Question about Linksys Wireless-B Broadband Router Retail (DSLSBEFW11S4)

1 Answer

Can't get more than one pc to connect with linksys router

A few months ago I reset my router by hitting the button on the back of the wireless b router. Ever since then I can only connect 1 of my home pc's at a time.

Addtionally the router is no longer connected all the time and each time I boot up I have to connect.

I can't figuer out what profile setting is preventing multiple pc connections nor the always connected profile. '

Any advice?

    Hello,



    Thanks for the feedback. I can only agree that resetting the router wasn't the way to go for connectivity issues. That was what I was trying to resolve with a lap top.



    I've gone through the setup process again with the router and hoped to be back to square one but that doesn't seem to be the case now.



    Each pc is hard wired to the router and connects with it's own network connection. I still don't understand why multiple pcs can't connect now though?



    Still stumped!

    This really sounds like a cable is connected to the wrong port. When you reset the router did you move any cables? Make sure the cable coming from the modem is going to the WAN or Internet port on the router.

Well I'm not sure if that's correct. When you Reset your Router, you cleared all of the available Networks. Let me explain. A Router is essentially a way for one computer to get its' feed from the Main computer. So when you setup your router, you had to establish which was going to be the Main System. Generally the main computer is connected via Ethernet Cat5 cable but not necessary.

In order for a computer to talk to your Network individually it must have it's own Keycode. You Open up View Available Networks and you should be able to see all Routers within your area. You'll place the keycode in that field and then that Computer is then able to access the Internet via the Router.

Since you Reset it, you wiped out the information and will need to start over. Question : Why did you Reset it anyway? What caused you to feel the need to do that because that's never a solution for not being able to connect.

My wireless router isn't working


I think you should reset the router and reconfigure it.
If the wired computer is also not working then I think you need to reconfigure it for sure.

Tip

Wireless Network Password - Linksys


If you are unable to connect your laptop wireless to your Linksys wireless access point/router, the easiest and fastest way to get going is to reset your router to the factory defaults. This will make your router work like the day you bought it.

There are 2 steps involved Reset your router, Setup/Secure a new router

Reset your router:

First
  • Unplug your DSL/Cable modem from power (not your access point/router) Leave this unplugged for now


Second
  • On the rear of your Linksys router you will find a small RESET button
  • With the power still on the router, Press and hold (with a pin/pen tip) the RESET button for 30 seconds.
  • Release the RESET button a wait 15 seconds for the router to reboot


almost done....
  • Unplug your Linksys router from power
  • Plug your DSL/Cable modem back in to power
  • Wait 1 minute for the modem to boot up
  • Be sure the ethernet (cat5) cable from your modem is securely plugged into the WAN port on the back of your Linksys router. This is usually labeled WAN or Internet above the jack
  • Plug your Linksys router back into power.


You will now be able to connect to the internet with your wireless device. I would advise that you follow the next steps in securing your wireless network.

Setup/Secure a new router

Log into your router
  • Type 192.168.1.1 into your web browser and hit enter
  • In the login fields (case sensitive):
  • Username: leave_this_blank
  • Password: admin
  • Click OK


Once in the web interface for your router
  • Click Wireless tab - Basic Wireless Settings
  • Find the Wireless Network Name (SSID) field
  • change this to your new network name (this is the name you will see when you connect through your wireless device)
  • Find the Wireless Channel field
  • Change this from 6 (default) to 1 or 11

Could you tell me what is the default password for linksys wireless-G? I bought this 6 months ago...


You did not mention which router model you are using (WRT, WAP, etc.), but my first try would be for username/password:admin/admin.

You can also go to this page and find your router in their database.

Note: The default values only work if the router is reset to factory default! If someone had changed the password already, this won't work. To reset the router to factory default, press the small reset button on the back of the router with a pen or needle for about 10 seconds while the router is connected to power.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

My WRT300N Linksys router shows all lights, I've hit the reset button onece, but I can not get online without plugging the cable directly into my computer.


Since you hit the reset button on the router, it will go back to default settings.

By default, the SSID is linksys and the wireless security is disabled.

So on the wireless network connections on your computer, you should see linksys and then just connect to it.

However, it is advisable to change the default SSID and to enable the wireless security.

Follow this link to change the SSID.
Follow this link to enable wireless security.

Good luck!
