Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

2 Answers

When I set the security setting to high on my Linksys Wireless G, none of my iphones or ipad will connect. I put in the password and it doesn't find the router. What am I doing wrong. If I have it unsecured it works fine. I've even changed the password twice and I just doesn't connect. So I'm leaving it unsecured for now.

I am having the same exact problem. It is IPad's keeping the DHCP while in sleep mode. If you cold boot the IPad, the problem stops... albeit until you let it go into sleep mode again. As far as security (WEP?WPA, etc.) with the ICrap err.. Ipad, forget it. Your best best is to disable SSID broadcast and use ICrap's wireless to type in your SSID using a decent password type name for your SSID.

Hmm. Make sure you're typing the right password; you might want to change it on the router, then try it on the Apple device? Did you set your router to a "closed network" setting, i.e. without the name of the network you can't connect at all? If not, maybe you have your router restricted so that only approved devices can connect. If none of these appear to be the cause of the problem, unplug the router, plug it back in, and reboot your Apple device. If that doesn't help, I would talk to linksys.

Random wi-fi dropping


Go to the linksys website, see if they have a firmware flash for the router, that may help in some connectivity issues. You may also find that the ipad/iphone may drop connections when battery levels are low

Can not connect ipad to router


If your Linksys wireless router is already setup with a wireless network, do the following to connect the ipad to the network:

Tap the Settings icon on the home screen of the iPad. Go to General, then Wifi. Once in the wifi section, you should see available wireless networks. Choose the network that is setup on the Linksys and connect to it. Enter the password if you have one set on the wireless network and tap join.

If your linksys is not setup with a wireless network, consult the manual for it to configure it properly.

I'm trying to connect a new iPad to our home wireless network. The network key for the Linksys WRT5-4G router that always works on every other computer does not work with the iPad. What steps do I need to...


  1. From the iPad's Homescreen, tap Settings. (This assumes you didn't rearrange your apps. If you did, find the Settings icon wherever you put it.)
  2. In the Settings screen, tap Network.
  3. To start the iPad scanning for available wireless networks, tap the WiFi button and then slide the slider to "on". In a few seconds, you'll see a list of all the networks near you, whether they're public or private (if you don't see the list, there may not be any within range).
  4. The list of WiFi networks you'll see will include two kinds: public and private. Private networks have a lock icon next to them; Public don't. The bars next to each network indicate the strength of the connection - more bars means a faster connection.

    To connect to a public network, just tap the network name and you'll be online.

  5. If you want to access a private network, you'll need a password. Assuming you've got the password, tap the network name and enter it the password. Then tap the "join" button at the bottom right of the screen. If your password is correct, you'll connect to the network and be surfing the web. If not, try entering it again (assuming you've got the right one, of course).
  6. Advanced users can click the arrow to the right of the network to access more technical configuration settings. Everyday users probably won't need to look at these options.

My linksys router will now allow my Ipad to connect. The ipad does connect to other routers execept mine


usually with the IPAD. You need to put the correct settings into the wireless connection settings.
You wll need your SSID (the name your router shows up as when you search for wireless connections)
Your security type ( WEP or WPA/WPA2)
your wifi password.
I have connected many IPADS, as long as you have the correct details it should work
Are you setting the correct security type?

My iphone 3gs cannot connect to wifi network at home. i am using linksys wrt100 wireless router.


A wireless client has to support WPS ( wi-fi protected service) function in order to use to add the client to your WPS enabled Wireless Router. check the iphone user manual of your wireless client to see whether it supports the WPS function. If your wireless client does not support the WPS function, you have to configure your wireless client manually so it has the same SSID and wireless security settings, you could also go into the advanced wireless settings and enable WPS ( push and connect ) if your router has this option this is sort of specifically for things like mobile/cellular phones and ipods...hope this helps please vote thanks

My N1 vison keep losing on wireless connection when i used 2-3 wireless devices in same time. My connection is wired to my Desktop PC & wirelessly to 1 laptop, 1 iPhone and newly 1 iPad. I noticed that...


If you have a 3G phone in the house, It operates at the same frequency and is a nono.

If not I would suggest you completley rest modem and re-enter U/N, P/W etc and set up secure network also. If still a problem, maybe faulty modem.
