Re: linksys model wrt54g
There can be a problem with the settings of the router that's why only 1 computer is working with it, the best thing that you can do here is to reset the router and reconfigure it back, To reset it press and hold the reset button for 15 seconds while the power is ON then if you have the setup CD you can just run it like when you first install the router but if not you can also manually reconfigure the router if you're not familiar on how to do a manual setup on the router better call Linksys tech support to walk you through with that process they are open 24/7 this is the number 800-3267114...

Your Linksys router might be secured, so your going to have to open a port for it to able to connect to the laptop. I am not an Expert on routers, but maybe Linksys will be able to help you. You can do the Linksys Live Chat, or you could can look around at the Linksys support site. If this doesnt work, please do not give me a bad rating. Instead, tell me in a comment and I will try to assist you further.
First of all you need to connect to your router using a LAN connection (wireless won't work as you might not be connected wirelessly due to the missing WEP key) and follow the steps below:
1.) using the internet explorer (not AOl or MSN or..)but the internet explorer that your computer came with. 2.) enter "192.168.1.1" in the website address field. do NOT use www in front. 3.) this will bring you to a linksys website. You might need to login (default username and password is admin) 4.) click on wireless 5.) then wireless security 6.) then you will see the page with the wep key listed. 7.) use the first wep key listed.
In case nothing helps, you will need to hard reset your router which would erase all the settings and configuration and bring the router back to factory settings. You may refer to the manual to perform the hard reset, in case you have lost the manual leave a comment and we shall provide you the next steps.
First of all u should ensure that DHCP server is configured for your required number of computers. this problem seems that you have less clients configured in your DHCP server, existing in router configuration.
Please connect the laptop to the linksys router with the cable provided. On the linksys, connect the able in any port from 1-4. Please do not connect the laptop to the Internet port.
From the start menu, select Run. Type in cmd and press enter. At the prompt, type in ipconfig. On the line that says Default Gateway -> this is the address of the router when connected to the computer and (DHCP being on).
Make a note of the Default Gateway and type it in the address bar in an Internet Explorer window. At the login prompt, leave the username prompt blank and type admin for password.
This will allow you to access the web GUI.
Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a good feedback. Thanks...
