I am unable to connect to the Linksys WRT54G Router with wired connection to Office XP.

My two laptops (XP and a Win7) will be connected to the router wireless and wired (ethernet). When it is plugged directly into the DSL modem, the Office connects and works very well. This problem started when I had to replace the DSL modem.

I inherited this problem for my elderly mother... and it all started because they gave me the router password wrong, who now works (router has been reset) on two laptops, but when connected, the Office doesn't even show a light of connection on the router except during startup. I no longer get a window of logon passwork for the router, and I am unable to connect/ping the router in the office. (


I would like to clarify a few things.

1. two laptops work fine with cable connections and wireless through the WRT54G.

2 desktop PC, which has only a wired connection, does not connect successfully.

3. the symptoms of the failure of the desktop connection to are that the link on the router at the start light flashes during initialization of the PC but then will Dim.

4. when the desktop PC trying to connect to the internet, it fails.

5 when the desktop PC try to connect to the administration WRT54g page it fails.

6. when the desktop computer try PIING the router at IP address it fails.

These points are correct?

Assuming this is correct, open a command prompt and type


The output of the command should provide some information about the current state of the network connection.

It would be useful that you posted this here release.

The absence of a link light can be your main symptom and may be due to several reasons. He probably has an associate status "media disconnected" in IPCONFIG for the network connection.

This could be caused by a bad network cable or a network connection disabled in the properties of the network on the PC. Small jets knowing the ot IPCONFIG output is would help more.

Post this info if you can.

Good luck

    I hope someone can help because I've been through the forums and I will have no chance to solve my problem.  I bought a new router (Linksys E2500) and my laptop (G60 - 228 CA) HP can detect the router but just failed to connect to the internet.

    I tried to diagnose all the problems which have been proposed, but that did not help.  I restarted the router, nothing helps.  I tried to download and install a new driver to replace the old (Atheros AR5007 802. 11 b / g WiFi Adapter) but still had no luck.

    Really not sure where go from here so looking for help solve this problem.

    Thank you


    Verify that the driver you have installed is actually that of 2011.

    If not, go to the device, right click on the atheros wireless card, Manager select uninstall and if there is a box to uninstall driver for check, check.

    Reboot and try the driver I posted again.

    If the date and the driver version is what is indicated on the driver file, then unfortunately, I don't have any other suggestions for you to try.

  • Need to modernize the modem; How do I 'plan' relocation WRT54G Router for wired / wireless

    I went late to upgrade my modem, and from what I've read in the comments, do a modem/router combo doesn't seem to be the best thing to do in what concerns the issues of reliability and range.  So, I want to upgrade my modem & then use the same router/access point that I currently have.  However, I've read other users with problems by accessing the control panel after you connect to a new modem... so want to know the information that I need to have before starting this project.

    Is this to say that I'm going to basically start early and set up my home network all over again?

    I'm pretty tech-savy... but I do not enough to really launch the project & see where it takes me... I don't have the TIME!  Laughing out loud!

    Thanks for any help/advice anyone can offer!


    Really, it depends on the type of settings that your ISP would put on the new modem. If the configuration of the new modem would be the same with the old, so there is no need for you to make any changes on the router. Simply connect the new modem, perform a powercycle by unplugging the power cord from the modem and router and it should work. However, if it is not, what you can do is to reset the router and reconfigure. The following links help you reconfigure the router after a reset.

  • C4780 problem with static IP (the Linksys WLAN router snow leopard)

    169.254.x.x is an IP address, which the printer attribute itself if it can't find the network.

    DHCP must be active on the router to connect the first time.  If it is not active, it will not connect.  Once connected, you can create a static IP address for the printer.

  • How Internet IP address with the Linksys BEFSX41 router pings?


    Does anyone know how to let my Internet IP address responding to pings from the outside with this model of router? I can't seem to find the option to set (the configurations of way more than my old Netgear RT311). I couldn't find it via Google search (all internal pings). I use the 1.52.15 firmware version.

    Thank you in advance.

    See the demo of the UI here. Change the option "Block anonymous Internet requests" for people with reduced mobility. Then the router will respond to the pings on the ip address. If this does not work once you change it, check that the BEF was really a public IP address on the internet port. Check the status page it shows what IP address the router uses on the internet port.

  • Could not save the WRT54G Router settings!

    Recently, I have reset the Linksys WRT54G Router because I can't get the page with a note to "CONTINUE", I used to have. I can also save the new setting. What comes out is a blank page. Pls help me. Thank you.

    This problem is usually caused by suboptimal communication between the computer and the router. The most common cause for this is a computer software firewall problem, but there are also several other possible causes:

    To view web pages of the router (and to solve problems "Cannot save settings"):

    You don't need an Internet connection. 'web Pages' of the router are integrated into the router.
    Use Internet Explorer, it usually works.
    JavaScript must be enabled.
    Use a computer that is connected to the router.
    In the non-working computer, temporarily disable your firewall software.

