Well...

For your firmware question. DDWRT is a great choice for your product. I used to have one, and this is what I use. I do however suggest that you do not adjust the Tx or Rx power. This can decrease the life of your router.

As with all 3rd-Party Firmware, it is possible that your device can become "bricked" or defective, during the install process or after use. Please consider this before flashing.

Let us know about any bumps
Good Luck

IF you mean "File Sharing" as in your own network of PC's on your network, then all you need to do is turn off sharing option within windows. Your router will not set sharing your folders, drives, printers, etc.

Check your windows setting in "Networks", then "Sharing" and set the appropriate options for your needs.

Hope that helps.

I need to use my telstra thomson TG782T modem on a different network how do i reconfigure it??


You need to contact your 3rd party service provider for the configuration settings for their network.
If you cannot change the settings on the Thomson modem then maybe the firmware is set to Telstra's network and cannot be changed. In this case you need to use the recommended modem suggested by your 3rd party service provider.

Show me how to connect linksys wireless


Hi

The Router configuration is not that much difficult, only few thing you have sure,
1) Correct ADSL Connection User name & password,
2) Chose unique ip address in All host.

Follow the mention bellow instruction to configure and connect to Wifi Router,

  • Plug the network cable ( Mine was Blue ) which comes with the Router Box pack to your computer. The other end goes into any of the Router Ethernet Port ( 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 )
  • Now type in 192.168.1.1 in IE or Firefox or any browser. You will prompted for password which is admin. You must be logged into Linksys Router.
  • Now since your ADSL modem is also having the same IP , we will change the IP address for WRT54G2 Router to 192.168.5.1
  • Under Setup >Basic Setup look for Network Setup and Change Router IP. Change to 192.168.5.1 and Save changes.
  • Since the IP has changed you will need to close the Browser.
  • Sometimes the IP doesnt change automatically. Do a IPCONFIG / RELEASE and then IPCONFIG / Renew

I have a modem cable connection with time Warner cable but router isn't connecting to modem what can I do


Hello,
I install Linksys routers all the time. Usually the first thing I do, is update the routers firmware. Many times I find that if the Linksys router doesn't automatically get a connection from DHCP, updating the firmware usually solves it.

To update the firmware:
Connect just to the cable box so you have an active internet connection.
1. Go to: http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54G2/download
2. Select your router version (can be found on the sticker near the model number) and download the latest firmware to a spot you will remember.
3. Now connect the router to your cable modem and computer.
4. Access your routers configuration page (If you don't know the address try: http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1).
5. Log-in - if you haven't changed the username/password the default should be a blank username with the password "admin".
6. Click "Administration"
7. Click "Firmware Upgrade"
8. Click "Browse" and choose the firmware file you downloaded in step 2.
10. Click Upgrade. Be patient and let it do its thing.

See if you connect after that. If not, let me know and I will walk you through the next steps.

Regards,
KYTechnology

After turning the power off for about 1 hour I am unable to connect via my wirless router. I can by pass the router to connect to the internet.


Make sure you update your wireless router firmware..
Use link below to update

http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-ca/wireless/lbc/WRT54G2

Please note:

Linksys is known for alot of problems with there firmwares causing tons for problems ..

I use a linksys wireless router my self & had to unplug the router every 2 to 4 days because it would stop any computers to go on the internet.
I flashed my firmware and put in a 3rd party firmware that has never caused any problems and it gave me tons of features that your linksys firmware did not.

If you are a advanced user you can flash your firmware and put in non-linksys firmware. Not all routers can accept this firmware but you can search up your router model and version to see. Make sure you read all the how to install and all the warnings .. Keep in mind there is a chance no matter if you followed the instructions exactly that it could destroy your router. But the chance is low.

Setup linksys wrt54g2 broadband router with prolink h9200 modem


You probably will need to make some configuration changes in the Linksys router, or in your computer, or both. Your are correct that you connect the Linksys WAN connection to the LAN connection of the modem. If your connection type is PPPOE, you will need to set that up in the Linksys with the username and password provided by your ISP, so the modem will allow you to login and connect to the internet. If that is how you were connecting to the modem with your computer, you will need to configure a new LAN connection in the computer in order to connect to the Linksys. You can then configure the Linksys through your web browser to connect to the modem.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

USR 5461 can't be configured


Verify 1st if you can still communicate with the router, if your running WIndows go to the command prompt and type ipconfig, check your default gateway address(192.168.x.x) then type ping(space)192.168.x.x if your getting replies your still lucky that means the firmware was just incomplete and to complete this without accessing the configuration utility, you need a tftp server installed on yuor computer to load the firmware of the router, check if your router manufacturer has a recommended tftp server, if not download any tftp server software from 3rd party manufacturer such as linksys or netgear, dlink. When you open the tftp software it will normally prompt you to enter the following information - ip address of the device you want to upgrade, password and the ocation of the file you need to load on the device(in this case the firmware(.bin) that you downloaded).

Hope this will help you get your router uo and running,

Regards.

Can't see the folders after restarting SS400-e


If you check their website, you will find:
Upgrading from a previous version of the firmware (to version 1.4) is a “data destructive” process.
it is strongly recommended that you first backup your existing data to another system in your environment. It is also recommended that you understand your current configuration of users, groups and shares to be able to recreate this under the 1.4 firmware.
