Check in the router settings, in your internet browser from your deskyop, type 192.168.1.1 and enter the router config screen by using a blank username, and admin for a password. Look through the settings and make sure it is set to wireless signal on. Also, look to make sure your laptop isn't made specifically for Wireless N technology. Some wireless adapters aren't backwards compatable.

Can not connect but has strong signal


Try to check your accesspoint configration again. Is your wireless link Secured? if it is, reenter your network key and try to connect again. check your IP address to sure it is correct. Are you using authomatic addressing or is it manual,
go to your command prompt and type "ipcongif -all" on the computers that are wired and connected to the switch, view their settings and compare it with what you have on your laptop.

My son is a soldier stationed on a base in Iraq. He has a Ts2 satellite network. He is having problems getting there routers to connect to the primary switches. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


make sure the routers are set to router operating mode and not gateway (in advanced routing settings if linksys brand) and they are set as uplinks to each other and not in the WAN port. Make sure all the DHCP servers are set to OFF and just have the one hosting the internet enabled. This way anyone who connects to any router will be pointed to the correct DHCP server (the one hosting your internet connection)

...being in military i would assume they have unix based routers or at least standard routers with flashed unix firmware ...im using DD-WRT flashed linksys WRT54G routers and boost the transmit power to 210mW. Plus being military they should really have a yagi based antenna with at least 24DBi.
..any more questions email jon@thamind.net

My dell laptop will not connect to linksys 54g ,why


Let me try to solve this. Please try to see if the wireless antenna switch (physical switch) is turned on. For Vista, please click on Start-Connect to- then please select your network. If it says you are connected to the network, please click on "Open Network and Sharing Center to see if there is a red x mark between "network" and "internet". If there is none, please launch your browser (Internet Explorer) If there is, please click on that red x and see what is the message after. If it could not be identified, please contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP). If there is no problem with your ISP, please go to Start-Control Panel-Network and Internet-Internet Options-General Tab-Delete (Under Browsing History)-Delete All. After these, please try to launch your IE. You can also download the latest driver for your wireless network adapter using a different computer if the first offered solutions did not work. Please let me know if any of these works. Thank you.

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.

What are the step for setting up you computers to a network using a Linksys router. I have a 2 PC's and a laptop that I would linke to net work together. My first computer is connect to the Wireless-B...


Hi Ed, if your using windows you can open network connections & run network setup wizard. Follow the instruction for a home network for the wireless PC's & notebooks. Once the network is setup for all PC's than you can install the printer cd software in the PC's that you want to access the printer. Each PC & notebook will have access to the printer through the network.
The PC that that is connected to the printer needs to be shared.
Open printers and Faxes. Right click once on the printer & left click sharing. Agai follow the instructions.
Lastly,I strongly suggest you setup security for your wireless. If you do not anyone close can tap into your network connection. Follow linksys instruction to setup security. If you run into a problem you can call linksys for free advise from a pro. Their number is listed in the manual.
