How do i hook up

First of all, we all know that wifi means Wireless fidelity. So we can use it on our phones. it's like a wave. but when we want to connect our pc which doesn't have nic card then we have to use wire which connected to wifi\router. By the way, if we want to hook up a wireless router to a cable router we have to take some process. as like connect the router and the modem with an Ethernet cable. Most routers come packaged with a short Ethernet cable that you can use for this. otherwise, the isp provider gives us a short cable for pc and laptop when the internet connection complete with the router. then we can easily connect the wireless router to a cable router. Once the cable router is finished syncing-up and the cable router should provide an IP address to the wireless router.5d43bc0c-29d6-4430-ad46-65709aae9a2d.jpghttps://www.allhdd.com/networking-devices/router/

I need to complet my router setup

Have you secured your Linksys from unauthorized access?
The encryption code protects your wireless router from unauthorized access. The wireless card in your computer/laptop needs to be configured with the router's encryption settings before the computer/laptop can access the router.

Adding a printer

Unfortunately this model of router has no support for directly connecting anything other than a printer that already supports Ethernet.

Since that's not the case with most consumer printers you will need to buy a "Print Server" These are made by all the main manufacturers, and come with a collection of interfaces, USB / Parallel of the printer, and Ethernet or WiFi of the network side.

They all pretty much do the same thing so go for one that meets your needs.

If my advices was at least helpful, please vote for me!

Cannot connect xbox 360 to wireless router

If you use DSL I would also check to make sure you are not being port blocked by your ISP. Some will block you if you exceed bandwidth on a particular port rather than throttling you or shutting you down entirely.

Limited of no Connectivity when using wireless connection

Unless you are going to use the wizard then the CD is not required.

Can the others see the network? (Start, connect to, show all connections). If they can then you're half way there.

Have you enabled any type of security on the router? If you have then be sure the others are set the same.

Slowed internet connection using wireless router...


Wired connections are faster than equivalently wireless connections (from/to the same node) and so your
experienced is quite normal.

Additional nodes divide the original bandwidth and denigrate the performance, which is why one tries to
maximize the original bandwidth (speed in MHz) of the connection to the gateway.

You can maximize your experience by having critical systems wired to the router, and this also provides
greater security than any encryption (which is another brake on your speed) necessary for a wifi

Make sure you have the fastest possible wifi card in your portable devices to maximize your speed.

Linksys wrt54g SRX200. I can connect to my router

It appears the connection between the Linksys and the modem is not working.
Try a different LAN cable.
Check the LAN cable from the modem to the Linksys, it should be connected to the WAN/Internet port on the Linksys.

I just reformatted my dell 8400 and lost my Linksys g router conn

After reformatting your dell 8400, did you reinstall all drivers of your devices? The linksys router won't be affected by the reformat. Your computer should still get connection from your router. This is a dell issue. If you have another computer connected and working with the router, that means the router is still functioning. Call Dell or linksys technical support. If they cannot help try this http://technicalsupport.blog.friendster.com
