Question about Linksys (WRT54GC) Router

1 Answer

Getting a router signal, but no internet

I have a MacBook pro and have had no problem hooking up to wireless networks in the past, but I just hooked up a linksys compact wireless g router and I can't get internet. All the router lights are up, showing (I assume) that it's receiving internet from my cable modem and my comp shows that it's receiving the wireless signal, but there's still no internet.

Have you check if you have a valid IP address? You could run IPconfig in the DOS window to verify this. If you have a valid IP address, try pinging the default gateway (You should be able to ping it.) Then, try to ping a website. If you could ping a website or URL but still can't browse check your firewall settings and optimize your browser.

Please post here what happen.

Thanks and regards,

Internet Connection Problem on One Computer


By any chance, are you trying to use something other than Windows to manage the wireless adapter? If you are, remove it.

Now, Click on Start, right click on Network highlight properties, and click on manage network connections on the Tasks menu.
Your two options will be the icons for your LAN and Wireless Network. Is it enabled and without red or yellow marks? It could be disable, it could be not connected and you can't view wireless networks because the switch is off, or it may just nut see your unsecure network (unlikely).

If the above is clear, right click on the wireless and highlight Properties and left click so it brings up the Networking tab. Highlight IPv4 and click on Properties. Make sure the Obtain dots are ticked. That should work, since you are running unsecured.
If it already is, check the red X or if it isn't click OK and close down the box.

Now, back to where your Wireless card is showing, right click it and you have Disable, Connect/Disconnect, Status, Diagnose etc.

If you're still Disconnected but not Disabled, click on Connect/Disconnect. Does it show your wireless network?

By this time, it should. If it doesn't post back. The other possibility is that you take your computer to a wireless internet cafe, McDonalds, Panera Bread, or motel with WiFi and test it there.

Setting up router


The Alltel must hook to a wireless source. Your D-link could be that source, but then it needs to be hooked to a source. If you have a wire coming to your house you should hook this to the Wan port on the D-link. Then your computer will hook to the d-link. It then should be setup with codes for security.

Have I confused you yet? In answer directly to your question, yes your Alltel will work with your D-link. But your D-link will then be your wireless source.

Where are you getting your signal from now?

My laptop suddenly cannot connect to the router.


It comes down to a few things with routers and wireless connections:
1. If you have been dropping the signal over the past few weeks try doing a test on the wireless network connection via the diagnostic tool within the specific wireless connection.
2. You may have gotten a bad update to the wireless card. Try uninstalling it and then reinstalling it.
3. Try deleting the wireless connection for your router and then make 'a new' wireless connection.

Trying to hook up my daughters macbook to our linksys wireless network


Make sure your wireless network has the security settings "disabled" while you try to connect your MacBook. You can "enable" them later after you get it to work. It should be as simple as that.
