Linksys Wireless Network -> Webstar Cable modem

Discussion in 'Home Networking' started by Phil Sturgeon, Dec 20, 2004.

  1. Hey,

    I have tried everything, and I cannot get the router to connect to the
    modem. Them modem works fine, and so does the router, I just dont know
    enough about IP/Gateway/etc settings to do this.

    I am sure this has been answered, but can anybody tell me what settings
    I need to configure in to get a wireless router talking to a blueyonder
    cable modem?

    You need to unplug your PC from the cable modem then power-off the CM for a
    couple of minutes, after that power-on the CM and let it get a firm
    connection then plug in your router to the CM and power it on. When the
    router has gone through the startup tests and got a green light on the WAN
    connection plug in a wired PC and set-up the router.

    You could have asked this in one of the Blueyonder self help newsgroups or

    I'm hoping you may have given me the answer to a problem I have setting my
    network up.
    I had the router setup connected to cable modem then tried to connect laptop
    via wireless. Should I have connected laptop prior to doing the initial set
    up/configuration for the router?

    It's usually wise to do the router setup via a cabled connection first just
    in case there's any settings that you may need to enter for connecting to
    your ISP. There's shouldn't be any wireless settings that need changing but
    that may depend on your router manufacturer and the wireless crad you have
    - defaults /may/ be different for each of them.

    I'm not a wireless user (still in the stone age with a Netgear RT314) but
    if you're having problems with your NTL connection you could visit the
    forums at where some of the guys do use wireless.

  5. Cheers! That was one hell of a solution that I wouln't have thought of.
    I have been playing with IP addresses and settings for a very long time!

    Thanks again,
