Question about Linksys RangePlus WRT100 Wireless Router

1 Answer


I can not reach control panel. the password and ID don't work and I have held the red button on back twice for more than 30 sec. to set to default factory settings but still asks for p/w when I enter "admin" for id. ?

I have the router connected at my desktop. I am working now from my laptop wireless, but it is connected as "unsecured." I also turned off power and rebooted - I can't find the CD.

Connect to the router using a wired connection and use a blank username and "admin" as a password not username.

I have GE JVM1540DN1BB microwawe. It beeps all the time and says "keypad sorted" and service needed. The beep sound is annoying and it beeps every 30 seconds

Touchpad and Control Panel If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective
Touchpad If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
User Control and Display Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

Main Control Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

My tv starts changing channels in the middle of us watching tv how do i fix this?

stop spraying 'windex" on your display! It drips down or goes to the side, where your "control buttons" located. Won't take a long for ammonia to penetrate "tact' switches and cause them to engage without physically pushing them. next: you TV will start to do the same way to 'on/off"! If you can disassemble tv, just carefully locate control panel and remove it from TV's plastic frame. You may need to use caution! Usually, couple screws must be removed to reach that thin board. Watch for plug! If wires are long enough, you may remove the panel. If not, don't take a chance: reach to switches with WD40 thin straw dispenser and apply a little bit of that to every switch. It might smell like WD for a little while, but problem is solved! Don't forget to push every button 10 times after applying WD! for a 'deep ***********"!
Good luck!

How i check to see if my router is faulty

Check to see if you can access the router's control panel. To reach the control panel make sure you are DIRECTLY connected to the router with a CAT5 (Ethernet) cable.

Now go to Start>Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt. In here type: ipconfig
Press Enter. The command should return results similar to these:
IP Address: . . . .
Subnet Mask: . . .
Default Gateway: .

What you want is the IP Address associated with the, "Default Gateway." Now open your Internet Browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc...) and type that same IP Address into the address field. DO NOT add www. or .com. Now press ENTER (Or GO) as if you want to visit a website. This should take you to the router's control panel. Once here you will probably have to log in, if you don't know the username and password try the default:

User ID:
Password: admin

If that doesn't work you'll have to call Linksys for assistance in reseting the login User ID and Password. Once you manage to log in try some of the links. If no errors are returned (Page not Found, etc...) your router should be functional and is not the source of your troubles.
