You need to reconfigure the router. The power outage probably resetted the router to it's default settings. In the default state the router doesn't have any wireless security; hence the "unsecured network" warning from your PC.

Connect your PC or a laptop with a cable to the router, surf to (http://192.168.1.1 or https://192.168.1.1 - ignoring any security warning); which is the configuration interface of the router and follow instructions in the manual.

When you have a Linksys configuration CD, you can simply run the "Easy configuration" setup after connecting your PC with a cable to the router.

Plainly put you just have to configure the router just like when you first used it.

To configure the Linksys you need to connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAP port on your computer.
Then open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
If the Linksys won't accept this password then it was changed and you need to RESET the Linksys back to the default settings.
To do this - power up the Linksys and press and hold down the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router for 30 secs. Now try and login again.

Router wont connect internet


Are you trying to set up the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Trying to set up router,will not accept my isp info,checked over and over info is correct


Normally, your router is not involved with your ISP. Your router should be communicating with your modem which you rent from your ISP or you own. Your modem, once set up properly, will allow your router to use it. That is whaat DHCP is all about. Let it work.

If your router wont accept your password, you can simply reset the router. Look for a reset button at the back of the router. Press and hold it down for 20 seconds, then unplug the power cable. Wait for 30 seconds then plug it back in. That should clear the password and will let you connect to the internet.

G router wont work through vista or satellite dish


hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix and use supportcall as your promo code for 1 free technical support.

Wireless connection


Your wireless set up for super G ? So i think the first problem is configuration e standard mode for wireless. Set up only 54 g.

Second search for your factory wireless usb new driver for windows vista.

Good Luck.
