Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

It has stopped connecting to the Internet. The cable modem and computer are fine, but the cable modem and the linksys no longer "talk" to each other. Other wireless connections in my vicinity work OK on my computer (my neighbor's). I've followed online instructions for resetting the router, to no avail.

    I have done all of the above, except that previously I was instructed to change the ip address to ....2.1 after the MAC clone step.



    It made no difference. What next?



    Thanks.

Base from the description of your problem it seems that we need to reconfigure the router to work with your modem again and we need to do that manually using a computer connected wired to the router.

To do that follow these steps.

Connect the modem to the router and computer to router also, make sure all connections are correct.
Then power on the router , modem and computer and check all the lights on the router are fine and make sure power is solid green if those are fine access the router setup page.

From the computer that is wired to the router a\open internet explorer and type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter then that should ask for a username and password, just leave the user name blank and password is admin hit enter you should be now on the router page.

From there under SETUP tab look for a sub tab MAC ADDRESS CLONE , then enable that and clcik on clone pc mac and ten save settings and once its save power off the router and modem for 1 minute then after that power on the modem and then the router and check if internet is already working.

Each network adapter (in the Linksys router, or in your computer) has a unique 12-character code. Some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will require you to "register" this 'MAC' (Media Acquisition Control) address, before they grant an IP-address to the device (router or computer). So, when you "bypass" the router, you're showing a different MAC-address to the ISP, and they are not allowing that MAC-address to get connected. Talk to your ISP.

Or, some cable-modems check the MAC-address, allowing just one or two computers to connect. Turn the cable-modem off, to make it "forget" the MAC-addresses that have connected to it.
Connect the router to the cable-modem.
Turn the modem on.
Turn the router on.
Connect your computer to the router.
Restart your computer.

Or, maybe the router really is "dead'; try the above, before choosing this option, and before buying a new router.

Good day,
The AT&T modem(Motorola), is actually a modem and a single port router.
To work with the Linksys it must be set up in bridge mode. Then let the router make the decisions.
AT&T tech support will usually not help you if the router is not there product.
On Google, there are many sites that will help with this issue.
Unless you've already done it, you should contact AT&T by phone and request tech support on setting up your modem. They will talk you thru the whole setup, including testing but without the router.
Then proceed with the steps thru Google.
I do not know the settings for your specific router, but the forums will usually help.
I assume you're on DSL. Make sure they know that. Cable settings are different.

Hello,

Do this with your network setup. Power down your DSL/Cable modem first by unplugging the power. Power down the router next by unplugging the power. Power off your computer also. Now , power up the dsl/cable modem and let it resync with the ISP ...all lights green and showing activity. Next power up the Linksys router and then do a factor restore reset by pushing in the reset and holding it for a count of 5 (the front lights will go red then flash) let go of the reset as your linksys router is all set to default setttings from the factory. Now power up your computer and try the internet after it boots up. Should hook to the internet with no problems now. Now access your router menu by typing http://192.168.1.1 and hit enter. The router log in menu should now display. just click on the password tab and enter admin the default password and then change your password in the router to something hard to remember and WRITE IT DOWN! There is also great help from linksys web site on networking your home. Good luck,

I went from a ATT dsl modem to a net gear modem and i cannot get the net ger mode and linksys mode to talk to the computer


Most DSL providers use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections for end-users. To set up a Linksys router, you need to enable PPPoE on the router’s web-based setup page.
To setup a Linksys router with a DSL connection you need to perform four steps:
  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting the Devices Together
  3. Checking the LEDs
  4. Setting-up a DSL ISP on a Linksys Router
Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If not, contact your Internet Service Provider.

Why does this keep happening??? Please advise...


Your modem is set to only allow one main IP address, which it assigned to your laptop.

Connect the cables through the router, then unplug first the modem, then the router.

Wait 45 seconds, then plug in router, wait 5 seconds, then plug in modem.

Give it a few seconds to talk to everything, and you should be good to go.
