Hello, ok so ive tried everything on how to get the router working but i havent been able to so this is my last resort. I have a Cisco G Broadband Router WRT54G2 model. I get my internet through a Motorola modem that i have. When i try to connect my Windows Vista laptop to the router and then the router to the modem, i dont get interent access at all. Ive asked my teacher whos a technician to help me set the settings but the settings dont seem to work. Plz, any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

Lets try this

Power down the router and disconnect all wires from it. Wait for a minute. Power up the router, allow it to fully boot, then press and hold the reset button(backside of your router) for 30 seconds, then release the button and allow the router to reset and reboot .Wait for a minute.. Power down router. Wait one minute. Start the router again

Now try to configure as said the page

Go to http://192.168.1.1

On the top you have SETUP

Click on that

Change the Local IP Address 192.168.1.1. to 192.168.2.1


Click Save Settings

See if it works now

I think you are making mistake somewhere

Try this

Reset the router first. Press the reset button for a few seconds

Plug the computer to any of the router's LAN ports

do not plug the router to the modem now.

Login to the router's page at http://192.168.1.1 leave the username blank/empty and the password is admin.

Go to the MAC Address Clone tab and enable it and clone the MAC and click save settings

Go back to the setup tab and change the router's LAN IP Address to 192.168.2.1 and save the settings.

Reboot the router first before you plug it to the modem.

This should definitely work

Now I am presented with another problem, just today, earlier my router was working fine, but then the next time that I turn on the computer along with router and modem, all the port lights on the router are on and it wont go to the internet, I have even tried to do a reset by holding the button on the back but nothing happens, I unplug it and then plug it again and the lights are still that way, its as if the router just froze. :(
