Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

I have used my router with no problem on my old computer system. Now that I have a new system I've loaded the Cd and double checked to see if it is connected correctly and an error comes up that it does not detect the router? What else can I check?

You only need the CD to setup the router. All you have to do is plug the wire into the router and make sure the network card is enabled on your computer. If you are going wireless, goto the network settings in your control panel, turn the wireless on by the keyboard if you have a notebook and make sure it's enabled in your network connections. Move the mouse over to the wireless and select scan for networks. Linksys is the wireless name by default.

WRT54GS may be more reliable router and you can continue to use it. Try power cycle first check cables! If no improvement you can reset! that will bring it factory default!
Other important matter is check the firmware upgrading firmware is a good solution for these kind of problems!
Currently available routers are much better if you are willing to get a new router N router is the way to go! They wider area coverage and faster network speeds!
good luck!

You shouldn't have to do anything to her pci-card. What you do need to do is go through the network settings and double check all of it. It's very probable that the new router, being a different brand, has a different IP number to access it than the old router did. So go under NETWORK CONNECTIONS and then check what's listed ...ie adapters etc.

Then Click on TCP/IP and PROPERTIES. Now look at the addresses. The "gateway" address needs to be the ip number of the new router... ie 192.168.xxx.xxx Some routers use slightly different numbers and the wrong number will block her from getting out. Also check the DNS numbers and yes, you will need to put in any WEP or WAP key you may be using.

I am assuming it worked before with the old router. Do make sure all the connections are where they need to be as well AND check that you are using the same Group name as you did before (in newer windows called home network sometimes).

    How do i hook up my belkin f5d7230-4 router to hughes net internet when there is only one ethernet port?


    Connect that one port to your Belkin WAN (Internet)connector (Yellow Port). The other ports go to other computers, to their Broadband RJ45 connectors.
    Here's from the manual:
    1. Unplug your existing modem’s power supply.
    Find the cable connecting your modem and computer.
    Unplug it from the modem and plug it into the gray port
    on the Belkin Router.
    If you are replacing an existing router, find the cable
    connecting the computer and old router. Disconnect it from
    the old router and plug it into the gray port on the new router
    2. Connect the new cable (provided in the box) to the yellow
    port on the Router. Plug the other end into the modem.

    3. Plug in your modem’s power supply. Wait 60 seconds for the
    modem to start up.
    Plug the Router’s power supply into a wall outlet, and the
    other end into the black port on the Belkin Router.
    As the Router wakes up, lights will come on; recheck your
    connections if the “power” and one of the “wired” lights
    are not lit up in green after 20 seconds.
    4. Locate the CD in this guide and insert it into your computer
    The Setup Assistant should appear automatically.
    If it doesn’t, open the CD in My Computer (Windows®)
    or the Finder (Mac OS® X) and double-click on the
    “Setup Assistant” icon

    My router stopped working


    Try to create a new connection.

    Chapter 1: Connecting the Wireless-G Broadband Router

    Hardware Installation

    1. Locate an optimum location for the Broadband Router. The best place for the Broadband Router is usually at
    the center of your wireless network, with line of sight to all of your mobile stations.
    2. Fix the direction of the antenna. Try to place it in a position that will best cover your wireless network.
    Normally, the higher you place the antenna, the better the performance will be. The antenna's position
    enhances the receiving sensitivity.
    3. Connect a standard Ethernet network cable to the Broadband Router’s Internet port. Then, connect the other
    end of the Ethernet cable to your Cable or DSL Broadband modem.

    4. Connect your network PCs or Ethernet devices to one of the Broadband Router’s numbered ports with a
    standard Ethernet network cable.
    21fafdb.jpg
    5. Connect the AC Power Adapter to the Broadband Router's Power Socket and the other end into an electrical
    outlet. Only use the power adapter supplied with the Broadband Router. Use of a different adapter may result
    in product damage.

    Chapter 2: Configuring the PCs

    Overview
    The instructions in this chapter will help you configure each of your computers to be able to communicate with
    the Router.
    To do this, you need to configure your PC’s network settings to obtain an IP (or TCP/IP) address automatically, so
    your PC can function as a DHCP client. Computers use IP addresses to communicate with the Router and each
    other across a network, such as the Internet.
    First, find out which Windows operating system your computer is running. You can find out by clicking the Start
    button. Read the side panel of the Start menu to find out which operating system your PC is running.
    You may need to do this for each computer you are connecting to the Router.
    The next few pages tell you, step by step, how to configure your network settings based on the type of Windows
    operating system you are using. Make sure that an Ethernet or wireless adapter (also known as a network
    adapter) has been successfully installed in each PC you will configure.

    Configuring Windows 98 and Millennium PCs

    1. Click the Start button. Select Settings and click the Control Panel icon. Double-click the Network icon.
    2. On the Configuration tab, select the TCP/IP line for the applicable Ethernet adapter.9641e30.jpg
    Do not choose a TCP/IP entry whose name mentions DUN, PPPoE, VPN, or AOL. If the word TCP/IP appears by
    itself, select that line. Click the Properties button.
    3. Click the IP Address tab. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.a443500.jpg
    4. Now click the Gateway tab, and verify that the Installed Gateway field is blank. Click the OK button.
    5. Click the OK button again. Windows may ask you for the original Windows installation disk or additional files.
    Check for the files at c:\windows\options\cabs, or insert your Windows CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive and
    check the correct file location, e.g., D:\win98, D:\win9x, etc. (if “D” is the letter of your CD-ROM drive).
    6. Windows may ask you to restart your PC. Click the Yes button. If Windows does not ask you to restart, restart
    your computer anyway.

    Configuring Windows 2000 PCs

    1. Click the Start button. Select Settings and click the Control Panel icon. Double-click the Network and Dialup
    Connections icon.
    2. Select the Local Area Connection icon for the applicable Ethernet adapter (usually it is the first Local Area
    Connection listed). Double-click the Local Area Connection. Click the Properties button.ea4fa3a.jpg
    3. Make sure the box next to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is checked. Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and click
    the Properties button.6cbaf1a.jpg
    4. Select Obtain an IP address automatically. Once the new window appears, click the OK button. Click the
    OK button again to complete the PC configuration.9297bc0.jpg
    5. Restart your computer.

    Configuring Windows XP PCs
    The following instructions assume you are running Windows XP with the default interface. If you are using the
    Classic interface (where the icons and menus look like previous Windows versions), please follow the
    instructions for Windows 2000.
    1. Click the Start button and then the Control Panel icon. Click the Network and Internet Connections icon.
    Then click the Network Connections icon.
    2. Select the Local Area Connection icon for the applicable Ethernet adapter (usually it is the first Local Area
    Connection listed). Double-click the Local Area Connection. Click the Properties button.f2e300e.jpg
    3. Make sure the box next to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is checked. Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and
    click the Properties button.dad0f1c.jpg
    4. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.076b379.jpg
    Once the new window appears, click the OK
    button. Click the OK button again to complete the PC configuration.
