It's possible your laptop is picking up some other router than yours (a nearby neighbor or business, for instance) or you don't have yours set up correctly.

You'll need to check the router settings for starters, and to do that you have to connect your laptop using an Ethernet cable. Enter //192.168.1.1 in your Internet browser address bar to reach the router. If you're asked for a username and password, the default for Linksys routers is usually "admin" (without quotes) for the username and "password" for the password. It's also possible that the username is blank and "admin" is the password, but that's rare.

Once you've accessed the router you can check your wireless settings and set up your wireless security. Then you should be able to successfully connect your laptop wirelessly. The Linksys website has setup information available and you can download the manual for your router if you need a copy.

You need to make sure your router is set up correctly, as well as your internet connection, whether it's cable modem or DSL or whatever.

First of all, what kind of internet access do you have?

I have a vonage router and a broadband router. How do i connect my linksys e3000 wireless router to the computer.


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default PW (write it down and putit in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Do I need any special equipment other than the ethernet cable connection for my linksys broadband wireless-g router


That's all you need to get your wireless internet up and running. However, in order to connect computers to the wireless network, they must be wireless capable, for example, most laptops have built in wifi, however desktops will need a wireless adapter to take advantage of your wireless router.

WIFI not working with Linksys wireless-g broadband router/Comcast


Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.

I recently bought a linksys wireless router i've


Make sure your wireless feature is turned on on the computer. There may be a switch on the edge of the computer somewhere, you don't say what kind of computer it is.

Find the wireless connection wizard on your computer and run it. Find it in your network folder in the control panel.

If this is too much, post a comment to this question and we will back up and start over.

BTW, if your laptop has a ethernet outlet (looks like a big phone jack), you can wire your laptop to your router.

I want to help you with this problem

thanks

Wifi getting connected with new linksys


You need to call Linksys again for them to help you setup the other computer. For the none-working computer, you don't need to run the setup CD for the router. All you need to do is connect to wireless network like what you did on the working laptop.
