The hard wired ports stopped working after resetting the router using the button on back of the router. Wireless connections work, but when the hard wired ports try to connect and acquire an address from the DHCP server on the router they fail to connect. I tried assigning the the addresses manually, but I still can not get to the internet or any other computer on the network. Does anyone have any thought?
Please dont assign any manual addresses in ur computer..let it be automatic...
u said that u connected the computer to Ethernet ports in the router... check whether the light are lit in the router corresponding to that particular port.. check the ip address to that particular computer(hard wired to the router) ip address should be 192.168.1.100 or 101 or 102..if the ip addres comes in this range means its working good... if ther is no ip means please follow this steps...

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.
Try 192.168.1.1. If that doesn't work then try connecting to the router hard wired using IE as your browser. Sometimes with some routers they can only be connected via an RJ 45 cable. Some routers like Linksys only like IE as the browser for accessing the router settings.
If you continue to have problems then reset your router. There is a tiny button recessed on the router back. Using a pen point hol the button in for 30 seconds and then try accessing the router.
Are you trying to connect wirelessly or vie Ethernet? If wireless, make certain you have the correct security key entered. If wired, try another port. Worst case scenario, hard reset the router by holding in the recessed button on the back of the router for one minute. This will cause all settings to be reverted back to factory default, however would allow you to reconfigure your router.
Double check your physical connection. It should be this way
Modem > connected to Internet Port of the router PC > connected to port 1 Laptop > can be wireless
Now you must power cycle your router and modem. Turn off router first then modem. Wait for 30 seconds. Power on modem first, then the router. You must configure the wireless settings on your laptop it doesn't connect automatically.
To isolate the problem beter connect your wireless router directly to the modem and configure it, check if you are able to go online properly so that you can figure out the problem if your wireless router is not working properly, try upgrading the latest firmware and reset the router and reconfigure the router and that will fix your problem...
To isolate the concern, it would be better to test the non working computer to the modem. If it works, that means there is a problem with the router and if it isn't then it is a problem with the pc..
If the computer works fine on the modem, you can try the following to check if the router works fine:
1. The modem should be connected to the router's WAN/Internet port.
2. The computers should be hard wired to the router's numbered port
3. On the router's setup page, go to the Status tab and check if the Internet IP address and the DNS are populated. If not, that means the router is not functioning correctly.
4. Go to the wireless tab and make sure that the SSID is customized. Make sure that the wireless computer is connecting to the said SSID.
If those had been checked and it still does not work, you can try updating the firmware of the router, reset and reconfigure it.
However, if the computer does not work on the modem. You may need to have it checked.
