Go to control panel > System> Hardware > Device Manager > scroll to your wireless network adapter and select it. Right click on it and select uninstall. Make sure though not to uninstall the device drivers. Now reboot the machine and let windows find the hardware and attempt to install the drivers. It will ask you (if it is connected to the internet by cable) if it can search windows update for an updated driver...answer yes and let windows do its thing. When it is done, you should be able to connect back to the internet via wireless. You just have to sign back on to your network with the security number.

Lost sbg6580 installation cd need download


You should not need the installation CD to setup the modem. You should be able to access all of the settings through a web browser on any computer that is connected to the modem. Just make sure the modem is on and open a web browser and go to the address of the modem which is typically 192.168.1.1 and it should give you a page with the settings. It will probably ask you to login, the username is normally admin, and the password is normally admin, password, or just left blank as the default.

LOST CISCO GUEST PASSWORD


Use a computer connected to the modem through a wired connection, and access the settings by opening a web browser and going to 192.168.1.1, login there, default username is admin and the default password is either admin or no password, from there in the wireless settings there should be a place with the guest password and you might not be able to see it which would mean that you would have to just change it.

Find wep key 3347nwg -006


Try Password: admin, 1234, serial number of unit (written underneath)

Or you could connect to it with a Ethernet Cable and open web browser and go to 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0 or 192.168.1.254 and you can access settings from there and change WEP password.

Last resort, just use the reset button on the unit.

My router wont work when it is connected to the modem. the message that on there says limited access


Hello,
If you already verified that your modem works if computer connected directly to it, try powering down router and modem. Start modem first and wait at least 2 minutes before starting router.
if this doesn't help you will need to verify that your wired connection to router works first before you can attempt to use wireless.
With your computer connected to the router try to open router setup page. Based on router type you should be able to access it from browser using: http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 you will need to login using default admin/admin account or according to router user manual. Configuration page will allow you to verify if you have Internet connection and configure other settings including wireless connection.

It wont connect to the internet wirelessly. I only have access to wireless and i know for sure that it is working on other devices.


Try rebooting your router and cable modem. Unplug the power cable from both the router and cable modem and leave them both unplugged for 10 seconds. Then plug in the router first and then the cable modem.

Unable to connect Acer One D250 netbook to 2wire modem. Limited or no connectivity. I can connect through wireless at work and hardwire.


With an Ethernet cable, connect from the netbook to a LAN port on the 2WIRE modem.

Access the built-in web-server on the 2WIRE modem, and configure the "wireless network settings" to your choice of SSID and network password/passphrase.

Then, from your computer, "View Available Wireless Networks",
and connect to the SSID that you have chosen.

Broadband wireless adapter limited connectivity issues


If the wireless security on the router is enabled, then the pre-shared key or encryption key on the router and PC should match.

To check the wireless settings, use the laptop to access the web interface of the router. Follow the steps below:

1 Using your Internet browser, go to http://dsldevice.lan or to the IP address of your router (by default: 192.168.1.254).
2 On the Home Network menu, click Wireless.
3 In the upper-right corner, click Details.
4 The wireless Access Point page appears. Under:
- Configuration, you can find the network name (SSID).
- Security, you can find the encryption.

On the PC wireless, access the wireless network connection. Select the SSID and then type the encryption key or pre-shared key.

Once the encryption key on the PC and router matches, then you should obtain an IP address and get online.

Belkin Modem Router not connecting to desktop


The wireless security on your router might be enabled.

1. In the address bar of your Internet browser, type "192.168.2.1". Then press the "Enter" key.

2. It will prompt for a password to access the Router’s Web-Based Advanced User Interface. By default the password is blank.

3. Go to Security, then Wireless.
- Check the wireless security settings, this should match the settings on your wireless computer.

4. On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!
