Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)
Uhh yeah, stupidest question ever, When you press the reset button on a router, a) how do you know when it's reset and b) Does it reset everything? or just the passes?
oh and c) Would I need to restart my computer?
Remember, there are no stupid questions, just stupid people who ask questions....only kidding.
The reset button will refresh connections if pressed quickly. The manual says to hold it for "a few seconds" to perform a complete reset. A complete reset will return it to factory defaults. It's IP address will be 192.168.1.1 and when you login username should be left blank and the password will be "admin" with no quotation marks. It wll also be set to DHCP and there will be no security.
As far as re-starting your computer, there is no reason to do this, but...if your computer expects the router's address to be something other than 192.168.1.1 or if it's set up to expect a static IP configuration you'll need to change some things on the computer.
I want you to know that I don't get paid for providing these suggestions. It's a strange hobby I know, but I like trying to help. If you found this information helpful I hope you'll rate it positively. If it does not help please ask more questions, I'd be happy to help more. Thanks, and good luck.
