Question about Linksys WRT300N Wireless Router

1 Answer

Not Connecting On Wireless

We have a WRT300N but only one computer will connect throught it. The computer that does work is wired straight to the router but the other computer is using a wireless-N connection. It sees the router but it can never acquire an IP address. Any ideas?

    Same issue. Called Linksys and they made me reset out of N mode to G only, as it seems to have problems with the auto setting.



    Not happpy as it reduced range, but it connects now. They claim non n laptops can get a mixed signal and go in and out of connection

Make sure your modem is connected to the INTERNET PORT of the WRT300N. wired pc must have an ip address of 192.168.1.x so we can say that the internet is really coming from the wrt300n

No internet signal from router


To isolate the concern, it would be better to test the non working computer to the modem. If it works, that means there is a problem with the router and if it isn't then it is a problem with the pc..

If the computer works fine on the modem, you can try the following to check if the router works fine:

1. The modem should be connected to the router's WAN/Internet port.
2. The computers should be hard wired to the router's numbered port
3. On the router's setup page, go to the Status tab and check if the Internet IP address and the DNS are populated. If not, that means the router is not functioning correctly.
4. Go to the wireless tab and make sure that the SSID is customized. Make sure that the wireless computer is connecting to the said SSID.

If those had been checked and it still does not work, you can try updating the firmware of the router, reset and reconfigure it.

However, if the computer does not work on the modem. You may need to have it checked.

Wireless connection of netgear wireless router for compaq laptop


When you look on the box that the router came in, you have to look to see what Operating Systems it is compatible with. In many cases, routers will not be compatible with vista. I have a Linksys WRT300N, and it works great with Vista.Hope this helps.

Local access only


hmmm... with those settings, the Vista machine SHOULD be working...

when you open internet explorer on the vista machine, can you go to tools, internet options, and then the connections tab?

along the bottom there should be an option for lan settings. click on that, and then make certain that 'automatically detect settings' is checked, and that everything else is blank.

then restart internet explorer.

what sort of error message do you get now, if you try to go to, say, www.cnn.com?
