Often the nets and subnets are NOT the same.. ie The Fixed connection often uses 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, however sometimes the wifi is setup 10.1.1.1, or 10.0.0.1 etc, have you checked this? Esentially tho ya router is an "Acess Point" and ya Lappy etc is ya "Client" the links below has a lot of tutorials to help have a look. http://portforward.com/routers.htm http://portforward.com/guides.htm

SOURCE: Problems with home networking between desktop running XP (wired) and laptop running Vista (wireless), using DSL broadband (PPPoE) internet connection, Westell 6100 modem/router & Linksys Wireless-G WR

Hi MissGarbs,

Based on your post and description, it would seem that your problem is caused by:
1. having 2 routers on the same system;
2. Both routers performs DHCP server function; and
3. Both routers use 192.168.1.1 as default IP Add.

Your problems are:
a. laptop has no internet access only local network; and
b. you cannot access the router to make changes.

A possible solution. Pls back up your configurations first before attempting changes (or log them down somewhere so if needed you can revert back).

A. Power off and remove all connections to the LinkSys WRT54GS, set it aside for the moment. The objective is to verify/establish Internet connection.

Connect your desktop PC via LAN cable to the Westell 6100. Boot your desktop PC, right click on the networking icon bottom right side in your system tray, click on Status, click on Properties button, highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click on properties button (mid right):
tick "Use the following IP address"
Enter values as shown below -
IP address: 192.168.1.4
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS servers: 68.238.0.12 & 68.238.112.12
click on OK, OK, Close.

Power on the Westell 6100, give it time to sync and connect to your Verison. .In the desktop PC, open a browser. Verify that your desktop have access to the Internet, do it on a few sites. Should you have no internet access, pls seek assistance from Verizon tech support. You need not mention the LinkSys nor the laptop since you have as of the moment a single PC attached directly to the Westell 6100.

If it is all green & go, power up your laptop and boot to Windows. Remove the LAN cable at the back of your desktop and connect it to the laptop's networking port. Do the same configuration ("Use the following IP address") to the networking/LAN card of your laptop.
Enter values as shown below -
IP address: 192.168.1.5
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS servers: 68.238.0.12 & 68.238.112.12

In the laptop open a browser. Verify that your laptop have access to the Internet, do it on a few sites. Should you have no internet access, pls seek assistance from Verizon tech support again. You need not mention the LinkSys nor the desktop since you have as of the moment a single laptop attached directly to the Westell 6100. (This is of course assuming that your laptop has a networking port)

If both the desktop PC and the laptop can now connect albeit individually to the Internet, the LinkSys may now be inserted into the system.

B. Disconnect the LAN connection of the laptop to the Westel 6100 and connect it to one of the 4 LAN ports at the rear of the WRT54GS; do the same with the desktop (use another LAN cable). The LinkSys for the moment need not be connected to the Westell. So in effect you have 2 units connected to the WRT54GS. Do a hard reset on the WRT54GS, with the power on, press on the small reset button at the rear of the unit. Allow it to reinitialize. Open browsers to both laptop and desktop. Type "192.168.1.1", password is "admin" and the username is blank, verify that you can open the LinkSys Web Configuration Utility. On either the laptop or the PC desktop (assuming both can access the same page), on the setup page of the LinkSys Config, change your Internet Connection Type to "Static IP",
Internet IP Address 192.168.1.2
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS servers: 68.238.0.12 & 68.238.112.12

Scroll down to Network Setup,
Change IP Address to 192.168.1.3
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Disable the DHCP Server (You can have at any given time only 1 instance of a DHCP server, either from the LinkSys or the Westell, but you can also have NO DHCP server if you are using static addresses.)

Click on Save Settings at the bottom, exit, and close. Verify that the LinkSys can be accessed from any of your browsers by typing "192.168.1.3", if no; go through the procedure again very carefully. If yes, proceed to change the Default Gateway of both the laptop and desktop PC from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.3, all other configurations stand.

In your laptop, right click on the WiFi networking icon (bottom right of System Tray). Click on Status, click on Properties button, highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click on properties button (mid right):
tick "Use the following IP address"
Enter values as shown below -
IP address: 192.168.1.6
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.3
DNS servers: 68.238.0.12 & 68.238.112.12
click on OK, OK, Close.

Verify that you can access/connect/ping 192.168.3; 192.168.4; 192.168.1.5; and/or 192.168.1.6 from either the laptop or desktop.

If yes, we can now connect the LinkSys WRT54GS to the Westell 6100. Remove the LAN cable attached to your laptop. Verify that you can still access/connect/ping 192.168.3; 192.168.4; 192.168.1.5; and/or 192.168.1.6 from the laptop even without the LAN cable since you are now connected via WiFi.

If yes, connect that LAN cable to the Westell 6100 LAN port, move the other end from 1 of the WRT54GS ‘ 4 LAN ports to the WAN likewise at the rear of the LinkSys.

