You can try the steps below and see if it will fix your problem.

1. Log in to your router interface by opening a browser. On the address bar type in http://192.168.1.1. ( this is usually the default address of linksys router)
2. Once you press enter, it will prompt you for a username and password.
Dont type anything on username and enter on the password box, the word admin.
3. Once your inside the router page, Click on wireless tab.
under wireless tab, change the wireless channel to 1, 6, or 11. If the ssid is still linksys, change it to something different. After doing these steps, press save settings. TO save the changes you made.

Linksys WRT54G not seeing internet connection


spacer335,

Who is your Internet service provider, and do you have cable or DSL? You said you have your PC, Xbox and DVR all hard-wired and working fine; are they currently able to get online while connected directly to the Linksys WRT54G? What devices are you trying to connect wirelessly to your Linksys WRT54G?

If you are currently getting Internet access let's check the wireless settings in your router.

Here are a few things you can do to verify your wireless settings in the Linksys WRT54G:

1. From your hard-wired PC, log into your Linksys WRT54G via the web-based interface. (Open Internet explorer and type 192.168.1.1) Note: this is the default IP address that comes on most Linksys routers.

If that doesn't work, verify your computers current IP address information by going to Start (or in Vista it's simply a windows icon), and selecting Run. Type CMD and hit Ok. Now type ipconfig and hit enter.

The default gateway information is the address of your router and should read something like 192.168.1.x.

Enter that address in Internet Explorer's address bar and hit Go.

2. If you connected successfully you should receive a username and password prompt, again the default username and password that comes with most Linksys devices is admin/admin, however it could be different if you've specified an alternate username/password. If you cannot remember the username/password, your only recourse is to perform a hard-reset of the device by using a small pin and holding the reset button on the back of the router.

3. Once you're in the router's web-based configuration there will be a section for "Wireless Settings" or "Wireless Configuration", or some derrevation. Depending on the version of firmware you have installed on the unit, it may be under Basic Setup or Advanced Setup.

You'll know you've located it when you have see options for SSID, Channel, Wireless Security/Encryption, WEP, WPA, etc.

This section will tell you the name of the signal your router broadcasts (also known as SSID). You can change this to whatever you like, in fact is reccommended you change to something unique so that you can easily identify your network when trying to connect with a laptop. You can also enable wireless security such as WEP or WPA, however for the purposes of troubleshooting let's leave encryption off for now. Once you've made the neccessary changes, select Save or Apply at the bottom of the page to save your changes.

4. Now, again since I don't know what you're attempting to connect wireless I will assume its a laptop with an intergrated wireless adpater, or possibly a USB or PCMCIA wireless adapter. Either way you should see your network (with the new name you've configured) in the list of avialable networks, do you see any networks listed? If the laptop has built-in wireless, is the WLAN switch enabled on the laptop? (Usually a small switch on the front or the side of the laptop indicating WLAN, or sometimes a function/fn key combination)

Hope this helps somewhat, give me some more information about what you're trying to connect wirelessly with and I'll see if I can help you out.

Cannot get router to work on PC hard cabled to router


no. We have two PC's and one lap top in the network and the two PC's have been on the system for the whole time. the laptop was new. Last night I worked with "smilemaker" and before all was said and done, I now have no internet service at my house.
When I try to load the software for the router, it says that it can't find the internet but eventually get to the screen when it ways that it is configuring the computer but never goes beyond that point. I have tried uninstalling the software, unplugging the router from power and the PC, then starting all over again and still have the same result.

Already tried it..


I can't tell if you tried turning off wireless, HARD WIRING your lap top to YOUR linksys. Did you.

Another way to see if you've done it right, it to turn off your Brother's linksys to see if you can still get onto the internet.

Also are there OTHER wireless routers in the neighborhood? It doesn't sound like you8're communicating with YOU router.

Light on my RCA cable modem goes off when I connect a wireless router (Linksys WRT54G). It was workign fine for good 12 months until I was cleaning under the desk and zoom the light is out. When I connect...


It sounds like the ethernet port has actually gone bad on the router. The light turns on when the device detects a phyiscal connection to another device. Your modem does not detect a connection to the router... But it does the PC. So you know the issue is with the router.

Linksys keeps disconnecting


Have you tried different ports on the router? If so have you tried other computers hard wired in? Hard wire in one of your laptops for awhile and see if they lose connection as well. If so then the problem is the router, but if they can stay connected then I would try either updating your network card drivers or getting a new network card perhaps. Let me know if that helps any.
