Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Cannot access router webpage

I have a WRT 54G wireless router which I have been using as LAN router for about 2 years. Now I want to enable the wireless network in order to add a laptop but cannot access the webpage of the router.Two years ago, I was able to access the router just fine, at 192.168.1.1 The LAN configuration I have now consists of a PC Windows XP, the WRT 54G and a DSL modem. I can access the webpage for the modem OK, but not the webpage for the router. Please help, I need to connect my new laptop to test it before the 7 days of return expire. Thank you Floarea

    Thank you for your suggestion, I followed it but the situation did not improve.
    So,I disabled my McAfee virus scan and set the McAfee Firewall to Open Setting ( because it did not have an option to actually disable it).
    But I got the "Page Cannot be Found".

    Then I tried a couple of connection changes, here they are:

    1. PC connected to Linksys router connected to DSL modem. In this situation I tried 2 things
    First I triedhttp://192.168.1.1 but page could not be found.

    Then in the Command Window
    ping 192.168.1.1 for which I got :
    Request timed out.
    Request timed out.
    Request timed out.
    Request timed out.

    2. PC connected to Linksys router ( DSL modem disconnected). In this situation I tried thehttp://192.168.1.1 again but got page could not be found, again.

    Then in the Command Window
    ping 192.168.1.1 for which I got :
    Destination host unreachable.
    Destination host unreachable.
    Destination host unreachable.
    Destination host unreachable.

    So, we still cannot access the router page, even though we are currently connected to the Internet, through the same router.

    Can you help?

    Thank you
    Floarea

Wrt54g can be used as either a wireless router or access point. I am not familiar with your broadband service, but if it has a data port just connect it to Internet port.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer directly to the router.
Access the web-server "inside" the router.
Login to the router, with the current ID/password.
View the wireless settings:
* SSID
* encryption-level ('WPA' or better, please)
* network password

and change it, if you need to.

Is this an ISDN modem?

Generally: Netopia Ethernet out -> Linksys WAN port with a standard ethernet cable.

Wireless router installation


Please see my response to this question. Your university's connection is most probably a LAN connection, so you'd need to follow the instructions as if you had a cable internet connection (unlike DSL, a LAN connection and cable internet connection don't require authentication with the ISP).

WRT54GS DEVICE-NO INTERNET CONNECTIVITY


You didn't specify if you're using DSL or cable internet.

With DSL, keep in mind the software1.gif on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to connect.

Also, make sure that ONLY the LAN is connected from the router to the modem, and not both the USB and LAN.

If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.

ROUTER CONNECTIVITY


Ok, do a troubleshooting session.
Unplug the router from the internet modem.
Try at first to connect using a Network cable from you PC to one of the LAN sockets.
Can you access http://192.168.1.1  with your web browser?  (the configuration page)
     If yes it is possible that the router has the same address as your adsl modem.
    change the router address to something 192.168.0.1 instead of 192.168.1.1
     Save your changes. Plug your WRT to the adsl modem and try again.

     Does the internet work now with a wired connection ?

If the above does not work can you "ping" the machine ?
      ping 192.168.1.1

if none of that works try doing a hard reset... heres a little guide (off the DD-WRT wiki)

What is the difference between 802.11g and 54g?


54g implements the latest draft of the IEEE 802.11g specification. The two primary distinctions between 54g and 802.11g are: 1) 54g is designed to enable 54 Mbps connectivity. The 802.11g draft specification makes 54 Mbps connectivity optional, and simply requires up to 24 Mbps connectivity to comply with the specification. 2) 54g products are based on the same wireless LAN chipset, which means they are interoperable. Because the standard is not final, it is not yet possible to test for 802.11g interoperability.
