Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless router works with some laptops
Our new wireless router works with ethernet fine and can be seen wireless by an older Lenova Laptop. My Dell work laptop does not see the router as one of connections when I do view. Also my daughters Lenova with Vista can not see the router either. Both newer laptops see other networks, but not my router. Again it works with one laptop but not two others.

If you have an internet connection using the ethernet cable but not on the wireless and there is an orange light blinking.. Try to reset the router by pressing the reset button located on the back or on the location were you can twist the stand for the router. press it for about 10secs and that will return the router on a factory settings. before u reset the router make sure to acces the configuration for the internet settings of your isp provider. if the orange light still there, try to download the latest firmware of your router on linksys site and that should fix the problem
