Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)

1 Answer

I trying to fix a small office network and need some help. I have a netgear ds116 hub that currently has a linksys WAP54G access point connected to it for wireless access. The access point is not encypted and no in the office nows the passwords to get into the setting thru 192.168.1.1. I tried to do a hard reset on it. No help. Also the linksys access point for some reason has SONICWALL firmware on it. I am thinking my best option it to just swap out the access point for a extra wireless router I have at home. I have a linksys wrt54gs. I tried to just swap the access point and the wireless router and could not get any data form the internet. Is there something I need to configure on the wireless router?

So have a hub and a wireless access point at office.
Do u have a router in the network at office ?
The default IP address of the WAP54G will be 192.168.1.245.
The Sonic firewall is a different thing.
I think you are accessing the set up interface of the sonic wall with the IP address 192.168.1.1.
Where is the access point connected ?
Is it connected to the sonic firewall ?
The access point does not have the DHCP server.

My access point works fine for about an hour then the act indicator goes off and it becomes undiscoverable for my laptop. what is the solution?


Ensure that your laptop WIFI is correctly setup and specifically turn on the option:
'connect even if the network is not broadcasting its name SSID'.

If it does not help, try the followings in order:
  • Reset the router (make sure that you backup your current router setup or know how to reload i / reconfigure).
  • Change Wifi Channel on your router as the current channel frequency might be clashing with other wireless devices (handsfree?).
Good luck!

OK. I have the Linksys WAP54g and I am trying to link another computer in my home to this one. I have ethernet and 2 wire. It won't connect. Please help me out here. Thanks, Russell


You must be more PRECIS with your question... What I understand is that you want to connect two computers to the WAP54G (wireless Access Point)??? an than you mention wires ??? if it's because the Access Point is set up to bridge with an other wireless network you can not hard wire two computers to the AP (since it has only one port) unless you have a multi port SWITCH staked/connected to the AP, if the AP is set up to broadcast a WIFI connection than you just need to set up the second computer with the same information as the one all ready working (SSID, ENCHRYPTION KEY, etc...) if it's because you are trying to NAT one computer connected to the AP to an other computer through hard wire, than you need a switch and a good understanding of networking to share a single network connection with two computers...

Hey !
you said that you that you reset the WAP54G , the default IP address address of WAP is 192.168.1.245.
The IP address that you tried ( 192.168.1.1 ) must be the IP addres of the sonic firewall which might be acting as a DHCP server.
To access the WAP54G set up. you will need to connect the computer to the HUB and the WPA to the hub with the cable and then try to access WPA with the IP address 192.168.1.245

I have a netgear ds116 hub and i want to set up a linksys router


Here's what you can do. Don't connect the Linksys router yet to the hub. Connect 1 computer directly to the Linksys router. Access the router's setup page of the Linksys router thru http://192.168.1.1

It will prompt you for username and password. No username and password is admin.

Look for Local IP Address or LAN IP Address. Change the LAN or Local IP Address of the Linksys router to 192.168.5.1 then click on Save Settings at the bottom. Right after saving the settings, unplug the power of the Linksys router, connect it to the hub and it should be good to go.

Wireless-G LinkSys Model WAP54G random Internet Access


i think the problem is that when there are a number of pc's sharing the same wireless network the bandwith has to be shared and can be with upto 255 pc's. Connecting 255 computers to a single WiFi access point, while theoretically possible, is not recommended. Performance of such a network will be very poor. Install multiple access points instead to distribute the network load. By adding more access points to the network, effectively any number of computers can be supported (though the network becomes progressively more difficult to manage). On a home network, while dozens of computers and other devices may connect to the router, the performance of a shared Internet connection will quickly degrade as more computers access the Web simultaneously.

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.

Getting The WRE54G To Connect With The WRT54G


The WRT54G, WRT54GS, and WAP54G all must have the latest firmware versions available installed in order to connect with the WRE54G Wireless-G Range Expander. Here are the minimum firmware version requirements that you must meet: * WRT54G (all versions): at least firmware version 2.02.2 * WRT54GS: at least firmware version 2.07.1 * WAP54G (all versions) : at least firmware version 2.07 To Identify your WAP54G Version Number: To find out which version of the WAP54G you currently have, flip your Access Point over to look at its underside. Near the serial number label, near the Linksys© logo, you will see your model number and a possible version. Labels for the WAP54G version will look like one of the following: * WAP54G (no version means Version 1) * WAP54G ver. 1.1 * WAP54G v. 2 For WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 Users ONLY: (if you have a WAP54G Version 2, you may proceed with the 2.07 or later firmware upgrade) NOTE: Before upgrading the WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 models to firmware version 2.07 or later, make sure your Access Point?s current firmware is version 1.09.1 beforehand. The version 1.09.1 code performs an important OS upgrade for these versions of the Access Point -- it must be loaded before using later firmware.
