Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)

1 Answer

Linksys LELA software screws up connections to all previous cons

I bought a nice new Linksys wireless router, and just went ahead and installed it
on my WinXP pro Dell Vostro 1700. It wanted to install LELA, and I let it, after
it assured me this was a marvelous improvement.

I went home and tried to use my other router and it didn't work, wouldn't go, wanted
me to plug into it and reconnect. This is a pain, and is irresponsible design.

The alternative it offered was to run services.msc, then start the Wireless Zero Configuration
service, THEN go to the advanced settings on wireless network connections AND click
the wireless tab, AND tell it to use Windows to configure the laptop.

But you have to do this EVERY TIME you comeback from hibernate, or restart or whatever.
This is irresponsible design and I'm one pissed0off customer.

I had the same problem with the same router and a new HP pavillion. I had to go through all of the services one by one and turn on anything that was remotlly connected to the wireless dependancies. Sometimes a reg cleaner or one of the many utilities we use to speed up our machines, stops essential services. The only way to make sure you did everything you could, is to go line by line in the services menu, or just turn them all on, to see if that clears it up.I tried everything from bios to drivers, and that did nothing, it ended up being one of the services I restarted. To be honest I really think that once we start using hardware and software from so many different companies, the "bugs" come out. I like linksys, but about a year ago, with a brand new wrt54g, it stopped working after a MSFT update. Also the tcip settings may have been altered. I found this on a forum last time I had the problem, it may help you so I'll post itIn the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

Linksys router will not connect with motorola 2210 modem


Your problem may be timing.

Make sure you have all your cables connected correctly.

Do not have power to either the modem or router.

Plug in you modem and watch the lights go to work. Wait for them to settle down. Now plug in your router, again watching the lights. It should work now.

You can download Linksys' LELA program to monitor the network. Shows green lines to your computers, etc. when working and red lines when not. It will also give your status and make suggestions if you loose your connection.

Good Luck

Wireless router is not working


Go to Here for Linksys EasyLink Advisor (LELA). With this software you can monitor the routers status and troubleshoot.

Most trouble shooting involves disconnecting the power to the cable modem and the wrt54 router for about 10-20 seconds. Then plug in the modem until it lights, then plug in the router. The Advisor will then get a new address.

It also shows a graphic picture of your whole system.

I have a wrt54 and use this whenever I have a problem. I fix it then turn it off.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck

Internet connection


I think you have the software LELA (linksys easylink advisor) installed in your computer. Sometimes if it's not updated you it will prompt that you're not connected to the internet though you have internet access.

Solutions:
1) update your LELA - go to linksys.com/download
there's a field there that says enter model/serial number - just type in LELA - then click enter
- on the next page - click on get downloads then select version 3.1
- below there's an option that says download and drivers and you can see there LELA 3.1 just click on the download link and save it in your desktop folder

note: it's quite a big file - more than 200Mb
- before you install it make sure you uninstall the old LELA in your computer
- to uninstall it - just go to add/remove programs then remove linksys easylink advisor

hope this helps... Tech what you want

WRT400N LELA software not working


Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPPOe.

Exception from HRESULT: 0x88980406


There are known issues with the Linksys EasyLink Advisor (LELA). It is a very buggy piece of software that ends up causing a conflict with windows manager as indicated by your specific 0x error code. It is supposed to take the hassle out of setting up your wireless network using Linksys devices, but as you can see this isn't always the case.

The best thing to do, if you are technically inclined, is to uninstall LELA and manually configure your wireless network or hire a teenaged geek to do it for you. If you cannot do this, then try the following (no guarantees):
1. Download the latest version of LELA at http://update.linksys.com/lela/install/lela.exe and save it to your desktop.
2. If you're using XP then go to Start >> Control Panel, click on "Add/Remove Programs", find "Liknsys EasyLink Advisor" and uninstall it. If using Vista, go to Start >> Control Panel, click on "Programs", click on "Programs and Features", find "Linksys EasyLink Advisor" and uninstall it.
3. Reboot your computer.
4. Reinstall LELA by clicking on the LELA file you downloaded in step 1.

WRT54G router


You're not alone with this issue - the page is not working now:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1339082-linksysfix

While I'm not familiar with ELA, Linksys' own site has support pages for LELA, Linksys Easy Link Advisor: and you can download EasyLink software from this page, which is intended to help automate setup. Your model is listed there. I hope this is what you are looking for and/or will be of help to you.

Intermittent Enabling


First you can try to uninstall and reinstall the driver of the wireless adapter on that desktop. Unplug and re-plug the wireless card. If it is a wireless PCI card, make sure the antenna is tightly screwed on. Install just the driver of the wireless card and not the utility/software that came with it. You can also try to change the channel on the wireless router by going to the router's user interface. If you're on channel 6, choose channel 11 and save the settings. Then power cycle the router, unplug the power for 30 seconds then plug it back in. Check now if you can connect wireless.
