Thread: Cannot get on the internet

  1. #1

    Cannot get on the internet

    Hi,
    First sorry if this is the wrong place to post.

    I have just built a new computer :-

    Windows XP pro
    Intel P4 3.4 ghz
    Asus P5AD2 Premium + Wireless
    4 X 512mb DDR2
    various hard drives,
    Plus Sound & Graphics cards

    I have not used XP pro before just win98.
    I have a UK ADSL 1500 Mbps conection which requires a dial up number to log on to the ISP / ADSL service.

    My old ADSL modem did not suport XP.
    As I want to go wireless later I bought a Linksys ADSL Gateway.
    It is pluged into my Ethernet conection on my motherboard.

    The problem I have is I cannot work out how to configure the conection to get on the net.

    Any help?
    Where do I start

    Many Thanks
    Rob

    You have to make sure you bough a model that is a combination modem and router and is supported by your ISP.

    Once you do that, it should be easy as 123

    You will need to know your connection type.

    If PPPoe you will need user name and password.

    Attach a pc to one of the ports on the router

    Attach the phone cable from the wall outlet to the router/modem.

    Power up the modem/router for a ful minute.

    Power up the PC

    Open your browser.

    You will get an error that you cant find the page.

    in the address bar type http://192.168.1.1

    the router login will appear

    leave the user name blank

    the password will be admin in lower case.

    You will need to adjust the settings based on the type of DSL connection you have, consult your ISP.

    For example, if you have PPPoE you will need your user name and password.
    Choose PPPoE from the pull down menu then enter the user name and password in the boxes that appear.

    Click on save settings and you should be good to go.

    Once you are on-line and all is working, go back into the router firmware and change the password.

    Still no luck

    Hi All.

    I still cannot get on the internet .

    My ISP was not very helpful at all.

    They gave me the following setting :-

    VPI : 1
    VCI :50
    Modulation : G.D.M.T.
    Captulation : PPPoA 2364 LLC

    Now I cannot find in the settings anything for the modulation.

    As it is a Local Telepyhone company here in the UK I double checked & they do tell me I can use this model.

    So where do I go from here could it be the mother board or some setting in XP pro.
    I could really do with help.

    Not just "123456" or what ever else people do around here.

    Thanks
    Rob

    We do not have PPPoA in the USA. I would contact Linksys tech support.

    They will have the answers you need.

    The Linksys manual for that router provides instructions on how to enable PPPoA.
