On the rear of the router is a recessed reset button. You'll need something like a pen point or a straightened paperclip to press it. Turn off the router (pull out the AC adapter plug), the plug it back in while pressing the reset button. After the lights on the router quit blinking, let go of the button. This will reset the router to factory settings. When you go to //192.168.1.1 and are prompted for username and password, the username is blank and the password is admin. (It's possible the username may be admin and the password is password. This was in some versions of the router.) Then you can set your router up again the way you want.

Wireless security


I think you should upgrade the firmware on your router.
After upgrading the firmware reset the router and reconfigure it manually.
I will also suggest you to create a new wireless network and use security modem WPA.
Try to connect to the new wireless network and see if that works.

I want lock my linksys


1
Open your web browser.

2
Go to "http://192.168.1.1." This is the URL of your Linksys router's settings utility.

3
Sign in using the router's user name and password. You assigned this information yourself when you initially set up the browser.

4

Click "Wireless," then "Security."

5
Click on the drop-down menu you see on screen and select "WEP." This is a form of encryption for the wireless signal on your router. Type a word or phrase into the box below and click "Generate." This will turn the word or phrase you have selected into an encrypted password. Write down the password that is generated, as you will immediately need it to connect to your wireless network. When you're finished, click "Save." Your Linksys router (and the wireless network it broadcasts) are now locked down.

Thanks.

I had unsecured wireless router, today i tried to make it secure and locked myself out


to factory default your router push the "reset" button on the back for about 10 seconds then release. once the router has rebooted it will be back at factory defaults.

The default ip address is 192.168.1.1

you can leave the user name field blank and the default password is admin.

Card doesn't connect to router.


This could be cause by many things. Check your router and see if there are any wireless security or locked mac addresses (locked networks).You can always reset the settings it by pushing and holding the reset button at the back of the router. Also, is the card able "see" the router? If it cant "see" the router, you are probably not in range that the router, once again, has a locked network.

Linksys Adapter and 2wire router


  1. ensure that a wireless connection is created in control panel on the pc, it may not even be attempting to connect
  2. ensure that the router wireless is turned ON, it may have been turned off as a security measure when no wireless pcs were used
  3. The security settings on the adaptor may be set to the office network and locked
    wep password at home is different or not enabled, so the secured adaptor will not connect.
make any changes from a cable connected pc (no chance of data loss)
access the routers settings page and check the settings,
then ensure the adaptor rom if present is set to the same settings

Wireless Network Security


There are two versions of that router. One of them has a button on the front which will put the router into a known state, and reset everything. Both versions have a small hole on the back of the router (near the power plug, I believe) with a button inside. Use a paperclip to hold that button down for 5 to 10 seconds, then reset the power to the router, and it should be back to it's defaults.
