Some older mobile phones don't recognise some of the newer security settings (WPA2, for example).
It might be worth trying a different type of encryption (WPA/PSK or WEP) to see if these work better - obviously this would mean having to reconfigure the wireless connections on the computer and laptop.
Hope this helps.

Linksys wrt54g secure easy setup


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default PW (write it down and putit in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Problem connecting router to lap top


Your Linksys router might be secured, so your going to have to open a port for it to able to connect to the laptop. I am not an Expert on routers, but maybe Linksys will be able to help you. You can do the Linksys Live Chat, or you could can look around at the Linksys support site. If this doesnt work, please do not give me a bad rating. Instead, tell me in a comment and I will try to assist you further.

Hope this helps :)

If your laptop can detect the connection you need to reconnect if that doesn't work the best option is to reset the router and reconnect your network. I am attaching the link so you can reset it. Hope this helps.

I have a linksys WRT54G wireless router set-up. The problem is when I add the security features (to keep the neighbours from hijacking my signal) my son's MAC laptop and Play Station 3 won't work.


You want to secure the wireless network.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router with the cable.
Check the IP address on the computer. Open the router set up page.
Once you open the set up page, you will find the option to make it secured

Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router Issue Allows 1 Computer at a time


Your router my not be DCHP enabled or it might not be assigning the IP addresses either.

I would do a reset and start all over with your security settings and see if that works. Worst case scenario you could always turn security off when your parents or others are there.

How to change Linksys wireless router?


When you get cable internet, the cable company provides you with a modem (usually). From the cable modem you can hook up the Linksys router with an ethernet cable and it will work just fine. Hook the router up to the desktop or laptop with another ethernet cable if you need to make changes to the router security or whatever. The router address is generally 192.168.1.1. YOu can type that address right into the internet address and you router page shoud show up. If you have been using the Linksys router with the phone line all you need is to connect it to the cable modem to work. An ethernet cable is like a telephone line with a fatter connecter.

Telephone connection


Unless you have dial up, you arent supposed to be losing any connection between the two. If you are, i would call them up and have them come out to fix it for free. That is completely rediculous.
