    Is your linksys router connected to another router?


  • ramosrich May 11, 2010


    Greetings.

    Make sure your linksys router is directly connected to ur pc. If you have not configured it before its suppose to allow you to access the web gui.

    Did you manually input the IP?

My router is not showing interface menu and logos


Try resetting the Linksys.
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.

HOW TO SET WIRLESS PASSWORD ??


>first, access your linksys' default gateway by typing 192.168.1.1 on you browser's address bar
>Graphical User Interface (GUI) will be accessed
>Now it will ask you to login by default the Linksys routers uses either "admin" as username and "password" as the password or leave the username blank and type "admin" as password. Not unless you have setup a logon security for your router's configuration. After logging into the router's configuration, go to SECURITY tab, if your wireless connection does ask for a username and password for you to connect then you need to ask your Internet Service Provider (ISP) what type of security is compatible with your service will it be WEP,WEP Shared, WPA2 etc...

Now, if you select WEP the password is plainly a 10-digit code, if it's other than WEP then the wireless password has to be a 16-digit Alpha-Numeric code...

the reason is the password on the GUi and in your computer is not match. You need to access the GUI by opening a browser then type the ip address of your router. You need to contact your ISP to assist you in configuring your wireless account.

You need to first manually configure your computer with an ip address in the same subnet as the router. Go to the control panel and find the adapter that is physically(or wireless, doesn't matter) connected to the router.

Next, select Properties for this adapter and pick the Networking Tab. In here, select Internet Protocol V4.

Check the radio button that says "Use the following IP address" and enter the follwing info:

IP address - 192.168.1.2
Subnet mask - 255.255.255.0
Gateway - 192.168.1.1

Now you should be able to configure the router. Be sure to change the above settings back to "Obtain an IP address Automatically" when you are done configuring the router if you set up DHCP on the router. If you don't you'll end up with duplicate IP addresses and things will break.

Good luck, and let us know if you need more help on this.

Wireless network broken, access to WRT54G & Motorola 2210-02 via http.. denied


I have att yahoo dsl which I installed about a year ago. The process required bridging the ADSL Modem (in my case a speedstream 4100) and accepting dynamic IP addresses and configuring PPPoE on the WAN side of my Linksys router. The ATT support person walked me through the entire process over the phone even though I was comfortable with making the Linksys configuration changes as I had to do the same in China without technical support. The modem configuration was no more difficult than the router configuration as it was performed from a web browser too. The biggest warning was that to reverse the modem change (if desired) required use of a reset button because the web interface was disabled as a result of the configuration change. My advice to you especially if you are willing to attach the Linksys router to the telco modem is to contact the ATT highspeed DSL support line and see if they will walk you through it like they walked me through it. Reviewing your Linksys User's Guide and understanding the configuration of that device would probably be appreciated by the ATT Support person as well as assuring you can access the Linksys router to configure it during the call.
