Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Ver6

Have been using this Linksys router for over a year with no problems. My computer is connected to the router with a broadband cable and the router is connected to the Comcast modem with the same type cable. My wife connects to the internet with a wireless computer. This past weekend we connected a second desktop computer to the modem with a broadband cable and everything worked well for a couple days. Then we could no longer access the internet with the router. The second computer has been removed, but neither my wife nor myself can access the internet through the router. We keep getting the message that the web browser can not desplay the page. My computer works fine connected to the modem when the router is removed. I tried replugging all the cables and pressing the reset button for 30 sec, but had no success.

    Could not reconfig the router with a cable internet connection. When I plugged in the router I still got the message that internet explorer could not desplay the webpage. Had to unplug router to write this comment.

    I moved my computer last night (turned off/ unplugged) and when I got set back up, I could not get on the internet. I worked with my isp provider (bellsouth) for over an hour, reconfiguring, setting new passwords, over and over... Finally I bypassed the router and just used my modem and everthing was fine. Well, except that I can't use my laptop now! I don't want to mess up this connection by trying to fix it.

This power failure could not have happened at a worst time.
Try reinstalling the upgrade again, and if this does not fix the problem then I think you have a piece of junk.

As last resort you might want to use a JTAG cable and debricking programming software. If your router is brikced or you want to change the firmware this cable can do it. The cable will connect to your parallel port and your wireless router so you can repair your router. They are about $5.95.

Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router Issue Allows 1 Computer at a time


Your router my not be DCHP enabled or it might not be assigning the IP addresses either.

I would do a reset and start all over with your security settings and see if that works. Worst case scenario you could always turn security off when your parents or others are there.

Lost wireless router CD


You can make the router working even without using the CD. Who is your ISP? Are you having concern with wired or wireless connection?
