Sometimes, you might face a situation where your wireless icon shows that you are connected to the Internet but you just can't access any websites. What do you do when you face this problem?

This article will show you how you can repair Internet connection when wireless icon shows connected, but unable to go online.

To connect to your wireless network with Wireless Zero Configuration, please click here.


In checking if you're computer is properly connected to the Linksys Router, you will need to perform four steps:
i. Checking the Physical Connection to the Router
ii. Checking the LEDs
iii. Checking the IP Address of the PC
iv. Pinging the Router
NOTE: To check the computer's connection to the router using Mac, click here. If you are using Windows Vista, click here. For Windows 7 users, learn more here. For Windows 7 users, learn more here.
Checking the Physical Connection to the Router

Make sure that the computer is connected to one of the four Ethernet ports of the router and the modem should be connected to the Internet port. For more instructions, click here.
Checking the LEDs

The Linksys router's LED lights will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem and the computer to the router, make sure that the LED lights are lit up. For more instructions, click here.
Checking the IP Address of the PC

The IP address of the computer is another indication that the computer is properly connected to the router. For instructions, click here.
Pinging the Router

Ping test helps trace the communication between the computer and the router. The computer sends packets to the router and in return the router sends out replies to validate the connection. In this example, our router IP address is "192.168.1.1."

Secondary computer will not connect wirelessly; IP address problems.


If the router is not assigning an IP then you are probably not actually connecting to the network. Try disabling your wireless security on the router and see if they connect. If they do then you know the problem lies in that direction.

Linksys Wireless-G not connecting to internet


Make sure you are plugging the SMC into the WAN port on the Linksys router and not the LAN ports.  Your internet connection (which is your SMC) should always plug into your WAN port on the Linksys.  Any computers that you may need to plug in, like Desktops that are "wired" and not "wireless", should plug into the LAN ports on the Linksys.  If you are not using the WAN port on the Linksys for your SMC modem, then that would explain why you cannot get to the internet on wireless or wired computers.
Here's why you are getting the "low connectivity" message:

Computers don't understand why the Internet is connecting or not connecting...so the "low connectivity" message you keep receiving has nothing to do with your wireless signal strength.   To a computer NIC, "low connectivity" means your network adapter could not find a DHCP server and receive a valid IP address.  When this happens, your network adapter assigns an IP address to your computer in the following range...169.254.0.0, and will display the "low connectivity" message until it is able to receive a valid private IP address from the DHCP server.  You can verify this by going to START | RUN and typing "cmd" (without the quotes), then hit ENTER.  A black box will pop up....then type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER.  This will show you your IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address, and you can verify that your IP address is in the 169.254.0.0 range.  A valid private IP address is typically in the 192.168.0.0 range, but could also be in the 10.0.0.0 range, or the 172.16.31.0 range.    Also, make sure you have DHCP server enabled on the Linksys router for the LAN.  This will ensure your "wired" and "wireless" computers receive a valid IP address.  
The WAN port on your Linksys router should be configured to "Obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP".

Cheers!

Linksys wireless connected to router, signal fine, no web pages


First thing i would try is power cycling your equipment. Unplug the router and the Modem-
Plug the modem in first and once all the lights come on- plug in your router- then restart your computer.

Wireless shows connection,but will not connect.


This kind of problem occur due to dhcp disable in the wireless router for the security purpose. So try to give the ip adress manually by right clicking on the wireless and give the ip adress of the same range in which your network in working e.g 192.168.1.0 is the range of your ip addresses so please select the ip which is not been used by any other computer and than in default gateway enter the ip address of you wireless router and you will be able to access the internet on your system.

Wii connection issues.


You can check if the problem is with the internet connection going to the Wii or just the wireless connection.

When you loose connection, check the Wii's ip address. If it does not have an ip address(or ip is 169.xx.xx.xx) that means that the Wii is disconnecting from the wireless network. You can then try other wireless channels on your router.

If the Wii is still getting an ip of 192.168.x.x, that means that the problem is the internet from the router. You might need to forward ports on the router for your Wii.

Router issues


Hi Pzarek,

The first thing that comes to mind is that your Linksys modem is using the same IP address as the router and it's causing a conflict. The quickest way to find out if there is a conflict is to get into the administration setup on the router and manually change the IP address of the router itself (currently it's most likely 192.168.1.1 - change it to 192.168.1.250). Linksys has most of its devices that provide dynamic IPs set to 192.168.1.1 by default so I would suggest that.

To log into the router (assuming you have your computer plugged into the router):

Bring up Internet Explorer and type in 192.168.1.1 into the address bar.

When it asks for a username/password, type in 'admin' for the username and 'admin' for the password (without the quotes).

You can change the IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.250 on the first page that comes up.

If you're unable to access the setup, make sure the router is powered up and hold in the Reset button on the back for 30 full seconds. At that point the information provided will allow you to access it.
