Vista internet connection through Linksys router only partial

Internet worked til router reset. Then wouldn't work at all. Unplugged all connections, turned router on off, re-reset it, and now get partial connectivity.

During all this time two other computers, both XP, one wired, one wireless, worked fine.

Currently, CNN.com loads, NYTimes.com loads until graphics8.nytimes.com, then hangs, consumerist.com loads until cache.consumerist.com,then hangs, etc.

AVG will not update, filehippo update determines needs, can't download from fpdownload.macromedia.com (hangs.)

email identifies email to be downloaded, but will not retrieve it. I can send e-mail(!)

    Wow, I have the same issue - thought I was going nutty since the symptoms are so odd! Just started 2 days ago. Linksys WAG325N and a new Dell Studio laptop running Vista. I've tried a rebuild of the laptop, firmware upgrade to 1.00.12 for the router, factory reset the router, but no luck. Another Vista PC does same thing (can ping sites, even tracert some, but trying to browse them it won't work. An XP laptop from work plugged into the router works fine. Even weirder though is I can take the Vista laptop and router to another site and it works fine - the only difference is the location has changed (and the lead from the router to the telephone wall socket)!

Go to Network and sharing center, then network connections, right click you your network connection and choose properties. Then choose Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) Does it say "obtain ip address automatically" ? Do the same for Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).

No internet access with new Linksys wireless PCI Adapter


Don .bin is a firmware that can upload to the linksys router or any router.

So it seems that your unable to connect wirelessly using the linksys adapter? The Internet connection before is working properly?

*I might advise you to reinstall the driver of your wireless adapter using the latest driver that you can download in there support site.

- Check the Internet connection hardwired to the router if connection works it seems that problem is on the adapter.

Downloaded WUSB54GSC and cannot connect to the internet


Please try this:

Connect your PC with a cable to the router. See if you can access the router configuration with Internet Explorer (or firefox...). To do this, you have to know the IP address of the router: it is in the documentation and is by default. You can find the info on the website of Linksys. On mine, the router IP address is 192.168.0.1. I type the IP address in the address bar in Internet Explorer (http://192.168.0.1) and I reach the router login. It may look hard to do, but if you do it once, you will understand the process and be able to troubleshoot your connection in the future.

I think that your IP address is now used by another computer. Once you reach the router configuration, you will be able to reserve your IP address, so no more problem to get to Internet. See the manual for the router login and password.

Internet connection-Linksys Wireless B


Did you move the router out of range of the computer? It sounds like you put it back where it was but I just thought I'd ask.

Otherwise, use your wired connection to check the router settings. It is possible that the wireless settings defaulted due to the disconnection. You can either set the router to match your wireless computer if you can remember, or just set up a fresh wireless connection between the two.

Linksys Wireless-N pci adapter model wmp300n


If it says local or unidentified network that means you are just connected to the router on the network but not through the internet. Try to go to manage wireless network, remover your network there and add it again, connect to your own network and make sure to type the correct network key., then check again. You can also try connecting to other wireless network to further isolate the problem.
