Router to computer issues WRT54GS

I have a good signal from my router to my HP Pavilion laptop. Everything says it is connected and the signal is excelent.  The router seems to be working great. 

My problem is that although I have a wireless conection my computer won't accept it.  The router is a WRT54GS.  My computer is running Windows XP, Home edition.  Is there something I'm missing? I've gone throuhg all the proper set up programs and etc but can't make a conection. 

Any help would be greatly appericated. 

Thanks in Advance

Ensure that any firewall you may have is turned off, then try it again.

Try updating the firmware on the router.You need to log into the router using

Hi. First issue why your laptop cant connect to your router is regarding witht the password. Make sure that you are typing in the correct password of your router. Check the type of authentication used e.g WPA, WEP etc. Second issue, is this the first time you used windows 7 OS in connecting to your router. There are issues in linkys routers that is not compatible with windows 7 and you need firmware upgrade for your router. You can also try to test the connectivity using a wired conncetion (LAN cable) conncet directly to your router nd se if you were able to get an internet concetion using a wired connection.

Have a good one!

Make sure that your router is set for an "encryption system" that is similar to all your computers and mobile devices. Example, if your router is set to encrypt using WAP2, make sure all your devices connect and is capable to connect using WAP2. Or else, set it to WAP and set your devices to WAP also.

I need to set up my linksys WRT54GS. do i set it up on my laptop or desktop? or both?

When you set up your router do always use a wired computer (phisically connected ).
You'll be setting up the router so setting it up through one is enough
Once the router is set up by performing these options
1>start->run->cmd ->youll find default gateway
2>open rsp by typing in default gateway address in brouser tab
3>select ->connection type ->and put in your uname and password for dsl or clone mac address for cable
4>set channell to 11 or 6 for best signal strength
5>set ur ssid(network name) and security (wep preffered) if you want it.
6>once router is set up on the top of the rsp you may see ipstatus:: connected
7>Now just select your network on your laptop
and happy surfing
Let me know if your issue is sorted

Linksys WRT54GS not working

  1. First you may need to check if the WLAN or Wireless light on the router is on.
  2. Try connecting your ITouch to a different wireless network.
  3. If you can borrow a wireless ready laptop from a friend, then borrow one.
  4. Check if the laptop will be able to detect a wireless signal from router.
Please update me about this matter.
