Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)

1 Answer

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 to connect the ASUS EA-N66R as a range extender.


SETTING A ROUTER AS A REPEATER 1. Connect your computer to the repeater router's RJ45 port with a LAN cable. 2. Open a browser, then enter the router's URL configuration's IP address, This is usually something similar to 192.168.0.1 3. Enter the configuration user name and password. The router will display the various router settings. 4. Go to the page that changes the IP address of the router. Changed the IP address so that it is not the same as the main router on the network, or any other network devices. If the main router on the network is set to 192.168.1.1 then the repeater router should use a higher number (ie. 10), such as 192.168.1.10 or higher, depending on how many devices are on your network. 5. Disable the repeater router's DHCP server. This setting should be on the same page as the IP address, (this may be different depending on the make of the router). When the main router is operating normally, this server assigns an IP address to every device that is connected to your network. Because this router is used as a repeater, the main router on your network will still issue the IP addresses. 6. Also turn off the DNS server, if it is activated. This function will be taken over by the main router. 7. Disable any firewall settings on the repeater router. This is usually in the "Security" section, depending on the make and model of your router. 8. Remove all in the "Port Forwarding" section. Some routers may refer to this as "Applications and Gaming," and it allows less-restricted access to the internet. 9. Set the operating mode switch to "Gateway" or "Switch" if applicable. Also, if the repeater router is a wireless router then disable the wireless access or set it to access point only. 10. Save the settings for each page, and reboot the router. When the router boots up, the changes will allow it to act as a simple repeater. 11. Now, place the repeater router in a new location and connect both routers with a Ethernet cable in each of the router's RJ45 LAN ports, and power it up both routers.

Can this router be used as an access point or range extender?


Yes it can you will have to get the ip address for it then go into setup and set to access point.


see generic setups

To open the set up page of the router of the router , one of your computer should be able to go online through the router.
It could be a wired computer or wireless computer.
If it is a wireless computer then make sure that the computer is connected to your own wireless network.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router using a wireless computer.
OK ! Now you have a computer online through the router and you want to open the set up page of the router.

First step is check the IP address of the computer.
Check the IP address and the Default gateway on the computer.

For Windows XP

START ==> RUN ==> type in cmd in the RUN box==> click OK or Hit ENTER . You will see a black window that is a command prompt . In the black window type in " ipconfig " ==> and Hit ENTER on your key board .

For Windows Vista and Windows 7

click on START ==> type in cmd in the start search box ==> enter ==> you will see the black window. Type in " ipconfig "you will see a lot of information. Try to find out the local area connection IPv4 address .

Note down the Default gateway number.

For MAC OS

Click APPLE icon in the right top corner of the computer. Go to System Preferences ==> go to Network ==> you will find the option Built in Ethernet or Airport whichever is connected. If you go to that you will find the Ip address and router Address.

The default gateway is the IP address of your router.

This IP address of the router will be used to open the set up page of the router

Now you got the IP address of the router.Open the Internet Browser ( Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari )

In the Address bar of the browser Type the IP address of the router.

Do not type http:// or www just type in the IP address only.

It will ask you for the user name and the password of the router.

This is the User name and the password of the router and NOT the wireless password. On a wireless router, there are 2 passwords. One is to access the router and the other one is for the wireless network.

For most of the routers the default password will be " admin " . for some routers the default password is " password ". For Linksys router the default password is admin and no user name.

Can not access router setup page. IP is to be 192.168.1.102 , says can not find. This is the main computer on network, other's are wireless.


The number 192.168.1.102 must be your computer's IP address.If you want to access the router set up then You will need the Ip address of the router.
Is your computer connected to the router with the cable. if not then connect the computer to the router and check the IP address and default gateway on the computer.
Once you have the default gateway number use that number to open the router set up.
Generally the Linksys router IP address is 192.168.1.1.
Try this number.

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!

Connection (or disconnection) difficulties


The time span for the assigned IP address are controlled by the router in the DHCP configuration, which can be set to your satisfaction, by accessing the router configuration page, by entering http://192.168.0.1 in the internet explorer address window. Be sure to use the IP Address assigned to the router.. Also you can release an IP of a computer by opening the MS/DOS command window by clicking Start/Run and typing in CMD and then enter at the courser ipconfig /release this will release the ip. then type ipconfig /renew this will reset the ip of the computer. If this helps please rate as a FixYa. Thanks BPCS
