I set the SSID, WEP password, etc, but when I click on the desktop tray to gain access, nothing happens. The pop up shows the correct router name and excellent signal, but no internet...

Try resetting the modem by using the reset button or unplugging it for a few seconds then back in. After all the connections lights are back on for your modem then pres the reset button on the router so it resets. Then check the connection on the computer and see if the internet is available. If not try hooking the computer directly with the router with a LAN cable and see if you are able to accsess the internet. If it works then it is a wireless connection issue. If it does not then try connecting directly to the modem and see if you get an internet connection. If you get a connection directly from the modem then it is a problem with the router settings. Let me know what you find so I can assist you further.

    Does the internet work when the computer is hooked up directly to the router with a lan cable or not? Does the internet work when the computer is hooked up directly to the modem or not? Could be the router settings. You will need to know what settings you internet service provider requires and then change them in the router settings menu.

Take your ethernet cable from the wan port and plug it into the lan port.

    Do a wireless scan on your computer. Your router could be sharing a channel with a neighbor. I had this problem myself. I had channel 11 then he went to 11 I had to drop back to 3, now it is working.

My computor will not recognize linksys


The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer/laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I cannot set up my Linksys wireless router model number:WRT54GS to work properly. I have a desktop computer with Windows XP operating sysyem. I have three other laptop computers with wireless components


Hi,

The easiest would be to connect your desktop straight to your modem and verify that you can connect to the Internet. Do not use the LinkSys WRT54GS yet. Pop in the CD that came with the WiFi Router and run the setup wizard. Follow exactly on screen instructions. Verify that your desktop's networking is set to auto obtain IP address.

Alternately, you can try:
1. connect your desktop with a straight through LAN cable to Ethernet Port #1 of the WRT54GS;
2. set your desktop to use IP-192.168.1.10, Subnet Mask-255.255.255.0, Default Gateway-192.168.1.1;
3. open a browser and goto 192.168.1.1. use the LinkSys supplied username and password;
4. verify/configure/set the LinkSys to your preference;
5. for the time being do not use any security keyphrase, WEP WPA or MAC filter;
6. verify that your laptops could see the router's SSID;
7. verify that all laptops are set to auto obtain IP addresses;

If for some reason neither method will not work, pls post back with your modem's make & model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
