The normal method of accessing the LinkSys router is by going to your computer browser (IE or FireFox) and where the web address goes put http://192.168.1.1 Hitting the link in this post should actually bring it up.

The default setting for the LinkSys is blank for the user name and "admin" without the quotes for the password. That should bring up your router configuration application in your browser.

Click on the "Wireless" tab first, and then the "Wireless Security" sub-tab second.

There you should find your security key and the type of security setup on the router. This would be what you need to duplicate for your Netgear wireless phone.

If your settings aren't as they come by default, you can defualt the entire unit and reset it up, but hopefully that won't be necessary (only would be required if you just flat can't get to the admin panel of the router).

Hope that helps!

We need this router manual. It is very slow


Hello. What is the exact model of your router? If you have internet connection speed problem with your wireless try with the following steps,
  • Reset the wireless router by using the power switch on it or by unplugging it and plugging it back in.
  • Place the wireless router in an ideal location. The higher it is, the better, but don't put it near metal objects.
  • Get as close as possible to the router with whatever device you're trying to connect.
  • Keep the router and your connecting device away from other electronics. You should especially keep away from phones, fax machines and microwaves. etc.,
  • Adjust the Wifi antenna if it has one.
  • Change the router's channel, especially if other wireless routers are nearby.
Following these steps would give you stable internet connection and also increased speed in connection. You can check your internet speed from ScanmySpeed.com before and after following these steps.

Drops connection slow when downloading and opening web pages


It can be various reasons like..

Insufficient Wi-Fi Network Range and Power
Unknowingly Connecting to the Wrong Wi-Fi Network
Network Driver or Firmware Upgrade Required

i think you should reset your router and check the all physical connection and modem light status..

How to put password so the neighborhood couldnt access my dlink router


Hi,
All you have to do is connect to the router and change security key/ secure the connection. Just follow the following steps: -
First you have to access the router through web browser (Internet Explorer) by typing the IP address of your router in the address bar, which is 192.168.0.1 (Default router settings are written under the router)
(unless you've configured otherwise, the default username is admin and the password "leave it blank")

Lookup for the options to do the following: -
Next step is to secure it (adding a network security key):
1.On the left-hand side, under Setup, click "Wireless Setup" Click on Setup at the top and then click Launch Wireless Security Setup Wizard. Select your desired encryption method (WEP
)
3.Choose a Network Key - it can be anything, as long as it's 8-63 characters in length
4. Click Save Settings.
Also, do the following changes: -
1. Change the SSID (Name) of the router
2. Change the default administrative user name and password
(The above steps would prevent unauthorized access to your router)

Now your router and your connection would become secure and the user has to provide the network key to access the internet. Please note down the settings such as SSID Key, User Name/Password and Security as in case you loose this information you cannot recover it back)
You may also download and refer to Page 60 onwards of the PRODUCT MANUAL DIR-625 for further information, if required

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

How do i put a password on my connection


Hello,
please write your address box the below link,
http://192.168.1.1
Then, it opens your user interface of the modem.
You can manage your modem now.
Find your Wifi Protected Access (WPA) and Pre Shared Key (PSK)
Choose one of encryption techniques. I use TKIP.
Wireless Protected Access with a Pre-Shared Key: The key is a password, in the form of a word, phrase or series of letters and numbers. The key must be between 8 and 63 characters long and can include spaces and symbols. Each client that connects to the network must use the same key (Pre-Shared Key).
Put a password to your connection settings and save it.
I hope this will be helpful.

Internet connection not working right compaq evo n1020v


Hello
First you will need to have the install disc for your card.Install driversoftware from cd or dvd, following directions.Once installed you should see a new hardware device has been found notification.

Next you will need to configure your card with the routers wep key or wireless security key.I am assuming wireless is activated on your router.Should see a light on the router lit under wireless,or a symbol.
1 start pc then start internet explorer.
2 Type in the top bar of ie 198.162.1.1 or 198.162.1.0 hit enter.
3 This should bring you to the routers home page.usaername=admin password=password or admin
4 Find your wireless tab or settings page looking for security area.
5 Find your wep or wireless security code,write this down.
6 Log off of router.
7 Go into network cards configuration program and put this wep code into the area provided.
8 Software may have found it automaticly, it just needs this code.

If you cant connect to router at step one use a ethernet cable from your pc to the router to log on.

Hope this helps.

I am trying to connect with another computer to the Internet, and for some reason I can't. I might have forgot my password/ key.


Did you use the setup adviser to add another computer? Linksys has the step by step with photo's for adding more machines to the router, and if your other machine is wireless but has a ethernet connection also you can plug it in and set it up that way.

Router Password


try admin and admin again for password. If that is not it try leaving the password box blank. Good luck Are you sure you did not change the password when you set it up the first time. If you did you have no other option than reset.
