Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

TP-LINK WR642G Problems with wireless connection.

I recently set up my TP-LINK router WR642G and it worked for a while but suddenly stopped working. Initially it was connecting through the LAN without needing a network connection to be set up to connect to my ISP. When it stopped working I created a network connection to my ISP and it started working, but I think over-ridden the modem or something because no wireless connections will work now. They can connect to the router, but no websites display.

I've tried resetting the router, factory reset, deleting the network connection, unplugging the router, unplugging the modem. Nothing is working. My Ethernet connection only works if I set up a new network connection. If I try to connect again through the LAN I get the same issues as with the wireless. A connection but no internet.

No firewalls, and I've used multiple browsers.

Any help is appreciated.

    hi there



    i have the same problem. TL-WR642G was working fine when i bought it and connect to my starhub cable modem.



    initially thought my previous router wasnt working, cos i always encounter problem with it. shows connected, but just simply cant get online. so i bought the 642.



    ended up actually both routers are ok. so i started using the 642. started well, but after just a month, problems came also. always shows connected to the wireless, but just cant get online. some DNS error thingy. connect direct from modem is ok, but once connect thru 642, nothing goes thru.



    also tried everything, on, off, re boot, restart pc, reset router.....nothing works.



    any help??

Sounds like you need to change the TP link router for a wireless Access Point or a range extender.
Who knows what goofing around BT does with their equipment.

How to block facebook in tplink router


Blocking domains on TP-LINK routers is fairly easy to do. Log onto the admin panel on http://192.168.0.1/ or http://192.168.1.1/ (default login name and password are both "admin"). Once you're in, look for an option under firewall settings. You should also be able to set the hours when the block is in effect.

I have set password for my TP-WR642G long time ago, but I want to change it. What can I do?


When you purchased your router, if It came with software then your going to have to use that. It should be as simple as opening the software, finding the setting and changing it. If not, your going to have to be an administrator on the network and go to network settings.

Its worked for me on more than a few occasions. Providing you can ping the router via a lan cable then the chances of recovering it are very high.
