Cannot connect to internet today. Yesterday all was well.


If the modem works and a desktop pc works through the Ethernet port of the router, then try plugging the pc laptop into the same Ethernet port using the same cable as the desktop. Most laptops have an Ethernet port.

If this works, then the problem is the wireless access?

Check you still have the wireless set-up on the pc laptop, if not re-install it.

I have a laptop running vista ultimate 32 bit version and i am having problems connecting to the internet. It says I am connected but will browse the internet. Are the troubleshooting steps the same as...


The steps are the same though the menus and screens you go through to do them are a bit different from XP. Pretty much all the software steps you can do are covered by the troubleshooter in vista and 7 though, so if you have ran that without a solution, then the likelyhood that it's a setting in windows causing the issue is fairly low.

First I would confirm that your connection is actually working. If you are attempting to connect the laptop with wireless it is not uncommon for routers to stop responding correctly to wireless clients, or even for the wireless portion of a router to die while wired connections still work perfectly. Try plugging the laptop in with a wire and see if you still have the same problem. If wired worked but wireless did not, then unplug your router, wait about 30 seconds and plug it back in. Retry the wireless and if it still does not work then a replacement router will be required to use wireless, though you could get a second cable and use it wired until you do replace it.

I have a linksys wireless g router that worked fine until yesterday. Now it won't connect to the internet. I have a desktop wired to the router and a laptop used wireless.


Check if you can connect to the internet when hooked directly to the modem. If your connection works fine through the modem, then your router needs to be reconfigured.

I need to know y my computter dont get internet


Because your wireless network is lacking ...

There are many reasons for limited coverage with wireless ... aluminised wall paper, multiple walls, electromagnetic fields. With your computer, the antenna is probably minimal.

If you want good, fast coverge, run some Cat 5 wire to the places you require access where there is no wireless. The wire connections will work better too.

Wireless Router suddenly stopped working.


Try resetting the Linksys back to the factory defaults and configure it again.
Power up the router and press the pinhole RESET button on the back of the router for 30 sec
Connect a LAN cable to the wireless router and open a browser and enter to router's configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings, remove the LAN cable when configuration is completed.
You need to configure then wireless card in the computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings.

How do i set up internet connection for my acer laptop after resetting to factory settings


Hi.
Check your Device Manager if your internet driver is installed. If it appears yellow (?) in the internet folder, your CD that goes with your unit can install that. If you try intalling that, open an internet explorer if it doesn't try Mozilla.
Second try to open start menu and click all connections. Click wireless portion and set to IP properties that will automatically detect IP address.
Set to enable... Then browse... Enjoy...

Connecting laptops to wireless Router


Go into the admin portion of the router by typing the ip address in internet explorer. By default your router should by http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1

the default user id is admin

the default password is linksys or admin

go to the wireless section set the signal for mixed and assign an ID that your laptops can recognize when scanning.

By default your channel id should be 6. If the notebooks aren't communicating set the channel id to 6 on the network cards.

Once thats connected then you can work on your wep encyption.

Linksys will not allow any admin work on their routers performed unless a computer is on a wired connection. Only the wired computer can do the admin work.

No connectivity


There is a possibility that the wireless settings are not similar for the wireless adapter and the router. You can check the wireless settings of the router from its setup page.

1) Connect a computer to the router using a wire
2) Open an Internet browser and access 192.168.1.1 (or if you changed it, use the IP you have set)
3) If it asks for Username and password, defaults are admin for User name, password for Password
4) find the wireless portion and take note of the SSID, channel, Security type and the password
5) Once you have all that, set the wireless settings on your g card.

There are some g cards that has their own wireless utility. If that is the case, you need to open the utility for the G card and set the wireless settings there.

If that does not work, you can try removing all the preferred network and reconnect. If a wireless security key is needed, you have to correctly enter that to fix this problem.

Network not working after dsl modem connected to router


I assume this message indicates that wired connectiions to the router are successfully accessing the internet -- is that true?

Wireless are not accessing the internet, but appear to be connected to the router - is that true.

Do you know how to run PING? IF so ping the router from the wired and wireless and see if it works? IF it works wired and not wireless we have a wireless issue. IF it works from both we probably have a IP issue diagnosis follows this.

Do you know how to run IPCONFIG /ALL -- If so run it on the wired machine and the wireless machines -- gather the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS addresses from each machine. Any machine lacking DNS addresses or with invalid DNS addresses can not access the internet sites by name like www.google.com. If the gateway address is incorrect a machine cannot access the internet.

If you do not understand any of the above please ask by adding a comment to this message and I will attempt to provide detailed instructions.

Please provide the operating system of your computers to assist in providing directions.
