Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

My linksys router won't allo me to connect to the internet.

I have three laptops and one desktop. Recently I have been getting a lot f problems with my linksys router connection. I have had it for about three or four years now and have called linksys support. They fix it everytime and then a couple weeks later, same problem. When I connect directly to my att motem my desktop will work. But I need the router so that the laptops may connect to the internet wirelessly. Today I had this problem again and called three times. They fixed it and three hours later it happened again, no connection. Now they are telling me my router (WRT54G ver 2) is old and if replaced with a new linksys roter, I will have no more connection issues. I don't know if this is true and I just want to have a router that works so I don't have to sit on hold every other week trying to solve the same issue over and over again. Please help. New router or can this be solved? And are the newer models reliable?

Thank you.

Well to be honest. The reason you keep having the problem is because your router resets itself every few hours. If your routers firmware was already updated by LInskys support and the same thing happens then you will indeed need a new router. Newer models and even the one that you have are all reliable the only problem in your case is most likely wear and tear. You have had it for a few years now hence most likely its degraded to a point that it resets itself which causes your problems so yes i would suggest you get a new one. YOu can get the latest WRT54G V8

Two possibilities. Either the ip number for the laptop is the same as the hard wired LAN connection (if so change one of the ip numbers to a different one unless using DHCP) or the wireless is failing in the router.

Laptops connect to router but still cannot get on internet


It's just a wireless interference problem. All you need to do is change the wireless channel of your router. Login to the router's admin page and look for wireless channel under the WIRELESS tab. Change it to channel 11 and save the settings. That should solve your problem. You can play around with different channels and check which one is the best for your environment. Good Luck!

Laptop Cannot Find Home Wireless Network


Try logging into the router with your desktop hard-wired and find the 25-digit passcode and use that to log on to the wireless network with the laptop. If not, then check if connection is good by hard-wiring the router to the laptop. Let me know what happens or if you have solved the problem.

Wireless Network working on laptop, lost internet on desktop.


If you disconnect the desktop from the modem, were you able to get an Internet connection in your laptop?
In order to get Internet connectivity on your desktop at the same time with the laptop, then the desktop needs to be connected to the router. It should be connected to one of the Ethernet ports at the back of the router. Since, your desktop doesn't have an Ethernet port, then you need to connect a USB to Ethernet adapter to your desktop. Then from that adapter, you will connect to it an Ethernet cable going to the router.

You may check the following models:
Linksys USB200M
Linksys USB100TX
Belkin Gigabit USB 2.0 Network Adapter(F5D5055)
D-Link DUB-E100

There are other brands that offer USB to Ethernet adapters that you can check.

Hope this helps!

I don't see why not..
are you trying to hook up both computers to your linksys router?
if you have 3 computers now... I'm assuming your old pc was connected directly to the router, your laptop was connected wirelessly and now you have a brand new computer that you also want to connect to the internet using your lynksis router.. you should have not problems doing it, wirelessly or using a wire...as long as your router has ports avaliable...
