On the router I have all the necessary lights lit. All online help is useless due to no internet service when on-line help has me connect the Ethernet cable back to the router and router to the computer.

In short the signal seems to stop in the router.

I would start by upgrading the firmware on the router... even if its the same version just do it again something in the software could be corrupt. Now make sure your getting the firmware for the exact router model #. After upgrade before you plug the router in reset the modem... then re-run the wireless network wizard. Do all of this and let me know if your wireless works now and we'll move to the next step.

Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.


connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
good luck!!

I plug my router into my modem and it just doesn't want to work with me. Everything was working fine, and then last night my connection gradually got worse until I lost the Internet. I plugged my computer...


There must be a small reset button on your router. Hold it down for 30 seconds. Release it. wait for one minute. Now unplug the power and plug it back in. Wait for 1 minute.
Once you reset the router, it will come back to factory default settings.
You will need to reconfigure the router form the start according to your Internet service provider.

I have a linksys wireless g router that worked fine until yesterday. Now it won't connect to the internet. I have a desktop wired to the router and a laptop used wireless.


Check if you can connect to the internet when hooked directly to the modem. If your connection works fine through the modem, then your router needs to be reconfigured.

With the signs that you have describe about your router, this is a clear signs that the router is already bad the hardware itself and better have it replace if still under warranty if not you need to go get a new one sorry about that router is dead already.

When i connect my wrt54g router i cant get on the internet on my pc.i get signal on a laptop and cant get on the internet on it also. please help


from within the router make sure that dhcp is enabled you should release and renew this on the router.

also make sure you restart your modem and router in this order:

power off router
power off modem
wait 1 minute
power on modem (wait until it is fully booted up)
power up router -

If wireless is still not allowing internet traffic to flow - then connect laptop to the router with a cable and see if your on the internet - if so then you will need to adjust your wifi on the router.

let me know - we can take it from there.

Can connect computer to internet through modem but not modem-router-computer. Everything worked fine until I accidently unplugged and reset the router the other day. My computer can connect to my wireless...


Use the reset button on the back panel of the router. You will need a pen or toothpick to press the reset button. Once you reset the router, then configure the router as if new.

The home phone service has not worked for one week.


Hi,
You can also type 192.168.0.1 into the internet URL address bar and it'll ask you for a username and password. If you haven't set one up, try 'admin' and 'password'. Then look for a menu listing like 'Diagnostics' or something. (The layout varies on different Router brands) Now click 'Reboot Router' and wait until it has completely finished and all the lights have stopped flashing and are remaining on.
Now try your Home phone.
If it still doesn't work, try replacing the microfilter thingy that separates the computer cable and the phone cable (Usually a spare is bundled with the router when you buy or receive one, look in the box that the router came in, if you still have it). Otherwise contact your internet service provider and get them to check the line, as sometimes the signal 'drops' for certain reasons..
Good Luck!

Router stopped working


Try first to reset it to the factoty settings by pressing the brown button on the back of the unit, next to the Internet connection. You will have to reprogram the router with your PPPoE settings, if any, and your wireless security.
