Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

Connection Issue I have a Linksys Wireless network, routher. I have 2 laptops at home that connect to it, but I am not able to configure my work laptop, or any other laptop. I've typed in the network key, and it accepts it and says that the wireless network is available, but then it won't connect. My work's IT dept suggested that my router may only allow a certain amount of connections to use the router. Could this be true? How can I change this setting?

Hello There. What error message are you getting when you try to connect?

It would be better if you check the settings of your router. YOu need to hardwire the computer to the router via an ethernet cable. By default, you may access the router via http://192.168.1.1 using your web browser. No username, type admin on the password.

First, you may check the number of DHCP users that can connect to your router. On the setup page, Make sure that the No. of clients/DHCP users is set to 50(by default).

Second, go to the wireless tab then take note of your network name if you are connecting to the correct network. Under the wireless tab, click wireless security tab, verify that you are using the correct KEY.

If you are, remove your preferred networks on the computers then try to reconnect.

Hope this helps.

How to configure roaming in linksys WAP54GPE


Do you mean how to connect to your Linksys wireless router in your home using a wireless connection?
If so then -To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on thislink and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

My internet won't go wireless


routher cable must be connected to the Internet, then connect the cable routher - pc and run your browser in order to configure the connection. check that you have enabled wifi, save the settings and check if it works. Make sure that your ISP does not grant the Internet through the network adapter MAC address, in which case you will need to change your MAC address on the routhera which you used previously.

Internet Connection Problem on One Computer


By any chance, are you trying to use something other than Windows to manage the wireless adapter? If you are, remove it.

Now, Click on Start, right click on Network highlight properties, and click on manage network connections on the Tasks menu.
Your two options will be the icons for your LAN and Wireless Network. Is it enabled and without red or yellow marks? It could be disable, it could be not connected and you can't view wireless networks because the switch is off, or it may just nut see your unsecure network (unlikely).

If the above is clear, right click on the wireless and highlight Properties and left click so it brings up the Networking tab. Highlight IPv4 and click on Properties. Make sure the Obtain dots are ticked. That should work, since you are running unsecured.
If it already is, check the red X or if it isn't click OK and close down the box.

Now, back to where your Wireless card is showing, right click it and you have Disable, Connect/Disconnect, Status, Diagnose etc.

If you're still Disconnected but not Disabled, click on Connect/Disconnect. Does it show your wireless network?

By this time, it should. If it doesn't post back. The other possibility is that you take your computer to a wireless internet cafe, McDonalds, Panera Bread, or motel with WiFi and test it there.

ENET Port issue on BEFW11S4 Wireless Router


Hi!

Try these steps:

1. Make sure the wireless is disabled when you're doing that. It might cause a confusion between the wired and wireless connection.
2. Try to plug it at other ports (1-4)
3. Try another known working ethernet or CAT-5 cable.
4. Set the laptop's LAN card's speed to 10-hald duplex.

Try these and hope it will help you ;-)

Linksys Wireless-G (WRT54GS (EU/LA/UK))


I have had that issue quite often and found that when you are using a router with DSL, the DSL modem and Router IP has a conflict because they are the same number. I suggest looking into a D-Link wireless router for use with DSL.

Server connection WRT54G


This sounds like your work laptop is configured to configure the connection manually. Do you use your wireless at work? If you do not use your wireless at work, then you need to open your network properties (WINDOWS XP, click start button, then right click on "network places" and select properties, then right-click on your wireless card and select properties). in the middle box, double-click on the TCP/IP properties, and in the box that opens, select the button to "configure my network automatically". Do the same for the button at the bottom (DNS). This should fix the issue. If you do use your wireless at work, then you will need to remember (put into notepad and save to desktop) the settings that are in there already, and then set the same.

Hope this helps. If not, then I can get more in depth with you.
