No problem! What you need to do is phone your Internet Service Provider (your DSL service provider) help line and ask them to provide you the router internet protocol (IP) settings.
In no time you will be surfing the internet again.

What Brand Router do you have? If you want to reset to factory defaults, behind the router will be a small button a reset button, Push and hold that button for at least 5-10 seconds then let got this will reset the router back to factory defaults... and under the router must be a sticker where the Routers IP address should be indicated to access the GUI/Settings page.

Make sure that by trying to access the routers GUI or setting page that your are connected using Ethernet to be able to access the Routers GUI.

Once in the GUI settings Page check if the wireless radio is turned on to be able to access the router wireless to get connected to the internet.

I hope this helps.

How to log in to router


Open an internet browser, in the address area type in 192.168.0.1 (this is the normal address used by the router). Once the router access screen appears try usinfg the factory default login USER = ADMIN, PASSWORD = MOTOROLA.

If this does not work you can try using the reset button on the rear of the router to reset it's setting to factory default settings and try the above method again.

NOTE: If you are unsure about anything you can also try asking your ISP how to access the router settings. (If you received the router from an ISP). Otherwise use the manual at this internet location for more information. http://www.midcocomm.com/_files/files/SBG6580.pdf

My router has internet access but does not have Wireless function, i.e. WLAN light is off. also, when I type 192.168.1.1, it says Server is busy. i could not connect to the router via the internet.


First, try unplugging it and plugging it back in. The router may be locked up. If that doesn't work, take a pen or paper clip and press the small reset button on the back of the router. This will reset the router back to factory settings. If after resetting the router you still have no wireless function and cannot access the router through a browser, it may be time for a new router.

I cannot connect to the internet using my netgear n150 wireless router. The internet light is orange but the modem is working fine and I can connect to the router itself.


When the router is turned on, the Internet light turns amber for about 20 seconds and then turns green. If the light does not turn green, the router has a problem. If the Internet light is still amber 1 minute after turning on power to the router: a. The Internet is not accessible. Confirm that you have the correct internet setting. b. Clear the router's configuration to factory defaults. This will set the router's IP address to 192.168.1.1. c. Turn the power off and back on to see if the router recovers. If its still not working, reset to factory defaults. You can restore the factory default configuration settings that reset the router's user name to admin, the password to password, and the IP address to 192.168.1.1. To restore the factory default configuration settings: 1. Use a sharp object such as a pen or a paper clip to press and hold the restore factory settings button, located on the rear panel of the router, for about 5 seconds, until the Power light begins to blink (see "Back Panel" on page 4). 2. Release the restore factory settings button, and wait for the router to restart, and for the Power light to stop blinking and become solid green. The factory default settings will be restored so that you can access the router from your Web browser using the factory defaults.
