Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My WRT54G router will not connect me to internet wirelessly. If I press the Cisco Systems button to the left of the control panel, a wireless signal is created and I can get online, but after approx. 2 minutes the connection breaks. The normal color of the Cisco System button is a steady, bright yellow, but after pressing the button, the color changes to a flickering dull yellow.

I want to disable the wireless signal from the hours of 12:05am-6:00am. I have one computer physically connected to the router, and 2 xbox 360's and one laptop using the wireless signal.


Hi, you can set up an Internet access policy through the router that will block Internet access for specific computers. The Internet Access Policy screen can be found in the router's configuration software, under Access Restrictions and then Internet Access. You can choose time ranges to block and specific computers or devices for it to apply to.
If you don't have the user guide that came with your WRT54G router, you can download a free PDF version of it here:

My wrt54g router keeps on blinking it all started when i pressed on the cisco systems logo because the light was orange so i pressed it and it turned off and the power led started blinking and the wlan led...


The first step that we need to do here is to hard reset the router. At the back panel near the power, you can see the reset button... we need to press and hold it for about a minute..

(If the power light continuously blinking, we need to follow this step):
Step1: On the computer connected wired via the router, let's force card and set static IP on the computer.
(for windows XP)
> Go to control panel -- network connections -- right click local area connection and we can see properties. Click properties and let's go to configure. On that configure button, we now see advanced tab. Click advanced tab and choose link speed or duplex and value will be 10 MBPS half and click Ok.
> Right click again local area connection and click properties
> Highlight internet protocol tcp ip and go to properties. Once properties is open choose use the following IP address...
Please set IP to 192.168.1.5 / Subnet : 255.255.255.0 / Default gateway: 192.168.1.1
> After assigning the static IP please go to start - run - type cmd. On the blinking cursor type there ping(space)192.168.1.1 and press enter. If we are getting Request Timed Out, sad thing router is already defective. But if we are getting "Reply from...' then we need to update the firmware.


(After hard reset and router power light stays solid then we needs to reset up the router)

2.4GHz Wireless Lan And 5 GHz Wireless LAN


this is usually caused by your router and your wireless network card are not compatible... you need to purchase as well cisco wireless network card adn tehn when you press your wireless security on the router, it will automatically apply all security protocol to the connection.

if you do not want to purchase new card, you always can setup these devices manually,

connect to the router via rj45 cable, establish what protocol, security and transmission method/frequency you will be using, write that down, disconnect the cable, enter your wireless network card settings and apply same settings to your network card, this should solve the problem.

as you did not stated what operating system you are using and what card is in your computer, this is unfortunately best advice which can be given.

how to set up your router, you have downloadable pdf file on linksys site.

I just installed LinksysCisco wireless router and clicked parental control by mistake. How do I undo this feature.


To disable the parental control you will have to reset the router.
Press and hold (for 15 seconds) the reset button (use a pen or paperclip) on the back of the router.
You will have to reinstall the Cisco-Connect software next.
Then do a normal set-up.

Cannot connect wirelessly


You need to setup cisco page, with your ISP. Your setup name and password must be same for all computers. All computers for this installation must connected by wire at the beginning. And make sure you enable the wireless options on Linksys page. READ HELP form Linksys main page.

Wireless router not connecting


Be sure that your Modem plugs into the WAN port on the router.

1. Unplug your cable/dsl modem power
2. Unplug your Router power
3. Plug in your modem power ... wait for it to come completely up.
4. Plug in your WRT54G Router and wait for it to come up.

Press the reset button on the back of the router for 45 seconds while it is powered on. This will do a factory reset. Wait for it to come up. Then unplug it. Wait 30 seconds and plug it back in. Let it come all the way up.

Plug a PC into one of the switch ports on the router.
Now do an ipconfig /release and ipconfig /refresh in the command prompt of your PC to get an IP address from your Router.

Now you should be able to ping 192.168.0.1 and you should be able to get into the the configuration utility by putting http://192.168.0.1 in a browser. The username should be blank and the password will most likely be admin (all lower case).

Be sure to lock down your wireless SSID so neighbors and people passing by are unable to connect to your access point and do bad things on your network.

Cannot get online with Wireless G WRT54G router. Can get online by pressing Cisco Systems button but only temporarily.


Do U see the router signal on the wireless network connection search?
Sometimes the linksys systems cd does not want to work on some pc's. try using the control panel - add/remove programs and uninstall all programs for the linksys. Then goto the control panel - system - hardware and uninstall the linksys card. Leave the actual card installed and reboot. After it detects your card use the linksys cd to load only the driver.
In the properties of the wireless connection, let windows manage it.
The above is based upon the factory defaults of the router. Any keys to access the router would have to be used on the pc.
