Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router

2 Answers

Cannot connect through the router

I needed to reset our router to change the wireless password for connection. Now I can't get the internet to go through the router to either the desktop or the laptop via wireless. When the internet cable is connected directly to the desktop, it still works fine, but once the internet cable is connected to the router and the ethernet cable between the router and desktop, I can't get any, I guess, flow. Any help you could provide would really help me get out of the doghouse!!

With ethernet connected
Click start
click run
type cmd then ok
type ipconfig
take note of gateway address
type this into a web browser
it will ask for username password try these:
admin/admin
admin/blank
blank/admin
admin/password
root/admin
root/password
root/blank
by blank I mean enter nothing
When you login to the modem click on the wireless settings and record the wpa/wep key this is what you need to login through wireless.

How do i reset the password to my 2wire router an connect a wireless laptop


Is your 2Wire Router by AT&T, if so the password is on the side or bottom of the router. Look for Network Key or Network Password on the router.

Once you have that, you simply go to your laptop, and try connecting to your wireless router. It will be the one with the strongest signal if you don't know your SSID. Once you click connect, it will ask you for the password/passphrase or key, type in what you found on the router.

There is really no need to reset the password unless you have some other reason. But there are 2 ways to reset the router's password, you will need to have a computer that is connected to the router with a network cable (most times this is a desktop already connected). Then you will need to know the router's IP Address to type into a internet browser. It will be a set of numbers such as 192.168.1.1 that you would type into the address bar where you normally type www to get to a web page. Once you have the right ip address you will need the router's login id and password. Most times this is set to the default unless whoever set it up changed it. Once you are in the router then you go to the wireless and wireless security area to change the password. If you don't know the ip address or the userid and password for the router, then you can google it on the internet.

If your internet provider is AT&T you might be better off calling them to reset your router's password. They can walk you through it.

I have a nrtwork konektion all I nead is to fine the password and use the internet line


Are you using a wireless router to connect to the internet?

If you have forgotten what your connection to router's password is, I suggest to reset the router by locating the reset hole. Just push it with an unfolded paper clip for about 10 seconds and it will be back to default settings which is no password.


Hope this helps.

I do not remember my password How can I go back to it


hi

just reset your router and re setup your new password

Configure the Router 1. Step 1
Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter."
2. Step 2
Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.
3. Step 3
Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."
4. Step 4
Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.
5. Step 5
Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.
6. Step 6
Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.

I lost my password and lost the WGT624 installation CD, how can i get the router to work on a new laptop


If you have lost the password to access the router page then you have to reset the router

Ensure that you have all the details regarding your internet connection before resetting the router

If you reset the router you can run the smart setup wizard and get connected by entering correct information in all the pages of the wizard

If you are looking for the wireless password:
--------------------------------------------------------------
Access your router page ( Open Internet Explorer --> Type 192.168.1.1 and enter it--> Login name(default)-admin, Password(default)-password) --> GO to wireless settings,under Wireless settings you will find the wireless password.

Linksys wireless G router wrt54gs no connection


Did you try holding the reset button in for 30 seconds or more?

A couple times a year I have to reset my WRT54G back to the factory defaults. I have PC's and laptops connected via CAT5 and wireless. There are a couple of methods to resetting to factory default.

Reset Button Note:
Resetting the router to the factory defaults will delete any changes you have made to the router, including any security settings. This should be used as a last resort.

The first method involves simply pressing a button located on the back of the router.
To reset your router, use the following steps:
  1. Press the reset button for 30 seconds. The settings should now be returned to the factory default settings, meaning any changes you had made would be deleted.
  2. Open up your Web browser and enter “192.168.1.1′ in the address bar.
  3. For the login, leave a blank ID and enter “admin” as the password.
The router has now been reset. You'll need to go back in and set up any passwords or wireless security you had set up before.
Through the Web Administration Pages The second method involves logging into the Web administration pages of the router. Use the following steps to reset the router using this method:
  1. Open your Web browser and enter the IP address of your router. By default, the address is “192.168.1.1′.
  2. Enter your user ID And password when prompted. Hopefully this has been changed, but if it hasn’t, the default is no ID and “admin” as the password.
  3. At the top of the Web page, click “Administration” and then “Factory Defaults”.
  4. Beside “Restore Factory Defaults”, click “Yes”.
  5. Now click the “Save Settings” button at the bottom of the Web page.
The router should now be reset to the factory defaults. Again, you'll need to go back in and set up any passwords or wireless security you had set up before.

Hello, You can reset the router to default. On the back of router push in the reset button/hole for 10-15 seconds. The defaults will be: IP address 192.168.1.1 User name admin. You shouldn't need a password. From there you can change username, password, SSID and enable WEP or WPA security. Hope this helps.
