I just bought a router (Linksys WRT54GL), I put in the CD and follow the SetupWizard. When I reached step 7 I keep getting this error, "Unable to connect to the router! Check that the router has been connected to the PC, or reset the Router to factory default settings by pressing the router's reset button for 5 seconds" I check all the cables and they are connected properly, I tried resetting my router, and I tried a lot of other things but I just can't seem to fix this error and pass step 7.

Any help is appreciated.

thanks

I take it the router is plugged into the PC via an ethernet cable, right?

Well...if we knew what steps 1 - 6 were and what step 7 was, it may help.
Or take the router back and tell them its broken.
I have seen brand new routers come out of the box dead.

See Jawkster, I win.


The cable is properly connected into the ports on both the router and the PC, right? It's not just half in half out?


Oh and, do you know the router's IP, and have you tried to connect to it using Firefox or whatever?

also....run ipconfig
Start button - Run - cmd
in cmd window type: ipconfig

you should see the router's ip address in there, listed under gateway (192.168.0.100 or somethine similar)

^ There you go. I didn't know how to get the IP, when we set up ours my brother did most of the work, he just got the password for the Internet connection wrong


And Jawkster, you're completely correct. So shush up.


What happens when you try to connect, just the standard "can't connect" thing?


Oh, wait there...


It is plugged in and turned on, isn't it?

steps 1-6 were just plugging in the cables and step 7 was making sure the lights were on

cables are properly connected, I know the IP but for some reason I can't connect to it.
