New WRT54GS Router, Wired Desktop not working

Hi all. In my house we have 3 computers. 1 Desktop, 2 laptops. For christmas we decided to upgrade our previous linksys (wired) router and go wireless. It was quite easy to set-up, except the desktop, connected to the comcast modem and router has stopped connecting to the internet. In fact we can not even open mozilla firefox anymore to get the error screen. The laptops can connect fine both wired and wireless, so I'm not sure if it's the desktop, the router or a mismatch between both. The computer is on the older side, but in good working condition. Would crashing it and starting over be a good solution. How exactly do you purposely crash your computer to achieve this?

To do this you would restor it back to factory which means old you programs and documents that have been added will be permatly lost inless you put these files on a usb flash brive or burn them to a cd.

Hi,

I hope you have a Belkin F5D8233 ver :3000 wireless router and you have upgraded the firmware version: 3.01.29.

It's a known issue with this model , only the wired connection will be not be online. Another information when you connect the computer in the 1st LAN slot you will have internet connection but not with other 3 LAN slot on the router. To fix this please follow these steps,

1. Log into the Belkin router setup page (http://192.168.2.1) in a wired computer .

2. In the left hand side under the heading Utilities? click on save/backup settings

3. When its asking for password to login leave it blank and click on submit.

4. Click on save to save the settings of the router in the Desktop

5. Then again under Utilities? click on restore factory defaults and then click restore defaults button, to restore the settings of your router to factory settings.

6. Then Under Utilities click on restore previous settings and select the file where you saved it and click on restore settings.

Then automatically you will be able to go online both wired and wireless.

I'm sure this would work. If it does work then please rank me and give me a testimonial

Thanks in Advance!

With Regards,

Prema.

I think the most likely problem is that both routers are using different IP address ranges and won't allow data to pass between them.
I suggest you use only the Linksys wireless router.

RESETTING WIRELESS ROUTER


You don't have to reset the router to use it for a wired connection. You will need an Ethernet cord connected directly to the device that you want internet connectivity for. Such as a Desktop or Laptop
I hope this helps. Have good day!

My router is suddenly not working. The internet, modem, router and the wired lights are on, but the wireless and security lights aren't on and I can't connect from my laptop wirelessly.


check the wireless settings of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and make sure that the wireless SSID broadcast is enabled.
If enabled then try to change the wireless channel of the router.
if that doesn't work then try to upgrade the firmware of the router.

May I suggest you get wired to the WRT54G (you will need a ethernet cable for this I guess you know) ... google Network Magic and run the free evaluation version? Network is a Cisco product as is your router. I use the paid pro version for all my network duties. It may help you to solve your trouble.

Wrt54gs router works on wired desktop,and wirelessly on laptop but not older laptop. if I plug in ethernet, I get internet just can't get wireless to work.


could be that the router is transmitting G or N but the old laptop is only B.
Router needs to be set to transmit B as well as G/N but be aware that this affects the performance of the newer laptop. It won't affect the desktop though.

DSL line disconnects on WRT54GS only


Try to change the LAN IP address of your router to 192.168.2.1 by accessing the router's Setup page. You also need to set your Westell modem to "full-bridge mode". You need to ask assistance from your ISP to bridge the modem. After that, set-up the Linksys router to PPPoE then power cycle it.

I need to set up my linksys WRT54GS. do i set it up on my laptop or desktop? or both?


When you set up your router do always use a wired computer (phisically connected ).
You'll be setting up the router so setting it up through one is enough
Once the router is set up by performing these options
1>start->run->cmd ->youll find default gateway
2>open rsp by typing in default gateway address in brouser tab
3>select ->connection type ->and put in your uname and password for dsl or clone mac address for cable
4>set channell to 11 or 6 for best signal strength
5>set ur ssid(network name) and security (wep preffered) if you want it.
6>once router is set up on the top of the rsp you may see ipstatus:: connected
7>Now just select your network on your laptop
and happy surfing
Let me know if your issue is sorted
