Question about U.S. Robotics MAXg USR5461 (738168036790) Wireless Router

USB Wireless Network Setup Values

Am trying to set up my US Robotics MAXg wireless USB adapter. Using the SureStart Installer I get to a screen that says my selected router or access point has security enabled. Enter the appropriate values. (WPA2, WPA,WEP Open, WEP Shared, or other). I have a Westfall Model 327W Gateway from Verizon. Which value do I select?

After this screen it asks to enter the passphrase or encryption key for the router. Is this the password for the gateway unit?

The value it s asking for is the password you'll need to enter on all your authorized machines to use when asked.

Most common is WEP-Open. It's a 10 character password you can use. You can use the numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F. For example 39cca8f1a4 could be your 'key' or passphrase.

Again, any key you "make up" will have to be known to other computers trying to use that point to access the network and the Internet.

I have a U.S. Robotics USRobotics USR5461 Wireless router


heres the online installation manual http://www.usr.com/support/5461/5461-ug/index.html
see configuration tab - You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
------------- so if you cannot remember the username and password - you will need to reset to fsactory condition and reset all the settings in the router for it to work with your ISP again
the reset button is on the back - RESET Button: To restore the factory default settings, use a paperclip to press in and hold the RESET button for five to ten seconds. If the RESET button is pressed for less than five seconds, the Wireless MAXg Router will reboot.

Had to reset router to factory settings now want to reset pasword


If you have your router at default settings do the following.
Open a web browser and type 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. This should pull up the settings for the router.
The username is likely "admin" or "administrator" and the password "admin", "administrator" or "password". Once you're into the router you can change the settings as you wish.

My US Robotics USR5461 Wireless MaxG router needs to be rebooted quite often (sometimes once or twice a day) to get internet access back. The status page says it's connected to the internet but I can't...


Hello,

Considering the frequency you have to reboot the router to get it to work may indicate a glitch with the WAN gateway.

I recommend fully resetting the router and setting the wireless network up again.
You should be able to reset the router using a pin and sticking it in the pin hole on the back of the router near the power source.

Thanks,

Pat

How do i find my network key or create one for security?


Login to your router and check to see if wireless security is setup:
Use Internet Explorer and type 192.168.2.1 in the address bar.
Login using the password you created when you setup the router.

You can view the wireless security settings and retrieve the key.
If security is not setup you can enable it....directions here:

Password


If you happen the forgot the router's password the only way around is to do a hard reset(hold the reset button at the back of the router for 5 to 10 seconds - this will wipe out all your previous settings) on the device but if you just need to change the default password to something different here's how;

Open an Internet browser(Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari) and enter the Wireless MAXg Router's IP address. The following is the default IP address of the Wireless MAXg Router: http://192.168.2.1

You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.

Go to the Security tab and now you can enter or change the username and password of your US Robotics router, you can also enable wireless security(encryption) like WEP or WPA on the Security tab so that you can properly secure you router against unwanted freeloaders/computers getting wireless access through your router.

Hope this steps would help you settings up your router if you have further questions regarding setup just post a reply.
