    I have had the linksys wireless-G wrt54gs v.2 router for 3 years. I have one PC desktop and a Macbook and they work fine. Today I bought a new Macbook and I can't get it to connect through the router for a wireless connection. Ethernet works fine. When I try to connect to my network it tells me that my WEP password is incorrect or something. I know the password is correct so I can't figure this out.

I have never heard of such. Sound like your computer is tring to get you to enter the WEP key or Passphase to access the router.
If you don't have a WEP key or Passphase setup on the router then you should just be able to click "ok" or "enter" (with the field blank) and bypass this screen.

Also check your network properties on the computer that is giving you trouble. Open your network connection, right click your wireless connection and click on "properties". Check the tabs and make sure you don't have WEP or secure network highlighted in one of the check boxes.

I lost my cd of wrt54g2 v1 how i can install in my laptop


You don't need any kind of installation CD. Just open your wireless connection manager on the OS you're using in your laptop and connect to your wireless network.
If you need to configure the router, go to 192.168.1.1 in your web browser to open the router's configuration page.

WRT54G2 wired desktop fine, can't connect to wireless.


Hi Seth6025,

Try without using Wireless Encryption (password).

Try changing channels; default is 6; try 1 or 11.
Change your SSID: personalize it
SSID broadcast: Enable

Check the advanced wireless settings and make sure MAC filtering - DISABLED.

Reset the Linksys router by pressing RESET for 30 seconds should everything fails and re-configure. Firmware is another consideration BUT this is just a new release.

Regards,

Angel

Connecting wireless router to laptop computer


Try changing the channel on the router. It would be better to isolate the problem first by trying to connect to other wireless networks on your laptop or having someone's laptop connect to your home wireless network.

Cannot connect to the internet with my laptop


To connect to the router wirelessly using a Windows XP, right click on the wireless network connection icon on the lower right corner of the screen and choose view available wireless networks. Select your existing network and click on the connect button. If you are using Vista, go to network and sharing center of your control panel then select connect to a network. If you still having problems, please provide details of the problem like your Internet service provider and if there are already other computers online with your WRT54G2.

Linksys wireless adapter and linksys wrt54g2 router not seeing each other


its possible that the wireless card does not have the correct wireless settings.

Open the linksys wireless monitor on your wife's laptop.
Go to the profiles tab, highlight the default SSID then click on edit at the bottom. It will search for the wireless network, from the list of networks that it will show you, click the name of your wireless network, in if the network is secured you will be ask to put in your network key. Then click connect. Then it will say that you profile was successfully configured. then click connect to network. It will take you back back to the screen where you saw no association to the access point, check if you will now get a new message. On that same screen click the more info button at the upper left hand side. Check the IP address it should be 192.168.1.x. If you have that IP then you can test if you will be albe to get online.

if you still have any problem just reply to this post.
