    This has been troubling me for a while now. I have a Linksys WRT54G ver. 2 wireless router that up until this point has been working decently alright for me. Every now and then I would lose wireless internet and just have to unplug the router for 30 seconds and everything would be fine again. Now, however, it seems that nothing will let me fully connect to the internet using the router. If I plug my laptop in directly to the modem, it works fine. Plug it in to the router or use try wireless, no such luck. I have tried many, many things and nothing seems to be working. Also, in the windows network connection screen, when I click diagnose and repair it says that it has pinged the primary DNS server but received nothing back. I don't know what to do at the moment and any help would be much appreciated.

    Here are the command prompts I've seen asked for on these forums a bit.

    Is there anything else connected to the router and do those PCs have the same
    If so
    As the router is not working in cable or wireless, i would do a factory reset of the router and also look and see if there is an updated firmware available

    Just tried doing the factory reset and now I cannot access the router's web config page. When I have my laptop plugged into the router it just says it cannot access the page and doesn't give me the option to log in. I looked but I don't even have the setup cd's so I have no idea what I should do now.

    after a factory reset the login is as follows

    Connect a PC up to one of the ethernet ports with cable
    Then use Internet Explorer (Some routers have problems with other browsers)
    Then
    Open your web browser. Enter http://192.168.1.1 in its Address field.
    Press the Enter key.
    A password request screen will appear. Leave the User Name field empty, and enter the default password, admin, in lowercase letters in the Password field.
