Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Pinging most LinkSys WRT54G would require to open a command prompt in the PC, type "ping 192.168.1.1" less the quotes and await reply from the router.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Dont have internet connection on my laptop


First change your LAN ip range on WRT54g, leave the wan interface as dynamic IP client. Connect your WAN port to the DSL router interface. ping your DSL router interface (most probably your DSL router will be having 192.168.1.1). Make sure that your laptop is not assigned with any static IP (Incase you use the laptop in home n work).

My WRT54G linksys was connected 3 days ago to the laptop and the ps3. two days ago, i couldnt connect to the internet on the ps3, but could on the laptop. Yesterday, i couldn't connect on either one. I've...


First steps (forgive me if you are already doing this). Hook up the laptop with cat5 network cable to port on router to verify you have internet connectvity. Verify router settings that DHCP is on or off. It should be on unless u are using static IP's on network. Go back wireless and see if you can connect. IF yo do, open a DOS prompt and use ping command (c:>ping 192.168.x.x ) where x.x are the ip setting of router. In most cases the router IP will be set to 192.168.1.1 Check the most basic settings. Sometimes it is a simple thing that is throwing everything off. Also consider if your laptop is at the very edge of your signal area. Try moving laptop right next to router.

Hope this helps.

Lost connection to internet after 2 days


I ran into the same problem when i was living in Reno.
I fixed my problem by First, Access Command Prompt, by way of Run Program: CMD
then i inputed the command ipconfig /all
Find the wireless portion in the information that it gives you, what you are looking for is the Mac Address. it should be 12 total Alpha Numeric string, which is seperated every 2 by a dash marker.

Next, access the router through the normal way of browser, In the Wireless section, there is a tab that you select to input the Mac Address into the router, to basically give the router a permission to always give that computer access to the internet. This worked for me. I do hope it works for you. Its what i have always done in the past when i set up wireless Offices

Desktop won't connect with printer connected to laptop


Make sure both computers can share files and can ping each other, if not, it's just a firewall issue. Try to disable your firewall first.

My laptop won't work wireless


Use windows network setup wizard to help in setting up your wireless. The wizard can search for your wireless. Some people believe you gan get away without using Linksys's software & I agree to a point. However Linksys believes to maintain a good connection you should install the software for the wireless router. You can download it from the link below. Check out the link "Learning Center". You might find it helpful. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_CASupport_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1166859837401&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=3740137401B343
I suggest to all running a wireless connection to set up security with a password to keep freeloaders from tapping into your bandwith for free.
Luck!
