Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Router doesnt connect to internet

I have a Lynksys WRT54F v4 router that has worked fine for a while.
The router now connects to my pc on wireless and lights are on for the pcs.
However, I cannot connect to internet. The modem connects fine direct to internet.
The internet light on modem front does not come on and when pc connected via modem i cant access internet.
When I try to ping the default address I get a time out error.
When I type config, I dont see a specific router ip address, I just get:
1. IP Address
2. Subnet Mask
3. Default Gateway.
It may be that the ethernet connection ports are just on the fritz.

    I have the same problem except my internet light is on at the router but not conecting to the p.c. help please.

    try pinging 192.168.1.1 which should be the default gateway of your computer which is the router, unless you changed it. If that ping works try pinging a website such as www.google.com. That will try to help isolate where the problem is at. Try that and please reply back with you results

This sounds like a problem with your DSL modem, not the router. Try unplugging both devices and wait about 10 seconds. Plug in the modem first and wait about 30 seconds (at this point the Internet light should be on). Now plug in the router and wait another 30 seconds. This problem is normally due to the modem not getting sync. I would try plugging your laptop directly into modem if this doesn't work to see if you then have Internet. If not call your ISP.

I have a lynksys router. It will work with our mac, but if i try to get online with my pc, neiter will connect or if one is connected, it will disconnect. can i fix this


Hi,

I see that you are having issues with your network connection, I believe that you are trying to connect wireless on both systems.

* Check your Linksys for settings that limit the routers wireless connection, most wireless routers have an option on how many computers can connect wireless to the router, a wireless signal does not chose what OS to allow for a wireless connection.

* get in your Linksys Routers Setting page from IE or Firefox using your Default gateway IP from there on you can check your Routers settings, user name depends if your internet service provider changed the Routers user name and password but for a Linksys try admin / password or admin / admin for the User name and Password field.

Hope this helps you thanks and have a good day.

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.
