Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I have my cable modem connected to the router by the internet port and my desktop is running out of port 1 on my router. My desktop has the internet, but my router does not recognize that the internet is plugged into the router. My wireless devices can recieve the signal from the router, but their is not internet signal. It can only pick up the router. I tried to reset the router thinking that it would work, and linksys easy link advisor can't finish because it can't find a internet connection. Has anyone had this problem before? Please help because the linksys support won't help. They want to charge me to fix it. The wireless device I am trying to connect is a PS3.
Try to do a hard reset on the router. Hold down the button on the back of the router for 10 seconds. This will clear all of the settings out of its memory. Then try to connect again. If this doesnt work power down both your router and your cable modem. Let them sit for a minute and then plug in the modem and wait 30 seconds. THen plug in the Wireless router. The issue should resolve itself.

As last resort you might want to use a JTAG cable and debricking programming software. If your router is brikced or you want to change the firmware this cable can do it. The cable will connect to your parallel port and your wireless router so you can repair your router. They are about $5.95.

Testimonial: "Attempting this."
Do you have a connection in your modem?
if you do, you need to set up the linksys router in DHCP internet set up.
To have access to the linksys you need to go to:
The password it's admin
and the username in blank (no password)
change the internet setup to DHCP
Make sure you don't have the Same address for 192.168.1.1 or you modem cause if you do you'll need to change the ip address on the linksys router...

SOURCE: I have a linksys WRT54G,
1 disconnect all wires,including power from the modem and router.
2 Find reset button on router usually in the back,need a pen tip or paper clip to hold it in.
3 Hold in reset for 1 min.
4 Reconnect modem first,power up.
5 Reconnect router second, power up.
Try changing the ethernet wire from the modem to the router.
So your going to have your cable coax wire to the modem.Then a ethernet wire from the modem to the router,then a ethernet wire from the router to the computer.
Sounds like you may have one wire in the wrong place.
