Check to see if your router has the factory production sticker on the bottom (Looks like) Admin: admin Pass: admin
Press the reset button on the back of the router and hold it for 10 seconds. BE Aware! This will reset the router back to a factory default setting - you will have to set the router back up with all new information. New wireless connection password.
Have a great night..

You could try to connect to your router with a CAT5e network cable. Then open your browser and open the webpage http://192.168.1.1
When prompted for your username and password, try password 'admin' (without quote marks) and leave username empty.

If that doesn't work, reset your router and configure all the options over again (make sure you have all required information for the settings). For more information, look at this knowledge base article: kb.linksys.com/Linksys/GetArticle.aspx?docid=6af0fc7147664d2eaef47a2189a1ffce_E2500_FAQs.xml

SOURCE: Problem with linksys router

You won't be able to get into the internet until you configure your router - hence the security screen. Go to the Linksys book (or "quick start) that came with it should have given you the router's address and password (for instance http://43.221.16.55.and linksys. It'll also give you password instructions for when the security screen comes up. ) Once you're into your router's configuration page. You should be able to follow the steps and then you'll be home free. Good Luck or get back to me.

SOURCE: Linksys routetr problem

HI,
The problem can be caused, because of two reasons, one the router profile on the computer has got corrupted and second the router itself. Have you tried resetting the router to factory defaults.. Caution: all wireless security settings and user name and passwords would go back to factory defaults.

1.Disconnect all cable from the back of the router.
2. Shut down your computer and the DSL box
3.Press the reset button, using a paper clip at the back of the router.Keep it pressed for 5 seconds
4. Disconnect the power cord to the router
5. Switch on the Dsl box, wait for the lights to stablize
6. Reconnect the interenet cable and the power cable to the router and power it on.
7 Let the lights stabalise on the router and power on the computer.

Check if that resolves the problem, if not we might need to update the router.


Thanks
Proton

SOURCE: WPA for linksys

I would guess you are entering something incorrect with your security. If the wireless adapter on your XBOX wants a WPA then the wireless it is picking up has security on it however, it may be incorrectly set using WEP or WPA radius. Here is what *I* would do. Log in to your wireless router and remove all security. Go back to your XBOX and look for the signal for your wireless network. Now try to connect. Wireless connections can be a pain to configure sometimes but start first with no security and work yourself up. IF you can't get it working with security, make up a goofy SSID with NO security but don't broadcast it then you can connect the manual way through your XBOX specifying the SSID (not broadcasted) and no security that should do it. (Just a side note for my XBOX I bought a cheap Belkin 4 port router made it an access point for my existing wireless network and hardwired my XBOX to it. Works fine.)

Go to: www.speedtest.net with a laptop on your network.

Find your speed. now repeat on same laptop plugged directly into the cable madem.

Do the settingsa change much?

If so, your network is at fault. If not, Comcast is lying to you.

How can I remove my neighbor from my network


Easiest thing to do, Change the password to your router. Once this is done, it will prevent your neighbor from any further access to your router and of course prevent internet access. Most all routers are simply a local web address for access. Example: 192.168.1.1 typed inside a browser address pane will take you inside the router. Check your router for setup procedures.

Have a great night..

Unable to access internet after connecting to network with kindle. Password was inserted.


Are all other devices able to access the internet through WiFi? If so, I'd reboot the Kindle and connect again. Check its network settings after it appears to connect to your wireless router and double check what IP address it is getting from your router. If you have a valid IP address on your Kindle then try to follow the instructions on this link and see if any of them help:

Forgot linksys e2500 wireless password


You could do a factory reset. This way, the unit will revert to the default username and password. You'll need to reconfigure all the settings though.

Forgot guest pw on cisco e2500


If a password was set by user, no one else will know it if you forget it.
If the password needs to be reset to factory, so you can log in with the "default" password AND RE-SETUP EVERYTHING, then you'll need to reset the Linksys E2500 to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.
The E2500 manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the E2500 from http://support.linksys.com/en-us/support/routers/E2500

I have WII and Linksys. Can not connect it to internet. Yes, I know my wireless password key.


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you need the Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.
Thanks for using Fixya.
