To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith 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 andput it 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.

Depending on which router and brand you have the login info will be different.
  1. Press the pin hole in the back side of the router.
  2. Next try these logins
    User: admin
    Pass: admin

    User: admin
    Pass: password

    User: admin
    Pass: (blank)

    User: linksys
    Pass: admin

    IF VERIZON ROUTER/MODEL COMBO:
    The username/password will be on the sticker.

I can't find where to enter the code?


I assume you mean the address to access your Router. You simply need to open the web-browser of your choice (IE, Firefox, Chrome, ect.) and type in the Address bar where you would normally type an address like www.fixya.com and type in the numbers
192.168.1.1
This should bring up a box asking for your user name and password. Provided you've never changed the default settings your user name and password should be something like
User: admin
Pass: password

User:
Pass: password

User: admin
Pass: admin

If none of these work, simply go to google and type in "XXX routers default password" where XXX is the name of your router. (E.G. Linksys, Netgear, ect) Thank you and I hope this helps.

I got a linksys router model BEFW11S4 ver. 4 from a friend who doesn't recall what his user id or password are. How do I get around this problem and reset the router?


On the back is a pinhole near the power jack socket. Put a pen nib in there while it is powered on and then hold until the lights start to flash. It is now reset to: 192.168.1.1 user: admin pass: admin

Linksys wireless B router 802.11


go to linksys.com and click on support and download the full user manual for your router. then find the homepage of the router IE http://192.168.0.1 and the default user name and password and go to the homepage and type in the user/pass to get to the settings of the router.
if you do not know the user/pass it may be because you changed it when you first set it up. you can reset it (also listed on the linksys site how to do this) but you may loose you settings for connecting to the net or keeping you computers connected to each other so reseting should be the last option used.
once in the homepage of the router you will be able to make any changes to settings you need even locking yourself out of the router and the net if you dont know what you are doing. the cd is used to do the bare minimum and in order to get you connected you can do a lot more in the routers pages than listed on the cd setup.

just remember if you make to many chages at once without testing to see if they work for you. you wont know what change broke or fixed your problem
