Ok, i recently bought a 4 port Lynksis Switch Router for my dsl connection. The model number is NR041, and i am having problems connecting to the internet when i have my modem hooked up to the switch router. I popped in the disk and followed the instructions and then at the end it says "congratulations, you have set up your switch router. We will now test your internet connection" so it closes that window and tries to access the internet. but nothing happens. This is how i have it set up.

Nice picture. With my service provider, and my router, I have to manually type in my username and password into the router and define the connection type.
To do this, I put the router address into my browser, log into the router, and configure it with my ISP setting. Did you do this? If so, can you double check your settings within your router?

It would be in your manual along with the default password.

I also have a Linksys router. My address is 192.168.1.1. There is no default username, and the default password was admin. This might be the standard for all Linksys equipment.

If you typed in Ipconfig from your command prompt, it will tell you what the default gateway address is.

Part of your image got blanked out.

Verify the the switch/router is OK.
Take the DSL modem out of the picture(disconnect the ethernet cable from the WAN port) With the connection from your computer to the switch/router, try another LAN port? Is there a light indicating that you are connected? Can you ping the switch/router now, or can you now connect to the switch/router with your browser?

With the steps above, make sure that you poweroff the switch/router after your changes.... Turn it back on... Wait a few seconds before trying to get you computer to connect to it again.

Once you get the switch/router working and you can see it, connect your DSL modem back up again.


Have looked at their support page?

Also, check out their Quick Install guide on the same page.

Let us know.

You have to have the modem connected to the WAN port, not to one of the switch ports. Have you checked this?

Have a look at Linksys Easy Answers. You need to configure your Router for PPPoE to use DSL, if thats what your using.

On this page and the following pages there are some ISP specific settings that you can check.
