Internet connection-Linksys Wireless B

I moved my computer set-up for a few days. When I set it up again I lost the wireless internet connection to the broadband router on my main computer. Can disconnecting it cause a problem? How do I troubleshoot this issue?

Thanks, Bill

Try to reset computer by unplugging for 1 hours and put it back after 1hour. If the reset did not work try using an usb powered hub in the middle, this sometimes fix the problem.
If the HDD still does not work after the above then it is probably faulty.

Did you move the router out of range of the computer? It sounds like you put it back where it was but I just thought I'd ask.

Otherwise, use your wired connection to check the router settings. It is possible that the wireless settings defaulted due to the disconnection. You can either set the router to match your wireless computer if you can remember, or just set up a fresh wireless connection between the two.

I have a lynksys router. It will work with our mac, but if i try to get online with my pc, neiter will connect or if one is connected, it will disconnect. can i fix this


Hi,

I see that you are having issues with your network connection, I believe that you are trying to connect wireless on both systems.

* Check your Linksys for settings that limit the routers wireless connection, most wireless routers have an option on how many computers can connect wireless to the router, a wireless signal does not chose what OS to allow for a wireless connection.

* get in your Linksys Routers Setting page from IE or Firefox using your Default gateway IP from there on you can check your Routers settings, user name depends if your internet service provider changed the Routers user name and password but for a Linksys try admin / password or admin / admin for the User name and Password field.

Hope this helps you thanks and have a good day.

Unable to connect to the internet using a linksys wireless adapter. Connects to the router but can't find the internet.


Isolate the issue by directly connecting the PC to the router via ethernet cable (if possible).

If you were able to get online while hardwired connected to the router, then check the IP address of the wireless network connection, check the wireless security if the network key matches.

If you cannot get online while hardwired to the router, then directly connect the computer to the modem.

If you were able to get online while directly connected to the modem, then the problem is the internet settings on the router. Check the WAN configuration, such as DHCP or PPPoE.

If you cannot get online when directly connected to the modem, then you will need to contact your Internet Service Provider.

If it says local or unidentified network that means you are just connected to the router on the network but not through the internet. Try to go to manage wireless network, remover your network there and add it again, connect to your own network and make sure to type the correct network key., then check again. You can also try connecting to other wireless network to further isolate the problem.
