Question about Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless Router
When you say all lights on the router are ON, does this mean that even there is no ethernet cable connected to the router the lights are still ON? Yes, may still want to revieve it by pushing the reset (use a pen or paper clip) buttton for 30 seconds and then unplug the power and then plug it back in. See if the lights are stable, then try to test the connectivity between the computer and the router. Connect your PC to your router and then go to Start>Run> and then type cmd and hit Enter.
Once you're on the black screen, type ipconfig/all and hit Enter.
See if you're getting an IP address from the router. By default it will assign 192.168.1.100 to your PC.
If you are getting 192.168.1.xxx, see if you can ping the router. Just type on the black screen, ping 192.168.1.1 and then hit Enter again.
If you get replies then there's a chance to make it working. Just access the Web UI, open a browser and type 192.168.1.1 and hit Enter.
Once you're on the Setup page of the router, double check your Internet Connection Type and make sure you have the correct settings. Connect your Modem to the Internet port of the router and then go to the status page of the router and see if your getting an Internet or WAN IP address. If yes, then try to surf the internet.
I suggest the you also upgrade your router with the lates firmware version available on the Linksys Web site.
