Question about Linksys (WRT54GC) Router

1 Answer

Linkseys I have been on the internet looking up linseys problems. Everyone seems to have the same problem but yet linkseys does not want to admit that it is there equipment. I can not get a continous connection with my DSL through my linksys router. Yet if I hook my DSL up straight to one of my computers I have no problems, and I had no problems with my DSL for the 3 years I have had my service from using this router. I hate to say it but Linkseys equipment is just a piece of junk. The sad thing is I work from home and loose money when this happens to me. Irritated, frustrated and disqusted.

Hello there.

I have a Linksys router too so i feel your pain. If you haven't already, check the Linksys website for updated firmware for your router, this helped mine a lot!

Hope this helps.

Need the security code for my linkseys router

user name is admin.

if there is a pass required, it is admin

if you entered something and forgot it, do a hard reset. Find the hole in the bottom or the back and insert a paperclip. Gently depres and hold the button down for 3o or more seconds. Oh yea, unplug it first.

Keep getting dns error,for couple of days then works fine then starts again ?

if u have your own internet connection then you have to see if the modum is intact bc mine used to do that and i found out there was a wire loose and i fixed if ur using wifi and maybe like a neighboors connection like linkseys or default or etc.. then they might be moving somethings around which causes the internet to go on and off

3 desktops One modem 2 linkseys

Do you understand that most of the help you receive here is people helping people for free.
In other words we don't get paid from fixya...
What you should do is call comcast and there techs can take over your computer and fix the settings in two minutes after they receive your information about your equipment. I agree that Microsoft could nor would help other then show you how to make your connections if you are using MS instead of Linksys connections. But just that fact that someone tried to help you make me think that person was not lazy.
Now if you think me lazy, ok but the best solution, fastest solution, would be to contact Comcast, and mention you are paying them for service. Good evening.

Power surge on hub port on my computer

Try unplugging everything from the hub and if that doesn't work then disable the hub.
You can either buy a new hub or buy a USB card. Both get the same results.

I had to move everything and now i can not find where do i plug it into.....the linkseys blue wire with the clear plug in....where does it plug into

I'm assuming you mean the internet wires... The one from the wall goes into the modem provided by your ISP (internet service provider) (should be the slot at the very bottom).. :

A) From there, if you have a router, one must go from the modem to the "modem" input on your router.. From there, plug in the cord in either slot 1,2,3,4 and connect it to the back of your computer (it will only fit in one slot).

B) If you do not have a router, just plug the other cord into the top of the modem, and then connect that to the back of the computer.
