Question about ASUS WL-500g Wireless Router (WL500GDLX)

1 Answer

Exactly ASUS WL-500g, no internet connection

I have a static IP/Netmask/Gateway/DNS, works perfectly with my laptop. This laptop doesn't have wireless (win xp). Also tried these settings with another laptop (so a different MAC), again works fine. Well, when I try to connect the router to the internet it simply doesn't work. My setup is as follows: INTERNET CABLE -> WAN PORT from the router and LAPTOP <- NETWORK CABLE -> ROUTER (tried all ports) Basically I have no internet connection. Am I doomed to stay wired and ignore the router from now on? :( Or eventually do I need to change the router? Any help would be greately appreciated guys. Thanks a lot.

    Thanks a lot for the info. I was also digging on the internet and found the possible problems (www.wl500g.info)

    First, my setup doesn't have a modem. My net connection comes from a cable, that's all there is. Don't know what's on the other end of the UTP cable :)

    But, to cut the story short, here's what I found.

    It seems that Asus has a BIG problem with the WAN port. It just dies. Same thing might happen with an eventual video camera linked to it through an USB port.

    This firmware (ver 1.9.2.7 coming from Asus) is supposed to correct that (haven't tested myself yet) http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/wireles...
    but on www.wl500.info the guys were complaining that it doesn't.

    Also, there's another patch, 1.9.5.0, I don't know anything about it and it's big, 150MB:http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/wireles...

    Anyway, I've seen a bunch of firmwares (unofficial, use at your own risk onhttp://www.wl500g.info/forumdisplay.php?...

    They are supposed to correct the malfunctions of Asus WL500G. Again, I myself haven't tested any of them until now, will do shortly.

    Hope that's useful for another guy visiting.

    All the best
    --amo.

My advice and personal experiences with both wired and wireless connectivity, is if you wish to share files and internet connection, purchase a combined Modem/Router and not a seperate router to work along side your original modem. Your modem will send your router an ip address in turn your pc is sent one from your router and can get complicated; keep it simple! These are much easier to set up and control as one unit and if there are ever any connection problems you will know it's either a setting or a modem/router problem and not have to wonder ; is it the modem?; Router? settings? etc. As there are frequent loss of connections both internet and LAN it makes sense have one peice of equipment to maintain.

  • Go into settings
  • Wireless and settings
  • Wi-Fi settings
  • Click on the menu botton and select advanced
  • Select use static IP
  • IP address would be a random IP address from your wireless router
  • Gateway would be the gateway address from your wireless router
  • The netmask is your subnet mask address
  • The 2 DNS addresses are your Default Ip address from your own router and wireless switch
  • If you have issues copy the details from the Ipconfig /all command from Dos

This could be a few things. all are simple settings.

If you can see other computers but can't get out, your acer needs the gateway ip number. If you are running DHCP this should be automatically set but you can also manually edit the IPV4 settings
TCP/IP and add the gateway as well as the other settings. The gateway is the ip# of your router that is connected to the cable modem or the dsl modem.

As long as you don't have the number range set you can fairly safely add any number in the allowable range. So you could edit the tcp/ip settings with something like the following:

adress: 192.168.2.25
netmask: 255.255.255.0
gateway: 192.168.2.1 ** insert actual addy of router.

DNS servers can be found on your isp's info page. You can use any dns server that will let you connect. Without the dns you won't get out on the net either unless supplied by DHCP.

I have tried for days to get it to connect to my wifi conection it finds it with strong signal but wont let me use the internet what am i doing wrong please help


hi

type ipconfig/all
hit enter

You need to have a different IP address than he has, so if his is 192.168.1.11, pick the last number and add 100 to it to be safe, so yours would be 192.168.1.111 (just an example)

Your netmask will be the same as his, 255.255.255.0
your gateway will be the same as his

You also need to have the DNS servers that are listed, there should be 2 of them, write both of them down.

So, on your sheet of paper, you will have a unique IP address, the same netmask and gateway, and 2 dns servers.

Go to your PC, start, control panel, network connections, right click on Wireless Network Connection, then select properties, On the general tab screen, Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and click properties,

Then enter your unique IP address, netmask, gateway, and both dns servers. Click ok, then ok again.

Then on your notebook/pc, click on start, run, type cmd, hit enter
type 'ipconfig/all'
hit enter, your info should match your neighbors except for the IP address
type 'ipconfig/flushdns'
hit enter
type 'exit'

now try to get online with internet explorer, you should be successful, if your not, post back on here with your results and I'll get back to you.

Access point configuration


Access is easy to configure, you just need to understand basic setup you need to do and just have to find the same options on the configuration page of any wireless access point.

Things to setup.
1. Local IP Address ( You will get default 192.168.1.1 according to your device guide, still you can set different (not recommended, if not expert) )

2. Setup WAN IP-This could be dial up connection (PPPOE) or Internet IP Address provided by your internet provider.

3. Setup Wireless access point SSID, this is what you will find when you scan for wireless connection available

4. Setup security settings. You can setup WPA or WAP to protect security. Just need to select and assign key/password which you will be asked while connecting SSID

Follow the link for exact information on how to setup your Access Point

Cannot connect to internet


Make the Ip address similary to the router, example 192.168.1.25 should work.
SUbnet mask will then fill in automaticaly, just leave it
then Default gateway will be the routers IP. 192.168.1.1
the dns server would be the ip of your internet provider. I would leave it blank at first, see if it will work then. If not, then ask your service provider for it. If they give u a number, then you will have to go into the router properties, and change the dns and stuff like that in there aswell.
good luck

Laptop keeps disconnecting then connecting every so often.


Has the computer ever stayed on long enough to connect to the internet?

Is there a wired computer working when attached to the router?

If not, if possible please try to connect the laptop wired to the router as a test and tell me if it works.

I am trying to determine if your router works with the internet before considering the wireless connection simplying the initial problem. Once the router works wired is time to try the wireless. Once the wireless works unsecured you may want to change the router and wireless adapter to secure the wireless network. So this can be a three step process.
