Modem and router won't create internet using WLAN

March 17, 2013 at 10:22:08
Specs: Windows 7, 2.81 Core2Duo with 6GB
Trouble connecting to the internet wireless with Motorola SB6120 and Linksys WRT120N. The modem works directly with LAN but as soon as I try to use the router, I can connect to the network but no internet is available.

Try resetting the router by unplugging it's power cable then plugging it back in.

I would check to make sure that the Linksys doesn't have a static IP set for the WAN port, doing a factory reset will change that, even if you're not sure. If there isn't a static IP set for the WAN port try a factory reset anyways. If that fails then the next thing to see is if the Linksys has an IP for DHCP on the WAN, if so that means the WAN port is working at the least.

Chances are you're just not configuring the Linksys router properly.

If the motorola device is a combo unit like I think it is (ie: combination modem/router) then you need to configure your linksys to be part of the same subnet and connect from the motorola to a LAN port on the Linksys. For more detailed info, click on my name above and read my how-to guide on adding a second router. You'll want the same subnet scenario where you interconnect "LAN port to LAN port"

Since your pc works when connecting to the modem and the router doesn't this usually indicates you need to clone your workstations mac address to the wan port of the router. there is usually a button on the wan setup page in the router to do this.
