Hello: My Linksys Wireless - G router failed

Hello: My Linksys Wireless - G router failed yesterday this is 2nd time in 4 years since i bought it. I did the normal power up and other tests to confirm it was not the modem or computer at fault. My question is would it be better to purchase a new router than go thru the hassel and expense to reconfigur my existing one? thank you

I had this same router, and experienced this and other issues. Finally I just replaced it, and have been issue free since. Although Linksys is a widely known and used product, there are quite a few folks out there that are experiencing the same issues. That being said, I would recommend replacing it. D-Link is actually a really good router, and they are considerably less than the Linksys.

Hello My wireless-G router quit working. This is


Personally, I'd probably go for replacing the device, and then use the failing one to experiment with third-party firmwares like Tomato and DD-WRT.

Wireless network has disappeared


Sadly they do go, sounds like you've tried the best solutions. You can try 1 more, power cycle everything, this time, hit the little reset button on the back of the router, and see if you can connect through wifi after if. If not, sounds like it's fried. Use a surge suppressor on your modem, router, all that good stuff, lightning can easily take electronics out if you don't have the proper protection.

Save yourself some time, go grab a wireless N router for under $100, the increase in range alone is well worth the investment.

Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router Issue Allows 1 Computer at a time


Your router my not be DCHP enabled or it might not be assigning the IP addresses either.

I would do a reset and start all over with your security settings and see if that works. Worst case scenario you could always turn security off when your parents or others are there.

LinkSys router early deaths


Your cable modem has a ip address of 192.168.1.1 and your router probably has the same ip address. Hook your computer up to the router and change the ip address to 192.168.9.1. On your router change the router mode to static ip address mode. Then you will need to know your username and password from you cable company, and the Domain Number. Then connect the cable back to the wan port from the modem and the other end to the wan port of the router. Connect the computer to the first lan port on the router and type 192.168.9.1 go to the status page and tell it to connect.

Your cable company is giving you one ip addres and have to pay for another for more than one computer. What are you doing is using the router to receive the first ip address and distrubting out to the other computers.

Hey, need help here. Got linksys wireless-g


the great thing about the linksys brand is that they are owned by cisco and they will walk you thru the set up no matter when and where you bought that thing and they will spend all the time it takes to make you happy with the product. although the person you speak to will be in "new deli" india so they may need to repeat them selves many times.
have you tried access the router interface page with the computer hook directly to the router NOT wirelessly.???
I think I remember the linksys access page is at 10.10.10.100 in your internet explorer tool bar.
