Can't get a wireless connection from my Linksys WRT54GC router

I have no trouble getting a wired connection but whenever i turn on wireless i cant even see the SSID.

I see other wireless networks around me (apartment building) SSID Discovery is turned on.

I have a HP Pavillion dv2700 series laptop.

I think you have the router setup to not broadcast the SSID. Go to your router settings to change this option. By not broadcasting, it enhances security for your wireless network, because it looks like there's no network. I hope this helps!

I am using linksys wireless g broadband router and i cant connect to the internet it says low connection or no connectivity


I believe you would have a cable connection and no a telephone connection because if you have the second one this router will not be of use to you.
Assuming you are using a cable provider:

You could see if you are following all the steps from that manual in order to configure it correctly.
Kind regards

My Linksys WRT54GC suddenly stopped working. The router has no power light but the wireless and internet light are green.


Sounds like a PSU failure possibly.

If you can still get wired internet then its not dead. Its even possible the power LED is pooched if you can still use the wired connections.

Router cant handle two pc's connecting to same server


Try to do port forwarding. Search for the port number that the game uses and open it on the router's Setup Page using Port Forwarding.
