This happens due to user restrictions on your router make sure the user name and passwords.

If u forgot them u can reset the router by pressing the reset button on router. After some time the router will start and u can access the router with default passwords.

Hope this will be helpfull.

Check the wall outlet for power, using a lamp or such. If you can get a multi-meter, set the meter to Volts-DC between 12 and 20. Plug the power supply into the wall outlet and test the other end for voltage. The power supply should tell you its output so the reading should be more than a couple of volts. If it is less or ZERO the power supply is dead. If it has power, then open the router and check for a fuse. If the fuse is dead, replace. If there is no fuse or the fuse is OK then the router may be dead. Best of luck.

...love the expression about your modem...;-), but you can leave that alone. All it is doing is to convert the digital signal from your computer and router into a analog signal (telephone line).

The easiest way to set up port forwarding and open your NAT settings on the router is to go here and find the correct model of your router in the list (Linksys is almost all the way down).

Skip the ad on the next page (link is in the upper right corner.)

In the right column you will find all settings for the Xbox, also Xbox live.

On the top of the page is a link for setting up a static IP address for your computer. The reason why you should do this, is that your router needs to know to which computer it has to forward. If your computer's IP changes all the time (DHCP = Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol), you might not be able to play.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

you need to get into the routers settings and look in the menu for security and select atleast WEP security and either you type a password in to reveal a 8 digit code or type in your own mixture of numbers and letters, which will then have to be entered into each pc when they try to connect. You can also look in the SSID and remove the name or dissable SSID so as your network will not appear on anybody elses wireless searches.

I don't recommend using the software as most of the time, it either prevents a connection to the router or a connection to the internet. Sometimes both. (I've seen it.)

Instead, use Windows XP's built-in Wireless Zero Configuration (Or use Vista's built-in wireless network detection.) As long as your drivers for your wi-fi adapter are properly installed, you shouldn't have problems using the built-in connection methods.

As for the software... All it's really there to do is help you to bypass the default security of the router in order to get initially connected. I've found the software to be nothing but troublesome in the long-run.

My recommendation is to remove the Linksys software. If you are not able to connect to the router after that, use an ethernet cable to attach the PC to the router so that you can configure the router. Set up wireless security that way.

Once you have configured the wireless security, you should know what your encryption key is. (Write it down for yourself.) Use the built-in wi-fi configuration tools in Windows to seek out the wireless router and connect to it. Type in your key when asked for it and you shouldn't have any problems.

You may consider using the RESET button on the back of the router if you continue to have issues.

One other problem I've often run into is using DSL with the Linksys WRT54G routers. Some DSL modems just aren't compatible with the WRT54G routers. Primarily the older DSL modems.

For example... I had a client recently who had bought the WRT54GS router. He just could NOT get it connected to his DSL modem. Even using the Linksys software. It just wouldn't use the router as a legit gateway device. (He was connected by ethernet and could get into the router's config interface.)

I eventually advised him to contact Qwest and have them send him a much newer version of their DSL modems. (The one he had was a DINOSAUR.) They sent him a new one. Once he got the newer one, we were able to get it networked right away. WITHOUT any extra software. Just using Windows.

Also be sure to check the configuration of your wi-fi adapter in your laptop. Make sure that it is not configured with an old configuration and is set to automatically get an IP from your router. Don't use a static IP while trying to troubleshoot your problem. Let the router configure the IP of your laptop for you. It could just be something as simple as the DNS servers aren't configured properly. (You can find your internet IP and DNS servers in the router's status page, by the way.)

Let me know if you have more details that would be relevant to the situation.

If you want to receive "incoming" telephone-calls:

ADSL modem <---> Linksys SPA <---> wrtu54g <---> wired computer

and Linksys SPA <--- telephone-line-1 --> telephone hand-set

or Linksys SPA <-- telephone-line-1 --> mechanical telephone-splitter

Default backdoor passwords
On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."

WAP11 MULTI n/a (none)
LINKSYS BEFW11S4 Rev. 1 HTTP admin (none)
LINKSYS BEFSR41 Rev. 2 HTTP (none) admin
LINKSYS WRT54G HTTP admin admin
LINKSYS WAG54G HTTP admin admin
LINKSYS WAP54G Rev. 2.0 HTTP (none) admin
LINKSYS AP 1120 MULTI n/a (none)
LINKSYS RT31P2 (VONAGE) HTTP admin admin
LINKSYS RTP300 (VONAGE) HTTP admin admin
LINKSYS/ CISCO RTP300 W/2 PHONE PORTS Rev. 1.0 HTTP admin admin
LINKSYS/ CISCO RTP300 W/2 PHONE PORTS Rev. 1.0 HTTP user tivonpw
also, holding the reset button for about 30 seconds will clear the password usually.
