Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router

1 Answer

I cannot connect to my new WRT150N router

So far I've tried two types of wireless cards, and two other wireless devices and everything has failed. I shut down all forms of security, reinstalled all the software and hardware 2 times; followed all connection directions for using both Linksys and Windows XP but nothing works.
I have not tested the wireless cards or devices to connect with other wireless networks, but I am relatively certain they work. I have had them acknowledge the network I set up, but everytime it says unable to connect.

Re: I cannot connect to my new WRT150N router

Lets start with the basics. First do you have a computer with an ethernet port for a wired connection? If so connect it to the router and attempt to access the internet. If this works we have eliminated the ISP connection and need to address the wireless configuration of either the router or the adapter or both. I will need the version number of the router which probably appears on a label on the bottom of the device to get access to the proper users guide. I do not have one of these models specifically however on reading the specs it mentions that it works well with B and G wireless cards -- there is a possibility this device will not work with A band cards -- we will confirm this later. Please provide the model number for wireless adapter so we can research them if needed.

I am trying to connect a wrt150n wireless linksys router to my dsl. I am using a desktop windows 7 and laptop windows vista. Please help, I have tried everything but it just does not want to work.

unplug everything, including ethernet cables. then work in this exact order.
if you get a wireless signal and no internet, plug a computer in into the router in one of the available ports and check for internet. If no internet, unplug everything and test the modem without the router. If internet available without the router, then follow these instructions
  1. plug phone line into modem
  2. plug power into modem
  3. wait for all lights to become steady
  4. plug ethernet cable into modem
  5. plug other end of same cable into port labled "internet"
  6. wait for lights to become constant on both router and modem
  7. check your wireless device for wireless service.
if you dont get a wireless signal at all, plug your device into the rear of the router and type in the adress bar
the password and username are both "admin" or simply leave the password blank if that doesn't work

navigate to the wireless option and turn on the wireless transmiter.

My computer will not connect to the internet when I hook up to the Linksys wrt150n I don,t understand It because it use to work this is about to drive up the wall I have tried resetting the router but it...

If you can connect to the Internet using the LAN cable then your Internet connection is OK.
If you are trying to connect to the Internet using the wireless connection, then your problem is the wireless settings in either the Linksys or the wireless card in your computer.
First check the wireless settings in the Linksys, ie. the SSID and encryption key.
Second check the wireless settings in the computer's wireless card, this must match the route's wireless settings. If it matched then do a Repair connection. this will get the Linksys to issue a new IP address to the wireless
If the Linksys wireless settings were changed then configure the wireless card in the computer with these new settings.

Then try connecting.

Wireless network using usb modem

First thing that you have to do is to check if the wireless light on your linksys wrt150N is lit. If it is, then that means that it is emitting wireless signal so you can connect wirelessly.

Then, install your verizon usb mobile broadband card on your desktop. When you plug it to the usb port, a pop up balloon would show on your page which would say FOUND NEW HARDWARE. you could click on it and choose the CD-drive to install OR you can run the cd and have it install on itself.

After installing the usb, try to connect to your wireless network. Start > Connect to > and then click on the name of your wireless network.
