I presume you mean that you cannot connect to your linksys router from your laptop and have not used it before. You should make the initial connection using a network cable rather than wireless. Once you have done this you will be able to connect to the linksys router administration webpage by opening internet explorer (other web browsers are available) and typing in http://ipaddress where ip address is the default ip address as specified in the router getting started or installation guide. The default for Linksys routers is http://192.168.1.1 Once you can access the Administration page you should be able to configure the wireless settings using the inbuilt wizards.
You will need to connect directly to the router with a Ethernet cable to configure the wireless portion of the router. Once you have done that, then you should be able to do the configuration in the future using the wireless. If you do not have the manual, you can download it from the Linksys website.
If I understand you correctly. You cannot connect wirelessly at work with you laptop but you can connect with your desktop. 1. The laptop has to be allowed on the network by either MAC address ( Media Access Control) number or an IP (Internet protocol) address. 2. This is done by the administrator of the router. To allow the device to be seen by the router and and assign an IP address to that device to gain access to the server and be able to connect to the Internet. 3. At work you will have an IT administrator that will give a password/ user name to allow you to obtain access to the company server. I hope this helps. Have a great day.
Try a hardwire computer and get into the setup page of the router by typing 192.168.1.1 on your browser . Make sure you have changed the SSID or the network name of your router to your choice. Check if you have security set. If you have one make sure they match your computer.
a DNS server stands for domain name service. The DNS server translatesnames from IP addresses. The internet sees IP addresses such as 188.8.131.52 but the DNS server provided by your ISP translates it for you into fixya.com. You should be able to aquire the DNS server information from your internet provider (ISP) hope this helps.
Make sure you are plugging the SMC into the WAN port on the Linksys router and not the LAN ports. Your internet connection (which is your SMC) should always plug into your WAN port on the Linksys. Any computers that you may need to plug in, like Desktops that are "wired" and not "wireless", should plug into the LAN ports on the Linksys. If you are not using the WAN port on the Linksys for your SMC modem, then that would explain why you cannot get to the internet on wireless or wired computers.
Here's why you are getting the "low connectivity" message:
Computers don't understand why the Internet is connecting or not connecting...so the "low connectivity" message you keep receiving has nothing to do with your wireless signal strength. To a computer NIC, "low connectivity" means your network adapter could not find a DHCP server and receive a valid IP address. When this happens, your network adapter assigns an IP address to your computer in the following range...169.254.0.0, and will display the "low connectivity" message until it is able to receive a valid private IP address from the DHCP server. You can verify this by going to START | RUN and typing "cmd" (without the quotes), then hit ENTER. A black box will pop up....then type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER. This will show you your IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address, and you can verify that your IP address is in the 169.254.0.0 range. A valid private IP address is typically in the 192.168.0.0 range, but could also be in the 10.0.0.0 range, or the 172.16.31.0 range.
Also, make sure you have DHCP server enabled on the Linksys router for the LAN. This will ensure your "wired" and "wireless" computers receive a valid IP address.
The WAN port on your Linksys router should be configured to "Obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP".
click on Start -> Control Panel -> Network Connections -> Wireless Network Connections -> Properties -> In the box in the middle scroll to and click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" -> Click Properties -> Make sure "Obtain an IP Address Automaticaly" is Ticked -> make sure "obtain dns address automatically" is Ticked. -> ok -> click ok
See if you can connect
Click on Start -> Run -> Type CMD and hit enter. a command box will open. type in IPCONFIG/ALL

You didn't specify if you're using DSL or Cable internet.
With DSL, keep in mind the software
on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and
you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the
computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to
If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to
do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk,
which MUST be used regardless of connection type.
