WRT300N is no longer visible in View Available Wireless Networks

This was working fine all along. The wired connect to the router works fine. But the wireless is not transmitting. The PC does not show this router anymore.

    The Linksys wrt 300 n has worked fine for 2 years and just overnight my laptop couldn't find the signal. I unplugged it, reset it, put in new channels and tryed just about everything I know, but the wireless light that indicates a broadcast signal wont light up. The LINK box on my comcast cable modem box blinks. If I unplug the cable from either the modem or the router the modem light goes off.

    Bought my Linksys WRT300N (V1) router in September 2007, worked great with two wired and four wireless PCs connected to it fine, until I unplugged it to move, end of June 2008. July 26th, 2008 I plug it back in and only wired connections work. My laptop (Sabayon Linux / Slackware Linux) will not pick up the network, and manual attempts to connect to it fail.

    Despite the wireless settings not changing, the status window in the WRT300N (v1) now show that there is no MAC address for the wireless network, and the Band and Channel both are listed as "N/A"

    Firmware 1.03.3
    Will try upgrading to 1.03.6. Will post if successful.

    I have a Linksys WRT300N Wireless Internet router and the wired network works fine but the wireless portion of it does not work. No MAC address appears for the wireless network and there is a MAC address for the wired network. Any help on this matter would be appreciated.

    Today I bought a new wireless router from linksys and followed all directions several times, but the computer can't even find the router. It says I must not have the cables connected correctly. The cables work fine on other computers. I'm taking the new router back tomorrow. Maybe the comcast modem is having difficulty.

How do I ad another computer to my router


Since you are adding one, it means you do have a computer that is already working with this router. It means you router is been configured already. So if you need to add another one, its very simple.

For wired connection:
-just get an Ethernet cable long enough to reach your computer then connect the ends on the available Ethernet port located on the back of the router and the other end should be connected on the Ethernet port on your computer.

For wireless connection:
Look for a wireless icon on the bottom part of your screen near the clock. For Windows Vista and Windows 7 just click it and will show you the wireless networks that are available. For Windows XP, right click the icon and select "View available wirleess networks". As soon as you see the list of wireless networks, select yours and click "Connect". If your network is secure type the security key that been setup on the wireless router, if not secured it should connect immediately.

Hi

What i would do in this situation is ist i would check that all wires are connected properly to the router

Try resetting my router back to factory settings there is normally a reset switch on the router

If that does the trick and if you want to make any adjustments to the router look up the manual or google it to find out what ip address you need to type into your top browser then click save settings and log out

If that dont work right click the wireless icon in the task bar down on the right hand side go to view available wireless networks then go over to the left hand side go to
Advanced settings

Then up top to wireless networks

Make sure a tick in top left saying use windows to configure my network settings

Go to bottom right Advanced tick in any available networks then go back to your network ssid or the name of the network that you normally connect to DELETE IT click ok

Then in a very short time windows should give you a warning of wireless network or networks available

So click on the notice from windows or right click the wireless network icon bottom right hand side Go to view wireless networks

Your network should now be back in there so highlight it rightclilck it and connect typing in Security Key if nec

Hopefully this will get you back on line if not

You could try a system restore back to around the date that it started to play up

hopefully this will get you back online

Cant get wireless router to work on laptop


First, try to connect your laptop hardwired to the router, if it works fine, its just the wireless configuration. Make sure you are using the correct wireless network key to connect to your wireless network. Go to the Control Panel > Network Connections > Right-click Wireless Network Connection > Properties > Wireless Networks Tab and delete all the names listed under Preferred Networks box. Click Ok. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection again > View Available Wireless Network > Choose your own network and click Connect. If it asks you to type the network key, type in your WEP or Wireless Network Key and press connect. That should do it.

Right-click the wireless icon with red X and click on View Available wireless networks. Highlight the name of your wireless network and click Connect. If it asks you for the network key, type in the secuirty key of the router and press connect. That should do it. If you don't know the wireless security key of the router, you can see it by accessing the router's Setup Page through http://192.168.1.1 on your browser. It's under wireless tab then wireless security sub tab

Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network:

a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off
b. Distance between the wireless router and computer
c. Possible wireless interferences

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Advanced tab.

4. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
6. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Select your network and click on Connect.

For Windows Vista:

1. Click Start then select Connect To.
2. Connect to a network window will show up.
3. Select your wireless network and click Connect.
4. It will ask you for a network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use Windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab.

We hope that the above steps provided would help resolve the problem. If the steps above did not work, we will need to get some additional details from you to be able to assist you further. I have summarized my questions below:

1. Can your computer go online when it is hardwired to the router?
2. What wireless adapter are you using?
3. What is the operating system of your computer?

Wired internet working through netgear... wireless access denied


You must determine the wireless security of your router;

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".
a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. take note of the SSID
c. if your using WEP...the network key would be on the key 1.
d. If WPA-PSK TKIP is in use just type in a new key with a minimum of 8 characters on the passphrase box. Please remember it.
