Hi! Welcome to fixya!
You need to turn off first or disconnect LAN connection which is the cable connection before you can use the wireless connection. After that go control panel you need to setup internet connection and be sure to configure the IP address to automatic which the DHCP mode configuration then restart. That's it. Have nice day!

Computers have limited connection to linksys wrt54g although signal is full strength

Limited connectivity
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and then click Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.
Also try resetting the wireless router by turning off the power to the wireless router for a few minutes and the boot up your computers.

Cannot connect with laptop although signal strength says excellent. Intermittent problem. sometimes it works then drops connection. Won't even connect when laptop is next to router.


Please power cycle the router by unplugging / plugging the power cord.

Try changing channels; default is 6; try 1 or 11.
Change your SSID: personalize it
SSID broadcast: Enable

Check the advanced wireless settings and make sure MAC filtering - DISABLED.

Reset the Linksys router by pressing RESET for 30 seconds should everything fails and re-configure. Firmware is another consideration BUT this is just a new release.

Slow wireless connection

802.11b standard runs at 11Mbps. If you can only get 1Mbps from the router, you need to check your signal strength and your network card. If your wireless NIC in the laptop is only 802.11, you will max out at up to 2Mbps.

Second computer can't connect to the internet

I had a similar problem when I got my laptop. What I did was type (yours might be different because we have a wifi router plugged into a normal router, so try otherwise) into the internet URL address box. This takes me to the Wireless Router's domain page. I then click on 'Wireless' and then it asks me for a password, which I leave blank because I never set one up, and now I am in the Wireless settings menu. I then click 'Use as Access Point' and then 'Enable'. Then I close the browser.
I then check my Wireless connections on the laptop and can see the router there in the list. I double click this and also make sure the 'Automatically connect to this network' is enabled. I wait a few seconds for it to detect and connect.. "Local and Internet Access"!
I open the internet browser and I am on my Google homepage.

Your settings will be slightly different, but essentially the same.
Try that.
Good Luck!

Can't get to internet anymore

Try to remove the preferred networks on your Presario then try connecting again. If you have wireless security enabled on your router, you have to enter that. Make sure that the settings on your router is the same as your wireless adapter so that they can synchronize.

If you have difficulty with that, just ask me and I'll answer as soon as I can.
