Cannot Connect to Router

I have a linksys router and I cannot connect to Internet wirelessly since my power outage a few days ago. I have tried everything the Linkys guide has told me to do but it still says limited or no connectivity. I'm not sure what to do next...any ideas?
I can see my network when I go online and type in my WEP Key but then it says I'm connected but I'm not. When I try to ping a website on the cmd it fails.

Open the set up page of the router check the wireless settings of the router.
I think your network is secured and you are not typing the correct network key.
just open the router set up and check the wireless settings .
Make sure that the DHCP server on the router is enabled.

My wireless router isn't working


I think you should reset the router and reconfigure it.
If the wired computer is also not working then I think you need to reconfigure it for sure.

Lost power & now when i reset all my equipment my wlan light doesn't go on & we can't connect to the internet ???


Hi rick,

I see that there was a power outage, now your wireless will not turn ON as you mentioned.

Have you tried checking the Linksys Router settings if the Wireless radio is turned ON.

It is possible that when the power went out the Router was reset to default and may have turned OFF the Wireless Radio on the Router.

  • Next open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Enter admin for both the username and password.
  • You should see the Setup page.

Make sure that in the Wireless page that the Wireless SSID Broadcast is Enabled because if it is Disabled your wireless device will not detect the Router at all.

Also you try and reset the Router from behind, there should be a PINHOLE Button there that you can press and hold down for at least 30 seconds to reset the Router s settings to defaults.

If still the Wireless Light will not Turn ON then most probably the Power outage may have damaged the wireless radio on the Router.

I hope that this will help with your concern.

Have a nice day,

mvincentc

If you connect the computer to the router , it works.
That means the wired connection is OK.

Connected to the router but router cannot connect


Assuming no other changes to your environment first try restarting everything - from the outside in. Start by restarting the cable/dsl modem, then the router, then the computer - allowing each to completely reset before going to the next.

You might also want to contact the provider to check availability in your area - in case there are known outages in your area.

My WRT54G linksys was connected 3 days ago to the laptop and the ps3. two days ago, i couldnt connect to the internet on the ps3, but could on the laptop. Yesterday, i couldn't connect on either one. I've...


First steps (forgive me if you are already doing this). Hook up the laptop with cat5 network cable to port on router to verify you have internet connectvity. Verify router settings that DHCP is on or off. It should be on unless u are using static IP's on network. Go back wireless and see if you can connect. IF yo do, open a DOS prompt and use ping command (c:>ping 192.168.x.x ) where x.x are the ip setting of router. In most cases the router IP will be set to 192.168.1.1 Check the most basic settings. Sometimes it is a simple thing that is throwing everything off. Also consider if your laptop is at the very edge of your signal area. Try moving laptop right next to router.

Hope this helps.

Computer says I'm connected to wireless but no internet connection...can connect directly through modem.


A few more thoughts:
1. Have you installed or changed any firewall or security settings?
2. Try resetting the router, turning off the modem for a minute. Then turn them back on and give it another try.
3. Are you sure that your laptop is connected to your router and not your neighbor's? (Look at "Network Connections" in control panel.)
4. If you have another ethernet cable, connect to the router with a cable and then try to reach the internet.
5. If none of this helps, then look under the couch cushions for some cash to buy a new router.
6. Good luck!

I can't get my new Vista computer to connect to my wireless network


I experienced a similar problem with a Vista laptop a few weeks ago. There were no apparent problems, so I uninstalled the wireless network adapter from the Windows "device manager" and then let it automatically reinstall the wireless adapter when it rebooted. The local wireless network appeared about 5 minutes after the reboot and has been working ever since.

If that doesn't help, try removing the Linksys software from your computer and try the network adapter remove/reinstall again.
