Maintain wireless connection at school, is ok everywhere else...


There are some points to consider: 1. It could be that your computer is restricted from the school's wireless access point. 2. It could also be that the wireless adapter is old and might be needing an upgrade. 3. You could also try to re-type the school's wireless password in your computer is there is any.

I try to plug in my router so i could have wireless internet in my house and it worked. however i tried to change the name of the network because it was "default" and I did change it but i messed...


First, reset your router on the back by inserting a paperclip into the reset button. Then allow your router to reset. Also you may want to reset your modem to get it all on the same page. Next connect the modem and router. Go through the process of changing the network name again, but make sure you use a Wired computer to the router. If you use a wireless connection you will not maintain the connection when you make the change.

When the change has been made, reconnect all wireless devices. You may need to unplug both your modem and router after making the change to get them to communicate properly again.

Able to detect other wireless networks (eg Neighbor's), but unable to detect wireless router's signal. Wireless signal, however, is detected by other computers, and therefore is transmitting.

My wireless network on 2 computers falls away


What's happening is that one of your computers is online and when the other computer is used to go online at the same time, it takes the internet connection away from the first computer.... this is a common problem.
Here is the solution.
1. Turn off all computers, router and modem and anything else on your network (printers, etc).
2. With an ethernet cable connected between the router and modem, TURN ON ONLY THE ROUTER and let it cycle up.
3. Turn on your MODEM and let it cycle up. If you do this procedure in this order, your modem will "find" your router first and your router can then assign addresses to all computers while maintaining the proper connection to the internet...
You should now be able to share internet without the drop out.
Keep a copy of this just in case your power goes out and you need to reset.

No conection to the internet


This is not a solution it is a request for information please do not rate this (yet anyway). The answers provided below may generate more questions. If you want me to help we are a team attempting to solve this issue. You are the hands and eyes of this team and only what you communicate here and do based on instructions will assist me in applying that information to an acceptable solution for you.

To connect a router to the internet you must configure it according to your internet security providers (ISPs) requirements where they permit such connections.

Can you provide a link to your ISP's support or help website?

If not can you provide the name of your ISP and the geographic area your service is located in (such as city and state assuming as your profile indicates you are in the US)?

Can you confirm your router's manufacturer and model as Linksys WRT54GS?

Can you look on the bottom probably on a label and find a Version number for your router and report it here?

Do you have a computer with a wired ethernet connection to test the internet connection before attempting to utilize the wireless capabilities of your router? Are you willing to do so to provide feedback to me as to the success of the router's internet configuration?

Please indicate if you you want to discuss securing the wireless connection? (This may be a wise decision if you do not want your neighbors using your internet connection and/or accessing your computers publicly shared folders, if you have any -- this is especially important if you do not intend to use the wireless capabilities for all the previous reasons.)

To do this you will need to provide the manufacturer and model
of each the Wireless Adapter or the computer with a built-in
wireless adapter you want to connect to your network?

Upon receiving that information we can discuss the options to secure the wireless connections to your system. These will allow you to make decisions on options as to what you are willing to do and maintain to secure your internet connection.
