Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

Lexmark X6690 will not connect to router

I have tried two routers (linksys and belkin) both bog standard, no password security. Each time I try to set up the Lexmark I get as far as the point where the lexmark is trying to obtain an IP address from the router. The laptop I have connected to the printer (in order to run the printer driver and setup programme) is also connected to the same router. I have also tried entering the SSID manually, which makes no difference. I have had the printer, modem and computer all on the same table, within a metre of each other. The only thing I can think of is that the router was also connected to two other laptops at the same time.

I am on the point of trying to return the printer to Curry's but I suspect they will not take it back since the problem seems to be with our set up.

any help greatly appreciated!

IF you have DHCP turned on on your router check and see what range of IPs you are using and use one outside the range and try setting a static IP on the lexmark like 192.168.1.100 or whatever the scheme is

I dont have a disk to install my wep key to stop people from stealing my internet


open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Enter admin for both the username and password.

If it not accept then type user name Admin leave the password box blank and then click ok.

If it still does not accept it that means you have changed your user name and password of linksy.
To get your linksys default settings you will have to reset your linksys router by inserting a paperclip into the small Tiny hole into the back of the Linksys router for 10 sec.

Now you try to access router by user name and password which is mentioned above.

now you will have Linksys router page and now click on Security seetings on top

choose WPA PSK security settings

Now it will as you the security key

Enter any security minimum of 8 Characters anything you like.

click save settings on the bottom.

now try to connect to your Wireless network

it will ask you the security key

Enter your security and your wireless network is secured now.

here is also the Linksys Tech support no. as well. to know your exact user name and password of linksys and other details.

Having an issue getting my laptop connected to the internet. The wireless networks appear and it shows that i am connected to the linksys, however i get a dns server issue when i try to go online. It shows...


Hi,
I see that your having issues with you wireless connection, you mentioned that it is an old model Router that has a B wireless signal and that you are connected to the Router but you get an Error about the DNS having issues, try checking your Routers Network Key, make sure that your Network Key in the Laptop and Router are the same.
- to get in your Belkin Router you must type in your Default Gateway on you browser ex. IE, Firefox 192.168.2.1 then press enter after typing your Belkin's Default Gateway you should get a window prompting you for a user name and password
mvincentc_15.jpg

your user name would be admin and the password leave it blank then press enter unless you have changed the user name and password setting of your Belkin.
- check under wireless and security to see your Network Key/Security Key and copy what you have in you router and use it on your laptops network security to be able to access internet from your Belkin Router.
Hope this helps.

You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
For belkin router http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1

If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.

I have forgotten my password and need to connect a new computer to my router-the router is a belking plus mimo and I have a linksys wireless g speed booster -what do I do to fix this? Many thanks


Reset the both routers in order to go to the factory default setting.
BELKIN (192.168.2.1) normally has no user name or password. So just hit enter.
Linksys (192.168.1.1)
User Name: admin
Pass Word: admin

You can always change the user name and password

Good Luck!

Opening the NAT connection for Xbox 360 working through 2 routers


  1. How do you connect your Linksys router to Belkin router? Do you connect your Linksys router to the Internet/WAN port of the Belkin?
  2. If so, what is the Internet connection type set in your Belkin router? Is it dynamic?
  3. If the Belkin router is set to dynamic IP and if it is obtaining an IP address from your Linksys router(you may check the status page of your Belkin router and look for IP address), then you may need to forward or set that IP address as the DMZ to your Linksys router. Make sure that XBOX is still configured as the DMZ host in your Belkin
Hope this helps!

Connection to a Belkin usb


if you are using the belkin utility (look at your task bar, there should be an icon that looks like a tv screen), open it and you will prompted with a belkin screen. now go to the AP List tab and locate the wireless name of you linksys router and connect to it. make sure that your using the same wireless settings like the wireless security (if you have enabled it on your router) so as to make the connection successful. if you are not sure about your wireless settings, open a web browser to a hardwired computer and type http://192.168.1.1 (default ip address of your router). you will prompted with a log in screen, leave the username blank and type admin (default password) on the password. then you will be prompted with a linksys screen, go to the wireless tacb and check your wireless ssid/name and look for the wireless security sub tab to verify the wireless password that you are using.

hope this'll help you

ciao
