Question about Linksys WRT300N Wireless Router
I have a Linksys WRT300N router. The problem is that I do not have wireless internet connection. Moreover, I have a secure network (WPA). However, when I entered the wpa password, it does not accept it. Then I ping the router, I do not get good ping (request time out). If I put a network cable between the cable modem and my laptop, I don't have any problems connecting to the web. I go to view wireless networks, I can see my ssid, click connect and entered password and doesn't work. Instead I sometimes get a unsecured network, sometime I don't. I've checked the router settings and everything seems OK. I'm a bit confused here. Thank you for your help.
What I would recommend, would be to give the router a factory reset. To do so, you'll need a paper clip first. On the back of the router, you should see a pinhole-sized rubber nub of a button labeled reset. To reset, unplug the router from power, then press and hold that little reset button in, and plug the router back into power (you might have to do some nifty acrobatics for this one, or get a friend to give you a hand). Keep holding the reset button in for about 20 seconds, and let go. If I recall, you probably won't see any real indication on the router itself that it worked, however, you should be able to log back into the router manually, and set your connections back up again, in the event that the settings may have become corrupted somehow. If this doesn't work though, then there may be further problems, in which case, you may need to get onto Linksys' website, and download the most recent firmware for your model of router, and then try setting it up again. If that doesn't work, then the router may be experiencing some kind of hardware failure, in which case, if you are within the manufacturer's warranty, contact Linksys for repair or replacement (or through your place of purchase). If you are not within warranty, then buying a new replacement router may be your only other option. Hope this helps!!
