I am having problems getting my laptop to connect to my linksys wireless router
Posted on 2008-10-27
I have been having an on going problem with my daughters dell inspiron 1521 laptop connecting to my wireless router a Linksys wrt54g v8. Now it will not connect at all. I spent 2 hours with linksys tech support both online and by phone trying to get this fixed. I could not do anything by phone because they said this model is out of warranty and they wanted 39.00 to talk to me.
I tried by online support but no luck. This is a wired and wireless router. the wired computers connect to the internet fine. I was told to buy a new router. I removed and added the network settings in the laptop several times.
When you check and go to connect to a network the info i put in does not show up as an available network. when you go to manage networks it does show up there. Is there anything I am missing or a firmware update to add or should I buy a new router?
