Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Router/ modem I,m looking to replace wireless-G cable gateway. I want to replace with an "N" and make sure it is capable for 20 meg speed on a cable broadband connection. All I can find so far is the router. I wanted to stick with the modem with router is that still possible in the "N" or do I need to do something different? Libby

Your modem shouldn't need to be replaced unless your modem isn't handling 20 mb speed. You could update it to a newer modem the is running DOCSYS if your cable modem hasn't been replaced in awhile.

You can test your connection by going to this website

Check with your cable provider and see if your line is setup for that speed already.

    Thats only what the modem is rated but there aren't any guarantees that you are going to be getting that speed all the time. You will have to check with your provider on that. I know I have to pay extra on my Comcast service just to get 8 mb.



    They could even swap out the modem for you.

The range and speed coming from the router isn't great considering how much we are getting in and paying for. Anything we can do or is this the routers maximum capacity?


Depends on the router. Many routers will never handle the alleged speeds you get from the cable or U-Verse as far as the wireless goes. And, the device you are using is more limited than the router. If you go to one of the broadband test sites and check your internet speed, that shows the speed of the modem. If you have an integrated modem and router, you would still not likely get the same speed throughput from the wireless side. 15 Meg's on wireless is pretty fast.

How to set up my router to get speed by ISP? I have 80/25Mb/sec speed. The router access only 15/15Mb/sec.


Are you measuring while using an Ethernet cable between your computer and your router, or while using your "wireless" adapter to wirelessly connect to the router?

Re-cable your system, to temporarily connect your computer directly to the cable-modem, bypassing the router, and then measure the speed. If it still is "low", then telephone your ISP, and get them to trouble-shoot.

Otherwise, the router is capable of receiving at up to 100Mbit/second, and its "wired" ports are capable of sending to your computer at up to 100Mbit/second.

Does your computer have a "Wireless-G" (54Mbits/second) or a "Wireless-N" (more than 108Mbits/second) network-adapter?

Belkin 54g Router won't connect to internet.


If you can access the configuration page of your belkin router you have to copy the MAC address of your computer to the router. The router has the capability to clone the MAC address. It's because if you have a cable internet connection the MAC address is registered in the server.

Want to get more speed out o my fiberoptic broadand


Well the best router for your connection type would be WNR2000. Even Virgin media recommend this router for their 20 and 50 Meg connection. I am pretty confident that this router will meet your requirement with this ISP connection.

Hope this helps.

Internet Resets When Phone Rings


Logon to your router and change the bandwith you're using you might be on the same bandwith as yor phone, so when you get a call on your phone, the wireless router will get interupted,
thats if your phone is wireless !
if it's a cable phone your splitter might be bad :D

hope this helped oh..
almost forgot

on how to acesses your router.

go to run dialog box in your start menu. then type in CMD to the box
then you'll get a DOS looking command prompt, Type in IPCONFIG

then look for Defualt gateway, looks somthing like this

192.164.1.1

tpye your defualt gateway into your http bar (the top bar you tpye www.lol.com in)

then you'll probably get a box with a logon name and password. the defualt for it is

admin
admin

or

admin
password

then after you've logged on you can look for the wirless tab and change the bandwith you're broadcasting on.

if you still cant acesses or cant find how to

go to portforward.com then lookup your model and it will show you what to do :]

So how is the other computer supposed to work on the internet, if this wireless router is hooked up with the current modem? If I need another part, then why did I spend $150, and not get all I needed??


Before you bought the wireless router, you probably had one computer directly hooked up to the modem (the box you got from your internet provider). The wireless router should have come with a cable similar to the one that had previously connected the modem to your computer.
When you use a router, the original cable from the modem is disconnected from the back of your computer and is instead plugged into the INPUT of your router. The cable that came with the router is then plugged in to the original computer.
So far, so good.
Now, when you want to add additional computers to the internet, you can do it in two ways: either wirelessly (which means the other computers need to have wireless capability already built in - which is the case with laptop and notebook computers, or they have to have a wireless card installed); or you have to purchase another cable (like the one that came with your router) to directly connect the other computer to the router.
The only time an additional cost would be involved is if you needed to purchase another cable (for a direct connection), or if your other computer doesn't have wireless capability.
Does that answer your question?

Can only get a 10 meg when connected via cable to srx 200


The speed of your wireless adapter maybe up to 54 Mpbs only, check the wireless adapter that you have if it is 802.11 G its set to 54 Mbps only however if your using 802.11 N the speed of the adapter is around 300 mbps of connection.

There's a settings on the router that you can lock WAN port speed to around 10/100/1000

Note: To have a 300 Mbps of connection you should set the wireless settings of the router to WPA2 and AES with bandwidth of auto 20/40
