Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)

Potential IP Address issue

I had the router set up on a computer that served as the network's access point, but now the computer won't connect to the internet (even if I plug it directly through the DSL router.) My best guess is that the IP address got changed around when I was altering the settings. Unfortunately, I can't seem to remember what it started out as. What are some potential ways to fix this?

Hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router and repeat the same steps.

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username (email address format) and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix and use supportcall as your promo code for 1 free technical support.

How do i connect my WG302 to my laptop using a console cable?


if Windows
go to dosprompt on p.c or start run cmd <press the enter key>
type in ipconfig <press the enter key>
was the ip address of the laptop 192.168.0.210 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 ?
note the ip address of the laptop and the subnet mask
If the ip address is not 192.168.0.210 then go into the network settings and set the laptop up with 192.168.0.210 and then make it a static ip address.
go to dosprompt on p.c or start run cmd <press the enter key>
type in ipconfig <press the enter key>
was the ip address of the laptop 192.168.0.210 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 ? (if not restart the laptop ) and check again
Next question how did you connect the wg302 directly to the laptop was it directly connected or was it through a network switch or network hub. Most likely the Cable router or DSL router has a DCHP server assigning different ip address lease range. You can either change the ip address of the access point device to one in the original current router lease range and assign it as static for the wireless access point device in the dchp lease table or assign the wireless access point with the second ip address as an example 10.0.0.2 and make sure the router dchp server allocates above 10.0.0.20 then temporarily connect router to laptop and temporily set laptop with 192.168.0.210 and then log into access point and change ip address to 10.0.0.2 for wireless access point device and turn off its dchp server. Then change laptop to use dhcp while connected into network hub or network switch with original router and restart laptop wired back into original normal network.

Im trying to set this up as an access point. but it will not fine a ip from the router


Most router wont act as a DHCP client (Get an IP address) on their own.

You need to go into the Belkin setup and set it to an IP address in the range of your other router.

For example:
If your PC is getting (connected to the same network) an IP address of 192.168.0.3 IP and a Default Gateway address of 192.168.0.1 you can set the Belkin with any adderss between 192.168.0.10 & 192.168.0.254. Changing the last octet (set of numbers after the 3rd period) to the desired address.

Need to change my password how do i do that?


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want Password on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.

Thanks for using Fixya.

The wap54G is having issues. Computers trying to connect to it keep acquiring ip address and never connecting. Any advice on what might be wrong?


Hi williamrayes,

If you have a message that acquiring ip address you can Power Cycle the router for 2 minutes then try to connect again or you can try to check if the Network Key that your typing is correct (If the connection is secured). You can check the Network Key of your router by accessing the Wireless Settings Page of your router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security, You can personalize the Network Key if your want. Save the settings then try to connect.

Rate me if this helps so I can help others.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I am trying to setup my set up a Access Point at my house with the following product. a EnGenius EOC 2611P. when i set security on the device it is not sending an ip address to the computer. is there a...


Assigning an IP address to a computer is a function of DHCP. Either the access point's DHCP server much be enabled, or a DHCP server somewhere on the network to which the AP provides a path must be enabled. There should be only one DHCP server per LAN.
For example, if you have a home router handing out DHCP addresses to computers in your home, and you wire this AP to your router to wirelessly serve an additional computer or computers in a remote location, then its DHCP server should be off, because DHCP service will be performed by your home router to both local and remote computers.
However, if you connect this AP directly to your network interface and serve ONLY computers in a remote location, then its DHCP server should be on, so that it will provide DHCP addresses to the remote computers (because your network interface in general won't, unless it is also a router itself, in which case see the previous paragraph).

Linksys WRT54GS shows that it connects, but doesn't really


How could I possibly be smarter than the Linksys tech?

Do your computers have fixed IP addresses or obtain DHCP from the main router? You need to know this because you also need to let one or the other serve DHCP. If it were my system, I'd let the main router serve and the access points just exist.

For that to happen, you need to pick a fixed IP address outside of the IP addresses that can be assigned by your equipment, or pick one that is unused by your network devices.

Unplug the WAN cord from the Linksys and set your computer to 192.168.0.5 or 1.5, depending on what the Linksys does by default. Log into the Linksys and make it use a fixed IP address on the WAN side to whatever you need. Now, as I said above, I'd trun OFF LAN DHCP so it gets DHCP from your network router.

Now reset your laptop to use DHCP, power down the Linksys and plug it into the netrwork and power it up. From any computer on your network, you should be able to go to the router's fixed IP address and be looking at the login screen. Log in, change your password, and you should be up and running :-)

Note that there are a TON of variations on this theme, so don't despair if it fails to work. The key is knowing what your network requires.

2wire 2700hg-b wired router wont allow setup of Linksys WAP54G access point


the ip address of the 2wire router might be different from the ip address being used by the wap54g (ip address is 192.168.1.245 by default) that's why it's not being detected.
you need to directly connect the wap54g to a computer and set the computer to use a static ip address (ex. 192.168.1.240) and run the cd that came with the wap54g. you need to set the ip address of the wap54g to the same segment being used by your router to make them see each other

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern

ciao!

Cannot log on to dwl2000ap


If the SSID changed to the default then you know that the router reset to the default settings and you should set your computer to automatically get its IP address via DHCP. I always set up my routers through a Wired connection first, just to setup the router and then go with the wireless. The default for the router should be 192.168.0.1 and subnet 255.255.255.0 . If the computer is set with a static IP address, change it to obtain an IP address automatically or the network card will not bother even looking for an address.

Help setting up hwr54g as an access point


Yes there is an easier way! Just setup the router as you would any normal setup. Follow the directions to set it up for the first time. What you want to do is have the put in all of your information that you need for it to communicate with your Modem. This will automatically place the router onto your network. Now the part that I believe you want is for this to be secure! Well setup either a WEP or WPA these are both encryption Protocols that will denie access to anyone other than you or someone you allow to access your network wirelessly.
You do not really have to go through all of the trouble of setting up specifics. As long as the two devices communicate the router and the modem will do the rest. I do this everyday in my daily work day! Anymore quesitons please feel free to ask!
