Had problems changing router settings/setting up security info

Had problems accessing internet with router. started at cable modem and router power. unplugged and waited and plugged back in. no internet. tried to hardwire direct to router, no internet. checked all connections, everything fine. performed a reset by holding button for 30 seconds, router is now working and getting internet access both hardwired and wirelessly. The problem is that I now cannot make any changes to the router (ie. change network name, set security password, or even time zone with an error message saying "server unexpectedly dropped connection" how can I remedy this?

To check if the modem is configured to your ISP settings and the modem connects to the Internet, connect the modem with a LAN cable to your laptop and check if you can get into the Internet. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router's wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router. To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: - 1, Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). The encryption key can be easily set up using a passphrase (it can be an alpha numeric phrase or words). 7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.

No more internet thru router after new modem installed


Router setup
Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the Comcast cd installed. then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line.

Did Comcast reset you wireless router settings? If so, you may need to set up your SSID and security settings.


Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
To change the router’s SSID or the wireless network’s name, click here.
To change the router’s channel, click here.
To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Lost CD


To get my connection to work, I had to configure my Netopia DSL modem for Bridged Mode and let my router take care of the routing and address assignment. I would also try to get a working connection before configuring security. You can always do that later. You have the order of powering up you equipment correct. Read this link. It works for me.

Dynex Router problem


You should first verify you have a internet connection to your computer directly from modem. If you do then turn your computer off unplug modem from power supply and remove ethernet connection. Then with cable only attached to modem plug in power supply. Allow enough time for modem to boot completely up. Then plug ethernet back into modem and the other end into router. Then power up router. Allow adequate time to router to sync up. If you never set up your router initially with all security features and access codes for wireless you may need to run set up disk. If this was all previously done then power up computer go to CONNECT TO option on START menu. Your wireless network should be listed with the name you gave it. Select your network. If it is a secured network it will ask for access codes. Enter the codes and you should be able to access internet. If not you may need to run set up disk again or contact manufacturer of router.Good luck

N1 wireless router


Hi Doosey,

Shut down the modem, and the router. Make sure your Ethernet cable goes from your modem to the WAN port on the Belkin. Start up your modem, and wait 2 min. That is important. Then start up the router. Wait 3 more min, then fire up your computer.
Remember to use the CD, or access your router using Internet Exporer to change the password. and set you security setting to protect yoursefl.
Good luck,
