Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

I reinstalled Windows into my computer because it had a virus. I have internet when the PC is connected to the modem. But when I run the linksys setup, linksys does not detect internet connection, so the router will not work. even though right now I am using the internet connection, so I know that is not the problem. Please Help.

Well you'r ISP connection is good since you have internet when connected to the modem (just be verry prudent since you have no security when connected to the modem)

First verify with you'r ISP what type of connection you have (STATIC IP, DYNAMIC IP/DHCP, PPPOE, etc...)
Ask you'r ISP if they can reset you'r account (MAC ADDRESS, PASSWORD, etc...)
You can also verify the connections from the modem to the router (CABLES, CONNECTORS, etc...)

Good luck!

Slow internet problem i think its my communications card


This document is GENERIC for all types of PC using XP or before. Step 1: Detecting and removing spyware and adware software If the computer becomes slow when connecting to the Internet, your home page changes to a page you do not want, unwanted desktop links display, or advertising windows pop up repeatedly, then your computer probably has spyware, or adware installed. Spyware and adware can be difficult to remove manually. See the following HP support document for more information about spyware and how to remove it from your computer: HP and Compaq PCs - About Spyware, Adware, and Browser Hijacking Software . Step 2: Scan and remove viruses It might be that a virus or several viruses are attempting to use the Internet connection when the browser is open. See the following HP support document for more information about how to scan and remove viruses: Resolving and Preventing Viruses on Your Computer . NOTE: If you have not updated Windows recently using Windows Update (in English), now is a good time; after scanning and removing spyware and viruses . Step 3: Clearing history, temporary files, and resetting settings Clear the amount of temporary files that the browser uses as follows:
  1. Open the browser software.
  2. Click Tools from the menu bar.
  3. Select Internet Options . The Internet Options window displays. Figure 1: Internet Options windowc00162617.jpg
  4. Click the General tab.
  5. In the Temporary Internet Files area, click Delete Files .
  6. Select Delete all offline content , and click OK .
  7. In the History area, click Clear History , and click OK .
  8. Click the Security tab, and select Default Level .
  9. Click the Content tab, and click Clear SSL State .
  10. Click the Programs tab, and click Reset Web Settings .
  11. Click the Advanced tab, click Restore Defaults , and then click OK .
  12. Connect to the Internet. If the computer stops responding, continue to next step.
Step 4: Update the network or modem drivers Updating the network and modem drivers can fix some lockup problems. Install the latest update for your network hardware that you use. Update the network hardware if you connect to the Internet using DSL, Cable, or LAN. Update the modem software if you connect using dial-up.
  1. Go to the HP Software download page . Select your country/region.
  2. Type the model name for your HP or Compaq computer. For example, SR1820NX or m7434n.
  3. Select the version of Windows the computer is using.
  4. Select the network or modem driver update. For example, Realtek RTL8139 LAN Driver Update.
  5. Follow the instruction on the download page to download and install the update.
  6. When done, restart and try to connect to the Internet again. If the problem persists, continue to the next Step.
Step 5: Disabling Software that opens with Windows For troubleshooting purposes, reduce the amount of software that opens with Windows to try and find out if a software conflict is occurring. Open the Microsoft System Configuration software (Msconfig), remove the selection next to Load Startup Items , click OK , and restart the computer. For more information, see Preventing Programs from Opening When Windows Starts . Connect to the Internet. If the computer stops responding, continue to next step. Step 6: Removing and reinstalling ISP and Anti-virus software Remove the Internet Service Provider (ISP) software and install the latest version. Use the document on Advanced Modem Troubleshooting for more information about how to remove and reinstall the ISP software. Regards, Shrey

This is a tuff router.  I bought it myself hoping for good things, and spent a good two days actually getting the thing to work.

I got mine to work by plugging it into the modem, the laptop I was setting it up with, etc, and then running it all. I would just suggest trying to reinstall it again with everything plugged in from the get go, and then hope for the best.... sorry I cant help more.

I just installed my siemens se567 wireless router nd I want to set up a wireless network to another computer using a linksys wireless usb network card. What must I do?


Hi tbopper, install linksys software. Follow the instruction. Disable your anti virus / firewall software. (temporally). Make sure the PC with the wireless card is turned on.
Than open My Network connections & run windows Set up a home or small office network. Follow windows instructions.
That's it. When you restart your PC your Anti virus software should enable it's self. Check your firewall is also back on, if it's included in your anti virus it will re-inable it's self. Since your running a wireless make sure you enable security & password, other wise anyone with a wireless can tap into your wireless signal slowing your bandwith down.
To test your linksys is correct. Open internet explorer. In the address window type in 192.168.1.1 & press enter. Your settings should show up. Tech support is free with linksys.

Good Luck & Enjoy!
