Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

My son installed this new router that I paid for just about a week ago. It is the Linksys and there are 4 computers including this one that is mine connectng to it. The router fails every few days and my son reinstalls it and it ususally works. But not this time - he tried to reinstall with the disk - it didn't work and then he left. So now I'm trying to fix it and I don't know what to do.

Hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router


you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

Router not connecting to internet modem


This is a tuff router.  I bought it myself hoping for good things, and spent a good two days actually getting the thing to work.

I got mine to work by plugging it into the modem, the laptop I was setting it up with, etc, and then running it all. I would just suggest trying to reinstall it again with everything plugged in from the get go, and then hope for the best.... sorry I cant help more.

Since you did not include your exact model number and type of internet provider I cannot give you more specific instructions. Although you can refer to the links below on how to set it up. If you require further assistance just reply to this and give me the model number of your ISP and the model of your router. Also answer this question " When you plug your computer to your modem do you get online automatically or do you need a username and password"

LinkSYS ADSL2 -AG241Modem + Router Ethernet


Hi,

First : check your cables if its plugged in securely on each each
port
Second: Try to change their ends
Third : Try to replace your Ethernet cable.

If your router is connected to a modem try to isolate the problem by connecting your router directly to your computer and check f light would turn on. IF YES then thers something wrong with your modem, check it out.

Hope those simple steps ive provided helped you in way, If not pls let me know and lets keep the ball rolling.

Cheers.

Router burnt out


If you reset both the computer and the router at exactly the same time it should work but if it doesn't you most likely need a new router. Hope this helped =)

I can't get my new Vista computer to connect to my wireless network


I experienced a similar problem with a Vista laptop a few weeks ago. There were no apparent problems, so I uninstalled the wireless network adapter from the Windows "device manager" and then let it automatically reinstall the wireless adapter when it rebooted. The local wireless network appeared about 5 minutes after the reboot and has been working ever since.

If that doesn't help, try removing the Linksys software from your computer and try the network adapter remove/reinstall again.
