Linksys switch to new pc

I am trying to load the linksys advisor onto a new pc to manage an existing home network. The PC immediately finds the internet connection, however Linksys advisor won't let me continue because it says it cannot find an internet connection. I have two laptops and this new pc successfully talking to the internet through the router, but the router software shows no connection.

    i dont know why you are want to use that software everythign you need is right in your web browser. all you need to do is use the web interface for the router by entering its default gateway ip address in your web browser.. will look like 192.168.2.254.......you can find this number by clicking start then run... type cmd... in the new window type ipconfig.... get the number in the defautle gateway and type that in the address bar on your web browser.. you will see the admin page to run your settings that you want to change in there.. have you tried that?

Have you tried going to the Linksys Forums and asking this question, I had similar issues when we moved house and the guys over there were most helpful.

If I have an admin account on my home network, why do I keep getting the message that an Admin account is required to run Linksys advisor?


Depending on the User Account control , You may be logged in as an administrator but not allowing administrative access to the program. Usually Right clicking on the application could reslut in a RUN AS administrator...That should allow you to run the advisor. By default Administrator or not, is you try and run something that requires an administrator access ( registry changes.eg ) It will deny this default..

I am trying to add a new PC to my home network, but I need to find my original netwok key and password from my Linksys G router but it's been so long. How can I find out from my existing system?


you can use a computer that is already connected to your network and open your browser to 192.168.1.1
this will prompt a login
assuming you have not change the default password it is admin and the user name is blank.
click on the wireless button and wireless security will show your wireless network password/passphase.

Are you trying to set up the router ? For this you don't need to use Linksys Easy link advisor. Easy links advisor has bugs in it.

My wrt150n router cannot see the internet which is working. when I start setup in easylink advisor it establishes a new connection but I cannot see or manage it in advisor. Any ideas


Well ! this easy link advisor is not a good software to manage the network. It has some bugs. Some times even if you are able to go on line , it will show you that the router is not online. If you call the Linksys technical support, you will not get any technical support for the Easy link advisor. Even the Linksys is also not using Easy link advisor. They have a new software now called as network magic.

If you are not able to go online using the router, then you can try to set up the router maually. Ou don't need any CD or Manual or any software.

I misplaced the installation and configuration CD and now have purchased a new computer. I can't get connected. Where can I purchase a new CD?


Go to: http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/home

Click on Support in the upper menu.

There are drop down menus for you to choose your product and you will be presented with all the download information for that product.

However, they also have this program with a free trial download that might help you:

And I have used their former Easy Connect Advisor but they no longer offer that free. I did find a download here:
http://linksys-easylink-advisor.software.informer.com/3.1/

But you may want to make sure you scan the file with your security software before you install it just to be safe. It appears to be safe.

Exception from HRESULT: 0x88980406


There are known issues with the Linksys EasyLink Advisor (LELA). It is a very buggy piece of software that ends up causing a conflict with windows manager as indicated by your specific 0x error code. It is supposed to take the hassle out of setting up your wireless network using Linksys devices, but as you can see this isn't always the case.

The best thing to do, if you are technically inclined, is to uninstall LELA and manually configure your wireless network or hire a teenaged geek to do it for you. If you cannot do this, then try the following (no guarantees):
1. Download the latest version of LELA at http://update.linksys.com/lela/install/lela.exe and save it to your desktop.
2. If you're using XP then go to Start >> Control Panel, click on "Add/Remove Programs", find "Liknsys EasyLink Advisor" and uninstall it. If using Vista, go to Start >> Control Panel, click on "Programs", click on "Programs and Features", find "Linksys EasyLink Advisor" and uninstall it.
3. Reboot your computer.
4. Reinstall LELA by clicking on the LELA file you downloaded in step 1.

Wireless - G router


If the Linksys is not yet configured use the desktop to put the CD in and follow instructions to add the Linksys Router to your existing network setup.

Once inside there are a few more steps to getting a desktop PC to see & network with a laptop PC within a router/wireless environment. Once the Linksys is setup you may want to repost something to get the computers talking to each other.

Take care...
