Windows 7: Belkin N150 Router-Need Help in configuring!

Ahh... finally found a resource.

Just as I thought, your PPPoE connection is managed through your modem.

Setting up Wireless Router with Airtel modem Beetel 200BX

Try those settings if you want.

I've never seen a connection done that way. I've always connected PPPoE through the modem, that way no matter what you connect to it, it works. Either way, the above instructions should hopefully work, as they're written by a guy using the Air-Tel service. Apparently we're both right and both wrong.

It might work both ways, but it seems simpler to have the modem do the log in.

What I was trying to say was that you should not do that. During the intial setup phase you should leave as much of this on automatic as you can... The Router will asign DNS and IP addresses to the computers connected to it automatically.

In a manual setup...
1) The IP you set in your network setup is not arbitrary. The first three number have to match the first three of your default gateway... the 4th one you can set to what you like, just so long as you don't give the same number to more than one computer.

2) The default gateway should point to the router's IP address.

3) Since the router has built in DNS, your primary DNS server IP should be the same as the gateway IP and the second one should be blank. If you use the ISP's DNS server, you won't be able to look up other computers on your own LAN because your ISP can't see them through the router's firewall.

But...If you leave your computer's network adaptors on automatic at least until you get on the internet this will all be done for you by the router.


All you should have to set up to make first contact is the PPPOE for your ISP ....

All work (setup) is done in router.
Yep... Let the router to it's thing!

Most modems will reset to "Bridged" mode when you nail the reset button on the back and that's perfect for router access.


BTW... I apologize if I confused anyone with that earlier message. There was a bunch of stuff going on here at the same time and I got all turned around... my bad.

That tutorial behind your link does exactly what I've been trying to tell in my posts. It resets the router, puts it to use a bridged connection where all settings are done in the router. When you are using both modem and router, it's always the router that is configured. Not the modem.

I do not care who is right, as long as the OP gets correct information. I just know I have described a valid and working, best possible method to connect to the Internet using modem and router.

It worked! I followed this tutorial shared by notsograymatter and now I have the wireless network up and running! Thank you so much for all the help and replies you guys have given me! I guess there was a mistake on my part as I forgot to specify my modem details!


Marked the thread as Solved and corrected the title, in case any members stumble upon this problem in the future.
