Power off and power back on your Linksys router first. if that fails, try connecting to one of the Ethernet ports with a cable and see if the router is working in wired mode. Then download and install netstumbler software from http://www.netstumbler.com/ . This will tell you a lot of things, provided your wireless adaptors on the PC are ok.

If the router is still sending out a satisfactory wireless signal, this will show up in NetStumber, and you'll also be able to see whether there are any other (potentially conflicting) routers operating from Neighbors on the same channel as you. If you find a neighboring device on the same channel (ususally 1, 6 or 11), change the channel on your router to which ever one of these is free. Its also possible that the router config might have got itself corrupted; in which case a factory reset option could sort this out (you'd need to re-program the ISP settings, so make sure you have these first!).

Its unlikely that the MS upgrade has stopped the wireless working, but if all else fails and to eliminate all possibilities you could revert using "system restore" from the most recent recovery point.

I need to reset the password on my linksys Wireless GBroadband router WRT 54G without ruining my wireless set up in my house!


Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer directly to the router.
Access the web-server "inside" the router.
Login to the router, with the current ID/password.
View the wireless settings:
* SSID
* encryption-level ('WPA' or better, please)
* network password

and change it, if you need to.

My wrt 54g ver. 7 cannot connect to siemens modem what is the configuration for this


Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Need the driver for Linksys WRT300N V1 ... can't find the CD


Hi,

The LINKSYS WRT300N is a standalone device, there are no software/driver needed on your PC for the router to work. However, there is an easy Setup Wizard that is in the CD that normally comes with the unit.

Unfortunately, Linksys did not make the specific Setup Wizard (Version 1.3) for the WRT300N available online. However, if you care to try the Setup Wizard for a WRT54GC, it may downloaded from the LINKSYS ftp site here. I used to have a WRT54G and I did make use of the Setup Wizard for that model. I upgraded to WRT300N. The setup wizard for the old WRT54G worked likewise on the new WRT300N.

Alternately, the WRT300N can still be configured without the CD or the Setup Wizard by logging into the Configuration Page (192.168.1.1). Remember to use LAN interface when setting the router (as shown in the connection diagram) and set your PC to an IP Address of 192.168.1.2, Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0; Follow on screen instructions and enter settings/configurations manually.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information. Additionally, if you still prefer to have a copy of the original WRT300N Setup Wizard, pls include your email address that I may send it to you as an attachment.

Good luck and kind regards.
