Re: wireless on pc will not connect

What you should do is try another card on that computer and/or try the current card on another computer just to see if it is the PCMIA Card's problem

WRT300N dosnt connect

if your connection (isp) is CABLE you will need to clone the mac of the main computer.

For cable connection verify what computer can go online with your modem, once you know the main pc connect it to port one, access the routers setup page by typing then locate MAC ADDRESS CLONE in line with basic setup. enable it click the macclone button then save settings.
connect your modem to the internet port on the router, do a power cycle on the modem and router.
then check the status tab on the linksys setup page if you have numbers on the dns it should be online.

Wireless connection of netgear wireless router for compaq laptop

When you look on the box that the router came in, you have to look to see what Operating Systems it is compatible with. In many cases, routers will not be compatible with vista. I have a Linksys WRT300N, and it works great with Vista.Hope this helps.

Local access only

hmmm... with those settings, the Vista machine SHOULD be working...

when you open internet explorer on the vista machine, can you go to tools, internet options, and then the connections tab?

along the bottom there should be an option for lan settings. click on that, and then make certain that 'automatically detect settings' is checked, and that everything else is blank.

then restart internet explorer.

what sort of error message do you get now, if you try to go to, say,

Not Connecting On Wireless

make sure your modem is connected to the INTERNET PORT of the WRT300N. wired pc must have an ip address of 192.168.1.x so we can say that the internet is really coming from the wrt300n

Try these steps:

1. First of all connect your PC Directly with Modem & check if you're able to go online or not.

2. If No , then contact your ISP.

3. If yes ,Disconnect CAT5 cable coming out of Modem from PC & connect into WAN port (on rear panel you'll find it) of Linksys WRT300N Router , After that on rear panel you'll find small hole with a Reset button inside it. Use needle or pen to press it quiet hard for 1 minutes continuosly, This'll restore all default settings.

4. After that give static IP - to your PC ,subnet mask ,default gateway - & connect your PC directly with a LAN port on the back side of Router.

5. After that type in the address bar of your explorer & login window will come , type username = admin & leave password field blank, then you'll get Blue coloured Router configuration page, From this page you can configure your Router.

6.Now if your Internet connection is Cable then default setting will work for you, However for DSL connection ,on this page you'll find internet connection type - selectiondrop down box - select PPPoE into it for DSL connection.

7. After that restart your computer & you should be able to go online.

Need the driver for Linksys WRT300N V1 ... can't find the CD


The LINKSYS WRT300N is a standalone device, there are no software/driver needed on your PC for the router to work. However, there is an easy Setup Wizard that is in the CD that normally comes with the unit.

Unfortunately, Linksys did not make the specific Setup Wizard (Version 1.3) for the WRT300N available online. However, if you care to try the Setup Wizard for a WRT54GC, it may downloaded from the LINKSYS ftp site here. I used to have a WRT54G and I did make use of the Setup Wizard for that model. I upgraded to WRT300N. The setup wizard for the old WRT54G worked likewise on the new WRT300N.

Alternately, the WRT300N can still be configured without the CD or the Setup Wizard by logging into the Configuration Page ( Remember to use LAN interface when setting the router (as shown in the connection diagram) and set your PC to an IP Address of, Subnet Mask of; Follow on screen instructions and enter settings/configurations manually.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information. Additionally, if you still prefer to have a copy of the original WRT300N Setup Wizard, pls include your email address that I may send it to you as an attachment.

Good luck and kind regards.
