Have had many time problems with the router:

Do the following: If you have a router and a linksys modem do it to both.
Disconnect the power source from the router and disconnect the ethernet cable wait about 30 seconds .. plug back in the power sources (do not just pull the plug that goes into the wall...... remove the black little cord that plugs into the router)
In some cases (if the above doesn't work the first time..) you may also want to completely unscrew the coaxial cable from your broadband provider ) and wait 30 seconds or a minute and follow through with the unplug resetting..
Note: there are also reset features on the back of your modem and router.. it never hurts to use those once in awhile

on router.. there little button that pops out in the back .. just hold it in for 2 0r 3 seconds and release..
on modem... SEE that tiny little hole between the power supply and the ethernet plug.. carefully insert a paper clip into the you won't get electrocuted.. and GENTLY push the reset ...
Hope this helps.

Need drivers

You do not need an installation CD to setup your Linksys wireless router.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on thislink and follow my instructions :-

I have a linksys wireless router and I connected to router but when I try to go to a web site I get the error not connected to the internet

That only means your router is not properly setup.
If you still have the cd that came with the product , just ran the cd and follow the instructions.If you dont have a Cd , you can setup the router manually by logging into the router web interface.
The address of the router is No username and password is admin. ( this is the default)
Once you get inside the router page, just setup the unit based from your ISP settings.
If you want a walk thru on this step, it would be good to call linksys techsupport at 1800linksys.

I have an Linksys router that is a few years old and I can't find the setup cd. Can I still set up a wireless network with it.

You can download the manual for your router from Linksys. You don't need the CD to setup your router in any way at all.
Once you have read and understand the manual just access the routers setup page by typing into Internet Explorer just like you type in a website address, a small GUI window will popup asking for your username and password, as long as your routers password has not been changed the username and password for Linksys routers is usually Admin for both.
Make sure you set your wireless up securely by using WPA encryption, it's all in the instruction manual and very simple. Linksys also has a live chat support on their site which is very helpfull.
Here is a link to the Linksys support page, just put in the model number of your router and it will take you straight to the download page:

No CD need to set up Linksys Wireless G Router

Router setup
You do not have to use the cd. Follow these instructions:

Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
