Let you router allocate the ip addresses manually by enabling DHCP and restart the router,and remove the usb adapter from the usb port and reconnect it, but when you right click on the taskbar on the little pc icons for your connection click enable WZC windows wireless Zero configuration as this will dissable the software you got with the usb adapter and hopefully make the connection more stable, but ensure you have a strong signal.

1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

My US Robotics USR5461 Wireless MaxG router needs to be rebooted quite often (sometimes once or twice a day) to get internet access back. The status page says it's connected to the internet but I can't...


Hello,

Considering the frequency you have to reboot the router to get it to work may indicate a glitch with the WAN gateway.

I recommend fully resetting the router and setting the wireless network up again.
You should be able to reset the router using a pin and sticking it in the pin hole on the back of the router near the power source.

Thanks,

Pat

I have a WCG200 linksys but can not go onto internet.


from what i have read, your router is broadcasting a signal, and your modem has an open and active internet gateway.

pls make sure that the connection from the modem to the router are correct. the modem should be connected in the port with the label internet. you may have to reset your modem AFTER you have connected the wireless router to allow the router to be assigned an ip. now with the wireless router and broadband modem connected, you can connect to the network and access the internet. pls repost if you hit any snags
GOOD LUCK and PLS rate this post.

Can't Connect to Internet


there is a need to reconfigure your router to work with your modem. If configured already before, then there is great chance that this has been set back to factory default.
