Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

2 Answers

My linksys wrt54g was working fine. WE moved my computer and it stopped working. I reinstalled the driver and when it came to the point of trying to recognize if the router was connected it could not find it. The power and the 1,2,3,4 and internet lights are always on. I thought the 1 light should be the only one on when you plug in your cable. I know that my cables are good because i tried several. when i plug my cable from my router to the back of my cpu the cable does not light up but does when it goes from the cable box to the cpu. Any idea why it is not working. Called linksys and they told me it would cost #30 to get it fixed because my warrenty just ran out.

A hard reset might be what you require in this case because of all the indication leds being on, but often if all you have done is move it then it might simply that you need to turn it all on in the right order for the ip assignment to work. Cable modem first, then router then PC allowing each one a few seconds to boot.
(A soft reset of the router should allow the router to re-establish ip's)

The lights on your router indicate a firmware problem. To fix it, you need to hard reset the router. Press the reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power. Wait for a minute before you plug it back in. Check the lights again. That should fix it.

Have 2 computer's in home, on will link t network, other will not even bring up network when attemptingto get on internet via router


Hello,

Usually under these circumstances, one of your computers may not have a compatible wireless network card. An example would be if your computer has a Wireless G Network Card and your router is Wireless N, you might run into problems. You can try reinstalling the drivers for your Network Card. You can also go to the Linksys website and install the installation utility to set up the connection from scratch again.

The router itself is fine, it's the wireless card in your computer that isn't finding the router.

Trying to reinstall a Linksys WRT54G that was previously working (but not very well, slowed down the desktop that was hard wired). I don't know that old password or even name. I'm trying to install just...


On your desktop, open your browser and navigate to http://192.168.1.1 . If it asks you for username and password, enter admin in both fields. You should then be in the Linksys setup application. Can you get to that point?

Taking forever to configure computer on reinstallation of wrt54g


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

WRT54G


No. The same adapter should work. If it is USB try moving it to a different USB port. If it is internal then try reinstalling the CD that came with it.

Linksys WAP54G connection to WRT54G


Ok, so why do you need an access point upstairs and a router downstairs connected wirelessly? If you can't connect with a laptop or a pc, why whould you think you could connect the access point? The purpose of this configuration would have to be with the access point to the router via ethernet. What's the point? If the problem is range, check out http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php to enhance the capabilities of the WRT54G... and maybe building a parabolic antenna for it as well. Plans to do so abound at Lifehacker.com.
