If the software wasn't made to be installed on Vista then you need to access the Web interface of the router .. first connect the router to the PC using Ethernet cable then open internet explorer and type 192.168.1.1 .. when asked for username and password, type Admin for each ... now you can configure the settings manually.

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.

I have a Linksys wrt54g router and once installed, it works, but after a few hours, I have to set it up like I did originally. I have to go through set up all over again.


I think you will need to upgrade the firmwatr of the router. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, press the reset on the router for 30 seconds, unplug the power and plug it back in.
Wait for 1 minute and then reconfigure the router manually by opening the set up page of the router.

I am having a problem replacing the firmware in my Linksys Wireless-g wrt54g v5 router. I have downloaded the tptp.exe file that lets me upgrade the firware manually and it says error connecting to the...


I don't know where you downloaded the "tptp.exe" file, but I can tell you right away that this is not the right format for upgrading a firmware. You should have a file with the ending ".bin" downloaded instead.

If you are using Linksys firmware, go here and download the file "FW_WRT54Gv5v6_1.02.7.011_EN_20090727.bin".

  1. Connect to your router with an Ethernet cable. Do NOT do this wireless!!!
  2. Log into your router and go to the "Administration" tab. Follow the link to "Firmware Upgrade".
  3. Browse for the file you downloaded before.
  4. Press the "Upgrade" button.
  5. Now take your hands off the keyboard and mouse!
    Leave the page alone and don't touch your router until the upgrade is finished and the router has rebooted. Go get a coffee or something, but leave your computer alone until it's done.
    I really can't stress this point enough - I have seen several dead routers due to impatience.
If you are running any third party firmware (Tomato, DD-WRT, etc.), let me know, but the upgrade process is pretty much the same (especially point 5.;-)

If you have any more questions with any of theses steps, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Firmware Upgrade Failed


Firmware upgrade is a simple but a delicate procedure. Make sure you are loading the correct firmware. You should get your firmware from the website of your router. Installing a THIRD PARTY firmware to your router voids the warranty of your router. Here is a tip for a successful firmware upgrade. BEFORE FIRMWARE UPGRADE(push the reset button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power of the router for 10 seconds). Upgrade the firmware. After the upgrade push the reset button again for 30seconds, unplug power for 10 seconds.

Compatibility between linksys WRT54G Router and Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Driver


from what you say, it sounds as if you have your wired and wireless card connected at the same time. This will confuse the router as it is trying to give two different ip addresses to the one pc, which it cannot do. If you are using the wireless adapter, make sure you dissable the wired adapter as the router will continually look for the wired ip address while allocating your wireless adapter causing instability. Next ensure you have a good clear signal from router to notebook as this can obviously cause problems. Lastly ensure that the wireless cards TCP/IP properties are set to obtain ip address automatically, especially if your router is DHCP enabled to allocate ip addresses automatically.

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.
