Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

Linksys wireless problem

We have linksys wireless internet for a few years now, and use a wireless-g 24 GHz, 54 Mbps, Broadband Router.  Recently we have been having lots of problems getting the internet to work.  It has worked fine in the past.  The wireless doesn't work on both computers we have in the house.  On my computer it says that "you have successfully connected to the access point but the internet could not be found" or something like that, even when the wireless isn't actually connected to the modem (we started hooking up the other computer directly to the modem so at least some of us can get online) It works fine when the computer is hooked up directly to the modem. on the other computer when the wireless is hooked up it says that the wireless is working fine, but the internet never shows up.  I've tried unplugging it and the modem and waiting 30 seconds, but nothing changes when I turn them back on.  we disabled our security codes so that can't be the problem either.

We are having the same problem. When we unplug the router and just plug directly into the modem the internet works again. It's sad because a friend just got the wireless part of the router working again (before we were having to plug into it with ethernet cables) and now the router isn't working either with a direct or wireless connection. I'm hoping there is some way to fix this apart from buying a new router (which I don't think my housemate will spring for).

How can I get the router IP of my Linksys 2.4GHz broadband router?


The Linksys G router gives you both wired and wireless connections over a broadband Internet connect to create a local area network. The Linksys router is compatible with wireless G and B devices, through the 2.4-GHz wireless band. The wireless speed is at 54 megabytes per second and you can get 100 megabytes per second with a wired connection. You have to set up the wireless configuration on the Linksys before using it on your network.

Plug the router's power cable into an electrical outlet. Attach an Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back of the router. Connect the other end into your broadband modem. Connect your computer to the Linksys G using another Ethernet cable. This Ethernet cable can go into any of the wired router ports. Open your Internet browser. Type "192.168.1.1" in the address bar and hit "Enter." This is your router's IP address and the home of its Web configuration page. Click "Wireless." Click "Manual." Alter your SSID, also known as your network name. You can change this name to any value that you want. You can also change the wireless channel if you are in an area with many wireless connections that may interfere. Click "Save Changes." Click "Wireless Security." Choose an encryption method to encrypt your wireless transmissions. WPA or WPA2 are common security protocols you can use in wireless networks. Input a network key, also known as the network password. Click "Save Changes."

Can only get a 10 meg when connected via cable to srx 200


The speed of your wireless adapter maybe up to 54 Mpbs only, check the wireless adapter that you have if it is 802.11 G its set to 54 Mbps only however if your using 802.11 N the speed of the adapter is around 300 mbps of connection.

There's a settings on the router that you can lock WAN port speed to around 10/100/1000

Note: To have a 300 Mbps of connection you should set the wireless settings of the router to WPA2 and AES with bandwidth of auto 20/40
