Question about SMC Barricade g SMCWBR14T-G Wireless Router (SMCWBR14TG)

1 Answer

Tried to upgrade firmware. It accepted everything, I can connect locally through wireless. But the "Internet" status is constantly set on "Disconnected". I have reset the router, modem many times and also reset the modem to factory settings. The most I can do is connect to the router "locally". It's like it doesn't even know the Internet is plugged into it any longer. I think I might be f*cked.

Did you have DSL prior? if so, was the MAC address cloned to the router? You may need to check that setting, its pretty common with this type of setup

Looks like your device does not support playing router for cable internet. Would recommend you get an actual router, or alternately if you have a computer with two network adaptors you could plug one into cable modem, plug other in to LAN side of router, then configure turn Windows Internet Connection service, will need to disable the DHCP service on the router. I highly recommend you get a real cable/dsl router to do this tho. Linksys 54g series has been one of my favorites. Router homepage on SMC site.

SOURCE: Using Wireless + PPPoE at the same time kills router. SMCWBR14-G2

From your description, I am assuming you have a direct ethernet connection from an RJ45 connection in a jack in the wall. If this is the case, then you would just need to purchase a wireless router (linksys, D-link, netgear, etc). Connect the ethernet connection from the wall to the routers internet or WAN port. You will need to access the routers firmware configuration and set it to connect with PPPoE, so get your username and password from your ISP if you are not sure what it is.

You will be able to continue to have the PC plugged into the router with an ethernet cable, and then run the laptop with a wireless connection, just be sure to configure the laptop with the security key if applicable.

If you were using a software PPPoE connection on your PC, quit using it. Just set your network adapters on both computers to DHCP, and you should be good to go.

Hope this helps

The first thing that I would try is power-cycling the router to see if that helps at all. This involves unplugging the power cord for about 10 seconds or more and then plugging-in the power cord again.
If this doesn't resolve the problem, then there may be a firmware update for that router. Apparently there are four different revisions of this router on the market, so you will have to determine which revision you have by clicking on the "Support Resources" tab of the router information page.
The directions for figuring out which rev you have are available in the link to the FAQ on that same tab.
Be VERY careful when upgrading the firmware. Most importantly, do not upgrade the firmware over the wireless connection -- hook your computer to the router using an Ethernet cable!

Try the following steps:-
1)Connect the computer using an ethernet cable and check the internet connectivity and then go into the router's setting's page and change the wi-fi setting's on the router by changing the channel and security and also enable the wireless router radio from the setting's itself.
2)If it did not work then Upgrade the firmware(drivers) on the router to the latest one available.

Power Light Blinks, can't communicate with Linksys Network Adapte

Seems to be a common issue among these routers. If you tried to upgrade the firmware via wireless connection then it will generally fail. It is recommended to upgrade through the wired connection. In most cases if the upgrade failed and will not reset, most likely the firmware on the router has been damaged. Your best bet is to purchase a new router.

Linksys WRT54G2 connects wired but won't connect wirelessly

I don't think it's a problem with the ip address of the modem or the router since you got internet connection on LAN. I suggest that you try the basic wireless setup without any security etc and see if you can connect. If you can, then maybe it's the WEP setting that is causing the problem. The other problem could be the configuration of the firewall on the computer. You can disable all firewall on the computer and try to connect.

firmware reflash:

if the router's SSID is not broadcasted even though it is on "SSID Broadcast enabled" under the wireless settings, you may need to reflash the router's firmware if a HARD RESET did not work.

Hard reset:

this is pressing the reset button on the router for 25 seconds, unplug and replug the power cord while reset is still pushed, then let go of the reset button once the power is plugged back in.

Firmware upgrade:

Click here to get the steps needed to be done.

if this still did not work, you may want to contact Linksys tech support at 1-800-546-5797 for further troubleshooting or an RMA depending on the status of the device.

I upgraded my Linksys WRV54G firmware from 2.39.2 to 2.39.2e and completely lost internet connectivity

hi there,
have you tried to reset your wireless router so that the default settings are being used, then try reconfiguring it again for your Internet connection.. then try to connect wireless again ... sounds like your router may have lost its settings which happens for some firmware upgrades.....


Wireless Interferences
Neighboring wireless networks or any appliance that operates on the same frequency as your wireless device (e.g. 2.4 GHz) may cause interference and therefore may affect your wireless connection and signal.
Common sources of interference are:
  • Neighboring wireless networks
  • Microwave ovens
  • 2.4 GHz cordless telephones
  • Bluetooth devices
  • Wireless baby monitors
To solve the problem, change the channel and SSID on your Access Point. Preferred channels to use are 1, 6 and 11 since they’re considered non-overlapping channels.
