    I followed the setup wizard steps 1-4. Step 4 says to plug in the router, which I've done, and the green lights on the router light up. But, the wizard says the router is not plugged in. Also, with the router set up and plugged in, I can't get internet on my pc. Is it possible my pc is blocking the router and I need to unlock some security on my pc? I know I have all the cables hooked up correctly, and my laptop is capable of picking up internet signals.

    same thing essentially happened to me: My DSL connection works fine directly connecting modem to computer. When I put the router in between modem and computer, router set-up would not complete.: it continually hangs up on step 4. I got error message 321 when connected to port 1 on the router. I re-tried on port 4 and got same thing. This could be a problem with the DSL modem--may need to be in PPPoE vice DHCP: but my ISP's instructions on configuring the modem have not worked so far. Anyone have any ideas?

    Yikes, so much upgrading the router. Using RCA245R cable modem, Linksys WRT54G2 v1, Cox as an ISP and a mix of wired and wireless PC's running XP Pro SP3. Able to connect any direct wired PC to cable modem but adding Linksys router in results in constant modem resets. Have reset both modem and router back to factory default several times with a restart order of modem, router and pc with waits between each. Occasionally modem will stay up for about 40 minutes and then crash. Several days ago had blazing fast connect speeds and then everything went down again as soon as a wireless laptop hit the router. I'm stumped and Cox understandably can't help with the router.

Most likey you will need to set MAC cloning on the new router. The MAC address should be printined on the DSL or FIOS router/modem.

I'm having the same issue, except my WRT54G2 is not getting DHCP from verizon now.

To connect to the router wirelessly using a Windows XP, right click on the wireless network connection icon on the lower right corner of the screen and choose view available wireless networks. Select your existing network and click on the connect button. If you are using Vista, go to network and sharing center of your control panel then select connect to a network. If you still having problems, please provide details of the problem like your Internet service provider and if there are already other computers online with your WRT54G2.

Try to reset the router. This should resolve your problem. That model has a small hole were you must press with some a paper clip for exemple for a few seconds. This will reset the router to its original state.

SOURCE: setup linksys wrt54g2 broadband router with prolink h9200 modem

You probably will need to make some configuration changes in the Linksys router, or in your computer, or both. Your are correct that you connect the Linksys WAN connection to the LAN connection of the modem. If your connection type is PPPOE, you will need to set that up in the Linksys with the username and password provided by your ISP, so the modem will allow you to login and connect to the internet. If that is how you were connecting to the modem with your computer, you will need to configure a new LAN connection in the computer in order to connect to the Linksys. You can then configure the Linksys through your web browser to connect to the modem.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

SOURCE: How to configure Linksys WRT54G router with BSNL's C2110 modem?

The Linksys WRT54G broadband router is one of the most popular consumer routers there are. Linksys makes configuring your router easy. This article will walk you through the initial setup options for this particular model, but many of the basics we talk about here can be applied to any router setup. Setting up the router consists of four basic steps, such as Testing your Internet connection, connecting your hardware, setting up the connection and power cycling the entire network. Aside, from setup, we'll also describe some security concerns so you can make an educated decision on the administration of your home network.
Test Your Internet Connection First While this seems like something you would not need to be, make sure your Internet connection actually works. If you haven't already, plug the cable modem directly into the back of the computer and make sure you can get onto the internet. You may need to reboot the machine first.
Connect The Modem and Router to the PC Now that we have confirmed the Internet connection works, the next step is to connect the modem to the router and the router to the PC. The modem will attach to the router's Internet Port. You will then attach the router to the PC via any of the four Ethernet ports in the rear. Check the LED lights in the front of the router to confirm all of the connections are properly made. The Power, WLAN, Ethernet Port to PC and the Internet should all be lit.
Configure The Linksys WRT54G Settings With all connection made, you will now need to login to the router via your web browser. Type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter. You should see the login screen. Leave the username blank and type admin as the password and hit enter.
You will now need to configure the router's connection to the Internet. Under the Setup / Basic Setup section, make sure the router is setup to Automatic Configuration - DHCP. This allows the router to receive an IP address from your Internet Service Provider.
Next, go to the MAC Address Clone tab in the same area and enable Mac Address Cloning. This allows the router to clone your PCs MAC address, as the ISP may require this.
Power Cycle the Router and Modem Now that everything is configured, you'll want to power cycle everything. This is done to make sure everything has an IP address from the modem all the way through to the PC. To power cycle, shutdown everything. Unplug the modem and router power source. Shutdown the computer. Plug in the modem and wait for all green lights. Next, plug in the router and wait a few minutes until its lights are also green. Lastly, boot up the PC. You should have an Internet connection.
Change the Linksys WRT54G Router Password You noticed when setting up the router, that there was a default username of nothing and a password of "admin." Be sure to log back into the router once everything is running properly and type in a username and change the password. If you don't, a hacker that sees you have a WRT54G router could login to the router with the default credentials.

do you have the broadband modem plugged into the wan on the router and is the cable you are using good. and also check to see if your internet is working. you should be able to connect your computer to the modem and get internet. if your broad band requires you to log on the modem before you get out you will need to connect directly to your router and set it up per the instructions.

  • Is your computer connected to the wireless router
  • If you are able to see the router, maybe you need a security code to access it.

Do hope 1 of the above helps.

Connecting wireless router to laptop computer


Try changing the channel on the router. It would be better to isolate the problem first by trying to connect to other wireless networks on your laptop or having someone's laptop connect to your home wireless network.
