Trouble with Linksys Wireless Router

A few weeks ago, our old router gave out, so we bought a new one. Our computer guy came out and hooked it up and left because it appeared to have successfully worked, connection our two computers. The internet said 'connected' at first, but shortly, it read 'not connected' with the red "x" and everything. It was still reading full "excellent" signal from the network, but was still "not connected". If I hit 'repair' it would run though, then say it was unable to repair. However, while it still read that my internet was "not connected", it would actually work just fine as if it was connected properly. It works for about 20 minutes until a notice pops up saying "unable to connect to wireless network". I can use the internet so long as I constantly repair the connection when, all the while, I'm still "not connected" I'm not sure why its doing this or how to fix it so I can have constant internet access without this pain. I've tried several things, such as trying different usb ports, checking my network password, etc. I'm not sure if the problem is with the modem and router hook up on the main computer, or if its on the receiving end with this computer. Any suggestions would be excellent!

Try unplugging both the modem and the router. count to 15 then plug back in and try.
Keep in mind also that some routers dont connect 100% till you open a browser, weird but I have had similar problems.
It sounds like you may have problems at both ends.
Several things come to my mind;
make sure you shut down ALL programs in the background.

you are trying to problem solve by elimination, so close anything that may connect to the internet and take away that variable.

scan for spyware etc.

do a registry clean, temp files cleanup etc.

sometimes restarting the pc can help
good luck

The only computer I have is a Dell Insprion E1505 laptop and it is connected to a "COMCAST" cable modem. Windows XP, not Vista is installed. I purchased a LINKSYS WRT54G wireless router. I installed the setup disk and connected the modem to the router, and the router to the computer as step one, but when step two had me disconnect the router from the laptop so it could connect via wireless network, it just says "easylink advisor could not establish a wireless connection with the router
two laptops, a desktop PC and my son has Xbox live. I recently bought the Linksys wireless-g router with speed boost and that didn't work. If any of the laptops were on, the other wouldn't work and my son's Xbox live would lag. I was thinking about exchanging it for the Linsys wireless-N broadband router but then I read the reviews and they were horrible. I need something of that sort but something that isn't known for being unreliable and dying.
I bought the Turtle Beach X41 Headset, and it is causing some problems with my wireless connection. Due to a number of reasons, it is not possible to directly hook up my 360 to my modem. So, if I bought a new router that can operate on a 802.11a frequency, would that help or not? My current router is a Linksys Wireless G, 2.4GHz, router. Microsoft has said that an 802.11a frequency router could fix problems with other wireless electronics. If it would help, which router should I buy? I've read a few reviews for the Linksys WGA54AG 802.11a, and everyone says it doesn't work good. Any suggestions on another brand

I dont know how to change the SSID Name and WEP Key.


You have to change it in the printer settings, not in the router! Otherwise you'll lose connectivity in all the other computers that use this router.
The SSID is the name you gave to your wireless network, and the WEP key is the password you set for your wireless connection.

Router not connecting to internet modem


This is a tuff router.  I bought it myself hoping for good things, and spent a good two days actually getting the thing to work.

I got mine to work by plugging it into the modem, the laptop I was setting it up with, etc, and then running it all. I would just suggest trying to reinstall it again with everything plugged in from the get go, and then hope for the best.... sorry I cant help more.

I can't get my new Vista computer to connect to my wireless network


I experienced a similar problem with a Vista laptop a few weeks ago. There were no apparent problems, so I uninstalled the wireless network adapter from the Windows "device manager" and then let it automatically reinstall the wireless adapter when it rebooted. The local wireless network appeared about 5 minutes after the reboot and has been working ever since.

If that doesn't help, try removing the Linksys software from your computer and try the network adapter remove/reinstall again.
