Re: problem connecting router to lap top


May I suggest to remove the router first and connect your computer to your modem and try to determine if you can access the internet. Thereafter, boot run your PC normally (again without the router) and determine your IP configurations. You can do by > Start, Run, Type "cmd" without the quotes, in the next wiindow type "ipconfig /all" again without the quotes. Verify that indeed you can access the Internet by opening through your browser a few websites. Log down your IP configurations which should include IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS Server 1 & 2.

Pls post back with the details (from ipconfig /all) and will work from there on configuring your Linksys WRT54G.

Good luck and kind regards.

Re: problem connecting router to lap top

Your Linksys router might be secured, so your going to have to open a port for it to able to connect to the laptop. I am not an Expert on routers, but maybe Linksys will be able to help you. You can do the Linksys Live Chat, or you could can look around at the Linksys support site. If this doesnt work, please do not give me a bad rating. Instead, tell me in a comment and I will try to assist you further.

Hope this helps :)

Connection problem

The first thing to check is that both of your computers are assigned to the same workgroup name. Right click 'my computer' and select properties. Change the workgroup name so that they are identical on both machines. You will need to reboot if you change the name one one or both of the machines.
