Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)
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?
-- 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.
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.

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.
