Try a different channel and is your network secured? if there's other people connected to it and downloading, of course it's loaded more and not connecting good.

Power, DMZ, WLAN leds OFF. Ethernet, Internet are solid ON.


With the signs that you have describe about your router, this is a clear signs that the router is already bad the hardware itself and better have it replace if still under warranty if not you need to go get a new one sorry about that router is dead already.

Hello, my linksys router is flashing wlan,internet lights/ no-one is on line. is this normal?


Yes,

The links remains active when you are not using it and it is not unusual for lights to blink. And dont forget that Microsoft does various updates over the net when you are NOT using the machines.

My wlan light keep going on and off on my wrt54g


Also check if the power light on your router is blinking. If it is blinking, that's an indication of hardware failure. To revive it, do a hard reset. Press and hold the power button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power. Wait for 30 seconds again before you plug it back in.

Linksys WRT54G not seeing internet connection


spacer335,

Who is your Internet service provider, and do you have cable or DSL? You said you have your PC, Xbox and DVR all hard-wired and working fine; are they currently able to get online while connected directly to the Linksys WRT54G? What devices are you trying to connect wirelessly to your Linksys WRT54G?

If you are currently getting Internet access let's check the wireless settings in your router.

Here are a few things you can do to verify your wireless settings in the Linksys WRT54G:

1. From your hard-wired PC, log into your Linksys WRT54G via the web-based interface. (Open Internet explorer and type 192.168.1.1) Note: this is the default IP address that comes on most Linksys routers.

If that doesn't work, verify your computers current IP address information by going to Start (or in Vista it's simply a windows icon), and selecting Run. Type CMD and hit Ok. Now type ipconfig and hit enter.

The default gateway information is the address of your router and should read something like 192.168.1.x.

Enter that address in Internet Explorer's address bar and hit Go.

2. If you connected successfully you should receive a username and password prompt, again the default username and password that comes with most Linksys devices is admin/admin, however it could be different if you've specified an alternate username/password. If you cannot remember the username/password, your only recourse is to perform a hard-reset of the device by using a small pin and holding the reset button on the back of the router.

3. Once you're in the router's web-based configuration there will be a section for "Wireless Settings" or "Wireless Configuration", or some derrevation. Depending on the version of firmware you have installed on the unit, it may be under Basic Setup or Advanced Setup.

You'll know you've located it when you have see options for SSID, Channel, Wireless Security/Encryption, WEP, WPA, etc.

This section will tell you the name of the signal your router broadcasts (also known as SSID). You can change this to whatever you like, in fact is reccommended you change to something unique so that you can easily identify your network when trying to connect with a laptop. You can also enable wireless security such as WEP or WPA, however for the purposes of troubleshooting let's leave encryption off for now. Once you've made the neccessary changes, select Save or Apply at the bottom of the page to save your changes.

4. Now, again since I don't know what you're attempting to connect wireless I will assume its a laptop with an intergrated wireless adpater, or possibly a USB or PCMCIA wireless adapter. Either way you should see your network (with the new name you've configured) in the list of avialable networks, do you see any networks listed? If the laptop has built-in wireless, is the WLAN switch enabled on the laptop? (Usually a small switch on the front or the side of the laptop indicating WLAN, or sometimes a function/fn key combination)

Hope this helps somewhat, give me some more information about what you're trying to connect wirelessly with and I'll see if I can help you out.

Linksys WRT54G v1.1 drops WAN IP!


OK - let's get on with that..and let's see what I can do...

Are you using standard Linksys firmware? To my knowledge, only third party frimware like DD-WRT and Tomato are capable of that. If so, have a look
  1. here for DD-WRT (and look at the "WLAN Repeater" link)
  2. or here for Tomato, (look for "Setting Up WDS Repeating") and see if you get any further.

Why do you need MAC cloning? (I'm just interested - maybe I can learn something too!)

Do you have access to the router "across the street"?

Good luck!

Cannot connect with ATT modem


Connect your pc to the ATT box. If online, check the ip address of the computer. If the ip address is 192.168.1.x, then you just have to change the router ip address. The wrt54g ip is 192.168.1.1, it may be having conflict with the ATT modem. Change the wrt54g ip to 192.168.2.1

Good Luck
