Loss the setup CD-ROM

A setup CD isn't needed to setup the linksys wireless router.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I am using linksys wireless g broadband router and i cant connect to the internet it says low connection or no connectivity

I believe you would have a cable connection and no a telephone connection because if you have the second one this router will not be of use to you.
Assuming you are using a cable provider:
You could see if you are following all the steps from that manual in order to configure it correctly.
Kind regards

I am trying to connect my HP Pavillion dv600 to the internet using a wired connection and i cant, please help!

Make sure the computer is connected to any port from 1 - 4 on the router.

The modem should be connected to the WAN/Internet port of the router.

On your computer, access the setup page by using a web browser. In the address bar, type

Leave the username blank and then the password is admin.

The settings on the router differs depending on your ISP.

If you have cable connection, the Internet connection type should be Automatic configuration or Obtain IP address automatically (DHCP).

If you have DSL connection, usually the internet connection type is PPPoE. You will need to enter the username and password provided by your ISP.

If you are not sure of your connection type, contact your ISP.

Hope this helps!

My Linksys WRT54GC suddenly stopped working. The router has no power light but the wireless and internet light are green.

Sounds like a PSU failure possibly.

If you can still get wired internet then its not dead. Its even possible the power LED is pooched if you can still use the wired connections.

Can't get a wireless connection from my Linksys WRT54GC router

I think you have the router setup to not broadcast the SSID. Go to your router settings to change this option. By not broadcasting, it enhances security for your wireless network, because it looks like there's no network. I hope this helps!

Did you buy the router in France? Verify you current firmware version from the router's interface (accessible via, I believe the current version available in English is 1.00.6. Download the firmware and flash it on the router. Here's the link:

WRT54gc not connecting to internet.

I need more details, but I recommend that you download the manual and go step-by-step through all the settings. I trashed my Netgear and that is what I did to fix.

I found the manual for the Linksys WRT54GC (and many others) at this location "" (other locations want a pint of blood before they share the document).

Chances are you need to start with a factory reset (find a paperclip and press-hold the recessed button -- i don't know where), then attach the ethernet cable from your PC to a spare port. Open the browser and point to If that does not work, try (notice the 's' in https versus http).

Once you get the admin screen with a login prompt -- you are probably going to be successful.

The factory login is probably userid: admin with password: admin. Check the manual that you downloaded.

Getting the ISP information correct is crucial for completing the admin. You need to visit their website for the DNS server address, subnet mask and gateway. There are other configurations, but stick with this until you know it works.

Now you can connect the cable modem to the WAN port (not one of the four-eight LAN ports for your computers)

Now, with another browser session, point to a public IP: I like google -- so I would use,

If that works you are done. Connect more PCs and check if you need to setup the firewall. Usually the factory default is what you want for max security. If you need special "ports opened" for games, video streaming, etc. then you should post another question as that can be another night of Q & A :-))

I hope that works for you!

More commentary follows ....

As for my Linksys, I had a nightmare with getting a needed firmware upgrade while it was under warranty and when tech support got done, they authorized a return-repair.

Helo top experts

i assume that your computer can access the internet while hardwired to the wireless-g router. if so, you just need to connect your wireless computer to the wireless signal of the wireless-g router. you just need to scan or view the available networks detected by your wireless computer and select the wireless name (ssid) of your wireless-g router. make sure to enter the correct wireless security (network key) if it's enabled on your router. i hope this'll help you but if you can't still access the internet wirelessly, provide the specific model number of your wireless-g router, specify if you're using a laptop or a wireless desktop, and the brand and model of your wireless card/adapter
