Re: encore 802.11 g wireless router

Generally routers can be configured using a web browser. But first we need the manual for the router to know what we are doing. Using the router link below look on your router and try to match the model numbers in red on the left under wireless with your router. If that does not work try matching with the contents of the select a product drop down list box in the top center of the window.

Router link

Second -- assuming this router is had a previous owner or was used in another location we need to get access to the router.

If the router currently does not work with your current ISP as indicated you may want to reset the router using instructions from the manual -- reply to this message if you need help.

If you believe the router may contain useful information we need to try to get the router's IP address.

Assuming your computer runs windows XP try this. --

Connect the computer to the LAN (not WAN) portion of the router -- this is probably 4 consecutive ports to plug cables into. Power up both the computer and the router (not connection to the internet required.

Click on Start
then All Programs
then Accessories
then Command Prompt
type -- ipconfig -- (8 letters) and press enter.

Report the resulting display of one or more adapters, ip addresses, subnet masks and default gateways here Iand I will help with the next step.

If you can provide a web link to your ISP's help site -- we will probably be able to conffigure the router for your use with your ISP.

I need to set a password on my router so no one else can acsess it

Hi coachman2526,

I would like to help you with your concern regarding your Wireless Routers password / security.

I believe that when you say password on your Router so no one else can access it that you mean no one will be able to get internet connection from your Router is that correct?.

Follow these steps below to secure your Wireless connection to prevent others from accessing your Routers Wireless signal.

* First open your Internet Explorer browser, clear the address bar and type in your Encore IP address which is then press Enter on the keyboard.
* Once you have the Encore settings page, click on the Wireless tab on the left of the settings page.
* In the Wireless settings select enable on the wireless, and on the SSID you change it to your name so you can detect your router once you connect wireless.

I hope this will be helpful regarding your concern.

Have a nice day,

No internet on PC when cables going through router

Hello there,

You have to start from the beginning and my solution would be:

1) Remove any connections(also don't forget to turn of wifi on your laptop) to router and except the power cord. With the unit powered ON locate the reset pinhole on the back of router.

2) Press and hold reset button for at least 15 secs. then release, wait for 20-30 secs. before the router can completely rebooted.

3) Configure your Computer IP address to “Obtain an IP address automatically” .

4) Connect internet cable to router on port labeled "WAN". Connect PC to any LAN ports available.

5) Now lets configure wireless router. Open any browser you have (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.). On the address bar type: "" (without quotes). Default username: admin ; default password: admin click "OK".

6) Go through "SETUP WIZARD" until you reach the "Setup WAN Interface" page. On "WAN Access Type:" select "DHCP" then click next.

7) You may configure your "Basic Wireless Settings" to Public or Private until finished configuring.

8) On "Operation Mode" be sure you operate on "Gateway" mode.

That's it! Hope this helps.

Internet connection speed of the Encore ENHWI-G2

if you're router is in the B+G setting, try setting it to the B setting, this is because the wireless adapter in the i-phone/i-touch uses only the B setting, sucks for most part.. but that got my i-phone working like a charm.. hope this helps
