With Linksys game adapter there's no power switch on it when you plug it to a power outlet if adapter is working the light should come on.

You can follow these troubleshooting to determine if adapter is really bad or something else.

Make sure that the power adapter that you are using came with the wireless gaming adapter.
Power adapter is connected properly to the back of the adapter and the electrical outlet.
Electrical outlet is preferably a surge protector.
Try another electrical outlet.
Unplug and replug the power adapter.
Hold the reset button for a minute, while the adapter is connected to the electrical outlet.
If there is still no power light then it is possible that the adapter is defective, and have it replace if still under warranty.

Web based utility for linksys WGA54G wont open


My guess would be that the game adapter does not provide dhcp service.
Knowing that its default IP is 192.168.1.250, you have to set a manual IP to your machine in the same subnet, say 192.168.1.1 with default subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and leave remaining fields empty.
once done, you may be able to access its web based utility now.

hope this helps

I used to have a linksys router but now have a Apple Time Machine. When I power up my WGA54G all i get is the power light. When I connect my WGA54G to the Time Machine, only the ethernet and power are lit....


Well, I'm not quite sure what your asking, exactly, but I'll try,

What are you wanting to connect the 'WGA to?

--"I used to have a linksys router but now have a Apple Time Machine."--
The Apple "Time Machine" is the backup "software" that controls the "Time CAPSULE'S" Hard Drive so I'll take it you mean the Time Capsule. The Time Capsule is already wireless.

The Time Capsule is just a wireless router with a Hard Drive in it. You should have set the Time Capsule up the same way you did the Linksys router. The Time Machine software on your computer can now access the Hard Drive for backup purposes.

"Time Capsule" connects to the '"WGA" wirelessly
'"WGA" is connected to a"Game system" (or network ready non-wireless product) via the Ethernet cable.

-"When I connect my WGA54G to the Time Machine,"-
OK,,,,,,, After looking at the manual on-line I think I know what happened, I believe the Manual is wrong! The "NOTE" mentioned to hook it to the Router first but how the heck are you suppose to access it from there? You CAN'T!
I think they had a "Brain Fade" and meant to hook it to the computer.

Hook the 'WGA to the Mac Book Pro and you should be able to access it now. You might want to make sure the MBP's Network connection LOCATION is set to AUTO to make sure it connects OK.

Make sure the switch on the side of the 'WGA is set to - infra- and not -ad-hoc-.

Hook an Ethernet cable to the computer then hook the other end to the 'WGA then plug the power cord into the WGA to turn it on and then try the Ip # it said to use in a web browser. If it then shows the log-in screen then enter them in like the manual said.

According to the manual if you can't access the 'WGA via the IP #192.168.1.250 then it some how got changed and you will have to reset it like the manual say's.

I hope I understood you OK, Good luck....

Linksys WGA54G ver.1 cannot find


Hi,

Try to use the game adapter as your wireless adapter to test if it is still working. Connect the game adapter to your PC and then configure it manually. Assign a static IP address on your PC same range as your game adapter and then configure the wireless settings same as your router. the Default IP address of the game adapter is 192.168.1..250.
