Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)
I have pinged the router and still get "Replyed from" response, all lights are still on, but when I check my internet connection, my internet gateway is disabled and when I try to connect say, "connection failed!". Thanks for any help you can give. I've tried almost everything I can find online.
So you've done everything I've suggested already - and yup, it's definitely the router.
As I mentioned before, the DSL modem may well be quite fussy about the MAC address it sees, so if it's been successfully working with your PC, it might need 'refreshing' (normally done with a reboot) to get it to work with the router.
I'm running out of suggestions - would it cause any problems to carry out a factory reset on the Linksys router, and installing the latest firmware? Or even, perhaps try one of the many alternative firmwares that are available (I'm using DD-WRT - http://www.dd-wrt.com) and see if that works any better?
I've carried out all kinds of reconfigurations with my two WRT-54Gs, and they're quite resilient to being played about with... I really hope some of my suggestions help you get it talking to the internet again!
