I’m sorry to tell you what the only way is the hard way.
Find and press the reset button on the back of the router.
Now - hopefully you remember how you set up the router previously, or you have to do this at the same time in all the computers on the wireless network.
NOTE. Do use cable between the router and the pc you perform setup with.....

Please vote if this help you.

    When less than a quarter feel the need to vote for the effort some of us at FixYou offer, I think to myself, ”is it worth it”.

    They get help, and do not care to thank you; “thank you” do not cost a dime, so why????

Can connect to internet directly through modem. When connected through Linksys WRT54GS router, all lights are ok on both modem and Linksys--including internet. (Have had this router for 2 years...no...


As last resort you might want to use a JTAG cable and debricking programming software. If your router is brikced or you want to change the firmware this cable can do it. The cable will connect to your parallel port and your wireless router so you can repair your router. They are about $5.95.

Forgot password to add new computer to router


Hi!

Press the reset button for 10 seconds. It set the factory default
settings. The router will erase all information, the DSL settings too.

After that you can login in with the default password, via web
interface:

http://192.168.1.1

username: admin
password: admin

The default username and password is admin/admin.
I hope it hekos.

Wireless router connection problems


Assuming "cannot connect to linksys router directly" means you cannot connect to a Wireless Lan managed by Linksys router,
1) try to connect new computer to LinkSys Router using a Lan cable, add new PC to your network.
2) recover protocol (WEP or WPA) and Key of WLAN (Passphrase or Key: TKIP or AES) either from other PC on same network either from your Router.
3) If you missed actual key you must connect to router and reset it to a new key to be eventually used for every connected device.
Call for detail on this possibility

I cannot connect a new lap top to our wireless router


There's no special settings actually in adding another notebook to your wireless network. You can add up to 32 wireless clients on your wireless network. You will see a wireless network icon at the system tray by the clock, just click that and you will see the list of available networks. Choose your network and click connect. That should do it.

USB adapter


You can try using the WZC (wireless zero configuration) utility instead of the linksys utility. Just right click the icon and select "use windows to configure my wireless settings".

You can also check for wireless interfence that could be blocking the connection of your wireless computer to the router. Try changing the channel of the router and make sure that the wireless settings are personalized.

If all those failed, you can try updating the driver on your wireless adapter and the router's firmware.

If you have any other problems, just click on ask me and ill answer it as soon as I can.
