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

I LOST MY Linksys WirelessG ADSL Home Gateway WAG200G Wireless router CD


Download the firmware from the Download tab after following the link. You should be able to find user guides and other help for your router there too. Downloading the firmware should allow you to use the router. The CD just contained that info.

My wireless is going on and off, what's the problem?


Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:

• Wireless interference within the network
• Wireless settings of the Linksys ADSL gateway are still set to default
• Firmware is corrupted
NOTE: Before going through the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
To resolve intermittent wireless connection, you need to perform the following steps:

i. Reducing Wireless Interference
ii. Customizing Wireless Settings of the ADSL Gateway

Linksys WAG200G doesn't have a green light with the internet.


Try unplugging the WAG200 ADSL Home Gateway, leave it off for a minute, then plug it back in. Sounds too simple, but it works more than half the time.

ADSL ISP provides same address for IP and Gateway


Can you manually change the WAN IP on the router?  If so, give it an IP like 123.12.167.5 and set the gateway address to 123.12.167.1.  If it asks for a subnet mask, give it 255.255.255.0.
If she has a Linksys router, you may need to change the operating "MODE" on it.  A lot of Linksys routers have 2 modes of operation---Router mode and Gateway mode.  For her configuration, make sure the Linksys is in Gateway mode.  This will fix the NAT problem.

Cheers!

Internet access problem with a Linksys 54g router


Try setting the default gateway on the laptop to the ip address of your ICS gateway machine. Some routers separate the wireless and LAN connections on different subnets.

Try comparing your laptops ip information with that of one of the working wired computers. You can do this by going to Start up to run and type cmd then click "ok"

At the black prompt screen type "ipconfig" without the "".

You want to compare the IP Address, Submet Mask, and Default Gateway.

If one has an ip of 192.168.1.* and the other has 192.168.0.* then the wireless and wired are on seperate networks.

If the subnet masks are something like 255.255.255.0 and 255.255.255.1 they are on seperate subnets. Both should be fixable by putting in the same default gateway.

For example if your ICS gateway is 192.168.1.1 then set that as the default gatway on the wireless laptop. This can be done by going to start >> Control Panel >> Network Connections then right click your wireless connection and goto properties then double click on the "Internet Protocol (tcp/ip)" option. This will list all of your ip information (if its static) if its dynamic (ip gotten from router) you can still click "Use the following DNS server address" and set preffered dns to the gateway ICS ip. Or click "Advanced" and click Add under Default Gateways and add the gateway ICS ip there.

LINKSYS WIRELESS - G WAG54GS


Diana, The router has lost its IP address from the ADSL gateway. Unplug the router from the wall for about a minute or two. Plug it back in..? If that doesn't work you need to login to your router and check the settings. or(there is a small reset button on the back of the router. Hold it in for 10 seconds the router will reset.) http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Content_C1&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1114037290855&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Content_C1&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1114037290855&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper If possible turn your computers off while resetting the connection. Some inter Microsoft networks will issue its own IP if it doesn't detect one. Good Luck, Tim
