Loosen the nut that holds the bit and sometimes you have to drive the bit into the router a little to get the collet to release.

How do I change bits on P/Cable 690LR?


If the collet was tightened without a bit in it, it may have been squeezed so it is too small for the bit shank. Completely unscrew the collet from the router and see if the bit will go into it. If not, you can try forcing an old bit in using your vice, and then using as hammer and punch to remove the bit, but most likely you will have to get a new collet. Just search "Porter Cable router parts to find a source.

How do I change bits....have not used router in years


Most routers have a "Pin" that can be depressed to lock the router spindle. But first, rotate the spindle to match a small hole in the spindle with the pin. With the spindle locked in place, use a wrench (routers often come with this) to loosen the "collet" which holds the router bit. The collet nut will turn counterclockwise when loosening the nut, when looking directly at the bottom end of the router bit, i.e. when looking down at the router when the router itself is up side down.

To install a bit, reverse the process above. Do not overtighten. About a on-eighth turn past handtight will suffice. The collet or the threaded end of the spindle can be stripped out.

Hope this helps.

Have bought a new t v {panasonic viera} also bought a wireless LANadaptor to link up with my rooter for internet accessbut keeps asking for encryption key


Ken,

You need to use the same encryption key that you provided when you connect any other wireless device to your wireless network. If you have never set up any device to connect wirelessly, you should do so now. On page 12 & 13 of the manual, you'll find detailed instructions on how to set up and more importantly, secure your wireless network with a 64 or 128 bit WEP key. Once you have logged in and see the screen shown on the bottom of page 12, do NOT click on "Run Wizard". Instead, simply click the "Wireless" button. Make sure you make note of the SSID (or change the SSID) and enter a new WEP encryption key (do not leave the keys unchanged or blank!) before navigating away from this page. If you choose a 64 bit key, you can provide a 10 "string" consisting of digits 0 - 9 and a - f. I like to use a telephone number because they are the correct length and there are plenty I know "in my head" and never forget them. You can pick whatever you like. You might want to write this info on a piece of paper and tape to the router for easy reference later. You should not change any other values in the router's settings or you may not be able to connect to the internet.

If you have previously set up other devices to connect to the router wirelessly, you'll have to update them with the new WEP key and SSID (if you changed it).

Read page 30 of the manual to learn how to change the Username and Password from the default settings.

That's it. I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Hi,

I do not recommend that you use WEP for security as this is no longer a secure method for wireless network.

Setting up a wireless network can be a bit tricky at times, but if you follow this step by step guide for Linksys routers, you will have your wireless network up and secure in no time.
It will walk you through resetting the wireless router and quickly setting up a securing your network.

How do i change the bit on router?


On my older Sears router there is a lever on the base near the collet nut that you slide to engage the motor shaft to lock the motor shaft for bit changes. On newer models you may have a button or different mechanism to lock the shaft. After the shaft is locked you can use a small wrench to loosen the collet nut, usually by turning it counter-clockwise (viewed from the base). Once the nut is loose the bit should slide out (sometimes the bit is stuck in the collet and the nut may need to come all the way off to get them apart). Just replace the bit with a new bit with the same shaft diameter, tighten the nut, and you are set. If the new bit has a different shaft diameter than the old bit you may need to change the collet also (in general, different collets are used with different bit shaft diameters).

Craftsman Router will not power on


You definitely have a faulty switch. I used to have the same router and had the same problem. I had to take the switch apart and clean it. I got tired of the unreliability and bought a new Milwaukee.

Belkin wireless g router


Hi there,
you might need to reset your router:
 
On the back of your router there is a reset button, press and hold that when power on, until all the lights are blinking simultaneously (about 30 sec).
Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router. DO NOT use a wireless connection, use a cable.
Open your web browser and type the IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, clickSubmit.
Click Security under Wireless menu.
Under Security, Select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bit WEP).
Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength). You may also enter a pass phrase and have the router generate a key for you. Example (0102030405060708090a0b0c)
Apply the settings. Please write down the key – You will need it later to configure your wireless computers with the same key.
Remember to set an admin password before you close down, other vice anyone can access you router and change the setup and admin password.
 
/regards
