Linksys WMB54G: No Connection Via the Software Utility

I can connect perfectly via both of my home computers wirelessly to the WMB54G at 192.168.1.1.121 using my browser (IE 7) but no matter what I try, I cannot get the Linksys WMB software to detect/recognize the WMB. Only when I connect the WMB via one of the ports on my WRT54GS via cable and run the utility does the software detect the WMB. I've tried reloading software, upgrading to the latest firmware, rebooting, adding IPs to my AV firwall, diabling wireless security, etc.. Nothing seems to work after I installed XP SP2 and a newer version of Norton AV. I've been at this for over a month! Anyone have any ideas? Thank you in advance!
Sincerely,
-Dave

    Sorry...my typing skills coupled with my terrible proof reading -- indeed, I intended to say that I have and continue to successfully connect via IE 7 on 192.168.1.1 but no luck connecting via the Linksys WMB Utility after the setup procedure.

    I am trying to connect to the WMB56G on a Vista machine and it doens't see the device. I worked with tech support and they had me send my device in on an RFA, but the replacement does exactly the same thing. From reading on the web, seems this is a common problem. Installed as Admin and in XP compatible mode. Still no connection with the utility. HELP

The problem is that might be the 121. I would try using the hightest IP address your router will allow. Mine was 192.168.1.190 chance of a conflict less likely. I would also try pinging the bridge's address from using the dos box and typing in ping 192.168.1.121 if the bridge doesn't respond it is no longer working. The ping can be done when connected to the ethernet port or wirelessly. If the ping fails most likely the bridged is fried in that case phone linksys tech support the will try to set it up if they are unsuccessufl they will give you a case number after the have determined it is not functioning. Make sure the tech get the case number from the supervisor. Then you go to the Linsys wmb54g page and click on the request for an RMA and follow the instructions. If you if is still under 3years you will get a replacement. That is why you always regester your product with linksys. If you haven't I suggest you do that then phone tech support and go through the grueling steps to get an RMA (return merchandise authorization). Pain but better that than a $90 doorstop.

You stated that you have the latest firmware installed, you must also load and use the latest software to be compatible with the new firmware. The Linksys site has both of these downloads. Be sure to remove all the old software before the new load. If you are still having problems read through the tutorial on this site. Hope this helps

It appears the configuraion IP address you are using is wrong it should be 192.168.1.100 or 192.168.1.1

I have the wireless -G music bridge (model WMB54G) - I had forgotten the password so I reset it - Now, my computer will not recognize it - any suggestions?


The Linksys Wireless-G Music Bridge (WMB54G) has a web-based setup page that allows the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties.
Step 1:
Open a web browser.

Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP Address, then press [Enter].

NOTE: The default IP Address of a WMB54G is 192.168.1.210.


NOTE: If the IP address of the WMB54G has been changed, type the WMB54G's new IP address in the Address bar instead.

The WMB54G's IP address can be changed by:

    • Running the WMB54G's setup CD.

    • Changing it on the WMB54G's web-based setup page.

If you forgot the WMB54G's IP address you can:

  • Press the Reset button underneath the antenna for 30 seconds.

NOTE: This procedure will reset the WMB54G to factory defaults. Any settings on the Music Bridge will be erased. The Music Bridge's IP address will be 192.168.1.210and the password will be "admin" after resetting.





Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank, type "admin" in the Password field, then click OK.

NOTE: If the password of the WMB54G has been changed, type the Music Bridge's new password in the Password field instead.

You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1

If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router.
Clickon wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It isyour password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

The linksys utility always sends signal to PC speakers, even when wmb54g unit shows connected. The wmb54g and router are up-to-date and run WEP 128 security encoding. The wmb54g flashes faster when...


I can disable the sound card, set the music bridge as the default sound output device and it works just fine (after rebooting). But if I enable the sound card again, even when keeping the music bridge as the default, the sound goes exclusively to the PC speakers, no matter what device the connection is switched to on the Linksys utility. (By the way the music bridge shows correctly to be connected or disconnected....with no effect on the sound output.) The major hassle is that any usable change of output device requires a reboot. Still testing. Not a single answer from the community. Also I never required the promised temporary password.

Connect befw11S4 with wmb54g


You dont need to open ports on the router. Just configure the music bridge with the same wireless settings as your router so that it will work.

Siemens 4200 2 computers


Yes and No! The 4200 gives you the option to connect via USB or Ethernet. You can only use one or the other to connect. You have two options. The first DOES involve another "gadget". The second does not!

Solution #1

I realize you're not looking to use additional equipment, but a network hub, switch or router will give you what you need. You can pick up a very inexpensive router for under $50 or even better a wireless router for a few bucks more.

I recommend a Linksys Wireless Router (Model - WRT54G) as it is very user friendly and comes ready to use. Just connect the port labeled "Ethernet" to the "WAN" port of the Linksys Wireless Router. Then connect both of your computers to any of the four "LAN" ports.

Solution #2

You can connect the first computer directly to the 4200 via USB and connect the second computer directly to the first computers ethernet port using a Network Crossover cable. Without a router of hub between the two computers, a crossover cable is required to allow them to talk to each other.

Once you have them connected to each other, on the first computer open the network connection properties for your internet connection (will be the one setup during the install of the USB modem) and click "Share This Computers Internet Connection".

Now the first option is surely the most reliable and keeps the traffic separate.

Hope this help!
