If its a wired connection it will automatically know that its connected to it. With the wireless you need to veiw the available networks before you can connect to the network. And if the router is already configured for internet they will automatically get the internet connection.
If you need help to make sure that the router is online. Kindly provide me with this info;

Internet service provider:
brand or model of Modem from internet service provider:
Operating system of the computers:

thanks.

Laptops connect to router but still cannot get on internet


It's just a wireless interference problem. All you need to do is change the wireless channel of your router. Login to the router's admin page and look for wireless channel under the WIRELESS tab. Change it to channel 11 and save the settings. That should solve your problem. You can play around with different channels and check which one is the best for your environment. Good Luck!

Connecting issues with wireless mode on WRT54G2


  1. Try to disable WEP in the router and check if the wireless computer will be able to connect to the router and Internet.
  2. Then enable WEP again. If the same problem happens, upgrade the firmware of your router.
  3. Click on the link for the lastest firmware available for your router.

Hi,

Other than the laptop and the LinkSys WRT54G, you would need an active account/subscription with an Internet Service Provider (ISP) who then will provide you with a modem of sort.

On initial setup, connect your modem to your laptop and verify that you can connect to the Internet. Thereafter run the CD installer that came with the LinkSys before connecting/powering the LinkSys. Follow on screen instruction. At one point in the installation, you would be asked to disconnect the modem, connect the router and connect the modem to the router.

Should for some reason the above instruction will not address your concern, pls post back.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Loss of Connectivity


Libog1 - did you install any additional wireless software to connect to the router (Linksys software) or are you just allowing Vista to connect directly using Windows' built-in wireless management?
