Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I have connected all the proper cables and unplugged from the wall and replugged restarted computer several times and I can not get the router to send the IP address to the computer. I thought it was my router, I hooked a newer one up and it doesn't work either, so it's not my router it's in the connection somewhere. Last month we had hurricane Ike go thru here and it took down the internet line. So, when we got that back up suddenly the router would no longer work. I have been trying to figure it out on my own by reconnecting, unplugging all that ! Now I am frustrated and don't know what to do next. I can't get the IP address screen to continue on with the setup. Now if this heps, I have run all the network Diagnostics and this was found. No, HTTP, HTTPS, FTP connectivity. And I do have them enabled in the security section of internet options. Please help.
Reset your rourter, with a pin or a paper clip for 30 seconds and disconnect power and wait for 30 seconds and reconnect it back and check if the power light is lit up in your router first..if yes, connect the modem cable out to the wan port of your router, and check if the wan light is lit up in your router, if yes connect a lan cable from the number 1 lan port of the router to the desktop pc and check if the lan 1 light is light up if yes the router is working properly, then check for the ipaddress in your desktop..if not your router might have gone bad..if you have any doubts rever back..

NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.
Connecting the Devices Together
After confirming the Internet connection through the modem, connect the modem to the Internet port of the router; connect the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports at the back of the router. For instructions, click here.
Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.
Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using a Mac computer to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.
On the Setup tab, click the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.
Select Enabled then click Clone My PC's MAC.
Click Save Settings.
Click the Status tab.
Check the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're still unable to access the Internet, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
NOTE: If the IP address is still 0.0.0.0, click IP Address Release then, click IP Address Renew. If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
