Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Password I purchased a router so my 3 foreign college students could use my comcast internet connection. I followed all the procedures and set up the router....logged in user name and password (for router)...They keep getting a "not accurate password" when they log in the password I have created. Am I missing a step?...Is the router password the same as the password used to access my wireless router?...Is there something else I need to do?

    No, the first password is only the router configuration password.

    If you post the make / model of the router, I can help you further.

I hope your internet is working fine when you are connected directly through modem . As of my views you need to configure your newly purchased router first. Connect your router , see to that all the connection are appropriate . Your modem enthernet cable should be connected to your router and your router to desktop in this is the ideal connection .

now follow these steps .

1. click on LAN . Select TCP/IP config
2 . Click On properties .
3 . check the box " automatically recieve settings . Click on Ok and close it .
4 . Now to go to ur router page open a web browser . in address column type your gate way . I. E. for most of routers it is 192.168.1.1
and press enter
5 . it will prompt you to password , Your USER NAME AND PASSWORD is ADMIN .
6. in basic setup . Select AUTOMATIC DHCP ,
7. change your IP address to 192.168.1.10
8. save the settings and reboot .
9 . restart your system .

Reconfigure Linkys G Wireless Router


  1. Make sure that your modem is connected to the WAN port of the router and your computer is connected to one of the 4 ports of the router.
  2. Check the IP address that your computer obtained from the router. To do that, go to control panel>network connections.
  3. Right click on Local Area Connections and click status. Then click support and look for IP address.
  4. The IP address of the computer should be in 192.168.1.x.
  5. Then, access the router's setup page by launching Internet explorer and typing 192.168.1.1.
  6. It will then ask for a username and password. By default there is NO username and the password is admin.
  7. Once you're in setup page, set Internet connection type to PPPoE.
  8. You should have the username and password from ATnT.
  9. Save the settings afterwards and check your Internet connectivity through the router.
Hope this helps!
