You are able to connect wireless but not accessing the internet because of wrong WAN or lan settings. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then clickon WAN settings and make sure settings are correct as your internet service provider settings. If you have static ip from ISP then configure as static ip enter all ip and dns but if you need user and password for connect internet then configure as PPPoe then enter user and password then save settings and restart router then check.Also enable DHCP on router then in tcp ip property of your wireless network as get ip automatic then check. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

    Everything was working fine this morning. I have a home pc and two laptops hooked up with wireless. My internet went down and now I can't get the two laptops back on wireless. I unplugged everything and rebooted. I can connect the laptops to the wireless but can't get on internet. I also can't get to the router. I tried all the urls and even my gateway ip.

  • If you are not able access router with defaults ips then press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults then try to access it with default ips.

You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Connecting wireless router to laptop computer


Try changing the channel on the router. It would be better to isolate the problem first by trying to connect to other wireless networks on your laptop or having someone's laptop connect to your home wireless network.

Cannot connect to the internet with my laptop


To connect to the router wirelessly using a Windows XP, right click on the wireless network connection icon on the lower right corner of the screen and choose view available wireless networks. Select your existing network and click on the connect button. If you are using Vista, go to network and sharing center of your control panel then select connect to a network. If you still having problems, please provide details of the problem like your Internet service provider and if there are already other computers online with your WRT54G2.
