You can hit the reset button located at the back of the unit. I would hold in on it for about minute and release.

They keep saying i am keying in the wrong wireless password. Is this the router password or am i suppose to find another one. please help


My Linksys wireless router uses a different password to setup a wireless connection with the SSID (wireless account name) than the password for logging into the router for administrative purposes.

So I suspect you need a different password. However, without knowing which make/model of router you have, I can't help you identify where to find the information for your wireless setup.

Please add a comment with your router information for additional assistance.

I hope this helps.

I was tryng to create a password for my linksys wireless now i have no internet access


If you successfully added a Wireless password you will then need to re-setup the wireless connection with the security settings you entered in the router.

if you do not have these settings then you will need to an ethernet cable to make the connection and view the router settings.

I cannot get Internet through my wireless today. All was fine yesterday. Troubleshooted with the internet provider. Took the wireless out of the mix and I could connect.


you can try a factory reset on your router by holding in the rest button on the back for 30 seconds. This will set it back to default with no security ect. You will then need to configure your computer to connect with no wep key. At this point if you still can not connect it would be time to call linksys. Also dont forget to reset your modem every time you plug it into a new device!

Cannot connect to wireless Linksys WRT300N router. Power off/on, but only the internet indicator ON, wireless indicator OFF... Router is diagnosed as hardware failure, just want to see if there is...


Hi Friend,

You need to try hard reset of your router. Please follow the steps:

1. Power on the router.
2. Push and hold the reset button for 10 seconds (watch whether the power light blinks or not)
3. Turn off the router for 10 seconds and switch it on.
4.Once the power light is steady then perform the steps 1-3 for 2 more times.
5.If the wireless light still shows off, then kindly get in touch with the Linksys technical support centre.

If the wireless light turns to be good and steady then follow the steps to configure the wireless settings:

* Type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of the web browser and hit enter.
* Type admin as password and leave the username blank
* Click Wireless and fill the sections as mntioned:
Network Mode: Mixed
Netwrok name: As per your choice
Radio Band: Wide-40mhz
Wide Channel- 6
Standard Channel:1-2.412GHZ
SSID Broadcast: Enabled and click save settings.
* Click Wireless Security and fill the sections as mentioned:
Security Mode: WPA Personal
Encryption: TKIP
Pre-shared key: Any ten digit number and click save settings.

turn the router off for 30 seconds and swithc it on. use the pre-shared key to connect your wireless devices.

I hope this will resolve the issue.

Regards
Chiranjeet

I am trying to connect a new kindle to my existing wi fi (cisco linksys) but cannot remember the password I entered for my linksys.


I think you meant the access key password for your wireless security and not the password for the router itself (2 separate passwords).
I'll give you both solutions starting with the wireless key password.
1. access the router configuration page by typing http://192.168.1.1 in your browsr. 2. This should pop up a log in window asking for user name & password 3. The default settings for a linksys router say to leave the username blank and type admin for the password. 4. once you're in look for the Wireless tab and click it then click on wireless security 5. your password will be listed there in the shared key box.
Now if its your router access password that you need you'll need to reset the router if you can't remember it and then follow the steps above to create a wireless security password. Here's how you reset the router. Remember that all custom settings you may have set will be erased and the router will go back to original factory configuration settings
1. On the back of the router you'll find a small hole or indentation and it may or may not have the word reset printed by it. 2. Find a paper clip or something of the same size and use it to press the reset button for about 2-3 seconds 3. Router will be reset
Good luck

I CAN NOT CONNECT TO THE INTERNET ..using Linksy wireless remote


the wireless card installed to your computer is working..as you said you can view all wireless networks...your computer is good too...the only issue is you cant connect to the wireless router...

turn off and unplug the power cable of the Modem
turn off and unplug the power cable the router

wait for 30 seconds
plug in and turn on the modem, wait for all the light turn to solid green ( no blinking lights )

then power on the router

if you saw the wireless icon light turn solid...

go to your computer...right click the wireless icon...select repair

if this doesnt work....reset your internet router by press and hold the reset button behind the router near the power plug (atleast 15 sec)

then connect your PC..the wireless network dont have the WEP key anymore because of the reset..you can reconfigure and put back the WEP key when you get connected.

Wireless router connection problems


Assuming "cannot connect to linksys router directly" means you cannot connect to a Wireless Lan managed by Linksys router,
1) try to connect new computer to LinkSys Router using a Lan cable, add new PC to your network.
2) recover protocol (WEP or WPA) and Key of WLAN (Passphrase or Key: TKIP or AES) either from other PC on same network either from your Router.
3) If you missed actual key you must connect to router and reset it to a new key to be eventually used for every connected device.
