20 Most Recent Cisco Linksys WRT54GS2 Wireless-G Broadband Router Questions & Answers


Hi Sir James,

I see you are having issue with your smartphone pulling up internet from your Linksys Router.

What browser do you use on your smartphone and is there an Error message when you try to pull up the internet on your smartphone?

Have you tried checking the wireless settings on your Linksys router to check for any restrictions? and is there a password for you to connect to your wireless router? if there is try to remove the password/security and test to see if your smartphone will be able to pull up the internet with no issues.

Also in your Routers Wireless settings check if there is a setting that allows the router to be detected all the time also on your smartphone make sure that on the Wi-Fi setting the phone is set to be detected by other devices, cause if it is set hidden then it may cause issues on your connection from your smartphone to the Router.

What smartphone do you have so we can check both devices for setting concerns that may hinder in getting the proper internet connection from the Linksys Router.

I believe other devices can connect to the Linksys Router with no issue such as a laptop maybe, if possible maybe you can try another device that has WI-Fi and try to connect to your Linksys and check if there will be connection issues, also if possible you have a friend that has a smartphone of a different brand model and see if his or her smartphone will also have the same issues connecting, if so then the issue is not on your smartphone but most probably is on your Routers wireless settings.

Try resetting the Linksys Router back to factory defaults then try connecting and see if the issue will still be the same or if it will work from there.

I hope this can clear things a bit.

DHCP and static IP are two different things. DHCP assigns IP addresses, and static Ip just means that the IP address stays the same, and is not dynamic. You probably need to reset the modem to accept what it sees as a :"new" router. Turn off both router and modem. Restart the modem first, give it a minute to boot up, then turn on the router- in that order. It should be ok now.

First, use a lan calble to reach the router. Then check the settings on the router and see what ip address is assigned to your laptop. Also check the password setting on the router. Try using WPS as an alternative to setting up the password, etc. WPS will work with either a pin number or push button. It should solve your problem. If not, then use the first solution, although it may be a little more complicated for you. Last thing you can do is go to into Microsoft's network and sharing center, and choose "manage wireless networks" and make sure the adapter is "enabled".

You might not need the CD; try logging into 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0. If it's so whacko'd that you can't log in, you might try a hardware reset; look for the reset button on the back of the router. Hold it for 30 seconds. Power off the router (unplug power) while still holding that reset button for about 30 seconds. Power it back on, still holding that reset button for another 30 seconds. That should pound it back to the stone age. Then you can log into it (with a blank login field) and with the default password, "admin". From there you can change things if necessary. It should

You don't want to open those ports, you want to forward them in the port forwarding/port triggering section of the integrated setup utility. You can find this by opening a browser connected to the device and simply typing http://192.168.1.1/

Judging by the port numbers you listed, you are trying to setup a VPN tunnel to a corporate network. If this is a client based VPN, you actually don't need to open these ports at all, given that the router will allow all traffic outbound, by default. However, if you are trying to build a site-to-site VPN, your Linksys router isn't capable of this.

Now, I suppose you may have a device inside your network, behind your router, that is running some VPN software of some sort. In which case you want to turn on port forwarding. This can be a complicated task. Please comment, if that is the case and I will go into more detail.

Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

It does not require software or drivers. Your ISP modem connects to the main (yellow) port. Then you PC connects to any other port. That's it. You are setup.

open a web browser and go to 192.168.1.1 There is no user name and the password is admin.

On the back of the router will be a small hole with a button inside that you can depress. You will need a pin or paperclip, etc that will fit in the hole. You need to have the router plugged in and turned on to do this. While it is on, press the button and hold it for 10 seconds. You will see the lights blink on the front of the router, when this happens let the button go and the router will begin to reboot. After it comes back up it will be back at factory default settings.

From the computer you are trying to configure the router from. Make sure you have an ethernet cable plugged in from the computer to one of the four numbered ports. You do not want one plugged into the wan/uplink port, this port is to be connected to your cable or dsl modem. Also open a command prompt, press the windows key and type "cmd" <enter> then type "ipconfig" <enter> scroll up and look for an IPv4 address it should start 192.168.x.x. If it starts with 169.x.x.x then your computer did not aquire an IP address via DHCP. If it shows as 169.x.x.x type "ipconfig /renew" <enter>. If it tells you, you don't have permission click windows key > All Programs > Accessories, right click on "Command Prompt" and click "Run as Administrator and repeat the last step.
Comment back if you need more assistance.

It sounds like you are trying to use a security system that is not supported by Apple hardware. I'd say go and try WPA or WPA2, as WEP is known to cause a few problems for Apple products. WPA2 is far and away the safest to use too.
