    I would call Linksys or whomever you are getting internet from. Its a bit bigger of a problem than what can be answered on a forum.

    I would check this site out. Its should be able to help you

    I'll just look into my crystal ball...

    We can't really help you unless you tell us something we can work with.

    • Does it allow you to use the internet when you're connected via wire instead of wireless?
    • Does it allow some pages but not others?
    • Can you use the internet with a different computer but not the one you're on?


    Are you sure you're connected to it? If you go into your web browser and go to http://192.168.0.1/ (or whatever the router's IP address is on your network), then log in, are there any settings that you can change?

    Tech support, thank you for calling.

    Have you tried turning it off and turning it back on?

    Hmm, I'm stumped then.

    Of course it needs to be configured! How? well, it depends... is the router directly connected to internet (that is, is there any other router or cable modem or anything provided by your ISP?

    If the router is not connected directly to internet, it will work as a bridge, and you will need to configure both the local network part and the internet part... the linksys router will be responsible for the local network and a bridge for interent.

    Of course, if you want to use the wireless, you need to activate it
