Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router

1 Answer

I am having trouble setting up my WRT150N

I am setting up my WRT150N router. After using the setup wizard a dialog box pops up and says the router cannot access the internet. My ISP uses DHCP so everything should be automatic. After recieving this error I unplugged my Modem for 10 seconds and plugged it back with no change. I would appreciate some assistance.

    To diagnose your particular problem, I would need to see the contents of your router's "status" page.

2 Press and hold the "Reset" button.

  1. Begin setup of your Linksys Wireless Router by first plugging in the power. Give it 10 seconds or so to initialize and then plug an ethernet cable into your wall jack and into the port on the back of the router marked Internet. Next get another ethernet cable and plug one end into your laptop and the other into one of the ports labeled 1-4 on the router. Your computer is now properly connected to the router to begin its setup and configuration.
  2. Next open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Enter admin for both the username and password.
  3. You should see the Setup page shown below.

  4. On this screen you should change the Router Name from its default value to something unique so that your Base Station will not be confused with another. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save Settings then click Continue when the Settings are successful dialog is displayed.
  5. Next, click on the Wireless tab at the top of the settings screen. Change the Wireless Network Name (SSID) from the default value to something unique (you can use the same name you set as your Router Name in the previous step. Then Disable the Wireless SSID Broadcast option and click Save Settings and then Continue when the Settings are successful dialog is displayed.
  6. Now click on the Wireless Security subsection at the top of the page. In order to password protect your wireless network first use the Security Mode dropdown box to select WEP and then from the WEP Security dropdown box select 128 bits 26 hex digits. Choose a password between 6 and 8 characters and type it into the Passphrase box. Then click Generate. Finally click Save Settings and then Continue when the Settings are successful dialog is displayed. You may also select WPA encryption, however not all network cards support this, so check your documentation first.
  7. Finally click on the Administration tab at the top of the page. Change the default password for accessing your wireless router setup pages by typing a new one into the Router Password field and then confirming it. This should be a different password than the one you setup for WEP encryption, but should also be atleast 6 to 8 characters in length. Click the Save Settings button at the bottom of the Filter List window and then Continue when the Settings are successful dialog is displayed.

How to install microsoft office


Insert the installation CD and wait for the setup wizard to load. After you insert the installation CD into your computer's CD-ROM drive, a dialog box will appear prompting you to begin installation. If this dialog box does not appear, double-click your CD drive and explore the contents of the CD. Double-click the file called "setup.exe" to start installation.
Select an installation type. In the setup wizard, click the "Next" button until the dialog box asks you to select an installation type. You must select either "Minimum," "Typical" or "Advanced" installation. Although the "Typical" installation is recommended, you can select "Minimum" if you wish to use as little hard disk space as possible to install Microsoft Office XP. Selecting "Advanced" will require you to select individual components you wish to install. Do not choose this installation type if you are unfamiliar with these components.
Finish the setup wizard and restart your computer. Click "Next" and wait for the progress bar to indicate that the installation was successful. Click "Finish" to close the dialog box and finish installation. When the dialog box closes, restart your computer

I need a driver for my linksys wireless router wrt150n for a windows 7 operatimg system the disc i got with it is not compatible with windows 7. Please help


You really do NOT need a driver for your router (Routers do not have drivers.) All the CD contains is a setup wizard and the User Guide.

Go to Linksys' webpage here and look into the FAQ's. There are some articles on how to setup your router with Windows 7. You can also download the user guide (under Downloads) and follow the steps outlined in Chapter 5.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

I accidentally hit the reset button on top of my Lyksys wrt150n and the modem is now locked. How can I unlock it?


What do you mean by 'locked'?

If you are asking about the password then resetting it has changed the password to default one. The default password is "admin" (without quotes).

If want to know the internet settings then you need to contact your Internet Service Provider, only they can help you in this matter.

Thank you.
