Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Wap54g linksys router power & activity lights flashing

No connection to the device from either ethernet or wireless, used a Fluke Networks Etherscope to analyze for any detail on configured IP, SSID and nothing.

My feeling is that the firmware is shot?

I can't realy reset these devices as they need me to verify if the firmware has been tampered with.

    Did you carefully check the power supply ?

    Hi!

    Resetting the unit will return it to factory settings (IP address, SSID, wireless security only). The firmware will not be affected - it will retain whatever firmware it have.



    If you want to access the settings of the unit - connect a PC to it. By default the WAP54G is on static IP (192.168.1.245), but it does not have a DHCP server. You will have to set your PC to static IP (use an IP that's on the same range with the device - say 192.168.1.10). Try to ping it - if you get replies you may be able to access it's web interface. Open an internet browser - type htpp://192.168.1.245 and hopefully you will have access to it's settings ( username: (blank); password: admin)



    I hope that helps.



    Good luck and have a nice day!

The best would be to leave it as it is and take it to the warranty people or just do a hard reset as Kenshin99 has mentioned above.

Make sure the Modem is plugged into the correct port on the E1000 (far left port labelled 'internet' on a yellow background). Unplug all the devices power cables and restart them in order from the wall (modem - router - PC/MAC) make sure the modem has link and activity lights flashing, if there is a light for 'internet' wait for it to be on before plugging in the router. You might want to call your ISP and confirm theres nothing funky with the line/modem.

peter_picasa:

You cannot use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) to connect directly to your IPS's modem. A WAP does not provide the ability to share a single IP address on the internet like a router does.

Either return the WAP for a refund and buy a wireless router or buy an Ethernet wired-only router and plug the WAP into the LAN side of that router. You would then plug the WAN side of the Ethernet wired router into your modem.

I have a Linksys wap54g wireless router and it has just started dropping the signal. My DSL modem that it is connected to is working fine. I have powered off and reset multiple times but without much...


If you recently started using cordless phones that use the 2.4GHz frequency spectrum, this can cause your WiFi signals to drop-out.
Other forms of interference can come from:
  • Microwave ovens
  • Bluetooh enabled devices
  • Other nearby WiFi routers/APs using the same channel
Additionally, if you haven't secured your router using WPA/WPA2 security, a neighbor may be leeching off of your WiFi network and download files on P2P networks. This would cause your router to become saturated with traffic and appear to crash. Make sure that your router is properly secured with WPA/WPA2 security (not WEP, since it can be cracked within a few minutes) and make sure that you change the admin password.

Ethernet lights 1-4 are lit, wireless light out


wireless light will be ON only if you have connected any wireless devices to your network... security light will be ON only if you enabled password to connect to your wireless network.... if you have changed any settings in the router recently, then delete the saved list of networks in the computer.... then search for wireless networks in range and connect to your network....

How to configure Huwaei MT880 with linksys WRT120N router?


Try these steps:
  1. Shut down the DSL/Cable modem
  1. Power up the router (no cables just yet).
  1. Power up the modem and wait for the appropriate lights (power, ethernet, and activity – something along these lines)
  1. Connect the modem and router with an ethernet cable (if there is a WAN port on the router make sure to put the cable in this port).
  1. Connect Port 1 on the router to the network card on the computer using an ethernet cable and check to see there is a light at the correct port.
  1. Open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. Input your routers id (usually an IP address or an URL) in the browsers address bar and press Enter. The address bar is where you would normally see, for example, http://www.google.ca If you don't know the IP address (such as 192.168.1.1) or the URL, try going to the manufacturers web site and downloading a manual.
  1. Now, a window will open asking for a user name and password (these are given to you in the instructions of the router). For example, Dlink sets up some of their routers as, username: admin and leave the password field blank then press OK.
  1. Now you are in the configuration page of your router (wireless most probably). Here you can set the encryption, new passwords etc… If your not comfortable doing these on your own most routers have a wizard that you can follow.
  1. If everything goes alright and the settings are successful you can now try the wireless connection. Go to a machine with a wireless card, right
  1. At the computer with the wireless connection, make sure the connection is on You might be trying to connect to the network by using either the application that came with the router or windows wireless configuration. Right click the icon in the system tray and “view available networks”. If it comes up in a window saying “Windows is not setup for wireless networks” then you must right click on the correct icon in the tray.
  2. Now, in the list of available networks, click on the name of your network Click on "connect" and it should ask for your security id (the encryption code). Put in the code (usually twice) and click connect or OK. It should now be "acquiring anip address" and in a few minutes it should be connected.

Linksys WAP54G connection to WRT54G


Ok, so why do you need an access point upstairs and a router downstairs connected wirelessly? If you can't connect with a laptop or a pc, why whould you think you could connect the access point? The purpose of this configuration would have to be with the access point to the router via ethernet. What's the point? If the problem is range, check out http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php to enhance the capabilities of the WRT54G... and maybe building a parabolic antenna for it as well. Plans to do so abound at Lifehacker.com.
