Problem with wrt54g v5.

    Hello,
    I recently got home to find I was connected to my wireless connection, one on my computer, the other on my laptop, but I wasn't able to surf on the internet, go onto instant messenger at all. What could be the problem? I have SBC Yahoo DSL, but I know that's not the problem, because I connected the ethernet cord from my router that YAhoo provided to my computer, and I now have internet capabilities. What could be the problem? It sounds like a broad problem, but any insight would be great.
    Thanks

    A little bit more information might help people solve your problems for you!

    What hardware? What firmware? What O/S?

    Sounds like MAC filtering / IP address filtering has kicked in....

    How does one find out the firmware? Uhm..I'm running Windows XP, WRT54G v5. But when I try to repair the network connection, It says a problem with renewing your IP address...?

    Power everything off for 30 secs.

    Power on the router, wait 30 secs. Power on modem, wait 30 secs. Power on PC.

    Does that help?

    If not, go Start menu > Run, then "cmd.exe"

    Type "ipconfig /all" and post the output here.

    ALso, type "ipconfig /release", then "ipconfig /renew".

    Does that help?

    Hello,
    the first operation didn't work..so i tried the second one. I have a PC and a laptop, so I thought it would be best to put both of them on here. The PC is as follows when I enter config/all in the cmd.exe:

    Whats weird was, when I used the wireless card for the laptop, before, it was connected to Rickysrouter..the name of my router, when it actually worked. And I believe later, when I resetted the router, because i thought it might help, the name of the router was linksys instead.... so that might help somewhat? Well...thats all the info i was asked to give. it would be great if someone could help...thank you!

    This is interesting. Your PC seems to use 192.168.1.254 as your DNS server .. did you do anything fancy either on your PC or notebook .. or even your router which is related to DNS server? In normal setup, it should point to your router :

    pos = piece of sh** but thats besides the point now

    Get the latest firmware and do the reset thing it should fix it.

    In response to mmisnan, I did kind of do something fancy. I cant exactly recall what, but my uncle helped me through it. The actual router that Yahoo gave me, was an actual gateway, so it had an ISP of its own. So i had to reconfigure it somehow..so the wireless router's ISP took over. Sorry I dont know too much of the details.

    For t4thfavor, would i have to download the firmware to both the pc and the notebook? and how would i go resetting it? thank you.

    Rickywin,

    It is even interesting .. care to share the router that Yahoo gave you? It seems that you've two routers .. if this is the case, you may want to make the Linksys as an AP instead of router .. this can be done by turning off DHCP server on Linksys and let the Yahoo's router do the IP assignment.

    Info can be found at: http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin...nMuc2VhcmNoX25sJnBfcGFnZT00&p_li=&p_topview=1.

    Yeah..the router they gave me was a 2wire 1070-B gateway. If I let the Yahoo's router to the IP Assignment, will I still have wireless capabilities? Hmm...

    Not familiar with the 2Wire 1070B , but it seems that you could turn the modem/router into a bridge mode (and I guess your uncle has actually done that when he changed the IP from default to 192.168.0.254). The best is to get your uncle to configure your router again ..

    new firmware goes onto the router (wrtXXX) and it gets there off of a pc that has access to the routers firmware page.

    unless it has to be updated via some client software or something.
    then i am not sure. there is a tutorial on here somewhere that will tell you how to do it.

    Change the local IP address of the router to 192.168.2.1, save settings. Powerdown the router and shut the computer down. Then power up the router and the computer. That should resolve the issue.

    Sounds like you should plug the Yahoo gateway device into a LAN port of the WRT54G.

    Then disable DHCP on the WRT54G; it will act then only as a wireless Acess Point.
