By router name they are asking about the router model number not the network name... password is the password of the user account provided for accessing the router...

I reset linksys, and lost my network name


You will have to setup the router from scratch. Plug a computer in and in your web browser type 192.168.1.1 when it asks for a user name put admin and no password and it will let you in to reconfigure it.

How to change wifi name in router


The wifi name you are referring to is called SSID, service set identifier. You can change that by logging onto your routers Web based utility. Open your web browser and type in 192.168.0.1 and it will ask you for a user name and password. If you keep the default user name and password the user name should be admin and the password is blank, meaning there is no password set up. After logging on, click on top tab "Setup" and on the side menu "Wireless". You should be able to change the SSID by typing in a new name in the field "Wireless Network Name". Make sure you save the changes! This should then change the name.

Router password is the password to access the router settings.
SSID is the network name. When you try to connect to the wireless network on your laptop, you will see this network name.
If your network is secured network then it will ask you for the network key or the password. You need to enter the ' security key '.

I have problem with connecting wireless...everytime when I try to connect it says my internet info is not accepted...It's keep asking my user name and password but I have no Idea what it's talking about...


Perhaps the request for User Name and Password are from your router? If you do not know the login requirements, might I suggest you redo the setup of your router? Point your Interenet Explorer at http://192.168.2.1 . Log in ships without a password, so just click Submit and proceed with setting your Network Name (SSID) and whatever security you want to use.
Answer: Pressing Enter at login request will get you in to your router. BUT please do as outlined above to secure your router. There is a manual available from router Login as well, accessed as stated above.

Router will not reconize 3rd computer


It is possible that the router has a wireless security enabled into it. The laptop needs the security key for it to connect to the wireless network. You can check the security enabled in your router from your router's User Interface page.

To access your router's page; launch IE from a computer that is working through the router. Then on the address field, type 192.168.1.1. It will open a window asking for a username and password. The default password to get into the router's page is admin.

Then, once you're in the router's User Interface, the main page that will open is the SETUP, beside it is WIRELESS tab. Click on it, then verify the wireless network name or SSID. Whatever name configured on it, is the name the laptop should connect to.

Then, there is a subtab under the main tab WIRELESS. The sub-tab is called, Wireless Security. Click on Wireless Security tab and then look for the netwok key enabled. Take note of the key which your laptop will be neeeding.

Hope this helps!
