Why is My Linksys Router not Connecting to Internet?

I have a Linksys e2500 router. When I connect to my cable internet modem, it shows connected and the wireless is active but the internet will not connect. The internet does work when hardwired but otherwise, no computer is able to connect to the wireless. I have tried to reset the router and the modem but neither has worked. I want some help with this issue. Thanks

Linksys Wireless Router Not Connecting?

I currently have a Linksys and can connect fine and also access admin config on the router through IE7. I also have another Linksys at work that I can also access. Last week we connected a new Linksys router and I could get a dhcp address from it both through wireless and wired but could not access the default 192.168.1.1 or the admin config, just receive IE cannot display webpage or could not find? My coworker connected his laptop and right away could access the config.This week I received a new LInksys N router and I have the same problem, I can get dhcp, and ping the gateway 192.168.1.1 but cannot access the admin console through IE and even tried Safari. I brought it in to work and my coworkers laptop can connect successfully. I have tried resetting all IE settings to default, removing all popup blockers, reinstalling the wireless drivers, updating laptop BIOS to most current and updating the routers firmware to most current and still cannot pull up the admin console...any more ideas..

Linksys Router not Connecting?

Hi all, I am trying to connect the linksys router with my laptop.. I have recently moved to India and wanted to connect to make my home WiFi and that's why I brought this router with me. I have resettled the router and to be fast I was trying to configure it with a wired connection. i am able to go into the IP address to configure the connection, all the lights on the router are showing that it has internet in it but not sure why the internet is getting to my laptop from it even when its wired with the router. The icon on the right bottom should say Local and Internet, and its saying Local only. The internet is fine as I am able to use it when I am directly connected to the modem. Please suggest how to fix this issue with this router from Linksys.

Cannot Access Linksys Router Setup Page?

I cannot get into my Linksys WRT160N router web page. I'm hardwire connected to the router. My computer is using DHCP IP addressing. The router has assigned it the standard 198.169.1.100. I can ping the router at 192.168.1.1. Wireless and Wired connections through the router to the internet are OK no trouble accessing internet sites. Linksys advisor displays the router address as 192.168.1.1 so it has not been changed from the factory default. The advisor shows my networked devices clear back to the internet and claims there are no problems. After entering 192.168.1.1 into IE. IE appears to connect and is waiting for the router to respond. After a few minutes it times out with failure to connect message. I've tried Safe mode with internet access I've temporarily disabled my Windows and McAfee Firewalls and the McAfee virus scanner. All to no avail. I'm out of ideas.

Installation of WPS54G Print Server for Windows 7?

Hello I am trying to setup my Linksys WPS54G wireless print server with my HP Deskjet F2430 printer copier and fax printer.  Here are the steps I took. I first setup the printer on my Windows 7 machine and I was able to print a test page. I then used the Linksys CD to setup with wireless print server. Now I am trying to setup the printer server software on my Windows 7 machine but the CD is not compatible with Windows 7. I did some searches online and I have used the Linksys live chat but to be honest the live chat was not very helpful.

How to Setup a Linksys WRT160N Router?

My sister-in-law had sent me her extra Linksys wireless router with the power cord and an ethernet cable. The problem is however is this:: I plug the router into the wall and then plug the ethernet cable into my usual router and then the Linksys router in each of the proper spots. The Linksys shows the wireless internet and power and all working (as all are blue and lit up). However when I connect my HP ProBook 4530s to the Linksys wifi network it says that the router has no internet connection despite my connecting everything together properly. I have never set up a wifi router before and would greatly appreciate some assistance. I do not have the CD that comes with the routers it is with my brother and sis-in-law. And I would call the support team but I detest having to deal with them as I can't ever seem to get the help I need from calling people. So if someone could explain to me what needs to be done. That would be much appreciated. Thank you.
