Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I own a Linksys wireless-G model wrt54g v-8 the problem is that I do get wireless signal from the router (full bars) but I can not get internet access on my laptop. I also tried plugin in the ethernet cable to the laptop and still dont have internet access.
You didn't specify if you're using DSL or Cable internet.
With DSL, keep in mind the software on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to connect.
If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.

You are not getting access b/c the router hasn't assigned you an ip address yet.
make sure you use dhcp on the router to give you an ip address. if you are using wireless with encryption you will need to enter the network key for it to work.
alternatively plug it in the lan cable go to network connections right mouse click select tcp/ip and assign yourself an ip address.
gateway is 192.168.1.1
dns should be auto matic.

1. Using a computer that is plugged into the router directly with a network cable, open a web browser.
2. In the "Address Bar" type http://192.168.1.1 and press Enter.
A box should appear asking for a "User Name" and a "Password". Leave
the "User Name" field empty, and type your WRT54G router password into
the "Password" field (the default "Password" is admin) and click the OK button or press [Enter].
4. The WRT54G "Setup" page should now appear. Click onto the Wireless page.
5. When the "Wireless" page loads, you should be on the Basic Wireless Settings sub-section.
6. Look for the "Wireless Channel" option. The default channel is set to "6 - 2.437GHz". Change it to either "1 - 2.412GHz", or "11 - 2.462GHz".
7. Click on the Save Settings button toward the bottom of the page to save changes. Click Continue when prompted to reload the page.
The channel of your WRT54G has now been changed. Restart your wireless
computers so that they can automatically connect using the new channel.
If you still experiencing interference using channels 1, 6, or 11, try
switching the router to the other channels as well (2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9,
10) and find one that captures a good connection.
