WRT54G only "Local Connection" No Internet Access

Hello,

 

I have some issue with internet connection and Router WRT54G. There is always "Local Connection" but no internet access. I checked that at two different laptops. One with Windows Vista and the other one with Windows XP. Both the same problem. There is a wireless connection with excellent signal strength but no internet access.

I added a screen shut to see the Router setting. If more needed I will add more.

How can I solve the problem?

Can you connect via wired connection?  Cable or DSL?

Please make sure that your internet connection is working directly from the modem first.

 

Please check the links below to how to setup the internet connection with your router:

Re: WRT54G only "Local Connection" No Internet Access

I'm trying to setup the router for internet access. I used the link below:

But it seems some options are not the same as in the link description. I have no option to set the IP Address (No Release IP Address button). I added some screenshots.Cisco WRT54G-Status.jpgCisco WRT54G-Status.jpgCisco WRT54G-Local Network.jpgCisco WRT54G-Wireless Status.jpgCisco WRT54G-Internet Setup.jpg

Re: WRT54G only "Local Connection" No Internet Access

Your router is not getting an IP address from the modem, so try out the following:

 

Be sure that the WAN port of the WRT54G is connected to the cable modem.

 

Unplug both the modem and the WRT54G.

 

Turn the modem on and allow it to fully establish a link with your ISP.

 

Turn the WRT54G on.   You should have internet access once it boots up.  If not, check the Status page to be sure there is an IP address in the Internet section.  If there is no IP Address, you may need to provide more information about your modem and ISP.

DHCP release/renew = same with IP address release/renew. If the IP address is still 0.0.0.0, click IP Address Release and then click IP Address Renew.  If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then reboot the computer.
