    I just brought a WRT54G router, and on the installation stage #8 on the setup wizard CD, doesnt go any further. it just keeps "checking PC" all the cables are plugged in correctly. I did have a Netgear router before this if it matters, please help me out :frown:

    i wasnt sure where to post this thread since FAQ was locked sorry if i missed posted

    I'm trying to just set up a home network thats all, and all the lights lit up, but theres no internet connection even tho it says LAN connection@100Mbs
    I tried inputting the 192.168. but it doesnt show up.
    But when i plug the cables back into the netgear router, the internet works.

    What OS? If you turn on the Linksys router and run a cable from a LAN port to the NIC on the PC, it should lease a DHCP address that you can see using the 'ipconfig' command at a DOS shell prompt. Use that to browse the web interface of the router. It's probably

    This may be as simple as turning off the cable modem, turning off the Linksys router, then powering up the cable modem and letting it come up completely before turning on the Linksys router.

    Thanks you guys, but im going to return the router. Because the main reason i brought in the first place was to replace the old router which i couldnt set up a wireless security and allow the laptop in and get full access (yes i set up the same SIDD, same code, etc.) it connected but would stop getting bandwidth after like 2mins. but i found a old adapter and i upgraded the firmware and now its working fine.
    But thank you again for your help, if i do get another Linksys router in the future and run into problems i'll be sure to ask you guys :biggrin:
