connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet. Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port! good luck!!
The bars on your laptop or iPhone means that you are connected to the router! Not necessarily to internet. Your internet depends on ISP Internet service provider and modem which connected to your router. To check if you have active internet connection connect your laptop directly to modem provided by your ISP with ethernet cable and try to open a internet browser IE or Safari or Chrome or Firefox and open a webpage! If you are able to connect internet by this mean you have internet connection active. Now disconnect your lap top from modem and connect modem to your Linksys router using WAN port of LINKSYS! Its good to power off and power on (power cycle) once on modem and router to make it work!
Having a good wireless connection, does not mean you have an internet connection. Go into the router and click on status and see if you have an internet connection active on the router. You can click on setup in there and start again for settin g up your internet connection, you will need the username and password giving to you by your Internet Service Provider when you originally signed up with them
It's just a wireless interference problem. All you need to do is change the wireless channel of your router. Login to the router's admin page and look for wireless channel under the WIRELESS tab. Change it to channel 11 and save the settings. That should solve your problem. You can play around with different channels and check which one is the best for your environment. Good Luck!
