I can't connect to the internet w/ my new laptop. I can't find my security key to hook up.


This article documents a known issue with resetting a Linksys WRT120N to its factory default settings.

Symptom: Holding down the reset button on the back of the router does not reset the settings.

1) Download the latest firmware from Linksys (link below).

http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT120N

2) Unplug the router, hold the reset button, and plug in the router while still holding the reset button.

3) Open Internet Explorer, go to http://192.168.1.1

4) Use the "Browse" button to locate the firmware file downloaded from Linksys.

5) Once the update is complete, unplug the router and plug it back in.

6) Hold the reset button on the back of the router for about 30 seconds, a light will indicate when it resets.

7) Allow the router to reset for 1-2 minutes.

8) Open Internet Explorer, go to http://192.168.1.1

9) Enter "admin" for the username and "admin" for the password (without quotes).

Your router should now be reset to the factory defaults!

I can not down load any thing on my conputer i pay a lot for hughers net if i can not use down loads what good is it two me


there may be many reasons why you can not download from the internet.

check the following.
check your firewall settings to ensure that you do not have any blocks set up for the site or the file type you are trying to download.

to test try downloading a file from a known clean site with the firewall switched off, if the data starts to download, stop the down load and switch your firewall back on. and then go into your firewall and check the settings are correct.

speak with your internet supplier to ensure your service is set up correctly.

I hope this was helpful.

I just purchased a new router. How do I download the latest firmware available for my WRT120N Wireless Router?


There was firmware just released 2 days ago for that router, you definitely want to upgrade it.

Once downloaded you need to log into the router, go to the maintenance tab / advanced tab and look for upgrade firmware. Then you just point it to this file I have linked for you and it will upgrade!

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.

Here is the download for the firmware:

Unable to open internet browser from my laptop. Pops up with, "diagnose problem" or, "unable to display"? My router has done this before. But the customer support ran through it so quickly I can't remember...


If you have a flash drive or even a cd-burner, this problem is rather simple.

On your laptop, go to the C drive, Program Files, and the internet browser file. Delete that file.

Then, on your desktop, go to the C Drive, Program files, and the internet there. Copy all of the files under that browser into your flash drive or onto a blank CD. Then take the flash drive or cd out, and copy all the file you just loaded onto them onto the Program Files on your laptop. Then try and open the web browser.

Good Luck!

Upgrading firmware


Downloading the Firmware Step 1: Before downloading the firmware, make sure that your computer has an active Internet connection. If your computer is plugged directly into the router and cannot get online, disconnect your router and plug your computer directly into your cable or DSL modem. Step 2: Once you are able to get online, click here to go to the WRT54G Version 5 Download page. Step 3: Click Download to download the firmware file. Approx. file size (Zip file): 1.39 MB If you are using Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and Internet Explorer, you may see a 'Pop-up blocked' message in your browser Information Bar. If so, click the bar and select Temporarily Allow Pop-ups. Then, click the Download link again. Step 4: Click Save in the File Download dialog box that appears. Step 5: In the Save As dialog box, choose a location for the file (like the Desktop) and click Save. The wrt54gv5_fw_1[1].00.6_US_code.zip file will then be downloaded. When the download is complete, click Close if prompted. Step 6: Double-click on the wrt54gv5_fw_1[1].00.6_US_code.zip file and extract its contents to a single folder (or to the Desktop). NOTE: You will need to use a utility to open and extract files from the ZIP file archive. Popular software to use is WinZip®. For information on how to download WinZip®, visit the following website: http://www.winzip.com. You can also use the built-in unzipping features of Windows XP to unzip the contents from the archive. The following (3) files should be available: * wrt54gv5_fw_1.00.6_US_code.bin * Readme.txt * wrt54gv5_ver.txt Upgrading the Router's Firmware Step 1: Plug your computer directly into Port 1 on the back of the router.

Step 4: You will be prompted to enter a username and a password. Leave the username field blank, and enter admin for the password. Then, press [Enter] or click OK.

If are still unable to log in, hold in the Reset button on the back of the router for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, unplug the power to the router and then plug it back in. Then, try Steps 3 and 4 again. Step 5: When the router's web-based Setup page loads, click on the Administration tab. Step 6: On the Administration page, click on the Firmware Upgrade sub-tab. Step 7: On the Firmware Upgrade page, click Browse. Browse to the location where the firmware files were extracted, and select the wrt54gv5_fw_1.00.6_US_code file. When the file is selected, click Open. Step 8: Click the Upgrade button on the Firmware Upgrade page to start the upgrade. The upgrade will take a few minutes - please do not unplug the router's power cord or make any changes during this process. Step 9: When the upgrade has completed, the following message will appear: "Upgrade is successful. rebooting...." Completing the Firmware Upgrade Step 1: Close Internet Explorer. Step 2: Hold in the Reset button on the back of the router for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, unplug the power to the router and then plug it back in. This step will ensure that the new firmware loads properly! When you are finished... The firmware upgrade is now complete! You can now use the router's Setup Wizard CD to configure your Internet service and set up your wireless connections.
