Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
My desktop is connected to the internet. My laptop won't connect although it says that the wireless network is connect and shows an excellent strength
I had a similar problem when I got my laptop. What I did was type 192.168.2.1 (yours might be different because we have a wifi router plugged into a normal router, so try 192.168.0.1 otherwise) into the internet URL address box. This takes me to the Wireless Router's domain page. I then click on 'Wireless' and then it asks me for a password, which I leave blank because I never set one up, and now I am in the Wireless settings menu. I then click 'Use as Access Point' and then 'Enable'. Then I close the browser.
I then check my Wireless connections on the laptop and can see the router there in the list. I double click this and also make sure the 'Automatically connect to this network' is enabled. I wait a few seconds for it to detect and connect.. "Local and Internet Access"!
I open the internet browser and I am on my Google homepage.
Your settings will be slightly different, but essentially the same.
