My laptop and my iphone indicate that my wireless-g broadband router is putting out a wireless signal; but neither accessory works on the network, even though the bars are entirely full on the devices.


The bars on your laptop or iPhone means that you are connected to the router! Not necessarily to internet. Your internet depends on ISP Internet service provider and modem which connected to your router. To check if you have active internet connection connect your laptop directly to modem provided by your ISP with ethernet cable and try to open a internet browser IE or Safari or Chrome or Firefox and open a webpage! If you are able to connect internet by this mean you have internet connection active. Now disconnect your lap top from modem and connect modem to your Linksys router using WAN port of LINKSYS! Its good to power off and power on (power cycle) once on modem and router to make it work!
good luck!

It happened because the router automatically resets to it's default settings. Maybe you accidentally touch the reset button or the device was shaken to restore its default settings. Go ahead and check the router configuration. Or maybe the wireless switch of your router was turned off. Better check that as well.

I have a DI 624 router which is being used by laptops in our house but when i try to find the wireless network on my iphone, ipad and other computers I can't see the network, can you please help? thanks


Did you set the router to _NOT_ "broadcast" the SSID?

On the iPad/iPhone, under Settings, did you "enable" the WiFi?

Does the iPhone detect wireless networks at an Internet Cafe' or a Starbucks or a Public Library?

Did you configure the router to allow only specific MAC-addresses?

Can you view the "log-file" on the router, to see what computers tried to connect?

Please help...internet won't connect


You may be running into a problem of your ISP only allowing one computer on the internet. while the internet is on can you access the internet from the desktop comcast originally setup?  If so that is more then likely your problem.

I have comcast myself and they told me they do not allow home networks. I fixed that problem by using the mac address cloning feature in my router.

The setup cd is also junk, all you should really need to do is:
1. unplug modem, router, and turn off computers
2. Plug modem into router
3. Plug computers into router (don't worry about wireless right now)
4. Turn on modem, wait 20 seconds or so for lights to set,
5. Turn on router. again wait for lights to set
6. Turn on ONE computer that is hard wired into the router
7 Try to surf the net.
8. If successfull try to connect wireless computers (Without using cd) and see if they surf.

If not call comcast and see if your computers are trying to obtain real-world ip's instead of LAN ip's like they should.
If so, you'll need to enable DHCP on the router.
