Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

My Linksys router went off, and when I tried to reset it, it reverted to the general linksys name on the wireless networks but I still can*t connect to the internet wirelessly, only if I use a direct cable from computer to my modem. Is the linksys router fritzed or is there a way to resolve this fast?

If you have power and you can connect via Ethernet cord no the router is ok.
You will need to set the wireless settings correctly in the router setup page.

instruction set here:
1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router

Are you trying to secure the wireless network?
For this you will need to access the router setup page and change the settings manually.
See how to secure wireless network.

If you are not able to save the settings then I will suggest you to upgrade the firmware of your router. The reset the Linksys router and reconfigure it manually.
Create a new wireless network. Change the name of the wireless network that you never used before.
Then try to connect to the new wireless network.

Tip

Wireless Network Password - Linksys


If you are unable to connect your laptop wireless to your Linksys wireless access point/router, the easiest and fastest way to get going is to reset your router to the factory defaults. This will make your router work like the day you bought it.

There are 2 steps involved Reset your router, Setup/Secure a new router

Reset your router:

First
  • Unplug your DSL/Cable modem from power (not your access point/router) Leave this unplugged for now


Second
  • On the rear of your Linksys router you will find a small RESET button
  • With the power still on the router, Press and hold (with a pin/pen tip) the RESET button for 30 seconds.
  • Release the RESET button a wait 15 seconds for the router to reboot


almost done....
  • Unplug your Linksys router from power
  • Plug your DSL/Cable modem back in to power
  • Wait 1 minute for the modem to boot up
  • Be sure the ethernet (cat5) cable from your modem is securely plugged into the WAN port on the back of your Linksys router. This is usually labeled WAN or Internet above the jack
  • Plug your Linksys router back into power.


You will now be able to connect to the internet with your wireless device. I would advise that you follow the next steps in securing your wireless network.

Setup/Secure a new router

Log into your router
  • Type 192.168.1.1 into your web browser and hit enter
  • In the login fields (case sensitive):
  • Username: leave_this_blank
  • Password: admin
  • Click OK


Once in the web interface for your router
  • Click Wireless tab - Basic Wireless Settings
  • Find the Wireless Network Name (SSID) field
  • change this to your new network name (this is the name you will see when you connect through your wireless device)
  • Find the Wireless Channel field
  • Change this from 6 (default) to 1 or 11

Our access point linksys model wrt350nver2 doesnt connect with our loptops


Make sure that you have all the correct wireless settings of your network.
You can also try creating a new wireless network and then connect to the new wireless network.
Connect the computer to the router and open the setup page. Change the wireless network name and then connect to the new wireless network on your laptop.

If that is also not working then you can try to reset linksys router and reconfigure it.

Wireless connection


Possible you did reset the router. Its okay to connect to that linksys network name. But if you want to customize you network name.

MAKE SURE TO USE THE WIRED COMPUTER TO SETUP WIRELESS CONNECTION.
Example : The Desktop computer that is connected to directly to router.


Just follow the steps.

Lost Password to router


Hold the reset button on the router for 30 second, do not let go of it after the diag LED turns off, continue holding it until 30 seconds have passed. After you?ve done this, the router will revert to factory defaults, all of your settings will be lost. By default the default Password for the router is admin, and there is no User Name.
