TECH SUPPORT NEEDED: I want WLAN
ARE THERE ANY PEOPLE HERE WHO LIKE GIVING FREE TECH SUPPORT?
I have an internet provider. But they only game a cable that goes in my computer. And so, I only have Internet. But I want wireless internet too.
And I have a modem. Which is not configured.
If I plug the internet cable into slot LAN1 and another cable (that goes to my computer), I still only have internet.
How do I get the modem to give me wireless internet, too?
As of right not, the modem doesn't give me wireless internet, and it doesn't even say it receives internet. It only lets the internet, from a slot to another?
Yes, it is some kind of dial up, where I have to put a username and a password. the type of connection is "PPPoE".
I really don't know how to change from DLS to LAN1. This is what I'm asking.
The DSL port and the name "home gateway" leads me to believe the thing you have is a modem not a router and it will not work the way you want.
A router has a port labled "WAN" where it connects to the interbutts.
Your picture came off of ebay.
Your internet cannot work based on how you drew on the picture.
no because you are either too stupid to use google or just a not very good troll.
In the address bar of your browser, type:
when prompted, enter
find the page to set the ssid and make up a name and password. This will be what you see when looking foe wireless networks from your computer or phone.
Also set an admin name an password. This will be what you use to get back to the setup, even from wi-fi.
There's probably a page to turn on wi-fi and "broadcast ssid", turn it on too.
If you've never used wi-fi from a computer before, it might be easier to verify wi-fi working from an android phone.
here's the manual:
WAN and WLAN are different things.
WAN = Wide Area Network
WLAN = Wireless Local Area Network
You need a new router, the modem/router you are trying to use there is intended for a somewhat different use.
Just go down the store or amazon, and get yourself a well reviewed "wireless-capable router" that does NOT include the term "modem".
Ok dude, if i get this right you get a Cable form you Provider that goes directly into your PC and you have no Modem of any kind, right?
Basically you need the Router to just work as Router and not as Modem. Some can't do this, i'm not sure about yours. Basically what you need to do is connect the Cable to the DSL Port of the Router. Then you need to tell your router that it gets the Internet by Ethernet or LAN, that is usually somewhere under WAN-configuration in the router setup. Also you need to enable DHCP for Ethernet and WLAN.
But maybe your router only works with modem enabled, then you need to get a new one
>if i get this right you get a Cable form you Provider that goes directly into your PC and you have no Modem of any kind, right?
Correct. I have the cable that should go directly into the PC, and have this router, but no modem.
>Basically you need the Router to just work as Router and not as Modem. Some can't do this, i'm not sure about yours.
It can. This router is high quality and has wifi and everything.
>Basically what you need to do is connect the Cable to the DSL Port of the Router.
No. Since the internetcable can go into the PC, it'can clearly only go into a LAN port. What I need to do is reconfigure the router, so that it can receive internet through a LAN port, not DSL.
No, OP has cable and is trying to use an ADSL router as a cable router.
TBF, some ADSL routers can, as in any modern router every ethernet port is individually addressable*, however OP's can't and he can't accept this because it's "high-quality".
* internally there's still only one NIC, but the ports are multiplexed with a VLAN switch, so the router can group them as necessary, and address each group by using the appropriate VLAN on the NIC. Sky's routers, for instance, are normally ADSL, but will probe for an Ethernet fiber modem connected to the first LAN port, and if they find one, they'll turn it into a WAN port by reconfiguring the VLAN switch.
Too much hate on here for me to read so I'll answer with what I have and hope it hasn't been said and/or helps.
The four yellow ones are outs only, the grey ones, specifically the one marked DSL is the one you want, if your cable doesn't fit in there this router is not the one you need.
This is a DSL router, you need an ADSL router, you can get them for dirt cheap, but with everything, the less you spend the worse it'll prolly be.
Hope this helps.
Sorry in advance for shitposting, but...
I've been browsing /diy/ since it's inception and this is literally the worst thread I've ever seen.
