Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Failed To Obtain IP Address
Sep 26, 2011
I tried many times to connect my ps3 to the internet/playstation network so far no luck. The router I'm using is a linksys WRT54G v 2.00.8. I have no problem using my WII, PSP, or computer to go online but my ps3 cannot connect to the internet.url...The errors I might sometimes get is "failed to obtain IP adress" and most of the time I get something with unable to connect to internet server when I am able to get the IP address
I was thinking maybe I shold reset my router to default settings but I'm not sure what's the way to do that or update the router? This problem also has been happening for a week now. In the previous weeks I could easily connect to the internet with no problems and all of a sudden I cannot connect anymore and this has happened a few times already in the past where I am unable to connect to the internet with my ps3 for a few days to a week.
2 days ago, my laptop was connected to my router and working fine. But it then randomly disconnected and haven't been able to connect back since. I am using an ethernet cable to access the internet, and have tried many ways to try and resolve the issue but nothing is working.
I have a Dell L501x (Win 7 64-bit) with the Intel Centrino 1000 BGN wifi card. I have restarted the router and modem and disconnected all devices and tried reconnecting, but to no avail. I have tried updating the drivers, system restoring and using safe mode (with network) but nothing works. The modem and router are working fine as other devices connect and access the internet, it is just my laptop that cannot.
I am sure it is not a hardware issue as the card detects all the surrounding networks. The troubleshooter only says "An administrator profile failed to obtain an IP address from the DHCP server.
I've had my WRT54G for a year few now andhave the occasional problem, were I end up powering off the Modem and the WiFibox to get a connection.So having a week of I thought I should tryand update the firmware and see if this solves the problem.I have a WRT54G Ver 2.0 and am running Win7on my main machine with IE9.I Downloaded the firmware update(FW_WRT54G_4.21.4.000_20110712), and while the update was loading I got a errormessage about Update not taken, this was while the Progress bar was about 3/4through, I click OK and waited a while to see if the progress bar moved anymore, butafter 10 min nothing appear to have happen. So I powered the box offand on again.I appear to be able to see my other PC andmy NAS drive but the WiFi and the broadband connect was gone.I reconnected my PC to the Broadband andlooked for a connection, but none that I’ve found seam to work. I found a referenceto a TFTP utility, but all the links on your site appear to be dead, so I haven’tdownload it from anywhere else in case its different to your.
I'm attempting to upgrade to firmware 5.00.38 for my WRT54G-TM router, but it keeps telling me "upgrade failed" after like 3-4 seconds of trying. It says I currently have firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (06/13/09) mega - build 12288. I've tried restetting to factory defaults before upgrading, but doesn't work.

I tried to upgrade firmware (I entered my model number WRT54G and hardware version 2 into Cisco menu and downloded the upgrade file they provided. My version was v2.02.7, downloded file FW_WRT54Gv4_4.21.5.000_20120220.bin . After I run the upgrade it said upgrade failed. After that I can't connect to internet and can't access the router. I tried to reset it and unplug it- no luck. From my PC control panel I see local area connections status connected, but as I said, it does not connect to Internet.
I've had the adapter for a while now, successfully running on XP SP3 with the linksys software. I could see networks, connect to them with WPA security and get an IP address. I recently tried uninstalling the software, then connecting the adapter to install only the drivers and let windows manage it. Since then, I haven't been able to acquire an IP address. It can see the SSID and connect to it, but continually tries to acquire an IP address. I've tried this with different SSIDs at work and home...same result. I've tried uninstalling the driver from device manager, but every time I restart and connect the adapter, windows recognizes the adapter. I probably made matters worse by connecting another adapter to it, in an attempt to work around the problem. That is a USB adapter, WUSB600N. Tried the same thing, but continually tries to acquire an IP address.
A few days ago I lost connection to the internet. The Status on the 54g does not show an IP address from the WAN(cable modem)If I connect the cable modem directly to the computer(wired) I can get online no problems. I can also access the 54g through 192.168.1.1. (wired)But if I connect the Cable modem to the 54g....no Internet This was my bootup.
