Wireless internet DSL
« on: November 18, 2006, 10:38:12 AM »
Hello, I just recently switched from Cable to DSL, and now, my router is not working.  I am using a Wireless-G Broadband Router from Linksys.  I don't know why it isn't working, but i suspect that it has something to do with switching to DSL because it always worked with the cable modem.  Help would be appreciated, thanks in advance =D.

Did you change your Internet Service Provider? Or just the package?

oh, and by the way, my computer has no problem connecting to the actual router, just not the internet through it. Also, it connects directly to the modem and can connect to the internet without a problem.

Its probably something you have to change in the router settings. You do this by typing 192.168.1.1 into your internet browser and typing in your admin pass. I believe Its a router setting because its probably the way the router is supposed to get the internet. By this I mean you can choose between PPPOE, DHCP, and a couple of other ones but you choose the one your ISP uses.


This is just my idea, because I have the same problem now and again when my router decides on its own to reset itself so you have to reset the router to get internet through what ever way.

PS: Whos is your ISP now?

    This sounds like your problem. Router not properly configured.
