Question about Linksys WUSB54GSC Compact Wireless-G USB Network Adapter w/ SpeedBooster [WUSB54GSC] (LS-SB54GSC)

Linksys WUSB54GC Connected to the Network But No Internet

I've been using the Lynksys WUSB54GC to my Linksys WRT54G2 wireless router for the past few months without any problem. However, recently my PC was 'attacked' by the 'Antivirus 2009' and 'ieMonster.b' malware. I used Malwarebytes' AntiMalware to kill the malware. Ever since then my PC has been having the problem of "connected to the network but internet cannot be found". My other 2 Acer laptops work just fine, so is my main PC. I've tried to "repair" connection, use cmd to renew ip address, reinstall internet drivers but to no avail...Could someone please help?? Linksys support provides no help at all!!

    Finally got this problem fixed. It's caused by an error in "sock2". Downloaded a freeware called "ispfix" and managed to repair the wrong values in sock2 that was caused by the removal of "Antivirus 2009" & iemonster.b" malwares. Thanks.

    Sorry, typo - it should be "lspfix" and you can get it from the following website www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm

    Hope this help

Hi

The Router configuration is not that much difficult, only few thing you have sure,
1) Correct ADSL Connection User name & password,
2) Chose unique ip address in All host.

Follow the mention bellow instruction to configure and connect to Wifi Router,

  • Plug the network cable ( Mine was Blue ) which comes with the Router Box pack to your computer. The other end goes into any of the Router Ethernet Port ( 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 )
  • Now type in 192.168.1.1 in IE or Firefox or any browser. You will prompted for password which is admin. You must be logged into Linksys Router.
  • Now since your ADSL modem is also having the same IP , we will change the IP address for WRT54G2 Router to 192.168.5.1
  • Under Setup >Basic Setup look for Network Setup and Change Router IP. Change to 192.168.5.1 and Save changes.
  • Since the IP has changed you will need to close the Browser.
  • Sometimes the IP doesnt change automatically. Do a IPCONFIG / RELEASE and then IPCONFIG / Renew

Making WRT54G2 Router talk to ADSL broadband modem
  • Plugin the Ethernet cable which comes from the Modem into the port on Wrt54g2 router which says Internet.
  • Open Internet Explorer and Type in 192.168.5.1.
  • Type in same password ( admin )
  • You will be in Setup > Basic Setup
  • Take a look at Section , Internet Setup. The current selection should be Automatic Configuration DHCP. Select Static IP instead.
  • Add following details to it. In the first step we backed up All the IP configuration. Use them here
Internet IP Address: . . .
Subnet Mask: . . .
Gateway: . . .
Static DNS 1: . . .
Static DNS 2: . . .
Static DNS 3:

  • Once Done just save changes and you should be back at same page.
  • Now try to connect any application which talks to internet. You should be able to connect
Configuring for Wireless Connection :Now once your Router is talking with Modem, it is pretty easy to connect on Wireless. The only thing we need to setup here is Security. Lets get WIFI
  • Get to the Lynksys page again. Do all login and regualr stuff.
  • Now look for menu Wireless, click on it. You should land on Basic Wireless Settings.

Basic Wireless Settings

  • Select wireless configuration to Manual .
  • Wireless network mode to Mixed.
  • Give a Wireless Network Name (SSID), make sure its unique.
  • Make Wireless channel selection 11 ( 11 - 2.463 GHZ)
  • Select Wireless SSID Broadcast to Enable
  • Save Settings and you will be back at the same page with changes you made.
Now Lets secure the Router :
  • Go to Wireless Security on the same page.
  • You will need to configure here Security Mode : WPA Personal, WPA Algorithms: TKIP
  • WPA Shared Key is what you will need when you connect to your router without wire. This key does the authentication and keep unwanted people away. Add 8 digit alphanumeric key.
  • As suggested in comments, there is a new mode which you can use : WPA2 with AES
  • Save changes.Just make sure you save that key to a notepad or remember it.

Wrt54g2 wireless security

  • Now last step, Move to next menu Security > Firewall .
  • Uncheck Block Anonymous Internet Requests .
  • Save Settings.

Wrt54g2 firewall settings

  • Remove the blue cable which you had connected with Router.
That's it. Now just turn on your WIFI and Search for the router. The name should be visible. Click to connect. At this stage it will ask you for the Password or Shared Key which we configures just above. It will connect and you will be able to connect to Internet.
That's all Folks. This is how you connect WRT54G2 Linksys router with Adsl Broadband Modem. If you have any questions feel free to comment.

I have a lynksys router. It will work with our mac, but if i try to get online with my pc, neiter will connect or if one is connected, it will disconnect. can i fix this


Hi,

I see that you are having issues with your network connection, I believe that you are trying to connect wireless on both systems.

* Check your Linksys for settings that limit the routers wireless connection, most wireless routers have an option on how many computers can connect wireless to the router, a wireless signal does not chose what OS to allow for a wireless connection.

* get in your Linksys Routers Setting page from IE or Firefox using your Default gateway IP from there on you can check your Routers settings, user name depends if your internet service provider changed the Routers user name and password but for a Linksys try admin / password or admin / admin for the User name and Password field.

Hope this helps you thanks and have a good day.

Have Linksys WRT54G2. All port led's are lit and


How is your router connected? If you have all port lights lit, either green or orange, and nothing connects seeing the Internet, are your problems with wireless access? Is the Wireless set correctly, by going to http://192.168.1.1 and logging in to the router? Make sure the SSID (network name) and other security measures are set correctly ... I prefer WPA-PSK[TKIP] for its simplicity. You will need the passcode you choose to log in with wireless devices.

Unable to connect to the internet using a linksys wireless adapter. Connects to the router but can't find the internet.


Isolate the issue by directly connecting the PC to the router via ethernet cable (if possible).

If you were able to get online while hardwired connected to the router, then check the IP address of the wireless network connection, check the wireless security if the network key matches.

If you cannot get online while hardwired to the router, then directly connect the computer to the modem.

If you were able to get online while directly connected to the modem, then the problem is the internet settings on the router. Check the WAN configuration, such as DHCP or PPPoE.

If you cannot get online when directly connected to the modem, then you will need to contact your Internet Service Provider.

Connecting wireless router to laptop computer


Try changing the channel on the router. It would be better to isolate the problem first by trying to connect to other wireless networks on your laptop or having someone's laptop connect to your home wireless network.

WUSB54GC model wireless adapter won't connect after months of use


Instead of using the passphrase use the wep key 1 that you created on the router page when you generate it using the passphrase.

Then when you try to connect using the linksys wireless monitor just leave the passphrase blank and type in the wep key1 box the key that I mentioned earlier.
