Linksys Wireless Router :: Software Download For WRT54GS?
Jul 2, 2007
I need to reinstall my WRT54GS but can't find the original disk. Is there someplace I can d/l the install software? I can find the firmware updates but I think I need more than that to install the router.
I lost my Cd for the router. I have the Linksys WRT54GS V7.2. It works if I hook my computer & x-box up to it. But the problem I'm having is not being able to make it a secure network to keep my neighbors from pinging off of my internet. I know when they come home everday without looking out my window. My connection goes from great to I'm not sure my page is ever going to load. This just started when they got two or more laptops.
I just discovered that my wireless download speeds are 5Mbps, compared to 16Mbps if my laptop is connected directly to the modem or wired through the router. Uploads are 2Mbps either way. I have a WRT54GS v.6 with firmware version v1.52.8 which I updated today, completed by setting factory default through the router webpage after I discovered this discrepancy. The firmware update did not improve the download speed appreciably, if at all.Should the wireless connection be that much slower than the wired connection through the router? If not, what sort of issues could I be having to account for this?
I did just replace my modem when I discovered I was having erratic speedtests and that corrected that problem. That is when I became aware of the wireless issue, so not sure how long that has been the case. I have Charter's 16/2 HSI, living in a sparsely populated area with solid internet service. There is no external nor internal interference on this 2.4Ghz band.
I have a Wireless-G broadband router WRT54GS and have figured out how to enable logging.This gives me the IP addresses, but I would like to be able to easily see the FQDN so I can see what my kids are looking at on the web.Is there a way to get that information via the built in logging feature?If not is there a way to take the log file and run this through sometype of program that will generate the FQDN's?
I have a 2wire modem connected to the Internet port of my WRT54GS which is connected to a D link DSS 16+ Fast Ethernet switch. Without the switch, I can connect wired and wirelessly to my WRT54GS. However, when I put connect my any port of my D link switch to ports 1 - 5 of WRT54GS, I loose internet all together either wired/wireless to the router or wired to the D-link switch.I wonder why the IP Address will change as I understand that the switch is just a pass through switch.
I'm having a very difficult time getting my WRT54GS to work with my Westell 6100 modem. I've been bouncing around gathering info, and what I've learned is that the goofy way CenturyLink tech support told me to hook up my old wired router (modem line into outgoing (LAN) router port) is because the Westell 6100 is a "smart modem/router". Therefore, when I run the Linksys setup CD, it sees the modem as a router, and won't properly configure. I've also learned that the Westell modem can be "dumbed down" into simply a modem by putting it into "bridge mode", which is where I'm at right now - trying to get it reset to factory defaults and resetting the connection type from PPPoE to Bridge. In the meantime, I also reset the WRT54GS to factory defaults, and now I've got another problem: the router will not allow me to set up encryption. The default setting is "Disabled", and when I click the down arrow and try to make any selection at all (preferred selection is WPA2 Personal), it reverts to Disabled. I've also tried to change the router's IP address to 192.168.2.1 (and alternately to 192.168.1.253), so it won't conflict with the modem's IP, and it freezes up every time I try.
i have been using a WRT54GS LINKSYS ROUTER for 2.5 years problem free until now. All of a sudden i cant connect to the internet through it at all. when i diconnect it and hook my desktop directly to the modem it works but i need the wireless to use my laptop. I have tried everything to get it working again, no dice. when using w7 diag tool it reports back local area connection doesnt have a valid ip config.
I have a WRT54GS v. 7.0 w/ the latest firmware. Im looking for ways to optimize the router for best performance.There are 4-5 iphones/ipads that will connect to it. 3-5 laptopsand one xboxNo wired connections.Im using COX internet on the west coast which provides good internet service. Im not an expert with networks or routers but i follow instructions real well. What can i do to my stock/default router to take 100% advantage of its capabilities?
Factory default settings of my WRT54GS encryption are Disabled. When I try to enable WPA Personal encryption (>Wireless, Wireless Security), it reverts back to Disabled as soon as I make the selection. >Administration, >Wireless, >Encryption Function is Disabled.When I had this router set up at another location with another ISP, this was never an issue. How do I get the encryption function to be enabled?
I successfully cascaded a WRT54gs V6 router to a LinksKey wired router LAN to LAN. My concern is I get a warning on my one computer saying it is an unsecured connection. I have not seen a way to go in and make any kind of security settings. Most of the files on my main computer which is connected via the wired router are labeled as private files.
