The way you worded the question, suggests a bit of confusion that you may have "My Linksys WRT150N is hooked up to one computer". Although once working it may be convenient to think of it that way, the router makes the network available and sets the rules for the network. Then, it is up to the individual computers to connect to it by complying with those rules.

I'm using a WRT160N, so I have to reference it, but I believe the tabs and options on the WRT150N are very close to the same thing. First, take a look at the router to see what it's rules are. The default address for the router is http://192.168.1.1. Type that into your browser (or copy/paste it). You'll get a signon screen. The default is user name left blank and password is admin. On some you need to type admin into both fields.

That will put you in the setup screen. Look halfway down the screen to Maximum Number of Users and make sure it is large enough - 3 would work for the network you describe, but within reason, a bigger number (say, if friends stop by) is good. I use a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 50.

Then click the Wireless tab (the second tab) and look at the settings. For Network Mode, I recommend Mixed. If you happen to have selected Wireless N only and your other systems are Wireless G, they can't connect. Make sure you have a network name. It doesn't matter what it is as long as (1) you know what it is and (2) it is different from any neighbors who happen to be in range.

Then go to the Wireless Security sub tab. See what your settings are on this page. I recommend WEP, 104/128 bit, and a complex hexidecimal key in Key 1. Either just note the values that are there, or set them the way I suggest.

Go to the next sub tab, Wireless MAC Filter. This lets you set up which PCs can connect to the router and which can't by MAC (a unique identifyer). I recommend disabling this by clicking disabled at the top of the page. That should handle the understanding of the setup on the router side. There's other things that can be set, but most people just leave them alone.

Then for your other computers and your PS3, go into their wireless setup and set the values that you now know are in the router. If you run into trouble doing this, post again with what you did and what happened.

2 Press and hold the "Reset" button.

My linksys WRT150N router won't recieve internet signal from my dsl modem. The router sends out a signal to my lap top, but no internet connection can be made.


Try connecting your laptop directly to the dsl modem to make sure that it is working correctly.
If the dsl modem is working correctly then:
1. Turn off the power on the router and dsl modem.
2. After about 2 minutes, turn on the dsl modem.
3. Wait another 2 minutes, then turn on the router.

Occasionally you need to do this to get them back in synch. If this doesn't work you may need to use the software utility to reconfigure the router.

May I suggest you give Network Magic a try at solving your connectivity problems. Free to download and evaluate, you may well find it is well worth the couple $ for the 5 full licenses. Get it here: http://www.purenetworks.com/nmlp/home-networking.php?gclid=CPua-J-J1J4CFVw55QodUi_Nrw&src=google&kw=network+magic+download

In addition to connectivity, NM will aid you with security and sharing as well as other fine features.

Linksys N router drops signal


Its not dropping you because of the spectrums, it works on line of sight. If you are in a basement and your router is upstairs it has to go thru a floor and the strength is weakened. Go into your router and increase the signal strength. But you have to mod your firmware.

WRT150N looses wireless connectivity


filasian, there is a strong possibility that the switch part of your router is defective because there is no light on number 2 even if there is a computer plugged into it, this can be the factor that affects the wireless operation of the unit.

the best move you may do at this point is to contact Linksys to perform a firmware flash on your router or discuss the warranty of the unit.

their toll free number is 1-800-326-7114
