Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router can't connect to the internet suddenly.

About 3 wks ago my pc began to kcik me off the internet frequently and now I can almost never get a connection. Comcast came out to check if it was the modem and they said it was fine. The laptop works at cafes where they have free wi-fi , so I assume it must be the router. It's approx 3 yrs old, Linksys won't help me at all over the phone until I shell over 40 bucks for a "new warrenty" on the router. That seems a bit steep especially if I can just but a new one for not too much more than that. I'm not a computer person, so my lack of knowledge is frusterating and I can't tell if I'm being taken advantage of....Any help would be so appreciated. What should I do???? Thanks, Kate

Will not connect to internet whether it is wired or not


connect the broadband modem to the internet port of your router (probably is blue). Then connect your pc to the router.

You have to set your router to act as dns.

WIFI not working with Linksys wireless-g broadband router/Comcast


Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.
To secure your router with a login password and wireless security, please follow my instructions - click on this link :-

Connection


Hi Susie
With related to your particular issue it seems like that your broadband modem is not configured for the router. There are basically 2 types of connection. DSL and Cable modem. Verizon, ATT are DSL and comcast other providers give you a normal cable broadband connection. If its comcast make sure the cable from the comcast modem is going to the internet port in the linksys router and also make sure that there is a system connection the linksys router and the cable from the system goes to any of LAN 1, 2, 3 and 4 ports. Then reset your cable modem by using a pin and inserting to the reset hole in the modem. You could use the same step to reset your linksys router as well .If its a verizon or dsl connection you need to put normally your username and password in the router page. here is the link to how to configure linksys for your internet modem.
Here is a video as well on it?

I have a linksys wireless-g broadband router. A couple of weeks ago I became unable to connect to the internet through this router. I am able to connect to the internet, however, using a direct connection...


Since you did not include your exact model number and type of internet provider I cannot give you more specific instructions. Although you can refer to the links below on how to set it up. If you require further assistance just reply to this and give me the model number of your ISP and the model of your router. Also answer this question " When you plug your computer to your modem do you get online automatically or do you need a username and password"

DSL

Cable

Trying to install Linksys wrt54gx2 srx200 on my vista computer


who is your broadband provider? Is this cable or DSL connection? Setting up the router is done via http://192.168.1.1. Leave username blank, password is admin. If you have Cable ISP, then make sure you have "Automatic Configuration-DHCP" selected and MAC address Clone is enabled on Setup > MAC address Clone (click Clone, and Apply). If it's a DSL connection and your broadband provider gave you a username and password, select "PPPoE" for Internet Connecton Type, and enter in your DSL username and password. Next verify if your modem is communicating with the router by going to the Status page and by verifying that you have an Internet IP address. If none, wait for a few minutes and power cycle your modem and router.
