Wireless Network Connection is no longer connected

I own a Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router. It was working this morning, but now the Wireless Network Connection is no longer connected. On the front of the unit, the "Wireless G" status light will not light up. The only way to get the internet to work is if I run an ethernet cable from the router to the PC

    my linksys router doesn' seem to be working...i reset it, along with the modem. The only way I am getting internet access is by unplugging the modem from the router and directly connecting to my laptop

    My Problem is a little different I have this router that I use with my cable router If I run a cable from my linksys to my laptop it will indicate that it is connected but cannot go on the internet. Same with the wireless connection. If I disconnect the linksys router and cable right to the cable router I have no problems. I tried reseting power and reset the reset button i also changed the cable that linked from the linksys to the cable router with a known good one and that wasn't the problem either.

I've had this problem before. Simply power cycle the device (unplug it, wait 20 seconds, and plug it back in). If this starts happening often it may be nearing the end of this products lifecycle (you may need to replace it). I had mine for 3 years before I had to replace it.

It appears the connection between the Linksys and the modem is not working.
Try a different LAN cable.
Check the LAN cable from the modem to the Linksys, it should be connected to the WAN/Internet port on the Linksys.

are you connecting the laptop hard wired or wirelessly?

for wired connection, just plug the ethernet cable from the router to the laptop and it should work fine.

for the wireless connection, check on the wireless network connection. for xp, click on start> control panel> network connections> right click wireless network connection> then click on view available wireless network> then select your network.. for secure wireless connection, type the security key then click connect. :-)

Wireless connection


Possible you did reset the router. Its okay to connect to that linksys network name. But if you want to customize you network name.

MAKE SURE TO USE THE WIRED COMPUTER TO SETUP WIRELESS CONNECTION.
Example : The Desktop computer that is connected to directly to router.


Just follow the steps.

Try first to reset it to the factoty settings by pressing the brown button on the back of the unit, next to the Internet connection. You will have to reprogram the router with your PPPoE settings, if any, and your wireless security.
