My router was working when I unplugged it and took it to Florida for a month and worked all the time we were in Florida. Now I came home and plugged it in at home and it connects but won't allow access to the internet. Is there some settings that I need to change for it to work?
Thanks for your time.
I have the cable hooked directly up from my modem to my laptop and the internet works. I have tried resetting and it didn't work. Are there settings that I need to change or put in? Any other suggestions? Thanks
If you didn't make any changes in your router when you went to Florida don't make any changes now! Unless you know your way around a router leave it as it is. Check the DSL and Internet leds on your router, if thay are both on you should get a connection, if not then there's your problem!
Power cycle the router and check the leds again. If the DSL and/or internet leds dont light up call your ISP and ask for assistance.
Try a reset on your modem. That works for me when I have to change out routers. I hope it helps.
Thank you so much for all your help. I finally got my router to work---really not quite sure how I did it but I did it!! I think what I did was shut down my laptop and then did all the rebooting of the modem and router and then turned on the computer and it was hooked up to the internet!! Anyway thanks for your time.
That's the exact process of a power drain. Sometime, users do not do it correctly and it does not work..................Knowing a step is not everything, knowing it how to perform correctly is the answer............................
