No connection to internet - Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

  • Anonymous Dec 24, 2008

    I unplugged the WRT54G and my cable modem from power to do some work behind computer desk. When I plugged everything back together, the Linksys router is not working that is, cable signal does not get from the modem, through the Linksys to the hard wire ports to the computers.

    Modem is working fine (that;s how I am posting this message).

To my knowledge, the last LED (on the rightmost) would light if the LinkSys WRT54G is connected and receiving signals from a modem. If this is not lit, then perhaps it is a modem issue. If on the otherhand, there is internet connection when the modem is directly connected to a PC, then the problem is the internal circuitry of the WAN port. Incidentally, you can try a reset (at the back) on the LinkSys. This of course would revert the unit back to factory default (removing all user settings/configurations).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.

    connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
    Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
    good luck!!

    I can connect to the router but the router cant connect to the internet. If i directly connect the internet connection to my pc, it has internet connections, so the router is not connecting to the...

    Firstly please check the connections. The modem should be connected to the "Internet" port on the back of the router. And the computer can be connected to any of the 4 ports of the router. Checked the lights. They should be steady. If you have a cable connection (cable modem) than you can connect directly to the internet. Else if you are using a DSL connection than you need to configure the router according.

    **If this works please rate else let me know in case of further help.**

    The wireless internet connection wont work. we previously had a wireless connection and now it wont register. we lost the connection completely and it doesnt show up on the list of internet connections....

    Try turning off the router for 30 secs, then power it up again.
    Then try connecting a LAN cable from the computer to the router and see if you can connect to the Internet.
    If you can connect to the Internet then -
    With the LAN cable open a browser and type in the configuration URL and check the Wireless settings, then check and/or the wireless card settings (it should have the router's SSID and encryption settings etc.)
    Also install the latest wireless card driver.
    Then test the wireless and Internet connection. If this doesn't work -
    Next connect the computer with a LAN cable to the cable or DSL modem to see if you can connect to the Internet.
    If you cannot get an Internet connection with the LAN cable, contact your ISP and get them to test the connection to your modem.
    If the modem and Internet is OK and you still cannot get a wireless connection then the problem could be a faulty wireless router.

    Start from ground zero
    1. Is everything Powered up?
    2. Check you internet connection
    a. Can you directly connect to the internet by connecting a computer to the device providing the internet?
    If this is good, then do this for later. ( it may not be needed but is good to have)
    go to 'Start' -> 'Run' ->CMD[Enter]
    Now you have a DOS box.
    type CD \[Enter]
    type IPCONFIG /all > ipdata.txt[Enter]
    This copies the working IP Config that may be needed later.
    Now connect in this order Internet connection to WAN Connection of router
    Then connect one of the the LAN Connections of the router to
    the working computer.
    Turn off everything for 15 min.
    No I am not kidding. Technical reason: Clear the ARP Table back at the ISP.
    Restart the router then the computer.
    Still no internet?
    More details will be needed.
    Router Make and Model
    Internet Connection Type
    Computer Make, Model OS and Version.
    Good Luck

    Wont connect to the internet

    Try this, assuming you're using Internet Explorer: Go to Tools > Internet Options and select the Connections tab. Does it show your old dial-up connection in the list? If so highlight it and click on REMOVE. Close IE and re-open it. It should now use the Belkin LAN connection.
