Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

No internet connection on web browser

I just bought a linksys wireless-g broadband router, model no.wrt54g. I have a ibm with windows 2000 professional. Well i followed the instructions and set everything up. All connections look good. On my computer it says i have my local area connection enabled, well when i try to go into my internet explorer which is avant browser it tells me error cannot connect and oops, or action canceled. I noticed that when i just hook up my computer to my dsl modem i do get an actual internet connection. So it must be the router. I plan on leaving my computer connected to the modem and router. The reason i bought the router is so i can have a wireless access point on my playstation3 and play online.

    My internet connection is fine on my computer (desk top) but I cannot get access when using my lap top, I have been trying to access this now for 2 weeks and am becoming quite fustrated.



    It says I am connected to Linksys on my laptop- the IP address is different to the IP adress on my desk top is this correct?



    Any help would be appreciated

    I have a linksys wireless-G router. I've had it for about 4 years and everything was fine until Adelphia's network switched to time warner. Now I can not get the router to work. It is wired correctly (I've checked several times) but I can't get online when it is hooked up to my desktop. My laptop(a mac) recognizes the wireless network but it won't allow me to access the Internet. The Internet light on the router flashes rapidly, and the WLAN light is lit but not flashing. Or at least not very often. Any suggestions?

The problem may be in the router itself, prehaps a faulty product. But I am more inclined to think it is the outdated copy of windows 2000 which you use. In my view 2000 was second to Windows ME in terms of faults, errors, recoginizing hardware, and what have you. I would take the router back to walmart and test with a new one, but if that does not help, then it may be time for you to upgrade. Have you tried getting the ps3 online even without the computer having an active connection? Give that a shot and if for some reason the ps3 grabs the signal then it is time to give in for sure man. And watch the router when you try to connect the ps3 to see if it even attempts to grab the wireless connection, the wireless light will start blinking rapidly if it does.

How can I get the router IP of my Linksys 2.4GHz broadband router?


The Linksys G router gives you both wired and wireless connections over a broadband Internet connect to create a local area network. The Linksys router is compatible with wireless G and B devices, through the 2.4-GHz wireless band. The wireless speed is at 54 megabytes per second and you can get 100 megabytes per second with a wired connection. You have to set up the wireless configuration on the Linksys before using it on your network.

Plug the router's power cable into an electrical outlet. Attach an Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back of the router. Connect the other end into your broadband modem. Connect your computer to the Linksys G using another Ethernet cable. This Ethernet cable can go into any of the wired router ports. Open your Internet browser. Type "192.168.1.1" in the address bar and hit "Enter." This is your router's IP address and the home of its Web configuration page. Click "Wireless." Click "Manual." Alter your SSID, also known as your network name. You can change this name to any value that you want. You can also change the wireless channel if you are in an area with many wireless connections that may interfere. Click "Save Changes." Click "Wireless Security." Choose an encryption method to encrypt your wireless transmissions. WPA or WPA2 are common security protocols you can use in wireless networks. Input a network key, also known as the network password. Click "Save Changes."

  1. Begin setup of your Linksys Wireless Router by first plugging in the power. Give it 10 seconds or so to initialize and then plug an ethernet cable into your wall jack and into the port on the back of the router marked Internet. Next get another ethernet cable and plug one end into your laptop and the other into one of the ports labeled 1-4 on the router. Your computer is now properly connected to the router to begin its setup and configuration.
  2. Next open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Enter admin for both the username and password.

There are lots of factor why you have that kind of problem when it comes to your router. Before following the steps in this, check if your computer has a stable Internet connection when connected directly to your broadband modem. If you do not have a stable Internet connection with your modem, kindly contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

May I know what is the model and version of your Linksys router?

If you run into Intermittent Wired Connections Using a Router:

Step1: Enabling MTU on the Router

- Access the router's web-based setup page.

- Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.

- Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.

- A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.

- NOTE: If the password of the router has been changed, type the router's new password in the Password field instead.

Step2: When the router's web-based setup page appears, look for MTU and set it to Manual. Enter the MTU value of your Internet connection in the Size field.

1468. The size DHCP or cable providers prefer.

1400. Maximum size for DSL.


Step3: Save settings.

===================================================================

If you run into Intermittent Wireless Connections Using a Router:


Check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks.


Regular wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:

> Wireless interference within the network.

> Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.

> Firmware is corrupted.
===================================================================
NOTE: If the procedure does not work, needs to update the router

When you set your router up to connect to your broadband you had to access the router through your web browser.
Do the same again and then check the Wireless section and follow the instructions on screen.
