Before you can make the pc go wireless,you have to connect to your network first.By default the network name is linksys and it is an unsecured network.If you have personalized your network then try to connect to the personalized network.make sure that the network status says connected.after that try to go online.

Hardwire ports on wireless router not working


You could

1) Reset the router to factory default by hitting the reset on back

2) You could visit the router over the wireless link (http://192.168.1.1) default password is "admin" username blank.

Check on the page to ensure the ports are enabled.

3) Update the firmware on the device. see if it works.

Note there is a port called "uplink" which is designed for the internet connection and not the local computer.

I cant connect to the Internet threw my wireless linksys router wrt54g v.8 which allows me to go on the Internet if its hardwire which defeats the whole point and It wont let me go wireless ? p.s please...


First you need to configure the wireless settings on the access point using the network cable. Do you know how to login to the access point as administrator to setup the SSID, and WAP encryption? Don't forget to change the default password.
To make your access point secure from hackers, turn off SSID broadcast and use MAC address filtering to stop all wireless access to your access point except for the MAC address of your wireless card.

Second, is the wireless card driver installed and working?
Can the wireless detect the access point and does it have a strong signal strength?
The Wireless card needs to be configured with the access point's SSID and encryption settings.
Let me know if you have further problems together with error messages.

No Internet Connection


Hmm... this sounds more of 2 things. Firewall and security. Is this a new unit that you have? If not, i suggest you take a look at the settings of the WAP to ensure you do not have mac authentification on (if it's WEP, you will be asked for the encrypted key, and since you did not mention any of this, i assume it's more of a MAC filter setting, preventing you from connecting to the network).

Alternatively, you might wanna find out if you have the WAP's firewall turned on, preventing you from accessing the network (norton's 360 firewall is a pain in the a**). Also, as a precuationary measure, you might wanna update the latest image of linksys's WAP, to ensure optimal performace. Hope this helped. Thanks.
