Hi Tradeboy,

This link should walk you though it, step by step!

If you are using Vista, you will probley want this link, too. Click on Network icon.

In the past I have found the biggest issue with networking is firewalls, so I suggest you disable them just for testing and setting up your network.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Linksys wireless adapter and linksys wrt54g2 router not seeing each other

its possible that the wireless card does not have the correct wireless settings.

Open the linksys wireless monitor on your wife's laptop.
Go to the profiles tab, highlight the default SSID then click on edit at the bottom. It will search for the wireless network, from the list of networks that it will show you, click the name of your wireless network, in if the network is secured you will be ask to put in your network key. Then click connect. Then it will say that you profile was successfully configured. then click connect to network. It will take you back back to the screen where you saw no association to the access point, check if you will now get a new message. On that same screen click the more info button at the upper left hand side. Check the IP address it should be 192.168.1.x. If you have that IP then you can test if you will be albe to get online.

if you still have any problem just reply to this post.

I just got a linksys 4-port router, when i hook it up it connects to the network, but when i goto load a webpage it does not load it. anybody got a solution to my problem?

Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Not recognizing connection

Not sure on the configuration of this model, but is there a port on it labelled WAN? If so your cable from the internet should be plugged into this one and all other cables go into the other ports.

Linksys router will not work with my hp deskto

you will need to "set up" the router.
This is the support page for linksys, if you enter your model in the drop down box, you may see a "Easy Setup' or "assistant" software to help set it up, otherwise you can contact your ISP and they will walk you through entering the right settings.
You will usually have to enter, or something close in the address bar when you hook your router up and get pagecannot be displayed, type in that number (or the correct ip of the router) and it will get you to the router setup page.

Have an Acer Aspire PC computer - trying to hook up a Lynksys nr041 router so can hook up another HP Notebook computer...not for sure how to do this and be able to use internet on both computers. Thanks...

Ok if you have DSL this router will NOT connect via PPPoE so no user name or passwords for dsl. But if you have a cable modem just plug the network cord from your cable modem into the WAN port on router... then plug the computers into the 1-4 ports on the router.. you might need to reset your Cable/Dsl modem after everythings hooked up.
