Re: cannot connet to internet

Device communication issue! This sometimes occurs fro many reasons mainly FIREWALLS~ In order to keep this from happeninig you should probably setup a static address on your laptop or if your network has a SSID, it needs to be manually set into your adapter because it is not picking up your network. This often happens when you use your laptop in or on other networks. Easy fix, but need answers to these questions!

Linksys Wireless-G not connecting to internet

Make sure you are plugging the SMC into the WAN port on the Linksys router and not the LAN ports.  Your internet connection (which is your SMC) should always plug into your WAN port on the Linksys.  Any computers that you may need to plug in, like Desktops that are "wired" and not "wireless", should plug into the LAN ports on the Linksys.  If you are not using the WAN port on the Linksys for your SMC modem, then that would explain why you cannot get to the internet on wireless or wired computers.
Here's why you are getting the "low connectivity" message:

Computers don't understand why the Internet is connecting or not the "low connectivity" message you keep receiving has nothing to do with your wireless signal strength.   To a computer NIC, "low connectivity" means your network adapter could not find a DHCP server and receive a valid IP address.  When this happens, your network adapter assigns an IP address to your computer in the following range..., and will display the "low connectivity" message until it is able to receive a valid private IP address from the DHCP server.  You can verify this by going to START | RUN and typing "cmd" (without the quotes), then hit ENTER.  A black box will pop up....then type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER.  This will show you your IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address, and you can verify that your IP address is in the range.  A valid private IP address is typically in the range, but could also be in the range, or the range.    Also, make sure you have DHCP server enabled on the Linksys router for the LAN.  This will ensure your "wired" and "wireless" computers receive a valid IP address.  
The WAN port on your Linksys router should be configured to "Obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP".

SMC Barricade g SMCWBR14-N Wireless Router... router Configure with Westell 327W

it seems that the router capability of both devices are conflicting with each other so below are the steps that you can try to setup the two devices to work with each other.

i assume that you are using pppoe connection from at&t and you are using a connection manager. if so, with the current setup that you have right, you need to disable the connection manager on your computer (network connection, disable at&t connection) and set the connection of your web browser to "never dial a connection". check now if you will be able to connect to the internet instead of being prompted for a password. if your problem is still the same, try the steps below.

configure the westell 327w the way it was before (when it works properly when hard wired to the computers but the wireless sucks) but disable the wireless capability. change now the ip address of the smc router from it's default ( to an ip address which is on the same segment as the ip address of the westell 327w (ex. if your westell 327w is using the ip address disable the dhcp of the smc router (note:make sure that you have configured all the settings that you want to configure with the smc (i.e. wireless settings, port forwarding, etc). then connect the westell to one of the LAN ports of the smc (note: with this setup, the wan port of the smc should not be used) and power cycle everything and check if this setup will work.

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern.
