My WRT54G2 Linksys router is not recognized by my computer at the end of the installation CD.


router is not a system device that is why you cant see your router on your computer, if your referring about the linksys installation disk this will guide you to setup your router to manage all your device that you want to connect to it. to see the router you need to connect your computer to your router using a ethernet cable on the lan port and run the linksys disk and it will walk you thru the setup of your router

Your IP address for you linksys router needs to be changed.  More than likely there using the same IP address such as 192.168.0.1.
You have to convert your linksys router to a switch and change the IP address range it uses to on that doesn't conflict with the Verizon router.
10.150.1.1 should work.

Had to switch modems today and now can not get the lynksys tom work when I am hook from the computer to the modem i get internet. How do I rehook my linksys


Yuk, Linksys has really gone down the tubes as far as ease of use of their routers. You HAVE to use the Linksys router install CD in order to reconfigure your router.

Manual setup will not work.

If you can't find the install CD, try to find it on Linksys's website, but I have been there done that and basically threw it away and got a Belkin router instead, no automated setup and much easier to use.

How do I set up my Linksys router?


Physical Setup of a LinkSys Router Each model of LinkSys router will differ slightly, but the general design is similar across all models. Therefore, the setup is similar across all models.
  1. Attach the antennas to the router (if your LinkSys router support wireless)d
  2. Plug the Ethernet cable from your broadband Internet provider into the port labeled "Internet"
  3. Plug another Ethernet cable into one of the available ports
  4. Plug the other end of that same cable into an Ethernet port on your PC
LinkSys Router Configuration LinkSys routers now ship with a Setup Wizard which is intended to simplfy basic configuration tasks.
We do not recommend the LinkSys Setup Wizard for two reasons:
  1. The Setup Wizard is not significantly easier that the regular configuration menus
  2. If you use the Setup Wizard, you will end up learning two interfaces for your LikSys router instead of just one
Instead, we recommend simply starting your web browser and jumping into the configuration.
Once your web browser is open, go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password.

Logging in to a LinkSys Router
The username is either blank or "admin" and the default password is "admin".
Once you are past the login screen, you are able to access (and change) a plethora of configuration options for your router.
Don't be worried by the enormous number and variety of options, your LinkSys router ships with default settings that enable it to work right out of the box in most environments.
From here the configuration options that you choose are largely up to your own personal preference.
If this is a wireless router, we recommend that you consider setting an SSID to identify the router as your own and configuring WEP to encrypt your wireless traffic.

If you have forgotten your LinkSys router password, the easiest thing to do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.
To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds.
Once your router is hard reset, you will need to login and reconfigure it again.
To reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router.

Cannot get online with Wireless G WRT54G router. Can get online by pressing Cisco Systems button but only temporarily.


Do U see the router signal on the wireless network connection search?
Sometimes the linksys systems cd does not want to work on some pc's. try using the control panel - add/remove programs and uninstall all programs for the linksys. Then goto the control panel - system - hardware and uninstall the linksys card. Leave the actual card installed and reboot. After it detects your card use the linksys cd to load only the driver.
In the properties of the wireless connection, let windows manage it.
The above is based upon the factory defaults of the router. Any keys to access the router would have to be used on the pc.

I have a cable modem, Motorola SB5101, Nd need to connect my linksys wireless router.


If this is a first install of a brand new Linksys router:
Just plug your cable modem to the back of your linksys router's internet port, then plug a computer to Port 1 on your router, type http://192.168.1.1 in your internet browser on the computer connected to Port 1, you will access the setup page of your linksys router (leave the user name field blank and type admin as password)
Now you can go to http://www.cas411.com/ShowArticle.aspx?ID=68 to setup your wireless securely, you do not want to just leave it at its default settings, as anybody could then use your internet access or worst, check what you are doing on your computer.
Let me know if you need more help!
