Router Problem, can't connect to Internet

Recommended Posts

good day guys! as usual, i got a problem thats been giving me headaches for days now!

a brief background on the problem. a few days ago, my modem and router stopped working after a heavy rain and some lightning. they wont power ON. after calling the tech support for my ISP, they changed the adapter and LAN cable and it made my modem power ON. thinking the router got the same problem, i bought a new adapter. it indeed worked.

but the more serious problem came when i tried accessing the net. i cant get to the internet although i can connect to my wireless router. i called up the ISP again and they were able to make my internet connection work on a stand alone with the modem. but not with the router (they said they wont be able to fix it since its not part of their service anymore). im not sure what the tech did, but i was able to connect to the internet. as i have observed though the LIGHT INDICATOR for the internet activity is not lighting up anymore although i am accessing the web.

i tried various tips and suggestions including reseting my router and using two laptops at a time to rule out problems with the PC. i still cant get it to work even with the manual set up or using the set up disk.

i got a LINKSYS WRT54G2 router.

if this may help ipconfig/all shows:

Have you tried resetting the Router? There is a little button that is recessed on the back of it. You will need a paper clip or pen or pencil to push it in.

Press the Reset Button for about 30 seconds with minimum power utilizing any pointed objects to make contact with the button.

Once the Reset Button is launched, the indicator lights in the front panel of the router will blink for about 3 to 5 times. This suggests that the configurations have been restored to their factorydefaults.

i can use my modem on a stand alone. i can access it when my laptop is directly connected to the modem.

is it possible that the problem lies in the communication between the modem and the router?

Have you changed the cable between the Modem and the Router? Could be bad.

got two LAN cables and they are both working when i use it on a stand alone with the modem. so i guess this couldnt be the culprit.

Router sounds like it bought the farm. RIP... :)

Noooooooo!!! :)

that's what i was so aftraid to hear.. i read somewhere that it could be the router and modem were on a same network coverage, and changing the LAN IP address may do the trick. i will try it out later when i get home. let u guys know if there's success or not.. :)

and please, lets not give up on this issue... no extra bucks yet for a new router! :P lol

i set it up like how the router-modem should be set up.

i just connected the router then to my laptop.

went to the web-based setup of my router, changed its IP address...and that's it! when i restarted the router, my icon on the taskbar showed i had internet access already. i just tried browsing to make sure that i can.

everything's good now! including the laptop that wont connect. now all my laptops and phones can connect to my wireless network and browse the net! :)

thanks for your time sir! :)
