Linksys wireless issue

I have WRT54GX2 lINKSYS WIRELESS router. This is connected with high speed cable connection. If I connect my pc directly through cable modem then it works but when it goes through the Linksys router it does not. Also then the wireless function also does not work for my laptop. what are my options?

    I have same problem. Router worked before but now can't get internet when modem connects to router. I am aware of the upgrade to firmware fix but when I open Internet explorer browser (at this point modem connected directly to tower and ISP homepage shows) typing the IP into address bar doesn't go to another window. How do I get an appropriate address bar on browser?

More then likely the cable company changed the ip addresses for the local side of thier router. if they made thier routers local side be 192.168.1.xxx and if you linksys router (which is by default) also 192.168.1.xxx on the lan it will not work.

call your cable company and ask them what the local (LAN) ip address range is and adjust it or the linksys router accordingly

Is this working before? Then This is for reconfiguration and the solution Enuro 12 gave you  is right.

 

 To add up, password is admin and leave username blank. If after configuration it won't still work, then have the firmware upgraded and you can call 18003267114 for manual upgrade of firmware.

Sounds like your pc is grabbing up an IP address but your Wireless router isn't.
Plug your cable into the Linksys just like you did before.
Your default ip will be something like 192.168.1.101

Open your web browser and type in 192.168.1.1
it should ask for a user and password
put in admin and admin, or just admin for the password and no username. I have not used that model so i'm not sure.

Find the administration page i believe. Then find "Mac Address Clone" select copy my mac address, and select the box for using the option, then save.

Reboot both devices (Unplug and plug them back in) and that should fix the problem.

As for wireless on the latop, do you have wireless working on anything else?

The Linksys adapter should have a program you open to find and connect to your router. If not, you can use the Windows Network settings to find your router and connect. Although 54G is a slower speed, they should still connect.

Can only get a 10 meg when connected via cable to srx 200


The speed of your wireless adapter maybe up to 54 Mpbs only, check the wireless adapter that you have if it is 802.11 G its set to 54 Mbps only however if your using 802.11 N the speed of the adapter is around 300 mbps of connection.

There's a settings on the router that you can lock WAN port speed to around 10/100/1000

Note: To have a 300 Mbps of connection you should set the wireless settings of the router to WPA2 and AES with bandwidth of auto 20/40

Wireless router connection problems


Assuming "cannot connect to linksys router directly" means you cannot connect to a Wireless Lan managed by Linksys router,
1) try to connect new computer to LinkSys Router using a Lan cable, add new PC to your network.
2) recover protocol (WEP or WPA) and Key of WLAN (Passphrase or Key: TKIP or AES) either from other PC on same network either from your Router.
3) If you missed actual key you must connect to router and reset it to a new key to be eventually used for every connected device.
Call for detail on this possibility

Wireless internet connection


I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?

Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.
