A couple times a year I have to reset my WRT54G back to the factory defaults. There are a couple of methods to do this.

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. The image below (courtesy of Linksys) shows where the button is located.
All the lights or on.On my router.But I cant it on - linksys-reset.png 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.

Can't get to internet. says i'm hooked to internet but cant go any where.


Check the lights on your modem and make sure that it is connecting. If it is, power off the modem (unplug it normaly) and the router (same unplug). Now wait a few mins, power the modem back on first and wait for all the lights to turn green (some cable modem will have a yellow light). Now plug in the router and wait for all its lights to come on. Now try the internet again. If this fails disconnect the router from the modem (ethernet cable) and plug your computer directly into it. Restart the modem as you did before and when all the lights are on, try internet again. If you have internet at this point the problem is in the router somwere, if not call your internet service provider.

Computer can't find the router


Configure your router first, by doing that you need a ethernet cable (cat 5 will do). Connect your computer to your router using ethernet cable and open internet explorer, type in the ip address of your router and press enter. After that, you will be ask for username and password, just key in your username and password (if you cant remember, reset your router and key in the default username and password of your router). Once your done, go to internet setup and you can configure everything there. Hope it helps you.

DI 624- Cant connect from router to computer


Hi mark - please don't rate this til it's fixed. Hook it up the way you had it. i.e. modem>router>pc. Try it, probably won't work. Unplug the power on your modem and the router. After 60 seconds plug in your modem. When all the lights return to normal (except the activity light), plug in your router. Give it 20 seconds or so. Try it and let me know what happens. Thanks.
