    Hi,

    I have a new WRT54G but I have trouble to get it working:
    - I can access the 192.168.1.1 page from my desktop that is connected with a blue cable to the router
    - I can access the internet from my notebook over the wireless connection
    However:
    - the Linksys setup program on the cd says that it can not make a connection
    - from the desktop I cannot access the internet

    I have no idea were I should look for a solution so any help is welcome.

    Thanks,
    musicmaster

    ^ He's using a wired connection on the desktop, not wireless.


    1. You don't need the CD. Use a web browser and goto the IP address of the router, which is 192.168.1.1 by default.

    2. Check the network settings on your laptop. Specificly the Internet protocol (TCP/IP) settings. If your not sure what I'm talking about goto step #3.

    3. Click on Start button. Click on run. Type "cmd" (without the " ") in the box, then hit enter or click on okay. In the window that comes up type "ipconfig /all" (without the " ").

    I need this info to see if you have valid network settings.


    You should see something like this, although the numbers you see will be different then mine.

    What type of connection to the internet do you have ? Cable or ADSL ?

    If ADSL, were you running an ADSL client on the desktop before installing the router ?
