Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

3 Answers

Cannot access the internet

I have a desktop PC and a laptop PC. I cannot access the internet with the laptop using the WRT54G router as we had an electrical outage last night.

Everything was fine before that. The message I am getting says that the settings that are saved to my computer do not match the settings on the router.

How do I go about getting these settings right?

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!!!!!

Is the laptop wireless?
Was it plugged into a surge protector during the outage?
Try :
1. deleting the network settings for the wireless connection in network settings of the control panel
2. readd the network connection.

I want to disable the wireless signal from the hours of 12:05am-6:00am. I have one computer physically connected to the router, and 2 xbox 360's and one laptop using the wireless signal.


Hi, you can set up an Internet access policy through the router that will block Internet access for specific computers. The Internet Access Policy screen can be found in the router's configuration software, under Access Restrictions and then Internet Access. You can choose time ranges to block and specific computers or devices for it to apply to.

Low or poor signal is mainly caused by the following major factors:

Going Around Physical Obstructions
Wireless networks are also susceptible to obstructions that may lead to low signal. Often, the signal gets reflected, refracted or absorbed by the obstruction.

Common obstructions are:

  • Cabinets
  • Mirrors
  • Glasses
  • Metal objects
  • Thick walls and ceilings


If you have any of these objects between your wireless adapter and access point, consider relocating your access point somewhere high to get around the obstruction.

The security you have installed on your system is restricting access to the router. Whatever security you are using, you need to add the router's ip address i.e. 192.168.1.1 in the exception list.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Hi,

It really depends on what "modem" Orange provided you with and how your personal PC is connected to the modem.

If the "modem" provided by Orange uses WiFi (such as Livebox) networking, then it is a matter of setting up your daighter's laptop to access and use the Livebox WiFi Network. In this case no router is needed since your modem is also a router.

If your PC is connected via Ethernet port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" is a single Ethernet output port, you would need an AP/Router (Wireless since I am presuming the your daughter's laptop would be accessing the Internet wirelessly) such as the LinkSys WRT54G.

If your PC is connected via USB port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" has only a USB output port (no Ethernet), you need to make your PC as the default gateway/software router and share your PC's Internet connection. If you are connecting your daughter's laptop using Ethernet cable, then you don't need a WiFi AP/Router but an ordinary hub. If on the other hand the new laptop would connect wirelessly, you would still need something like the WRT54G.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
