    Greetings,

    I have a WRT54G Router. I have 2 computers. On the computer that is hardwired to the router via ethernet card I have Internet access (cable modem), all seems to be working fine, except that when I try to connect to the router via 192.168.1.1.... to set up the wireless portion of the network...I am unable to ... the browser times out. I can not PING the 192 address either... request times out. It's a Win 98 machine and the setup was working perfectly a month ago... we got a new computer and unfortunately a family member with no clue screwed around with the win 98 machine to try and get her new computer's wireless connection working. I fixed the 98 machine to he point that it HAS access to the internet via the router (hardwired), but it cannot see the router via the browser at the 192 ip adresss. Also, when I run the CDROM that came with the router it says that it can not find the router. The new computer has a wireless ethernet card and is unable to see the router, but I have the card working properly as I can see my neighbors wireless router!
    Thanks for any help!

    go into start and run and open winipcfg when you're internet is wokring on the wired.
    check the ip address of your defauly gateway, make sure thats the address you're trying to connect to...
    try giving the router a hard reset (hold down reset button on bacl for 30 seconds) ... also try from another pc if you can make sure no one installed any kind of firewall or anything that might be blocking that address..
    see if any of that helps...

    Have the same problem. Took me until today to figure out that my daughters computer with the wireless usb do dah has been unable to connect due to my router. For reasons known only to God and perhaps Comcast, I think my settings have changed. I connect fine but not her and I am unable to get to 192.168.1.1. Have tried a reset without success. I'm new at this so what may seem easy to you is confusing to me. Appreciate any help.

    i had the same problem and im running on windows 98se. what i did was unplugged my ethernet wire from the router and put it back into my cable modem. then i ran the setup from the cd and followed the steps.. for some weird reason it only seems to connect to the ip of the router when you run setup :?

    Well, This I did (in fact did it on both computers) and keep being told that setup is unable to communicate with the router, please try a reset. I've reset this thing a zillion times....

    Sigh.

    hi,

    standard value for the routers ip is: 192.168.1.1/255.255.255.0

    1. check your pc´s ip (cmd-window: ipconfig /all)

    - did you get an ip through dhcp and ist it in the range 192.168.1.0/24 ??

    - ping the 192.168.1.1 is it sucessful ?

    if there is no ping and no adress received by dhcp reset your router

    by pressing the reset button 30 seconds, after that power off and on...

    check your pc´s ip again (could try ipconfig /renew to get a new adress from the dhcp server)

    after reset the router should have 192.168.1.1/24 and a dhcp-server running...

    try that and post your results...

    greets

    zaphod

    My problem is even worse.
    I installed the wireless network card, set the TCP/IP settings as requested in the manual, and when I switch on the computer the router or at least a network is detected(linksys) but there is no way i can connect to it. When i select the network and click connect the only thing that happens is the red cross on the taskbar icon disappearing but still indicating network not available. And off course connecting to 192..... is impossible as well.
    I have only a wireless network card so no hardwiring for me.
    System is running on Win XP-pro .

    HEEELP.

    try to do a hardware rest on the router by pressing the reset button continiously for 15-20 seconds then do the setting of router again if using PPPOE. U can try to access 192.168.1.1 after reset & see if can access it.

    Probable solution for Deelite1

    I had the exact same problem until yesterday morning after almost 2 weeks of messing with configurations. I believe that your problem is the same as mine and is that the setup instructions are wrong. The Linksys Wireless Monitoring/Configuration Program is incompatible with Win XP Pro. It took 3 phone calls to Linksys support to resolve the problem.

    Try this:
    1) Uninstall the Linksys Wireless Program (I think you can do it from the start menu)
    2) Insert your wireless network card (mine was the WPC54GS)
    3) Reboot your Notebook
    4) Login making sure you are using an account with admin rights
    5) You should see a balloon saying New Hardware was detected
    6) I think you click on the balloon to launch the Windows install driver wizard
    7) Insert the Setup CD now and let the Windows Wizard install the drivers from the CD
    8) I believe that you should be able to launch your browser at this point and access the Internet.

    Let me know if it works.
