Re: I have two computer set up on my linksys one
You need to configure your router. For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then enable DHCP in both computer's network adapter tcp ip property so you not need to set manually ip for network. Then save settings and restart router. Then you can share files between computers.
Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

The port off to the side by itself is the one that should connect to your modem. If you have any wired computers, plug those in on any of the 4 grouped together. If the router does not function upon connecting everything, do a hard reset by holding in the reset button for 20-30 seconds. You will need to reconfigure it from a browser by visiting the address 192.168.1.1.
1.Have a computer hard wired to one of the wired ports of your router.
2.Open Internet explorer and type in 192.168.1.1
3.Leave the user name blank and type "admin" in the password box. If you have previously changed the username and password for the Linksys router, use those credentials instead. Once you have entered the correct username and password, the page will load the main configuration menu for the Linksys router.
4.You ll have option called security ..Choose it ..Enable WPA/WPA2 Encryption which has highest protection and click on Save Settings
it all depends on the win version you have.

Obviously you know how to set up your router, since you already have three computers hooked up.
I have many wireless/wired pc's and wireless/wired mac's on the same router, with no problem at all.
Many routers can handle upwards of 30-40 connections without a problem and high quality ones can handle 254 (that's the max for a class C subnet).
is the computer wired or wireless? try hard wiring the computer to the router or try doing a hard reset on the router. small hole on the back of the router, insert paperclip hold for a long 10 seconds... this will reset your router to factory settings as it came from the box.
First connect that desktop to linksys with ethernet cable. then set ip property to network adapter . Set ip address ,subnet mask and gateway ip to ip property. Set ip address as the ip of network like if router ip is 192.168.1.1 so set ip like 192.168.1.15 set subnet mask as same as your other computer. Set default gatway ip as your router ip. Then you can connect internet. Let me know if you need more assistance.
log into the WRT54G wireless router and ensure that you do not have it set up for only handing out 4 IP addresses also check the laptop to see if it is set to have a DHCP or static IP address, if it has a static IP and your network is dynamic then this is why it wont connect.
if this resolves your issue and you are happy with the answer please grade me accordingly.
Then you have your settings wrong, as I have the same setup for many years. The setup page of your router should be set basically default, it should be all set to auto ip and other than your dns there should not be anything else to set. I have 3 wireless and two wired devices and all of the computers .And the speed is constant,,something is wrong with your settings, if you can take a screenshot by opening the router homepage and hitting the print screen button on your keyboard, you can then hit paste on here and it will past the entire thing on here to examine
make sure that modem is connected to the linksys, and cords are properly seated.
if cords are seated correctly, hard wire computer to linksys first.
second, access the linksys software thru 192.168.1.1 on the address bar on internet explorer browser.
third,if you will see pop-up box asking for username and password.username must be left blank and password must be set to admin.
forth,inside the linksys software try to access wireless settings.
who is your internet service provider and what is the operating system of your computer. If you cant recall the password for the router then you can reset it and start from scratch. By the way the default password of your router is admin.
