Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
Once the installation CD instructs me to plug in the power cord and I plug up the installation hangs up with a message that my router connection doesn't seem to be connected properly.
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed.
Connect the Cat5 cable from the modem to the WAN port on the router. Then connect a Cat5 cable from any port on the router to your PC's network port.
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
