What is the brand and model name of your ADSL router that you wish to use?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
150Mbps wireless N ADSL@+ modem router
tplink
model no : TD-W8951ND
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
its ADSL2+ modem router
default setting ip 192.168.1.1
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

This will require a bit of configuration on your part. You will need to first share the Internet connection from the wireless card to the Ethernet port, plug the computer into one of the LAN ports on the modem, disable the DHCP server on the ADSL modem, and change the LAN IP on the modem to something that fits in your subnet. Thank you for the update. May I start a remote screen sharing session with you so that I can better help you resolve this problem? When the remote begins, a chat window will appear that we can use to communicate with each other.

sorry i can not allow you to come to my pc for privacy reasons but you can explain me here , i will do exactly the same
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

I have remoted into computers several thousand times with no issues, but I understand your anxiety.

What do you know how to do already? Do you know how to log into the modem, change the LAN IP on the modem, and disable DHCP on the modem?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
let me tell you what i have done.
as i mentioned my router has no Ethernet WAN port, so in this case i have to share internet by using one the routers' LAN port.
so i connect pc to router LAN using ethernet cable. and then after the connection establish, i opened network and sharing center and go to wireless adapter properties then allow sharing from the local area connection(ethernet connection).
and i also disable dhcp and change the default gateway from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.0.11 (my friends router's default gateway is 192.168.0.1), then i restart my router , and then in my mobile phone it stuck on "obtaining ip address" but my mobile cant be connected to the router
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

I am not sure I understand what you have done. You changed the LAN IP address on the router to 192.168.0.11? That will not work. You need to change the router's LAN IP to the subnet of the Ethernet port.

- Hold down the two following keys at the same time: Windows key and the letter R
- In the box that comes up, type: cmd
- Click the Ok button.
- In the black window, type the following and press Enter: ipconfig
- Press Enter

Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

That means that the Internet Sharing is not enabled. Did you share from the Wireless adapter of from the Ethernet adapter.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i have disabled sharing , and reset all as before.
now tell me what i have to do now.
i have to turn ON the sharing in wireless adapter profile ?
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

I was under the assumption that it was still enabled. Yes, enable the sharing on the wifi adapter.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok, i selected the " Ethernet" into home networking connection: , and also check marked - allow other network users to control or disable the shared internet connection
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

No. You need to do that to the Wireless connection because you are 'sharing' the connection from the Wireless adapter. Disable sharing on the Ethernet port and enable it on the wireless adapter.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what is next ?
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

What is the IP now on the Ethernet card?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ethernet adapter Ethernet:IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.137.1
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0

Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. Change the LAN IP address on the modem to 192.168.137.250 with the subnet of 255.255.255.0

After that is saved, make sure to disable the DHCP server on the modem.

Make note of that IP Address. You will need it to make any changes to the modem.

After you do that, you can simply plug another computer into the modem and it will access the Internet.

I look forward to hearing your feedback concerning whether or not your problem is fixed.

I hope to hear back that all is working. If this is so, please do not forget to rate my help on the top of this page (choose the number of stars and click the Submit button). If it is not, please respond below.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i have done that, should i restart the router now ?
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

Yes. Restart the modem.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
time wasted , the problem remains same.
as i restart the router , none of my device connect wirelessly to router and ethernet connection also got dissconnected after restart of the router
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

It should work. Plug a computer into the modem and see which IP address it pullls.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
cable is pluged into the modem but it shows no connection
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

You have both the main computer and another computer plugged into the modem?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no no , i have one pc and all other mobiles
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
after i restart the modem , the LAN light from the modem is not lighting up
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

Okay. So you have the computer plugged into the modem with a cable, correct? And you are connected the mobile devices wirelessly to your modem?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
after restart the router , nothing connected to modem
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
can not connect the mobiles , also cant connect my pc to modem
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

You must have the computer plugged into the modem. That is how it works. The wireless connection is shared from the computer, to the modem via the Ethernet cable.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
this is the same problem i was facing before asking this question
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

What problem did you have before? Before, you didn't have it setup correctly at all. Now it is setup correctly. You must leave the PC connected to the MODEM.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
computer is plugged into the modem now, but its not detecting it (after i restart the modem)
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

What does it mean when you say it is not 'detecting' it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
when i plug the ethernet cable into modem, the LAN light is not lighting up
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
basically now , my pc is not connection with the modem
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

That is a new problem. Please, verify that the cable is plugged in securely both into the modem and the PC.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
can i use the another LAN ports? i used another (3rd number LAN port of the modem) and now its connected to pc , but my mobiles still can not connect to modem.

Just to be clear, you already changed the IP address of the modem to 192.168.137.250 and disabled the DHCP server on it, correct?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i have done that, it should be shown 192.168.137.250, in ipV4 address no ?
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

So when you go to http://192.168.137.250, does the modem's configuration page come up on the computer while you are plugged into it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
should i now reset the modem , and set it up again
???
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 1 year ago.

You have the computer plugged into the modem, you changed the IP address on the modem to 192.168.137.250, but you cannot connect to it now? It should be all set. Are you still against me remoting in and finishing this for you.

Your modem seems to be faulted. It kept losing connection while I was connected. We couldn't access it by ip even after resetting it.

Do you have another router you can use for this?
