I recently just got Road Runner cable and i'm trying to connect through a wireless router. Its a Linksys BEFW11S4 ver.3. Here's the problem.....
When I hook up the ethernet cable into the WAN port, the cable modem’s “Enet” light stops blinking. But if I hook it up directly to my computer, it blinks and I can go online. I’ve tried calling my isp and linksys (THEY WANT ME TO PAY THE $30.00 JUST TO TALK TO THEM!:annoy:) The funny thing is, if I hook up the e-net cord to one of the 4 ports in the back of the router, the cable modem recognizes it. but it won’t recognize it if i hook it up to the WAN…wtf is that shit about.
My friend told me that my router is old and I need a new one, if this is so does anyone know a good router I can use? I’ve had this one for a while now and maybe I do need an upgrade.
I appreciate the time you took to read my problem and I hope someone knows how I can fix it.
