Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Intermittent internet I have a wireless router in my home and I have an IMAC with the airport wireless. I have a new wireless provider that offers 5Mbps service. I have recently been getting intermittent connectivity where I have service, then I don't. I have called their technical support while I have been having trouble and they say they can ping my dish (on my roof) at 9Mbps and that my connectivity with them is fine. Would my router work then not then work then not like that? I have a Linksys 803.11 G&B router that I have had for 3 years. Is it time for a new one? Could it be my vonage router that is dying? If it is time for a new one, what do you recoomend?

You might have had it for too long. the same thing happened to me with the same router (i didn't have an imac though). the internet kept on going down and it got really anoying. there was nothing we could do, we tried everything. and eventually, we just got a verizon wireless router. im not saying that you absolutly should get verizon (although we've never had a problem with it) . if i were you, i would get a different router. but thats just me....

How can I connect my Imac with my Toshiba hdtv Series V4210U via airport extreme?


Does your Toshiba have a wireless adapter? If so, you can set up a home network, if you don't already have one. If no,Does the iMac have a VGA or HDMI connector? You can connect via a adapter cable, Vga to HDMI or a HDMI cable, depending on the iMac connections.

I have an GT704-WG Rev B; Firmware= 30.17.0 which is connected to my (Macintosh) iMac running OS 10.6.7. Until about 6 months ago my older laptop (Mac, iBook, PowerPC purchased in 2001) was able to use...


Turn the Verizon router off.
Turn the ActionTec router off.
Turn the Verizon router on, and wait until its pattern of lights settles-down to a steady pattern, i.e., fully rebooted.
Turn the ActionTec router on.
Turn the ActionTec router on, and wait until its pattern of lights settles-down to a steady pattern, i.e., fully rebooted.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect from one of the LAN ports on the ActionTec router to the network port on your iMac.
You should now have Internet access.

The next step is to start Safari on the Mac, and connect to the web-server "inside" the ActionTec router, e.g., try http://192.168.0.1 and http://192.168.1.1 and http://192.168.2.1

Login to the router, and run the Wireless Networking Setup Wizard, to configure the wireless adapter:
* SSID -- the name of your network
* encryption-level, e.g., use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* password for your SSID

Once you've done this, any of your wireless devices should be able to connect to that SSID, and gain Internet access.

I just bought a lap top and want to know how to set up with my home broadband


First you need to decide what type of broadband service you require and these are -
1. DSL which uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable which uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network which uses the mobile/cell phone service and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account
Note - combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service and your laptop has a wireless card then you can also connect to the Internet at WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless network, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.

Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associates additional cost if you exceed the monthly download limits.

Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

Not connecting wirelessly to mac


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

Depending on what type of Internet service you are using, your Intel iMac comes standard with an Airport Extreme wireless card built in. As a result, if you are unable to connect wirelessly to the Internet, you will need to try this:

- Click on the Apple menu icon, located in the upper left corner of your screen and select System Preferences from the drop down menu.

- Now locate Network from within System Preferences.
- In the side window, make sure you see Airport and check also to see that it is turned on. If it is, then check the left side window to see if the AirPort connection is active.

Keep in mind, your modem or connection router of course, has to be able to provide wireless connectivity, otherwise, if you do not, there will be no need to try connecting via your AirPort Extreme card.

If your network has been physically set as a wireless network, then just turning on the AirPort card in System Preferences>Network will start discovering all networks within its range, including your own network.

So whether you are using an Airport Extreme, Express or a 3rd party (non-Apple-branded) router, you should be able to connect wirelessly.

If you are still unable to connect with these basic steps, here are a few articles you will need to review from Apple Support informational database:
Requirements for wireless Internet access with AirPort
Airport & Bluetooth interference (for connectivity issues)

So here are some basic steps and resources you can try.

If you have more questions please feel free to post a comment.

I hope this information helps.

Regards,

My laptop will connect with the internet though a home router. At a hotel or airport it will not connect with the internet service provided by these places. What is wrong


More information needed:
Does your laptop have a wireless adapter?
How do you connect at home? (wireles or ethernet cable?)
What brand of laptop do you have?
What troubleshooting steps have you already taken?

For your information, when away from your home network, you must change your wireless settings to point to the hotel or airport provider where you are trying to connect.

Usually hotels have some contact information and some basic support (some better than others) for their wireless connections.

Airport settings in Mac leopard


Make sure your ADSL router has wireless capability or wireless function. Verify that from your Internet Provider. If your ADSL router doesn't have wireless function, you need to buy a separate wireless router then cascade it to your ADSL router, from there your airport must be working fine.

Have a new imac with leopard and it has a built in airport, how do i get the dlink on my pc to recognise it



To join an AirPort network:
1.
Choose Apple > System Preferences, and then click Network.
2.
Click AirPort in the network connection services list and choose a wireless network from the Network Name pop-up menu. Enter the password for the network if necessary.
If the network you expected is not in the list, it may be a “closed” network and not be available in the list. Try clicking Other, and then enter the network name and password if necessary.
If AirPort isn’t in the list, click Add (+) at the bottom of the list, choose AirPort from the Interface pop-up menu, give the AirPort service a name, and then click Create.
