Mantoo,

Try resetting the router by depressing and holding the reset button on the back for about 15 seconds. It might be that options were set and by resetting the router it puts it back to factory default settings.

Also, ensure you have the cable from the computer plugged into the correct port for the router. It should not be in the "uplink" portion of the router as this is intended for another router. To be safe, looking at a picture of your router, you'd want to use the "2" port and ensure the cable from your modem is going into the "WAN" port.

  1. Begin setup of your Linksys Wireless Router by first plugging in the power. Give it 10 seconds or so to initialize and then plug an ethernet cable into your wall jack and into the port on the back of the router marked Internet. Next get another ethernet cable and plug one end into your laptop and the other into one of the ports labeled 1-4 on the router. Your computer is now properly connected to the router to begin its setup and configuration.
  2. Next open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Enter admin for both the username and password.
  3. You should see the Setup page shown below

I recently got a Mac desktop and my Linksys router disk will not open up. Do I need a router that is made for Macs or is there a way to configure the Linksys?


Hi, You are correct. The CD is not compatible with Mac. What you have to do is Configuring the Router Manually using the Web Based Configuration panel.
How to:
  1. Open your Web Browser
  2. Type http://192.168.1.1 in the Address Bar and hit Enter
  3. If you have changed the address somehow you have to enter that (Router's IP - Default Gateway)
  4. Here is a small guide to Fine your routers IP address in case of that you are unable to access
  5. Enter the user name (default user name is blank- means no user name. Just leave it blank), Default password is admin.
  6. Now you can configure the Router using the Menus.
  7. Make sure that you have Saved your settings before Exit the Web Based Setup.
  8. Make sure that you have changed the Default Password.
  • If you can’t access the router’s web-based setup page, please check the following: cable connections, router’s LEDs, IP address, and connectivity.
  • Connecting Devices Together
  • Ensure that you have an Active Internet Connection and connect the modem to the router’s Internet port and the Mac to any of the four Ethernet ports.
  • Checking the Router’s LEDs
  • After connecting your modem and Mac to the router, check the lights on the front panel of the router.
  • Checking the Router’s IP Address
  • To find a Linksys router’s Local IP address, you have to check the IP settings of the Mac
  • Checking the Mac’s Connectivity with the Router
  • Ensure that the Mac is properly connected to the router.
You can download the Manuals from here to learn how to do Advanced, Customized Configurations.
Note: Please select the appropriate Hardware Version.
Thanks for contacting Fixya! Feel free to ask any questions if you face trouble with the setup. Please rate the answer as well!

192.168.1.1 the default IP Address of my router is not working.


easier to configure if direclty connected using ethernet cable not through wireless laptop or anything wireless.
type in exactly in address bar 192.168.1.1 nothing else(no http or www.) and hit enter. if this doesnt work try to hold the little button near power plug on router for about 10 seconds to reset it and try once again. If it works when you type in the 192.168.1.1 and hit enter you will be prompted for password. user is always linksys and the password by default is admin. then hit enter. now you should be in configuration pages.
