Re: trying to instal wireless router

Hi Jwsgrl,

Did you buy the router new or used?

if used it might still have the old user settings on it that sometimes requires MAC addy's to be registered on the wireless access point site ( If this is the case then hit the restart button while the router is on to default all settings.

the default login and pw for linksys is:
User Name: admin
Password: admin

You probably already have it set up since you followed the instructions but it never hurts to mention:
1. Make sure that your modems Ethernet line is connected to your wireless router Ethernet port, then using the 1 of 4 open jacks on the router connect #1 to your computers Ethernet Pprt.

let me know how i can assist you further.

Bought linksy modem because of provider now wireless dont work

Hi Guys,

What needs to be defined first is the reason as to why it had stopped working. Before a suggestion is made, we first need to find out what the model number of your router is (there are many version of the linksys wrt54g router). Once that is defined i suggest you reset your router by doing the instructions as per this web page (cop and paste in your browser):

Once you have done that, the router should be set to factory default leaving you with a fresh clean slate. You can then proceed to configure the router for wireless security (if you need it) by following the steps here:

The instructions on these pages should help, however, if you face any uncertainties, please do feel free to get back to me and i shall attempt to cover whatever i can do to help the both of you out. Thank you.

If you are connecting your computer thru the ethernet it should not need a CD. If you are connecting wirelessly then you should need drivers for the wireless NIC. (the wireless thing in/on your computer that talks with the router.) You should be able to go to the manufacture website such as linksys and get the driver off there. I just went to linksys and they make so you have to go all over their website to get it but on the homepage in the top corner is a link that says downloads, click that choose your product, then enter a model number and it should then take you to the page that will offer driver downloads. Simply download unzip and install. If the wireless NIC is diffrent then linksys then simple go to the manufacture that made the hardware.

Linksys WRK54G versus WRT54G Firmware


The WRK54G is actually a stripped down version of the WRT54G that was bundled with a wireless network adapter and sold under the kit name WKPC54G.

From what you say in your question I gather that you have a WRT54G already in place as your access point, and it is what is connected to your WAN. To use the WRK54G as a range extender repeater you should do the following:

1. Turn off DHCP
2. Turn off NAT
3. Assign a fixed IP that is in your Class C Block
4. Define the WRT54G as the Gateway

With this configuration it now should function as an extender/repeater, and any clients connecting to it will be serviced by the DHCP on the master router.

I hope that this helps.

Linksys WAP54G connection to WRT54G

Ok, so why do you need an access point upstairs and a router downstairs connected wirelessly? If you can't connect with a laptop or a pc, why whould you think you could connect the access point? The purpose of this configuration would have to be with the access point to the router via ethernet. What's the point? If the problem is range, check out to enhance the capabilities of the WRT54G... and maybe building a parabolic antenna for it as well. Plans to do so abound at
