Thank you:
I was just trying to make it more difficult than it was. I had ethernet cables in the bag with the router which threw me a curve. It had been two years since I was able to use it away from home. Here at home I have a fios hookup.

Jehayman,

I am not if you are referring to the Ethernet connection when you said connections to the telephone line. Your WRT54G does not have a telephone port, it has an Ethernet port. If you would like to know how to connect this router to your network here is how you can do it.

If you look on the back of your router, there will be 5 Ethernet ports there (looks like a phone port but it's bigger). They are labeled 1,2,3,4, and WAN or Internet.

The ports labeled 1-4 are for your computer/s that will connect to the router through wired connection using an Ethernet cable. The port all by itself labeled WAN or Internet is where the modem should go to. If you dont have a modem from your ISP and just have a line that is plugged in straight to the computer, that line can be plugged in to that port.

Hi
This is Neo . Check the Filters in the phone line if you have installed the filter . if there is no filters before the telephone , install a filter . Whether the phone line are connected properly and check the wall point where the connection from the DSL and telephones . Check the cords and try changing the RJ11 cords . RJ cors the phone thin cords .
NOTE : FILTERS SHOULD BE INSTALLED FOR TELEPHONES BUT NOT FOR 2 WIRE .

Network has suddenly dissapeered


This is just a problem with the wireless settings of the router, you can try first to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 20 seconds while power is ON and then after that you should be able to find the default wireless name of the router which is linksys, after you reset the router just need to reconfigure it back...

Cant connect 2 laptops through linsky wrt54g is this possible


are you connecting the laptop hard wired or wirelessly?

for wired connection, just plug the ethernet cable from the router to the laptop and it should work fine.

for the wireless connection, check on the wireless network connection. for xp, click on start> control panel> network connections> right click wireless network connection> then click on view available wireless network> then select your network.. for secure wireless connection, type the security key then click connect. :-)

Help me please


I think Not.
There are ADSL wireless routers however.
I guess your purpose is to make your ADSL modem available wirelessly, you can connect the
modem via lan line to the wireless and use that as a router.

Iam trying to connect my laptop to the innet. i have wrt54g router.


Hi jjroyc

Let's see if we can get your laptop connected to the Internet.

First, I have some questions and a few instructions for you.

(01) Is this a new (to you) router?

(02) Do you already have one or more computers connecting successfully to the Internet using this router?

(03) If yes, are any of them connecting wirelessly?

(04) Have you recently (at another location for example) successfully connected this laptop to the Internet? If so, did you connect it "wired" or "wirelessly".

(05) Are you trying to connect your laptop to your router "wirelessly" or "wired"?

(06) If you are trying to connect the laptop wirelessly, turn off your laptop's wireless radio and connect the laptop to the router "wired" instead (using an "Ethernet Patch Cable"). Once we've established that the laptop is capable of connecting to the Internet via the simpler "wired" connection, then we'll move on to the more complex wireless connection.

(07) Please, go HERE to download the manual for your particular router. You will need to determine the version number of the WRT54G model 1st. There are instructions there that will guide you through this.

Compatibility between linksys WRT54G Router and Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Driver


from what you say, it sounds as if you have your wired and wireless card connected at the same time. This will confuse the router as it is trying to give two different ip addresses to the one pc, which it cannot do. If you are using the wireless adapter, make sure you dissable the wired adapter as the router will continually look for the wired ip address while allocating your wireless adapter causing instability. Next ensure you have a good clear signal from router to notebook as this can obviously cause problems. Lastly ensure that the wireless cards TCP/IP properties are set to obtain ip address automatically, especially if your router is DHCP enabled to allocate ip addresses automatically.
