    I have the same problem saying the router is not hooked up correctly even though we have followed the directions to a tee. My internet supplier is DSL through Verizon and wondering if I need to purchase the Compact Wireless - G USB adapter. Also when I hook up the wireless router I lose all my internet connection.

    Who is your ISP?
    What is the brand of the modem?

    We may just need to manually configure your router if it won't do it via setup cd.

You need to change the LAN IP Address of the router. You need to access the router's Setup Page via internet explorer and open 192.168.1.1, no username and password is admin. Look for Local IP Address. Change it to 192.168.2.1 and Save the settings. Do a power cycle, unplug the power from the back of the router for 20 seconds then plug it back in. You should be able to go online now.

How to fix that computer does not recognize router?


Try to reset the router to factory defaults.

To reset your router to factory defaults, use the following procedure:

1) Power down all computers, the router, and the modem, and unplug them from the wall.
2) Disconnect all wires from the router.
3) Power up the router and allow it to fully boot (1-2 minutes).
4) Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds, then release it, then let the router reset and reboot (2-3 minutes).
5) Power down the router.
6) Connect one computer by wire to port 1 on the router (NOT to the internet port).
7) Power up the router and allow it to fully boot (1-2 minutes).
8) Power up the computer (if the computer has a wireless card, make sure it is off).
9) Try to ping the router. To do this, click the "Start" button > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. A black DOS box will appear. Enter the following: "ping 192.168.1.1" (no quotes), and hit the Enter key. You will see 3 or 4 lines that start either with "Reply from ... " or "Request timed out." If you see "Reply from ...", your computer has found your router.
10) Open your browser and point it to 192.168.1.1. This will take you to your router's login page. Leave the user name blank, and in the password field, enter "admin" (with no quotes). This will take you to your router setup page. Note the version number of your firmware (usually listed near upper right corner of screen). Exit your browser.

If you get this far without problems, try the setup disk (or setup the router manually, if you prefer), and see if you can get your router setup and working.

If you cannot get "Reply from ..." in step 9 above, your router is dead.

If you get a reply in step 9, but cannot complete step 10, then either your router is dead or the firmware is corrupt. In this case, use the Linksys tftp.exe program to try to reload your router with the latest firmware. After reloading the firmware, repeat the above procedure starting with step 1.

If you need additional help, please state your ISP, the make and model of your modem, your router's firmware version, and the results of steps 9 and 10. Also, if you get any error messages, copy them exactly and report back.

I am trying to install a WRT54GS Linksys wireless router, on my desktop, but when I get to step 4 on the CD, it says "waiting for router", but after five or so minutes, an error shows up saying ERROR 322. ...


It's possible.. try using LinkSys "Live Chat" if the online help or CD is not getting the job done for you. The support people there should be able to quickly identify the cause of the 322 error.

LinkSys used to have 24/7 telephone support, but that is gone. The Live Chat is the closest thing you're going to get to that.

Good luck!

