Welcome to FixYa!

For you to be able to do that, you will need to set the SMC router to bridge mode, you will not be able to do that by yourself because only tech from your ISP have the capability of doing that since they have this tool that can operate on the router setting it to bridgemode. Basically, you will need to call your ISP to set the router to bridgemode and from there, you will be able to configure the linksys router.
Hope this information will help.

Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!

In your router settings, look for something like "wireless radio" and make sure that is enabled. It sounds like your wireless is disabled.


On your laptop, your wireless card may be disabled. Are you able to scan and locate other wireless networks on your laptop?

Try changing the MTU value of your router and see if this will fix the problem.

For Cable ISP: MTU = 1500
For DSL ISP : MTU = 1472

Or contact your ISP to set the correct MT size

Check the IP address on the Vista wireless network connection. Make sure that there is not static IP address on the wireless connection. That could be one of the reason.

You will need a wireless router with a built in switch. Most of them these days will have a built in switch. Here is a picture detailing what I am talking about.

You're internet connection goes into the ADSL port. Now, it will be broadcast WIRELESSLY through the antenna to your laptop. With this example, you could connect 4 more WIRED computers through the LAN ports. The built in switch is the division of the connection into the separate LAN ports.

I trust that this will help you greatly and look forward to your response!

first a couple of things.
if your router has wireless support your laptop (if new) should have a wireless adapter built in, so basically your destop computer can be wirely plugged into the router and your laptop shoud "connect wirelessly" to your adapter
so this is how your set up should look like

--cable-- = - cablemodem - = linksys router = ----- wire----- desktop

--cable-- = - cablemodem - = linksys router = ))wireless))) laptop

you need read up a bit, here are some links that will have info you need

manual for wireless configuration (select the proper revision for your router and check user manual)

configure wireless network for vista

read up and if you have any questions post back.

hope that helps.

Cant connect 2 laptops through linsky wrt54g is this possible

are you connecting the laptop hard wired or wirelessly?

for wired connection, just plug the ethernet cable from the router to the laptop and it should work fine.

for the wireless connection, check on the wireless network connection. for xp, click on start> control panel> network connections> right click wireless network connection> then click on view available wireless network> then select your network.. for secure wireless connection, type the security key then click connect. :-)

Wireless router dropping then disappeared

There are two possible generic reasons I have found in reviewing internet posts.

One claims there may be a windows issue with hiding the SSID (or router name) and enabling WEP or WPA secure/encrypted wireless connections and random disconnections of service to the wireless adapter. The recommended solution is not to hide the SSID (or router name) and maintain the WEP or WPA secure/encrypted service.

Another claims that there may be an "overload" of requirements on a specific wireless channel in your area (sometimes by non routers such as wireless phones). Many routers default to channel 6. I you have a wireless monitor on a PC that shows routers and their channel assignments nearby -- if everyone is on channel 6 you may want to move to channel 1 or 11 and see if your device works better. There are some wireless routers with capability for 108mbs transmission rates that actually transmit on two channels at once that could be affecting your response so if channel 1 does not work try channel 11 or vice versa.
