I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

reset. Dumb me I just accepted what Linksys set up said and did not copy down new pass words or set up stuff. Why I am on the internet I don't know but it seems to work. Somewhere I saw that the router must be factory reset. UH???
I have other stuff using this network. They will all be dead. Linksys help number lets me leave a message. No live support. Left a note on 'contact us'.

Other than buying a new router and starting from "0" what is a dummy to do?
 

A:Power failure linksys router

whats the exact model of the router ?
and what password are you referring to
the password to loginto the router and setup the configuration pages
OR
the password you need to setup with in the router to connect to the ISP service over a phone line?

Who provided the router - the ISP or did you buy it
Are you also using a modem to get internet into the home ?

Hi -

First post for me - but what a helpful site!

I have a Linksys WRT54GX, ver. 2, wireless G router to which I have lost the ac power adapter. The manual lists it as a 12 volt DC 1 amp (12VDC 1 A).

I have been to Radio Shack, Best Buy, and numerous electronic outlets, as well as exhaustive searches on the net, as well as contacting Linksys directly (they will not sell one separate! Imagine that for tech support!).

You guessed it - I cannot find one. I even went to my pack rat brother who probably has beat Noah and has collected at least one, if not two of everything on Earth - just in case, as he says!

Anyone have any idea where I can get one of these things?

The ones I have found are 12VDC but .5a, 1.something amps, but none are 1 amp.

Anything anyone can chime in on would be appreciated.

(No there is no USB connection on the router to draw power from the CPU, either! Darn!)

Thanks

Noel in Northern NY!

We just had a poweroutage for a about 2 seconds, when power came back up, the power light on the router (linksys wrt54g ver 7) started blinking. I unplugged the router, plugged the modem in, and started surfing the net for solutions. One solution I found was on this site. I started reading a thread with a similar problem. Basically, its telling me that the firmware on my router is corrupted and I need to updated it again but by using the tftp.exe program since I can no longer enter the GUI of the router. The instructions I red said I need to assign a static ip first on my computer but it requires the DNS of my router and apparently (according to the instructions I red on the thread here with the same problem) the only way I can get the DNS is to access the GUI of my router and copy it from there. Since I'm unable to do that, I can't set up a static address, I can't use the tftp.exe program (I can't find a site where I can download it anyway); well there's nothing to start until I get that DNS number. I was wondering if I have other options left. I also tried resetting it. It didn't work.

My son hit the off button on the power strip to which my computer, modem and router are plugged.
When I rebooted everythihng, I was able to access the web via our two wireless laptops using my linksys wireless router WRTP54G.

However my wired desktop computers that do not have wireless showed that they were not connected (even though they were. )

I tried resetting the modom and router bythe usual unplugging and replugging in sequential order. it didnt help.

so i went to the 192.168.15.1 page of linksys to see if the settings were okay.

in the "mac clone" area i saw it was to disable so i clicked on enable and then hit save settings as instructed by the linksys website..

A dialog box came up which said that if i saved the settings the system would have to reboot

When the laptop came back u, not only could no longer connect with that laptop, when i clicked on the little cinnection icon that is in the system tray on the right by the clock - it would not give me any info.

-- this fixed the problem with my desktops. they have connectivity...
and my other laptop can connect to the internet with wireless

I presently have a Linksys WRT54G2 V1. I've been looking at the WRT160N to purchase & use as my main router. I'd like to wirelessly bridge the WRT160N to the WRT54G2 & have that as a repeater so that my signal is boosted, and my parents laptop wireless connection doesn't go all low & dragging when they're at the other end of the house. Is it possible & if so, can someone point me in the right direction as to procedure & configuration? Thank you.
 

A:Solved: Linksys Router Wireless Bridge to 2nd Linksys Router

I don't believe you will be able to do this "out of the box", look at third party firmware like dd-wrt. Never used it myself but I've read it works fine.

Or

It may be easier to run a cable to the second router and set them up with the same SSID and security.

Have them on different IP addresses and channels something like:

Router 1 192.168.1.1 channel 6

Router 2 192.168.1.2 channel 11

You won't get "true" roaming but when one signal is dropped the wireless unit will pick up the other automatically.... or one could simply manually change from one to the other depending where they are in the house and which signal is stronger.

Hi everybody,

For the last several days, I've been doing a lot of research about whether my power supply can support my graphics card, but I can't seem to find a definate answer. What I have is a 450 watt power supply; it has one single 12v rail that provides 24 amps. My graphics card is a ATI Radeon X1950 Pro PCI-E. It requires a 450 watt power supply and recommends 30 amps on the 12v rail.

