The only computer I have is a Dell Insprion E1505 laptop and it is
connected to a "COMCAST" cable modem. Windows XP, not Vista is
installed. I purchased a LINKSYS WRT54G wireless router. I installed
the setup disk and connected the modem to the router, and the router to
the computer as step one, but when step two had me disconnect the
router from the laptop so it could connect via wireless network, it
just says "easylink advisor could not establish a wireless connection
with the router two laptops, a desktop PC and my son has Xbox live. I recently bought
the Linksys wireless-g router with speed boost and that didn't work. If
any of the laptops were on, the other wouldn't work and my son's Xbox
live would lag. I was thinking about exchanging it for the Linsys
wireless-N broadband router but then I read the reviews and they were
horrible. I need something of that sort but something that isn't known
for being unreliable and dying. I bought the Turtle Beach X41 Headset, and it is causing some problems
with my wireless connection. Due to a number of reasons, it is not
possible to directly hook up my 360 to my modem. So, if I bought a new
router that can operate on a 802.11a frequency, would that help or not?
My current router is a Linksys Wireless G, 2.4GHz, router. Microsoft
has said that an 802.11a frequency router could fix problems with other
wireless electronics. If it would help, which router should I buy? I've
read a few reviews for the Linksys WGA54AG 802.11a, and everyone says
it doesn't work good. Any suggestions on another brand i tink with these you can do some thing
If you are unable to connect your laptop wireless to your Linksys wireless access point/router, the easiest and fastest way to get going is to reset your router to the factory defaults. This will make your router work like the day you bought it.
There are 2 steps involved Reset your router, Setup/Secure a new router
Reset your router:
Unplug your DSL/Cablemodem from power (not your access point/router) Leave this unplugged for now
On the rear of your Linksys router you will find a small RESET button
With the power still on the router, Press and hold (with a pin/pen tip) the RESET button for 30 seconds.
Release the RESET button a wait 15 seconds for the router to reboot
Unplug your Linksys router from power
Plug your DSL/Cable modem back in to power
Wait 1 minute for the modem to boot up
Be sure the ethernet (cat5) cable from your modem is securely plugged into the WAN port on the back of your Linksys router. This is usually labeled WAN or Internet above the jack
Plug your Linksys router back into power.
You will now be able to connect to the internet with your wireless device. I would advise that you follow the next steps in securing your wireless network.
Setup/Secure a new router Log into your router
Type192.168.1.1 into your web browser and hit enter
In the login fields (case sensitive):
Once in the web interface for your router
Click Wireless tab - Basic Wireless Settings
Find the Wireless Network Name (SSID) field
change this to your new network name (this is the name you will see when you connect through your wireless device)
Find the Wireless Channel field
Change this from 6 (default) to 1 or 11
Click on Wireless Security
Find the Security Mode field
Choose WPA2 - Personal
WPA Algorithmchoose AES
WPA Shared Keytype in your new password you will use to connect to your network
Click Save Changes and your router will now reboot. You will now need to enter in that same password (WPA Shared Key) when you first connect with your laptop to your wireless network Magoo
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router. You will needthe name of your wireless network ( SSID) and the wireless network key or passphrase. You are using E1000 router. This is new series of routers from Linksys. If you are using the security type WPA/WPA2 mixed then use only the WPA personal and TKIP. now go to X-box and try to connect to the wireless.
1) Connect your laptop (or another computer if possible) to the router
using a network cable. You should then be able to see your
configuration info. Make sure that the computer you are using to
connect (wired) to the router is set up to use DHCP. Once in there,
depending on what you find, you might be able to fix it yourself.
2) Factory reset the router and go through the setup options as if it were brand new.
Your wired network adapter will talk to a wired router without a driver for the router on your computer. Your wireless adapter likewise will talk to your wireless router without a driver for the wireless router on your computer. Your wired and wireless adapters however do require drivers and the wireless adapter can require configuration. Please provide the manufacturer and model of your computer so I can learn about your wireless adapter and we can work to get it connected to the router.
Do you currently have your router connected to your internet service providers connection and do you have another wired or wireless computer successfully using this device to access the internet?
