Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router

2 Answers

Router Question I have an iMac running OSX 10.5 and am trying to set up a Linksys WRT150N router by way of a Comcast modem. I have been unable to access the linksys web base setup page as the router seems to receive the internet connection but the wireless light on the router does not light up and internet service does not go beyond it. I have tried resetting the router several times, shut it all down and re started the modem then router while all connected to the iMac. Still nothing. The Mac gets noting through the ethernet connection nor wirelessly. Any suggestions are welcome.

Hello!

-- what is the brand of your modem? have you tried connecting your computer directly to the modem and check if you can get online? If yes, Internet connection is fine and the problem is on the router if not, call your ISP first and check your connectivity with them.

-- have you tried connecting your computer directly to the router without connecting the modem to the router and check if you can access the router setup page? there are some cases where in the modem and the router have same IP address that's why you cant access the setup page of the router because of IP Conflict. Try to access the router page , router not connected to the modem only on the computer and change the LAN IP address of the router to 192.168.2.1. Connect the modem to the router and try again to shut down everything and power on the devices one by one and check if you can get online.

-- if after changing the LAN IP address still doesnt work, try to check if you can access the router page by the new IP Address. Make sure that you do not have other firewall or any security enabled on the pc. If yes, try to enable the MAC Address clone on the router and check again the internet connection. Try to configure the router with a diff computer also help isolate the problem

-- if after that and it still not working last option is to upgrade the firmware of the router. possible that there is a problem with the router and upgrading the firmware normally fix internal problem. If that still doesnt work, the router is defective.

Linksys WRT150N router disappearing from PC


If you aren't able to access the router even using the hard wired connection, there seems to be a problem. Resetting won't work. You must hard reset the router. And here are the steps.

1. Push the reset button and hold it for a minute
2. While you are holding the reset button pull out the power cable every 10 second and put it back in right away. So in a minute you would be doing it 4-5 times

Try this a couple of times and if this still doesn't work, its time for getting your router replaced from linksys.

Wireless network using usb modem


First thing that you have to do is to check if the wireless light on your linksys wrt150N is lit. If it is, then that means that it is emitting wireless signal so you can connect wirelessly.

Then, install your verizon usb mobile broadband card on your desktop. When you plug it to the usb port, a pop up balloon would show on your page which would say FOUND NEW HARDWARE. you could click on it and choose the CD-drive to install OR you can run the cd and have it install on itself.

After installing the usb, try to connect to your wireless network. Start > Connect to > and then click on the name of your wireless network.
