  • So you need to reset it's settings to factory defaults.
    For that press RESET button for 10 seconds then all settings goes to defaults.
    RESET button is in back side of router.
    Then you can access it with above user name and password.
    Let me know if you need further assistance.

My laptop and my iphone indicate that my wireless-g broadband router is putting out a wireless signal; but neither accessory works on the network, even though the bars are entirely full on the devices.


The bars on your laptop or iPhone means that you are connected to the router! Not necessarily to internet. Your internet depends on ISP Internet service provider and modem which connected to your router. To check if you have active internet connection connect your laptop directly to modem provided by your ISP with ethernet cable and try to open a internet browser IE or Safari or Chrome or Firefox and open a webpage! If you are able to connect internet by this mean you have internet connection active. Now disconnect your lap top from modem and connect modem to your Linksys router using WAN port of LINKSYS! Its good to power off and power on (power cycle) once on modem and router to make it work!
good luck!

I have a PC running windows 7 connected to the internet via Verizon dhl but whenever I try to connect a wrt54g router I lose the internet connection even though the modem appears to be working with all...


I had the same Linksys router, and the same issue as well. I continually reset it. Resetting the router would provide better connectivity to my laptop, but it would fail all to soon. I wound up switching routers, and the issue was resolved. I would recommend that you rest the router and see if that helps. If not, then I would recommend a new router.

Internet conection via linksys gateway through netgear router


Not totally for sure but i am myself running linksys. if its a new pc you must first configure your settings in order to hook up it up. on ur pc you should have networks first try running a land line to it and see if you can connect if you have multiple routers its very easy to make a mistake with the wiring.

You have to check if your computer can connect to the modem with an Ethernet cable. This will tell you if the ethernet port on the modem is working. if that does not work call your cable provider.

Next thing after you get the instructions above done.

Press the reset button on the back of the router> press it in for 30 seconds then let go and pull out the power. Connect the router up the way it should be before you reset by the way. check if you have internet if you do not follow hte directions at teh link below.

Connectivity problem


it is still trying to connect via your modem, go to control panel>network connection, and you will see your modem dialup connection, right click and select dissable if required.

next open up internet explorer, go to tools>internet options, then click on connections tab, then half way down select 'never dial a connection'.

Click apply>ok, then close internet explorer, open it up again and wait a few seconds and it will connect via your router(asuming that it is correctly set up).

If no page appears then click refresh a few times.

Cannot get through internet via ethernet, I Appreciate your help.


You didn't state what kind of net connection you are using, dial-up, cable, sattelite.
If, for instance, you have cable, is the modem connected directly to one computer, or several, via router and ifso on the router is it "wireless" or cable connected?

If you are using anything OTHER THAN dial-up, I recommend, that you unplug the router AND modem, look for "resets" on both, sometimes the reset will look like a small resessed pin that must be pushed on with a pen or toothpick.(hold down for 30 seconds) Leave them unplugged...I would advise 5 minutes, then reconnect cables and power supplys and try again.

If none of this works and you have had electrical storms,(and sometimes wind damages cable if pole mounted) you may have surge-damaged routers/ and or modems. I usually have to reset mine after every lighting storm, and had to replace a damaged router twice. Sadly on another note, I would not recommend vista to anyone, I would however recommend XP media center for computers that have specs for it.
Hope this will help.
