Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
Can you help us connect router to laptop
I'll assume you're using Windows XP with DHCP enabled and you're working with a new router that has not previously been configured. Please let me know if my assumptions are incorrect.
- If you have installed Linksys software on your computer...uninstall it before using the rest of this procedure.
- Begin by shutting off the computer and the router
- Connect a Cat 5 ethernet cable from the network connection on your computer to one of the numbered ports on the router. Port 1 would be a good choice.
- Turn on the router and wait about 1 minute
- Turn on the computer and wait about 2 minutes after it boots up
- Click on Start>Run>...type "cmd" in the text box...>Ok
- The black command prompt window should appear
- Type "ipconfig" at the prompt and press enter...this will list your computer's IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway
- If the ip address begins with 192.168.... things are looking good! If the address is blank or begins with 169, your computer is not talking to the router through the cable.
- Assuming "things are looking good" in the previous step, make a note of the default gateway address. It will typically be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.100....or something like that. This is the address of your router.
- Start Internet Explorer and type the router address into the address bar....for example, if the default gateway was 192.168.1.1, then type "http://192.168.1.1" into the address bar of your browser.
- The router setup screen should appear...beginning with a login window. The username is usually "admin" and password "admin". If that doesn't work try leaving the password blank on the next attempt.
- Once you see the router setup screen you can proceed with configuring the router
to meet your needs. Use the instructions that came with your router (on disc?) as a
-I hope this is helpful....let me know if I can be of further assistance.
