Have been using WRT160N for 2 years with PC and laptop; suddenly can no longer access Internet from laptop though it is connected to the network. Server admin suggested asking router experts...


I recommend you RESET the Linksys bacl to the default settings and reconfigure the Linksys.
To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of therouter 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 beconfigured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in allthe laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wirelesssettings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wirelessrouter.
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 PW (write it down and putit in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Can not remember my network security code


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you need your Security Key (Passphrase) we can access the Wireless Settings Page of the router to obtain the information needed.


To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.11.1, the Default username is root password is blank

Go to wireless settings page and look for the Network Key. You can personalize the Network Key if you want.

Incase the username is not accepted you can reset the router by pressing the reset button at the back of it using a pen or paperclip for 5-10 seconds.

If you have questions just let me know. Thanks for using Fixya

I've had a new laptop but require my security key, model WBMR-G54 to access the security enabled network, from my old laptop.


If you've forgotten the wireless security key you entered when you set up the router you can reset it by connecting to the router directly with an ethernet cable instead of the wi-fi. Plug a cable into the router and then laptop and access the setup page for the router. See the manual (or download one from the buffalo site) for setup instructions.

I want to put a password. pls help me on this. thank you


Plug a CAT5 Ethernet cable into one of the output ports on the router and into you computer. Power up the computer and then power up the route. Open up your browser and type the following IP address into the location bar. http://192.168.11.1 Use "root" for the default login name and leave the password blank. If that does not work you will have to completely rest the router. Find the "init" button on the bottom or back of the router and push and hold it for 20 seconds. This will reset the router to the factory defaults. Now try to login again. once you are logged in to the router you will be able to set any of the security settings.

Can't find AOSS button on my router


The AOSS button as for as I know is only on the Buffalo brand routers

HERE is the link to the Buffalo website explaining the AOSS feature so your Linksys router will NOT have an AOSS button at all
Buffalo Solution
The AirStation OneTouch Secure System (AOSS™). With AOSS, users can set up the securest wireless network possible, easily and quickly. AOSS automatically detects and configures other AOSS enabled wireless devices and clients and seamlessly negotiates the most secure connection possible between your wireless devices.

How do I secure my Buffalo WZR-G300N? I have lost the pin code and camnt get back in. I have read on another site that to reset the username is: root and Password is nothing (i.e blank). Once this is done...


Some wireless routers have a pinhole reset button on the back of the router. If so, use a sharp point to press and hold this button until the LED lights flash, then release the reset button. The router should be restored back to the factory defaults.
You can then open IE browser and type in the configuration IP address of the router to configure the wireless settings, you most likely need to connect a LAN cable from the computer to the router, configure the wireless settings (ie SSID, encryption etc) take a note of these settings and configure the wireless card on the computer with these settings. Then the computer can communicate with the router without using a LAN cable.

Problem with my buffalo airstation G54 WHR-HP-G54


  1. After unpacking your Buffalo wireless router, connect the ethernet cable from your jack to the rightmost ethernet port on the back of the router. This is the blue WAN port labeled "Internet". Next, use another ethernet cable to connect your computer to the router, using any of the 4 remaining open ethernet ports on the back. Finally, plug the AC adapter into the power port on the router and plug it into the wall.
  2. Once the router has been plugged into the network and powered on, the power light will come on and the other status lights on the front will go through a series of flashes. Once the leftmost diagnostic light labeled "Diag" has gone off and the light labeled "Router" has come on, this means your router has been initialized and is connected to the network.
  3. Now open a web browser window and enter 192.168.11.1 in the URL field and press enter. You will get a prompt to enter a username and password to access your router settings. You should enter "root" (without quotes) as the username and leave the password field blank, then click OK. You are now taken to a page where you can configure your Buffalo wireless router.
  4. Click on the Admin Config button on the top right of this page. Enter a name for your AirStation and click Apply. Wait for the router to restart with the new setting, you may have to refresh your browser window.

  5. Next click on the Password button in the small row of choices under Admin Config. The Administrator name is fixed as "root" however, you should now choose an Administrator Password (8 characters or less) and enter it in the two fields provided, then click Apply. Wait for the router to restart, and you will be prompted to login with the username "root" and the new password you just set up. If you choose a password over 8 characters long, you will be unable to login and will have to reset your wireless router by using the pinhole on the bottom.

  6. Next click on the Wireless Config button on the top, third from left. In the small row of choices under Wireless Config, click Basic(11g). Make sure the box labeled Enable next to the Wireless Radio setting is checked. For the SSID setting, switch to the second choice Use: and then choose a name for your wireless network. You should write this name down and keep it near your wireless router in case you forget it. Click Apply.

  7. Next click on the Security(11g) choice under Wireless Config along the top of the page. For the Wireless Authentication setting, select WPA/WPA2 mixedmode - PSK. For the WPA-PSK (Pre-Shared Key) field, choose a password that is between 8 and 63 characters (letters and numbers only) and enter it here. Click Apply. buffalo04.jpg
  8. Your Buffalo wireless router will restart and is now configured to connect securely to the Internet.
