Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Laptop could not detect linksys on second day

I bought a new linksys WRT54G router. I have a Compaq Presario C750 laptop. the first day i hooked it up the wireless worked fine (bit slow here and there). today when i turned on my laptop the wireless could not detect the router?!

I checked the cables, the wireless button (could detect other networks around me), the router itself was working ok. I could not log onto www.192.168.1.1 to check my settings. I tried manually to set up the connection again, but did not work either....

can somebody help me?

Jatman,

Couple of things you can try here:

1) Connect your laptop (or another computer if possible) to the router using a network cable. You should then be able to see your configuration info. Make sure that the computer you are using to connect (wired) to the router is set up to use DHCP. Once in there, depending on what you find, you might be able to fix it yourself.

2) Factory reset the router and go through the setup options as if it were brand new.

Hope this helps.

Reset the router. There is a small reset button on the back of the router. Hold it in for 10 seconds and then the default login and password can be used.
The default user is blank, the default password is admin

Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router Issue Allows 1 Computer at a time


Your router my not be DCHP enabled or it might not be assigning the IP addresses either.

I would do a reset and start all over with your security settings and see if that works. Worst case scenario you could always turn security off when your parents or others are there.

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.

Linksys router problem


Try a factory reset on the router, in most cases this can be done by holding the reset button on the unit down for 10 or more seconds. Once this is done you may have to enter any settings into the router again.

Also, try download the latest firmware from http://www.linksys.com and upgrade the firmware on the router.

Loss of Connectivity


Libog1 - did you install any additional wireless software to connect to the router (Linksys software) or are you just allowing Vista to connect directly using Windows' built-in wireless management?
