My House Wi-Fi is now Connected via Linksys Wireless G Home Router

My House Wi-Fi is now Connected via Linksys Wireless G Home Router We have Globe Lines as our Internet Provider here in Cavite and I tried to make our house to have a wireless connection, at first I have a hard time connecting my newly purchased LinkSys Wireless-G Home Router to our existing modem from Globe { Siemens SE260 ADSL2 + modem } but thru Googling I would like to thank this instruction for teaching me how to connect it properly. I copied the instruction for ease to my readers.

1) Connect your laptop/PC to the linksys router via RJ45 cable.

2) Go to the router’s admin page via and change the default IP to (this is assuming that your Siemens modem’s gateway is which is usually the case…).

3) Make sure that the subnet mask is and then disable DHCP. Save the settings.

4) Connect the modem to the router via one of the LAN ports and not thru the WAN port(internet port). This is important. This makes the modem and the router bridged and they are now in 1 subnet.

5) Reboot everything from PC to router to modem. The wireless router should now be connected to the modem.

Instruction above will help a lot to those who will purchase the same Router mentioned above. I bought the router at 1950 if in case you are interested. I will post the unboxing pics later.

  • thanks for this! it works fast!

  • […] Linksys Wireless G Home Router is a lot different. In Linksys you need to reconfigure the DSL settings to let it work. I am now […]

  • Linksys is not very good in my opinion. It kept cutting out and I switched to Netgear and all of my problems stopped.

    • @ReTwurl Short URL, I’d have to disagree on this. Linksys has been working for me 24hrs a day, 7 days a week, every month and it never broke down. It’s quality of connection is very good too.

    • @ReTwurl Short URL,

      I have bee using Linksys here and abroad and I have not experienced those problem. What model do you have ?

  • I really recommend linksys routers. I’ve been using it since I was in the US up until now in the Philippines. I never turn off my router, it is on 24 hours a day, be it hot or cold and my router still works fine.

    • @Phaw,

      I think I agree with this based on my initial use of this wifi

    • @Phaw, how about signal obstruction due to walls? for example the router is set on the first floor, and the laptop is on the second floor, would the reception the same that of cable?

      thanks in advance

      • @jayl, when I was in the US, I used to use my laptop 25-50 meters away in another house and I still got connected.

        While in the Philippines, I can use my laptop on the 2nd floor when my router is at the ground floor.

      • @Phaw, @dexter – thanks for the replies. So linksys “G” it is.

        As of this time we are 3 connected to the net and no problem at all

  • Great walkthrough dexter. Again, welcome home.

    My problem is which “wireless router to buy?” is “G” enough to power up wireless connection inside our house? Im not really sure what to buy..
