Hi Guys,

What needs to be defined first is the reason as to why it had stopped working. Before a suggestion is made, we first need to find out what the model number of your router is (there are many version of the linksys wrt54g router). Once that is defined i suggest you reset your router by doing the instructions as per this web page (cop and paste in your browser): http://technicallyeasy.net/2008/01/how-to-reset-linksys-wrt54g-wireless/

Once you have done that, the router should be set to factory default leaving you with a fresh clean slate. You can then proceed to configure the router for wireless security (if you need it) by following the steps here: http://technicallyeasy.net/2007/09/securing-linksys-wrt54g-wireless-router/

The instructions on these pages should help, however, if you face any uncertainties, please do feel free to get back to me and i shall attempt to cover whatever i can do to help the both of you out. Thank you.

Regards,

Technomancer.

We moved and when everything was hooked up i cant get a connection from my linksys wireless router to my laptop


Ok - hook the power to the Linksys - then RESET - the folded out paper clip will work. Once RESET - hook it up to your ISP provided MODEM [ You must have this service to get on the web] now unplug the Modem provided by your ISP or provider - and unplug the router.
WAIT
15 seconds - then
hook up the MODEM from the provider - then hook up the router - then restart the laptop - if wired it will need to be plugged in - if wireless - run your 'search for a wireless signal and you should have it.

Thanks

I have had similar problems in the past with 3 different brands of wireless routers, including the linksys Wireles-G router. In all cases, it was the same scenario, worked fine for a year or so, and then started giving inconsistent intermittent connectivity problems. Resetting, recycling etc. etc. would work for a while and eventually it would become unusable, and I would end up replacing. I went from a D-Link wireless router, to a Belkini, to a Linksys, and now use the Apple airport wireless, which I have also recently replaced with another Apple airport wireless. So unfortunately, I can't tell you if it's me doing something to kill them or if they are just short life expectancy for wireless routers, but the only fix I have experienced is replacing the router. Good luck...

I have linksies router and 2 wire modem will they work together?


If the Modem has an ethernet port (looks like a large phone plug like the ones on the router) connect an ethernet cable from it to the "internet/wan" port on the router. If it doesn't there isn't much you can do.

Hi,

Other than the laptop and the LinkSys WRT54G, you would need an active account/subscription with an Internet Service Provider (ISP) who then will provide you with a modem of sort.

On initial setup, connect your modem to your laptop and verify that you can connect to the Internet. Thereafter run the CD installer that came with the LinkSys before connecting/powering the LinkSys. Follow on screen instruction. At one point in the installation, you would be asked to disconnect the modem, connect the router and connect the modem to the router.

Should for some reason the above instruction will not address your concern, pls post back.

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

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

Need tech advice


No and why doesn't your internet provider... provide a cable modem?? Did you just ask them to enable broadband internet service? So now you'll have to provide your own cable modem.

If what you say is correct you need a cable modem like a motorola surfboard from BestBuy.... then the cable modem plugs into your Linksys router and your PC's plug into the linksys router also.

Connection drop-outs


Is your laptop wireless adapter a compatable brand. It doesn't necessarily mean the router is bad, you may even be getting RADIO interference from a cordlees or a cell phone in it's path. Do you have the capability to plug a cat-5 cable directly into your laptop from the router when you lose wireless? Check the wireless channels and see about changing the channel on your cordless phone too. May not work, just a hunch.

Good Luck
