Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hello, I have a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router, My Problem is that when I got it I hooked it up and it worked fine. My daughter shut down the computer and now it wont work at all. At first, It started letting me have wireless internet on my laptop, but when I did I didnt have Net on my desktop. and visa versa, But now I can get it to work at all, I have to hook up my DSL straight to my desktop if I want on the net. I went through the trobleshoots it gave me and the only thing I see wrong was that th eWireless-G light wasnt lit.. Other then that.. I dont know. Is there something else I could do to get it working so I can have the net to my laptop back? Thanks

On the left front of the WRT54G wireless router, which is what I assume you have there is a light that says Cisco. It is actually a Universal Plug and Play button. Plug in the router to the DSL, the DSL will go in the port that is by itself, the others are numbered. The diagram that came with your router shows you where to put the DSL interface.

Now plug your PC into one of the other ports, and turn the laptop on with the wireless turned on too. Then press this button. It will turn from steady yellow to flashing white for a bit. It will use universal plug and play to set itself up.

Hope this helps. Also, if you want to reset the router to the factory state, press the button on the back of the router for 5 seconds and unplug it. Then keep holding it and plug it back in.

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.
