Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router (DSLSWRT54G)
I have a wireless G broadband router connected to a satellite box and with cable to a pc running xp and I also connect to the router via wireless from my laptop using xp. I have now brought a new computer running vista and wish to connect via cable to the router but so far all I get is the message saying a network cable is unplugged. I have checked all the connections and they seem ok. ? do i need to install the router software on this new machine or tweek any settings on the new machine. Is it necessary to have the network set up first on this new machine. All I want to do is use the internet access via the router not share files.
The message "a network cable is unplugged" indicates that the networking cable was removed or not connected properly either at the back of your PC or at the Ethernet port of the router. Perhaps you can remove and re-insert back and please verify that you hear a click when inserted right. At times, the cable itself maybe at fault, pls replace if necessary.
It is not necessary to install the router software on the new machine or tweak any settings if your new machine is set to auto obtain network configuration.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things worked out or should you need additional information.
good luck and kind regards.
