Can you clarify the question.

Is there a modem (cable or verizon) connected to your router; if so you might need to turn off your modem, wireless router and computer for five minutes. Then turn on the modem, wait 5 minutes, turn on the wireless router wait 5 minutes, and then boot your computer. Also, make sure your computer's network card is set to DHCP, which automatically assigns your computer an ip address from the wireless router.

How to connect my self and make my IP address ?

you can set your laptop up to detect ip address automatically in its network settings. if you had provided the operating system it would have helped to narrow down how to do this. If you had told us how you plan to connect to the router this also would have been helpful. Are you connecting via blue cat5 ethernet cable or via wireless. If it is wireless your laptop should detect the wireless network and you can ask it to connect to it. If the wireless link is encrypted you need to log into the router via ethernet cable and look for the securirty settings on the wireless and find out what the encryption code is. Usually the router will use what is called an internal IP address range. the subnet is usually class c being and the ip address default gateway IP address is usually either or and this can be put into the browser to log into the router. When you set the laptop to automatically obtain the IP address the Wireless Router has a DHCP server that manages the leases of IP addresses to computers connected to it. However if you are connecting the Wireless Router into an existing network with another router you will need to set the IP address to the next IP address eg on existing router make second router> if you have a DCHP server on the wireless turn it off if you have a DCHP server on the existing router otherwise you have confusion as to which DHCP server to listen too on your network.Make sure the DHCP router does not allocate at least the first 10 addresses eg to to allow for the routers and printers on your network that may need dedicated IP addresses (Static IP addresses)

How do i retrive my password

Log onto the router using the for Linksys in the address bar then look under the wireless settings in the router.


Look at the IP settings from a computer that is connected the the network to find the address of the router. The default gateway in the connection properties is the address of the router.

On the computer connected to the network,

Press down "Windows key" on your keyboard and Letter R

Type "cmd" with no quotes in the Run Dialog and

Hit enter,

Type "ipconfig /all" and hit enter in the command prompt.

This is if the IP address is dynamically assigned by the router.

Good luck to you

Access the router setup screen, check the IP address first of the computer.

Open IE type there username is blank and password is admin.

Cannot connet my laptop to he wireless router

Hi gups1, I will try and help you make a start.

It would help to have the name and model number of your router if possible (eg Netgear, Linksys?)

First, look at the router itself. Is there a label on the base of it? Sometimes this tells you the address you need to get at your wireless settings. It will look something like If you have a manual, you should find this info in there.
You need to type this address into a web browser, as if you were going to look at a web page (but note, there is no 'www' in the address).

If you succeed in doing this, a box pops up requesting your username and password. If you don't know this, again look at the base of the router or in the manual.

If you succeed in logging in to your router, you will see a menu where you can configure or change your settings. Come back if you don't get this far, or if you need more help at this point.

Wireless connection

JRSavage - The solution you supllied is to assign the IP address to the client. It appears Guest is asking how to log into the Router.

Guest - If the router is a wireless router then you should not have to know it's IP to connect to it, simply looks for it's SSID in WIndows Zero Config wireless util (or the util that came with your wireless adapter)

If you're connected and looking how to log into the router itself you'll want to enter the router's IP address into the address bar of your internet browser.

If you're looking for where you enter the router's IP for NIC configuration, you would enter the Router's IP as the Gateway address.

Phoblem with 524-up

All wireless router manfacturers do not set their devices to the same gateway address so the may not be accurate for your router. Can you identify the router's manufacturer and model number? Without that assuming you are on a windows computer you can open either a DOS Prompt or Command Prompt depending on the version of windows you are running. From that window issue the command ipconfig (it may require some operands and there may be multiple connections appear). Generally look for a connection probably with an IP address beginning 192.168.?.? and record the default gateway also probably a 192.168.?.? address. This may then be utilized like your friend to access the configuration for your wireless router. You may require an url like https://192.168.?.? or http://192.168.?.? where ?.? is from the default gateway address above. In addition you will probably require a UserID and Password that if unchanged can be gotten from the manufacturer's documentation or possibly reset using the manufacturers documentation if it was changed and is unknown. The manufacturer and model information along with the information for the wireless network adapters accessing router will be necessary to find a suitable security scheme to "lock" this device for secured access. Besides encryption schemes routers sometimes support using MAC addresses from your specific network cards to limit devices they will communicate with. These decisions need to be made after the additional information is identified.
