Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

IE will not connect to internet

I have the D-link wireless card, it connects fine like it should, however my computer will not connect to the net. It show's connected on the task bar and it even is sending and received packets but IE will not pop up, it gives me the "this page cannot be displayed" it worked before but it just quit for some reason. HELP!!!

My wife uses a wifi connection to the router that I am also connected to at home. Her machine has recently come up with cannot connect to page message and also her email connection has failed. The machine says it has the home connection. My ethernet cable connection however is ok. Connecting her by ethernet does not fix the problem. I connected another machine to the router temporarily a day or so before and it worked fine. So what has happened to my wife's laptop. It had an Omniquad antivirus package which just went out of date. What can you suggest.

I have a similar problem; tried two cards D-Link and LinkSys. Both cards show a strong connection; high speed (Comcast cable) at the desktop that I am trying setup. Using XP Pro S2, etc. I can find available connections but when I open IE 7.0 it does not connect to the Internet. There is a weak attempt to connect but freezes - same when trying to connect to email. I have checked for firewalls, etc. Thinking it has to do with IE 7.0 and Outlook Express or AVG virus protection. With both cards and software, it keeps asking for the KEY number at each boot-up to connect; I have uninstalled/installed - same thing. Been around the circle a 100 change.

Hey thanks for the help...much appreciated.

Re: IE will not connect to internet

First I am not connected with the product that I am recomending in any way shape or form.

On a wired PC download Network Magic (the free version is all you will need). Burn a CD with it and install on the laptop. Bring up Network Magic and use it to connect to the network. If it can not find the network, run Network Magic on your wired PC and bring up the Network Map and look to see if you can see your router on the network. Log into the router and start by reseting the wireless.

I use this product on all my laptops and desktops it makes networking simple.

Using d-link glb-802 c router , now purchased another system , from router how should i connect to my another system

if the router is wireless and the new system is wireless ready then the router should pick up the signal fine and run the internet smoothly however some routers come with a security key examples WEP, WPA, WPA 2 these are the most common forms of security if this is the case you will have to enter the key on the router or in the User Manual before you have internet access... if the router is not wireless then you simply buy a new ethernet cable which now are fairly cheap if you know where to go depending on size and plug it in to the router and the appropriate slot on the computer system and this should connect you to the internet... if you system is not wireless but your router is you can now buy wireless cards that fit into the computer which recieves the signal from the router or a wireless adapter which does the same but plugs in via USB. any other information please feel free to talk to me but these options should solve your issue

My router is connecting to the network and broardcasting the internal netowrk but not broardcasting any internet. The internet connection work fine if i plug the wire straight into my computer.

To connect to the router using a wireless connection, the computer's wireless card needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings, ie. SSID and encryption key.
The encryption key is configured in the router's wireless settings.
I suggest you use WPA or WPA2 encryption because it is the latest and provides stronger protection.

To change or see the encryption key and/or secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

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.

Unable to use wireless feature on second computer on the network

The second computer's wireless card may not have the latest wireless card driver installed or it is not enabled and working. Check Device manager to see if is is working and enabled. I suggest you install the latest wireless card driver.
Next check the wireless card configuration, it needs to have the wireless router's settings, ie SSID and encryption etc.

The router has #3 link/act lighted up (LAN) and when i connect to internet with router it says limited connectivity, but internet works fine with modem?

I assume you are getting this on your wireless connection.
Sometime you get this message because the computer's wireless card didn't get a issued with an IP address from the wireless router when you opened the browser. This can occur when you power up both the computer and the router at the same time, but the router had not finished booting up in time to issue an IP address to the computer.
You can right click on the wireless icon on the Task Bar and then click Repair, this will force the wireless router to issue a new IP address to the wireless card. When the wireless card gets an IP address then you can access the Internet.
