Re: can't get more than one pc to connect with linksys...
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.

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/Cablemodem from power (not your access point/router) Leave this unplugged for now
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
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
Type192.168.1.1 into your web browser and hit enter
In the login fields (case sensitive):
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)
Hello Reset the router. 1 power down pc and unplug all cables from router including power. 2 Find small reset button inback of router,use a pen tip or paperclip to hold in this button for 30 seconds. 3 Plug power cable back into router. 4 When light is on plug other cables back in. 5 Restart pc. This should allow you to use 192.168.1.1
Also you can go to start then run in windows and type cmd then hit enter Once box pops up type in ipconfig then hit enter. This will show you a list of numbers,look for the one that says ip address,use it to log onto router.
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.
You can try to hard reset the router and update the firmware. Follow the steps below.
1. Download the latest firmware of the router from Linksys website. Save it on your computer. 2. Hard reset the router. Press the reset button at the back of the router for about 30 seconds, unplug the power for 20 seconds then plug it back in. 3. Connect your PC to port 1 of the router and access the router's setup page http://192.168.1.1 no username and admin for the password 4. Go to Administration tab > Firmware Upgrade sub tab. 5. Click Browse button and browse for the firmware file that you have downloaded from Linksys site. (.bin file extension)
After the upgrade, do a hard reset again. Repeat Step 2. Then you can reconfigure the wireless settings again. Hope that helps.
