Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

Desktop wireless internet problems

If this question is already answered somewhere else, I'm sorry. Please point me to that post.

We have a desktop with windows XP that is located downstairs from our modem and Linksys WRT100 Ranger Plus wireless router. On the desktop we have a Linksys compact wireless-G USB adapter.
Although the Network connection status reads that the signal strength is excellent, I am not able to get onto the internet from my desktop.

My laptop connects to the wireless internet with no problem and I have already checked to see that the two computers are not sharing an IP address. The default gateway, and DNS servers all seem to have the right numbers.

In the past, even when we were able to get on the internet, the connection was often hit or miss and always slow.

I have no idea what to do or what my problem might be.
I will do a dance if someone can help me.
Thanks.

    Thank you for the suggestion but unfortunately we have tried that . . . more than once, to no avail.

    Generally, we will somehow get the computer to work (sometimes by re-loading all the linksys software) but by the next day there will be no access. We think there must be some setting on the desktop which is stopping us from having access.

    Any clues to if this might be the case?

    We have the Linksys G-Broadband Router she that our daughter can get an internet connection in her room from the computer in our room. The signal is strong, but she still can't get on the internet. We unpluged everything and waited the suggested time and then pluged it back in, but its still not working. She used it for several months and now there's she can log onto the internet.

    I basically have the same problem although after 2 years of the router working, I'm running into "no internet access" problems. I push the reset button on the back of the router and this seems to work for a short period of time. I have unplugged everything, plugged it all back in and this seems to work a short period of time but then I get kicked off again.



    Is my router causing the problem and should it be replaced?

    thank you,

Well, this seems to be an issue specific to the desktop computer. Please disable the firewall on the concerned computer and then check if that resolves the issue.

Wireless printing


Hi rich10is

WIRELESS PRINTING WITH WIRED EPSON ACULASER CX11NF PRINTER


Your printer is not a wireless printer but it is a network printer so it should be straightforward for you to create a wireless printer setup.


If your computer is a laptop, its wireless function would work seamlessly in a wireless printer environment. If your computer is a Desktop computer, all that would have been required would be (if you don't already have one) an inexpensive Wireless USB Adapter to plug into the back of the Desktop to transform your setup into a fully Wireless Network. You should connect your printer to your wireless router/modem with an Ethernet/CAT5E/RJ45 Cable. Then enter Network Places on your computer and add the printer to your wireless network using 'add a device'.

I want to set up wireless internet on my laptop


Set it up with an IP address in the same subnet as your LAN, with no DHCP, and hook a switchport into your router (NOT the WAN ports---it gets connected to NOTHING). You now have a wireless access point with an IP address for management (SVI).

Wireless Network working on laptop, lost internet on desktop.


If you disconnect the desktop from the modem, were you able to get an Internet connection in your laptop?
In order to get Internet connectivity on your desktop at the same time with the laptop, then the desktop needs to be connected to the router. It should be connected to one of the Ethernet ports at the back of the router. Since, your desktop doesn't have an Ethernet port, then you need to connect a USB to Ethernet adapter to your desktop. Then from that adapter, you will connect to it an Ethernet cable going to the router.

You may check the following models:
Linksys USB200M
Linksys USB100TX
Belkin Gigabit USB 2.0 Network Adapter(F5D5055)
D-Link DUB-E100

There are other brands that offer USB to Ethernet adapters that you can check.

Hope this helps!

Got wireless signal but no internet connection


You can try to power cycle your entire network (refresh).
This often happens when you have a large network.
  1. power down ALL Computers and disconnect the desktop from the D-Link Switch.
  2. turn off all SLAVE AP's first.
  3. Turn off the Master AP and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  4. Turn off the D-Link Switch and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  5. Now, turn off your modem.
Leave them for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your urgency.
Turn on and connect all devices in the EXACT order.
  1. Turn on the modem. wait 2 minutes.
  2. Turn on the D-Link Switch and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the MODEM.
  3. Turn on the Master AP and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the D-Link Switch.
  4. Turn ONE of the Slave AP's. Turn on your Laptop. try to connect to the Internet. If successful, Disconnect from the network on the computer and proceed to turn on the rest of the Slave AP's, Laptops, and Desktop. If its NOT successful, power on the Desktop and try to connect to the internet.
  • If the desktop connects to the Internet, Check your D-Link's homepage "192.168.1.1" (default) for any wrong settings. If it does not connect, check your DSL Modem's settings.
If the above does not work, post what you did the day before this happened. Probably something small might have messed with the network.

Hello Drewl,
You mention that you have wireless already existing in your home - it would be easiest to purchase a Wireless-G USB adapter for the desktop. I prefer the LinkSys Wireless-G Portable USB Model WUSB54GP, but there are others to choose from.

My Toshiba SP6000 cannot enable the wireless network connection when the wireless pc-card is inserted. I intend to network my laptop to my computer for broaband purposes. Please help


Hi Alirahmani26,

From what I've gathered here, you're trying to use a wireless card on your laptop to connect to the Internet through your desktop computer. Are you using a wireless router somewhere in there? Or are you wanting to connect to the Internet FROM your laptop THROUGH your desktop computer? If the latter, are you planning to connect the laptop with a Cat-5 cable or with the wireless connection?
