Limited connectivity
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and then click Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.
Also try resetting the wireless router by turning off the power to the wireless router for a few minutes and the boot up your computers.

SOURCE: Cannot connect to wireless network

I agree with JonwVBFL, it sounds like the DHCP server is not enabled on the router. You can enable this using the administrative web interface on the router (http://192.168.1.1). The default username is admin with a blank password or vice versa.

SOURCE: Linksys WRT54G can't connect 3rd wireless computer

log into the WRT54G wireless router and ensure that you do not have it set up for only handing out 4 IP addresses also check the laptop to see if it is set to have a DHCP or static IP address, if it has a static IP and your network is dynamic then this is why it wont connect.

if this resolves your issue and you are happy with the answer please grade me accordingly.

thanks

Unable to stream novie sites with my linksys wireless-g router


Check the connection (signal) strength of your wireless connection in the status area of the task bar in Windows. Also, hovering the mouse over the wireless connection should reveal the connection speed. 54mbps is the highest you can expect on a wireless connection, which is generally OK for streaming video..Any less of a signal strength/connect speed will likely not be adequate for streaming video.

A poor signal strength is usually because of too much distance or too many walls between the router and the computer.

Hope that's helpful.

Low signal strength


Having many users connected to a single WAP (wireless access point) will not affect the signal strength. It will however, affect the speeds each user is capable of.

Most Linksys routers have a homepage address of 192.168.1.1 - Enter this in your web browser.

From there you will be able to find wireless settings and enable either a password or a WEP key for security.

If you disconnect the router , you are able to go online. Go to the Linksys web site. www.linksys.com/download and download the Firmware of the router.
You will need to select the correct model number and the version number of the router.
The model n umber and Version number will be on the back side of the router. You will see model number in small letters like WRT54G and just after that you will see V 5 or V6 or V8. this number will be the version number.
Download the file on the computer.
connect the computer and the modem to the router again and open the router set up. Upgrade the firmware.

Having trouble connecting. I see my encrypted router, but it shows as "unknown." And when I try to connect with it, connection fails. Says not in range although I'm in my own house. :o)


you said that you can see the wireless network but it shows as unknown network
I think SSID broadcast on your wireless network must be disabled.
You will need to enable the SSID broadcast of your network.
Also try to change the wireless channel on the router.
WRT54G router's IP address will be 192.168.1.1. if you have not changed it.
Do you have any other computer connected to the router woth the ethernet cable ?
If you do not have the computer connected to the route then connect 1 computer to the rotuer with the ethernet cable.
Do not change any wireless setting on the wireless computer.
You will need to open the set up page of the router

Hi,

For you to resolve this problem, you'll need to reset the router. Press and hold the reset button for 5 seconds, and when you are prompted for the user name and password just input "admin" in both fields.

Try connecting your computer to the router after this process.

Good Luck.

Routers generally have a 1000 foot limit, at the edge of the limit, the pc can see the router but usually will not connect, anything under 40% signal strength is usually not a connection that will work. Try moving the repeater and also try adding an amplified antenna,they are about 50$.
