Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
This is not a solution this is diagnosis.
First it is clear your wireless communicationis failing.
Can you attach with a wire such as an ethernet cable to the router (not bypassing the router directly to the ISP's equipment)?
If yes was that tested and did it work?
If not you may have a configuration issue with you ISP on the WAN or modem side of the router. Or you may have the gateway address set incorrectly. Or you may be missing DNS addresses to access sites by name.
I will need the ISP's name or support web site address to assist with the above
If the above works on to the wireless connection.
Does the wireless router and wireless adapter (built-in or add-on) share a common communication band (a, b, g or n)? if not that is an issue.
When attempting to connect can you see your routers name?
Was the name changed from the default to assure it is not your neighbor's router?
Did you apply encryption (WEP or WPA) to either the router or the wireless adapter and not to the other device?
Do you have MAC Filtering turned on in the router and failed to add the MAC address of the wireless adapter?
If statically addressed do the wireless adapters have valid unique addresses in the router's subnet? A subnet mask that matches the router's? The router's address as the default gateway? One or more valid DNS addresses?
If dynamically addressed does the DHCP server provide all of the above? If not (possibly DNS) is it properly configured into the wireless adapter.
Please answer the above in a response and I will attempt to provide some additional steps to determine the issue and generate a solution.
