There should not be a problem with a computer running 7 and the router. The one thing you will have to worry about is if the wireless card in your computer will have 7 support. I know if you have a 32-bit (x86) installed, you won't have any issues. Just be sure you update the drivers for it. If you have the 64-bit version, check with manufacturer to see if they have 64-bit support for the wireless.

Good luck.

I have 4 wireless computers connected to Linksys wrt54gs. Sice I have operating systems XPS, Vista & Windows 7. Can I use the same model Linksys? thank you for your attention. Jorge at...


You should have no problems. Wireless is a protocol onto itself which is not OS specific. Hence the ability to use game consoles, security cameras and even phones on a wireless network.

The port of Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router


What do you want to know about the ports? The one separated from the other ports is the Internet port. that is where you're going to connect the cable from your modem. The other four are the ethernet port where you will connect the computers.

I cannot set up my Linksys wireless router model number:WRT54GS to work properly. I have a desktop computer with Windows XP operating sysyem. I have three other laptop computers with wireless components


Hi,

The easiest would be to connect your desktop straight to your modem and verify that you can connect to the Internet. Do not use the LinkSys WRT54GS yet. Pop in the CD that came with the WiFi Router and run the setup wizard. Follow exactly on screen instructions. Verify that your desktop's networking is set to auto obtain IP address.

Alternately, you can try:
1. connect your desktop with a straight through LAN cable to Ethernet Port #1 of the WRT54GS;
2. set your desktop to use IP-192.168.1.10, Subnet Mask-255.255.255.0, Default Gateway-192.168.1.1;
3. open a browser and goto 192.168.1.1. use the LinkSys supplied username and password;
4. verify/configure/set the LinkSys to your preference;
5. for the time being do not use any security keyphrase, WEP WPA or MAC filter;
6. verify that your laptops could see the router's SSID;
7. verify that all laptops are set to auto obtain IP addresses;

If for some reason neither method will not work, pls post back with your modem's make & model.

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.

Linksys wrt54gs cant connect..


hi try this before you hit the reset botton. Check if Windows XP firewall or 3rd party firewall are blocking the pings, and temporarily disable them just to be sure. The WRT54GS has a feature called "AP Isolation", It's on the "Wireless -> Advanced Settings" page. You won't need it for home use so turn it off as well. Last thing, do a firmware upgrade. Hope it's helps Good luck.
