Linksys WRT54GR-UK Connection Problems

I have just bought a wireless router, but when running through the software installation I select DHCP option, and input Host and Domain name as Virgin Media (as my ISP has told me it should be) but I cannot get it to connect to the internet through the router? Any suggestions?

Thanks
Kieren

Try changing the default ip address of the router to 192.168.2.1. Sometimes the ISP's modem is set at 192.168.1.1 which will conflict with a router using the same IP.

Linksis router wont work help me out


First of all contact your isp and get your connection settings. If you are able to setup the router using the cd provided then good. If you are still having problems then go ahead and contact linksys (remember linksys charges for the support). I suggest get a technician to assist you in setting up.

Internet explorer won't open


when it says connected it means to the router, open up internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and tick never dial a connection, or if it's already greyed out it's ok.

Assuming you have run the wireless network connection wizard first to set up the connection, if not it's in network connections and select new wireless connection or set up a wireless network.

Problem connecting to the net


You router may be set to be DHCP enabled so that it allocates the ip addresses automatically to each pc, so check that the pc's network card with connection problems is set in the properties on the TCP/IP line is set to obtain an ip address automatically. You can also try, Start>run then type ipconfig /flushdns to clear the pc ip address and dns. and restart pc. Lastly if you pc is both network cabled and wireless, ensure one or the other is dissabled as this can confuse the ip adress alocation.
