Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

2 Answers

My WRT54G2 worked this morning, but not this afternoon.

I have been accessing the internet through my WRT54G2 from a IBM Thinkpad laptop without any problems. We also have a Toshiba Laptop that had no problems. Today I tried using a brand new Compaq Laptop, and I can see the wireless signal is good, but I get a "limited connectivity" message and can't get on the internet. On top of that, the Thinkpad and Toshiba are blocked out too. The all of the lights on the modem are on and so are the lights of the router. Any suggestions?

Try to perform a power cycle. Unplug the power from the modem and the router first. Wait for 1 minute. Power on the modem first and wait for all the lights to be solid. Then power on the router. Check your connection again if its working.

Try powercycling the router. It sounds like the DHCP serviec is hung up. Most likely, this will solve the issue.

Can't set up wireless on IBM Thinkpad


If I recall there are two types of wireless cards that are installed in the T40 series of laptops. Can't advise you which one is installed in your laptop. Download both of them and install one, it it doesn't work then install the other one.

Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model laptop,
You need to use a computer that has Internet access to download and transfer the files to your computer.

http://www.ibm.com/products/finder/us/finders?pg=ddfinder&cm_re=other-_-suprcn-_-download

Once you get the wireless card operation, you need a wireless router that is connected to a cable or DSL modem which is connected to an Internet Service Provider.
You don't need a wireless router if you only want to connect to the Internet using wireless Hot Spots in public locations or Internet cafes.

You need to access a computer that is connected to the Internet, (try going to a friend or work mate or nternet cafe etc.)

Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP audio driver for your model laptop,
www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-39956.html

Copy the downloaded files and install them on your computer.

Ibm restore to factory setting


You have not explained what is wrong with your computer.
Is the laptop working, does it boot up into Windows?
What are you trying to restore?
Are you trying to get into a previous Restore Point?
The Access button takes you into the BIOS, you can change the BIOS settings back to the Default settings (ie the factory default settings).
It is difficult to offer a solution without knowing the exact nature of the problem.
