Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

Finding a local area connection

When i start my computer it says that its status is aquiring network address, but then it says that the local area connection status is limited or no connectivity and that it is not able to access the internet or some network resources. Is there a universal address that can be assigned? I do not have the manual, or is it because of the rural area i live in?

Is this a wireless connection?
If yes than most of the times the problem is that the signal is weak, try to put your Router/AP to a better place and see if you can connect, netstumbler can give you a hand in this, not sure if it's working under vista or not, but under xp it's perfect. My experience ist that what you need to have at least is 15 For SNR for your Router from the place where you are trying to connect. If it goes under 10 it will drop you down.
Better SNR means stronger signal and that's all that matters with a simple wireless connection.

How can i get an ip address


Firstly, what operating system are you using?
applicable for windows xp or windows 7. press Windows Key + R
select the appropriate network connection (e.g. Local Area Connection). Right click the Local Area Connection choose Properties. For windows xp, doble click Internet Protocol. For Windows 7, double click Internet protocol IPv4. choose Obtain an IP address automatically. press OK. right click again the Local area connection then choose Status. there tou can see that your computer is negotiating for an IP address from the dhcp server. if still cannot obtain an ip address, press Windows key +Run then type "services.msc". scroll down and find DHCP client. ensure that this service is running.
Please also try to check if the network you are connected does have a DHCP server.

If you have Windows XP then try this, for Windows 7 and Vista also the procedure is similar. If you have Vista or 7 then tell me I'll post the tutorial for that also.
  1. In Windows XP, click the Start button and select Control Panel.

  2. Click the Network and Internet Connections category.

  3. Note: If you are using Classic View, you will see the control panel icons instead of categories. Double-click the Network Connections icon.

  4. Click the Network Connections control panel icon.

    wxp_e03.gif

  6. When the Local Area Connection Status window is displayed, click the Properties button.

    wxp_e04.gif

  7. In the Local Area Connection Properties window, do the following:
    • Verify that the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) box is checked.
    • Note: If your Ethernet adapter is not listed in the Connect using box, you need to install your adapter.

    • Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) once to highlight it and then click the Properties button.

  8. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties window, do the following:
    • Click Obtain an IP address automatically.

How come the http://192.168.123.254 address isnt working?



Find your computer's IP address : Windows 7, Vista, and XP, using the command prompt

  1. Click Start, and then select All Programs. Note: If this doesn't match what you see, refer to About navigation settings in Windows.
  2. Click Accessories, and then Command Prompt.

  3. At the command prompt, enter: ipconfig The IP address (or IPv4 address, if you are using Windows 7 or Vista) will be a series of numbers following the pattern xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (i.e., 156.56.27.32).
Note: If you are using PPP with a modem at home, your IP address will change each time you log in.
Windows 7, without using the command prompt
  1. In the system tray, click the network connection icon and select Open Network and Sharing Center.

  2. To view the IP address of a wired connection, click Local Area Connection. To view the IP address of a wireless adapter, click Wireless Network Connection (Network Name).
  3. Click Details... . Your IP address will appear next to "IPv4 Address".
Windows Vista, without using the command prompt
  1. From the Start menu, right-click Network, and then select Properties. This opens the Network and Sharing Center.

  2. To view the IP address of a wired connection, click View Status to the right of Local Area Connection. To view the IP address of a wireless adapter, click View Status to the right of Wireless Network Connection.
  3. Click Details... . Look for the address next to "IPv4 IP Address".

  1. From the Start menu, right-click My Network Places, and then click Properties.

  2. To view the IP address of a wired connection, double-click Local Area Connection. To view the IP address of a wireless adapter, double-click Wireless Network Connection.
  3. Click the Support tab, and then click Details... . The window that appears will display the IP address.
Your IP address has to be in the 192.168.123.xxx range



The router must be configured to match your

Internet service. If you do not know your

Internet connection configuration, please

contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

By default, the router is pre-configured with

these settings:

• Automatically set IP addresses for

computers on your LAN (connected to the

router's ports 1-4). The router acts as a

server for dynamic host configuration

protocol (DHCP) and assigns IP addresses

in the range 192.168.123.100 through

192.168.123.199

• The default LAN IP address for the router is

192.168.123.254 with a subnet mask of

255.255.255.0

• The Internet service connected to the
router's WAN port uses a dynamic IP

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe

Why can't I access the Url http://192.168.0.30


check your IP address and see if the computer you are using is on the same subnet. your IP must be 192.168.0.xx where xx is any number. if you get a different IP address, use a static IP address between 192.168.0.31 to 192.168.0.40

how to check IP:
click Start - Control Panel - Network Connections - right click Local Area Connections - click Status - Details.

how to use static IP:
click Start - Control Panel - Network Connections - right click Local Area Connections - click Status - Properties - TCP/IP - choose Static - use any IP address in the range above.

click apply and try to access your repeater again. I am assuming that you have given the correct IP of your repeater.

Laptop can't aquire IP address


This sounds to be a compatibility issue with either the wireless software or wireless card. Check to see if there are any updated drivers for the wireless card at IBM's support site. If there aren't any or the card still doesn't work after the updated drivers are installed, then you might try a different/newer internal wireless card, or a universal external wireless card for use with your home system.
