Linksys Router

  1. I'm having a bit of trouble with a Linksys router I recently purchased. It's a WRT54G. According to the software that came with the router, my laptop can access the router, but not the internet. But the computer I have that connects to the internet via Ethernet (through the same router) can access the internet.
    How can I configure the router so my laptop can access the Internet via the router too?

    Just turn on the laptop and make sure the wireless card is enabled and on then let it find your router. Also make sure the router's wireless transmitter is on. There is a setting on the router's setup page to turn it on or off.

    Hi, As it is just a wireless Router and not a Wireless ADSL router you will have to set up ICS (internet connection sharing) on the computer that has the DSL/ADSL modem connection.

    use the Network connection wizzard, setup a small home/office network and enable ICS.
