Hi, I have been trying unsucessfully to install my linksys wireless
router. I once got it working for about two minutes before the connect
was closed. I have tried:
1. CD setup
2. Web based setup
3. Customer Support email and twice phone
I'm losing hope. Has any one tried to setup this configuration
manually and could help me do that?
Thanks, Rudy Magyar
I have the same router, WPA, 63 bit and no problems in setting it up or
keeping it running. I'm wired, but I share a modem with a wireless, and that
router does the job well right out of the box, and making a key. Try using
either channel or 6 or 11.
I have a linksys router WRT54G, I have a buddy who uses linksys
router. He as well as my self had problems connecting wirelessly until
he changed from a busy channel. Upgrade the router to the latest
Any particular model Linksys router?
What other equipment do you have connected? (cable modem?)
Were you able to access the internet via the cable modem previously
without the new Linksys wireless router?
Since it's brand new, this would be a great time to do a grand reset.
Power up, wait until it stabilizes, and shove a paper clip into the
reset button hole. Depress and hole for 60+ seconds without letting
go. It probably take less time than 60 seconds, but I like to play it
After it's reset, plug your computah directly into the LAN ports of
the router. Forget about wireless for now. Go direct. Can you get
to the web based setup screens?
Got what working? Connected to the router web page? Connected to the
internet? Working via wired or wireless?
Sure, I do it all the time. However, you need to stop assuming that
we can read minds and disclose some details. What works now, what
doesn't work now, and what do you have to work with? The usual
problem is trying to make everything work at the same time. That
usually screws up. Get the cable modem working. Register your modem
with Comcast using their signup page:
use the supplied Comcast cdrom. It works. After you get the modem
running and registered, only then start playing with the wireless
