Is your laptop wireless signal turned ON? Sometimes it will turn itself off for one reason or another. Also check in the Device Manager to ensure it is enabled and has the correct driver(s). Check with the manufacturer of the laptop to see if they have any solutions available for you to try.

My laptop and my iphone indicate that my wireless-g broadband router is putting out a wireless signal; but neither accessory works on the network, even though the bars are entirely full on the devices.


The bars on your laptop or iPhone means that you are connected to the router! Not necessarily to internet. Your internet depends on ISP Internet service provider and modem which connected to your router. To check if you have active internet connection connect your laptop directly to modem provided by your ISP with ethernet cable and try to open a internet browser IE or Safari or Chrome or Firefox and open a webpage! If you are able to connect internet by this mean you have internet connection active. Now disconnect your lap top from modem and connect modem to your Linksys router using WAN port of LINKSYS! Its good to power off and power on (power cycle) once on modem and router to make it work!
good luck!

Possible reason why you lost the connection with your DSL line is that the router's configuration was changed. To reconfigure your Linksys router, you need to connect your computer wired to the router.
Open a Web Browser (IE, Firefox etc.) on the wired computer and type http://192.168.1.1 and press Enter. On the Username box leave it blank and on the password box type in admin. You will then see the router's configuration page. Under the Basic Setup tab you will see Internet Connection type on the left side of the screen. Click on the down arrow button and select PPoE, type in the Username and password that was provided by your DSL Internet service provider. Once your done click on the Save setting button on the bottom of the screen. Click on the Status tab on the top of the screen. Click on the Connect button and check if you will have an IP address on the Internet IP address option. If a valid IP address is present then you should have an internet connection then.

I have a desk top couputer and a lap top. the lap top crashed and since then I can,t get on the internet. the Linksys router as for a pass key to get on the internet and I forgot what this is. How do I...


First of all you need to connect to your router using a LAN connection (wireless won't work as you might not be connected wirelessly due to the missing WEP key) and follow the steps below:

1.) using the internet explorer (not AOl or MSN or..)but the internet explorer that your computer came with.
2.) enter "192.168.1.1" in the website address field. do NOT use www in front.
3.) this will bring you to a linksys website. You might need to login (default username and password is admin)
4.) click on wireless
5.) then wireless security
6.) then you will see the page with the wep key listed.
7.) use the first wep key listed.

In case nothing helps, you will need to hard reset your router which would erase all the settings and configuration and bring the router back to factory settings. You may refer to the manual to perform the hard reset, in case you have lost the manual leave a comment and we shall provide you the next steps.

Although cable to desktop connects to internet, my router from desktop to laptop via router won't connect.


Desk top to internet is OK.
How about Destop through Router connection to Internet OK?
Assuming you want to connect wireless from Lap top to Network, need to configure correctly for wireless in Router.
If you connect Lap top to router by wire and it didn't work that mean your router is bad.

In your internet explorer address bar, type in the ip address of 192.168.1.1 and see if it asks you for a password.

If that isn't it, try 192.168.1.245.

The default password is admin. No username.

Installation broadband router linksys WRT54G v5


Please connect the laptop to the linksys router with the cable provided. On the linksys, connect the able in any port from 1-4. Please do not connect the laptop to the Internet port.

From the start menu, select Run. Type in cmd and press enter. At the prompt, type in ipconfig. On the line that says Default Gateway -> this is the address of the router when connected to the computer and (DHCP being on).

Make a note of the Default Gateway and type it in the address bar in an Internet Explorer window. At the login prompt, leave the username prompt blank and type admin for password.

This will allow you to access the web GUI.


Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a good feedback. Thanks...

Diana, The router has lost its IP address from the ADSL gateway. Unplug the router from the wall for about a minute or two. Plug it back in..? If that doesn't work you need to login to your router and check the settings. or(there is a small reset button on the back of the router. Hold it in for 10 seconds the router will reset.) http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Content_C1&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1114037290855&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Content_C1&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1114037290855&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper If possible turn your computers off while resetting the connection. Some inter Microsoft networks will issue its own IP if it doesn't detect one. Good Luck, Tim
