Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

Wireless G and Comcast cable internet

I try the steps you have posted about internet connections with the wireless g router, but I can still not get connected. The network is fine, it has a strong signal, just can't get connected to the internet. I do the DHCP release thing, power cucle, etc...still no internet. Does Comcast have some kind of monopoly on internet sharing too?

    Correct. I can connect to the router wirelessly. I can get online easily if I wire in directly to the router. I think I fixed it myself last night. When I wire directly to the router and get online, I go to Linksys internal page at 196.98.1.1 or something like that. I clone the settings. When I check status, there is an IP address there. I disconnect the cable from my laptop/computer and it stays connected wirelessly. I don't know what I'm doing, just trying to use logic, and it seems to work. Problem now is when I try to set some kind of WEP encryption everything gets disconnected and wiped out. I have to turn everything off and hit the reset buttons on the modem and router to get back on.

Im not sure about the monopoly thing?
But it must the settings that is causing a problem.
If I understand you concern correctly your computer is connecting to the router wirelessly, is that right?
and can you get online if the computer is wired directly to the router?

    alright lets try first to connect to the router without a security let's make sure that we will be able get internet access to the router via the wireless.



    Here what we will try first, go back to the router internal page (192.168.1.1) and go to the wireless tab at the top.change the SSID or Wireless network name to any name that you want to call your network, also make sure that the SSID broadcast is set to enabled this can be seen in the same page. then save the settings.

    Now on your laptop, Im assuming this is running on win xp. right click the wireless network connection icon at the lower right hand side of your screen and select view available wireless network. Now you should see the name of that you set on the router. and try to connect to it. once it's connected, right click again the wireless icon and go to status. click the support tab at the top and check the IP address you should get a 192.168.1.10x and the address type should be set to Assigned by dhcp. If all of this is present and you were able to do this things you should be able get online wirelessly. If not just give me updates about it.

This can be caused by a number of issues most have to do with the router itself and not the tablet. First, let's make sure the router DHCP Server is not frozen so take the following steps:
Step 1: If the router is separate from the Cable or DSL Modem, power down the router/wireless, next power down the cable/dsl modem. Power up the cable/dsl modem wait 60 seconds then power up the router/wireless wait 2 minutes
Step 2: Try to connect to the wireless
Step 3: If you have a modem or wireless router supplied by Comcast, Verizon, AT&T or any major carrier, contact them asking them to walk you through resetting and rebooting and updating the firmware to the router/wireless.
Step 4: After the reset and update try to connect, if it fails move on
Step 5: Log into the wireless/modem - let's change the wireless encryption. Go to the wireless settings, change the wireless settings to WPA Personal and add any pass-phrase. Try to connect using the new pass-phrase.
Step 6: If you still can not connect, as a last resort switch the wirlesss encryption to WPA for testing. Try to connect, if this works contct the vendor and have the modem replaced.

Connection


Hi Susie
With related to your particular issue it seems like that your broadband modem is not configured for the router. There are basically 2 types of connection. DSL and Cable modem. Verizon, ATT are DSL and comcast other providers give you a normal cable broadband connection. If its comcast make sure the cable from the comcast modem is going to the internet port in the linksys router and also make sure that there is a system connection the linksys router and the cable from the system goes to any of LAN 1, 2, 3 and 4 ports. Then reset your cable modem by using a pin and inserting to the reset hole in the modem. You could use the same step to reset your linksys router as well .If its a verizon or dsl connection you need to put normally your username and password in the router page. here is the link to how to configure linksys for your internet modem.
Here is a video as well on it?
