    I too have the WRT300n router, but am trying to use a Belkin Wireless N USB adapter on the remote desktop computer. The monitor says it sees the router, but there is no connection to the internet. Two other wired computers to the same router are working just fine. I have gone through all the security steps (WEP 128), unplugged and replugged the router and the cable modem, and still cannot see the internet.

    Do you have any kind of network security enabled?

    When you say "can see my router", do you mean it connects to the router (DHCP or static IP, etc)?

    What is the result if you run cmd.exe with "ipconfig /all"?

WRT300N wont connect wireless


Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the Linksys router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
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.
NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router’s firmware. For instructions, click here

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

WRT300N dosnt connect


if your connection (isp) is CABLE you will need to clone the mac of the main computer.

For cable connection verify what computer can go online with your modem, once you know the main pc connect it to port one, access the routers setup page by typing 192.169.1.1 then locate MAC ADDRESS CLONE in line with basic setup. enable it click the macclone button then save settings.
connect your modem to the internet port on the router, do a power cycle on the modem and router.
then check the status tab on the linksys setup page if you have numbers on the dns it should be online.

No internet signal from router


To isolate the concern, it would be better to test the non working computer to the modem. If it works, that means there is a problem with the router and if it isn't then it is a problem with the pc..

If the computer works fine on the modem, you can try the following to check if the router works fine:

1. The modem should be connected to the router's WAN/Internet port.
2. The computers should be hard wired to the router's numbered port
3. On the router's setup page, go to the Status tab and check if the Internet IP address and the DNS are populated. If not, that means the router is not functioning correctly.
4. Go to the wireless tab and make sure that the SSID is customized. Make sure that the wireless computer is connecting to the said SSID.

If those had been checked and it still does not work, you can try updating the firmware of the router, reset and reconfigure it.

However, if the computer does not work on the modem. You may need to have it checked.

Not Connecting On Wireless


make sure your modem is connected to the INTERNET PORT of the WRT300N. wired pc must have an ip address of 192.168.1.x so we can say that the internet is really coming from the wrt300n

1 Answer

No internet through ports


Try hooking up the PC through the router, then unplugging the modem and plug it back in. Once that is up, do the same to the router and try it again.

Oftentimes if you're limited to one IP address, it will be assigned to your PC, and your router will be unable to get one. Resetting the modem frees the IP address and allows the router to get it.
