Hi vmveal, try this. (Do not remove the RJ45 cables from modem to router, router to PC). Power off the PC.
Unplug the DSL or cable modems power cord. Also unplug the routers power cord. There is a small reset button on the back side of both, (Modem & Router). Take a pen & push the reset button in for 10 seconds. Modem first & than router second.
Re-connect the modems power cord, than re-connect the routers power cord. Once both have powered up turn on your PC.
If this still fails to give you internet access you can call linksys or chat with linksys at this site: (See left side of link & bottom of page).

To talk with linksys tech, the number is in your manual.

Good luck vmveal!

Hi

I would like to know who is your internet service provider and would like to check if the router is configured with your ISP modem.

I have been running a Linksys BEFSR41 version 2 wired router for over 5 years without any problems. My wife is a teacher and her school p[urchased new laptops recently so I decided to go wireless. Got on...


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.

Trying to Install a wireless router WRT54GS; ISP Cox Cable


I don't know what type of internet connection you have. If you have cable internet connection, you can copy the mac address of your modem to your router - that's what you call, cloning. If you have DSL connection, you can just obtain an IP Address from the modem to the router. If it's an Internet connection that is requires authentication, you can use the PPPoE type of connection. You can configure your router to any of the mentioned configuration above.

Router not connecting


The problem here is that the WRT54GS is an old model, so naturally the installation CD is also old. This is especially a problem if you are running Vista. I ran into the same problem when I was installing my wireless card; my computer would detect it on boot up, but when I installed the drivers from the CD, it said the card wasn't plugged in.

The solution would be to download the lastest installation and driver files from the LinkSys website and use those instead of the installation CD that came with it. You may have to hunt for it, as some companies would rather push new products than update older ones, but since the router is still on the market, they should have the updated drivers and installation files.

Linksys wrt54gs Set up


1. Unplug your cable/dsl modem.
2. Unplug your Router
3. Plug in your modem ... wait for it to come completely up.
4. Plug in your WRT54G Router and wait for it to come up.
5. Go to your 1st PC and get into Command Prompt. Type is ipconfig /release .... then type ipconfig /renew
6. Check for internet connectivity.
Repeat step 5 for for your second PC.

If your second PC is wireless go into the wireless config utility and search for access points. Connect to your Access point and check for connectivity.

If you still have no internet. Press the reset button on the back of the router for 45 seconds while it is powered on. Repeat steps 5 and 6.

Be sure to lock down your wireless SSID so neighbors and people passing by are unable to connect to your access point and do bad things on your network.

No conection to the internet


This is not a solution it is a request for information please do not rate this (yet anyway). The answers provided below may generate more questions. If you want me to help we are a team attempting to solve this issue. You are the hands and eyes of this team and only what you communicate here and do based on instructions will assist me in applying that information to an acceptable solution for you.

To connect a router to the internet you must configure it according to your internet security providers (ISPs) requirements where they permit such connections.

Can you provide a link to your ISP's support or help website?

If not can you provide the name of your ISP and the geographic area your service is located in (such as city and state assuming as your profile indicates you are in the US)?

Can you confirm your router's manufacturer and model as Linksys WRT54GS?

Can you look on the bottom probably on a label and find a Version number for your router and report it here?

Do you have a computer with a wired ethernet connection to test the internet connection before attempting to utilize the wireless capabilities of your router? Are you willing to do so to provide feedback to me as to the success of the router's internet configuration?

Please indicate if you you want to discuss securing the wireless connection? (This may be a wise decision if you do not want your neighbors using your internet connection and/or accessing your computers publicly shared folders, if you have any -- this is especially important if you do not intend to use the wireless capabilities for all the previous reasons.)

To do this you will need to provide the manufacturer and model
of each the Wireless Adapter or the computer with a built-in
wireless adapter you want to connect to your network?

Upon receiving that information we can discuss the options to secure the wireless connections to your system. These will allow you to make decisions on options as to what you are willing to do and maintain to secure your internet connection.
