Linksys router password


To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I have a Belkin G Wireless Router and all of a sudden the wireless internet has stopped working. i have restored default settings to the router. the internet for the computer is working through the router...


Probably you have to turn on the wirelss portion. Go to Belkin and download a manual for the exact steps.

You need to navigate your web browser to the router, log in and make changes. I have included the highlights that need to be set, below.

Wireless Router


It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below.


Things to set:


Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.


1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.


2. Set a recognizable system ID.


3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.


4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

I have an HP Pavilion a1410n desktop PC. We just moved to a new house, and where I want to put the PC I'm having a difficult time getting wired internet access. I want to know if there is anything I can...


hi, you have a couple of options open to you for doing this, you could either buy a wireless receiver card that goes inside your desktop computer and then this will pick up the wireless signal the same as a laptop would once the software that comes with it is installed.

the other option you have open to you and the cheapest one would be to go out and buy a wirelss usb dongle you can buy these from all computer stalls and most shops that sell computer goods, you just plug this into your usb port on the computer and it then scans for all wireless signals the same as your laptop does all you then do is pick your own network and click connect, if you have any passwords protecting your network it will ask you to enter this before you connect, if you are unsure if its protected all you need to do is call your internet service provider and ask them if it has a password and if its secure.

if its not secure you could have your neighbours connecting to your wiresless network so you need to have some sore of protection, you should have been as you all ready use wireless for your laptop.

the best thing for you to do would be to go to a computer hardware store (maplin if you have one where you live) but any store will sell them and just tell them you need a usb dongle so you can connect your desktop computer to your wireless network.
these dongles are cheap to buy and saves you taking the desktop computer apart to insert a wireless card inside your computer so thats the option i would say would be the easiest and cheapest option open to you.

i hope that gives you the info you was looking for.
if you have any problems just give me a shout back

How to configure wireless internet connection in windows xp


You need to set up the router first and know the name of the router: Also called The SSID.

Example: FIXYA'S ROUTER is a name for a router written by the router's owner and not the manufacturer. NEVER leave the default name (example: lynksys, Netgear, etc) because then everyone would get into your private wirless connection.

Once you set up the secuirty and name (SSID), turn on your laptop.

1) open contol panel and open NETWORK CONNECTIONS
2) right click on the wireless network connection icon
3) using the drop down menu from right clicking, click on PROPERTIES

A window called WIRELSS NTWORK CONNECTION PROPBERTIES will come oup

4) On the top Tabs ( labeled "General, Wireless Networks, and Advance) click on WIRELESS NETWORKS.
5) CLICK on the big button called VIEW WIRELESS NETWORKS

A new window will come up called WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTION

A list of other wireless routers should show up under the words CHOOSE A WIRELESS NETWORK

6) Rememeber the name you typed out for your router in the begining? LOOK AND CLICK ON the name you gave your router (eg: Fixya Router)

If you set a pasword or Wep key for connecting to your router type it in after you click and press ok. If you ddnt set a password or wep key, just click on the nam o router and click ok

You should then see if you could get on the web by opening your intenet explorer. If you followed the instructions well, you will be able to get on the internet.

PLEASE SAVE YOUR SSID (OR ROUTER NAME ) AND PASWORD OR WEP KEY IN A SAFE BUT OBTAINABLE PLACE.

Hope this helps :)

Can you please help me set up password protection for my Lynksys wireless? Everyone in my neighborhood is using my service and it is slowing down my access.......


http://192.168.0.1/

Remember this address and/or write it down, this address is the common address for your lynksys.

When a popup comes, asking for username/password.
Username: Admin or if it dont work try Superuser
password: password

Then look for Wireless Setting > WPA-PSK(Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) > Then on the bottom should say security passphrase/password (Type in something you will remember or only you will know) >Save settings/Apply and exit.

Now since you've changed your wifi, you need to manually delete and search for your wifi agian since the settings are changed.

If your using Vista: (64bit)

Start > Network > Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Network > Highlight your Wireless connection ( Select Remove) > Add > Then go through the process of finding your wireless connection and you magically got back your protected wireless.

Hope this works.

We have purchased a new notebook{higrade brand vista OS} to replace a packard bell using XP the XP laptop connected no problem the newone finds the belkin router but won't connect to the internet are...


Do you have a wireless security protocol enabled, and if so, what? Install a wired connection to the router (use an ehternet cable to connect your laptop's RJ-45--looks like a wide phone plug--into one of the Belkin router's network jacks). Go to the router's management page using your web browser (probably http://192.168.2.1). If you have not previously set the password in your router, simply leave the password field blank and CLICK "Submit". If you have previously password protected your Belkin router, use the known password. If you have forgotten your password... you'll need to reset your router.
 
Reest Router: there is usually a small hole into whiuch a pin or paper clip can be inserted for this purpose or a small button to press. Most Belkins--IIRC--have the button. 

Once you are on the Belkin router's management page, look for the wireless link and set your security protocol to match what your wireless card is capable of, set the password, save and exit. Use the sasme password in configuring wireless networking in Windows.
