Re: Hooking linksys to gigafast

There are some question's that should probably be asked before we begin. Generally a wireless adapter or network card is present in a computer to allow it to access a wireless router which is connected to an internet service provider (generally a dsl connection through a phone line or a cable modem from your cable provider. Your request seems to be to get a computer to talk to a wireless router to talk to a wireless router to talk to your internet service provider (dsl or cable). I will assume after reading this that you probably have or will get a wireless adapter for the computer to talk to one or both of the wireless routers you appear to have. Wiring two wireless routers in the same house may be useful if the home is large or the wireless routers operate on different bands (a, b, g or frequencies) and you have different computers that require the different bands. however both wireless routers are in my experience connected to each other using a wire. Once we clarify the above we can probably address the connectivity issues for the devices you require.

Unable to connect PS3 to linksys wrtg54gs

Have you tried hooking up with a cable directly to the router? have you tried hooking up with a cable directly to the modem? do you get any response from it either way. I use one of these with 2 ps3s and 2 laptops going and they work great. But I have WPA set up not WEP. If you go into the router settings is it setup to run more than 1 wireless item at a time? Did you manually set the ip address or is it set to automatic?
