Hi,

You can actually configure the wireless security without the CD. Just open a browser and type in the address bar 192.168.1.1.
It will prompt you for the router's username and password. Type in the router's password (if you changed it) if not, the default password is admin.

Go to Wireless>Wireless Security.

On this page you can change your wireless name or SSID and you can enable WEP or WPA/WPA2.

Make sure you that you enter the same wireless keys on your wireless computers as soon as you save the changes on your router because you will lose your connection if you do this on a wireless computer.

Cisco E3200 router configuration lost


The Cisco connect software came on the CD in the box with the router. If was used to configure the router when new. This can be used to fix the router now. I could guide you through a manual configuration but the software is a much faster easier method. I would recommend you try that route. Get the CD and run from there if you are worried about phishing.

No proplem you don't need a software cd to secure the router. Please follow the steps


Click the below link

I would like to password the router. I never set up the password when I installed the router. what is the best way to install the new password?


The password can only be changed by the management software for your router. If you do not have the network manager software on your computer, then use the installation CD or download it on-line. You must physically connect the router to your computer with an ethernet cable. The rest should be easy: changing the network name, selecting security, setting password. Good luck. Bry

I have lost the installation cd to my linksys router and I need software to change the wep password. I cant seem to remember what I have set it to before.


You can know your password without disk too. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Got a netgear wireless modem from a friend and she


The Netgear site should have to software to download, but with the Router connected to the computer you really should be able to connect to the router's onboard software by, using Web Address http://192.168.1.1 and logging in to the router. Use User Name admin and leave the password blank. Go ahead and set up all the goodies you need, like Security and Pass Codes. I have4 bee4n using a Netgear Router in my home network for many years and have no complaints! This software is the exact same software they have on the setup disk.

I lost my installation cd for d-link dl624 haw can instal my router


Installing does not really need the disk, as the software is built in to your router. With your computer's LAN port connected with CAT-5 cable, go to http://192.168.0.1 and log in with User Name admin and no password (just press enter in that field). Once logged in to router, go to Wireless section, set SSID (Network Name) and choose security and passcode. This is basically what the disk does for you, and after this you should have Wireless Internet as well.

Speed touch 576 - lost CD. Download online possible?


You can download the software for your router here: http://info.aol.co.uk/help/broadband/router_drivers_install.html

There is also a guide there for installing the software right underneath it!

When you run through the setup , it will actually help you setup all of the security , such as the WEP...so that should clear up that problem for you.

If it does not , you can also login to the router to change this information by doing this:
  1. Open up your web browser (Internet Explorer/Firefox)
  2. Enter the address 192.168.1.254 in the address bar
  3. You will be prompted for a username - "Administrator"; leave the password blank
  4. You will now be on the home screen of the router, click the link for "Configuration"
Both ways will enable you to change the routers encryption so that you know the password.....best of luck!

No Installation CD


No it's not needed, the main things you need to know is the IP address that the router is set to and it's login details which hopefully your friend can give you. (default IP: 192.168.1.1, default login and password: admin and admin)

After that, as long as your HS Internet modem has an ethernet port you would connect that to the Linksys and your PC's to the routers LAN ports. You can then also login to the router and setup the wireless part if you have any wireless devices to use with it.
