I hope this will help. goodluck
I too am having major difficulties getting my network up and running with the new Linksys Wireless-G Router WRT54G!
I have 2 computers hardwired into it. They both see the network, and are able to use the internet. (Verizon DSL -modem Westell Model 6100.)
I have a laptop (brand new) that was able to see the wireless network and can use the internet.
I have 2 desktop computers that I am trying to set up to be wireless in an upstairs bedroom, that I have installed Linksys PCI adapters in. They both can see the network, and both show they are receiving a very good wireless connection...but CAN'T get onto the internet.
This problem has been going on for a week now and I am ready to use a sledge hammer on this router! I have been on the phone with tech for days, always following their instructions and each time....my call gets disconnected! At some point, they ask me to hold on to ask one another for more information on this problem...and bang...my call gets dropped. Then I call back, wait on hold for years and finally get through again. I have called Verizon and they tell me it's not the modem, it's the router.
I have tried it all. Reading through the previous posts, I am going to double check some of the the things I have done..and perhaps I have just skipped over something obvious. But this is making me absolutely crazy, and waisting sooo much time! I have even spoken to local tech friends who tell me they aren't sure what it is?
I think it h@ssomething to do with the Dns, or ip address. I have tried the release, renew... and that hasn't worked. I have uninstalled their software and walked through my computers commands on installing the new hardware. I have gone into the router and tried to change the configurations, uninstalled Norton in case it was conflicting. Taken down firewalls, you name it...I have tried it.
I can easily say.... I'm not a techie...although I would love to be that knowledgable about all of this! I just keep reading forums, calling tech and am trying desperately to get this connected.
If anyone has any other ideas, I would really love to hear them!!!!
