Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

I have a wireless G linksys router not connected with laptop?

My Dell is hooked upto the router by cable and is working fine. My laptop (a Mac) has been hooked up for over a year, but now cannot find the network, as if the router is no longer transmitting wireless. How can I check to see if the network is being broadcast or reset it?

  • First, try unplugging the router and pluggin git back in. Frequently that solves the problem.
  • Second, if that doesn't work, there should be a reset button on the back of the router. Again, hit the button and wait.
  • The more advanced option it to use the web utility the route has. You should be able to access it by going to the router's IP address.
IMPORTANT: If you don't know anything about routers you can cause yourself some serious problems in the utility. Most of the settings should remain at their default setting. If in doubt...Leave it be.

  • Ok, disclaimer over. The router IP should be something like 192.168.1.1 (that's the common one used for linksys routers.) If you aren't sure, hover over the icon on the bottom right of the menu bar of your Dell and it should tell you the IP of the connection. You hould be able to access the router by taking off the last number and adding a 1 instead. (ie...your number is 555.555.5.3, you type in 555.555.5.1 into the address bar of your browser.)
  • You will have to type in a user name (linksys) and a password (admin). If you have changed the username or password, then you are a more advanced user and have probably already tried this. Either way there will be a tab in the utility for wireless information.
  • Here you can see a great deal of information about your wireless settings. You could also try using the one touch set-up option if your router hass it in the utility.

  • Lastly, make sure you have the most recent firmware (that's the software installed on the router itself.)
  • You should be able to go to the linksys website and download the newest one. The nice thing is that they give you great instructions on how to install it and get the router running again afterward.
GOOD LUCK!!

Hi! I will be more than glad to assist u in this concern..That is right! if u bypass the router it will work, the reason why the modem wont talk to the router bcoz the router is not properly setup.. if you are using a cable modem from ur cable company provider- u need to do a mac clone on the router ,u have to clone the mac address of ur dell desktop computer which works with the local cable company... normaly the mac of ur computer is the one register to your cable company and on the setup page of the router just select on the internet setup, dhcp after clonning the mac address of your computer. u need to connect ur computer directly to the router and then after doing the process connect the router to the modem.

Router not seeing internet connection


If you are on cable internet, you need to perform MAC Address Cloning. Access the router's setup page using your main PC, under SETUP tab, there's a sub-tab called MAC Address Clone. Enable that and click on "Clone My PC's MAC" then click on Save Settings. Power cycle the router and the modem. You should be online after that.

Wireless router


The problem is the Linksys wireless router is not properly configured. Try downloading the automatic configuration file which can be accessed from the Linksys site for your specific model wireless router.

Hope this helps you.

How to change Linksys wireless router?


When you get cable internet, the cable company provides you with a modem (usually). From the cable modem you can hook up the Linksys router with an ethernet cable and it will work just fine. Hook the router up to the desktop or laptop with another ethernet cable if you need to make changes to the router security or whatever. The router address is generally 192.168.1.1. YOu can type that address right into the internet address and you router page shoud show up. If you have been using the Linksys router with the phone line all you need is to connect it to the cable modem to work. An ethernet cable is like a telephone line with a fatter connecter.
