Customer Question

I have a Motorola nvg510 dsl modem and wireless router that we just received with At&t dsl internet. The wireless connections from this router are SLOW, compared to the speed for which we are paying. I have a linksys wrt54gs that I'm hoping to connect to the nvg510 through an ethernet cord so I can use its faster wireless connections. When I try connecting them (out the Motorola through an ethernet plug, into the Linksys) and connect to the Linksys, I no longer get internet, although I can reconnect to the Motorola and get internet just fine.

So, is there something I'm missing? Is this something I'm able to accomplish?

Hi Max and thanks for choosing Just Answer. My name is Erik and I will be happy to assist you.

We probably need to change the IP addressing in use on the Linksys. Can you do the following for me to confirm this?

  1. Hold down the Windows key on your keyboard and press R to bring up the Run window.
  2. Type cmd and click OK.
  3. Type ipconfig /all and hit the Enter key.
  4. Right click anywhere on the data and choose Select All.
  5. Hit the Enter key to copy all of the data.
  6. Paste the data into your reply to me. If you are having trouble pasting, please just let me know what is listed for the IP address and the Default Gateway.
