Ok - hook the power to the Linksys - then RESET - the folded out paper clip will work. Once RESET - hook it up to your ISP provided MODEM [ You must have this service to get on the web] now unplug the Modem provided by your ISP or provider - and unplug the router.
WAIT
15 seconds - then
hook up the MODEM from the provider - then hook up the router - then restart the laptop - if wired it will need to be plugged in - if wireless - run your 'search for a wireless signal and you should have it.

Thanks

I have a at&t modem trying to hook up linksys wrt54g2 wireless to it but cant figure out how to help please


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on thislink and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

The internet is hooked up and everything but it wont connect wirelessly to my laptop or ipod


On your laptop.... Make sure your internal wireless device is set to "Enable" It should see the Linksys right away. That wireless device should be set to DHCP for its IP Address.

No internet access with wireless


Hi,

First of all check the DSL cable must be in WAN port of the linksys router. if it is done then do the following.

Actually DSL modem and Linksys router are conflicting with their IP class. Means DSL and Linksys routers are using the same IP class of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1.

You must change one's IP class because both are routers and if they having same class they cant communicate. Unplug the WAN cable of the linksys. open browser and put ip 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 any one which works for u in the address bar. Username and password hopefully be admin admin or just admin and password blank field.
when you access the linksys router configuration page then come to LAN configuration. If there IP is 192.168.1.1 then change it to 192.168.0.1 and if it is 192.168.0.1 then change it to 192.168.1.1 Save configuration and reboot your laptop and plug dsl cable to linksys WAN port.
Hope now this will work.

Im hooking everything up right as im going through the 4 step intallation disk and it says Your new router does not appear to be connected properly.


make sure the cable going from your laptop/computer is connected - you NEED to be connected! or if you are going wireless and you know that your laptop wireless adapter is working and you can see the default wireless network - which is "linksys" (without the quotes) you should be able to connect to it and configure it without the CD..

You have to configure your laptop the router. For that First down load the CD which came with the linksys router to your laptop. It carries all the instructions how to set up the internet connection. After downloading, Connect your laptop to router with Ethernet cable. Normally the linksys link should come up automatically. If it doesn't open the linksys link by clicking on the icon on the desktop.it will give you step by step instructions on how to configure your laptop to the wireless router. You should not have any problems as it is simple

First steps (forgive me if you are already doing this). Hook up the laptop with cat5 network cable to port on router to verify you have internet connectvity. Verify router settings that DHCP is on or off. It should be on unless u are using static IP's on network. Go back wireless and see if you can connect. IF yo do, open a DOS prompt and use ping command (c:>ping 192.168.x.x ) where x.x are the ip setting of router. In most cases the router IP will be set to 192.168.1.1 Check the most basic settings. Sometimes it is a simple thing that is throwing everything off. Also consider if your laptop is at the very edge of your signal area. Try moving laptop right next to router.

Hope this helps.

If you purchased a Linksys wireless roter then you shoul not need the switch anymore-
Try going directly from your time warner modem into the Interner/WAN port on the router and then plug your desktop computer and the vontage phone system into 2 of the ports on the router. After everything is hooked up you will probably need to power cycle for it all to work correctly.
Please power cycle in this order:

Reboot modem - then Router- then Vontage phone system.

Hope this helps
