You need to put the correct credentials in Your Wireless connection settings on your Laptop. Example: SSID Name, Type of Connection, and Key. If you do not know your settings you may have to get a Network cable and connect directly to the Router and then log in by typing whatever IP address the Router defaults to. Usually Linksys is 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1. You would put that IP address in your browser like a URL. Then it will ask you to log in and then you will log in as whatever the defualt user name and password is. You can find more info at the Linksys website.

Try resetting the wireless router back to to factory defaults.
To reset the Linksys back to the default settings -
Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

First try replacing the LAN cable between the modem and router. Hard reboot bother devices (off 10 sec then back on). Connect to the modem with a LAN cable to make certain it is working correctly.
The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset

If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can set-up form scratch.

The router has now been reset. Follow the steps in Securing Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Router to secure your router.

  2. Enter your user ID And password when prompted. Hopefully this has been changed, but if it hasn’t, the default is no ID and “admin” as the password.
  3. At the top of the Web page, click “Administration” and then “Factory Defaults”.
  4. Beside “Restore Factory Defaults”, click “Yes”.
  5. Now click the “Save Settings” button at the bottom of the Web page.

A friend gave me his router to instal to my


You should do a factory reset using the reset button on the back using a paperclip.

Then you should insert the cd that your friend should also have given you (he didnt Hmm) if not you open an internet explorer page while hooked up (by wire) to the router and type into the address bar 192.168.1.1 on most netgear


The username is admin
and the password is 1234

From there you can use the setting your ISP gives you and also set wireless up.

Linksys wireless G router wrt54gs no connection


Did you try holding the reset button in for 30 seconds or more?

A couple times a year I have to reset my WRT54G back to the factory defaults. I have PC's and laptops connected via CAT5 and wireless. There are a couple of methods to resetting to factory default.

Reset Button Note:
Resetting the router to the factory defaults will delete any changes you have made to the router, including any security settings. This should be used as a last resort.

The first method involves simply pressing a button located on the back of the router.
To reset your router, use the following steps:
  1. Press the reset button for 30 seconds. The settings should now be returned to the factory default settings, meaning any changes you had made would be deleted.
  2. Open up your Web browser and enter “192.168.1.1′ in the address bar.
  3. For the login, leave a blank ID and enter “admin” as the password.
The router has now been reset. You'll need to go back in and set up any passwords or wireless security you had set up before.
Through the Web Administration Pages The second method involves logging into the Web administration pages of the router. Use the following steps to reset the router using this method:
  1. Open your Web browser and enter the IP address of your router. By default, the address is “192.168.1.1′.
  2. Enter your user ID And password when prompted. Hopefully this has been changed, but if it hasn’t, the default is no ID and “admin” as the password.
  3. At the top of the Web page, click “Administration” and then “Factory Defaults”.
  4. Beside “Restore Factory Defaults”, click “Yes”.
  5. Now click the “Save Settings” button at the bottom of the Web page.
The router should now be reset to the factory defaults. Again, you'll need to go back in and set up any passwords or wireless security you had set up before.

Can no longer pick up router signal


Does the wireless light still lit on the router? You can try changing the channel on the router (1 6 or 11) ans moving the antenna. If those things did not work upgrade the firmware of the router and reset to factory default. Do not forget to save the configuration file before you reset to factory default.
