    No problem.. I'm gonna rate u and all..
    Just a question, I'm gonna try method 1 later.. I have to go somewhere :S
    And about:Method-2 :- Left in the column, click "System Tools" and then "Factory Settings". click "Restore" to start the reset. A message appears , click "OK" to continue. ..
    I think I have a bitt of time.. But, where do I find "Factory settings"? I hope it's not from the IP ADDRESS.. Coz u know I can't go in without user name and pass.

Press the reset button for 10 seconds (watch the lights, they will blink off after about 10 seconds).

Then get connected, wireless or wired.

From the manual: The standard login is sweex and the corresponding
password is mysweex.

Remember when you go back and reset to the factory setting. You will have to be directly plugged into router. To access the home page and make setting changes again like new passwords extra.

They keep saying i am keying in the wrong wireless password. Is this the router password or am i suppose to find another one. please help


My Linksys wireless router uses a different password to setup a wireless connection with the SSID (wireless account name) than the password for logging into the router for administrative purposes.

So I suspect you need a different password. However, without knowing which make/model of router you have, I can't help you identify where to find the information for your wireless setup.

Please add a comment with your router information for additional assistance.

I hope this helps.

Make sure you have set up the security on the router to match the type that can be handled by the ipad.

If you are using WPA2 AES encryption for example, you may want to verify that the ipad2 can connect to it. This could be the case with any type of encryption. If you are using WEP make sure you are choosing the correct bit level (64 bit vs. 128 bit etc)

I would recommend trying WPA TKIP encryption, it is pretty secure and usually pretty universally accepted.

Wireless router


Details are difficult in written form, so I will give you a feel of what to look for. Your laptop is probably seeing a neighbors wireless signal and yours. Your security issue is that you are not using WEP or WPA. You need to enable that on your wireless router and use a password you will remember; but is not guessable.

As for the going online, while your tooling around in the router, make sure DHCP is on. If your router is connected to a modem, you may need to ensure your modem is NOT using DHCP.
