Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRTP54G Router
I have 4 laptops. 1 Linksys Wireless-G WRTP54G router.
The whole concept of 'network' implies that I should be able to connect to the router with all 4 of them...
- When I connect directly to the cable modem, I can get to the internet.
- One laptop is able to connect to the Router, it shows it is connected. But it seems not to the cable modem, as I have no internet connection.
- The same laptop was able to connect to the router and to the cable modem and then the internet earlier. I believe I accomplished that by turning off and on again the router and the cable modem.
- In between, and I suspect this to be the cause of the issue I used tow of the other laptops to connect to the router and/or directly to the cable modem.
So, in short the cable modem works, the router also works, sometimes the router and the modem work together and I have wireless access.
The problem seems to be in the use of multiple laptops and the switching back and forth between them.
I have the feeling I have to change a setting in the Router itself or just do a complete new set up. but do not know how to get in... I cannot find the IP address of the Router and am not sure if I need a special application to get in.
Type into IE your routers web address 192.168.0.1, or 192.168.1.1, i forget which yours is; then you will be prompted for a username and password, the username is usually blank and the password is admin, unless you have changed it.
When in the settings look for DHCP and make sure it is enabled to automatically assign ip addreses to all pc and check that all the pc's are set to obtain an ip address automatically
