Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)
Hi, I wastrying to configure my new LINKSYS WRT54GS wireless router through the installation CD. I have connected the ethernet cable from mode to router's "internet" port..and then the blue ethernet cable (that comes along with router) from router's port 1 to my laptop's ethernet port. At step 5 during installaion, i get this error 321 saying ethernet not connected, even though the conecton was fine. There is nor problem with the ethernet adaptor of my laptop, as the internet works just fine if I conect it with modem directly wthout the router. I have tried all the standard troubleshooting techniques like restarting router after 60 secs and restarting the modem after 30 sconds..etc. When I connect the router, I was able to login to the SETUP page 192.168.1.1...I have enabled "mac cloning" under SETUP...the subnet mask was 255.255.255.0 and ip address 192.168.1.1. There was another field for DNS server.I tried giving 192.168.1.1 for DNS server but was rejected. How do I get this router working? What do I need to do? Can you let me know the reason for error 321 even as the ethernet is connected and working fine? Is manual configuration a solution? If so, ca you help me with what to fill out manually in the setup page? Thanks a bunch!
Dont go with the error , i came across such instances on a few occasions while users were installing it from CD . (Sounds lamme?right)
Try doing the set up manually , by accessing the web Gui of router .
The GS comes set to 192.168.1.1 as its factory default and with its built-in DHCP server enabled. So all you'll need to do is plug in a client that's set to obtain its IP address information automatically, maybe do a DHCP release / renew (or reboot your client computer), and enter the default password into the login box that pops up. If all goes well, you'll get the main Setup screen.
The Internet Configuration Type selector automatically refreshes the browser screen to present settings appropriate to the choices of Automatic Configuration - DHCP, Static IP, PPPoE, PPTP and Heartbeat Signal (for Australian users) Internet connection types.
MAC address cloning gets its own page in the Setup section, as does setting up either dynamic DNS service from dynDNS.org or TZO, setting up static routes or disabling NAT features and converting the GS to a non-NAT router.
The interface is generally quick, with quick mini-reboots needed to get the changes you make on each page to take. Multiple admin logins are allowed, with no warning given when two or more admins log on. Once you're logged in, there's no idle timeout, and you just need to remember to quit your browser when you're done, because there's no logout button.
Enabling Remote Management for the first time still pops up a message telling you to change the router's default password and you can now enable secure (HTTPS) admin access. You can also change the default remote admin port from 8080, but can't restrict access by IP address or domain. Also of note is that you can't reboot the GS from the Admin interface.
Let me know if you require any more assistance.
