SOURCE: Linksys Wireless-G not connecting to internet

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".

Cheers!

SOURCE: Problems with a Linksys Wireless-G Router

I would appear that your router has not taken the settings from your provider. There are a number of things that you can try; I recommend them in this order.
1. Turn off your modem, router and computer. Give then all a minute to get cold.
2. Turn on the modem, wait 30 seconds, turn on the router, wait 30 seconds, then boot your computer. Most of the time everything will be fine at this point.
3. If not, check the router setup. You access your router by opening your browser on a hardwired computer and entering 192.168.1.1. At the signon, leave the user blank and enter "admin" for the password. Check out the setup. If you don't know how to do this, repost or contact me -- there's just too many possibilities to list in this response.
4. If all of that looks fine, you may need to upgrade you router firmware. Not for the faint of heart, but you can download the latest from linksys and install it.
Try these things; if you don't have success, document carefully what happens at each step and I'll get you through it.

To manually configure the wireless security on your router, follow the following steps :
  1. Access the web-based utility of your router. To do so, type http://192.168.1.1 in your browser
  2. By default, the username is blank and the password is admin. Unless you have changed those information while setting up the router using the setup software.
  3. Set the Configuration View to Manual
  4. Go to Wireless -> Basic Wireless Settings
  5. Set the Network mode to "Mixed"
  6. You can change the SSID to one of your choice. By default, it is like "Ciscoxxxxx"
  7. Put Channel Width to "Auto"
  8. Click Save Settings to apply the changes.
  9. Next, go to Wireless -> Security
  10. I suggest you choose WPA Personal or WPA2 Personal
  11. Enter a passphrase between 8 and 63 characters and save your settings.
Hope theses instructions help !

The internet is disconnecting that means the problem is with the router. you also said that the router is getting hot.
I think probably you can try to upgrade the firmware of the router.
Or if it is a new router then try to get it replaced from the store.

No more internet thru router after new modem installed


Router setup
Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the Comcast cd installed. then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line.

Did Comcast reset you wireless router settings? If so, you may need to set up your SSID and security settings.


Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
To change the router’s SSID or the wireless network’s name, click here.
To change the router’s channel, click here.
To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

No internet connection when i installed the linksys wireless router


You are using the linksys' self assigned IP rather than integrate the router into your network via something like dhcp configuration and as a result, you can't connect to the internet

I want to install HG510 provied by mtnl


You have to take a pen and hit the reset button, and hold in on it for about thirty seconds to minute. Be sure to re-secure your wireless internet after that, so your neighbors can't use it, by using a personal password. It is located under basic wireless setup on the router page. 192.168.1.100 is the default after the reset of linksys been pressed.
