I am not able to connect to the internet using my Linksys WRT54G V8. When I connect the cable directly to my laptop, I am able to access the internet, so it is definitely a problem with the wireless...


Title: Setting-Up a Wired Computer to Obtain an IP Address Automatically Article ID: 4033
Configuring a wired computer to get an IP address automatically will enable it to get an IP address from a DHCP server. Instead of manually entering the IP settings which will consume much time, performing this procedure will ensure that the computer will get the correct TCP/IP settings.
Configuring a computer to get an IP address automatically is useful when:
  • Connecting a computer to a network with a DHCP server. Ensuring that the computer is getting the correct TCP/IP settings.
To configure a computer to automatically get an IP address, you have to check the TCP/IP properties of the Ethernet Adapter installed on the computer. Follow the steps below for instructions.
NOTE: Make sure the wired computer is properly connected to a network with a DHCP server.
Checking if the Computer is Set to DHCP

Im tryig to piggyback my wrt54g router to another part of the house. I have a cable coming from my linksys e1000 n router which is my main router. When i plug the cable into the 54g i can access the router...


What is the IP address of the E1000 router ?
If the IP address of E1000 router is 192.168.1.1, Then change the IP address of WRT54G router to 192.168.1.2. Connect the Ethernet cable from the Ethernet port of E1000 router to the Ethernet port of WRT54G router ( port 1 of E1000 to port 1 of WRT54g). Disable the DHCP server.

You can do it in a different way also.
If the IP address of E1000 is 192.168.1.1. then change the IP address of the WRT54g to 192.168.2.1. Do not disable the DHCP server of the WRT54G. Connect the E1000 to the Internet port of WRT54G.

I have a WRT54G router and want to daisy chain a Linksys BEFSR41 switch off it, but I seem to be doing it wrong...


Not sure if you just want to expand the amont of computer you can connect to it or the wireless range but I would setup the BEFSR41:
  • Disable DHCP
  • Set an address out of the DHCP scope of the WRT54G
  • Connect them LAN to LAN if not use xover to connect them

How to cennecting Aztech modem DSL600E with Router linksys WRT54G


First!
Do you have a connection in your modem?
if you do, you need to set up the linksys router in DHCP internet set up.
To have access to the linksys you need to go to:
http://192.168.1.1
The password it's admin
and the username in blank (no password)
change the internet setup to DHCP

Make sure you don't have the Same address for 192.168.1.1 or you modem cause if you do you'll need to change the ip address on the linksys router...

Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G doesn't send a wireless signal out anymore. I did the driver update and still doesnt work.


1. check the RJ 45 cable see if you are getting a signal through a hard connection if not go in to the router and check the status. You may have to reset the router and to release/ renew the IP in the router. Call Linksys for there support they will be happy to do check-sums to see if the router is defective. you can also check their site for troubleshooting to check the router to see if there is a malfunction.

Using Linksys WRT54G as router connected to ActionTec with FIOS


You must keep everything on the same subnet. Only allow the router to be DHCP and keep everything on 192.168.1.x subnet. You are going to have alot of problems talking across subnets
