Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
Just stopped working. all lights light up - but internet does not work Linksys wireless-g broadband router
You did not post model, you did not post what operating system on your computer either. general help therefore only can be provided. if you post required data, then i can provide more detailed instructions how to check your router.
disconnect all cables from the router, including power cable, wait about 20sec then insert cable connecting to the computer, insert cabel connecting your telephone line and then insert power cable.
in about 2min router should connect itself to the line and to the computer.
check if you have valid ip address on your computer (in most linksys routers it will look someting like: 192.168.1.***), that will meant that router did establish connection with computer. check if you can connect to the internet (through the cable!), if you can, this meant that your router is working correctly, so is your computer. disconnect cable and check if you can connect via wireless, if yes, problem is solved, if you cannot, check and compare settings between your computer and router, problem ususally is wrong credentials on the computer or wrong protocol. both of these must be same on the router and on the computer.
if you use wep, wep must be in both, on router and on the computer, if you use network name johnny, exactly this same spelling in router and computer must follow, same with password. and do not use spaces in passwords! especially if you use password on every login...
