I have the 4 port Linsky Router.I have a Sony laptop connected to a Sony wireless routerI also have a movie download box. When I connect both to the modem separetely,bolth the laptop and the mvie download...


this is because your wireless router is a router, and your linksys is also a router. Both are attempting to do routing, and they're colliding with each other.

Go into your linksys router's settings, and set it's IP address to have the SAME subnet mask as your wireless router, (The third number in the ip address has to be the same)

e.g. if your wireless router is 192.168.0.1, make sure your linksys is 192.168.0.2
if your wireless router is 192.168.2.1, make sure your linksys is 192.168.2.2

After that, turn OFF the dhcp server on your linksys router (do this in the linksys config page).

After that, plug the LAN port of your linksys to the LAN port of your wireless router.

Your linksys will now be acting like a "Switch" which is an extension of your network. Voila!

I have Verizon Fios install in my home. I use to have Comcast. This is the situation, before the Fios my linksys wireless router was connected directly to a modem. Now my linksys wireless router is...


Your IP address for you linksys router needs to be changed.  More than likely there using the same IP address such as 192.168.0.1.
You have to convert your linksys router to a switch and change the IP address range it uses to on that doesn't conflict with the Verizon router.
10.150.1.1 should work.

I need to install a Linksys Wireless router to my pc.


Could we have the model number of the router please?

On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."

How do I set up my Linksys router?


Physical Setup of a LinkSys Router Each model of LinkSys router will differ slightly, but the general design is similar across all models. Therefore, the setup is similar across all models.
  1. Attach the antennas to the router (if your LinkSys router support wireless)d
  2. Plug the Ethernet cable from your broadband Internet provider into the port labeled "Internet"
  3. Plug another Ethernet cable into one of the available ports
  4. Plug the other end of that same cable into an Ethernet port on your PC
LinkSys Router Configuration LinkSys routers now ship with a Setup Wizard which is intended to simplfy basic configuration tasks.
We do not recommend the LinkSys Setup Wizard for two reasons:
  1. The Setup Wizard is not significantly easier that the regular configuration menus
  2. If you use the Setup Wizard, you will end up learning two interfaces for your LikSys router instead of just one
Instead, we recommend simply starting your web browser and jumping into the configuration.
Once your web browser is open, go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password.

Logging in to a LinkSys Router
The username is either blank or "admin" and the default password is "admin".
Once you are past the login screen, you are able to access (and change) a plethora of configuration options for your router.
Don't be worried by the enormous number and variety of options, your LinkSys router ships with default settings that enable it to work right out of the box in most environments.
From here the configuration options that you choose are largely up to your own personal preference.
If this is a wireless router, we recommend that you consider setting an SSID to identify the router as your own and configuring WEP to encrypt your wireless traffic.

Do I have to keep my Linksys Wireless-G ADSL Gateway Model No. wAG54S Switched ON all the time even after I have finished using the computer?


No, you don't have to keep the linksys router ON if you are not doing anything over the internet.But if you are downloading any file on the internet while you are away ,it needs to be ON.

All devices which requires internet to work and are connected with Linksys will not work as soon as you turn it oFF.
Linksys =OFF
Internet=OFF

Linksys Wag354G v2 keeps disconnecting from the internet


make sure that the latest firmware is installed on your ADSL2+ gatewayand make sure that you select the correct modulation based on your ISP's recomendation, you can check those settings by accessing the configuration page of the device using your browser(IE/Mozilla/Safari), the default IP address is 192.168.1.1 username and password is "admin" here's a link for the user interface of the router.

oh also check if your micro filter is still working properly sometimes that will also cause the connection to drop if it's also ready failing.

hope this help you solve your connection problem

Loosing linksys Router instructed cd to set up


Have had many time problems with the router:

Do the following: If you have a router and a linksys modem do it to both.
Disconnect the power source from the router and disconnect the ethernet cable wait about 30 seconds .. plug back in the power sources (do not just pull the plug that goes into the wall...... remove the black little cord that plugs into the router)
In some cases (if the above doesn't work the first time..) you may also want to completely unscrew the coaxial cable from your broadband provider ) and wait 30 seconds or a minute and follow through with the unplug resetting..
Note: there are also reset features on the back of your modem and router.. it never hurts to use those once in awhile


on router.. there little button that pops out in the back .. just hold it in for 2 0r 3 seconds and release..
on modem... SEE that tiny little hole between the power supply and the ethernet plug.. carefully insert a paper clip into the hole..no you won't get electrocuted.. and GENTLY push the reset ...
Hope this helps.

Wireless g wrt54g router


First of all, are you connecting with a PC or a Notebook?

If you have the Linksys router, you should replace the MS utility with the Linksys utility it figures your linksys wireless lan card
There are programs you can use to keep track of your router and connections...One such program is called Port Mapper...

http://3d2f.com/programs/34-197-port-mapper-download.shtml

Does your problem happen everday...or every 3 weeks...are you doing anything in particular when you are getting the inability to use the connection?
There is a new Vista patch out there I recommend downloading.
