Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

I have a wrt160n router hooked up to a desktop computer and a

Starband modem. My wireless connection works fine but my internet explorer from my desktop that is hardwired to the router works very intermittently. One moment it will be fine and the next moment it says that it cannot display the web page. I check the linksys status and it says that the connection is fine.
Oddly enough when I unlug the router for a few seconds and plug it in again the Tx light on the starband modem starts flashing and it works fine for a few minutes. Then it dies again. Any ideas? Thank you!

Sound like you have a bad network card on the PC or the router ports have gone bad.
Have you tried different ports on the router?
The problem could also be in the ethernet cable.
Try another cable and see if that makes any difference.

Unable to connect to internet through Linksys WRT160N router. Can unplug it and internet is fine. Tried power cycling the modem and router. Linksys comes up with all lights flashing and will not...


If I understand your problem correctly, you are able to connect to the Internet when you hook the computer directly to the modem, but not when the router is connected to the modem.
If this is the case, then you need to do a power drain on the modem. Power cycling the modem is not enough to clear the NVRAM of the MAC address of your computer. You have to unplug the power cord of the modem for 15 to 20 minutes in order for the NVRAM to reset and allow the modem to recognize the MAC address of the router.
After the modem has been unplugged for 15 to 20 minutes, disconnect the power cable from the router and then connect router to the modem using the Ethernet cable.
Next with the router power cord still disconnected, plug in the power cord of the modem and allow the modem to sync to the network.
Once the modem is finished with its start-up, plug-in the power cord of the router and let it sync to the network.
After the modem has completed its start-up, it should now be connected to the internet.
Good Luck

We are on Starband Satellite internet. Have windows programs , both vista and xp. We have the linksys G wireless internet system. How do we install it ?? So far, when we put it in, nothing works. No...


Yes you can but it is not as easy as using a router with a cable or dsl connection.
The 360 modem requires the Mission Control software in order to run properly so you can't just hook it straight to a router.
What you need to do is use an old computer to sit in the corner and act as a router(kind of) and then connect it to a real router.
When your finished you won't even need a monitor for it. You will need either two network cards in it or 1 network card and a usb port to hook it up to the 360 modem. Make sure network cards are also working correctly. Install the starband mission control software and make sure it is working correctly.

In Winxp go to network connections and right click on the one hooked to the starband modem and click properties. Now click on the advanced tab and check "Allow other network users to connect through this computers Internet connection.
You can plug the other network cable straight into a switch and this computer will hand out ip addresses through ICS(Internet connection sharing) built into winxp.

You can also get a wireless router and change the ip address of it to match the range that ics is handing out and disable the dhcp server so that you don't have two things handing out ip addresses.
If you use the web accelerator you will have to put it in the browser of each computer that you will be using (in the browser under proxy). It will be something like 192.168.0.1:9877.

Also make sure your running a firewall on your little router-computer. If the computer is running winxp professional you can take the monitor off and use remote desktop connection to check on things or to control it. Or search the Internet for VNC.

LInksys wrt160n v2 wireless router not connecting to internet


Most cable companies will only allow 1 active device at a time conneceted to the cable modem. When ever you change what is connected to the cable modem you must always cycle the power/reset your cable modem.

When you are reseting the units, always rset the cable modem first, wait until it boots back up then reset the router. If that doesn't fix the poblem then it may be a configuration problem.

I forgot to ask if you are cable or DSL.

Hope this helps
