I'm not sure if your asking for the IP ADDRESS of your Linksys or the DEFAULT GATEWAY of that device because your router's ip address will be provided by your server or Internet Service Provider (ISP) depending on your service. There are two ways of obtaining an ip address first will be DYNAMIC, where your ip address changes all the time and STATIC where you are given specific ip addresses for example 192.168.0.1 -to 192.168.0.25. The easiest way to obtain those ip addresses, by the way, is to contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP)
example: AT&T, Roadrunner, Time Warner, etc....
But, if your looking for the DEFAULT GATEWAY for you to access your router's configuration, most of the time it is found underneath the router itself. For Linksys the Default Gateway is 192.168.1.1
You need to configure your router. For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings. Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router. Clickon wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It isyour password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router. Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
Stop and start over with Router Setup by using a paper clip to press router reset button. Now, with router connected via CAT-5 cable to a computer's NIC. On this computer, using IE or other web access, go to http://192.168.1.1 to access router web setup. Set the Wireless properties, such as SSID (Network Name) and Security properties, like WEP/WPA passwords. This password will be needed by all computers accessing this router's signal. At this point, your router should be putting out a signal identified by the SSID name, all other settings for the router should be set already to the point where it will work, like the IP addresses declared in the router setup. Best left alone, at least till it is up and running. It gets the network address from your Internet Provider, and they are the only ones that can give you an IP address.
Verified that the Internet connection is working good
- Now if your connected to the wireless network but unable to access a website try this:
- Open the control panel - Open the network connection - Right click on wireless networks (Choose properties) - Choose Internet protocol then click properties - Assign DNS Server address (Preferred DNS: 18.104.22.168, Alternate DNS: 22.214.171.124) - Leave the DCHP as obtain IP address
Connect your PC with a cable to the router. See if you can access the router configuration with Internet Explorer (or firefox...). To do this, you have to know the IP address of the router: it is in the documentation and is by default. You can find the info on the website of Linksys. On mine, the router IP address is 192.168.0.1. I type the IP address in the address bar in Internet Explorer (http://192.168.0.1) and I reach the router login. It may look hard to do, but if you do it once, you will understand the process and be able to troubleshoot your connection in the future.
I think that your IP address is now used by another computer. Once you reach the router configuration, you will be able to reserve your IP address, so no more problem to get to Internet. See the manual for the router login and password.
The main reason why you have this error message because your computer is not getting a valid IP address from teh wireless network, and the reason why its not getting a valid IP address is the wireless security or sometimes called WEP/WPA kay are not type in to the correct place, If you have a WEP enable on your wireless network you will have two option on the Linksys WLAN monitor where you can type in teh security key, you will see two boxes there when you try to connect to the secured network one says Passohrase and one says WEP key1 and if yuo have a wireless key that has a total of 10 or 26 key character you need to type that on the WEP key1 box leave the passphrase blank...But if it still didn't work you can contact this number for help 1-877-787-8749....
to confirm if your Network adapter's assigned IP, subnet, Gateway & DNS
Start > Run > cmd
at cmd prompt type: ipconfig /all
look at the parameters given to your Network Device that is connected to the router (IP, Subnet, Gateway & DNS Servers.
Verify those addresses if they are reachable by pingging. Check your IP, Gateway, then check for the DNS Addresses. Type cmd prompt: ping ip_address << do not omit the periods between the numbers.
See if there are replies from those addresses. if you get Request timed out, tell us here which part you get one. if you can receive a reply from those addresses (gateway & DNS Servers) definitely you are already connected to the internet. Just check your Browser's connection setting.
Sounds like the router may need a firmware update as the DHCP service is failing to run correctly.
You can however just use a static ip address.
First of all find out the network address in use.
eg. 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.2.1
to find out, - start menu - run - cmd - ok - ipconfig
Log on to the client computer as Administrator or as Owner.
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Click Network and Internet Connections.
Click Network Connections.
Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties.
Click the General tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the This connection uses the following items list, and then click Properties.
In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box, click Obtain an IP address automatically (if it is not already selected), and then click OK.
Note You can also assign a unique static IP address in the range of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254. For example, you can assign the following static IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway:
IP Address 192.168.0.2 Subnet mask 255.255.255.0 Default gateway 192.168.0.1
The default IP Address for Linksys routers is 192.168.1.1. You may want to try accessing your router's configuration by typing this IP Address in your browser. If you have any additional troubles, please let me know.
