Question about Linksys Wireless-G WKUSB54GS Kit

1 Answer

Setup wizard doesn't locate wireless router.

I had to change internet provider, so I had to get a different modem. The router stoped working, so I tried the setup disk the came with the router. I hooked it up like it said exept is says to connect the modem to the router with blue cable (I don't have). I used a regular ethernet cable instead and don't know if that could be a problem.

The problem is I go through the setup wizard and try to save my settings it wont let me. It says "The setup utility was unable to locate a wireless-g broadband router on your network. Please make sure your wireless-g broadband router is powered on and all cables are properly connected." It all hooked up right and the lights are on.

Any old ethernet cable should be fine. The setup disc is generally used only for initial setup to establish communications between router and pc, and to also configure your internet providers settings. You can access your router from your pc by going to http://192.168.1.1 and you can change settings in the router from there instead of using setup disc. If you insist on using the setup wizard disc you usually have to set your computer's ip address to a specific number and possibly reset router to default state (see manual or http://www.linksys.com).

    Since you already had a working setup, if you just replaced the modem and leave cabling as it was before when it was working, you should be able to just go in through your browser into the control panel of the router and change the particulars for your new internet provider (user name, password, etc...).

Moved router to another location would not connect.


Who is your Internet service provider at new location?

I think you should try to reset and reconfigure the router from the scratch.
Connect the computer directly to the modem and make sure that your Internet modem is working properly.
Connect the modem and computer to the router. Open the setup page of the router and change the settings of the router.
You can try this Linksys Router Setup website and I think it will help you.

1. you will have to contact your ISP
2. you will have to clear the router and use the setup CD and reconfigure the router

3.check with the router manufacture via their web site and see if there are and updates for your router.
4. you will need to check your firewall setting in the Windows Security settings.

Cant setup or connect to internet through router


Different ISPs require different configurations. If you have a Linksys router, such as the WRT54G, there are 2 ways on how you can configure it, either by running the Setup CD or by doing manual configuration. This particular router has its own web utility and you can access it by typing its IP addres on your web browser, ex. http://192.168.1.1. By default, it doesn’t have any username and its password is admin.

Once you’re inside the setup page, you can configure now the router for DHCP, PPPoE or STATIC IP settings. For DSL customers using a PPPoE account, some modem needs to be configured into BRIDGE MODE first and then the router will be set to PPPoE with the correct username and password (given by ISP). If your a DHCP account, modem doesn’t require any configuration. It will work with its default setting and the router would be set to DHCP. Once done, powercycle your devices to establish internet connection.

I'm having problems not only with registration but also connecting the router.


Hi,
Kindly follow the below steps to setup your router, this will help
LinkSys Router Setup Physical Setup of a LinkSys Router Each model of LinkSys router will differ slightly, but the general design is similar across all models. Therefore, the setup is similar across all models.
  1. Attach the antennas to the router (if your LinkSys router support wireless)d
  2. Plug the Ethernet cable from your broadband Internet provider into the port labeled "Internet"
  3. Plug another Ethernet cable into one of the available ports
  4. Plug the other end of that same cable into an Ethernet port on your PC
LinkSys Router Configuration LinkSys routers now ship with a Setup Wizard which is intended to simplfy basic configuration tasks.
We do not recommend the LinkSys Setup Wizard for two reasons:
  1. The Setup Wizard is not significantly easier that the regular configuration menus
  2. If you use the Setup Wizard, you will end up learning two interfaces for your LikSys router instead of just one
Instead, we recommend simply starting your web browser and jumping into the configuration.
Once your web browser is open, go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password.
setup-linksys-router.jpg
Logging in to a LinkSys Router
The username is either blank or "admin" and the default password is "admin".
Once you are past the login screen, you are able to access (and change) a plethora of configuration options for your router.
Don't be worried by the enormous number and variety of options, your LinkSys router ships with default settings that enable it to work right out of the box in most environments.
From here the configuration options that you choose are largely up to your own personal preference.
If this is a wireless router, we recommend that you consider setting an SSID to identify the router as your own and configuring WEP to encrypt your wireless traffic.

Let me know if this will help

Hi, i have wnr2000 and am trying to set it up. i'm at the setup wizard which says that i already have a valid internet connection. what does this mean and what do i do next?


Basically you need to sign up with an Internet Service Provider in your area. The ISP will advise you the type in modem/Internet connection you need for their service (ie. DSL or cable) and advise you or provide you with a compatible DSL or cable modem. The ISP will provide an installation disc or instructions to configure the modem so it connects with their Internet server.
The modem is then connected to the wnr2000 router's Internet/WAN port with a LAN cable.
If you have already configured the modem and connected it to the wrn2000 router and the setup wizard has detected that you already have a valid Internet connection (it has detected your TCP/IP address which your Internet Service Provider has given you - this IP address is your unique network address - it is similar to your house address in your street, in your suburb, in your state, and in your country). Just click OK and continue with the setup.

The modem's been changed and cannot locate the CD to the driver to connect to the internet. The model is DSL-G604T/AU V.A3.


Hi! your dlink dsl-604T is adsl router modem, you can access the setup page of your modem router by connecting your computer directly to the port1 of the modem router and the cable from your isp should be connected to the WAN port. u need to pull up the browser and type in at the url:192.168.1.1 and it will ask the username and password, by default the username is admin and the password is 1234 or leave it blank, but i suggest before u do this steps. u need to reset your modem/router. there is a reset button on the back of the router and press it for 20secs and then unplug and replug it after 10secs. after that u can pull up the setup page of the router.. to check the default gateway of the router, right click the network icon on the lower right of the task bar and select status and it will show the ip address, subnet and default gateway..

u need to know what internet settings u have with your internet provider, bcoz once u access the setup wizard it will ask u the type like auto-dhcp, pppoe, static etc.. if your isp gives u a username and pass to connect to internet u have to select pppoe or if u are given a static ip address setting u need to select static ip... just follow the setup wizard..

ADSL wireless router setup..


I am not sure if its the same config instruction with linksys modems...but usually you can configure it using the setup wizard or manually.

The setup wizard can be found in the installation CD when you bought the modem/router. just insert the CD and follow the instructions given at the screen.

For manual configuration...open your internet browser (IE or firefox) then type http://192.168.1.1 (or check the manual for the correct local ip of your modem) you will see the configuration page in the browser in were you will put the username, password, PPPOA, VPI...etc.

reply back if you need further info. hope this helps.

Current dlink basic want to use dling DI 514


If you want to use your former router, you just have to connect the previous router in between your modem and computer. Try turning off all the devices (modem, router and computer) for 2 minutes. Then turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to be stable then turn on the router. When the router lights are okay that is the time that you can turn on the computer and check the internet connection.

If the Internet connection still has not come back, you will have to reconfigure it for Comcast connection. You can try using the setup CD or access the setup wizard using 192.168.0.1. User name is admin and leave the password empty then run the wizard.

Disconnect the Modem... and then connect it up to the "Router" using the "Uplink" port and when connect ya Modem to the router... then connect another Ethernet cable from Router to same port on ya PC. Then simply use the network setup Wizard to set up an Internet Connection and connect up via ya router thru ya modem... generally works for me....
