Re: Firmware

Here's the Linksys step-by-step guide for your router:

Are you connected to the wireless router with an ethernet cable? Generally, you want to hook it up this way first so you can configure it. If you are hooked up with a cable open your web browser and type in the following address: this should get you to the router's web page. The default login for linksys is username: blank, password: admin

See if you can connect to the router in this way. If you can then we can go through the next steps or you can try using the above link.

Good luck.

I forgot my password for my wireless router, and can not sign my wifes new phone up on our wifi

When your phone asks for the password, out in the Encryption key. If you didn't print this out when you installed the router, insert the CD and install the Easylink Advisor, which wil then show up down in your taskbar in the bottom right corner of your screen. Open it, click on the Support tab, and it will show all your settings. For the password requested on your smartphone, enter the encryption key from your settings in EasyLink Advisor. That did it for me. Good luck!

My wrt150n router cannot see the internet which is working. when I start setup in easylink advisor it establishes a new connection but I cannot see or manage it in advisor. Any ideas

Well ! this easy link advisor is not a good software to manage the network. It has some bugs. Some times even if you are able to go on line , it will show you that the router is not online. If you call the Linksys technical support, you will not get any technical support for the Easy link advisor. Even the Linksys is also not using Easy link advisor. They have a new software now called as network magic.

If you are not able to go online using the router, then you can try to set up the router maually. Ou don't need any CD or Manual or any software.

Wireless router is not working

Go to Here for Linksys EasyLink Advisor (LELA). With this software you can monitor the routers status and troubleshoot.

Most trouble shooting involves disconnecting the power to the cable modem and the wrt54 router for about 10-20 seconds. Then plug in the modem until it lights, then plug in the router. The Advisor will then get a new address.

It also shows a graphic picture of your whole system.

I have a wrt54 and use this whenever I have a problem. I fix it then turn it off.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck

Internet connection

I think you have the software LELA (linksys easylink advisor) installed in your computer. Sometimes if it's not updated you it will prompt that you're not connected to the internet though you have internet access.

1) update your LELA - go to
there's a field there that says enter model/serial number - just type in LELA - then click enter
- on the next page - click on get downloads then select version 3.1
- below there's an option that says download and drivers and you can see there LELA 3.1 just click on the download link and save it in your desktop folder

note: it's quite a big file - more than 200Mb
- before you install it make sure you uninstall the old LELA in your computer
- to uninstall it - just go to add/remove programs then remove linksys easylink advisor

hope this helps... Tech what you want

Exception from HRESULT: 0x88980406

There are known issues with the Linksys EasyLink Advisor (LELA). It is a very buggy piece of software that ends up causing a conflict with windows manager as indicated by your specific 0x error code. It is supposed to take the hassle out of setting up your wireless network using Linksys devices, but as you can see this isn't always the case.

The best thing to do, if you are technically inclined, is to uninstall LELA and manually configure your wireless network or hire a teenaged geek to do it for you. If you cannot do this, then try the following (no guarantees):
1. Download the latest version of LELA at and save it to your desktop.
2. If you're using XP then go to Start >> Control Panel, click on "Add/Remove Programs", find "Liknsys EasyLink Advisor" and uninstall it. If using Vista, go to Start >> Control Panel, click on "Programs", click on "Programs and Features", find "Linksys EasyLink Advisor" and uninstall it.
3. Reboot your computer.
4. Reinstall LELA by clicking on the LELA file you downloaded in step 1.
