I have a Dell D510 with 2200BG connecting to a linksys WRT54GS router. Typically I just click out of my browser and close the laptop. When I open it again later for use, the computer makes the wireless network connection, but the browser cannot find/connect to the ISP server (most of the time) until I restart the computer. This is annoying. Any ideas as to what might cause this?

That means that your router is functioning properly on your network, communicating with other devices, but your ISP (Internet service provider) connection is malfunctioning, out of service, or otherwise experiencing a problem. Your router can't connect to the Internet because of a problem somewhere between the router and your ISP, or your ISP and the Internet.
Configure the Router1.Step 1 Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter." 2.Step 2 Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank. 3.Step 3 Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup." 4.Step 4 Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP. 5.Step 5 Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password. 6.Step 6 Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.
The WRT54GS router from Linksys is a wireless-G broadband router. This
router lets the user access the Internet through a wireless connection
as well as use it to share resources among computers on the network.
The Linksys WRT54GS comes with a CD-ROM, which will run a Setup Wizard
to walk you through configuring your router. Without the CD-ROM,
configuration can be done through the router's web-based utility.
your web browser, then type 192.168.1.1 in the address field. Press
"Enter". On the password screen, leave the user name blank. Use admin
for the password. Click "OK".
Select the appropriate Internet setup settings in the Setup>Basic screen. Many of these settings are obtained from your Internet Service
Prvider (ISP). Other than the settings obtained from your ISP, the
default settings should work for most network applications. Set the
time zone in the "Time Zone" field. Click "Save Changes" before
navigating away from this screen.
the appropriate wireless standard from the drop down menu in
Setup>Basic Wireless Settings. If in doubt as to your wireless
standard, leave the default selection at "Mixed'. This will work for
most network applications. Type a name for the Wireless Network
Name. This name must be identical for all wireless devices on the
network. Click "Save Settings" before navigating away from this screen.
Select the appropriate security method for your wireless network in the "Wireless>Wireless Security"
screen. If you do not wish to utilize security, leave the default
setting of "Disabled". It is recommended to use some form of security
for your wireless network. Whether you use WPA or WEP security, all
devices on your wireless network must use the same encryption method
and encryption key. Click "Save Settings" before navigating away from
Reboot the router so all the changes take effect.
If you had your linksys router controlling the DSL connection, it was most likely a PPPoe connection requiring a username and password. Most cable companies have dynamic IP address and do not require a username or password.
Open your internet browser, IE, Firefox etc and go to 192.168.1.1 > Enter your router username and password, typically admin and admin
In the setup tab, change your connection FROM whatever is listed there and make sure it is Autumatic DHCP Save your settings, and restart the router.
Wow! You have done a great first step to your solution. Since the router bypass (direct to your modem) works, you answered my first question of the user/password.
You need to find the ISP's configuration requirements. Typically, it is just the DNS IP, Subnet mask and Gateway IP. If your ISP requires proxy, or other protocols, I have not configured for that -- so hopefully you just need the config as stated. Find the admin screens in the router and plug in these values. The from another browser session -- try to hit a public website like www.google.com (my favorite).
Also, if that does not work, open a command prompt and see if you can "ping" the DNS and Gateway servers. That is not always conclusive as some servers refust to respone to PING. The ISP typically leaves that available for such troubleshooting.

This is a common problem with the Linksys wireless router. You will need to reset your ISP device, meaning the ADSL router, or Cable modem, reset the Linksys device, and reboot your computer in that order.
Next you "should" release the IP address of your computer once it reboots to Windows (assumed). To do this you click on RUN, type in CMD to get a DOS window. From that window type in "ipconfig /release" without the quotes. Then close the window. Reboot the comptuer again.
You will NEXT need to determine which device is acting as the DHCP server, the ISP device or the Linksys device. To do this you will need to open up the CMD window again but type in "ipconfig /all" without the quotes. If your ISP device is listed first, then it is likely the server for all available IP adress on your local network. This means that the Linksys has been assigned a new IP address. The Linksys must be the DHCP server in this case so that it may be accessed through 192.168.1.1 from your browser address.
To make the Linksys the DHCP server, you must connect your ISP device to the Ethernet uplink port on the back of the Linksys router. The Linksys router may then be connected to a Ethernet hub or act as your hub if you have no other.
If you want to set the router to work only as a switch with wireless access point, you may need to get into its setup page and adjust some settings.
Using a computer that is wired directly to one of the router's Ethernet ports, launch IE and type 192.168.1.1. It is the default IP address of the router. Then it will open a window, asking for a username and password. By default, there is no username and the password is admin.
Once you're in the router's User Interface, look for a sub tab called "Advanced Routing" under the main tab SETUP. Then set router mode to "Router" instead of Gateway. In some router's, the choice there is NAT enable or disable. If it is the one showing there instead of Router mode, then set NAT to disable. Click Save settings which is located at the bottom portion of the screen.
Then click on "Basic Setup" and then disable DHCP server. Save the settings then.
Then your modem now will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router.
are you sure what is configuration you do is correct . i mean that your isp details and all those thing. if you using the wired then you have to put the cable of isp in the wan port and other to the lan port. and see the proxy server is there or not if there then leave it. and which type of connection you using static ip,dynamic ip, or pppoe connection in that also you have know it.
if you using the wireless then go and disable the proxey server and give the right configuration..
The first thing we need to insure is that you are connecting to this router via cable and not wirelessly, though it is possible to configure the router via a wireless connection it is very much not recommended for various reasons. If you ARE connecting via wire, please be specific as to what happens after you enter 18.104.22.168 in the HTTP line of your browser.
