I forgot my password for my wireless router, and can not sign my wifes new phone up on our wifi


When your phone asks for the password, out in the Encryption key. If you didn't print this out when you installed the router, insert the CD and install the Easylink Advisor, which wil then show up down in your taskbar in the bottom right corner of your screen. Open it, click on the Support tab, and it will show all your settings. For the password requested on your smartphone, enter the encryption key from your settings in EasyLink Advisor. That did it for me. Good luck!

I cannot connect to the internet with my linksys wireless router hooked up through my dsl modem. I also lost the installation disk. What can I do to resolve my problems?


DSL uses a ppoe account. Your DSL provider should have given you a router/dsl modem to connect to the internet, and then you can use another router to feed the house a wireless connection. The ppoe user name and password should be set up on one of these devices. If you don't know what your user name and password is, (I forgot mine a long time ago), you can contact your provider and have your password reset. Once this is done, you will either have to connect via wire to the device that should have your user name and password, and set it. Default IP address to get into this router is 192.168.1.1, type that into your address bar on your browser.

default user name and password are both admin, all lower case for both.

Once you get into the device then you can go into the setting and look for connection settings.

Here is the PDF for this router. Start looking at page 5 to learn how to set up a ppoe user and password.

Forgot password to WiFi How do I find out what it


To find the password/passphrase on the Linksys router, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router. On older models the username is left blank and the password is “admin”. On newer models, both the username and password is “admin”.

Once you get in to the router management tool, look for the security portion. There you will find the password or passphrase you are using for your WEP or WPA security encryption.

Computer repair tech said Linskey wireless caused internet prob


If you are using DSL as your internet connection there is a timeout period that could be setup in the linksys.

In order to change this you need to log into your router and on check on the setup page. You see the timeout option.

Check with your linksys manual for detailed instructions for logging into the unit. If you dont have it, you can always get it from their website.

Install router on windows XP


you could download the quick start from linksys.com for that but basically there is no installation necessary with windows, it's a network device that does not need to be installed. simply plug it in.

How To Set Up PPPoE DSL Connections with a Linksys Router


This article describes how to manually configure a Linksys Router for broadband DSL that uses PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) for authentication. For automatic configuration options, please try: 1. Linksys Easy Connect (see Answer ID 1650 for more information), or 2. The Linksys Setup Wizard CD-ROM software that came with your Linksys Router. Simply insert this CD-ROM into an online computer before connecting your Linksys Router, and the Wizard will provide step-by-step instructions on how to install and configure your router. If you are unable to set up your Linksys Router by using one of the above options, use the steps below to manually configure your router. NOTE: It is recommended that you print this article for offline reference. STEP 1: Before You Begin In order to set up your Linksys Router, be sure to first have the following: 1. A Linksys Router. 2. A DSL modem. 3. A working computer that can be wired in directly to the router for initial configuration and testing. 4. Two (2) standard Ethernet network cables. Linksys Routers come with one (1) standard network cable that you can use. 5. The PPPoE DSL username and password assigned by your Internet Service Provider. Depending on the provider, your username format might be similar to username, vzn123456, or an e-mail address (username@isp.net). If you are not sure what your username and password are, contact your Internet Service Provider for more information. STEP 2: Check Your Internet Connection Before installing your Linksys Router, it is important to first verify that you can successfully access the Internet by connecting directly to your modem (without your Linksys Router installed). 1. If you are connecting for the first time, follow the instructions provided by your provider to set up your modem and computer for online access. 2. Verify that you are able to access the Internet without any problems. If you are not able to get a connection, contact your Internet Service Provider for assistance. When you are able to access the Internet using your modem, continue to Step 3 and proceed with the installation of your Linksys Router. STEP 3: Connect the Hardware Follow these steps to connect your Linksys Router to your modem and computer. 1. Shut down your computer and unplug the power cords connected to your modem and Linksys Router if they are currently powered on. 2. Disconnect the network cable that connects to the back of your computer. 3. Connect the network cable that you just removed to the Internet port (or WAN port) located on the back of your Linksys Router. Your modem should now be connected to your Linksys Router. 4. Connect a second network cable back into your computer (into the same port that was disconnected in #2). 5. Connect the other end of the second network cable to one of the numbered ports located on the back of your Linksys Router (labeled 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.). Your computer should now be connected to your Linksys Router. The following diagram shows how your network should be connected. Verify that your connections are correct, and continue to the next step. 6. Plug the included power adapter into the router?s Power port. Then, plug the other end of the power adapter into a nearby electrical outlet to supply power to your router. 7. Turn on your computer. Do not turn on your modem at this time. Only your router and computer should be turned on for Step 4. STEP 4: Configure the Router Follow these steps to configure your Linksys Router. 1. On the computer that is connected to the Linksys Router, open a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape. 2. Type http://192.168.1.1 into your browser?s Address or Location bar and click Go or press the [Enter] key on your keyboard. The IP address 192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of Linksys Routers. 3. A user name and password prompt will appear. Leave the user name field blank (empty), and type in admin (lowercase) for the password. The password admin is the default password of Linksys Routers. NOTE: The following username/password prompt screen will vary by operating system. 4. Once logged in, the router?s web-based Setup utility should load. In the section labeled Internet Connection Type, or WAN Connection Type depending on router model and firmware version, select the PPPoE option on the drop down list. Click here to view what an older Linksys router interface looks like. 5. Once PPPoE is selected, enter your PPPoE DSL username and password provided by your Internet Service Provider into the router?s User Name and Password fields. Depending on the provider, your username format might be similar to username, vzn123456, or an e-mail address (username@isp.net). If you are not sure what your username and password are, contact your Internet Service Provider for more information. NOTE: Be sure to
