I have Just purchased an Asus DSL-N55U, But i cant seem to get it to get it to connect with the internet. Every time i try and do this it just comes up with a message saying Ethernet not connected. I have Called The ASUS helpline but they have not been very helpful, I have called my internet provider they say there is no problem with my connection because my old modem works fine when connect. Any suggestions??
Presumably you have an ADSL connection? And the phone jack is plugged in to the DSL jack on the DSL-N55U? And presumably you have an ethernet connection from a PC to the DSL-N55U that you're using to access it's web interface to configure?
My guess is that Ecollis put the CD that came with the modem/router in his disk drive and is trying to set it up that way. The software isn't detecting an ethernet connection which is stopping him getting anywhere. As above. http://192.168.1.1 is the best way to set up a modem. No complicated software (apart from your browser) involved.
I puchased one before christmas and after about a week I too had the same issue. Changed cables, jacks etc and nothing worked \My old modem worked no problems with all jacks and cables. Rang tech support and explained what was happening they had it replaced within a week
