Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GR Router

2 Answers

Problem connecting to the net

I can connect my computer wired straight to the modem. But when i try to connect it straight to the router (lynksis wrt54gr), it doesn't recognize the router even thought we already connected another two computers previously to the same router (one wireless and one wired). Hw can i make the computer recognize this router>? We already give it all the ip addresses etc from the original but still doesn't recognize the router for some reason.

Make sure your computer has a dynamic IP address. If the computer still cant get IP address from router, try to reset the router. Press and hold the reset button of the router for 30 seconds while the power is on. After that please check if your computer is getting a valid IP address from router (192.168.1.xx). If your are able to get valid IP address, try this link to configure for your Internet connection.

You router may be set to be DHCP enabled so that it allocates the ip addresses automatically to each pc, so check that the pc's network card with connection problems is set in the properties on the TCP/IP line is set to obtain an ip address automatically. You can also try, Start>run then type ipconfig /flushdns to clear the pc ip address and dns. and restart pc. Lastly if you pc is both network cabled and wireless, ensure one or the other is dissabled as this can confuse the ip adress alocation.

A lot of problem WRT54GR with DHCP, gmail, hotmail, google earth, deezer.com ...


Try settings up the MTU to manual.

1500/1400/1300 for cable connection.
1492 for DSL. if this may not work then yes, you need to upgrade the firmware.

Linksys WRT54GR-UK Connection Problems


Try changing the default ip address of the router to 192.168.2.1. Sometimes the ISP's modem is set at 192.168.1.1 which will conflict with a router using the same IP.

Lynksys is causing high blood pressure


Hello cyndilynn

OK, my friend, don't fret. Let's find out what the skinny is. First things first...

(01) Do you have the manual for your router?
If not, you can download it from HERE.

(02) Do I understand you correctly that you are able to connect to the Internet from one of your computers and not the other WHILE using the Linksys BEFSR41 router?

Some points to clarify:
(A) Your Linksys router (connected between your cable or DSL modem and your computer(s)) and your Linksys NIC (installed in your computer) are two different animals that serve different purposes.

(B) Your router should be connected to each of your computers via "straight through" (not "cross-over") Ethernet patch cables that run from the LAN ports at the back of your router to a NIC connection on each of your computers.

(C) The NIC and the ROUTER do not have to be made by the same manufacturer (in this case Linksys). Manufacturer's NICs and ROUTERs can be mixed and matched just fine.

I suspect the issue is w/ detection of your NIC on one of your computers. I doubt the issue has anything to do w/ your router.

If that is the case, please, provide details about the two desktop computers that you have tried the Linksys NIC in (one successfully, one unsuccessfully).

(03) What operating system is each computer running?

(04) Has the computer that you have been unsuccessfull connecting to the Internet through the Linksys router ever been successfully connected to the Internet?

For now, please, answer these 4 questions and provide any other information you can think of (the more details the better). Then we'll move on to the next step.

Thank you
BJ
