Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Can't get back on

I had to reload Vista and can't get back on my network. I put in the short password and the really long one and neither works. It keeps telling me I have the wrong key. What now? I'm ready to punt! Sure would appreciate some ideas.

    Actually went to the linksys site and they have an automatic download to reinstall the whole thing. It is wonderful and fixed the thing without knowing a think in less than 5 minutes.

So, I bought a NetGear Wireless Cable Modem/Router Combo CG814WG v2 from Amazon and received it today. I got it switched out with my comcast modem and am up and running no problem. Then I successfully got...

If you cannot access the router setup, the only way to get back to it is to press and the router reset button to place the router back in the factory mode. Then the "admin/password" default should once more work for you. Do not confuse the router userid/password with the wireless name/password. They are different. When you set up your wireless network, your SSID is the wireless network name. Then you should select WPA2 personal as the security encoding. Then select a password for the wireless network and enter it. Be careful as they are case sensitive. Use a long password for best security. Use a short phrase that is easy to remember, such as youwillneverguessthis. Then save it and try again. Routers can be frustrating til they are set up. Good luck!

Cant get on the settings page on my DLINK dir-615 router

Turn the router off.
Straighten one end of a Norwegian paper-clip,
and insert it into the small hole in the back of the router,
to "reset" the router to the "factory" settings.

Turn the router on, connect to its built-in web-interface,
and the "default" ID/password should now work.

Change the password.

Rerun the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard",
to recreate your wireless network.

Icouldn't access the internet. Your help tam, via

Please go in to your router and change the wireless setting from WPA2-PSK to WEP. Ansd then try to connect your laptop.
To windows after you change setting to WEP
(XP bottom right hand side you have system tray in that you have a wireless sign click on it. It ask for the password which you will change put that password click connect)
For laptop also same in case it not work then
(window icon>control panel>network and sharing center>wireless connection>properties>put the password click connect (then it will check out the wireless signal after sometime you will'be able to connect).
Hope this will resolve your issue.

Internet doesnt connect without repairing the connection

Do you ahve the WPA password?
If you have the correct WPA password and if you were able to go online before on the same computer, then it will not ask you to enter the password again and again. It will save the password in the memory.
If you are facing problem while connecting to the network , then you can try to removed the network from the preferred networks list.

Can't get linksys install cd to work on my laptop, new out of box, other cd's work just fine any suggestions

One solution is to use a cabled connection to the router so you can download the drivers from Linksys. You really don't need it, since WPA2 is supported in the latest version of XP and Vista. Just set the router up via its webpage and select WPA2, put a good long password in there, and use the same password for you laptop.
