Computers have limited connection to linksys wrt54g although signal is full strength


Limited connectivity
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and then click Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.
Also try resetting the wireless router by turning off the power to the wireless router for a few minutes and the boot up your computers.

I HAVE A WRT54G. I AM DROPPING MY WILDBLUE SATELLITE INTERNET SERVICE BECAUSE MY DIAUP IS FASTER AND MUCH CHEAPER. I WANT TO RUN THE NEW PHONE LINE TO A PC WHICH HAS A PHONE MODEM AND AN ETHERNET PORT. CAN...


The answer that he gave you is not accurate. In fact you can use your wireless over dial-up. This however takes a little work. You will need to setup internet connection sharing on your desktop with the modem. If you can get the sharing working, then you can use your ethernet card on your PC to transfer the internet back to your wireless router.

This will work, it has been a few years since I have done it, but I used it this way for several years.

Can't get my son's hp Mini to connect to our router. Secured or not. It has worked on other routers before.


My guess would be that the 'dynamic' IP address cannot be resolved properly on your home network: try using a Fixed/Hardcoded IP address in TCP/IP Internet Protocol for your son HP Mini. Let me know how you go.

My son has a wireless internet laptop


Could be alot of things.

The host name and domain are mainly for organizational purposes, like tags.
If you're using wireless a recognizable CCID is good to have.

If your son is using wireless, he will need to have the security Key, that's set on the Router, in order to go through it. He may be able to connect to the router, but won't be able to go through it to the Internet without the key.

Also, if your son is using a Windows 98 or prior, he will have to use the correct Login credentials. These operating systems don't tell you when you're not using the correct credentials, till you try to do something on the network. More recent Operating systems correct this.

The first step is onto the network, so see if you can see his computer on the network as a "Workgroup Computer".

The second step is through the routers security settings.

Hope something here helps.

I have a linksys WRT54G wireless router set-up. The problem is when I add the security features (to keep the neighbours from hijacking my signal) my son's MAC laptop and Play Station 3 won't work.


You want to secure the wireless network.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router with the cable.
Check the IP address on the computer. Open the router set up page.
Once you open the set up page, you will find the option to make it secured

Please open your router page and open the DMZ page give an IP address.
Then open X-box page and force the same ip address it will allow your x-box to communicate with the router.

Using my linskys router


If you have internet through a cellphone, it doesn't sound like the router can help you-- it's meant to split up a wired broadband connection like cable internet or DSL internet from your home phone lines. the router certainly was built to let you share a broadbank net connection-- you didnt mention if you have one or not-- not a cellphone connection... you might have to spring for another card if you need to stick with just the cellphone connection.
