You can power it down with your computer if you wish, but it takes a little while to connect to the ISP.

It pays to unplug the wireless router say once a week because your Internet Service Provider issues your router a new IP address each time you power up your router (leave it unpowered for 30secs or so before you power it up). This prevents hackers locking on to your IP address permanently especially when you get a different one when you power up your router..

Hello, there is no need to unplug anything, you may want to buy a power strip and plug the computer and router into it then you can switch it on and off, (that is if your doing this to save power)

My LINKSYS as for password, it is locked


Press and hold the reset button of the Linksys router using a pointed object (like a paper clip or pen) for 30 seconds.


The reset button is located in the back of the Linksys router closest to an Ethernet port.

The button is recessed to protect you from accidentally resetting the modem.


Unplug the Linksys router while pressing the reset button.


Shut down your computer for one minute.


Plug the Linksys router back into the wall outlet.


Reboot your computer.


Open your web browser to access a website.

Type the below in the address bar if you want to reset your password:

http://192.168.1.1


A prompt from the site will request a user name and password.

The user name stays blank, or, in some models, is "admin".


Navigate to the security tab. Input your new password to protect unauthorized access to your router


hope this helps

How do the cables connect? Which cable goes where?


Step 1:
Connect the broadband modem to the router's WAN or Internet port.
Step 2:
Connect the computer to any available numbered port (1, 2, 3 or 4).
NOTE: In this example, we'll connect the computer to port number 3.

3678-003.png

NOTE: It is advisable to connect the computer to one of the Ethernet (1, 2, 3 or 4) ports when setting up the router for the first time. If you have successfully configured the router using a wireless computer, unplug the Ethernet cable which connects the computer to the router for you to have wireless Internet connection. For instructions on how to connect the wireless computer to go online using the Linksys router, click here.

Step 3:
Make sure the power adapter is plugged in to an available power outlet.

Check if the corresponding LEDs on the router are lit. For instructions, click here.

I'm trying to access my wireless Linksys router to secure it.


First inplug power from router via the jack(not the wall outlet) and then unplug the cable going to the modem, take the blue ethernet cable that comes with router and plug into internet port now you can secure your router without worrying about internet threats. Open your web browser , in the url bar type 192.168.1.1 hit enter and a window should open, asking for username/password if you have not set one the default is admin in the username field then hit enter. If you have already password connected it and forgot password you need to unplug everything from router and then hold down reset button on back. There will be a screen that will walk you through all aspects of setup, security, firewall, wirless setup , wireless security, and it will give you a break down of all options on the right side of each window. Important to setup a passkey!!! Otherwise people can get into your network easy. once setup plug blue cable into ethernet port and modem cable into internet port. plug in power and you should be set. The cd that came with router should be first used. Do not broadcast wireless ssid and use wireless pin to connect computer.

Also change channel type in wireless option 4,6 and 11 channel are best.

2Wire 473 router problem


Take the modem and plug it into a GFCI outlet. You can find one in the bathroom or the kitchen.

If the power light comes on solid green and the dsl comes on red then the modem is good. Was it plugged into a power strip by the computer? If so, plug it straight into a wall outlet.

If the power light comes on solid red then the modem has hardware failure. I would contact your ISP and have them replace it if it is still underwarranty.

Using a ppoe connection to a DI-524 is it necessary to put a modem in line?


DSL connection:

Computer -> Router(Dlink) -> DSL Modem -> Telephone wall jack/outlet

OR

Computer -> DSL Modem -> Telephone wall jack/outlet

PPPOE = using a username/password combination to authenticate the connection to the ISP.
