Is your speedstream router also your high speed modem? If so, you will have to go into the settings on the Linksys and change its IP Address subnet from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1 (or you can use a different number than 2) You will then need to reboot both routers (and possibly the computers) and try again. The easiest way to get into the Linksys settings is to connect it directly to the laptop via network cable, then type in 192.168.1.1 in the web browser. No user name and admin is default password. (Make sure you change that, and the name of the wireless, and the security settings)
Good Luck!

Hi i'm trying to connect my i phone to my wireless network and i have not got the password any idea on how to get it? I've reset the router as described in other soloutions, thanks ivan


Use an Ethernet cable to connect a desktop/laptop computer to the router. Then, using the PC, you can "configure" the "wireless" capability of the router, and you can establish an SSID and a password. Then, configure your iPhone to _use_ that SSID & password to connect.

Netgear Router WGR614 will not connect to internet


Hi,
Looks like when you reset the router you have lost all yur configuration and back to the default factory settings.

Bridge the 5100 first.
1. In your web browser browse to »192.168.0.1 This address will be located on a yellow sticker on the bottom of your modem.

2. The first screen will ask you for your Modem Access Code. This also will be located on the same yellow sticker.

3. Select Advanced from the blue buttons on the left.

4. Click the PPP locations button.

5. The modem may ask your for the Modem Access Code again. If so type it in again and click continue.

6. Select the radio button labeled, "Bridged Mode (PPPoE is not used)"

7. Click Save Changes.

8. A "PPP Location Warning" page will come up. Click "Change PPP Location."

9. A "Restart Needed" page will come up. Click "Restart"

10. Reboot your computer and and then connect the router

11.Configure the router for PPPoE using your ISP uid/pass

12.Configure your wireless using WEP

13.Desktop : Using Dell wireless client configure the client using the same SSID ,wep as configured in the router
Laptop : follow the same as desktop

(by default dell wirelesss client takes over the wireless configuration in dell pc.to disable it and use windows wireless client..control panel ->administrative tools -> services -> enabl2 wireless zero configuration)

14.after all configuration shut the desktop,laptop,router,mdm and pwr them in seg..first modem and then router and then your desktop or laptop

Cheers !!!

Speedstream 6300 network key



Wireless security is commonly performed by encryption using wep setting a network key. That key is to be shared by both the router and the network card to allow encrypted communications. If appears you have not provided the network key that was configured into wireless router to the wireless adapter card to allow them to exchange encrypted communications. The preferable solution would be to get the active network from the router and provide in to the wireless adapter in the prompt / request you were presented. This will protect you wireless network from access by those you have not shared the key with.
