Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Having a big problem with my wireless router

I have an apple laptop and for me to connect to my wireless connection Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G i need a password to get in. Somehow the password i have been using for a year has not been working anymore. I tried to call linksys, but they want me to pay them $30 to reset my password. I have already paid them $30 two months ago and I do not want to pay them again. Is there anyway for me to reset my password by myself? My modem seems working, but every-time i tried to connect, gives me error!!!
Thank you very much for any help available,,,

Easy fix here.

  1. Turn your modem off
  2. Look for the reset button on the router (If memory serves, its on the back I think)
  3. Hold the reset button in for 30 seconds or more
  4. This will reboot the modem, wiping out any previous settings, including passwords
  5. Turn your modem back on and access the web based user interface
  6. If prompted for username password try the default passwords
  7. User: admin Password: admin OR
  8. User: (LEAVE BLANK) Password: admin
Voila :0) x

Limited connectivity
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and then click Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.
Also try resetting the wireless router by turning off the power to the wireless router for a few minutes and the boot up your computers.

To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

Lost wireless router CD


You can make the router working even without using the CD. Who is your ISP? Are you having concern with wired or wireless connection?

Loss of Connectivity


Libog1 - did you install any additional wireless software to connect to the router (Linksys software) or are you just allowing Vista to connect directly using Windows' built-in wireless management?

Compatibility between linksys WRT54G Router and Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Driver


from what you say, it sounds as if you have your wired and wireless card connected at the same time. This will confuse the router as it is trying to give two different ip addresses to the one pc, which it cannot do. If you are using the wireless adapter, make sure you dissable the wired adapter as the router will continually look for the wired ip address while allocating your wireless adapter causing instability. Next ensure you have a good clear signal from router to notebook as this can obviously cause problems. Lastly ensure that the wireless cards TCP/IP properties are set to obtain ip address automatically, especially if your router is DHCP enabled to allocate ip addresses automatically.
