Hi everyone, I have this problem, and I need some help, let me explain:
I have a Wireless ADSL Modem + Router in one, and I'm trying to connect to the internet throught it. My main reasons are so there are no wires dangling down the stairs, so everything is wireless, so my wireless box (modem + router) is downstairs and my usb adaptor is upstairs plugged into my computer.
For your information my specs are:
Windows XP Pro
Pentium 4 2.4ghz
512mb ddr ram
My wireless hardware is:
Mentor Wireless ADSL modem router + 4 port router (it is wires as well as wireless)
Mentor wireless usb adaptor
I've connected everything and it detects the wireless modem router and I have the little "connected" icon in my system tray.
So the problem is I cannot connect to the internet, I've read the manual but i dont understand it.
My Isp is Tiscali UK (www.tiscali.co.uk
) and i'm on 512kbps broadband. I connect to the internet using a username and password and in the dial up number the writing is "adsl" instead of a number.
Now how can I configure my router modem to connect to the internet, i've tried diagnostics and it says ppp failed everything is connected, i know i have to set it up for my isp, but im not sure what to select ppp0e or something like that, can someone please help me figure out how I can get this modem adsl router to connect to my isp ?
In the 1 page manual it says configure using http://10.0.0.2
use admin and the "password". I've done that but i still don't know what to do after that.
Can someone please help me set this up, any help appreciated.
Also, once I have everything working (the internet) how can I go about securing both the adaptor and the modem router to make it secure so no one can hijack it or something like that?
