Re: Signal found, but no connectivity
Try this. It should renew your configuration between your router and your internet provider:
Step 1 Log into the
web-based configuration by typing in the IP address of the router
(default:192.168.0.1) in your web browser. The username is admin (all
lowercase) and the password is blank (nothing).
Note: The 192.168.0.1 address is NOT on the internet. It is the address to the router itself.
Click the Home tab and click the WAN button. Dynamic IP Address is the
default value, however, if Dynamic IP Address is not selected as the
WAN type, select Dynamic IP Address by clicking on the radio button.
Click Clone Mac Address. Click on Apply and then Continue to save the
Step 3 Click on Status. Under WAN, Click DHCP Renew. If it does not get an IP address or times out, then continue with Step 4.
Step 4 Power cycle the cable modem and router:
Turn the cable modem off (first) Turn the router off Leave them off for 2 minutes** Turn the cable modem on (first) Wait until you get a solid cable light on the cable modem Turn the router on Wait 30 seconds
** If you have a Motorola (Surf Board) modem, leave off for at least 5 minutes.
Follow Step 1 again and log back into the web configuration. Click the
Status tab and click the Device Info button. If you do not already have
a public IP address under the WAN heading, click on the DHCP Renew and
If you're still getting no connection to the internet, another alternative (before chucking the router) would be to reset it to factory defaults, and run through the setup process again, from scratch.

1. check the current firmware updates 2. verify no other devices next the the router interfering with the signal i.e. cell phones, cordless phone, microwaves, TV sets. 3. check your router or cable modem for connection during time the wireless is dropping connectivity.
Do this with your network setup. Power down your DSL/Cable modem first by unplugging the power. Power down the router next by unplugging the power. Power off your computer also. Now , power up the dsl/cable modem and let it resync with the ISP ...all lights green and showing activity. Next power up the Linksys router and then do a factor restore reset by pushing in the reset and holding it for a count of 5 (the front lights will go red then flash) let go of the reset as your linksys router is all set to default setttings from the factory. Now power up your computer and try the internet after it boots up. Should hook to the internet with no problems now. Now access your router menu by typing http://192.168.1.1 and hit enter. The router log in menu should now display. just click on the password tab and enter admin the default password and then change your password in the router to something hard to remember and WRITE IT DOWN! There is also great help from linksys web site on networking your home. Good luck,
