Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Why does this keep happening??? Please advise...

I have a Linksys Wireless G Router (WRT54G). I have a Comcast Cable modem that is connected to the router with an ethernet cable. I have a Dell laptop that recognizes the wireless network, but when I try to connect to the internet my browser opens but the screen is just white and the internet is not available. If I disconnect the router and run the ethernet cable straight from the Comcast Cable modem into my laptop then the internet works fine. What is the problem and how do I fix it? Thanks for your assistance.

Your modem is set to only allow one main IP address, which it assigned to your laptop.

Connect the cables through the router, then unplug first the modem, then the router.

Wait 45 seconds, then plug in router, wait 5 seconds, then plug in modem.

Give it a few seconds to talk to everything, and you should be good to go.

I have comcast cable internet. How do I set up my wireless router to work with this


Connect your router to the Cable Modem using an ethernet cable. On the back of the router, plug the cable into the port labeled "Internet" which should be the port on the far right.

Go to the admin page "192.168.1.1" - change the Internet Connection Type to Automatic Configuration - DHCP.

Linksys wrt54g SRX200. I can connect to my router


It appears the connection between the Linksys and the modem is not working.
Try a different LAN cable.
Check the LAN cable from the modem to the Linksys, it should be connected to the WAN/Internet port on the Linksys.

No more internet thru router after new modem installed


Router setup
Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the Comcast cd installed. then:
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.

Did Comcast reset you wireless router settings? If so, you may need to set up your SSID and security settings.


Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
To change the router’s SSID or the wireless network’s name, click here.
To change the router’s channel, click here.
To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

With Comcast make sure the you clone the MAC address because they use it as a authentication for your internet connection, MAC clone is done on the router setup page eventhough you're using now a DDWRT firmware and after cloning the MAC address on the router page power cycle modem and router for a minute then power on modem first next the router....
