Question about Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG 802.11g/b

1 Answer

Reboot necessary to find ISP server

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?

2200BG is a very old Intel wireless card. Its driver had a lot of issues that were fixed over the years. Try the latest driver from Intel site: (make sure to choose correct OS).

Will not connect to internet. no drivers in computer

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.
  1. p 1 Launch your web browser, then type in the address field. Press "Enter". On the password screen, leave the user name blank. Use admin for the password. Click "OK".
  2. Step 2 Select the appropriate Internet setup settings in the Setup>Basic screen. Many of these settings are obtained from your Internet Servicemag-glass_10x10.gif 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.
  3. Step 3 Select 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 Networkmag-glass_10x10.gif Name. This name must be identical for all wireless devices on the network. Click "Save Settings" before navigating away from this screen.
  4. Step 4 Select the appropriate security method for your wireless network in the "Wireless>Wireless Securitymag-glass_10x10.gif" 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 this screen.
  5. Step 5 Reboot the router so all the changes take effect.

Switched from DSL modem to Cable modem. Linksys

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 >
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.

You should be fine.

With a DSL modem in the US, you need to confiugre the router for PPPOE with the username/password that was provided to you by your ISP. If you can't remember the name or password, contact your ISP

Cannot connect to the internet or access DSL modem

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 (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.

if you need the manual, a good place is at:

Problem with Lynksys WRT54-G

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 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.

I hope this shines some light on the problem.

Trying to turn a Linksys WRT54GS into a hub

  1. 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.
  2. Using a computer that is wired directly to one of the router's Ethernet ports, launch IE and type 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Then click on "Basic Setup" and then disable DHCP server. Save the settings then.
  5. Then your modem now will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router.
Hope this helps!

Wireless router connectivity WRT54GS

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 in the HTTP line of your browser.
