My Dad has the Hawking HWR54G router and previously we've had no problems with it. I came home for a visit and found that not only can I no longer access wireless Internet, I cannot access the Internet through any of the ethernet cords that are plugged into the router.
I've checked all the connections and everything is set up like it is supposed to be. I pulled the primary ethernet cord from the router and plugged it directly into my computer from the modem and I have Internet no problem.
All lights on the router are green except the Power and WLAN ones. Is this thing fried or is there a way to fix this?

Re: Router Not Working
OK, check which address ya on... see there are a couple of sets... there is 192.168.0.*, and 10.1.1.* ... or the like sometimes the settings get screwed up..I suggest that ya reset it up all again using the Wizard... then go to each client and run Internet connection manager to establish the connection... Think of the router as a stand alone little PC... that "hands out" the address, to the clients... work methodically thru it & hopefully ya be all good to go?

If you have changed the password for your router from the default password, you will need to reset your router in order to gain access to resetup the router.
The reset switch for this particular model of router is located on the back of the router between the antenna and the LAN jack.
A setup guide for your router can be found here:
Best of luck to you.
First the wireless card driver needs to be installed in the laptop.
The router's SSID, passphrase (ie encryption) is configured in the router's wireless configuration. This information is needed to configure the wireless card in the laptop so it can connect to the wireless router. Please click on this link for my instructions on how to secure your wireless network, configure the wireless router and the wireless card in the laptop ;- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
At the back of your device next to the WAN Port (internet port) you will find a small hole with a button inside it, turn your device off then press and hold the small button in while switching on your device, keep pressing down on the button for about 5 seconds, that will reset your router to default settings.
From user manual: "When the Login pop-up for the Router appears, please enter “admin” for the username to access the configuration screen. (Note: By default, there is no password. If you cannot get in, please reset the router by pressing the button next to the antenna on the back of the router and try logging in again.)" Follow instruction and let me know if you need a copy of user manual.
If you press the reset button you only make a reboot. To reset all the value to the factory setting you have to: - Power off the device - Hold the reset button pressed - While you press the reset button put the power back on
Now your gateway address is again 192.168.1.254, login is admin and password is not present (leave it blank).
Yes there is an easier way! Just setup the router as you would any normal setup. Follow the directions to set it up for the first time. What you want to do is have the put in all of your information that you need for it to communicate with your Modem. This will automatically place the router onto your network. Now the part that I believe you want is for this to be secure! Well setup either a WEP or WPA these are both encryption Protocols that will denie access to anyone other than you or someone you allow to access your network wirelessly.
You do not really have to go through all of the trouble of setting up specifics. As long as the two devices communicate the router and the modem will do the rest. I do this everyday in my daily work day! Anymore quesitons please feel free to ask!
The Hawking Wireless-G HWR54G is a standalone device, there is no software needed on your PC for the router to work. However there is an easy Setup Wizard. If you are referring to this, perhaps you can contact their tech-support hereor call 888-202-3344 or emailthem.
Should you prefer to wing it, the HawKing site has provided online guides. Open your browser and go to the Configuration Page (192.168.1.254). Follow on screen instructions. On another PC with Internet connection, open a browser. Below are
links to pages you might need: Connection Diagram; Frequently asked Questions; Should you
need a manual; In case you
need a firmware
Remember to use LAN interface when setting the router (as shown in the connection diagram) and set your PC to an IP Address of 192.168.1.240, Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Ok, have everthing as normal IE: devices useable. Then....
Go to Add/Remove Programs & remove any related software.. if optioned, choose "Complete uninstall"
Ok, then go to "Device Manager" right click the relevent "Adapter" and UNINSTALL DRIVER.
When asked if ya want to remove "Completely" answer "Yes"...
This should be OK at this point.
