Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My laptop decided today that it didn't want to get online. It is telling me that my wireless G router has the wrong password. I have put the correct password in and the diagnostics then tell me that everything is fine, but it still won't connect. My desktop is connecting ok.

    IS the desktop Hardwired to the router? If so the router just may not be giving out the wireless signal. but your hardwired machine may be fine.

If you cannot access the router setup, the only way to get back to it is to press and the router reset button to place the router back in the factory mode. Then the "admin/password" default should once more work for you. Do not confuse the router userid/password with the wireless name/password. They are different. When you set up your wireless network, your SSID is the wireless network name. Then you should select WPA2 personal as the security encoding. Then select a password for the wireless network and enter it. Be careful as they are case sensitive. Use a long password for best security. Use a short phrase that is easy to remember, such as youwillneverguessthis. Then save it and try again. Routers can be frustrating til they are set up. Good luck!

My device keeps telling me that I have entered the wrong password for my network, when I have put in the right password multiple times.


If your Linksys admin password was not changed and your router is unsecured then someone could have changed your router's settings and network password.
To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of therouter 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 beconfigured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in allthe laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wirelesssettings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wirelessrouter.
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 PW (write it down and putit in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Is your desktop getting an ip address from the router?
You said that you reset the router, do you mean turning it on and off or pressing the reset button?
