    I would love to help you out. But first I will need a liitle bit more information. What are you trying to connect to it with? Have you reset it to factory defaults? Is there a WEP or WPA key?

peter_picasa:

You cannot use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) to connect directly to your IPS's modem. A WAP does not provide the ability to share a single IP address on the internet like a router does.

Either return the WAP for a refund and buy a wireless router or buy an Ethernet wired-only router and plug the WAP into the LAN side of that router. You would then plug the WAN side of the Ethernet wired router into your modem.

Thanks for using FixYa.

As last resort you might want to use a JTAG cable and debricking programming software. If your router is brikced or you want to change the firmware this cable can do it. The cable will connect to your parallel port and your wireless router so you can repair your router. They are about $5.95.

Linksys wrt54g SRX200. I can connect to my router


It appears the connection between the Linksys and the modem is not working.
Try a different LAN cable.
Check the LAN cable from the modem to the Linksys, it should be connected to the WAN/Internet port on the Linksys.

My Linksys will connect with a cable but wont connect wireless!


Connect with a cable, and then follow the directions in the manual that came with the router, in order to connect to the web-server "inside" the router. Run the "Wireless Setup Wizard" to configure your wireless network.

Wireless connection


Possible you did reset the router. Its okay to connect to that linksys network name. But if you want to customize you network name.

MAKE SURE TO USE THE WIRED COMPUTER TO SETUP WIRELESS CONNECTION.
Example : The Desktop computer that is connected to directly to router.


Just follow the steps.

You can have multiple computers connected to the router. What seems to be the problem.

The lights are on but the linksys is not working


Certainly if the conection directly from the router to the computer is not working then the wireless won't work. So that's where I'd start. Cable connections could be an issue. The connection without the router works I assume. Make sure you are connected correctly. You need ethernet cabling to the ethernet, networking connections to and from the internet device to the computer and into and out of the router. When you get the direct router connections working you can solve your wireless problems.

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.
