Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

Router compatibiilty (This is a follow-up to a previous question.) Are all computers compatible with both "G" and "N" routers? I own a 2-year-old iMac and I somehow got the idea it might not be compatible with an "N" router like the Linksys. Is that an issue?

It may not be an problem if your router if backwards compatible. Most wireless N routers work with B, and G Wireless adapters, but to be on the safe side, you should check your manual to see if it is compatible.

II have been trying to connect wirelessly my new HP lap top to an old series 600 but the computer can't connect even after entering the key. It works ok on cable.can any one help


1. your issue is due to a a wireless laptop is not compatible with the old router or
you may need a firmware upgrade.
2. the cold compute may be able to connect via a cord (Ethernet) but not wirelessly due to an outdated driver for the network card ( the card will need updated drivers also) if it is a wireless b card then the ability to us a WAP key will not be possible
because your card was designed to use WEP key.
3. a new wireless G card installed to the old PC will allow connectivity if the wireless card is backwards compatible.
4. most all PC's can connect via a Ethernet cord they are all designed that way and have not changed for the 20 or 30 years they have been in use.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

Having to reboot router at least once a week


Hi, First of All I would like to inform you about the Ideal Broad band Setup. An ideal BB Setup should be in the Following Way :-
Master socket (main telephone socket) << Filter << Router << Computer.
There should not be any other things connected in between. you can connect it to the secondary or extension socket as well but it depends. sometime you may face problem with it.
As you told that you have a Hub connected to the Router If there are multiple Ethernet ports on Router there is no use of it at all but if there is only 1 port then you can connect Hub after router.
Try this and I m sure you will not face any difficulties in future.
One more Advice for you If you face any Difficulty like yesterday Internet was working fine but today its not or similar ..... Just do this ........... Switch OFF your Router. wait for 40 sec. Switch ON your Router n Wait till you get All the lights Solid Green on the Router (not Flashing apart from Ethernet Light) Try Connecting to Internet in most of the cases it Works :)