Verify that you can access the Internet from either computer. At this moment, you have not assigned a security method (WEP, WPA, MAC Filter). Your choice as to what security you want implemented but offhand I would suggest the simplest, MAC Filter since any other would affect speed of your connection.

Additionally, you may want to enhance you browser connection. In Mozilla, click on Tools, Options, Advanced tab, Network tab, Settings button, tick "Auto-detect proxy settings for this connection, OK, OK;
In IE, Tools, Internet Options, Connections tab, LAN settings button, check "Automatically detect settings", OK, Advance tab, check Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections.
In Opera, Tools, Preferences, Advanced tab, Network, Proxy server buttons, check "Enable HTTP 1.1 for proxy, OK, OK.

Normally (and perhaps easier for some) would be using the DHCP and not using static. Experience has shown me that static proves to be more stable especially if WiFi is concerned and in your case, only 2 PCs.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: my linksys wrt54GC stops working when connect internet cable

You are installing things the wrong way.
First you plug the internet cable to the router, then turn ON the computers.
By doing so, the computers will arrange themself and will pick up the right IP address, and all other parameters,
Let me know if this solves your problem

Using your static IP, use your Internet browser (Explorer?) and go to:

192.168.1.1

A menu will appear:
Username: admin
Password: admin

You can configure it from there.

DNS server not responding on WRT54GL Linksys router


You are looking for DHCP server. It provides the IPs addresses for devices to connect. DNS resolves the IP into a name. Not really required unless you are setting up a virtual server, or the special setup.

This sounds like the router does not have DNS settings.

Check the web configuration to make sure that the DNS settings are valid. If there are DNS servers in there, try changing them to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 and see if you still get the same problem.

Hope this helps!

How can I put a code on my linksys?


Open Internet Explorer.
Type 'http://192.168.0.1' (or try 'http://192.168.1.1').
This will connect to the built-in web-server inside the Linksys router.
Click to run the 'Wireless Networking Setup Wizard',
and choose an SSID and choose a password-code.

Linksys Wireless-G not connecting to internet


Make sure you are plugging the SMC into the WAN port on the Linksys router and not the LAN ports.  Your internet connection (which is your SMC) should always plug into your WAN port on the Linksys.  Any computers that you may need to plug in, like Desktops that are "wired" and not "wireless", should plug into the LAN ports on the Linksys.  If you are not using the WAN port on the Linksys for your SMC modem, then that would explain why you cannot get to the internet on wireless or wired computers.
Here's why you are getting the "low connectivity" message:

Computers don't understand why the Internet is connecting or not connecting...so the "low connectivity" message you keep receiving has nothing to do with your wireless signal strength.   To a computer NIC, "low connectivity" means your network adapter could not find a DHCP server and receive a valid IP address.  When this happens, your network adapter assigns an IP address to your computer in the following range...169.254.0.0, and will display the "low connectivity" message until it is able to receive a valid private IP address from the DHCP server.  You can verify this by going to START | RUN and typing "cmd" (without the quotes), then hit ENTER.  A black box will pop up....then type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER.  This will show you your IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address, and you can verify that your IP address is in the 169.254.0.0 range.  A valid private IP address is typically in the 192.168.0.0 range, but could also be in the 10.0.0.0 range, or the 172.16.31.0 range.    Also, make sure you have DHCP server enabled on the Linksys router for the LAN.  This will ensure your "wired" and "wireless" computers receive a valid IP address.  
The WAN port on your Linksys router should be configured to "Obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP".

Cheers!

I cannot connect to my server through the Linksys Router


Do the two routers have different ip addresses assigned (eg 192.168.1.1 for one, 192.168..2.1 for the other)? Chances are you are having NAT problems because of this. Let me know if you need more assistance configuring your routers.

Problem with Lynksys WRT54-G


This is a common problem with the Linksys wireless router. You will need to reset your ISP device, meaning the ADSL router, or Cable modem, reset the Linksys device, and reboot your computer in that order.

Next you "should" release the IP address of your computer once it reboots to Windows (assumed). To do this you click on RUN, type in CMD to get a DOS window. From that window type in "ipconfig /release" without the quotes. Then close the window. Reboot the comptuer again.

You will NEXT need to determine which device is acting as the DHCP server, the ISP device or the Linksys device. To do this you will need to open up the CMD window again but type in "ipconfig /all" without the quotes. If your ISP device is listed first, then it is likely the server for all available IP adress on your local network. This means that the Linksys has been assigned a new IP address. The Linksys must be the DHCP server in this case so that it may be accessed through 192.168.1.1 from your browser address.

To make the Linksys the DHCP server, you must connect your ISP device to the Ethernet uplink port on the back of the Linksys router. The Linksys router may then be connected to a Ethernet hub or act as your hub if you have no other.

I hope this shines some light on the problem.
