Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GX Router (WRT54GX2)

1 Answer

Can't connect or even get past setup.

Hi, this is for the WRT54GX2 wireless router. I run the setup cd, and after it goes past some screens it asks me for a username and password, and in the manual it says leave the username blank and enter "admin" (without the quotes) as the password. I do, and click next, but it just takes me to that same page (like something's not correct). And I can't go any further. And it doesn't even connect the main computer to the internet. I have to completely disconnect the router and just connect the modem to connect to the internet.

When this first happened, I pressed the reset button in for at least 30 seconds, the one that's in the back of the modem. But it still does this. Is there anything I can do or try?

Hmmm...

ok, first question:  Are you running the setup CD while the computer has a physical cable connecting it to the router, or are you trying to do this completely over wireless?'

For most wireless routers, initial setup works best using a physical cable.

also, it's possible that the manual reversed username and password:  try USERNAME Admin, BLANK password.

Unable to setup N Wireless Router in Apartment


Hi.

you do not have to run tye setup disk..

go to command prompt and do ipconfig
find the default gateway,launch internet explorer and in the address box type in the default gateway make sure the router is hardwired as sometimes it does not work on a wireless conection when you configure it.

If you get the router's console page it means that the router is getting detected(you can also ping the gateway on the command prompt to check the same)

on the console page you can fill all the settings and save them..the router will reboot and then you shold be able to use the router with proper internet and wireless settings.

Try to reconfigure the printserver using the setup CD that came with it. Normally that will fix the problem. Make sure the driver of your Printer is installed first before running the printserver setup.

Can't connect with 2nd computer...


1st.  What brand and model # of your router? 2. The router cd should be run only on the computer u have connected to the router with a network cable. Your vista laptop. Is it connected with to the router with a cable? 3. If so, it will be the one used to configure your router for wireless setup. When you ran the setup it should have gone thru Wireless Setup. It will ask you for an SSID. That is a name you will give your wirless network. It can be anything you want. just remember it.  It will also ask you to setup security for your wireless network. follow the instructions to setup a password. write it down. This is an important step so anyone cannot just logon to your wireless signal an start using ur internet connection or gain access to your computers. 4. when u setup your dongle on your kids computer it will search for wireless signals in the area. you will look for the one u setup in the previeous step. you will select it and it should ask you for the passkey you setup. once connected you will have access to the internet.
Think of your router as a private radio station and the wireless usb dongle is the radio. The only way your computers can tune to it is using the dongle and if you know the name of the station (your SSID) and the passkey.

Slow speed


If you are connecting wirelessly, what you can do is change the wireless channel of the router by accessing the router's Setup Page. The distance is also 1 factor so you need to stay in a good range. If you are hardwired to the router, you can try to change the MTU of the router through the Setup Page as well. MTU value should be Manual 1492 and save the changes.

I think the solution is to go back to the old firmware, but I haven't been able to find a copy yet, Once I find firmware version 1.01.14 for the WRT54GX2 router. I will let you know if this is the solution... :)

Step 11 and 12...


I would guess you didn't do it in the correct order.

Are you 100% positive th  Ethernet cables are in the right ports?

Check the one that goes from the modem, to the router.

If that doesn't help, would you let me remotely control your PC and see what it looks like?
