Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.

connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
good luck!!

Wireless connection to the internet

This problem may occurs due improper bandwidth from the service provider or your system may be affected by virus which continuously send data to internet which chock-up the bandwidth. So first report this problem to your service provider that you are not getting proper bandwidth and so you are not able to surf. one more thing you can do to check you bandwidth is goto and click on speed test and check your bandwidth with any of four server location.

Need to add Linksys WRT54G-TM wireless router with Linksys SPA 2102 phone adapter

your SPA2102-R seems to have one ethernet connection and one internet connection.
your WRT54G-TM seems to have one internet connection and 4 ethernet connections.

What you are trying to achive is; plug a ethernet cable into the ethernet connection on your SPA2102-R then plug the other end into the internet port of the WRT54G-TM

hope this helps, I have assumed that you intend to use a DSL broadband supplier not ADSL.

if you are changing service from DSL to ADSL then your WRT54G-TM needs to be first in line configured and working. then plug the internet port from the SPA2102-R into any of the WRT54G-TM ethernet ports.

Connection drop-outs

Is your laptop wireless adapter a compatable brand. It doesn't necessarily mean the router is bad, you may even be getting RADIO interference from a cordlees or a cell phone in it's path. Do you have the capability to plug a cat-5 cable directly into your laptop from the router when you lose wireless? Check the wireless channels and see about changing the channel on your cordless phone too. May not work, just a hunch.

Good Luck

Not able to get on internet wired

When you say you can get on wireless with your laptop does that mean---
You can connect to the router or
You can connect to the internet and get web pages such as google or fixya?

If you can get to google and fixya then the issue is not the router setup to the internet. Otherwise let me know you need help setting up router access to the internet. There will be more questions before I can give you directions to complete that.

When you say cable hookup for the laptop do you mean an ethernet cable to the router? (these cables have wider connectors that the phone wires and connectors -- used for phones and modems) If not what kind of cabling to where? (some installations permit connection via either one ethernet port OR one USB port to their equipment. -- note the OR if you have the router attached to the ethernet port you may be required to move the desktop from the USB port to the router using an ethernet connection (network adapter and cable). This might require the purchase of additional hardware (a network adapter for the PC and an ethernet cable -- if you provide the manufacturer and model of the desktop it will probably be possible to determine if your desktop has a network adapter already)

If you are using an ethernet cable to the router the following are probably items to check.

Can you swap ethernet cables (with a spare) to assure it is not the cable?

Can you hook your laptop or another computer (maybe a friend's) to the existing cable to assure it is good? (you will need to turn off wireless on the laptop to use it, if you know how)

Try switching ports the cable is plugged into on the router to see if that changes anything? (try the same with a known working machine possibly from a friend)

If there appears to be a cable issue perhaps you could test it on a firend's machine and his network to be sure.

Verify the proper installation of the network adapter in the desktop computer.

By testing it on a friends network, if possible?

Depending on what you find there could be additional questions and instructions to purchase additional items, setup drivers for you existing equipment, or a number of other things. Primarily this first set of questions is to attempt to isolate the problem and focus on the solution applicable to your specific situation.
