Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
He was able to get on the internet now he cannot
I have a linksys that connects my internet to my computer
I went into it I do not have a host or domin name listed could that be the problem not sure why he had it now its gone
when we tried to set it up says its there but we cannot find it not sure what to try or do
Could be alot of things.
The host name and domain are mainly for organizational purposes, like tags.
If you're using wireless a recognizable CCID is good to have.
If your son is using wireless, he will need to have the security Key, that's set on the Router, in order to go through it. He may be able to connect to the router, but won't be able to go through it to the Internet without the key.
Also, if your son is using a Windows 98 or prior, he will have to use the correct Login credentials. These operating systems don't tell you when you're not using the correct credentials, till you try to do something on the network. More recent Operating systems correct this.
The first step is onto the network, so see if you can see his computer on the network as a "Workgroup Computer".
The second step is through the routers security settings.
Hope something here helps.
