Hi,

Pls try to do a reset. There is a small recessed button at the rear of the LinkSys for this purpose. press this for 30 seconds.

Reseting the router would revert it to the factory defaults, will delete any and all changes you have made to the router, including any security settings.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Can i hook up wrt120n to laptop without hooking up to cable modem to fix?


Try this: Unplug EVERYTHING(related to both the router and modem). BEFORE you plug in power to anything, connect all of your ethernet. So, first ethernet goes from modem to router. Make sure they are in their proper places. Next, take another ethernet cable and attach that from modem to computer. NOW, power everything up. Google the linksys router splash page login. Im sure it'll be something like: 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or something along those lines. From there, you should be able to set up your wireless. Once thats all good, unplug just your computer and everything should be fine. If that doesn't work, its either time for a new router or you're having wifi card issues.

I had unplugged my wireless modem and now I cannot get it to connect to the internet. I tried to reboot and nothing worked. It is recognized in my computer.


Try unplugging and reconnecting Ethernet cable to modem. Reset the modem if there is a separate modem than the wireless modem (i.e. Cable modem). Your pc acknowledging the wireless modem does not mean your Internet should work, although a prerequisite... If this is no help, may need to connect to wireless modem (via http://ip address) and configure settings. It's likely though the issue is wireless modem not communicating with cable modem correctly if you have a set up like that.

I can not connect to the Internet. I have WiFi connection but can't do anything else


Plug your computer/laptop directly into router. Can you get to the Internet then?
If you CANNOT get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router, reboot your router. If it doesn't have a power switch, unplug it. Leave it unplugged. Next, you need to figure out if you have another modem for DSL or Cable. If you do have another DSL or Cable modem, unplug that device to. After 5 minutes has elapsed for both devices being unpowered, plug in the DSL or Cable modem to the power source. Keep the router unplugged from power. After your DSL or Cable modem has powered up for 5 minutes, plug your router into the power source. Wait a few minutes. Reboot your computer/laptop. Try the wireless connection again.
If you CAN get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router. Reboot your computer. Try to connect again. If you cannot connect after rebooting, make sure you are connecting to YOUR OWN wireless access point and not someone else's.
Do you have other computers/laptops/wifi devices that CAN/CANNOT connect to your wireless / access the Internet?

I can't get a connecting on the internet using the router. I lost power to the modem and when the power returned I can get the internet plugged into the modem but not plugged into the router. This happened...


If you have the router connected to a cable modem, unplug the cable modem, then unplug the router. let them sit unplugged for about thirty seconds. Then plug in the cable modem and let it boot completely up. Then plug in the router and let it reboot completely. You should see a green light under the "Internet". Then reboot the computer and see if it comes up. If it does not come up at this point, you may have another issue.

Eric, I have a wireless G and have had loss of my IP address. Call Linksys Tech and they will help you restore it again. They did that for me once and they were very helpful.

Cannot connect to internet through DI-524


After you've rebooted your wireless router...make sure you reboot the cable-company (or DSL) modem while the router is connected to it and on. The modem seems to recognize the router properly only in this way.

Simply unplug the power to the cable-modem and plug it in again.
If the cable-modem has a battery back-up you'll want to remove that as well.
