It sounds to me that u are using windows_vista ?? Vista has to have its OWN o/s software\programs made specially for it!
TRYOUT::turn off all virus scanning software,firewalls,etc,etc, EVERYTHING that loads automatically .One way is to wait after u turn on the computer.wait!, wait!, then close everything that sits on the bottom of the right screen.Connect your Linksys so that your o/s sees it., Load the drivers AFTER that, then see what happens.
TRYOUT 2:: goto [start]bottom left of screen (no!, the other left!!)ONLY KIDDING! [run] msconfig,select "secective startup", UNcheck everything that looks like it is protecting your computer.[reboot] then follow TRYOUT_1
GOOD LUCK, jardy

I want to connect a Scientific-Atlanta WebSTAR 2000 series Cable Modem to a Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G wireless router but the linksys doesnt detect the modem and the computer wont let the setup program for...


Most Cable Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Media Access Control (MAC) Address authentication to establish Internet connection for end-users. MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to the network adapter/s of the computer.
To set up your Linksys router to work with a Cable ISP, you have to enable the MAC Clone feature of the router. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the computer that's registered with the ISP.
To setup a Linksys router with Cable connection you need to perform four steps using the computer that's been registered with the ISP:
i. Verifying Internet Connection
ii. Connecting Devices Together
iii. Checking the Router's LEDs
iv. Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Internet Connection

Desktop will not connect to internet when router is connected unplug and go through modem will connect linksys program that came with router will not recognize the router when you setup, worked for over 2...


Each network adapter (in the Linksys router, or in your computer) has a unique 12-character code. Some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will require you to "register" this 'MAC' (Media Acquisition Control) address, before they grant an IP-address to the device (router or computer). So, when you "bypass" the router, you're showing a different MAC-address to the ISP, and they are not allowing that MAC-address to get connected. Talk to your ISP.

Or, some cable-modems check the MAC-address, allowing just one or two computers to connect. Turn the cable-modem off, to make it "forget" the MAC-addresses that have connected to it.
Connect the router to the cable-modem.
Turn the modem on.
Turn the router on.
Connect your computer to the router.
Restart your computer.

Or, maybe the router really is "dead'; try the above, before choosing this option, and before buying a new router.

NOOK is not capable of responding to the Linksys router


The tech was correct about that matter. However you can configure the MAC to always allow the device.
  1. Find your MAC for NOOK. I think you have already did.
  2. Go to Setting and then to the Second Page to find it.
  • Configuring MAC
  • Wireless MAC Filter. To filter wireless users by MAC Address, either permitting or blocking access, click Enable.
  • If you do not wish to filter users by MAC Address, select Disable.
  • Prevent. Clicking this button will block wireless access by MAC Address.
  • Permit Only. Clicking this button will allow wireless access by MAC Address.
  • Edit MAC Address Filter List. Clicking this button will open the MAC Address Filter List. On this screen, you can list users, by MAC Address, to whom you wish to provide or block access. For easy reference, click the Wireless
  • Client MAC List button to display a list of network users by MAC Address.
  • Change these settings as described here and click the Save Settings button to apply your changes or Cancel Changes to cancel your changes.

Please rate the answer as well. Feel free to contact if you have any other problems or if this solution didn't solve the issue.
Thanks for contacting Fixya!

Installing with mac


you can configure that router without using the bundle CD. the default ip address for that router is 192.168.1.1. open internet explorer then type the ip address which is 192.168.1.1. then the default username is "admin" (without " ") then password is "admin" also. then you are now on the linksys webpage and you can configure there. it is much easier to use rather than using the bundle CD.
hope this can help you!
good luck
