Try upgrading your firmware on the router.  Go to linksys.com and navigate to their downloads page and search for your router.  The firmware is the operating system (like your computer may have Vista or Win XP) and it needs to be updated.  Try that to see if it works.

Unplug your router and plug it back in.  A power cycle seems to fix 99% of this type of problem.

    any recent changes?

    you will need to log into your router with a cable to see if you get an ip address.  if so you can check your wireless settings.  if not you will need to reset your router to original config.

Possible reason why you lost the connection with your DSL line is that the router's configuration was changed. To reconfigure your Linksys router, you need to connect your computer wired to the router.
Open a Web Browser (IE, Firefox etc.) on the wired computer and type http://192.168.1.1 and press Enter. On the Username box leave it blank and on the password box type in admin. You will then see the router's configuration page. Under the Basic Setup tab you will see Internet Connection type on the left side of the screen. Click on the down arrow button and select PPoE, type in the Username and password that was provided by your DSL Internet service provider. Once your done click on the Save setting button on the bottom of the screen. Click on the Status tab on the top of the screen. Click on the Connect button and check if you will have an IP address on the Internet IP address option. If a valid IP address is present then you should have an internet connection then.

I'm trying to connect my router and nothing seems to be working


To open the set up page of the router of the router , one of your computer should be able to go online through the router.
It could be a wired computer or wireless computer.
If it is a wireless computer then make sure that the computer is connected to your own wireless network.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router using a wireless computer.
OK ! Now you have a computer online through the router and you want to open the set up page of the router.

First step is check the IP address of the computer.
Check the IP address and the Default gateway on the computer.

For Windows XP

START ==> RUN ==> type in cmd in the RUN box==> click OK or Hit ENTER . You will see a black window that is a command prompt . In the black window type in " ipconfig " ==> and Hit ENTER on your key board .

For Windows Vista and Windows 7

click on START ==> type in cmd in the start search box ==> enter ==> you will see the black window. Type in " ipconfig "you will see a lot of information. Try to find out the local area connection IPv4 address .

Note down the Default gateway number.

For MAC OS

Click APPLE icon in the right top corner of the computer. Go to System Preferences ==> go to Network ==> you will find the option Built in Ethernet or Airport whichever is connected. If you go to that you will find the Ip address and router Address.

The default gateway is the IP address of your router.

This IP address of the router will be used to open the set up page of the router

Now you got the IP address of the router.Open the Internet Browser ( Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari )

In the Address bar of the browser Type the IP address of the router.

Do not type http:// or www just type in the IP address only.

It will ask you for the user name and the password of the router.

This is the User name and the password of the router and NOT the wireless password. On a wireless router, there are 2 passwords. One is to access the router and the other one is for the wireless network.

For most of the routers the default password will be " admin " . for some routers the default password is " password ". For Linksys router the default password is admin and no user name.

Can not access router setup page. IP is to be 192.168.1.102 , says can not find. This is the main computer on network, other's are wireless.


The number 192.168.1.102 must be your computer's IP address.If you want to access the router set up then You will need the Ip address of the router.
Is your computer connected to the router with the cable. if not then connect the computer to the router and check the IP address and default gateway on the computer.
Once you have the default gateway number use that number to open the router set up.
Generally the Linksys router IP address is 192.168.1.1.
Try this number.

WRT54G linksys router


Hi,
The first thing I would do is check to make sure the desktop with XP has the network card set to "obtain an IP address automatically"

if it is set to obtain an ip address automatically, I need to know the following:

What is the IP addresss of the router?
What is the IP address of the Vista computer?
What is the IP address of the xp computer?

You can find the ip address by going to start, then run, then type cmd and hit enter. at a command prompt type: ipconfig and hit enter.
