I have a Linksys WRT110 wireless router. When I bought it in 2008 I had it connected to my PC and it worked well. I haven't had a wireless electronic to use it with for sometime, although purchased a Nook today and when trying to search for a wireless connection discovered that the router is no longer providing a wireless connection. I've scoured many website trying to get help and have tried many different things to no avail. I can't access the 192.168.1.1 webpage for the router, it doesn't come up. I can't ping 192.168.1.1 either, it times out. My ipconfig results are as follows:

I have a cable modem (Cox Communications). I can connect to the internet fine. When I've tried using the CD that came with the modem it doesn't work and gives me an error "322" message.

I'm at a loss and VERY frustrated. Linksys wants more than what it would cost to just go and purchase a new router to offer phone support since the 1 year warranty has expired.

Oh I have turned off any and all firewalls as well.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Hello,

Try this 1

First you need to connect to your router through wired.

Then login into your router and configure the wireless settings.

Click on the below hyperlink "Manual" and download your router manual.

Manual

You can find all the instructions in your manual.

Good Luck

How do I connect through wired? When I use the CD provided with the router it gets stuck at the screen where it tells me to connect the power adapter to an outlet. It acts as if it's trying to complete the tast for about 4-5 minutes and then comes back with the error message 322. I did find that manual previously that you included the link to, although I don't know how I can connect through wired if I can't get the wizard to complete. Thanks.

Hello,
Try this 1
Reset your router. You can find the reset button at the back of your router. You can use paperclip to push the button. When your router is ON, just hold the reset button for 30 secs and release it. It will reboot on its own.
(Note : It will clear all the settings you have configured in the router.)
Check if you able to login into the router. Just connect only the router to your PC using the cat5e cable(Straight-Through).
Now open internet explorer and in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and press Enter.
Now it should prompt you to enter user name and password. Leave the User name field blank and enter the password as admin --> Click on OK
Let me know if you are able to enter into the configuration mode.
Good Luck