When I asked whether my PSU can support my graphics card on other forums, some people tell me it can, but others tell me it can't, so I'm really confused right now. I had my X1950 hooked up and running for 3 days without having any problem, but I took it out today, just to be safe until I can get a definate answer. Although I do notice that my power supply runs cooler without the X1950 hooked up.

But on other forums, I even heard people run this card on a 18 amp 12v rail without any problem and they even have it running on a fully loaded system with 2x HDD, 2x DVD Drive, cooling system, fans and lights. And many people say that 22 amps should be the minimum to this card and 24 amps should be fine. However, there are also people who say that you should follow the manufacturers recommendation and get a minimum 30 amps power supply.

To give you a better idea of my system, here are the specs.

I'm trying to figure out how many amps at 12v the system I'm building will require, since it seems like the true limit of basically any PSU is the amount of power is supplies on 12v rails. I have a PSU that supplies 17A at 12v and I'm hoping that will be enough. The system is pretty basic:

ASUS M3N78-EM mobo with NVIDIA GeForce 8300 onboard video
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+ Brisbane 2.8GHz 65W processor
1 SATA HD
1 SATA DVD-ROM drive
May add one or two IDE or SATA HDs and a TV tuner card down the road

I'm having trouble finding data on how much these devices will draw from the 12v specifically. The CPU isn't hard, since it draws all its power at 12v: 65W/12v = 5.4A. Let's say 6.5A with imperfect efficiency, though I have no idea at what efficiency I should expect the CPU to operate. But what about the rest? In particular, I expect the onboard video to draw significant power at 12v, but I can't find how much.

Can anyone help? And can anyone suggest a resource for finding this kind of information in the future? When I find power usage information at all, it's usually simply listed in watts, without specifying which rail it's drawn from.

I did find the following two links in thread:

http://www.extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine
http://web.aanet.com.au/SnooP/psucalc.php

Both seem pretty useful (if a little out of date), but neither site seems to have good information on onboard video.
 

A:Please help me calculate power requirement

The onboard graphics doesn't draw significant amounts of power. You could say 1-2 A on the 12 V rail. It's quite a lot less than what a better discrete graphics card, let's say Radeon 4350 would draw.
What's the actual model of your power supply? If it's a "Ultra value 500w power supply" then even the underpowered 17 A @ 12V isn't most probably true, rather it's measured as a top peak output at unrealistic circumstances, for example a lot lower ambient temp than what it normally operates at.

Power supply problems relate mainly to video graphics. I suggest you get a quality power supply from the list of power supplies on this forum you can find with a search. Certainly 400 or 500 watts is a good choice, if it has steady output.

Hi,this is for a friend who is interested in buying an AMD A6-3650. The power for the processor is listed as 100w.I want to know what will be the minimum power requirement without any GPU attached.It will be of great help since we wanna cut cost to the most affordable one.
 

A:AMD A6-3650 power supply requirement

In a standard setup with no-GPU one or two HDDs, one or two ODDs a 300w should be sufficient however I would be hesitant to build any system with less than a 400w and preferably a 500w just because there isn't that much of a price difference and it gives you room for future upgradeability.

For budget PSUs I usually recommend these:
Antec VP-450 = $40 (This is a true budget / low end unit, It is decent for the money but I would recommend the others I listed over it. unless you have a really tight budget)
Antec NEO ECO 400C = $45
Antec NEO ECO 520C = $50
Antec EarthWatts Green EA-430D = $55
FSP Group SAGA+ 500R = $57 (this is good but it is an older model so it doesn't have very many SATA power connectors)
Antec BP550 Plus =$65 (modular if that is important to you)

Almost all of the newer Antecs are made by Delta or Seasonic so they are very good PSUs. Some people recommend the Corsair Builder series in this price range, however the builder series is made by Channel Well Technologies (CWT) which has a less than stellar record and I still don't really trust.

I just came in to the desktop group about 6 months ago, and a few things we do are a little odd (to me). For instance, we order GeForce 9800 cards for AutoCAD users.

But any way, we always ordered these 9800s with a computer that had a power supply that put out lesser wattage than required. So my question is, for the 9800/GTX 260 (nvidia), will it give a message that the wattage is too low or that it is going to start performing less, or can it cause issues without ever giving such messages?

Can it potentially cause issues with other pieces of hardware?
 

A:Video card power supply requirement (GTX 260, GeForce 9800)

You won't get a warning message.

Most often what happens is a freeze/crash or a restart.

If you haven't experienced any crashes, then the video card is not being stressed very hard. Normally these crashes occur as soon as you put load on to the card, but if this isn't happening, then a 9800 card is total overkill for your application.

You could probably get by with a 9400 or 9500 for these purposes. Technically, a Quadro from nVidia is really their workstation card, but they are all based off the same chips.