    Point your browser to, and then connect to your router. Your username must be left blank. Your password is "admin" (without the quotes), unless you changed it.

    If you use Zone Alarm, do a right-click on the ZA icon in the taskbar (bottom right of screen) then click on "Shutdown ZoneAlarm" and see if that solves your problem. If this does not work, try the following with Zone Alarm: open the control center ZAISS, go to privacy, then temporarily disable Ad Blocking and Cookie Control and see if it solves your problem.

    Some Zone Alarm users reported that the addition of to their address list "of trust" solved the problem. This trick can also work with other firewalls.

    If you use Noton Internet Security with the add-on Pack, don't forget to disable the blocker and ad blocker. Some users have reported that they needed to uninstall all Norton Add-on Pack.

    If you can not get anything to then perhaps this is not the address of the router. Go to 'Start' > all programs > Accessories > command prompt.
    A black DOS window will appear. Type "ipconfig" (with no quotes), and press the Enter key. Look at the "default gateway". It is Point your browser to the 'default gateway', can connect you to your router.

    If the above fails, unplug your modem router, then try again. If it solves your problem, then you probably a "modem-router" rather than a regular modem. A report with this problem and also specify the brand and exact model of your modem (not router) number.

    If all above fails them, turn off your entire system, unplug it from the wall, wait a minute, then lights up, then try again.

    If all the above tips fail, then reset the default router: power down the router and unplug all the wires. Wait a minute. Switch on the router, let it fully boot (1-2 minutes), then press and hold the reset for 30 seconds button, then release the button and allow the router to reset and restart (2-3 minutes). Turn off the router. Wait a minute. To connect to a computer, cable, a router's LAN port. Initialize the system. It should work.

    If you still have problems, then you must download and install (or reinstall) the latest firmware for your router. After the update of the firmware, you must reset the default router, and then configure the router again from scratch. If you have saved a router configuration file, DO NOT use it.

  • Linksys WRT54G broadcasts simultaneously two wireless signals.

    Everyone knows the Linksys WRT54G Router broadcast two signals?  I did a wirelss security reset in my modem the other day and changed the name of the SSID broadcast.  Now I have the old and the new SSID broadcast at the sametime.  When I go into my router I see that a new figure.  My problem is that the new SSID I created is encrypted with WPA Personal and older SSID broadcasting still is not encrypted, anyone can jump on the signal.  The older SSID has been initially encrypted in WEP... I can't understand this.  Can anyone help?

    FYI... the new SSID signal is very strong and the most original is weak.

    I turned on MAC filtering wireless in order to prevent anyone with a laptop that is close to my network.

    Your router can broadcast only one SSID. If you have changed and configure WPA Personal then that's for sure.

    The unsecured "linksys" network is your neighbor. If you check the web interface of the unsecured "linksys" network you will see that it is another. See the status page.

  • HP Deskjet 3050 - unable to connect to the WPA secure wireless network


    My first post here so please excuse any misstep on my part.  I bought this HP Deskjet 3050 a week ago and have since been war with it.  I would be really grateful if someone could possibly give advice on how I can solve this problem.

    I am unable to connect the printer to my secure wireless network, even if the other computers, cell phones, etc. are connected without problem.  I tried WPA, WPA2 and WPA2-Mixed modes with the same failure security. Specifically, the 66% reached Connection Wizard, then displays the error that the wizard can not find/network printer.  If I disable the security, the printer connects very well.

    I use a Linksys WRVS4400N router with firewall and associated firewall disabled settings.  The router broadcasts on 802. 11 g / N mixed mode.

    I install the software provided on the CD for installation on a Windows XP SP3 System.  I confirmed that the PC and the printer are connected to the network are the same.

    The issue as well, if you will allow me: I have not yet tried these drivers, but I see there are any updated drivers for the printer in date from 14/12/2010.  The release notes indicate the improvement of networks, but do not develop beyond that.  Does anyone know if there was a known problem with the connection to secure networks that has now been corrected?

    Finally, just a note that I am partially blind and using a screen on all systems reader.  I'll try my best to be as helpful as I can to please forgive me if I can't find the settings, etc. on screen and sometimes need help for a little more detail.

    Thanks in advance for your help, I really enjoyed.

    Have a nice day,

    All the best for now and take care,


    It is not the fact that it is impossible, is the fact that this was not done, yet.


    first of all, my apologies for the delay getting back to you.  Poor health means that I had little time or want to do great thing on the side of the computer of htings.

    In any case, I am please to say the problem with the HP 3050 failing to connect to my network is now resolved.  There seems to be a bug with the installer, and that seems to include the version the most recent publication Dec 2010.

