OMG BearWeb.... that was a great guide for the configuration....


But if you want to reset the router, just press the 'reset' button for about 5 or 10 seconds, and the router will return to the 'default' settings (you will have to configure it again OK?)

you can get the user guide from here:

Chapter 1: Connecting the Wireless-G Broadband Router

Hardware Installation

1. Locate an optimum location for the Broadband Router. The best place for the Broadband Router is usually at
the center of your wireless network, with line of sight to all of your mobile stations.
2. Fix the direction of the antenna. Try to place it in a position that will best cover your wireless network.
Normally, the higher you place the antenna, the better the performance will be. The antenna's position
enhances the receiving sensitivity.
3. Connect a standard Ethernet network cable to the Broadband Router’s Internet port. Then, connect the other
end of the Ethernet cable to your Cable or DSL Broadband modem.

4. Connect your network PCs or Ethernet devices to one of the Broadband Router’s numbered ports with a
standard Ethernet network cable.

5. Connect the AC Power Adapter to the Broadband Router's Power Socket and the other end into an electrical
outlet. Only use the power adapter supplied with the Broadband Router. Use of a different adapter Linksis wireless computer setup for WRT54G model - 82e145a.jpgbr />in product damage.

Chapter 2: Configuring the PCs

Overview
The instructions in this chapter will help you configure each of your computers to be able to communicate with
the Router.
To do this, you need to configure your PC’s network settings to obtain an IP (or TCP/IP) address automatically, so
your PC can function as a DHCP client. Computers use IP addresses to communicate with the Router and each
other across a network, such as the Internet.
First, find out which Windows operating system your computer is running. You can find out by clicking the Start
button. Read the side panel of the Start menu to find out which operating system your PC is running.
You may need to do this for each computer you are connecting to the Router.
The next few pages tell you, step by step, how to configure your network settings based on the type of Windows
operating system you are using. Make sure that an Ethernet or wireless adapter (also known as a network
adapter) has been successfully installed in each PC you will configure.

Configuring Windows 98 and Millennium PCs

1. Click the Start button. Select Settings and click the Control Panel icon. Double-click the Network icon.
Do not choose a TCP/IP entry whose name mentions DUN, PPPoE, VPN, or AOL. If the word TCP/IP appeaLinksis wireless computer setup for WRT54G model - a443500.jpgitself, select that line. Click the Properties button.
3. Click the IP Address tab. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.a443500.jpg
4. Now click the Gateway tab, and verify that the Installed Gateway field is blank. Click the OK button.
5. Click the OK button again. Windows may ask you for the original Windows installation disk or additional files.
Check for the files at c:\windows\options\cabs, or insert your Windows CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive and
check the correct file location, e.g., D:\win98, D:\win9x, etc. (if “D” is the letter of your CD-ROM drive).
6. Windows may ask you to restart your PC. Click the Yes button. If Windows does not ask you to restart, restart
your computer anyway.

Configuring Windows 2000 PCs

1. Click the Start button. Select Settings and click the Control Panel icon. Double-click the Network and Dialup
Connections icon.

I can't remember my password when I run the setup disc for my router. It's a lynksys WRT54G


Almost every consumer router has a 'reset' button that is inside a small hole on the back of the router. It is labelled 'reset' and typically needs to be held in with something like a paper clip gently inserted and held for about ten seconds with the power on. Sometimes there are variations on this theme that are in the manual.

Almost every consumer router is supported on he manufacturers web site. Most of them have online manuals that can be viewed on the site or downloaded and read on your computer in a PDF.

You go to the manufacturers web site and enter the model number into a search box. Poke around until you find the manual and browse to the factory rest section.

How do i make my unsecured network secure? using linksys WRT54G v8


Access the setup page of router by typing 192.168.1.1 in the address bar.

By default, leave the username blank and the password is admin.

Once on the setup page, go to Wireless. Under Basic Wireless settings, change the default SSID Linksys into any name. This will allow you to easily determine which is your wireless network.

Then go to Wireless Security and enable WEP. Type a passphase and click the generate button. Take note of the Network key. Remember that you will use this network key to all wireless computers.

On your wireless computer, view the available wireless networks or site survey. Select your SSID and enter the network key to connect.

I hope this helps!

Wireless router pass word


sakoz,

You have to reset your router. There is a small reset button on the back, which you have to hold in for at least 15 to 20 seconds if I remember correctly.

You should be able to then log back into it with the factory preset it came with.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!