Hello,

I have an 8 port "wired" router from Linksys that I have been using in conjunction to a wireless access point which had been plugged into one of the open ports on the wired router. Lately I have been having connection issues with the WAP so I decided it may be time to upgrade. Not thinking about it, I picked up a new Linksys E1000 wiress router (as opposed to a WAP) and, after a lengthy support call with Linksys, got that up and running.

So I have operability for both wired and wireless devices, however I have noticed a substantial slow down on my wired devices. I also just upped the plan with my ISP to increase my bandwidth which I see on the wired PCs but not on the wireless which seem less. Would a WAP be faster than a wireless router by nature?

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Hello,

Short story even shorter, there was a semi-power outage this morning (lights were very dim but power wasn't totally off), and when the power came back on my router stopped working. Here's what I know:

-The WLAN LED is no longer lit so there's no wireless. That orange CiscoSystems button is no longer glowing orange either if that means much.

-For some odd reason a wired connection through any of the ethernet ports on the router no longer works either, though the LED's still light up when connected, along with the internet LED.

-The modem works fine, I'm connected to the internet directly from the modem right now.

-I've tried to reset the router, but it doesn't seem to do anything.

-I've tried to access the router config settings, and the page doesn't load.

-I've tried to look up the routers ip address through the command prompt but when I enter the command "ipconfig" when I'm wired through the router I always get the response something along the lines of "media disconnected". When I try the command when connected directly to the modem the default gateway ip address comes up as '68.43.36.1'. This doesn't work either.
I've been searching the web for solutions for hours and I can't find one. This is actually the first time I've ever had to post a thread asking for help and I've experienced a slew of computer problems over the years, lol.

Just switched over to AT&T DSL from Road Runner Cable Modem.

While I had the cable modem, I used a Linksys WRT54G wireless router that had my PC and laptops connected to it.

Since I switched to AT&T DSL, I have been using AT&T's all-in-one device, the Westell DSL modem/wireless router/firewall.

I've noticed that uPnP doesn't work as well on the Westell as it did on the Linksys. I also had to change some settings to get my VPN to connect to my company's network.

Which is better? Should I put the Westell in bridged mode, and reconnect my Linksys? Or keep it the way I have it running it though the all-in-one device?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know if this is possible, but this is what I want to do:
Have the dsl modem router and linksys voip connected together.
I want the voip router to assign dhcp and the dsl modem router to
be used to get internet access but not assign dhcp (I think)

This is why I want it:

I have 8 wireless linksys cam's configured through the voip router.
Setting the cam's to the modem router didn't work well because of
AT&T's firewall cannot be disabled, only modified to open ports. It's frustrating as when I opened the ports for the cam's, a consistant "an unknown error has occured". So I opted to just set up the cams on the linksys router as the cams are also linksys as well. Thus, figuring they would communicate better anyway.

This is my problem:

When I connect the dsl modem router to the
WAN port on the linksys router, the dsl modem assigns it
a fixed LAN ip. What I want is the linksys router to pull a WAN ip so I can log into my cam's remotely from my laptop at home.

So I have AT&T DSL. I bought a Netgear N300 ADSL2+ Modem/WiFi Router that is compatible with my service.

Previously with this Modem/Router it would constantly drop the wireless connection for the Wii I have that was used to stream Netflix.

So recently I bought a Linksys E2500 Router so I could be able to use the Wii, along with 3 other desktops, 1 laptop, and 3 phones.

My ideal setup would be this:
Set the ADSL2+ Modem/Router to be just a modem (I know how to set the option for this)​Connect the Linksys Router to be what all the devices connect to wirelessly (this would serve as the DHCP server) ​
I have read that one of the Routers has to be set to "BRIDGED" mode, yet I don't know which device has to be Bridged

I recently got qwest DSL and I configured my Wireless to work and accept my wireless MAC Address, but when I plug it into the WAN slot in the Linksys router it doesn't work. I went to linksys site and did their configuration which is changing the router LAN IP to 192.168.0.1, then power cycling, but this doesn't help. I cannot access the internet still. Both the modem/router and the router are operating DHCP, but if I disable the modem/router, I cannot access the wireless function, and if I disable the DHCP on my Linksys router, I cannot obtain an IP from the modem router via the linksys router.

This is frustrating lol.

Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi,
I own a business that offers free Wi-Fi to customers. Originally I had the blue linksys wireless G router hooked up to the booster on the roof. At another location, I just got a Netgear wireless N router, and that worked way better than the linksys. So I got another Netgear router, and installed it in the first location- but I'd like to hook it up to the booster. The guy at Fry's said that the Netgear router will not hookup to the booster- I'd have to hook the Netgear to the linksys, disable something on the linksys, and then the linksys to the booster.
So, my question is, how do I do that?

Thank you very much!

