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..

Try connecting your laptop hardwired with your Router, check if you are able to go online. if yes you dont have a dns error, if still no , try this out, click start run and type in the words with in the quotes "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt"and click ok..a black window will pop up and close then restart your pc ..try connecting it again ..all the best

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.

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?

Cannot connect my wireless laptop. my desk top works upstairs but not my wireless laptop. can you please hellp me. My address is lucent11@tconl.com OR lucent11@peoplepc.com Thankyou Philip Avino


Hi Philip, Is the desktop PC you have upstairs hooked up to the network via a cable or is it also wireless ? Do you have a wireless access point router ? If so, what is the supported IEEE Standard...
Wireless means you don't have to hook up to a network via a cable, but you do have to have a Wireless Router hooked up to the network to enable you to transmitt and receive a signal to your wireless products.

I'm a little confused how to install this router I just bought. Model #wrt54g2. do I put the cd into my desk top which is already connected to the internet or do I install the cd in the new laptop I just...


Hi sheena -Is your desk top hooked up throgh the router? If not, plug your modem into the wan port on the router. The router should have come with a couple of short cables, most likely blue and yellow. Use the blue to connect your modem to your router. You can check the manual just to be sure. Use the ethernet cable that had been connecting your desk top to your modem, and plug into one of the wired ports on the router. I imagine you'll be using wireless for your laptop. Make sure that it is on. Put the cd in your desk top and run from there. Follow the directions. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. If this solves your probleb PLEASE rate this as fixed. Remember. Need help? Just holler Sheena.

Question on setting up two computers


Yes, I have pretty much the same setup at home. Wired desktop and wireless laptop. On the back of your wireless router, there should be 4 or 5 wired connections which you can use. You will only have to use the setup disk on one computer. Basically, the setup disk is for the router, not the computers, it simply guides you through the router configuration process. You can also do this manually, the manual for the router will give those instructions as well.

Well if you want the prints to go through the router and into the printer First, set the printer up for sharing by going to printers and faxes right clicking on the printer choose Sharing Choose share this printer and give it a name, then might have to get a wireless usb for the desktop at a local Wal-mart and the laptop should have wireless, when you get that stuff connect to the wireless network, go to start, printers and faxes, in the left side toward the top you will see a link saying add printer, let the wizard start hit next, choose the bubble beside A network printer, then hit next choose browse for printer hit next it will say searching for printer wait till a list of printers come up and choose the one you want the computers to use.
