Question about Linksys Ultra RangePlus Wireless Routr Router

1 Answer

I just got a linksys N ultra range plus router. For some reason it will not assign an IP to my wireless card. I'm sure the router is set up correctly as my wife (on a macbook) can connect and browse freely from her wireless connection. I (winXP) on the other hand can only obtain a valid IP if I connect via ethernet.

How can I make settings to support DHCP IP assignments and also recognize my manual IP's assigned to the LAN connected devices?


The easiest way I can think of is to shrink the DHCP address pool.

To do that, at least on the model of Actiontec router I have, click on "Network (Home/Office)" the go to the "IP Address Distribution" section of the screen. "DHCP Server" should already be selected, and under that, you'll find "Start IP addresses" and "End IP addresses." Usually, the start will be 192.168.1.2 and the end will be 192.168.1.254. What I usually do is change the start address to 192.168.1.200. That leaves over 50 addresses for normal wireless connections, and I'll general assign IP addresses from the rest of the range as follows:
192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.9: routers, APs, etc.
192.168.1.50 to 192.168.1.59: printers
192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.109 for other static devices. (I often find that Blu-Ray players, cable boxes, etc. behave better if they have a static address.)

But really, on home network, I doubt you'll have more than 15 devices that need static addresses, so you could set the DHCP start address as low as 192.168.1.16 if you wanted to.

WRT4G2 VI wireless router. I was upating the firmware when the power flashed. I have no access to the router's gui and the router is not broadcasting. I am not getting a dhcp address


do a hard reset for the router by pressing the reset button for 10-20 seconds...
check whether its getting a dhcp address...
if it is still not getting an ip address, then try to assign a static ip address in the range of your router on your computer...

for example...
The default ip address of linksys is 192.168.1.1.............
then assign

IP address 192.168.1.5
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Default gateway 192.168.1.1

Also assign a static DNS
Primary DNS : 8.8.8.8
Secondary DNS : 8.8.4.4

Now try to open the GUI of your router...

2 Pc's with same IP


AT either desktop or laptop:

[Start]
[Run]
[cmd]
A dark "DOS" windows will appear
At the prompt, type: ipconfig
press [ENTER]
Note the "IP Address" (probably 192.168.1.2)
type: ipconfig /renew
press [ENTER]
Note the IP Address
If it has changed, then you are ok. Type: exit and press [ENTER]
If it did not change, then try this on the other computer.

If that didn't change either, the go to the Control Panel
[Network Settings]
Find the wireless or wired network adapter and Right-Click
Choose "Prpoerties"
In the Properties window, double-click "IP Address"
See the IP Address assigned? change the last digit by one number.
Example: if the IP Address is 192.168.1.2 then change to 192.168.1.3

[OK] [OK][OK]

It should work now...

Let us know!

2 Notebooks without router acces at the same time


Under the DHCP settings, make sure that there is enough IP addresses for the router to assign. Although DHCP is somewhat "automatic" if there is not a sufficient range of IP addresses for the DHCP server to assign, then only a small number of clients can connect. See this page here: http://support.dlink.com/emulators/di524/h_dhcp.html

Also make sure that your notebooks are not set to the same static IP address, only one device can connect to a specific IP address. To check this under Windows XP, Right-click your wireless network connection and select "Status" then "Properties". Highlight the "Internet Protocol TCP/IP" and select "Properties". Make sure that the radio buttons "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are selected. Click OK and OK to close the windows and save the settings.

I would also unplug the router, wait 60 seconds, then plug it back in and try to reconnect. Sometimes for whatever reason, the routers memory can get corrupted, (just like a computer) and need to be restarted.

Add a Linksys 2.4 ghz range expander


Hello,

You can connect your expander to your PC via ethernet cable and then assign a static IP address on your PC.

To assign a static IP address, just double-click on the monitor icon on the lower right hand corner of your PC and then view status and go to properties. Look for TCP/IP v4 and click properties.

Select use the following IP address:

192.168.1.2
255.255.255.0

and then click OK.

After successfully assigning an IP address to your PC, let's test the connectivity by going to command prompt.

Go to Start>Run>and then type cmd and hit Enter.
Once you're on the black screen type ping 192.168.1.240.
If you get replies then your good to go...

Let's now access the Web UI of the you Wireless expander.
Open a browser and then type on the address bar 192.168.1.240 and then hit enter.

It will prompt you with WRE54G's username and password. Just type the password to login to the Web UI. The default password is admin.

Once your on the Setup page, you have to configure your settings exactly the same as your wireless router (e.g. wireless security, IP address range) except for the SSID. You may want to change the SSID on your WRE54G for you to easily identify where your wireless computer is connected.

You can leave the WRE54G's IP address to 192.168.1.240 if your wireless router's IP address is on the same range like 192.168.1.x

Then on the Gateway address type your router's IP address. If you're also using Linksys the default IP address usually is 192.168.1.1

Then you can configure your wireless settings same as your router. After that, same the settings and see if the light on the WRE54G becomes BLUE. If yes, then you're good to go! You can unplug the PC from the WRE54G and then set your PC's IP address back to Obtain an IP Address Automatically. See static IP address procedure above.

Linksys Wireless-G not connecting to internet


Make sure you are plugging the SMC into the WAN port on the Linksys router and not the LAN ports.  Your internet connection (which is your SMC) should always plug into your WAN port on the Linksys.  Any computers that you may need to plug in, like Desktops that are "wired" and not "wireless", should plug into the LAN ports on the Linksys.  If you are not using the WAN port on the Linksys for your SMC modem, then that would explain why you cannot get to the internet on wireless or wired computers.
Here's why you are getting the "low connectivity" message:

Computers don't understand why the Internet is connecting or not connecting...so the "low connectivity" message you keep receiving has nothing to do with your wireless signal strength.   To a computer NIC, "low connectivity" means your network adapter could not find a DHCP server and receive a valid IP address.  When this happens, your network adapter assigns an IP address to your computer in the following range...169.254.0.0, and will display the "low connectivity" message until it is able to receive a valid private IP address from the DHCP server.  You can verify this by going to START | RUN and typing "cmd" (without the quotes), then hit ENTER.  A black box will pop up....then type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER.  This will show you your IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address, and you can verify that your IP address is in the 169.254.0.0 range.  A valid private IP address is typically in the 192.168.0.0 range, but could also be in the 10.0.0.0 range, or the 172.16.31.0 range.    Also, make sure you have DHCP server enabled on the Linksys router for the LAN.  This will ensure your "wired" and "wireless" computers receive a valid IP address.  
The WAN port on your Linksys router should be configured to "Obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP".

Cheers!

I need to reserve an ip address on my Linksys WRT54G2 router


The ip address for your Linksys router will be 192.168.1.1 - you can assign an ip address within the same ip range - for example 192.168.1.6

Desktop/labtop - want to use internet with both at same time


check to see what your router setting is for "IP range" under the DHCP section. If it is NOT setup as a DHCP server, then enable this and put in a range of for example : 192.168.1.2 through 192.168.1.10
This will give you the availability of 9 connections. Also,.. be sure that your computers are setup to have their IP assigned automatically ( unless you NEED a static IP )
You should be able to access these settings by opening a browser and typing in the address 192.168.1.1 ( linksys default )
Hope this helps,.. I only came here to find range specs of wireless N routers :-P
