Help Needed sharing virginmedia broadband.

  dcag35 21:59 13 Sep 2007

Hi hope someone can help i have just switched to virginmedia broadband. i have got a TP-Link TL-WR541G Wireless Router, the problem iam having is connecting it up to the Modem/Pc.

The Modem provided by Virginmedia has got connections at the rear (1 power, 1 Ethranet and Coaxial which leads to the connection box.

on the rear of the router its got 4 Lans and 1 Wan connections, the guide i got with the router is no help whatsoever so i was wondering if anyone knew the setup. Thanks in advance

The ethernet connetion on the back of the modem goes to the WAN connection on the router the 4 Lan connections are for if you want to connect by wire as well or instead of wireless.

If you get ‘Address not found' errors when you go to a Web site, it is likely that your DNS servers are set up improperly.

You should contact your ISP to get DNS server addresses.

Do not set up wireless security as yet make sure that your network is working correct before you set it up
