Linksys router vs. hp computer

I have three desk tops and two lap tops. The desk tops are hard wired to a linksys the lap tops are wireless bouncing off the router. They all connected fine until I got a new computer and hooked in the router to the new computer, now the signal drops and none can connect or keep connection without resetting the router every 2o minutes or so. we also get network conflict messages, what do I do?

    This is going to sound really dumb because I am not all that tech smart. I have no idea what a DHCP is... my cable came out and installed the router to their modem box and one computer, and I had a belkin wireless for the other computer but as signal kept dropping they told me hard wire my computer into the router ( I did that, but kept dropping and losing conection) and then we got a new main computer (the one where the modem and roter sit) The cable guy came out and moved the wires, hooked it up and ever since the signal drops even more so that we have to un plug the router to get everything working again. Except we just a PS3 for xmas and it bounces of the wireless signal (not hooked in) and when it is on we get the conflict error the computers and it crashes everything. I don't know if this is a cable problem or router problem or who to call, what to look for or how to fix it?

    Is your router configured as DHCP server and *all* the computers and laptops (especially the new one) configured to get IP address from the server?

    If the new computer is using a static IP address and it is within the range allocated by the DHCP server, the server could give the same IP address to another computer and you will get the conflict messages.

    I suppose your new computer might have a bad network card ...

First of all u should ensure that DHCP server is configured for your required number of computers. this problem seems that you have less clients configured in your DHCP server, existing in router configuration.

Will setting up a wireless laptop on Linksys WRT54g router mess with 3 computer ethernet wired connections ? I want to set my lap top to WPA2. Right now it's at WEP:(


it all depends on the win version you have.
Please go here (http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54G) and hopefully it will have the answer you are looking for.
Obviously you know how to set up your router, since you already have three computers hooked up.

I have many wireless/wired pc's and wireless/wired mac's on the same router, with no problem at all.


Many routers can handle upwards of 30-40 connections without a problem and high quality ones can handle 254 (that's the max for a class C subnet).

Good luck

My WRT54GC router suddenly stop passing internet through it after 4 years of uninteruped service. But all the LED s are on as they should be. I can not get either wired (my desk top) or wireless (lap top)...


Has your modem been hard reset recently? if so, it may require that you bridge the modem out to work with the router- ESP. if you use Verizon DSL. If so, contact your ISP, and ask for assistance in bridging out the modem.

I have a desk top couputer and a lap top. the lap top crashed and since then I can,t get on the internet. the Linksys router as for a pass key to get on the internet and I forgot what this is. How do I...


First of all you need to connect to your router using a LAN connection (wireless won't work as you might not be connected wirelessly due to the missing WEP key) and follow the steps below:

1.) using the internet explorer (not AOl or MSN or..)but the internet explorer that your computer came with.
2.) enter "192.168.1.1" in the website address field. do NOT use www in front.
3.) this will bring you to a linksys website. You might need to login (default username and password is admin)
4.) click on wireless
5.) then wireless security
6.) then you will see the page with the wep key listed.
7.) use the first wep key listed.

In case nothing helps, you will need to hard reset your router which would erase all the settings and configuration and bring the router back to factory settings. You may refer to the manual to perform the hard reset, in case you have lost the manual leave a comment and we shall provide you the next steps.

Linksys rouder suddenly stoped alowing other computers net access


I would recommend upgrading the router firmware, if you have not done this already.

Download the firmware file from the Linksys website:
http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/

Typically, the upgrade is done by pointing your web browser at the IP address of the Linksys router. Linksys should provide specific instructions at the site above.

Although cable to desktop connects to internet, my router from desktop to laptop via router won't connect.


Desk top to internet is OK.
How about Destop through Router connection to Internet OK?
Assuming you want to connect wireless from Lap top to Network, need to configure correctly for wireless in Router.
If you connect Lap top to router by wire and it didn't work that mean your router is bad.

Wireless - G router


If the Linksys is not yet configured use the desktop to put the CD in and follow instructions to add the Linksys Router to your existing network setup.

Once inside there are a few more steps to getting a desktop PC to see & network with a laptop PC within a router/wireless environment. Once the Linksys is setup you may want to repost something to get the computers talking to each other.

Take care...
