I have a working router and adapter. The adapter's port went bad, so it got unplugged. I plugged it in another port and now I have limited or no connectivivty. Linksys won't tell me how to reconfigure w/o paying them again. Please help if you can.
Sincerely, Diane I am getting a limited or no connectivity on my dell inspiron e1505 with my linksys wrt54gs. I reformated my disk and now I can not connect. I had to call linksys when I purchased the router and they fixed it for free. Now they want to reconfig my laptop settings remotely and charge for it. My other 3 computer are still working on the router. My laptop will access all the local wifi with no problem, just limited on my system. Help

Im assuming youre using an integrated ethernet card since you say "adapter port" and "unplugged". So....

Since you reformatted your HD with O/S re-installation you may also have to reinstall or update it to the correct ethernet adapter driver. As far as the ethernet card set-up - copy your ethernet card property configurations from the other computers. Also copy configuration settings from your Internet Explorer options.

Router not connecting properly


The NETGEAR router is a firewall. It blocks ports to prevent attacks from programs or users from the Internet to the computers or devices behind your router. Each application on the Internet uses ports. For example, when you browse the Internet, it uses port 80. An FTP server uses port 21. This is the same as your Xbox that uses ports to connect to the Internet. Before we proceed to any troubleshooting procedures, check if the Xbox is working directly to the modem. This will verify if there is something wrong with the Xbox. If the game console won't connect to the Internet when directly connected on the modem, it means that it is not your router blocking the connection. Here are the steps on how to open the ports on the router:

A. Determine the IP Address and MAC Address of the Xbox.

Note: You may find the IP address and MAC address of your Xbox on your Dashboard's Network Settings. Please refer to your Xbox manual for more information on this.

Wrong ip address, need to reconfigure


Hi Diane,

If your getting limited or no connectivity on your wireless connection on the computer more or less you have enabled wireless security on your router and you need to delete or configure the wireless settings on your computer and make sure that you entered the correct security settings. For example if you had enabled WEP 64bit on the router, you should go to the wireless connection properties of your wireless adapter and go to wireless networks, there you can select your network name and click on edit or configure, enter the correct network key(normally if its WEP it's either 10 or 26 digit if it's WEP 128bit).
