Ok, theres probably something wrong in the wireless router, the key may be wrong, well you can just hold down the reset button behind the router and it will work instantly, you just need to reconfigure the security on it.

  • you will need to hold the button down for 30seconds if you want a full reset back to factory defaults, or just press it for a reset. if reset doesn't work do the 30sec reset.

My wireless connections will not work! last night both lap tops and my daughters zip it were unable to establish a wireless connection. It happened once before about a month ago and were able to...


OK, to clarify.
Ethernet = modem?
Wireless box = router?
Do you have hardwire connection to router?
Check the wireless settings in router with hardwire connection.
Most routers use random channel search for wireless.
I usually set this for to use one channel only.
Stops random interference and connections.
FYI: Most routers are on 2.4ghz - same as cordless phones and some hand radios - the frequencies over lap sometimes - even though they aren't supposed to.
Microwaves will also disrupt signals.

Net gear was completely disconnected from computer. net gear WPN82r v 2 was inadvertently reset. dont have a password. any help


To bypass the wizards, connect the router via an Ethernet cable, log in from a DHCP enabled (IP & DNS) computer at
http://www.routerlogin.net/basicsetting.htm

User name is admin and the password is password, both in lower case letters.

Note that wireless connectivity is off by default. When you configure this router manually , remember to turn the wireless connectivity on.

Click on Start - Control Panel - then Network Connections - then right click on your Wireless Network connection - click on Properties.
Then in "This connection uses the following items, scroll down to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click on Properties. Under the General Tab make sure Obtain an IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically are selected. Click OK.

If you do not see TCP/IP in the Wireless Network Connection then click on the install button and then install the TCP/IP driver.

IF TCP/IP is OK then before you do the following, turn off or disconnect the power to your wireless router, wait for 1 minute before connecting the power again. Wait till the LED lights indicate that it is on line again and the wireless is on then :-

Click on Start - Control Panel - then Network Connections - then right click on your Wireless Network connection - click on View Available Wireless Networks
Do you see your wireless network (ie. your wireless router)?
If so click on your wireless router and then click Connect.

You can also click on Repair to try to reconnect to your wireless router.
Let me know if it works.

Two router home network problem


Can you still connect to the Internet with the Linksys router? I suggest that you go ahead and reset the SMC router to clear up your previously configured settings. Then before reconnecting it to the linksys router, make sure that you can access its web interface via 192.168.1.1. Don't disable DHCP as your computer won't be able to obtain an IP address from it automatically. Do not change other settings. Next, disconnect the ethernet cable and check if you can access the router interface wirelessly. Once done, connect SMC's WAN port to Linksys' numbered port. Make sure SMC's WAN light is on, as well as the light for the port you used on the Linksys router. Check if you can get online.

With this configuration, the linksys router is now acting like a modem, and the SMC as your router. As long as you're online when wired to the linksys, you should also be able to access the net on the SMC once you physically connect them.

Cannot connect wirelessly, but can through my network cable


After a few tries and re starts it may connect itself, but if not go to Start>Run, then type 'ipconfig /flushdns'. Try connecting again, but ensure your wireless card is set to obtain IP address automatically and you have enabled wireless connection and DHCP in your routers menu. Hope this helps
