Question about Computers & Internet

3 Answers

My four computers do not work on the WRT54G. Since it was set up, I have one computer reliably able to get online via the router and Hughes Broadband Satellite service, which I put in to use the router. Two others of my computers are sporadically able to get online. But at no time have I been able to get more than two computers online. All these three computer are wired into the ports, two of which are also capable of wifi to connect that way. The 3rd other computer is unable to get online, though I bought a Lincsys WRE54G range extender for it to do so. I have configured and re-configured my computer settings so very often, and tried very often to get the default settings on the router to work. I inv itable end up with a notation on the screen of eacxh of the computers when rejected that the IP address is anablew to be accessed. What on earth is happening? How do I get this thing to work consistently? As soon as I added the range extender I got problems with the one computer that had been reliably online, and has since I unplugged the range extender. I have reset the rourter very many times to try to make it

    Thank you all for your recommendations.

    In the process I have successfully got two of my computers consistently on line, even simultaneously.

    But in the process, the network configuring of my main laptop has gotten messed up, which was the only one originally working consistently!

    When I run the Linksys router setup wizard program it quits after checking the router and the computer, continually cycling to demand the password, then checkig again, a long and tedious process because there is no further progress. so the thing is somehow stuck!

    How can I clean out the network programs bin to start all over with this computer.

    I cannot find the program in the program list, so cannot remove the Linksys setup that way.

    How do I do it?

    Thank you.

    The fourth computer unable to be gotton online I've just forgotten about that one for the time being.

This may be caused by what the other expers have said about DHCP servers.

This may also be a problem of limited outside IP addresses incase this is a Bridged type connection.

First we should try static ip settings.

on your computers network settings start with setting the ipaddress to

192.168.1.5

then for the 2nd computer
192.168.1.6

for the 3rd computer
192.168.1.7

for the 4th computer
192.168.1.8

All subnets are default 255.255.255.0
Default gateway is 192.168.1.1 - the address of the wireless router or the satellite box

settings in the wlan router need to be changed to manual ipadress 192.168.1.1 - 255.255.255.0
DHCP off

Hi,

Have you tried static IP addresses on all of your PCs even if DHCP is enabled in the router?

Additionally, pls try with the WEP, WPA or MAC Filter off/disabled.

Alternately, on the units that are WiFi capable, pls try configuring the Wireless LAN Properties Advanced tab to use "ANY" or your SSID.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information on how to setup/configurre static IP adds..

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi FThorne,

    with the indulgence of sweet_rascal...

    If your Hughes Broadband Satellite service is anything similar to Gilat Satellite Network, then the problem is both the satellite modem and the LinkSys WRT54G are operating with their DHCP function ON. This is not acceptable in a closed loop home network. A network can not have more than one DHCP server, so it is either the Hughes Broadband Satellite or the LinkSys WRT54G or not to use either or both, hence my initial suggestion of using static IP adds. Alternately, you can disable either one's DHCP. However since you have wireless, perhaps it is to your advantage to retain the DHCP feature of the LinkSys and disable that of the Hughes.

    and hi again FThorne,

    Still having issues? Have you tried disabling the DHCP of the Hughes Broadband Satellite, use static IP on the WAN side of the LinkSys as well as using the 192.168.1.XX on all of your computers?

As far as i understand u want to make a LAN between those 4 systems right?

Posted on May 04, 2008

  • dewan nafees ahmed May 04, 2008

    ok this is my view..
    as far as i think.. u need not strain much in connecting all the systems online.. just connect the online system to the router and then connect other systems to the router. there is no need of doing a configuration also... because this how we use 3 computers at our house..
    also u said one system is not at all connecting.. check if u r using the proper "straight" cable to connect it..
    also try all the solutions given by benimur.. u may get fixed at some point..

    good luck..

    have a good day..

How do i net work four computers to the internet


Hi For connecting four computers to the internet,you can use two ways
1. Connect 1 PC to net and then share connectivity 2. Use a router, connect the router with internet and connect all the PC's to the router so that all will enabled with internet
Better go for the second option as it will ensure a more reliable and error free network
Thanks

Cant hook up


ok... so im guessing your using sat for internet, so you would set one plug with zyxel PL-100 and it sending signal in, while adding zyxel PL-100 a computer works, and another craps out... Solution: use a router
insert satalite into wan port, set up router
run a client wire from the router to a zyxel PL-100
and the others should pick up off that one..

like so.. :direct from zyxel website specific for pl-100

Does a satellite internet network require a special wireless router or will a DSL wireless router work? (Huges satellite)


They will provide you connection on their satallite modem. You can use any wireless router of your choice with the same.

If you already have a cable /dsl internet and also a wireless router , you just need to get a wireless card for your computer that will serve as a wireless receiver so you will be able to get online wirelessly on that computer but if you don't have a wireless router you also need to get one, You ca check this model number for the wireless adapter WUSB54GC and for the router WRT54G....

I have a linksys wireless-g broadband router model#wrt54g. this unit was working fine, until today when suddenly it was as if the computer( desktop model DEll dimension 8400 running widows vista ultimate)...


try to plug all the connection as it was before, then you will be able to access your wireless f router via web based control panel and from there you will be able to configure the settings, if its automatic or you have to set as static, it depends on the modem, if the modem requires you to dial up for the connection so that the router may be able to read the connection and you will start to have the internet connection as soon as the modem reads the router through this setting, the web access by default is 192.168.1.1 and the defaul username would be admin and password is admin.

hope thi help you out, if theres anything you need to ask just send me question...

I need a new power plug for my model #befw11s4 router


That model uses a 12-volt A/C power adapter. You can most probably use any power supply 10-15V without a problem, and it is a very common adapter.

A new power supply from Radio Shack or Best Buy will probably cost you as must as a replacement 802.11b router like that one.

FYI - 802.11g or Super-G or Dyno-G or whatever each company touts it router as having is basically enhanced B - it is 100% compatible in 99% of the routers. So a new Linksys WRT54G can often be found for $25 on sale in brick and mortar stores, and the same online. They will work with your existing 802.11b adapter in your computer.

I have a wireless g pci adapter and it is installed on a computer running windows 2000 server. It is supposed to receive the signal from the wireless router wrt54g. It does not find the signal but somehow...


Hi, did you run the CD before you connected the adapter? I know the box says 'easy, no set-up' but there usually is a CD that needs to be run BEFORE connecting the device. If thats done, try bringing up the 'connect to a network' interface, selecting your network and click connect. If you have set up a wireless security password, enter it and click connect. The network cable unplugged is normal when you are running a wireless setup. I hope this is of some help.

Iam trying to connect my laptop to the innet. i have wrt54g router.


Hi jjroyc

Let's see if we can get your laptop connected to the Internet.

First, I have some questions and a few instructions for you.

(01) Is this a new (to you) router?

(02) Do you already have one or more computers connecting successfully to the Internet using this router?

(03) If yes, are any of them connecting wirelessly?

(04) Have you recently (at another location for example) successfully connected this laptop to the Internet? If so, did you connect it "wired" or "wirelessly".

(05) Are you trying to connect your laptop to your router "wirelessly" or "wired"?

(06) If you are trying to connect the laptop wirelessly, turn off your laptop's wireless radio and connect the laptop to the router "wired" instead (using an "Ethernet Patch Cable"). Once we've established that the laptop is capable of connecting to the Internet via the simpler "wired" connection, then we'll move on to the more complex wireless connection.

(07) Please, go HERE to download the manual for your particular router. You will need to determine the version number of the WRT54G model 1st. There are instructions there that will guide you through this.
