    Have you downloaded the firmware from Linksys it should have a step by step readme to update firmware

    When you log on to windows you have no internet?
    Does it internet shut off at random?

Just double-click on the icon, and it should unzip with most OS's.  It's by WinZip, I believe, and after it's unzipped, extract it from the software, and then you'll be able to download it.  If WinZip is not preinstalled, just click the free trial.  You can upgrade later if you feel it is appropriate for your daily use.

Have you tried to reset router. It has to be done in order.
1. unplug router
2. unplug modem
3. shut down computer and restart after waiting 1 min
4. after restarting computer plug power back into modem and wait for all the lights to start blinking
5. after the modem is working plug power back to router and plug in the computer with ethernet cable and make sure you have internet,

If this does not work you will have to setup the router for wireless if it is att wireless you will have to call them to give you the password to set it up.

Cannot connect my laptop to linksys wrt54g router we lost our DSL connection today its back now but not with router hooked upcant find disk is there a free download? Does it need to be reconfigured??


Shouldn't need to be reconfigured. Power cycle (unplug and plug back in) both devices in the following order.

1 Unplug power to modem
2 Unplug power to router
3 Wait 20 Seconds
4 Plug power back into modem
5 Plug power back into router
6 Wait about 30 seconds for everything to re-initialize

That should take care of it, if not, let me know and I will provide you with some software for you router to try and set things back up, but I dont think you need to do that just yet.

Hope that helps and let me know...

Linksys WRT54G wireless router not compatible with Aztech modem?


Darvin, gotta love your ISP. Never fear......

if it isn't too much of a problem (knowing you have wireless setup done already), then do a factory reset on your router ** remember to copy the WEP Key if you have, or recall the PASS PHRASE so you won't have to reset all wireless devices ** Reset is located on back, you need a ball point pen to reach the reset switch.

Reset process: unplug, take ballpoint pen & insert into reset switch & plug unit back in. Sometimes tricky, but you should notice green light goes to yellow/orange upon resetting.

RESET or NOT - you want the Linksys set for ::

Connection Type - AUTOMATIC (for automatic discovery)
Router IP Address - 192.168.2.1

DCHP - ON, Addresses - 192.168.2.100 and allow 5-50 users
(for security, assign the number of DESKTOP + WIRELESS expected users +1, this way you don't get overrun without knowlege)

Take the cable from Aztech ETHERNET OUT to WAN on Linksys. (usually BLUE) (??) not 100% sure as I have the little silver pocket edition of the same Router. - power cycle (turn both DSL modem & Linksys off for 20 seconds. turn on DSL Modem, wait till it's about as ready as possible, turn on Linksys, should only take 20-30 seconds to power up & recognize.

VERIFY SETTINGS: access router - 192.168.2.1, goto STATUS. you should see IP Addressing, SubNet, DNS1 & DNS2 settings. If you do not, then you have no internet connection.

ALTERNATIVE,

Setup Linksys Router with COnnection Type: PPoE, you will need your ISP assigned ID & Password. Follow all other instructions properly.

If you still have problems, please contact me at 906-495-1707 or via Yahoo IM junodr@yahoo.com or through this website.

Linksys router


unplug your DSL modem. Wait 30 seconds and plug it back in.

Make sure the router is connected to a DSL modem. Lately I have seen DSL modems connected to offices that are really routers. If thats the case it may not be talking because the DSL is address the gateway with the same address as the router.

The best way to test this is to see what happens when you disconnect your linksys router and type in http://192.168.0.1
in internet explorer.

If the DSL modem screen appears, it's configured as a router.

Then you will have to take the linksys router and turn it into a switch with a wireless access point. I

Repeat step 5 for for your second PC.

If your second PC is wireless go into the wireless config utility and search for access points. Connect to your Access point and check for connectivity.

If you still have no internet. Press the reset button on the back of the router for 45 seconds while it is powered on. Repeat steps 5 and 6.

Be sure to lock down your wireless SSID so neighbors and people passing by are unable to connect to your access point and do bad things on your network.

USING LINKYS ROUTER/INTERNET NOT FOUND


Can you be a little more specific. What do you mean by "INTERNET PLUG IN"? Are you referring to the cable connecting your laptop to the router? The router to the modem? Or the modem to the internet (cable or DSL)?

What operating system?
