Go into the admin of the router by typing into http://192.168.0.1 (If thats what the gateway is assigned). Use your user id and passsword and go to the wireless settings. If you notebook computer doesn't have a wireless N adaptor, set it for mixed signal. That way you can use it on g adaptors. If it tests fine, then setup your security and/or mac filtering.

Linksys router password


To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

I have the 4 port Linsky Router.I have a Sony laptop connected to a Sony wireless routerI also have a movie download box. When I connect both to the modem separetely,bolth the laptop and the mvie download...


this is because your wireless router is a router, and your linksys is also a router. Both are attempting to do routing, and they're colliding with each other.

Go into your linksys router's settings, and set it's IP address to have the SAME subnet mask as your wireless router, (The third number in the ip address has to be the same)

e.g. if your wireless router is 192.168.0.1, make sure your linksys is 192.168.0.2
if your wireless router is 192.168.2.1, make sure your linksys is 192.168.2.2

After that, turn OFF the dhcp server on your linksys router (do this in the linksys config page).

After that, plug the LAN port of your linksys to the LAN port of your wireless router.

Your linksys will now be acting like a "Switch" which is an extension of your network. Voila!

I have a HPPavillion laptop with built in wireless. Is there anything I can buy to strenghten my signal to a wireless router.


No , thers nothing to boost the PC unless you go with a wireless N card, BUT, there IS equiptment for boosting the signal from your router and it will depend on which router you have.
Since you didnt post the make and madel of your laptop or router , this is just going to be a general fix.
Go to Yahoo, google, ETC. Search for "xxxxxx wireless signal booster ". xxxxxx being the make of router you are using now.
For example, i searched linksysy and found one for linksys: http://www.bizrate.com/networkingproducts/linksys-wireless-g-range-expander-router-wireless-signal-booster--pid11678449/index__kw--wireless+g+booster__qcid--1402153.html

Your IP address for you linksys router needs to be changed.  More than likely there using the same IP address such as 192.168.0.1.
You have to convert your linksys router to a switch and change the IP address range it uses to on that doesn't conflict with the Verizon router.
10.150.1.1 should work.

I got a linksys router and no disk and i got a wireless laptop and the lights when come on the router but no connection


Try a reset on the router.

You should also setup the router for wireless security as well. Therefore your the only one with the password to use your wireless connection. So no one near your place can steal and use your wireless Internet connection.

Also changing your SSID is a good idea.

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.
