You have to run Win2K or better to get the card to work properly.

Hi, assuming you are running WinXP, you might want to try: 1) right click on your wireless networking icon and click repair; or 2) double click on the same icon; click on properties, scroll down to/click TCP/IP to highlight, click on properties - Tick Obtain an IP address automatically if your access point is also acting as DHCP server; or 3) get IP add + others from your Network Admin and entered numbers given; or 4) self-assign IP numbers that are pretty near your Access Point (AP) IP #s, maybe something like 192.168.1.3 where your AP is 192.168.1.1, subnet mask should be the same as your AP (normally 255.255.255.0 but may be different) and your default gateway normally would be the IP Add of your AP (192.168.1.1 or whatever the AP is using) DNS could be obtained from your ISP or tick obtain automatically. Caution here that the IP number you select should not be currently in use in your network. 5) Open IE, go to tools/internet option/connection, remove any dial-up if no longer needed and check never dial a connection (assuming you don’t use a modem and would connect normally via wireless. Go to/Click LAN settings, check auto detect settings, make sure Proxy server is uncheck. 6) Ping any website from your command prompt to see if you get a response If all else fail, pls post your AP hardware (brand/model), OS. It might also be a good idea to check if your AP is connected to an ISP with an active account and that your modem is working ok. Please let me know if this works out ok for you. Cheers.

    Hi Darth, yes a modem has to be connected to the Access Point for you to be able to access the Internet. Without a modem, you can connect to the AP but you won't be able to access the Internet. Cheers

SOURCE: connected to acess point but internet

The first thing you should try is connecting one machine via a cable to the router, to see if the connection is stable. This will prove the router is working, or not, as the case may be. Assuming the router still fails to function properly, you can then replace it.

However this assumes that the modem and internet connection are working properly. If either is causing the problems, then the router might be just fine.

But if the router does appear to work fine when wired in, then it at least proves everything outside the router is fine. And while it is possible, it is rather unlikely that just the wireless part of the router failed without killing the switch/router part.

So try this, and once we have the result, we can take the next step

Often the flashing lihts of router go off and reappear again, but this causes problem in internet acess. What to do?


Is there a issue with the power jack being pulled? Try to replicate the problem by "wiggling" the power cord at the the AC jack in the rear of the Linksys. I have found this to be a issue if the cord and "brick" are hanging free, it pulls on the AC jack breaking the connector.

I don't know how to reinstall the linksys access point!!! Our wireless network that we made simply disappeared, so I'm trying to re-make one. However, when I tried that with a flash drive, it couldn't work...


T
o access the Access Points Setup, and the LAN IP address has not changed, then computer must have an IP address of 192.168.1.XXX. If the Access Point is plugged in via Ethernet to a Linksys Router and the computer is also connected a Linksys router via Ethernet, then the PC should already have a correct IP address (unless the LAN IP Address of the Router has been changed). If unsure, please assign the computer a Static IP Address so it will have an IP address in the same range as the Access Points IP Address.

If the Access Point is being connected to a hub/switch/router via Ethernet, then use the cable that was provided with Access Point. If the Access Point is being connected to the computer directly, then a Cross Over cable must be used. Cross over cables can be purchased at most electronic stores.
    Remember: When ever a change is made in the Setup of the Access Point, the Apply button must be used to save the settings to the Access Point.
  1. Open a web browser (such as Internet Explorer or Netscape)
  2. When the browser opens, go to the "Address" bar and input the IP address of the Access Point.
      Default IP addresses:
    • WAP11 v2.8 - 192.168.1.251
    • WAP54G v1.1 - 192.168.1.245
  3. A "User Name" and "Password" prompt will appear, leave the "User Name" field blank and input the Access Points password (The default password of a Linksys Access Point is admin) into the "Password" field.

I can not access the linksys access point, the 192.168.1.245 does not link.


the default address is 192.168.1.1. if you still can't access you can factory default by pressing and holding the reset button on the back for about 10 seconds. after it restarts the ip address will be 192.168.1.1 leave the username blank and the password will be admin.

Try the instructions at this Tips page to reset the router to factory defaults. Once that's done, you should be able to connect to it on the wired LAN by pointing a browser to http://192.16.1.245/

I've also written a tips page about the default address, username and password for this access point.

Linksys WAP54g v3.1.Can't connect more than 1 computer wirelessly


That is normal for you not to be able to get online at the same time, you are using a Wireless access point, you access point does not have a dhcp server to share the internet on both laptops. What you should have put in there is a wireless router, for Linksys the model of a wireless router will be WRT54G or any model as long as it's a router.

WIRELESS CONNECTION FINDS NO ACCESS POINT.HAVE LINKS NOTEBOOK ADAPTER WORELESS 3. CONNECTIVITY IS NOT CONSISTENT.


If you mean the encription key, which technically is not a password, you may get it acessing to the router page with Internet Explorer. You will need your router's IP and a wired connection.

hope it helps

Often the nets and subnets are NOT the same.. ie The Fixed connection often uses 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, however sometimes the wifi is setup 10.1.1.1, or 10.0.0.1 etc, have you checked this?
