Question about Linksys (WRT54GC) Router
I set up WRT54GC wireless router, by connecting via cable, and running the CD that came with it. I then went onto the net 192.168.1.1 and set up the security settings. I then removed the connecting cable and the thing simply won;t work. I cannot even locate it. Have searched for help on the net on this for hours at this point but have had no luck. Can anyone tell me in simple language what I need to do!
Who is your internet Service provider? if it is cable then go to the same 192.168.1.1 page and do a MAC address clone. Enable it first and click on Clone. Make sure tosave your settings below.
Make sure you have an ip address on the Status tab to the far right before removing the cable ethernet wire you used.
If it is DSL change your local ip address to 10.10.10.100
and perform a powercycle.
means switching everything (modem, router, and PC )off for 30 seconds.

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.
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.

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.
