Question about Linksys Wireless-G WET54G 802.11g/b (WET54GSUK) Wireless Bridge

1 Answer

WET54G stops working

I bought a WET54G wireless bridge about a month ago.

Upstairs I have one Linksys WAP54G wireless router set up next to the modem and the wireless bridge set up downstairs. I set up the IP's properly so there was no problems there and everything was working great until last weekend.

Suddenly the bridge just stopped working. I couldn't even get the setup program to find it on the network. I reset it and that seemed to work, i went back in and configured everything again and it worked for a week but now as of today it's back once again, not working.

The bridge refuses to show up on the network and I can't access it either over the network or directly from my computer. The only thing i noticed is the security on the network for some reason was disabled and someone with the name "Nuke" had access to the bridge. I've now banned them and turned security back on.

Could i just have a bad bridge or is there something i'm not thinking of?

Well first off u prolly got hacked, he prolly made a backdoor by now, if he changed the settings on your bridge i reccomend resetting the device to factory defaults then updating the firmware, then obtain a physical copy or digital copy of the book "wireless hacking for dummies" not saying that u r adumb or any thing but this is really good resource to teach u to tighten up your security.

I need to stop others outside using my internet


you need to turn on password based encryption (aka security) that will turn your unsecured wireless network into a secured one.
open a browser window and then type http://192.168.1.0 or http://192.168.1.1 and enter your router settings. change settings including password. unless you've set it up differently and actually have a username and password, leave the username space blank and use "admin" as the password. that's often the default password on a linksys. linksys has a great support page. they have the drivers, manuals, the works.
your specific page for the drivers and the manual for your router which includes specific info including password, setup procedures, explanation of the various settings, how to do a hard factory reset, etc. is here http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WET54G - click on the download button below the picture

Cant acess the set up wizard


First you will need to check the wireless settings of the router. If you don't know the wireless settings of the router then you will need to open the set up page of the router and get the wireless settings. You will need wireless network name ( SSID ) , wireless channel, type of the wireless security and wireless network key or passphrase.

Click Here to know how to check the wireless settings of the router.

If you know the wireless settings of the router then you will need to open the set up page of the WET54G and put the same wireless settings on the wireless briidge.

Cant get the Linksys to find the Optus DSL network


do you have security enabled on the wireless router?
if so, disable to security and see if you can connect.
if it works, check if you set the router security to use WPA2- it is possible that your laptop/wireless card doesn't support it- try to use WPA instead

Wet54g will propperly communicate to a cisco 1310


make sure you switch anything that says 'proprietary', or is just not standard 54g with the wireless settings.

Some manufacturers will put in auto-discovery services that only that same manufacturer of wireless access point will understand, this can sometimes cause problems for bridge communication.

Making a wrt54gc wireless router work with a wet54g bridge


You shouldn't have to enter your SSID unless you have it hidden. Also, make sure you have the correct encryption set on both sides. WEP/WPA/WPA-2 for the Security type and TKIP/AES for the Encryption type. They need to match your router.

Also, you need ot make sure you are entering the correct IP/gateway/subnet mask address or have DHCP enabled.

Good luck

Linksys WAP54G connection to WRT54G


Ok, so why do you need an access point upstairs and a router downstairs connected wirelessly? If you can't connect with a laptop or a pc, why whould you think you could connect the access point? The purpose of this configuration would have to be with the access point to the router via ethernet. What's the point? If the problem is range, check out http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php to enhance the capabilities of the WRT54G... and maybe building a parabolic antenna for it as well. Plans to do so abound at Lifehacker.com.
