PostPosted: Tue Feb 14, 2006 7:45 am    Post subject: Unable to Connect with new WRTP54G and iMac G5 Reply with quote Back to top

Once we plug everything in per Vonage's instructions, we lost our internet connection. Help!

Our apartment building is wireless so all we do is plug the iMac into the wall and we have an internet connection. I tried to install the Set-Up Wizard that came with the Router but it doesn't seem to work on our Mac.

Here is the equipment we are using:
1. Linksys WRTP54G Wireless-G Broadband Router
2. Westell WireSpeed DSL Modem (do we even need a modem?)
3. Panasonic VE-SV03-S Cordless Phone
4. Apple iMac G5 Computer

Per Vonage's Instructions, here is how we've configured this equipment:

1. WRTP54G is connected to Westell DSL Modem using Blue Cable. Blue Cable is plugged into WRTP54G's Blue port labled "Internet."

2. WRTP54G is connected to iMac using Yellow Cable. (Once the yellow cable is connected to the iMac we lose our internet connection). Yellow Cable is Plugged into WRTP54G's Yellow Port labled "Ethernet 1".

3. Telephone is Plugged into WRTP54G's Green port labled "Phone 1."

Please Help. Thanks Very much.

what do you mean plug the imac into the wall? the power cord?
if you have a wireless connection you have no control over, you'll have to get a wireless bridge to plug the wrtp into.
if you mean you plug an ethernet cable into the wall, then you plug the blue wrtp wire into the wall and into the blue port.
if you don't need a modem why do you have one? your post is pretty vague, need more details on your setup.

Sounds like you have everything wired up properly, but if your MAC was connected to the DSL modem before, did you have do to anything special to set it up (enter a DSL password into the MAC, for example)?

The MAC needs to be set up to properly access the WRTP54G, which basically means setting it to automatically obtain an IP address from the WRTP54G and not to use any sort of login service like PPPoE, etc. I don't have any specific instructions because I don't own any MAC machines, sorry. If you currently have PPPoE set up, WRITE DOWN any settings, then set it to obtain an address without authentication. Once you've got this set up:

1. Power down the MAC and the WRTP54G. Disconnect the WAN/Internet cable on the WRTP54G.
2. Power up the WRTP54G and let the lights settle for a minute.
3. Hook your MAC to one of the LAN ports on the WRTP54G and power it up.
4. Check to make sure the LAN light lights up on the WRTP54G.
5. Go to on the MAC and log into the WRTP54G.
6. IF your MAC was set up for PPPoE, change the connection type to PPPoE on the WRTP54G and enter your PPPoE settings.
7. Power up the DSL modem and wait a minute for it to start up.
8. Connect the DSL modem to the WRTP54G WAN/Internet port.

Comcast Cable (3m down / 256k up) -> Linksys BEFCMU10 v2 (DOCSIS 1.0) -> WRT54G v4 ("Tomato" firmware) -> the rest of my network including a WRTP54G (Firmware: 5.01.04)

I think it would help if you described how everything was hooked together before you introduced the new router (and the internet was working on the Mac).
