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.

How to get internet


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

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service and yourlaptop has a wireless card then you can also connect to the Internet at WiFihot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access theInternet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to checkthe service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to checkwith the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and thecost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed themonthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider,their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installationCD.http://www.fixya.com/support/r6165994-setting_up_broadband_connection

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 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.

Lost Net Connection after iMac was disconnected from Network


Cable modems don't usually have this issue so I'll assume your on a DSL connection, 56K modem, or someother phone related variant. You were most likely setup for a connection through your Airport using local IP settings on each machine and when you moved the machine you reconfigured yourself with a DHCP address. There are two solutions. (1) Reconfigure every machine for DSL (2) Configure your airport for DSL and connect everything to it.

Unfortunately the process from one provider to another varies slightly. But for that reason I generally only recommend cable for multi-computer housholds sharing a web connection.

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.

Airport has signal


The airport has a wireless signal but its not supplied by your provider. In order to use wireless at the airpport you have to pay their provider too.

Your system can receive and send to the wireless network in the airport but usually when you have connected to their wireless network, once you open a browser (IE or Firefox) it will provide you with a sign up page where they want you to pay typically $9.99 for 24 hours of use of their wireless network, which you sign up for with a credit card.

So you should be able to recieve that page but you can't access the rest of the internet unless you pay them for access.

Sorry

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.
