Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

Wireless-G Broadband Router Failure.

I have a router that I set up and it worked just fine for quite a while, the all of a suddent, the router goes out and I don't know what to do to fix it.

It has gone out numerous times after it has been fixed by other people. I would plug in my modem and my router, then my desktop can't get internet, then I check both my laptops and they can't detect the internet also.

I need help! I want to be able to fix it on my own.

    It's a Linksys Wireless G Broadband router.

    It uses wires, but then I don't use wires to connect it to my laptop.

    The model is WRT54G.

Several things could be happening. 1st I need the model and manufacturer of the router. It would be helpful to know what firmware version it is using. I also need to know if you are using it wired or wireless. Then we can troubleshoot the problem.

No wireless connection :(

If you have your broadband configuration info written down, you could try resetting your router to the factory default settings and then re-configure it.

For most broadband connections, the default settings will work OK, but you should configure your router with a secure administrator password and wireless key.

The user manual for the router as well as configuration software can be found here:

Youe broadband router is working ok with the broadband cable.So it is configured with the broadband cable.Now,to work with the wireless internet,you have to configured the wi-fi router to work internet.You can see the wi-fi connection but unless & untill you will configure wi-fi router it must not work or if before it was working with the wi-fi then you can check the wi-fi router setting because it might change by mistake.Surely it will work after configurating wi-fi router.
