No, you don't have to keep the linksys router ON if you are not doing anything over the internet.But if you are downloading any file on the internet while you are away ,it needs to be ON.

All devices which requires internet to work and are connected with Linksys will not work as soon as you turn it oFF.
Linksys =OFF
Internet=OFF

First, try shutting down each device, wait 20 seconds and try again. If it was working with this configuration, it should continue to work.

Second, I always suggest that in Device Manager, all network cards, wireless cards, and/or USB hubs have the properties changed to NOT "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". If the computer turns off the device, some device stay off.. it might be possible to goad them into restarting, but I wouldn't want to do that repeatedly.

Where do find my security key to connect to the internet..I,m trying to set up a new computer..Thanks


If you have access to a wireless computer that is already connected to and operating on your network, then you should go here and download this utility http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=Im-88880-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en
and then run it. Once it fully scans, click on Show Advanced Tools in the bottom left of the window and select Retrieve WPA/WEP Key, it will be on the right side.

If you do NOT have a wireless computer available, then you need to loginto your router (sorry, but I do not know which router you have) and go to the wireless page. If you have WEP, just copy down the WEP key that has the radial button selected (green dot) and that is your key. If you have WPA, copy the Preshared key.

If you do not know how to get to your router setup, go to a computer that is conencted to your router by a LAN cord. Go to Start > Run and in the Run window type CMD. If you have Vista or Win 7, go to the Start Orb and just type CMD into the serch bar. In the command prompt window type IPCONFIG /ALL now look for Default Gateway (that's your router) and copy down the IP Address.
Now open a web browser utility and type that IP Address into the address bar.

I'm trying to configure add my dell dimension 3000 to a netgear wireless router via a linksys devise. This would be adding a 2nd computer to the wireless router. I know the password. I'm getting a error...


Do You have an association button on Your router? If so, the firstly press the button and then try to connect. If not, You must enter IP address of Your computer, like 192.168.0.5 Subnet mask, like 255.255.255.0 IP address of router, like 192.168.0.1 Then, most important - default gateway. If You have another computer connected at the same router, run cmd, then ipconfig in the black MS DOS window that appears after cdm command. Here You can see all parameters of Your TCP/IP configuration. Take a note of the default gateway and put it to TCP/IP settings of Your Linksys device. If it not help, drop me a message.

Have a linksys wireless-n gigabit router and cannot get it to wireless for my laptop


Go into the admin of the router by typing into http://192.168.0.1 (If thats what the gateway is assigned). Use your user id and passsword and go to the wireless settings. If you notebook computer doesn't have a wireless N adaptor, set it for mixed signal. That way you can use it on g adaptors. If it tests fine, then setup your security and/or mac filtering.

I have forgotte the code to enable my laptop to go wireless with your adsl 2 gateway router could you please help?


you should be able to log on to the router itself (using a cable connection) using the IP address of the router (currently your gateway IP) you should then be able to check / reset your wireless passcodes to get online wirelessly

I have a ZyXEL P-660HW-TI ADSL wireless router used as the gateway and wireless AP (also the wired ports are used for LAN). It has no VoIP ports. I do have a 2nd ADSL router (not used: no wireless, 1 LAN...


No because the VOIP need to be loged in first. if you have the voip first then the wireless router and you turned off the router dchp section part of the wireless modem then perhaps it will work, plus you need a voip account.

Hi i have the linksys model wub54g router an adapter i would like to put a password on t stop other uses on my internet


U don't need a password. U need to set U'r router to a secure mode, not open ended. use WEP or other (64 bit or 128 bit) encryption. linksys allows U to select a paraphrase, example: "Love2Air" and it will generate a code, i.e. "7D23C678867". This will allow others to see that there is a wireless system, but they have to have the code to use it. U will have to have the code in your other wireless pc's in order to use the system. U can also tell the router what MAC address' (pc address') to allow or disallow to use the system.
A password is used to keep others out of U'r routers setup and changing U'r code or paraphrase. If U'r system gets highjacked, there is a reset on the router and everything will revert to the book defaults. Don't loose the book.

I cannot set up my Linksys wireless router model number:WRT54GS to work properly. I have a desktop computer with Windows XP operating sysyem. I have three other laptop computers with wireless components


Hi,

The easiest would be to connect your desktop straight to your modem and verify that you can connect to the Internet. Do not use the LinkSys WRT54GS yet. Pop in the CD that came with the WiFi Router and run the setup wizard. Follow exactly on screen instructions. Verify that your desktop's networking is set to auto obtain IP address.

Alternately, you can try:
1. connect your desktop with a straight through LAN cable to Ethernet Port #1 of the WRT54GS;
2. set your desktop to use IP-192.168.1.10, Subnet Mask-255.255.255.0, Default Gateway-192.168.1.1;
3. open a browser and goto 192.168.1.1. use the LinkSys supplied username and password;
4. verify/configure/set the LinkSys to your preference;
5. for the time being do not use any security keyphrase, WEP WPA or MAC filter;
6. verify that your laptops could see the router's SSID;
7. verify that all laptops are set to auto obtain IP addresses;

If for some reason neither method will not work, pls post back with your modem's make & model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
