Ok so I im completely ready to throw my router and pull all of my hair out!!!

I just got new internet service, all works great with the DSL modem when connected.

My trouble is this, when I disconnect and run my dsl through my router I get all the green lights that says its good, but I get NO internet. Something is blocking the connection. I get a signal from my router when I check with my wireless laptop, but am unable to connect it.

My warranty has run out on my router, so calling them is a waste of minutes.. calling my ISP only gets me directed back to the router company... HELP..

I need to network 2 pc's and one wireless laptop, I need help with my wireless linksys router.. I think it needs reconfigured.

ANy help would be awesome!!

Maybe if you post your router brand and model, we can point you to some resources.

If the router worked before, whats different?

I have a linksys 4 port router there is a very small button on the back where your mail cable goes in, make sure that button is pushed in and not out. That about all the help I can give with the limited info.

Ok, I just moved into a new place with 3 of my buddies. We are looking for a good network solution. We have 3 xboxes running wired connections. We have 1 pc running wired and 2 mac's running on a wireless connection. I am looking for the best router solution for this network build.

I was looking at the D-Link DGL- 4300 or 4500, but would really enjoy some feedback. Thanks in advance i really appreciate the help.

I use a Linksys 8 port switch (CISCO built, it also handles 10, 100, 1000) and hook directly to the router from the switch (most cases this connection will be a crossover cable), cost are less and through put on full duplex on each connection. The wireless router is also hooked directly through the switch to the router. The nice thing is it gives you layered security and the router your endpoint/firewalled. With the wireless and hardwire I have room for expansion and at present run 8 to 10 PC's between the 2 sources (wireless and wired). My phone also runs off this. You can also use LAN in this configuration as sharepoints for files, music, pics, etc. and can even use a network compatible external hard drive as a sharepoint or share printers and other devices. You can use the Linksys, DLink or many other web sites to show you specifics on how to setup a network in your home. Lots of ways to do it.


PS - and yes Macs will talk to PC's
