Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

2 Answers

My DSL Connection 1mb connection using a white colored Shiro ADSL Model My Wireless Router TP-Link TL-WR641G/TL-WR642G Problem Normally my internet works fine. Today I bought this router and connected it according to the instructions given in the guide. I connected one end of the LAN wire to the WAN port on the Wireless Router and the other end to the ADSL Modem. Secondly connected one end of another LAN wire to the LAN Card on my PC and other end in one of the LAN ports on the wireless router. In short all done according to the instructions in the instruction guide. Now I entered 192.168.1.1 in the internet explorer and again followed all the instructions given in the guide but even after that internet does not works. I even selected other options (there were three PPPoE, Dynamic IP and Static IP). Choose all three(except Static IP where it asks me for IP address and Subnet Mask which I dont know). Entered correct username and password under PPPoE but still no luck. What am I doing wrong and what is the solution? I am sure most of you must be thinking that I should get my IP address and Subnet mask from my ISP and enter it under the 'Static IP' choice but when I am not using the router, my settings are to detect IP address and other stuff automatically i.e. I have not assigned any predefined IPs/Subnets etc

You dont need to enter any ip adress just slect the auto detect ip.then conect you adsl modem with lan cable to wireless router.but it would be better if you use a switch between adsl modem and wireless router.

Look for MAC Address Clone setting on the router's Setup Page. Just enable that and power cycle the router and modem

I want to connect to BT broadband using my TP-Link TD-WD8901G routerg


Sounds like you need to change the TP link router for a wireless Access Point or a range extender.
Who knows what goofing around BT does with their equipment.

TL-WR641G/TL-WR642G parental lock


This router doesn't support parental controls, however it does have domain filtering which lets you block specific domains. To log into your router.
  • Open a command prompt.
  • Start, type CMD and press enter
  • Type ipconfig
  • Note the "Default Gateway", this is your routers address.
  • Type this address into a web browser address bar. (Ex: 192.168.0.1)
  • Log into your router, enter any username and/or password.
  • If you never configured one and it asks its probably one of the following. (admin/admin, admin/password) You can also google your model + default login and you should find it's default)
  • Once logged in go to the security > domain filter


Here is the routers user guide if you need more info. Feel free to comment back if you need further help.

TP-Link TL-WR642G recovery after failure upgrade to latest firmware


may find this page helpful. http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php...om_a_Bad_Fl ash Its not for the TP-Link router but the same principle could be applied to you with the correct firmware. Its worked for me on more than a few occasions. Providing you can ping the router via a lan cable then the chances of recovering it are very high.

Help please! TP-Link Wireless Router TL-WR641G stopped working


It looks like all your devices by themselves are working fine.
Good start.
If you took the router out of your office I assume that the settings from the office and your home are different, which causes the setup not to work properly.

First of all you should find out which hardware version of the router you have and download the manual from here, so you have the information at hand when you're not online.

Then you want to rest the router to factory settings, so you start clean. In order to do so, use the Factory Default Reset button: First, turn off the router's power. Second, press and hold the default reset button then turn on the router's power, until the SYS LED lights up (about 3 seconds). Last, release the reset button and wait for the router to reboot.

Follow the instructions in the manual form page 8 on onwards with a special view on setting up PPPoE. Have your information form your DSL provider handy (Account name and password).
The default webpage for the router interface is http://192.168.1.1
Username and password are both "admin".

Do not enable any wireless security until everything is working fine.

Make sure later to change the password to something else, so no one can "take over" your router.

If this solution did not help, please don't rate it as "Thanks for trying" or so, but leave a comment instead and I will check back and we can work form there.

Good luck!