    To resolve this problem, I did the following:
    1. disable all security for the network options, so it's just an open network.
    2. connect the HP 3050 to the network by using the installation wizard. This time it connected OK for me.
    3. Locate the IP address of the printer.  I used the table of customer list accessed by my router interface. You may be able to get this through the printer on the menu screen, but as I am partially blind, it wasn't an option for me.
    4. Enter the control panel of the printer to http://ip.address.of.printer for example
    5. under Advanced options, configure the network settings, including the password and the Security Protocol.  Don't forget to enter the SSID of the network exactly as it is configured on the router.
    6. apply settings, disconnect from the control panel of the printer.
    7 log in the router configuration panel and re-apply the security options.  Make sure they match these match those entered for the printer.

    I hope it will be useful to others in the same position.

    Thanks again for your time.



  • How to get the IP address Linksys WRT54GS DHCP assigns to a Wi - Fi connection?

    To connect the Linksys WRT54GS to a demonstration of Microchip DV102411 WiFi Comm card I need the IP address assigned by DHCP. The Administration WRT54GS log is enabled, but there is no incoming or outgoing network activity. The DV102411 can see the SSID linsys scanning for wireless networks and attached to it but once attached, I need to know the address IP of the DV102411 has been given by the WRT54GS.

    You can consult the router DHCP client table.

  • Add WRT54G: second router / access point, unable to get to the outside network.

    Here is the prob:

    We just got cable internet the other day and the cable operator insisted on using their v1000 Belkin F5D7234-4 instead of my WRT54G V8. So I thought I'd use the WRT54G as a second router/AP (without wireless/LAN/WAN). I was eager to do this by running an ethernet in the WAN on the WRT54G port and plug it into the port of the client on the Belkin, place the wrt - 54 G at the other end of the House and have the WRT54G broadcasting the same SSID and require authentication even as the Belkin and use the Belkin to Linksys Wireless Bridge. In this way, it will extend my wireless network and all computers can access the internet and the other (wireline customers will keep at wire-speed, wireless is not authicate to two different networks.)

    I can't get the Linksys network based able to see all the other computers outside the WRT - 54 G, even for wireless clients. On the side of things Belkin network, I can't ping the router even if she pulls a DHCP in the Belkin address. All customers the Belkin side can meet and thin internet. I've fiddled with the WRT54-g for almost an entire weekend now with no result. The WRT54G can see the other router as a DNS as well as external DNS providers, but none of the client computers can. Basically, I'm wanting to extend the network of Belkin 4 as most cable customers and fill a few dead wireless, and make the visible computer on the same network of suggestions?

    Parameters of WRT - 54G:

    Automatic configuration - DHCP

    Same domain name like Belkin
    IP router set a tire to the DHCP server

    DHCPserver OFF

    Mode of operation: router

    Safe are disabled.

    Wireless SSID is the same as Belkin

    Wireless channel is the same as belkin.

    Method and auth. key is the same as belkin.


    DHCP is on.

    15 IP addresses available.

    Wireless gateway is on with the WRT54G Wireless MAC address information.

    Ethernet cords are connected.

    I played with static routes for hours, tried the option routing dynamic, even tried DMZing of the WRT54G intellectual property in the belkin and still unable to connect to the internet. Tried the Belkin MAC address cloning. Nothing seems to work. When I plug the WRT - 54G directly in my digital/Modem/phone cable box, I get internet and everything. I'm at the point of throwing same DD - WRT on it.

    But beyond connection "wireless" I discovered really does not work if well (drops random wireless speeds seize up) with two different pieces of equipment running two different firmwares. So the thing connecting wireless set was out the window.

    I however knew what I had to do Linksys firmware:

    1.) DHCP clients forward.

    Customers of Belkin - network

    Linksys customers - network B

    The dhcp pool was not get transferred to the client computers. That is the 1-2 on network computer had XXX. XXX.100 - 102 for 3-4 computers on network B was YYY. YYY. YYY statically set by Windows. Even after changing to a static address on the network A dhcp scope I could still connect to the internet or to one of the computers on the network.

    The static routing table seemed not lead me anywhere either, and I've tried dozens of configurations.

    The way I got it Setup is with the customer enthernet of the Belkin ROUTER to THE Internet on the Linksys WRT54G port 1-4. Maybe I should have plugged the ethernet on the client side of 4 ports Linksys?

    Anyway DD - WRT redirect DCHP feature was what I need.

    Regarding the scenario wireless two routers have the same encryption method and key but different channels and ssid. Who, with DD - WRT for some reason when I jump on the wireless-B, Vista will be ID it as network A (B).

    I hope that it has not violated anything except the guarantee which was anyway. The reason for which I needed for my network up this way is because I do a lot of work using VM (of various operating systems), is simply easier to have two separate semi networks. (to different physical locations in the House)
