Linksys Wireless-G 2.4Ghz Broadband Router Problem

I have a Linksys Wireless-G 2.4Ghz Broadband Router. The Problem is that I cant access the internet via the wireless router. I can get a signal between my laptop and the router i.e the laptop finds the wireless network, but it will not allow me to gain access to the internet. The router is connected to my cable modem via an ethernet connection, though if I connect the laptop directly to the modem I do this via USB. Does anyone know if this is a common problem or if it may be a problem that I will have to contact my ISP about?? Any tips? I would be very grateful!!! I was on internet when Net connection dropped. Router Power Light goes out and all connection with the Local net work and internet stops. I reset the router and the router comes back on line. I can work with the local network but, not the internet. When, the power light goes out again. I restart the router over again. I found out that if I take the internet modem away from the router, that the local net will operate with no problem. I have a static IP from the web provider. When I am away from home I get to my router with the IP address and /1520 ETC, to get though to the computer and cams

Also, check with your ISP whether you need to register the MAC address of your router to get access to the internet thru the router. Maybe that your llaptop was used to set up your account and therefore the account only recognises the MAC address of the laptop. The router is a stranger to your account and might need to get included by your ISP.

Dear Assistants I have a router linksys compact wirless - g broadband router. model number WRT 54GC ver. 2 and i have a problem with it I cant find anywhere the WAN MAC Adress of the Linksys What to do???...


The Linksys has a device MAC address and the router issues IP addresses to the computers that are connected to it.
There is no WAN MAC address. Your ISP issues to your cable or DSL modem an unique IP address and you connect this modem into the WAN port on the Linksys router.
You enter the routers configuration address -
http://192.168.1.1
and login and configure the router.

WIFI not working with Linksys wireless-g broadband router/Comcast


Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.

Networking question


Ok, you have several options. Go to a website such as bestbuy.com. Type in linksys and look of wireless access points, wireless usb adapters or a wireless desktop adapter. I would go with the third one.

Cant connect to internet from laptop


The network key is stored in the router, and your manual will tell you how to access it.
If you don't have access to the router's web page, you'll need to reset the router and start over.
