    You say all your other tablets all get the router signal and work great? Well in that case the one tablet that doesn't work is defective, not the router. If the router was the issue then none would work. Or am I misunderstanding you?

It looks like all your devices by themselves are working fine.
Good start.
If you took the router out of your office I assume that the settings from the office and your home are different, which causes the setup not to work properly.

First of all you should find out which hardware version of the router you have and download the manual from here, so you have the information at hand when you're not online.

Then you want to rest the router to factory settings, so you start clean. In order to do so, use the Factory Default Reset button: First, turn off the router's power. Second, press and hold the default reset button then turn on the router's power, until the SYS LED lights up (about 3 seconds). Last, release the reset button and wait for the router to reboot.

Follow the instructions in the manual form page 8 on onwards with a special view on setting up PPPoE. Have your information form your DSL provider handy (Account name and password).
The default webpage for the router interface is http://192.168.1.1
Username and password are both "admin".

Do not enable any wireless security until everything is working fine.

Make sure later to change the password to something else, so no one can "take over" your router.

If this solution did not help, please don't rate it as "Thanks for trying" or so, but leave a comment instead and I will check back and we can work form there.

Good luck!

Its hard to diagnose cause the process starts long before your current setup..ie, programming your router. So I have attached a website from Microsoft that walks you thru the steps to set up your wireless home network so you can backtrack...good luck and let me know if you have any problems. Pls rate this solution.

Not having defined the problem very well it is hard to answer.
  1. Press the reset button on the back of the router for 10 seconds. This will reset to factory defaults.

Have Internet connection direct from modem but not through router, how do I repair that connection through the router?


HI and welcome to FixYa!

We are going to flush your adapter settings, then reset your router as a couple of trouble shooting steps first.

click start, all programs, accessories, right click command prompt..

click run as admin

then.. id like you to type in exactly..

netsh winsock reset

( press enter)

ipconfig /release

( press enter)

ipconfig /flushdns

(press enter)

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

(press enter)

now.. restart your computer..

Now; for your router,

Turn router around;

Find the small pinhole usually located by the power cord;

Stick something like a paperclip in it and press down firmly for 1 minute;

wait until you see the lights blink and then go out;

Then; unplug the power cord from router for about half a minute;

Then, plug it back in.

This is the only way it will finalize resetting and it takes away your encryption;

resets your network name back to Linksys.

Let me know how this worked out for you. If my solution helped you, please rate this solution!
It doesn't cost anything and only takes a second, but it is greatly appreciated.

Internet want start


Hi mtaylor9,

Routers are great but they do have issues with distance, or certain walls that can interupt the connections. My suggestion is to have your daughter when she is connected to walk away from the router step by step, and continue this until it drops. This will give you the distance it will work for you. Then either move the router closer to her destination, or you can get another router than can act as a passthrough. The last option is to run ethernet wire everywhere which really defeats the purpose of wireless.

Good Luck

Moving internet to another room


As long as you have an active DSL connection in the new room, yes you should be fine. All settings are saved in the router's flash memory and won't be lost by disconnecting the power. Make careful note of where everything is plugged in (a digital photo is great!) and in the worst case, you can move it all back until you figure out what is wrong.
