Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Wireless connection to laptop

The WRT54G is working well with two computers hardwired together, but, when I attempt to connect my laptop I do not have the required information. I have misplaced my linksys information and therefore only have the codes present on the bottom of the unit. A friend brought his laptop over and had no trouble connecting to internet wirelessly ??

Have a WRT54G lately my hardwired desktop connection has been loosing it connection while my 2 laptops will stay connected with no problems.. only way hardwired connection will reconnect is to reboot...


How long have you been using the router? Might need to update the firmware on your WRT54G. But do it EXACTLY as instructed on the Linksys website, as incorrect attempt can result in need for new router. I know that sounds drastic, but you can do it just fine - just be aware that you have to follow the steps precisely as they are stated and in the correct order. Never had a problem myself, but have heard of those who did, and it was ALWAYS because they did not follow directions. If you are not comfortable doing it, get a "techie" friend to do it for you.

Hardwire ports on wireless router not working


You could

1) Reset the router to factory default by hitting the reset on back

2) You could visit the router over the wireless link (http://192.168.1.1) default password is "admin" username blank.

Check on the page to ensure the ports are enabled.

3) Update the firmware on the device. see if it works.

Note there is a port called "uplink" which is designed for the internet connection and not the local computer.

Considering How thick the walls are... the signal from your router may not be able to go through plus all the other EMI devices like Chordless phone etc.
Try Setting up the router in an open area suitable for a better signal for your laptop.

Cannot connect to wireless router


Make sure you are connected via hardwire connection. Restart router and select 'Start->Run' and enter 'ipconfig -renew'. If you are still not able to reconnect to router try pressing and holding the reset button on the back. This will restore it to the default settings including username and password.

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!!!!!

Wireless connection


Possible you did reset the router. Its okay to connect to that linksys network name. But if you want to customize you network name.

MAKE SURE TO USE THE WIRED COMPUTER TO SETUP WIRELESS CONNECTION.
Example : The Desktop computer that is connected to directly to router.


Just follow the steps.
