running XP and the other equip all works when using another router.
unable to get on the net wirelessly or through ethernet cable.

All the LED's on the front appear correct.
The router is seen by the PC when connected but cannot get the router to pass the internet signals through it.

Re: wireless router WRT54G version 2

To setup your router
first check..
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your Internet Service Provider. If it can go online,
to setup connection..
Step 1:
Connect the Broadband modem to the router’s WAN or Internet port.
Step 2:
Connect the computer to any available numbered port (1, 2, 3 or 4).
NOTE: In this example, we’ll connect the computer to port number 3.
Step 3:
Make sure the power adapter is plugged to an available power outlet.
Step 4:
check if you are able to go online wired..
if not your router has to be configured first,
to config your router i need some more information
your internet service providers (isp)name , and how many computers do u have totally..
let me no know in case if you have any problems ...

Wrt54g linksys problem

are you trying to set up the router for the first time ?
OR the router was working before and you are trying to add a new windows 7 computer to the network ?

If you are trying to set up the router for the first time then you can do it manually without the CD also.

If your router is already working and you want to add the computer to the network then you just need to connect to the network

Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router Issue Allows 1 Computer at a time

Your router my not be DCHP enabled or it might not be assigning the IP addresses either.

I would do a reset and start all over with your security settings and see if that works. Worst case scenario you could always turn security off when your parents or others are there.

The operating system on my PC is XP and I bought a new HP laptop with Vista. I cant seem to get the wireless feature to work now - it worked fine with my previous laptop running XP.

I'm assuming that your Vista has a built-in wireless.. If so, the first thing you need to check is if the wireless function is turned on (usually by pushing Fn + F2. Check from your laptop manufacturer). Then follow these instructions:

WRT54G linksys router

The first thing I would do is check to make sure the desktop with XP has the network card set to "obtain an IP address automatically"

if it is set to obtain an ip address automatically, I need to know the following:

What is the IP addresss of the router?
What is the IP address of the Vista computer?
What is the IP address of the xp computer?

You can find the ip address by going to start, then run, then type cmd and hit enter. at a command prompt type: ipconfig and hit enter.

Hi foreylexy,

You actually don't need to install a driver for a router. The discs that the manufacture provide are actually just run a program to guide you through the initial setup. I'm using a router right now and I've never had to install a driver. If however, you are talk about the wireless adapters for use with the WRT54G access point router - then that's a different mater.

To access you router just plug an Ethernet cable into it and your PC. Then open a browser and type This is the default IP address, unless you've changed it. The default login and password are both admin. You should now be able to make any changes you need.
