I tried to reset my security password and now it won't work.

I am getting a signal through my modem. It is currently hardwired to my laptop. It seems to receive a signal from the modem but doesn't sent one out to my laptop.

    Hi...I was wondering if you actually reset your router - that is, used the recessed reset button on the back?

    If so, this would cut off the internet signal through the router. If you perform a reset, all settings are cleared back to factory defaults. This means anything you entered, including ISP information, is lost.

    If this is the case, you will want to set up your router again. Visit the Netgear Site to pick up a user manual and setup instructions if you need them: there are also tips there which will help with setup.

    During the setup, you can create a new network key - the one Windows asks for when you want to connect to a wireless network.

    Hope this helps you, but please come back to Fixya if you need help or more information.

Make sure you have the physical connection connected properly.

-Modem should be connected to the Internet/WAN port of the router.
-Your laptop must be connected to port 1 of the router as well.
-Make sure you can go online hardwired to the router.

Then configure the wireless settings of the router by accessing the router setup page, change the wireless settings.

My device cant connect to wifi.

Wi-Fi connection can create problems for various reasons like incorrect browser settings, errors in cable connection, misplaced passwords or a modem requiring reset.

  • check your web browser and activate the "Work Offline" option. To get this option, go to the "File" tab in your web browser and click the "Work Offline" option to uncheck it.

  • Make sure your Ethernet cable is properly connected with your broadband modem and your wireless router. If this cable is loose at either connection point, you must tighten it before hoping to attain your Wi-Fi signal again.

  • Press the "Reset" button that is located on the front face, top or rear of the broadband modem. This button allows your modem to re-initialize, and this may solve your problem once it boots back up.

  • Enter your web address into your web browser and navigate to the page. A dialog box will appear that asks for a password, so enter the password from the manual.

  • Log in using default username and password. You can now change the password for security purpose.

The wireless connection have been lost.. We tried to restart the router like 9 times and also the modem. We called the support and they didnt know either after 30 min long call. Tried other cabels, and...

With your computer hardwired to the router, try to access your router's administrative program. In a Linksys router you do this by entering the address in your browser. If you get into the router it may ask you for an UserID and password. Again, in Linksys, if it hasn't been changed by the owner, both of these will be admin or Admin or the password may be blank.
If someone set up the router for you and set a password, you have to get the password or reset the router to the factory settings. There is normally a reset button on the bottom or back that you can hold down for 10 seconds to reset the router. DO NOT RESET YOUR MODEM. Modem's require special set up by your internet provider and they will charge you a setup fee to come in and reset your modem if you erase it's settings.
Once into your router settings, look for the wireless setup. Where it shows "Wireless SSID Broadcast", make sure it is enabled, if not you will not see it on your computer's list of wireless networks. Make a note of your SSID name. This is the connection you will be looking for when you search for wireless networks.
Enter the wireless security section. If your security hasn't been set up, you should set it up, otherwise anyone can steal your signal. If it is setup or once you set it up, make a note of the key. If you make any changes here, make sure you make a note of them and save them before leaving the administration program.
Disconnect the ethernet cable and try to locate your SSID. When you try to access it, it should request your wireless key and that will be all you need to connect.
Your router should have come with an instruction manual that gives detailed instruction on how to do this, but if you do not have it you can normally find it on the manufacturer's website. Good luck.

Can't get online. It says wireless signal is excellent

Try resetting the router if possible to factory default. Then power everything down, your laptop, router, and modem. Plug in the modem and let it fully come up. next plug the network cable from the modem to the router and then plug in the router. Wait approximately 1 minute and then turn on computer.

Then reset security.

Please let me know if this does not work or if you have any questions.

Good Luck!

After retting my D-Link Router, my internet has stopped working.

This is a very common problem. When you hit that reset button it erases the setting in the router. Some internet service provdier have DHCP built in to the modem so you have to unplug the modem and router and plug them both in at about the same time, this will usually re sync the two. you should now have internet connection. There are some internet service providers that use PPPoE which is basically Username and Password.

You set this up by logging intoyour router main page and setting it to PPPoE. Once set, there should be a box for Username, this is usually your email address that is associated with your ISP. Enter in the password and click apply.

Hello, I have a RCA digital broadband model #DHG535-2 modem from comcast, i recently purchased a Linksys wireless-g broadband router model #WRT54G2V1 The problem I am having is connecting from my laptop...

If your trying to connect wirelessly with your laptop make sure that you have the following information of the router;
1. Wireless network name or SSID
2. Wireless security settings; WEP 64/128 bit ot WPA

If your not familiar with the settings then you may need to access the setup page of your wireless router. Hardwire the laptop to the router or if you have a main computer that is already connected with an ethernet cable, open Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox or any web browser you are currently using. On the address bar type (router's default IP), then you will receive a pop up asking for a username and a password, there is no username and for the password type "admin" then click the Wireless tab on the router and check the basic wireless settings, if your not comportable with the settings then change the following; SSID - use a name that is easy to remember, Channel - 1,6, 11 is ideal, then for the Wireless Security choose WPA Personal and enter a 8 digit WPA Passphrase(pasword), remember to click save settings every tab that yuo go to or else the settings will na take effect. Then check if the laptop will detect the signal of the router and when it prompts you for a password or network key, just enter the 8 digit code that you have configured earlier.

If you have further questions regarding the setup of the router just post a reply and I'll to give you a response if my sched will allow me.

Hope this will atleast provide you with some idea in setting the router properly for your laptop.

Modem reboots when using wireless

Did you try upping your lease time and see if that changes things.
The lease time is the amount of time before a DHCP request a new IP address.
Ususally it get the same, but if it is malfunctioning it can cause problems like this.

Check for the wireless security settings in your modem.. and check if your airport is connected properly, if it is connected properly, then you would get a valid ipaddress, try resetting the modem and reconfigure your wired and wireless settings, if possible , try to upgrade the latest firmware for your modem and then reconfig it..
