I have just bought a new router (as the old one was faulty) and I can't get this one to pick up ASL or INTERNET.
I have a Linksys WUSB54GS Wireless Adaptor click here Adaptor and a Linksys WAG54GS Router with Built in Modem click here Router
No, i'm not using the old modem. I have a microfilter pluged into the phone line, with a phone and an extension cable coming from that.
Then on the end of the extension cable I have another filter with another phone and then the jack going into the modem, I also have a larger jack plugged into the modem going into the back of the PC plug with a network picture above it. And the modem also has the power cable in the back of it, so I cant work out why it keeps switching itself off. Am I missing a cable out? because each time it switches itself off it says a network cable is unplugged.
If anyone could troubleshoot this with me I would be very grateful. Thanks, Si
Too many filters in the line , if you have one on the main socket then another on the extension then that is one too many , the extension is being filtered twice . Try removing everything except the WAG54GS no micro filter at the main socket , no phones connected and a filter at the end of the extension , connect the modem cable to the filter , plug the modem/router into the mains and switch on , wait for all the lights on the modem/router to stop flashing and stay steady , attach the cat5 (Ethernet ) cable to the router and the PC and turn on the PC . Do not use the USB adapter as you are already connected via Ethernet . Do you get all the lights steady , when the PC is booted can you now access the Internet , have you set up the router properly , via it's IP address in Explorer ? Try these to be getting on with .
