    ..and 5) Can you connect if security is disabled?

  • eecom May 11, 2010

    Hello... can I ask a few questions to help narrow down the problem:
    1) Can you successfully make a wired connection to your network

    2) Which operating system do you have - Vista, XP, or...?

    3) Which make of computer are you trying to connect to the network

    4) Is your password a WEP or WPA key? WEP can sometimes cause conflicts with newer operating systems

Linksys reset
The easiest method of resetting your Linksys router’s password is to reset your router back to the default factory settings. This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password “admin”, in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to “admin” on some of the newer Linksys router models. then go to the wireless security page and type in a new password.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Are you not able to load the page at all? or is it showing invalid access. credentials? If its saying that you have invalid username or password, and you are sure about typing your correct credentials, then it is most likely that your account has been compromised. Try to use the forget password functionality and make sure you are still able to open the email associated with your facebook. Please dont hesitate to ask, should you gave other questions.

Is your wireless network secured ?
If you are trying to connect to the secured wireless network, make sure that the network that you are typing is correct.
If you are not sure about the network key
then check the network key on the router.
You said that MAC is able to connect to the neighbor's wireless network.

Slow identifying 2wire686

Are you trying to use wireless? If so, do you have poor signal? I would suggest browsing to your modems interface. Type into your web browser. Click on the Homenetworking icon. Select wireless settings. Type in your system password. Increase the power of your wireless setting located towards the bottom of the page. You can even try changing the wireless channel. Save and then retry to connect. Make sure you are entering the network key correctly.
