To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Cisco - Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Cisco - Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

You might need to reset the password. In order to do this, follow these directions:

  1. Console into the router, then power cycle it. As its rebooting hit the "break | pause" button on your keyboard, and you get to the rommon1> prompt.
  2. Then type rommon1>confreg 2142 rommon2>reset
  3. The router comes back on as if it were new---answer no to the first question, and sometimes it asks a second question (do you want to terminate autoinstall, or something...)---answer yes to the secondquestion if it asks. Then hit enter and you get router> in a few seconds.
  4. Then router>en router#copy start run

create a new account:
  1. router#conf t
  2. router(config)#username bob priv 15 password bob
set register back:
  1. router(config)#confreg 0x2102
  2. router(config)#exit
  3. router#wr
  4. router#reboot

and that should let you login with bob/bob

SOURCE: forgot password for wireless router

Are you speaking about the password of the router or the password of the wireless network ?
If you don't know the password of the router , then you will need to reset the router and use the default password of the router.
Once you reset the router, you will need to reconfigure it.
If you are looking for the wireless password, you can find it on the set up page of the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router.

SOURCE: CANT ACCRS WIRELESS ROUTER WRT110 BY LINKSYS CISCO

Sounds like the router needs to be reset..

Before you do a reset try to login to the router by typing 192.168.1.1 in the webrowser ..

If that fails then look on the back or under the router and there is a reset button. Press and hold for 10 sec ... The let sit for a min or 2 then try logging into it..

Note: That the router will have to be setup again. Default login admin for the password .. don't enter any usernames

If you are confused with the complicated procedure to reset or change the password on a router, or if you are trying to configure a Cisco router, but a password is blocking you from enable mode, don't worry, just do the steps as follows, password reset on a router is no longer upset to everyone.<br /><br />First, be informed that what you need:<br />.<a href="http://www.router-switch.com/Price-cisco-routers_c1">Cisco Router</a><br />.Computer<br />.Internet Connection<br />.Blue Serial Cable<br /><br />Guide for You to Reset Password on a Cisco Router:<br />1.

PuTTy is a terminal emulator application which can act as a client for the SSH, Telnet, rlogin, and raw TCP computing protocols (PuTTy on Wikipedia).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PuTTY<br /><br />2. Connect one end of the blue serial cable to the Cisco Router and the other to your computer. Open up the Putty program on your computer and select the radio button next to "serial" on the right-hand side of the start window. Click on the "Open" button in the bottom right-hand corner of the Putty start window to open the terminal.<br /><br />3. Power the Cisco Router on.

How do I set up a valet m20 router with a computer that runs windows xp 2000?


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa!
If you still have the installation disc that came with the router, you can go ahead and run the disc and follow the instructions. The Cisco Connect Software will be installed when you run the supplied Setup CD or Easy Setup Key on a computer. Once Cisco Connect is installed, you can then use its features to easily manage and share your network resources.

QUICK TIP: Create a Desktop shortcut to launch Cisco Connect easier.
Windows XP

Step 1:
Click on the kb21465-001_en.png button and select All programs.

Step 2:
On the All Programs sub-menu, locate and select Cisco Connect. This should launch Cisco Connect and take you to its main screen.

kb21465-002_en_v7.png

NOTE: If you are unable to locate Cisco Connect, it may not be installed yet. Download the latest Cisco Connect setup wizard from the Cisco Support page. After downloading, click on the Cisco Connect icon to launch the installation wizard.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

try to update the Firmware of the router. You can do this by opening the Cisco Connect Software under all programs. It should ask for an update when it initializes, if not then power cycle your network.
