Question about Computers & Internet

I just bought a Linksys router WRT150N this evening. I have a Dell router that is problematic. My modem and existing router are on one side of the house , my Dell desktop on the other with "no" hard wire connection. Is it possible to use this Linksys router without a hardwire connection between my modem and desktop.

If you have an extra PCI slot on your PC, you can purchase a wireless card for it, and it is fairly simple to install. You can also purchase USB based wireless adapters for your desktop. This also assumes that the router and the PC are not too far apart, but as long as you could get a signal using say a laptop, you should also be able to get it using the PCI or USB adapter.

Good Luck,

James

You can try to reset your router
Reset the Linksys WRT150N wireless home router if you are experiencing connection issues or have forgotten your customized router login information. Resetting the Linksys WRT150N will erase your Internet connection settings, wireless security preferences and all other personal settings from the router. This procedure will restore the WRT150N back to its factory state.
Instructions
1 Locate the "Reset" button on the back panel of the router. The button is situated to the right of the Ethernet ports and to the left of the power port.
2 Press and hold the "Reset" button.
3 Release the "Reset" button after approximately five seconds. The device resets

Tips & Warnings
Use the Linksys WRT150N setup CD-ROM to run the setup wizard and reconfigure the router after the reset.

Linksys wireless N WRT150N Router showing limited or not connectivity


Hi.

If you have a cable modem or DSL modem, try to unplug power on it and your router too. Then plug the power back to the modem and wait until you see almost all the lights on. If your unsure just wait about 1 min and it should be ok. Next plug power back to your router. This will create an new IP address which could resolve your problem.

I have a Linksys WRT150N router and want to hook my Sierra wireless modem into it. Is there an adapter the will go from the internet connection to a USB connection?


Yes they exist, search for "USB to RJ45 adapter". Should be below £20

Don't know if it'll do what you want, but I can't think of a reason it wouldn't.

Reset the router for 30 seconds. Then power cycle the router and modem.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.

My linksys WRT150N router won't recieve internet signal from my dsl modem. The router sends out a signal to my lap top, but no internet connection can be made.


Try connecting your laptop directly to the dsl modem to make sure that it is working correctly.
If the dsl modem is working correctly then:
1. Turn off the power on the router and dsl modem.
2. After about 2 minutes, turn on the dsl modem.
3. Wait another 2 minutes, then turn on the router.

Occasionally you need to do this to get them back in synch. If this doesn't work you may need to use the software utility to reconfigure the router.
