Hi,

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.

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 :)

I have a sony lap top PCG-5B16. Service


This is my fovorite thing about linksys routers, they hate everything. Unfortunately I still haven't figured out a technical way to fix this problem, but usually pressing the reset button on the modem and the router then unplugging them for 3 minutes and plugging them back in works. If thta doesn't work try going into the status page of the router and tell us what that says.

Cant connect to the internet on my lap top


first thing is to identify the wireless settings of the router,you need to identify the wireless name (SSID), channel and the encryption you are getting from the airlink router. Next is to make sure that the wireless computer has enabled wireless signal/ or the wireless is on.

after that, you may connecting wirelessly to the computer, right click wireless connection and go to view available wireless networks, try to connect -input the encryption key from you wireless router or password and hit connect.

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.

Trying to connect desk top computer and lap top computer


There is only two ways to possibly connect both the desktop and the laptop in the network. That is to purchase a router so you can connect them both or a route with a wireless and then the laptop (Which most new ones have a wireless capability installed) can connect wireless from anywhere in the home. If you already have a Cable or DSL Modem it may have a wireless capability. Otherwise you would have to get a wireless modem. Hope this helps. Bud
