Hi I am having problems connecting to the internet wirelessly using my laptop. I have a linksys wireless-g router, and the model number is WRT54G. I am able to access the internet on my main computer using the modem. I cannot even open http://192.168.1.1 on my main computer. Whenever i try to open http://192.168.1.1 on my main computer, it says that the connection has timed out because 192.168.1.1 is taking to long to respond. Thank you for your time
"I am able to access the internet on my main computer using the modem. I cannot even open http://192.168.1.1 on my main computer."
You will not be able to access the router setup page if your computer is connected to the modem. make sure you have the correct physical connections. modem should be connected to the internet port of your router and your computer goes to any LAN port of your router (port 1,2,3 or 4).
let me get this right... your desktop is able to connect the Internet but cannot connect to Router's admin page, am I correct ? If so, I would check the DNS settings on your Desktop.. maybe it's configured manually and the DNS (or Network) settings are configured to your ISP's settings. But yeah... make sure your Hardware is properly connected: Modem > Router > Desktop. You can also try pinging (from command prompt: ie ping 192.168.1.1) your router if your getting any response.
Thanks for the help so far but I'm still out of luck. The router has been working for years, and all of a sudden last night my laptop would not detect the wireless network. I tried a lot of things; factory reset, even tried to connect router to my laptop directly but could not access 192.168.1.1 Also tried to upgrade firmware with tftp but would not connect. Right now my modem is connected to router, and the internet works perfect. But no other computer can detect the wireless router and I can't load 126.96.36.199 Anything else I can try other than a new router?
If you enabled UPnP settings in router, you should see In XP an Icon showing a globe with a monitor with the name Linksys WRT54G. Double click on it and you should connect to the router. If you are using Vista, you will see a picture of a router with Linksys WRT54G. Right click on it then click on view webbase page.
If this does not work I think you will have to replace your router.
when I do ipconfig my default gateway is not 192.168.1.1 like in the past. I've released and renewed, still can't get to work. ip:188.8.131.52 sub: 255.255.255.0 gateway: 184.108.40.206 If I do a static IP, what do I put for DNS server? thanks
My desktop is connected to the internet with the modem connected to the router and the router to the PC. The internet works but the IP address is still 220.127.116.11 and can't ping 192.168.1.1 I've tried only the modem to the desktop and internet works, I've tried just the router to the desktop and laptop but can't get into settings. So right now, my modem is connected to the router and internet works great so the router is still working? But the router cannot be seen on the wireless network..I'm so confused.
