Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Connection When I go into a site such as Sears for example, and I click on outlet, my screen eventually says "cannot display webpage". I then click back, then outlet again, and it comes right up. This also happens to the e-mail and most everything else. My ISP provider seems to think it is my router, as the high speed lite is working fine. Hope you can help me.

Re: connection

Your first test should be to bypass the router and connect the computer that is having the problem directly into your ISP's modem. If the problem goes away then there are three possibilites:

1. The router is configured incorrectly.

2. The router needs a firmware update.

3. The router is defective.

I cannot able to open my yahoo login webpage in my leptop.

Okay - this might be a DNS issue.

Press start > Run > Type in cmd then try to ping the site from your ISP connection Example: ping

If your using DSL your ISP might need to refresh their DNS in order for you to see the site. It looks like the DNS has dropped for some reason or another in the last week as I can't see the web site as well from Australia however when connecting from the US I can see the site just fine. Just depends on the ISP your on and if their had problems with their connection

Describe your cannot connect my cga5722 wireless

well you need to reset your router wireless config, your isp dont do this, you need to config yourself, but i give some help. try these manual steps:
4.1 Log on the webpages
Open your Internet Browser
Enter in the address field
Click on GO
• The following webpage will be displayed
The only default language is English.
To access the required webpage, click on the corresponding tab on
the left side of the page.
Webpages’ menu structure
The table below describes the menu tree of the webpages.
4.3 ADSL/Internet Settings webpages
4.3.1 ADSL status
Click on "ADSL Status" which is located on the left side of the screen.
SET UP WIZARD Getting started
Wireless settings
ADSL settings
The ADSL Wireless Base Station also operates as a wireless access
point, allowing wireless computers to communicate with each other. To
configure this function, you need to enable the wireless function, define
the radio channel, the domain identifier, and the security options.
Check Enable and click "SAVE SETTINGS".
You must specify a common radio channel and SSID (Service Set ID) to
be used by the ADSL Wireless Base Station and all of its wireless clients.
Make sure you configure all of its clients to the same values.
Access Control allows users to define the outgoing traffic permitted or
not-permitted through the WAN interface. The default is to permit all
outgoing traffic.
If the signal strength of a single wireless base station is not sufficient due
to a large coverage area or attenuation due to walls, with WDS the
range of a wireless base station can be extended.
All base stations in a Wireless Distribution System must be configured
with the same radio channel, and encryption type (WEP/WPA) if that is

You said that the Internet connection is dropping. It is a modem *** router.
If there is any MTU settings , then reduce the MTU.
For example If MTU is 1500 then reduce it to 1400.
Otherwise you will need to upgrade the Firmware of the router.

Does anyone know how to secure my internet site. At this point anyone can access

You'll need to go into the router's webpage. Check your operation manual for the default webpage address and access login/password.

Within the main menu you should be able to find security settings for your wireless configuration.

You have'nt specified whether your pc is connected to netgear or not. If yes then firstly it should be hard wired into the router to check connectivity.

it will display the ip address
if ip address is
and default gateway is and still you're not able to open webpages run this command in the same command prompt screen netsh winsock reset catalog.......
You''ll be able to access webpages...
If ip address comes out to be something else get the drivers of nic card reinstalled on your PC.
