Question about Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless Router

1 Answer

When I try to connect my router to my laptop, the 321 error screen appears after about a minute. It says my ethernet cable is not plugged in properly, but it definitely is. Even the connection lights on the router itself are lit up. I don't know what's up.

This is a well documented problem with linksys routers. Go to google and type in "error 321 linksys". You will have to manually configure the router as stated on the linksys forum posts.

Error 321 linksys WRT120N

Are you trying to run the CD that comes with the router ?
You get this error when your computer is not able to connect to the router.
Actually you can say that it is a bug in the CD.
Even if your computer is connected to the router, it will say that it is not connected.
You can set up the router manually without the CD.
make sure that your computer is connected to one of the Ethernet port on the router.
Reset the router for 30 seconds. wait for 1 minute.
unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
Wait for a minute and try to set up the router manually.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

error 321 or 322shows that the cable is not connected to the router and the computer.
That is actually a bug in the CD. Even if the cable is connected it shows that it is not connected.
You can set up the router manually, without the CD.

Error 321 'ethernet not connected' on LINKSYS WRT54GS

Dont go with the error , i came across such instances on a few occasions while users were installing it from CD . (Sounds lamme?right)
Try doing the set up manually , by accessing the web Gui of router .
***FOLLOW THIS********
The GS comes set to 192.168.1.1 as its factory default and with its built-in DHCP server enabled. So all you'll need to do is plug in a client that's set to obtain its IP address information automatically, maybe do a DHCP release / renew (or reboot your client computer), and enter the default password into the login box that pops up. If all goes well, you'll get the main Setup screen.
The Internet Configuration Type selector automatically refreshes the browser screen to present settings appropriate to the choices of Automatic Configuration - DHCP, Static IP, PPPoE, PPTP and Heartbeat Signal (for Australian users) Internet connection types.
MAC address cloning gets its own page in the Setup section, as does setting up either dynamic DNS service from dynDNS.org or TZO, setting up static routes or disabling NAT features and converting the GS to a non-NAT router.
The interface is generally quick, with quick mini-reboots needed to get the changes you make on each page to take. Multiple admin logins are allowed, with no warning given when two or more admins log on. Once you're logged in, there's no idle timeout, and you just need to remember to quit your browser when you're done, because there's no logout button.
Enabling Remote Management for the first time still pops up a message telling you to change the router's default password and you can now enable secure (HTTPS) admin access. You can also change the default remote admin port from 8080, but can't restrict access by IP address or domain. Also of note is that you can't reboot the GS from the Admin interface.

Let me know if you require any more assistance.

Start up

First, see if your firewall is not blocking the connection.
If it is, add the connection as a "safe" or "authorized". It depends on the software.
Also, check if your IP address is set properly.
