Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)

1 Answer

Internect connecting System worked fine for a year. Then , last week, I lost internet on main computer which is a dierct connection and Local ISP had me change passwords for more security. During teh trouble shooting , everything including lyncsys was disconnected and then plugged back in. The main -hard wired, desk top - computer gets on internet just fine now, but my lap top, the reason I got your WIFI thing wont connect. The windows " wireless network connection" window shows : :acquiring network address" "security enabled wireless network" "this network requires a network key" Whatever all that means. I stumbled around and found a "repair" . Trying that, It seemed to say something about IP address. I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer, and not sure what to do next

If the laptop was connecting wirelessly before and you didn't change the wireless security key on the router during your troubleshooting steps with the ISP then it should just reconnect. If it doesn't reconnect you should probably delete the wireless profile that's saved and try connecting again. When you delete the wireless profile you will have to enter the security key again. Make sure you have this information handy.

If you are uncertain what the wireless security key is use your desktop that is physically connected to the router to log into the router and reset the security key.

To log onto the router you need to know the routers IP Address. You can obtain that information through the following:

START MENU
RUN
Type CMD
Click OK
Type IPCONFIG
Hit Enter
Look for the default gateway. The default gateway is the IP Address of the router. By default the IP is 192.168.1.1.

Type whatever IP Address you discovered into the address bar of your web browser (Internet Explorer for most) and hit enter.

You will be prompted for a login. If you didn't change the default login information to the router it should be a blank username and the word: admin - as the password.

Navigate to the wireless settings and reset the security key.

From your laptop key in the new network key.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa

You may be fighting an internet connection slowdown or shut down. The modem is looking for that connection and if it falls below a certain speed it shuts off. You might contact your ISP first and see if they are having issue in your area, and you can also test your speed at Speedtest.net. If t he internet is good ,then the modem may be bad and last resort, replace it.


I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

first try to check if your wireless can actually detect a network, if it can try to remove ALLthe network that you have on your wireless network and try to add your network again, if still doest work try to uninstall and re install your wireless driver, if it still doesnt work try to restart your router, if still doesnt work try to do system restore to the point where your wireless was workin fine, lastly if still doesnt work try to contact your ISP for some configuration.

Is your internet connection working properly?

The network connection to the internet may have been lost with the restore and needs to be setup again. Contact your local ISP (Internet Service Provider) and have them assist with the details to re-establish your internet connection.
