Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

Lap top not connecting to signial

Comcast came out to work on either the cable for pc or the tv and made an upgrade. They disconnected the linksys router , fairly new 2.4GHz . Comcast said it would no longer work and they put in their own box. We used the router for the lap top and had a sign on code . Now we can not connect to wireless they offered no information about their change. NOW THEY TELL ME THEY WILL NOT ADDRESS THE NO CONNECTION PROBLEM IT IS A LINKSYS ISSUE. I STILL HAVE THE ROUTER I do not know if it works . Is it possible to re-connect it? We also have a vontage box on the same network that was added after comcast came out. An and last what does the linksys power cable look like?

Yes you can reconnect your router. Whoever did that at Comcast had no business doing that and should be reported and return their equipment back to Comcast asap. It could appear on the bill.

I have a Linksys modem on my Comcast router and it works fine. I don't let them touch it because it uses T-Zones at home service for phone use and it uses a special router to manage it since it has a sim card to run the phone line.

Vonage equipment can be used as well.

I wonder if they were trying to put their phone service onto your system?

How can I set one router to connect with another


Easy way: Run a long ethernet cable from where the Comcast router is to the place you'd like to have the Linksys. Tell the Linksys not to act as a router or try to connect itself to the internet -- in this set-up, it's just acting as an access point. It probably needs to know the IP address of the router so it can send packets out to the Internet -- that information is called "Gateway" on my router. Feel free to add more detail to the question if that doesn't help!

How do I Connect a Dell Latitude E6500 to a Sanyo Television


Check your ports on the lap top see if you have s video or hdmi or dvi or VGA the best is hdmi if you have that get a cable for either one of you connections also match connections from the lap top to what you have for your TV more than likely if they are both fairly new you should have hdmi connections for both get a cable that is long enough. I get my cables at amazon.com their prices are the bomb.
Connect them together both ends to lap top and to tv then make sure that you have a line in jack stereo jack with RCA ends hook that to the back of your tv and your lap top in stereo jack even better to your surround sound system. Set your TV to AVI 1 or 2 or DVI or whichever is your connection start a movie on the lap top and turn your sound on and see if you have a picture on your screen you should have the same thing as what is showing on your monitor on your lap top. Adjust settings and have fun!

WIFI not working with Linksys wireless-g broadband router/Comcast


Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.

Although cable to desktop connects to internet, my router from desktop to laptop via router won't connect.


Desk top to internet is OK.
How about Destop through Router connection to Internet OK?
Assuming you want to connect wireless from Lap top to Network, need to configure correctly for wireless in Router.
If you connect Lap top to router by wire and it didn't work that mean your router is bad.
