Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

Open Question

After a power outage, my linksys router won't connect to the internet. The router is on, the three lights on the right side are one, my computer connects to the router but can not connect to the internet. I tried unplugging and reset the router but now it just connects to "linksys" and still can not connect to the internet.

SOURCE: Linksys Wireless-G not connecting to internet

Make sure you are plugging the SMC into the WAN port on the Linksys router and not the LAN ports.  Your internet connection (which is your SMC) should always plug into your WAN port on the Linksys.  Any computers that you may need to plug in, like Desktops that are "wired" and not "wireless", should plug into the LAN ports on the Linksys.  If you are not using the WAN port on the Linksys for your SMC modem, then that would explain why you cannot get to the internet on wireless or wired computers.
Here's why you are getting the "low connectivity" message:

Computers don't understand why the Internet is connecting or not connecting...so the "low connectivity" message you keep receiving has nothing to do with your wireless signal strength.   To a computer NIC, "low connectivity" means your network adapter could not find a DHCP server and receive a valid IP address.  When this happens, your network adapter assigns an IP address to your computer in the following range...169.254.0.0, and will display the "low connectivity" message until it is able to receive a valid private IP address from the DHCP server.  You can verify this by going to START | RUN and typing "cmd" (without the quotes), then hit ENTER.  A black box will pop up....then type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER.  This will show you your IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address, and you can verify that your IP address is in the 169.254.0.0 range.  A valid private IP address is typically in the 192.168.0.0 range, but could also be in the 10.0.0.0 range, or the 172.16.31.0 range.    Also, make sure you have DHCP server enabled on the Linksys router for the LAN.  This will ensure your "wired" and "wireless" computers receive a valid IP address.  
The WAN port on your Linksys router should be configured to "Obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP".

Cheers!

Power off all of your network devices, including modem, router, and computers. Then power on each device in the following order:

  1. Cable or DSL modem
  2. Router
  3. Computer
Wait for about 1 minute between each step, do each device has the chance to fully power up. This will reset the connection from your modem to your router and force the router to refresh it's settings. Please let me know if fixed your problem.

Only one ethernet port works


http://support.linksys.com/en-us/support/routers/E3000
Download the newest firmware for that router (be sure to get the right version number, this is VERY important) and see if that helps. if it doesn't help, It sounds like you have a router that is going bad.

Power outage unable to connect wirelessly e1000


Make sure power is back up. Check both ISP modem and router indicator lights are normal. Test ISP connection with cable. If all is still OK then use the reset button in the back of the router.

FYI - ISP modem might also have a reset. I had to this for TV even though everything said OK.

As last resort you might want to use a JTAG cable and debricking programming software. If your router is brikced or you want to change the firmware this cable can do it. The cable will connect to your parallel port and your wireless router so you can repair your router. They are about $5.95.

After power outage I Can't connect without bypassing router


If you can connect directly then, the problem is the wrt54g router. Possible problems:
1) Power Outage damaged the router
2) Power Outage reseted the router

For the second scenario, you should got to the browser and type: http://192.168.1.1/ and check whether you can enter or not. If not, you need to configure the gateway IP on your PC to 192.168.1.1

Router trouble


the way you describe your router's status, it looks like its starting to go out on you, or its gone out. the ports on the router should have the same activity when you plug a computer to it. there is a possibility that the chipsets of the router inside got fried during the outage and the pwoer surge. sometimes surge protectors are not enough, you have to have a UPS to protect the devices. if in case it is best that you contact the macnufacturer of your router or your ISP so that they will be able to transfer you to the right line.

you may also want to consult your devoce's warranty status.
