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

If that doesn't work , the only option is to reset and reconfigure the router .. hope this helps

It connects to the internet but wont pull up the webpage. Asks to recover it or close it and is so slow it may be timing out.

Internet explorer asking for the page to be recovered is usually a page issue, multiple things you can go to check this out.
1. Try another page, I would usually try (simple & fast)
2. Reset the browser (on IE, Tools > Internet options > advanced tab > reset) - should take care of a lot of issues
As for the speed of internet, that depends on the connection you have... if it's wireless, try wired (best way to ts connectivity issues)

My mini sylvania laptop says connected to internet but Explorer browser will not connect

I would suggest that you click on the tools and options in IE and return all the settings to default. Also, clear the browser cache.
Then check the network connection to make sure your firewall is not blocking IE.
Oh, yes--then go to IE and try to navigate to Google. Perhaps the URL in the address box is bad.

Have you checked your connections to ensure that everything is properly connected from your TV to your cable or dish box?
Have you tested your TV on multiple types of media. ie, DVD player, game system, live TV? Do you get the same problem with every type of media?
If your TV only has problems playing live TV it may be a problem with your service provider's equipment, if the error occurs with multiple media types then I suggest you contact Sony and inquire as to getting your TV replaced.

I bought this router 2 days ago. I pluged in the phone socket (with micro filter), and into mains,it worked perfectly on my daughters' (each daughter has a laptop - all work)laptops, and one of my desktop...

1) Make sure there is no low-pass filter from the phone line to the wall - it should be directly connected.

2) The laptop issue has nothing to do with the wireless router if it's actually connected. Try pinging the router. Open the command prompt. type ipconfig. Look at the laptop's IP address and the gateway. Try pinging the gateway (ie ping If the ping works, the connection is fine.

3) Can you open a browser window but not connect to a web page? This is due to a connectivity issue. If you can't even open a web page for whatever reason, its a problem with the laptop, not the connection. Hope this helps.

the excellent connection refers to the wireless signal and not the internet connection, so go to tools on your web browser, internet options, then delete all temp files, history and cookies, close your browser down and open it up again and see if it connects, if not keep clicking refresh.

Try different sites incase there is a fault on the site you are trying to browse.

you should only need to enter the WEP key and get youre friend to remove your mac address. You may also need to refresh the ip address of your wireless card, so go to control panel>network connections>right click to properties>TCP/IP line>properties and ensure 'obtain ip address automatically' is ticked, then reastart your pc. Or you can also click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns, so as to renew your dns and ip address.
