Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

2 Answers

DNS problem? I have my router hooked up to my desk top and wanted to use the wireless feature on my laptop. My laptop says that it is connected yet there is still no internet connection. I ran a diagnosis and it said that there was a DNS error (problem with the domain name). How do I correct this, or is this even really the problem? Thank you.

I fixed this issue with my router maybe it will help you.. i have a wrt54gs router but usually similar issues occur between these two models.. first log on to your router.. through your internet browser by typing 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.2 then type your routers user name and password.. usuall this is givin to you on the back of the router or with the box it came with.. the default username and password is usually "Admin" sometimes the password is "password" or "password1" once you have logged on to the router you should see the main setup screen look around and try to locate the part that says "ip-address" usually by default this is set to 192.168.1.1 on some networks though this is not correct because there is now a conflict between the ip-address and the dns server... it simple to fix just change the ip-address to 192.168.2.1.. then save your settings and your done... you may also have to set a dns-ip as well for this just input 192.168.1.1 and then save wait for the setting to take effect and disconnect and reconnect this should solve your error in most cases..

I would suggest getting a wireless router. one that supports the security on your laptop wireless card...then you can still hook up wired on the desktop and you can set up the wireless security and connect wireless to your laptop.

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.


Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button


Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example: 192.168.1.xxx

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

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.

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?
