Re: Linksys wrt54gs Set up
Are you sure what is configuration you do is correct . i mean that your isp details and all those thing. if you using the wired then you have to put the cable of isp in the wan port and other to the lan port. and see the proxy server is there or not if there then leave it. and which type of connection you using static ip,dynamic ip, or pppoe connection in that also you have know it.
if you using the wireless then go and disable the proxey server and give the right configuration..

Sure you can if your router has multiple ports (Ethernet). So let say you need a connection in the 2nd level then buy the length of cable and connect teach end to the PC and the modem.
Another option is to buy a WiFi extender.
Here are some samples: WiFi Range Extenders
Make sure your cable/DSL cable from your wall outlet is plugged into the "Internet" port on your router, and a cable from one of the 4-ports is plugged into the network card on your PC. Then, open your browser and type in the IP address of the router (default is 192.168.1.1). The Linksys menu should appear, and you can begin to configure it from there.
Yes, you really need a password for that (either WEP or WPA). You can ask for the password to the one who configured the router. They placed a password for security reasons. In order not all people can access net, only those who knew the password.
If you want to set the router to work only as a switch with wireless access point, you may need to get into its setup page and adjust some settings.
Using a computer that is wired directly to one of the router's Ethernet ports, launch IE and type 192.168.1.1. It is the default IP address of the router. Then it will open a window, asking for a username and password. By default, there is no username and the password is admin.
Once you're in the router's User Interface, look for a sub tab called "Advanced Routing" under the main tab SETUP. Then set router mode to "Router" instead of Gateway. In some router's, the choice there is NAT enable or disable. If it is the one showing there instead of Router mode, then set NAT to disable. Click Save settings which is located at the bottom portion of the screen.
Then click on "Basic Setup" and then disable DHCP server. Save the settings then.
Then your modem now will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router.
1. Unplug your cable/dsl modem. 2. Unplug your Router 3. Plug in your modem ... wait for it to come completely up. 4. Plug in your WRT54G Router and wait for it to come up. 5. Go to your 1st PC and get into Command Prompt. Type is ipconfig /release .... then type ipconfig /renew 6. Check for internet connectivity. Repeat step 5 for for your second PC.
If your second PC is wireless go into the wireless config utility and search for access points. Connect to your Access point and check for connectivity.
If you still have no internet. Press the reset button on the back of the router for 45 seconds while it is powered on. Repeat steps 5 and 6.
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.
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.
There is no driver needed to connect to that router. They may be some stuff in the router setup that needs to be changed. You access that using any web browser by following the instructions appropriate to your situation here... http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_alp.php?p_sid=CgAIzuYi&p_lva=3687&p_li=&p_accessibility=0&p_page=1&p_cv=&p_pv=2.19&p_prods=1%2C19&p_cats=0&p_hidden_prods=&prod_lvl1=1&prod_lvl2=19&prod_lvl3=0&cat_lvl1=0&p_scf_lang=1&p_search_text=&p_new_search=1
