Linksys Confused

  Legslip 08:56 04 Dec 2007

My friend has a Linksys WAG54GS Wireless Router and they cannot connect to the internet. What confuses me is that the router has an ADSL lamp that lights to say all OK, but also has an Internet lamp that is red instead of green. I thought that if you had an ADSL connection then that meant that all was OK to the ISP and thereafter you should get on the net. I am CONFUSED. Can someone kindly explain and also praps tell me what the problem may be?

how is the router connected to pc?

Both directly to a desktop & wirelessly to a laptop. It's just that the ruddy internet lamp should be green but it is red.

Thanks Johnny. Lots of differing opinions here and very interesting. I might finf the solution here but I would still like to know why an ADSL lamp AND an Internet lamp and why I cannot connect to the internet?

Only guessing here but perhaps the ADSL lamp is to show that the line is ADSL enabled. The internet lamp should light when your friend has a connection to the ISP. Have you run through the set up and keyed in your login details/ passwords etc?

Check your ISP set up if your ADSL LED is green then the problem is as a rule incorrect ADSL user name which is not the same as your ISP login.

I reckon it IS something to do with login details/ passwords etc. I'll re-enter and see the outcome.