Hi,

My new home has is pre-wired and uses a UStec TP-IPR8 Router (<http://www.ustecnet.com/tech/tpipr8.html>) to share my broadband connection with every room in the house and provide a home networking environment.

I want to add my Linksys WAP54G Wireless Router (<http://www.linksys.com/products/product.asp?grid=33&scid=35&prid=575>) onto the network so that I can connect wirelessly too.

Can anyone help me out with the appropriate settings for the Linksys and/or the TP-IPR8 so that I can accomplish my goal??? They don't seem to want to cooperate for me!

Thanks in advance,
Colin
 

A:UStec TP-IPR8 Router and Linksys 54G Wireless Router

First Step: Plug a computer to the Wireless Router, change the IP address of the wireless router so that it's in the same subnet as the main Router (the one that is connected to the Internet Modem); give it an IP that doesn’t conflict with the main router's base IP address, or the DHCP server range. This will ensure that you can reach the admin server of the old router from any LAN machine, and that the Wireless Clients IPs are assigned correctly.

For Example:

- Main Router’s base address is 192.168.1.1, with a DHCP server range of 192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.200

- Set the Cable/DSL Router to (the one you're using as an Access Point) base address to any IP address between 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.99

Second Step: Switch Off the DHCP on the Wireless Cable/DSL Router.

Plug the Wireless Router to the main Router. Regular Port to Regular Port, using crossover cable (or straight patch if one port is an Uplink or auto-sensing).

The WAN input of the Wireless Router should stay open, do not connect any thing to the WAN input of the secondary router.

My network needs to connect to 6 wired PCs and 1 wireless PC.

Right now the Linksys 4 port router connects to the ADSL modem and 4 PCs -and I want to add a new Belkin wireless router to provide a wireless LAN access and have 2 add'l LAN ports.

Therefore, can I, and how do I configure the devices, so that the ADSL modem would go into the Linksys router; the Linksys would provide LAN connection to 3 PCs and the 4th port would go to the input of the Belkin router, which in term would provide wireless access and 3 more LAN ports?

Thanks.
 

A:Combining Linksys Router and Belkin Wireless Router

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

Evening,
My home network use to consist of 3 comps all running XP Pro and a Vonage router. With the addition of a 4th comp, I have had to use a port on the back of the RTP 300 for one comp. The four others ( 3 comps and the Vonage router )are connected to my Linksys WRT54GL. and I have no problems sharing files and printers. The one comp connected to the Vonage router will not allow file sharing or show up in Network Connections although it has no trouble accessing the net. Is there a setting in the Linksys router that I have to change to allow this one comp to share? I can't access the RTP 300 to make changes as it is locked. I have made sure all the comps are using the same work group and all file and printer settings are set the same on all comps. Any help would be appreciated.

We just had DSL brought to the house. We have three computers to use with the internet. We had satelite with the Linksys (WRT54G) wireless router. Now we have the DSL. The problem I am having is getting the wireless router to work with the DSL router. The DSL router is a Siemens SpeedStream 5890 (Bridge Router). I believe it is also the modem. The phone line goes directly to the router. I can get intenet if I plug into one of the ports on the back (there are 4 (5) of them).

One of the computers is directly hooked up to the 5890. My laptop is currently hooked up too, although, I would like to be able to use the wireless so I can get on the internet anywhere in the house.

When I hook up the Linksys to the 5890, the internet light comes on, on the front of the Linksys, but when I try to use the internet through the Linksys, I get nothing. My laptop and the another computer see the wireless and can even connect to it, but there is no internet.

Please help.
Thank you,
 

A:DSL modem router to Linksys wireless router

If the Linksys's WAN had any configuration other than "dynamic connection" to work with your previous service, you will need to change that.

If both routers are using the same LAN subnet (192.168.1.x?) you will need to

a. change one of them (e.g., to 192.168.3.x),
b. bridge the modem/router to make it work as a modem only, and then do whatever configuration is needed to connect to your DSL service, or
c. configure the Linksys as a switch and wireless access point.

While (a) is probably the quickest and easiest short term solution, either of the other two are preferable unless you have a need for cascaded routers. Solution (c) is ...

JohnWill's procedure for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

I have a new VoIP service, and because of that, I use a Linksys Broadband RT31P2 router, included with the service. The computer which is connected to this router works perfectly fine, and so does the phone. Everything works fine, but I now want that router (Linksys) to provide wireless access to a laptop.

The problem is that the laptop is not picking up a signal from the router, and the router configuration page has no option to "send" a signal for wireless connection. I am starting to think that the Linksys Broadband RT31P2 router is not meant for wireless access, or it would have this option, and make a mention of wireless access.

Here's the product page for the router: http://www.linksys.com/products/pro...rid=652&scid=29
