Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I have a Linksys wireless-G 2.4GHz Broadband router model WRT54GL. when I connect it to the power source, the power LED blinks, Ethernet LEDs 1 to 4 and Internet LED goes on without any connection to them, even when I connect the internet cable it doesn't show a sign of connection and I cannot find the wireless router from my systems enen the ethernet cable doesn't connect my systems. I tried using the reset buttom but it doesn't work the LED are still on without a connection and the power LED blinks, the CISCO Systems light doesn't work.
How do I solve this?
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.
