Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
Hi, we have a standard broadband, standard laptop and a Linsys wireless router, everything works fine until a power cut or my 17 month old switches the swich off (that the router is plugged into) then we cannot connect to the internet.
We have to set up the whole system again which takes us a good hr or so... This only happened AGAIN last week when my little girl turned off the router at the plug. I managed to fix it, (don't know how buttook ages) then tonight we get a split second power cut and it's gone again!! It is really annoying.
We have downloaded Linksys Easylink advisor to help. We can connect to the internet when wired, and our wireless says it is still connected with excellent signal etc etc, HOWEVER take out the cable to use the wireless and it displays the usual 'this page cannot be displayed please check your connections'.
Last time I got it working I used the Easylink and it goes through the processes of setting up a new router (whilst wired at this point) It says cannot find an active internet connection, whilst I have google running in the background running ok???
I press next and it asks for the usual wireless name etc and searches for another connection and says still can't find it, I thought I can't be bothered anymore and closed it down and unplugged the cables and found the internet all of a sudden still running ok... Great fixed but don't ask me how I did it... so tonight after our tiny power cut, went through the exact same motions again and nothing! So the only connection I can get is through wired or someone elses non secured wireless. Can someone please help us... we have had this problem and fear of anymore power cuts. Many Thanks
With regard to power cuts, i highly suggests you to buy a UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) to prevent further damage to your router. You can simply reconfigure the wireless settings of the router by accessing the router's Setup Page. Go to http://192.168.1.1, go to wireless tab and you can change the network name as well as enable the wireless security.