My router will not connect the power light keeps blinking


Check this tip out from Linksys. It is for a G VPN Router but you could use the same steps to troubleshoot. Title: Resolving Blinking Power or Diag LED on a Linksys Wireless-G VPN Router Article ID: 4982 If the Power LED on your Linksys router is blinking, this means the device is not ready. It should go off once the router completes its diagnostic test. If the Power LED won?t go off, it indicates that there?s a possible hardware problem with the router. To resolve this, you will need to perform five steps: Resetting the Router Assigning Static IP to the Computer Pinging the Router Accessing the Router?s Web-based Setup Page Updating the Router?s Firmware For instructions on how to reset the router, follow the steps below. Resetting the Router Hold in the RESET button at the back of the router for 30 seconds. Unplug the power to the router then plug it back in. If after resetting the router and the Power LED is still blinking, try resetting the router again for another 30 seconds. Then proceed with assigning a static IP address on the PC. For instructions, follow the steps below. Assigning a Static IP Address on Your Computer Most of the time, if the power LED on the router is blinking it loses its ability to assign IP addresses to the PCs connected to it, which is why you need to assign the computer a static IP address. After assigning a static IP address on the computer, check if the computer is still communicating to the router by performing a ping test. To ping the router, follow the steps below. Pinging the Router Ping test helps trace the communication between the computer and the router. The computer sends packets to the router and in return the router sends out replies to validate the connection. In this example, our router IP address is 192.168.1.1. NOTE: If you?re using Windows 98 or ME, click here. Windows 2000/XP Step 1: Click Start, then Run. Step 2: When the Run window opens, type ?cmd? in the Open field, then click OK. Step 3: When the MS DOS Prompt appears, type ?ping 192.168.1.1? and press [Enter]. Step 4: Check the ping statistics. You should get Packets: Sent =4, Received =4, Lost = 0 (0% loss). NOTE: If you?re not getting good replies from the router, it means the router is not communicating properly with the computer anymore. You can already consider the device defective. Windows 98/ME Step 1: Click Start, then Run. A window similar to Step 2 will appear. Step 2: When the Run window appears, type ?command? in the Open field, then click OK. Step 3: When the MS DOS Prompt appears, type ?ping 192.168.1.1? and press [Enter]. Step 4: Check the ping statistics. You should get Packets: Sent =4, Received =4, Lost = 0 (0% loss). NOTE: If you?re not getting good replies from the router, it means the router is not communicating properly with the computer anymore. You can already consider the device defective. If you get good responses from the router, access the router?s web-based setup page to see if a firmware update is possible. For instructions, follow the steps below. Accessing the Router?s Web-based Setup Page In order to perform a firmware update, you should be able to access the router?s web-based setup page. Updating the firmware is one way of resolving the blinking power light on the Linksys router. To access the router?s web-based setup page, click here. NOTE: If you?re having difficulties accessing the router?s web-based setup page, the router is considered defective. If you?re able to access the router?s web-based setup page, proceed in updating the firmware upgrade.

Laptops stopped connecting wireless


how about to reset your router and setup it the proper address by your internet provider..
laptops only connect to the router automatically if you enable it reconnect and detect its network without manually connect internet, this procedure can see in your wireless properties by enabling it.
And also ask your internet provider if theres a problem also with their internet connection.
Good luck!

Cannot connect to 192.168.1.1


You must check if your PC is getting correct IP from your router by running ipconfig on DOS command. The Default Gateway must shows 192.168.1.1. Just to be sure this IP is accessible, run a ping test (Ping 198.168.1.1).

C:\Users\PC>ping 10.1.1.1

Pinging 10.1.1.1 with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64
Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64
Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64
Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64

Ping statistics for 10.1.1.1:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms

C:\Users\PC>

You will see the above results if the test is successful. If it failed, possible a Firewall is blocking the PC to access the Router. Try to disable it and see if it will works. If the same issue or even the test passed but can't access the IP address, reset the router to factory defaults by pressing the small hole at the back of the router. Then do the above steps again to see if you can now access it. Hope this helps.

Pc to pc


follow instructions for setup.
1. in your computer network adapter TCP/IP settings, set into "Obtain as IP address Automatically".
2. do the same(step 1) in other computer
3. after saving the settings you should have now a network for two computer thru router.
4. one of your computer should have an IP 192.168.0.2 or 192.168.1.2 as most of router default IP series is 192.168.0.0
5. if you have this series of IP for both computer you have already a network
6. to test if both computer is communicating run this command at DOS or Command Prompt( click start, run and command the click OK
7. at DOS command prompt type PING 192.168.0.2 (ping the IP address of the other computer in your network)
8. or you can also ping the computer name like PING mycomputer(your laptop or desktop computer name)
9. successful PING should have a "reply from" results.

Hope this will help you

Linksys wrt54gs cant connect..


hi try this before you hit the reset botton. Check if Windows XP firewall or 3rd party firewall are blocking the pings, and temporarily disable them just to be sure. The WRT54GS has a feature called "AP Isolation", It's on the "Wireless -> Advanced Settings" page. You won't need it for home use so turn it off as well. Last thing, do a firmware upgrade. Hope it's helps Good luck.