I've been having internet connection problems for the last few days and i usually do just unplugging the router and modem and turning it them back on but that hasnt been doing the job this time, its still connecting but it just says no internet access but it will connect when i connect my laptop to the modem. My router is linksys wrt54gs version 6.
Currently I have Verizon DSL and which supplied me with a Westell 7500 modem/wireless router. I am also connecting a Linksys WRT54GS (firmware Version: 7.2.08) to the Westell 7500.
When I connect via cable or wireless to Linksys WRT54GS I am not able to establish VPN connection. I get the error “Error 619: A connection to the remote computer could not be established. So the port used for this connection was closed”.
However, when I connect via cable or wireless to Westell 7500 I am able to connect to VPN.
I tried resetting the Linksys WRT54GS to factory settings and reconfigured but no success to VPN.
At work we have a Windows 2003 setup with VPN Role on it and on my laptop I am using the built in VPN connection within Windows 7.
I have a WRT54GS v1 router which is currently loaded with firmware version 2.07.1. I want to upgrade it with the latest firmware. Where I can find the latest firmware download for this model router? Linksys does not have it available on their site.
I first want to say I "think" I might be posting in the wrong forums for this question, but because I'm not really sure what the proper terminology for this is, I thought it best to ask here.
I have recently upgraded my router for my home network from an old Linksys WRT54GS G router, to a new E2500 N router. I have heard/read that it is possible to reconfiqure my old router to act as a range extender for my network but I am unclear how to do so. I think this may be the same thing as an access point, but all the FAQ's I've found seem to have this work as a solo device, not as a device on existing network. I have my e2500 setup with the modem in my study and broadcasting from there, and would like to use my old G router set up as a range extender to be located in the front living room area and picking up the network signal and rebroadcasting from there without a modem or computer attached.
I changed the router's IP to 192.168.2.1 due to the same situation as this [URL] linksys and now I can't access my settings I have tried the both pips and nothing and I can't seem to get my linksys wrt54gs v7.2 to let two computers be on the internet at the same time both can be on the network but on one on the internet
I have a WRT54GS router. Desktop works fine and the laptop wireless connection worked fine until recently. Now I cannot connect to the router with the laptop. At times I can get to the access point, but can't get to the internet. But for the most part I cannot connect to the router at all.
I am trying to upgrade the firmware on my WRT54GS wireless router. I typed in 192.168.1.1 into the web browser and got to the setup menu but there is not much on the page. There are no menu options and just some of the information is on the page. None of the menu headers are listed. Is there any way to reset this so I can get the menu to work again?
I have a wrt54gs linsys router with speedbooster. I bought my son a tablet for xmas. I cannot connect the tablet to the network. It finds my network, searches for an IP address, and then disconnects. It will connect for about 2 seconds, and then shows disconnected. My PC's, and WII work fine, although getting the WII ad netflix to reconnect after a power outage is like rocket science requiring field support every time. My tablet wont stay connected, and the book tells me that the router must accept 802.11b/g, and that if it has 802.11n, then it needs to be reconfigured to accept 802.11b/g.
I have a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router (10.77.79.1, 255.255.255.0) which hands-out DHCP addresses to my wireless/wired clients. This router is connected to the cable modem which then connects to the wonderful World Wide Web. Port 1 of this router is connected to a Cisco SG200-8 Small Business Switch (10.77.79.3, 255.255.255.0). My Dell 2950 is then connected to the SG200-8.
I know I'm doing something wrong because I cannot ping any of the 192.168.10.X IP addresses from the 10.77.79.X network, and vice-versa. All VLANs on the SG200-8 are set at their defaults (1 and Trunked?). Are there any additional configuration steps I need to perform in the SG200-8 or WRT54G?Is what I want to do even possible with my hardware?
Recently I had to reconnect my WRT54GS linksys router and now it is unsecure, obviously i know how to secure because i've done it before but it isn't letting me...Whenever I type 192.168.1.1 into my browser it will not load the page and it is really frustrating. I have also tried typing in my Default Gateway and ip address that I got from cmd/ipconfig and those will not work either..I'm not understanding why this wouldn't work, and yes my internet connection is fine and nothing is wrong with my browser..
So my desktop is wired to my WRT54GS v7 router, which is connected to a DSL modem. The desktop has full connection and gets Internet. However, whenever I try to connect devices to the wireless network, they can connect to the network, but they don't get any Internet. I've also updated the firmware, too.
My linksys router WRT54GS has defaulted its router name to a generic name. As i follow the instructions to access the set up screen (through 192.168.1.1), I only have a limited number of tabs on the SETUP screen (Basic Setup, MAC Address and Advanced Routing) - none of which provides access to the router name or SSID.