1. Unplugged both cable and router.
2. Plug in cable wait for solid lights
3. plug in router wait for lights
4. plug in computer...connection established to router.... No Internet
Much of the time my wireless printer is offline relative to computers on my LAN because the IP Address has been changed to some value different than what the computer thinks it should be. So I have to figure out what the IP Address is of the printer then modify the printer port on the PC to point to the correct address. If this only happened rarely or if I could easily remember the steps I have to take to remedy the situation, I guess this would not be such a big deal. But it happens a lot and I'm old and alzheimery. So my question is: how do I get the router to assign the same IP Address to the printer all of the time?
I've got a WRT54G v6 that is password protected via WPA2 Personal TKIP+AES, and SSID broadcast enabled. In the Status menu > Local Netork > DHCP Clients Table there is a MAC Address listed that none of my devices have.
I wanted to know if you can setup reserved wireless IP address on the WRT54G router. With all the kids devices, when I reset the router, getting all the devices online is a challage. Some end up with duplicate IP address causing conflicts. If I could reserve an IP address for a specific device. Let me know what option the router has?
Currently my Version 2. linksys wireeless router wouldn't reset it's IP and will NOT connect to the IP listed in my ipconfig,
I'm paranoid that it's something I've downloaded... even though that I'm always careful not to get anything off mistrustful websites! As soon as I download Kill Bill for my gf everything just goes straight to.... ! Would a file even be able to dis-able a router wireless capability? None. of my computers are infected but this is still seriously questionable.
I press this **bleep** button daily for 30 seconds and nothing is reset. My default gateway will not connect and the IP from webpages that show users their IP fail
I'm not sure if I should update the firmware because even if I could my ip.... doesn't persist
Currently i have multiple computers that are connect via lan with ip addresses(static) that are connected to a cisco router. My question to you, how do you assign more ip addresses to computers on the lan.
I bought a Linksys WAP610N today, i placed it so i could get a signal where i can't normally.
The thing is i configured it correctly, well at least i think, i can see it on my wireless network, with a good signal, but on my Android tablet (Google Nexus 7), it can't get past the "Obtaining IP address".
I called the technical support, the person there tried to assist me for about 1 hour, we tried different settings, we upgraded firmware from 1.0.01 to 1.0.04, but it didn't worked. Now he said someone will call me tomorrow during the afternoon.
My router isn't Linksys, it's a Netgear, i don't have wireless problem when i connect my tablets or any other wireless device on it, it's just that i bought this WAP610N to have the signal in my bedroom, where i don't get any signal normally.
My new EA4500 (fw ver 2.0.36) won't obtain an IP from a Brighthouse TM502G cable modem. The EA4500 replaced a functioning WRT54G which would obtain an IP from the ISP. I've tried upgrading firmware and have used both straight-through and crossover cables between the EA4500 & TM502G to no avail. The EA4500 would issue IPs to it's clients, but not obtain one from it's TM502G. At the moment, all 3 are daisy-chained together with the old WRT54G in the middle in order to make the EA4500 work. Both WiFi and LAN ports function in this configuration.
My set up is a 2wire router that connects to the internet, with an ethernet power plug connected to it. Over the other side of the house, I have the other ethernet power plug connected, with a Netgear router in access point mode.The main router is on 192.168.1.1, and the access point is on 192.168.1.3. The DCHP server is enabled on the main router with range 192.168.64 to 192.168.1.253. The access point has the DCHP server turned off. The routers have the same APN and security (WPA2-PSK).Also, the wireless channels don't overlap, channel 1 and 11.Now to my problem:The internet always works fine for a few days when the routers are turned on. But at some point between 1 to 3 days later, every computer can't obtain an IP address while connected to the access point. But all computers can connect to the main router (i.e. when closer to the main router than the access point), and then go near the access point and it keeps the connection. If I reboot the access point, then everything works again for a few days.
Small company, under 10 computers, wired and wireless printers, straightforward network. Do not need (nor particularly want) Smart Wi-Fi, Cloud Connect, or or anything other than a simple manually-setup router. Have a new EA6500 I plan to use replacing an E1000 that is playing up (needs to be reset every morning) connecting to Verizon east (former GTE) aDSL. Connected the EA6500 to a laptop via ethernet, changed router password to same as E100, set up the two port forwards I'll need (IPs on the internal network are static in the 192.168.1.0/24 block), changed DHCP server to start at 101 (don't ask), leave Internet Connetion Type setting at "Automatic Configuration - DHCP" (same as E1000), shut down both routers and modem (Westell WireSpeed 890-210015-04). Connect EA6500 to modem, power up modem, power up router, and...Nothing. Does not receive external IP via DHCP.If I switch back to the E1000, it immediately picks up the IP lease.
