I cant get a wireless signal - Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

    Have you tried a hard reset of the router? There is a little red button on the back you have to push down with a pen for about 10 sec until the router blinks but you will lose all pre-programmed ISP connection info that was previously in there that would connect you online. If you originally set it up before then you're probably going to have to set it all up again. Change your password too just to ensure if this was done maliciously, it won't happen again.

The Linksys wireless router needs the wireless settings configured and then the wireless card in the computer with these settings so it can communicate with the wireless router.
To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Wireless light is on but get no signal


Have you tried with another computer to isolate the issue, weather its from the router or the computer.
If same problem persists with another computer, maybe the router is set not to broadcast the SSID.

Welcome to FixYa.

You have to access your router's configuration page, go to the wireless settings then broadcast the SSID.

This is a generic answer. If you want detailed instructions, please post back and include the make and model of your router, and the operating system of your laptop.

Thank you for posting your question at FixYa.

Testerday we connected to xbox live but today we cant connect why


Are you wireless or are you wired. If you are wireless, sometimes phone signals interrupt the wireless signals if you have a wireless phone nearby. Some wireless phones are very messy with the signals they send.

Cant switch on wireless connection on a evesham8555


Makesure your computer is not too far away from your wireless router andyou have a good signal. By placing your mouse pointer over the wirelessconnection icon, located in the bottom right corner of your taskbar, you cancheck to see if your signal strength is good. Anything less than a good signalcan cause intermittent connections.
SOLUTION:You will need to relocate your wireless router closer to your computer.

1. Try a power cycle / reset of the router, if it is not transmitting signals 2. If your computer is not getting signals at all, ( not even your neighbor's ) , try uninstalling the wireless card and installing it again 3. Make sure you the wireless switch in your computer turned on
Thanks Ranjit

Laptop driver needed


Hello,

You dont need a driver for the wireless router. If your laptop can recieve wireless signal(from a wireless router) all you need is an active internet connection, configure the laptop and router to distribute the internet, you're good to go.

If your laptop cant recieve a wireless signal from a wireless router then you might need a USB Wifi Dongle.

I cant access internet exp. from my laptop even with good signal


Access the preferred network settings (if you are using the Windows wireless setup - right click on the wireless icon + view available wireless networks + preferred networks) for your machine and edit the listing for your wireless network, you'll need to uncheck the box that says something to the effect of "an authentication key is provided for me" and enter your security key in the boxes provided.

If it still fails - you may want to remove your network from the preferred listing and add it manually, making sure that the authentication is turned off as described and with your security key entered twice.

My netgear adapter sometimes cant find my 2 wire dsl signal


What signal strength do you get when you connect?

Is the router buried underneath or inside a cabinet or anything?

Consider relocating the router away from other objects (particularly metal items), or on the outside of any type of cabinet.
