WRT54GX4 Wireless Router Setup Problems

Hi!

I have the following message come up when the router is doing its configuration,

The setup utility was unable to locate a wireless-g broadband router on your network. Please make sure your wireless-g broadband router is powered on and all cables are properly connected.

All the cables are hooked up correctly and the power is on.

Thanks,
Randy

    hi i have the same linksys wireless router and am having the same problems. status sais limited or no connectivity. when I tried to reset the router and reinstall config software from included cd, when i try to save the new settings it tells me, "the setup utility was unable to locate a wireless G Broadband router on your network..." a result to all of this is a msg that sais "the network did not assign a network address to the computer".

    i have tried to reconfig the router by using internet explorer and going to 192.168.1.1 to no avail. it cannot find the page even though i am connected to the router via eithernet cable.

    running network with 3 xp and 1 vista none work

    cable internet works fine when just using the modem to computer

    Hi,



    I am having the same exact problem. I connected the computer to the router with the ethernet cable that came with the router and the modem to the router with another standard ethernet cable. The connection says that it is connected but will not even connect to 192.168.1.1, just times out. I can even see the access point through my notebook and can connect to it (with an "excellent" signal) but cannot access the router settings or any other page. I don't understand why this is happening, especially since the Netgear router I had previously worked well. Any ideas?

    Same, no idea whats going on with my router. I though it was a firmware problem. So i upgraded the firmware to 1.0.2. I try again and same thing appears. But I realized about something, if you disconect the internet port and just leave the Lan port you can access to the setup configuration.

    No solution for now on, hope someone will get one.

    Bye

    Second Router from the store. Same problem. All cables connected correctly. Setup Wizard cannot find router, nor can you access router using default gateway address in IE.

Ad hoc router WRT54GX4


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
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

Have a dlink print server dpr1040 and dlink wireless router how do i print wireless


DPR-1040 information - http://www.dlink.com.au/products/?pid=777

All of this is from the manual located at link above under the resources tab.


Wireless Setup

WPS (Push Button Configuration)
WPS simplifies the process of connecting to a wireless network to a touch of a button. To use WPS you must have a WPS compatible wireless router,if you do not then you will need to manually configure the wireless connection in the web configurator (see Web Configurator below).

1. After following the hardware installation steps in section 3, ensure your wireless network is operating normally. When ready, press the WPS button located on the side of the DPR-1040. The blue LED should start flashing repeatedly.

2. Within 120 seconds, press the WPS button located on the wireless router you will be connecting to. This button may also be located in the router's web configuration pages labeled "Push Button Configuration (PBC)".

3. If successful, a wireless connection will be established between the two devices.
This connection is secure and uses automatically generated encryption keys; you do not need to remember them.

Note: If you experience problems connecting to a device, please try again. If you still experience problems, the device you're connecting to may be incompatible with the DPR-1040. Also, make sure you are connecting to a router or access point (AP).


Web Configurator

1. After following the hardware installation steps in section 3, ensure your wireless network is operating normally. When ready, type the IP address of the DPR-1040 into your browser, the default IP address is 192.168.0.10. If this does not work, use the PS-Link utility to find out the IP address.

2. Upon accessing the web configurator, click Setup > Wireless Setup.

3. On the next screen, enter the wireless network settings as provided by your network administrator.

4. Click Apply Settings, the DPR-1040 will restart and the wireless setup is complete.

Note: If your wireless connection does not work, check that you have entered the correct network settings into the Wireless Setup screen.

Error code 800710D8


You can install the CD on wired or wireless computer.However,if you are using any wireless computer to install the router using CD then,turn-off the third party wireless utility on the computer.

If you are still unable to configure the router then,you can configure the router manually.

If your Internet Service Provider is Cable follow this link to configure the router.

If your Internet Service Provider is DSL follow this link configure the router.

I can print wireless or with a usb connection yet yesterday i could, the only thing that has changed is i have a new router


Hi If you replaced your router your security settings and all other settings will be different. You will need to do uninstall the printer and install it back again or use the Wireless Printer Setup Utility. You can find that by going to start -> all Programs -> Lexmark -> Wireless printer setup Utility and follow the steps to configure your printer on the new router. I believe that you will have to connect the printer via USB to your computer to do this procedure.

I'm having problems not only with registration but also connecting the router.


Hi,
Kindly follow the below steps to setup your router, this will help
LinkSys Router Setup Physical Setup of a LinkSys Router Each model of LinkSys router will differ slightly, but the general design is similar across all models. Therefore, the setup is similar across all models.
  1. Attach the antennas to the router (if your LinkSys router support wireless)d
  2. Plug the Ethernet cable from your broadband Internet provider into the port labeled "Internet"
  3. Plug another Ethernet cable into one of the available ports
  4. Plug the other end of that same cable into an Ethernet port on your PC
LinkSys Router Configuration LinkSys routers now ship with a Setup Wizard which is intended to simplfy basic configuration tasks.
We do not recommend the LinkSys Setup Wizard for two reasons:
  1. The Setup Wizard is not significantly easier that the regular configuration menus
  2. If you use the Setup Wizard, you will end up learning two interfaces for your LikSys router instead of just one
Instead, we recommend simply starting your web browser and jumping into the configuration.
Once your web browser is open, go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password.
setup-linksys-router.jpg
Logging in to a LinkSys Router
The username is either blank or "admin" and the default password is "admin".
Once you are past the login screen, you are able to access (and change) a plethora of configuration options for your router.
Don't be worried by the enormous number and variety of options, your LinkSys router ships with default settings that enable it to work right out of the box in most environments.
From here the configuration options that you choose are largely up to your own personal preference.
If this is a wireless router, we recommend that you consider setting an SSID to identify the router as your own and configuring WEP to encrypt your wireless traffic.

Let me know if this will help

Regards

I can provide you more on Linksys router as i work on them :)

All the best

I am given a set up error while trying to configure netgear WGR614. Below is the message The router is setup with the static IP values read from the computer. However, there is no Internet connection with...


You need to contact your Internet Service Provider to obtain the setup configuration for the cable or DSL modem. A LAN cable is then connected from the modem to the Internet LAN port on the wireless router.
Normally you do not set a static IP address on the router, and the wireless card should be set to obtain an IP address automatically.
If you still have problems, give me details of what configuration steps you have carried out on the router and the wireless card together with the error messages.

Linksys Router Installation Model Number WRT54GX4 with SRX


Booba,
With your question about the internet type you are right to set it to DHCP. And For the password you are also right. Now for the ssid that will be the name that your router will be broadcasting. If you can get your computer online through port no.1 on the router that only means that the router is already configured properly for internet connection. Now since the wireless is not working its possible that its not connected yet to the wireless network that you have set up where you were running the setup cd. Do you know how to view the available networks on your wireless computer? If you kindly provide me with the operating system of your computer that will go wireless on your network and also the model no. or the brand of the wireless adapter on it.