I'm trying to connect my Xbox 360 to Live by bridging my computer's wireless connection. I've done this before for a friend in a different city and it worked fine, and I felt very proud of myself for doing so. However when I try to connect here, the modem won't assign my Xbox an IP address. I've been into ipconfig/all and tried to manually assign the same IP address to the Xbox but to no avail. Same deal with the alternate MAC address option.
To speed things along here's the readout from my ipconfig/all:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601] Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. C:UsersSamsung>ipconfig/all
Why I must restart my e4200 after 2-3 days when I want to connect my device like notebook or phone to the router. After restart my device can obtain the ip. I hardly to turn off the router.Is something wrong with my router ? [code]
I coulden't visit any websites and it gave me an "error 105" something. So i tried connecting my other comp to the internet cabel with the same result. So i tried to find a solution on the web (wierless internet still worked) and stumbeld upon a similar problem were the answer was to manually fill in an adress in the "internet protocol version 4" properties in the "local area connection" properties. I then noticed that i dident have the "Obtain DNS server address" set to automatically and that the other manual boxes were empty. I then turned the auto on an i had access to internet. Is this safe? Cause i read somewere that DNS server addresess were provided by the company that provide you your internet service, and that you can be redericted to a fake website that can get a hold of your account information on it
Anyway, I have an hp desktop pc, running windows 7, with high speed cable connection.. Im attempting to obtain a new ip address.. but when I go to command prompt, and type in ipconfig/release, I get an error telling me that "No operation can be performed on Local Area Connection 2 while it has its media disconnected"
I have a netgear wireless router, not sure on the model but can find out if required. My xbox360 is hard wired to the router and my Laptop is connected wirelessly to the router using the internal wireless connection on the laptop. The other half has a laptop too, for some reason her will not connect wirelessly, just gets stuck on a constant loop of ''aquiring ip address'' and does not get past this point. Laptop works if hard wired to the router. how do i get ip address to assign.
I have a Lexmark Professional X7675 that will not connect to my wireless network saying "unable to obtain IP address". This printer was previously connected to the wireless network with no issues. I did a reinstall on my computer and a reset of the printer network settings but still it will not connect to the wireless. The SSID and the WPA are both correct.
I just got the motorola droid 3, my first android device. I'm trying to figure out how to get my device to connect to my network as it won't obtain the IP address.I have a Motorola Surfboard SBV5120 Modem and a Microsoft MN-700 router. I just switched from the Palm Pre Plus which connected perfectly to this network, the network is unsecured and has 2 pc's and a 360 running on it. I was able to connect to my friend's wireless network fine at his house.
My Fujitsu Siemens AMILO XI-1554 RTL8169/8110 ethernet will not obtain IP address on any other LAN, except my home network. The adapter is set to obtain IP address automatically. I have updated the drivers using the Update Driver option on Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit.
I have an Avaya IP Phone for work. This has been tested at work and works as expected. After the IP Phone boots it's able to obtain an IP address from work. At home when I plug the IP phone into my DIR-655 router, it's unable to obtain an IP address. Other network devices are able to obtain an IP address, for example any computer or laptop. Also my wireless works with no issues expect for the IP phone. I've already done some searching and found other users with the same issue but I haven't been able to find a solution other than setting a static IP address. I'm curious why this relatively new router won't work with an IP phone. I've played with some of the router settings but it didn't make a difference. Any work around to get the DHCP to work? I'm running the latest firmware for my router: 1.35A Hardware Versions: A4.
I have installed about 2 days ago one Cisco WCS 2504 and 11 APs. Everything is doing well regarding to WEP authentication. But I have a Radius Server that is alson running with some issues on wireless:
- Unless I open network settings and click connect on that config I cannot obtain a valid IP Address; - Roaming is not working also;
what application/service is sending out net bios broadcasts on a network segment the requests are for machines that no longer are on the network but something is trying to obtain there ip address as they are not in dns any more i am assuming this is why they are resorting to netbios broadcasts i need to some how isolate what application or service is trying to find out.
