    Hello. I will describe this the best that I can. Kind of confusing.

    Awhile ago we had a really good connection to the internet with a cable company. We have recently changed to at&t and we have not been able to connect my laptop to the internet since. I have a linksys wireless wrt54gs router and when i hook it up to the desktop i do not get a connection to the laptop. I was having trouble connecting to the internet on the desktop when the router was hooked up but i solved that problem today and now just the laptop will not connect.

I have fixed this problem many times by entering just the gateway in the TCP/IP properties or all values as static e.g ip address, subnet mask and gateway as follows:-

Limited Connectivity | wireless network

Connect with an ethernet cable and find out the IP Address

Also note the Subnet Mask, Gateway, and Primary and Alternate DNS values

To get these :-

1. Double click on Local Area Connection under Control Panel --> "Network Connections"
2. Click "Support" --> Click "details"

Enter these values for the wireless area connection like this :-

1. Click "Start" -- > "Control Panel" --> "Network Connections"
2. Right click on "Wireless Area Connection" --> select "Properties"
3. Click on "TCP/IP" (in th middle box) -- > Click "Properties"
4. Click "To use the following ip address"
5. Enter the values you got from wired connection above
6. If you get any duplicate warning messages ignore these

This will resolve the issue, I have used it many times

Desktop will not connect to internet when router is connected unplug and go through modem will connect linksys program that came with router will not recognize the router when you setup, worked for over 2...


Each network adapter (in the Linksys router, or in your computer) has a unique 12-character code. Some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will require you to "register" this 'MAC' (Media Acquisition Control) address, before they grant an IP-address to the device (router or computer). So, when you "bypass" the router, you're showing a different MAC-address to the ISP, and they are not allowing that MAC-address to get connected. Talk to your ISP.

Or, some cable-modems check the MAC-address, allowing just one or two computers to connect. Turn the cable-modem off, to make it "forget" the MAC-addresses that have connected to it.
Connect the router to the cable-modem.
Turn the modem on.
Turn the router on.
Connect your computer to the router.
Restart your computer.

Or, maybe the router really is "dead'; try the above, before choosing this option, and before buying a new router.

The Linksys configuration URL IP address is 192.168.1.1 this is used to configure the Linksys wireless settings.
The Linksys is also a router and will issue IP address to eack computer that connects to it (LAN and wireless). it will start issusing IP addresses starting at 192.168.1.2 and the last number will increment by one digit as each computer connects to the Linksys.

As last resort you might want to use a JTAG cable and debricking programming software. If your router is brikced or you want to change the firmware this cable can do it. The cable will connect to your parallel port and your wireless router so you can repair your router. They are about $5.95.

What do you want to know about the ports? The one separated from the other ports is the Internet port. that is where you're going to connect the cable from your modem. The other four are the ethernet port where you will connect the computers.

Linksys router not connecting


Very hard to say without getting into more technical details. Sounds like you may have a bad router, but more likely there is something wrong with the setup. You probably need someone with technical expertise to walk you through all the steps.

Have you tried calling Linksys tech support? They may be able to help. Also, you might try buying a different router just to give it a try. I've had good success with Netgear in addition to Linksys. I generally stay away from DLink.

Trying to turn a Linksys WRT54GS into a hub


  1. If you want to set the router to work only as a switch with wireless access point, you may need to get into its setup page and adjust some settings.
  2. Using a computer that is wired directly to one of the router's Ethernet ports, launch IE and type 192.168.1.1. It is the default IP address of the router. Then it will open a window, asking for a username and password. By default, there is no username and the password is admin.
  3. Once you're in the router's User Interface, look for a sub tab called "Advanced Routing" under the main tab SETUP. Then set router mode to "Router" instead of Gateway. In some router's, the choice there is NAT enable or disable. If it is the one showing there instead of Router mode, then set NAT to disable. Click Save settings which is located at the bottom portion of the screen.
  4. Then click on "Basic Setup" and then disable DHCP server. Save the settings then.
  5. Then your modem now will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router.
Hope this helps!

Linksys wrt54gs cant connect..


hi try this before you hit the reset botton. Check if Windows XP firewall or 3rd party firewall are blocking the pings, and temporarily disable them just to be sure. The WRT54GS has a feature called "AP Isolation", It's on the "Wireless -> Advanced Settings" page. You won't need it for home use so turn it off as well. Last thing, do a firmware upgrade. Hope it's helps Good luck.
