    Hello tempers,

    I bought a new wi-fi router from linksys but I can't set it up.
    I've plugged everything like it is supposed to be but I don't get any connection, neither ethernet nor wifi. My laptop is getting the signal but no connection. I using a motorola surboard with a realtek router my ISP installed.
    I think that the modem is making troubles with the wireless router I bought but I got no idea how to configure it.

    If you have DSL and a separate modem, you should look for an option on your modem called 'bridged mode'. Select that, then plug your modem into the wan port of your linksys router.

    Depending on your isp and setup you may have to put your username and password into the linksys. Hope this helps.

    Otherwise, a manual should come with it, and theres a link you put in the webbrowser that takes you into your routers settings, and you may need to alter stuff in there!

    Ok I got no manual from the router and I got no idea how to set the modem into the bridge mode. My modem is the motorola modem SB 5102.

    In windows open up a command prompt and type ipconfig, while you have just the motorola modem connected. A bunch of text will come up. Look for something called 'default gateway'. It should have an ip address there for the default gateway. An example would be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.254

    Whatever ip address it has type it into a web browser. Hopefully that should get you into at least the modem config page. I'm not familiar with the layout of the SB5102 config page, so you may have to do a bit of digging to find the bridge mode option. Try looking to see if there is an 'advance tab' and a 'PPP Location' tab.
