Problem with linksys wrt54g

by EvilGnome / October 24, 2005 3:59 PM PDT

Recently, i was attempting to setup my first FTP server on my home computer. By doing this i had to adjust a few settings within the config of my router (dynamic to static, and port forwarding for port 21) after doing these and saving changes i restarted the computer...but after restard i am unable to connect to the internet through my router, i have to unplug and connect directly to the modem just to get on the net.

If someone could give me some advice on how to get settings all back to normal that would be fantastic (tried the reset button, and that did nothing, as well as unplugging)

Thanks for reading this.

reset router WRT54G

The router has to be powered on. You must hold in the reset button on the back of the router for at least 5 seconds.

This can also be accomplished through the router administration page. Click the Administration tab to get to the page that allows you to restore factory defaults.

assign IP addresses, it requires settings being adjusted in both the router and the PC. Default gateways, DNS servers and IP addresses need to be configured.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
