Hi,

Since your ISP is new, you need to do a reset on the router. Reset involves pressing a small recessed button at the rear of the unit for about 10 seconds or more.

On the Vista PC, pls verify that it is set to Auto obtain IP add and to connect to your router/WiFi network even if the network is unsecured.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa..

No internet access with wireless


Hi,

First of all check the DSL cable must be in WAN port of the linksys router. if it is done then do the following.

Actually DSL modem and Linksys router are conflicting with their IP class. Means DSL and Linksys routers are using the same IP class of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1.

You must change one's IP class because both are routers and if they having same class they cant communicate. Unplug the WAN cable of the linksys. open browser and put ip 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 any one which works for u in the address bar. Username and password hopefully be admin admin or just admin and password blank field.
when you access the linksys router configuration page then come to LAN configuration. If there IP is 192.168.1.1 then change it to 192.168.0.1 and if it is 192.168.0.1 then change it to 192.168.1.1 Save configuration and reboot your laptop and plug dsl cable to linksys WAN port.
Hope now this will work.

I bought a new hp desk top with explorer vista. I am trying to get a wireless connection form my existing linksys wireless G 2.4 and have not been successful installing the driver. so I have not been able...


Explore the CD and check if it has drivers for Windows Vista. If none, check their website and look for any available drivers or see if it is already compatible with Windows Vista.

Below is the link for Linksys wireless adapters:

Cant get to internet thru linksys etherfast cable/dsl router


Reset the modem while the router is plugged into it. Do this by disconnecting the power to the modem and then reconnecting.

Linksys Wireless-G (WRT54GS (EU/LA/UK))


I have had that issue quite often and found that when you are using a router with DSL, the DSL modem and Router IP has a conflict because they are the same number. I suggest looking into a D-Link wireless router for use with DSL.

The Computer doesn't recognize the Router (And Yes. the wireless switch is turned on)


DON'T use the software.

Are you trying to connect by way of ethernet cable or wireless?

Either way you do it, you do NOT need that crap software. 90% of the time, that software interferes with everything. Up to AND INCLUDING preventing your system from connecting to the router.

Before you can get any help with this, you will need to give us more information about your setup.

NOTE: We CAN NOT POSSIBLY figure out all of the variables if you do not give them to us. So don't go marking my post as "Thanks for trying" just because your problem is not solved in the first post.

Instead, if you want answers, you're going to have to be more specific.

I see a Linksys WRT54G wireless router. Is there a version number on there?

Example: WRT54G v3 (Mine.)

You're also going to have to tell us more about your computer. Is it Windows XP? Service Pack 1/2? Windows Vista? Linux even? (Give model numbers if it's a pre-built system from an OEM manufacturer such as HP, Dell, etc.)

Then there's the internet connection. Cable internet? DSL? Satellite? Give us MODEL NUMBERS of the equipment they have issued to you for your internet connection.

Then tell us how you have things connected. Wireless? Ethernet cable? What is connected to what?

See what I mean?

FULL details bring quicker resolution of your problem. I will be monitoring this post as you seem capable of providing this information to us. When I see more complete information, I will help you further from there.

Thanks. :)
