Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

I'm currently having router trouble.

I'm currently having trouble connecting to my router. I can easily access the internet via ethernet directly into the modem, but the internet just doesn't seem to go through the router. I am able to access its IP address and change some things around, but I'm worried that I might do somethng wrong. I should also mention that this is the second time in a week that this router has given us this problem. Please Help!

    I have tried all of those solutions mentioned, yet nothing seems to work. Also, we have 4 computers that used to connect to it. 2 running XP, one running Vista, and one is a Mac. I'm currently using one of the XPs.

The first thing to know is, what kind of OS are you running?

Go to start and click on run, on the dialog box type 'cmd' or 'command', then type 'ipconfig /all'
Please look at your Default Gateway should display:
192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1

The modem rj45 cable should connect to the internet port on the router and another rj45 cable connect from the router(any port 1-4) to your pc

open your browser and go to http://192.168.X.X

The last resort will be to reset your router by pressing a reset button on the back of the router for 5-10 seconds.

    Need to be more specific, have you setup a password on the router?

    What are the things that you can change?

I want to no how to fix the internet connection. It is very lagging and does our every minute


Not enough information are you using wireless internet connection via a wi fi router via a broadband connection like DSL or Cable. Your play station may be too far way from it to get a reliable signal. you may need a wi fi repeater or a direct ethernet cable from your router to your play station. I am testing out a powerline ethernet connection this is another way to connect ethernet. Direct 100 Mb/s cable is the best as wireless and powerlines is slower (note1). You may have a slow internet connection test it by goggling for " test download speed " .

(note 1) there is a faster wireless technology currently being sold but the game station would not be able to utilise it.

I hooked up everything right modem to router, router to computer. but i still cant get internet to my computer. if i hook my modem directly to the compiter it works fine but not through the router


Some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) limit you to *ONE* unique computer connected through the cable-modem (or DSL-modem).
Turn the cable-modem off.
Turn the router off.
Connect the cable-modem to the router, via an Ethernet cable to the 'WAN' port on the router.
Turn the cable-modem on.
Turn the router on.
Connect, via an Ethernet cable, from one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to your computer.
Restart your computer.
You should be OK.
If not, telephone your ISP, and get them to trouble-shoot from "their" end towards your end.

Computer cabled to Dynex enhanced G wireless will not connect


Unplug the router for ten seconds and plug it back in, it needs to reset. Some routers have a reset button. I often wait longer than ten seconds, I find a beer is usually the right amount of time. Sometimes the modem needs a reset also; unplug everything, then plug back in sequence, with the modem first, the wait, then the router, wait, then turn on your computer. That system works for any brand modem and router.

I have Westell E90-610030-06 DSL2+/Router with only 1 ethernet connection (currently using for PC) and 1 usb port. what is the best way to get my ps3 connected to the internet?


You can actually use your PS3 via direct connection through ethernet connection for internet access. Just make sure to go to the configuration screen of your PS3 for automatic connection and refer to manual or call Sony for additional tech support

Wireless connection fine but internet connection impossible


if you only have usb connection in your modem, internet on the zyxel router will not work since it's using ethernet connection. in order for your zyxel device to work with tiscali, you will need a cable/dsl router that has ethernet connection as well. you can contact tiscali if they can provide you with that kind of modem.

hope this'll help you

Linksys Wireless-G 2.4Ghz Broadband Router Problem


You have to check if your computer can connect to the modem with an Ethernet cable. This will tell you if the ethernet port on the modem is working. if that does not work call your cable provider.

Next thing after you get the instructions above done.

Press the reset button on the back of the router> press it in for 30 seconds then let go and pull out the power. Connect the router up the way it should be before you reset by the way. check if you have internet if you do not follow hte directions at teh link below.

Can this be used with a MAC?


Any router will work, TCP/IP is a network standard, definately double check the cables. Your DSL modem is usually 192.168.254.254. and the router is usually 192.168.1.1. Check your documentation for the default IP. Once you know it type it in to the broswer in your Mac. Before doing so connect with an ethernet cable, purchase a new one if necessary. Connect from the <--> labeled port on the mac, or ethernet port. These wires are not like phone lines, they have 8 wires instead of 4/6. The router usually has ports on the back labeled 1, 2, 3, 4, and WAN. the 1-4 ports are LAN and that is also labeled on there. Plug the mac into port 1 and any other computers in after you get internet. once the physical connection is recognized. Go to your browser in the mac and proceed. if you get a web based router configuration page your router is working, then make the WAN connection to the ethernet port on the back of the dsl mode. Be sure your cables are good. Also go to your control panel and make sure your internet is enabled in your network section.
