Question about Linksys WRT54GC Compact Wireless-G Broadband Route Router (LSWRT54GC)

1 Answer

My WRT54GC router suddenly stop passing internet through it after 4 years of uninteruped service. But all the LED s are on as they should be. I can not get either wired (my desk top) or wireless (lap top) internet. There is wireless signal showing on my laptop. If I by-pass the router and go directly from the ADSL modem to desk top then I have internet. I tried Enabling MAC address clone. MY ISP doesn't seem to authenticate IP. I get a return error. Any idea? Should I go get a new router?

Has your modem been hard reset recently? if so, it may require that you bridge the modem out to work with the router- ESP. if you use Verizon DSL. If so, contact your ISP, and ask for assistance in bridging out the modem.

If you connect the router (WRT54GC) to your broadband modem does it then allow wireless action? Your router has an Internet address. It is 192.168.1.1, in all probability. Check your manual to be sure. Access to the control panel is through this address. You must log in to the router then set up the Wireless, the SSID (the name you give your network) and any security you set up. I prefer the WEP-PSK[TKIP] as it's easiest. Other things with the router, settings and such, pretty much are set automatically, so once security is set you should be good to go. Good luck !!!

For that you need to reset your router to factory defaults.
Then reconfigure fix this problem.
First RESET your router to defaults.
for that press RESET button for 10 seconds RESET button is in back side of router.
Then connect your router to computer with ethernet cable.
Then you can access it with following link.
http://192.168.1.1
or
http://192.168.0.1
type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Set WAN settings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP .
Click on wireless and enable wi fi.
If you want secure router then enable WEP security then add new code it is your password key for connect wi fi.
Also change channel type in wireless option 4,6 and 11 channel are best.
Try 1 by 1 then save settings and restart router.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks.

My Linksys WRT54GC suddenly stopped working. The router has no power light but the wireless and internet light are green.


Sounds like a PSU failure possibly.

If you can still get wired internet then its not dead. Its even possible the power LED is pooched if you can still use the wired connections.
