Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)
If I pull up my wireless networks, click on my Lynksys router, it says I'm connected but then it gives me the "cannot display webpage" for all websites. I've contacted my internet provider so I've ruled that out. I've also tried using someone else's unsecured network and I was able to use the internet with that so safe to say, it's definitley my router.
I've tried unplugging power, reseting the router...help please!
This is a common problem with the Linksys wireless router. You will need to reset your ISP device, meaning the ADSL router, or Cable modem, reset the Linksys device, and reboot your computer in that order.
Next you "should" release the IP address of your computer once it reboots to Windows (assumed). To do this you click on RUN, type in CMD to get a DOS window. From that window type in "ipconfig /release" without the quotes. Then close the window. Reboot the comptuer again.
You will NEXT need to determine which device is acting as the DHCP server, the ISP device or the Linksys device. To do this you will need to open up the CMD window again but type in "ipconfig /all" without the quotes. If your ISP device is listed first, then it is likely the server for all available IP adress on your local network. This means that the Linksys has been assigned a new IP address. The Linksys must be the DHCP server in this case so that it may be accessed through 192.168.1.1 from your browser address.
To make the Linksys the DHCP server, you must connect your ISP device to the Ethernet uplink port on the back of the Linksys router. The Linksys router may then be connected to a Ethernet hub or act as your hub if you have no other.
I hope this shines some light on the problem.

Tips for a great answer:
In order for the wireless computer to connect to the router wirelessly, the router and the computer's wireless settings should be the same. Before trying to connect your wireless adapter to a Linksys wireless router, please know the following: SSID or Network Name, Wireless Security and/or Network Key.
Connecting to Wireless Networks Using XP's Wireless Zero Configuration
