Question about Linksys WRT55AG Router

1 Answer

"Local Access Only"

I have a Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router that my Gateway PC Laptop Model ML3109 running win Vista will connect to, but I can't get on the internet. Everything was working fine, until it crashed. After It was fixed, It will only connect to the router "Local access only". What do I do? It actually connects to the router, but when I open a browser it says that the page cannot be displayed. When I diagnose the connection problem it says that I am am not connected to the internet. I have tried rebooting the computer, resetting the router, I tried installing the router on my laptop, but it needs an internet connection. When I plug the modem into my ethernet port, it won't let me on the internet. Iguess I need to know how to get it off local access only. The same internet is conneted to the desktop and it is doing fine.


My second problem is, my Packard Bell model 925 is running win 98 and the internet is working fine, but when I upgrade it to win XP, it looses the connection and I can't get it back until I uninstall XP.

You need to look on the back of your router and find the small reset button. Push it and everything should reconfigure. If not Go into your device manager and see if you can find something called a NIC card or Network Interface Card, or something called an Ethernet card, if those are not listed, it means your driver has been deleted somehow. You can go to the manufacturers website and download a new driver.

While 192.168.1.1 is the default IP for a Linksys router, it may not be what the router is using. If you have Vista or Windows 7, from the desktop click on the start orb and in the "search programs and files" box type "run". Then click on "run". In the run box type "cmd" and click OK. In the black box type "ipconfig/all" without the quotes. Scroll up or down until you see "default gateway". Whatever IP is listed next to the default gateway is the IP that you should use to get into the router.

Since you have already reset the router with no luck, lets go at more complicated steps. Firts of all check that your computer is using auto ip addresses. Assuming that you use Win XP, click on "start" - "settings" - "control panel" - "network connections".
Right click on "local area connection" - "properties" - choose "Internet protocol (TCP/IP)" - "properties". In case of not at automatically settings, click on both buttons to "obtain an IP address automatically" and "obtain DNS server address automatically". Your screen has to be like this:
137f7b5.jpg
Clock OK at both windows to close. Now connect your computer with ethernet cable with the router. After the connection has established (the "connecting" icon has stopped), hit start - run - type cmd. At the new black window type ipconfig and hit enter. You will get the results for ethernet (and wireless connections also in case of a laptop with Wi-Fi). The Default Gateway line is your router's ip adress, so try with your browser to connect at this page.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

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.

I lost my directions on how to install my WRT54G router and would like to be able to access from my laptop while my wife is using our desktop


On her computer, click START
Click RUN
Type CMD and press ENTER
Type IPCONFIG and press ENTER
Look for a line like: Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 124.168.136.11
Type EXIT and press ENTER
Open a web-browser (IE, FireFox, Google Chrome, etc.)
Enter: http://124.168.136.11
to access the router's web-interface.
Login -- try ID of 'admin' with a "blank" password;
try a "blank" ID with 'admin' as the password;
try ID of 'admin' and password of 'admin'.
Click on the "Wireless Setup Wizard" button.
Configure the router for wireless access.

On your laptop, refresh the list of available networks.
It should find the newly-configured network.
Connect to it.

Cannot access the internet


try this :

1. it seems that the power outrage had caused your wireless settings to be restored to its factory settings .... so there is a need to reconfigure it again ...

"
the settings that are saved to my computer do not match" --- this usually pertains to the network settings saved on your laptop, if it is vista you must delete the old profile,it also applies for xp OS ....

VISTA :
>network and sharing center
> manage wireless connections
>under networks you can view or modify, highlight the old profile then remove

XP :
>netowrk connections
> right click on wireless network connection and go to properties
>click on wireless tab
>under preferred networks (box in the middle) highlight then remove

2. to check this do ipconfig on the cmd line
•check the default gateway if it is still 192.168.1.1 or 2.1 ( the default gateway is the rtr's address)
•open your browser, then type the rtrs ip
• leave the username blank, password is admin ( small caps)
• then you are in the set up page
• check the wireless tab, and very the ssid if it is still or the name of your network which you used to connect to ...
• just save the settings if you want to make changes

****** very impt : while doing this changes, your main pc or dsktop pc must be hardwired to the router ,, never make changes wirelessly coz the connection is very instable you will be kicked of everytime ..... ***********


GOOD LUCK!!!!!

Do you have a wireless adapter installed on your win 2000 computer?

No internet connection


You didn't specify if you're using DSL or Cable internet.

With DSL, keep in mind the software1.gif on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to connect.

If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.
