The DSL modem connects to the yellow port on the back of the router. Then the computer or other devices that aren't wireless are plugged into the blue ports. If it doesn't work, it's possible that your service provider doesn't recognize/accept the router. If not, contact them by phone and ask them to allow the connection.

You can try turning off the router for 2 mins and try to access the user interface again . If turning off the device will not work then what you can do is connect the modem to the PC , download Firmware for your router , connect the router back to the computer ,access the user interface again and perform the upgrade .

The easiest way I can think of is to shrink the DHCP address pool.

To do that, at least on the model of Actiontec router I have, click on "Network (Home/Office)" the go to the "IP Address Distribution" section of the screen. "DHCP Server" should already be selected, and under that, you'll find "Start IP addresses" and "End IP addresses." Usually, the start will be and the end will be What I usually do is change the start address to That leaves over 50 addresses for normal wireless connections, and I'll general assign IP addresses from the rest of the range as follows: to routers, APs, etc. to printers to for other static devices. (I often find that Blu-Ray players, cable boxes, etc. behave better if they have a static address.)

But really, on home network, I doubt you'll have more than 15 devices that need static addresses, so you could set the DHCP start address as low as if you wanted to.

Go to newegg.com. Find the model you want and click on it. Under "specifications" tab, they list the mfr page for the exact model you are looking at. That page will get you what you need. Also, you are running a "G" router- prices on "N" routers are so low, it may pay to just upgrade to an "N" router.

It sounds like you are using a router, then using a router in series with it. The two networks will most likely not be seen between computers hooked on different routers, although you should be able to get to the Internet. If you need more ports, get a switch instead of a second router. To make the printer work with what you have, use the wireless printer on the same network (that is, from the same router.) If you need the second router for more area coverage, get an extender.

Default is : Username: user or leave blank
password: Admin or admin

As far as I know if you changed it and don't remember it you need to push and hold reset button to set back to factory defaults.
