Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router

2 Answers

Mu WRT150N Router appears to have stopped working. If I hook the modem direct to the laptop it works. If I put the router inbetween with the same direct connection, no internet. I have tried several cables between the router and modem, but no change. Any suggestions??

When connecting the devices make sure that you turn on the device in this manner: modem (wait for the lights to be solid) then router, then the computer.

Check if you can get online, if not then follow the steps below:

1. Open a web browser and type this in the address bar: 192.168.1.1

2. Then you will be in the setup page of the router. You need to know what is your connection type obtained from your ISP.

If DHCP, internet connection type should be: Automatic Configuration - DHCP should be selected.

If PPPoE, select PPPoE and type the username and password provided by your ISP.

3. Then save the changes.

Once that the internet connection is working from the PC hardwired connected to the router, then check the wireless settings under the wireless tab. Take note of the SSID, wide channel, and the wireless security and preshared key.

Put those settings on the wireless adapter of the laptop and you should be able to get online.

I hope this works! Good luck!

Are any of the LED lights switched on in the router when it is powered up?
If not check the power adapter plug with a multi-meter, the output voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter.
If the voltage is zero or very low then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

My linksys WRT150N router won't recieve internet signal from my dsl modem. The router sends out a signal to my lap top, but no internet connection can be made.


Try connecting your laptop directly to the dsl modem to make sure that it is working correctly.
If the dsl modem is working correctly then:
1. Turn off the power on the router and dsl modem.
2. After about 2 minutes, turn on the dsl modem.
3. Wait another 2 minutes, then turn on the router.

Occasionally you need to do this to get them back in synch. If this doesn't work you may need to use the software utility to reconfigure the router.

Linksys WRT150N router disappearing from PC


If you aren't able to access the router even using the hard wired connection, there seems to be a problem. Resetting won't work. You must hard reset the router. And here are the steps.

1. Push the reset button and hold it for a minute
2. While you are holding the reset button pull out the power cable every 10 second and put it back in right away. So in a minute you would be doing it 4-5 times

Try this a couple of times and if this still doesn't work, its time for getting your router replaced from linksys.

What VoIP provider are you using?

Try connecting router directly to the modem and the laptop to the router and see if your laptop can get out onto the internet. If you cannot, then your router might not be handing out IPs to the devices on the internal network. You can enable the DHCP server on the router using the administrative web interface at http://192.168.1.1.

If you can get out onto the internet with your laptop behind your router then look at defining a DHCP reservation on your router for your VoIP phone and then forwarding the following to your phone:
5061 UDP
5060 UDP
10000-20000 UDP

These are common ports amonst the VoIP providers.

Hope this works, if not we'll give it another shot.
