I have a linksys wireless-G router. I've had it for about 4 years and everything was fine until Adelphia's network switched to time warner. Now I can not get the router to work. It is wired correctly (I've checked several times) but I can't get online when it is hooked up to my desktop. My laptop(a mac) recognizes the wireless network but it won't allow me to access the Internet. The Internet light on the router flashes rapidly, and the WLAN light is lit but not flashing. Or at least not very often. Any suggestions?

Connect ISP modem to wireless router and then PC with cable. If that is fine you have a network. The easiest way now is to activate WPS on both devices. If this is not an option check web interface for network. Type 192.168.1.1 in web browser.
The Linksys Wireless router is fine, but your latop is not configured for DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). The computer is connected to the router at layer 2, whereas HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), sits atop the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) layer, and seems to be trying to query the ISP's (Internet Service Provider) network for a nameserver (via DNS (Dynamic Name Service) protocol) that doesn't exist on the ISP's network. Configuring the laptop for DHCP and specifying no nameserver will fix this (the ISP's network will dynamically assign a DNS).
Its also possible (though a remote possibility) that your Linksys wifi router may be configured to disallow TCP/IP virtual circuits to/from your computer's IP address - but this is a really advanced capability of your Linksys wifi router - few know this capability even exists.
Connecting multiple wifi devices to the Linksys router should be no problem, just configure them all to interact with the router using DHCP.
This is just a problem with the wireless settings of the router, you can try first to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 20 seconds while power is ON and then after that you should be able to find the default wireless name of the router which is linksys, after you reset the router just need to reconfigure it back...
Do you remember your wireless network name and the wireless security password for your router, check if you are able view the wireless network, try connecting to it..if it asks for passworg type in your password and check if nor revert back..
1st one is to make sure the ssid is not similar to other routers you are using on your profile. ie.(change it to a unique name)
2nd is to make sure you check the box that says broadcast your ssid.
3rd check to make sure you select the router as an access point and not adhoc or infrastructure option. Finally you can try to change the channels eg. i like channel 3 b/c it doesnt interfere with any phone lines.
Hold the reset button on the router for 30 second, do not let go of it after the diag LED turns off, continue holding it until 30 seconds have passed.
After you?ve done this, the router will revert to factory defaults, all of your settings will be lost. By default the default Password for the router is admin, and there is no User Name.
