Question about Linksys : WRT54GS Wireless-G Router W/ SpeedBooster (NELIWP17)

1 Answer

I have a linksys WRT54G, and I'm trying to hook up a wi-fi connection. As of now, my internet is Internet Explorer, and my current modem is a motorola SB5101. The Motorola modem is hooked up directly to the computer. When it's like that, the internet works just fine, but as soon as I hook up the linksys to the modem and computer, it wont work. The WLAN light won't com on on the linksys, and the "PC/ACTIVITY" light on the Motorola modem won't go away. I've followed all the steps on the linksys easy advisor program. The reason I'm trying to set up this wireless network is because I'm trying to get it for XBOX Live. If that makes any difference.

Hello
Try this

1 disconnect all wires,including power from the modem and router.
2 Find reset button on router usually in the back,need a pen tip or paper clip to hold it in.
3 Hold in reset for 1 min.
4 Reconnect modem first,power up.
5 Reconnect router second, power up.

Try changing the ethernet wire from the modem to the router.

So your going to have your cable coax wire to the modem.Then a ethernet wire from the modem to the router,then a ethernet wire from the router to the computer.

Sounds like you may have one wire in the wrong place.

Basic troubleshooting
  • Tap Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi off and then on again.
  • Verify that you are in range of your Wi-Fi router or base station.
  • Confirm that your Wi-Fi router and Cable/DSL modem are connected to power and turned on.
  • Check whether other devices (portable computers, for example) are able to connect to the Wi-Fi network and access the Internet.

Linksys router


unplug your DSL modem. Wait 30 seconds and plug it back in.

Make sure the router is connected to a DSL modem. Lately I have seen DSL modems connected to offices that are really routers. If thats the case it may not be talking because the DSL is address the gateway with the same address as the router.

The best way to test this is to see what happens when you disconnect your linksys router and type in http://192.168.0.1
in internet explorer.

If the DSL modem screen appears, it's configured as a router.

Then you will have to take the linksys router and turn it into a switch with a wireless access point. I

If it is the Linksys Wireless G WRT54G, then go to this link there is simple instructions on how to setup wireless network.

But, first verify you do have a Wireless card in your laptop. by, hitting Start, Run, then type in CMD in the run box.

When the MSdos(Black window) opens type in IPCONFIG/ALL

this should show all the Network adapters on your machine including your Ethernet and any wireless if avail.

It is usually listed below your LAN/Ethernet settings. It may say something like Intel Pro/100 or 1000 Mobile connection under description. If you dont see a wireless adapter. then go out and buy a Wireless card or a USB wi-fi dongle.
