same problem, flashing orange light.I have the correct user name and password for the ISP - checked it not once, not twice, but four times. The Thomson Speedtouch works, but doesn't provide a WiFi environment. Can I connect the Belkin modem router into the back of the Thomson and transmitt/carry the WiFi signal that way, and if so, how? I tried (the obvious to me) plug a ethernet cable from the Thomson modem into the Belkin, but nothing.. I'm guessing there are a few important steps I missed.
i have an ARRIS TM822 cable modem provided by comcast, in addition i have a linksys e3000 wireless router. what i am trying to accomplish is to bridge the cable modem over to the router. i messaged comcast about this issue and i have attempted what they told me to do, but im not getting any where.
I recently borrowed a friend's desktop and I am having issues with connecting with the router through an ethernet cable. I go to troubleshoot the problem and I get "Local Area Connection 2 doesn't have a valid IP configuration". Its nothing with the router because when I plug my laptop in with the same ethernet cable, I am able to connect perfectly.
I am trying to get my parents Kindle Fire to work. They recently purchased a Motorola Modem/Router which is hooked into the desktop and works fine. I want to get their new kindle to work and can not seem to figure it out. Their operating system is Vista which I can upgrade to Windows 7 if that would make it easier. When I click on setup the WiFi part of the installation wizard cd that came with the Motorola it says there is not a network adapter. I know what that is however I do not know why I would need it when the desktop is hooked directly into modem/router and I just need the WiFi for Kindle.
I have a 192.168.1.xxx network connected to Verizon FIOS via Actiontec MOCA / router. I also have a 192.168.15.xxx network connected to Comcast via Motorola VT2442 router (used for Vonage) and a Motorola SB6121 cable modem.
Each network has it's own gigabit switch connected to each router. The two networks are physically separated but switches and routers are physically side by side.
What is the best configuration to allow devices on 192.168.1.xxx network to communicate with devices on the 192.168.15.xxx network (share printers, NAS, etc), but still have each network served by it's respective ISP, and each device still get it's dhcp, dns, gateway, etc from each respective router?
I was able 2 find my Evo shift through the ps3, but couldnt get online. I used Astro file mngr to navigate to visionary and run apk, usb debug and temp root but I can't find visionary. Rooting successfully has been difficult so far. Hardwire...maybe plug phone line from modem 2 ps3!??
How do I hookup my blue ray player to my CLEAR internet modem? Themodem is hooked up to my pc. I have an ethernet cable that I can hook upto the blue ray but can,t hook up to the modem as it only has one ethernet
I have a laptop and an xbox I have done everything the vides on the internet have told me to do to hook up to xbox live I have hooked an ethernet cable to my laptop and to the xbox and did the whole network sharing thing but when I test the connection on the xbox it says there is a problem with the connection
We have telus firbe internet at this house. we have two connections each 25m-bit we've both got actiontech V1000H's. What im thinking is we hook each gateway up to a host pc (server) and go out from there to a switch (one line dedicated input, the other output as to not clog throughput), then from the switch out to two pc's in the house. phones xbox ect can use its own router(s) in theory would this work.
I have some network experience but not a lot so here is my problem.I have a zyxel q1000z from qwest that i want to bridge to my dir 655.I go through the settings to put their router/modem to bridge mode. This units default ip is the same as tslinkink, 192.168.0.1 so i change the d-link to 192.168.0.2. I then go into the D-link and enter my isp's pppoe settings and password. I reboot when i am done but can't connect to the internet.It shows connected but that's it. I want to use the d-link as the only router as the zyxel has very few settings and has slowed down my netflix.
