Yes, sounds like you have a buggy router. I have had one of those too, just not that brand. Go to http://www.trendnet.com/asp/download_manager/list_subcategory.asp?SUBTYPE_ID=1043 and see if this upgraded firmware will fix your problem (read the notes with it, like they say) and if not, either get with your ISP (if they supplied it) or someone else.
So long as your power is good, you should NOT have to reset a router periodically. If you have an intermittent problem, you should replace it.
Do you have your router plugged in to a UPS? If not, you should do that.

Cannot connect to the interent with Shaw Cable. Problem just occured today. When I hook my internet directly to my computer it works fine. Shaw tells me this is a global problem with alot of their...


I had the same problem and got the same answer from Shaw when I called. Fortunately my D-Link 655 modem was less than a year old so I called D-Link support. They said Shaw made a change to their system yesterday which caused the problem.

The solution they provided was to log into the modem then go into setup, manual setup. Make sure the connection is Dynamic IP (DHCP), then at the bottom press the button Clone your PC's MAC address, then save the settings. I then had to unplug the power from my cable modem and router and wait 1 minute. Plugged in the cable modem first, once all the lights have gone through the cycle plug in the router. This fixed my problem so far.

Good Luck...

Tip

Wireless Network Reset and Setup - Linksys


If you are unable to connect your laptop wireless to your Linksys wireless access point/router, the easiest and fastest way to get going is to reset your router to the factory defaults. This will make your router work like the day you bought it.

There are 2 steps involved Reset your router, Setup/Secure a new router

Reset your router:

  • Unplug your DSL/Cable modem from power (not your access point/router) Leave this unplugged for now


Next
  • On the rear of your Linksys router you will find a small RESET button
  • With the power still on the router, Press and hold (with a pin/pen tip) the RESET button for 30 seconds.
  • Release the RESET button a wait 15 seconds for the router to reboot


almost done....
  • Unplug your Linksys router from power
  • Plug your DSL/Cable modem back in to power
  • Wait 1 minute for the modem to boot up
  • Be sure the ethernet (cat5) cable from your modem is securely plugged into the WAN port on the back of your Linksys router. This is usually labeled WAN or Internet above the jack
  • Plug your Linksys router back into power.


You will now be able to connect to the internet with your wireless device. I would advise that you follow the next steps in securing your wireless network.


Setup/Secure a new router

Log into your router
  • Type 192.168.1.1 into your web browser and hit enter
  • In the login fields (case sensitive):
  • Username: leave_this_field_blank
  • Password: admin
  • Click OK


Once in the web interface for your router
  • Click Wireless tab - Basic Wireless Settings
  • Find the Wireless Network Name (SSID) field
  • change this to your new network name (this is the name you will see when you connect through your wireless device)
  • Find the Wireless Channel field
  • Change this from 6 (default) to 1 or 11

  • Click on Wireless Security
  • Find the Security Mode field
  • Choose WPA2 - Personal
  • WPA Algorithm choose AES
  • WPA Shared Key type in your new password you will use to connect to your network

Click Save Changes and your router will now reboot. You will now need to enter in that same password (WPA Shared Key) when you first connect with your laptop to your wireless network

Our linksys wireless g router just stopped working.


In order to try to recover your router, the first thing to do is to try to reset the router to factory defaults. To do this: 1) Power down all computers, the router, and the modem, and unplug them from the wall. 2) Disconnect all wires from the router. 3) Power up the router and allow it to fully boot (1-2 minutes). 4) Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds, then release it, then let the router reset and reboot (2-3 minutes). 5) Power down the router. 6) Connect one computer by wire to port 1 on the router (NOT to the internet port). 7) Power up the router and allow it to fully boot (1-2 minutes). 8) Power up the computer (if the computer has a wireless card, make sure it is off). 9) Try to ping the router. To do this, click the "Start" button > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. A black DOS box will appear. Enter the following: "ping 192.168.1.1" (no quotes), and hit the Enter key. You will see 3 or 4 lines that start either with "Reply from ... " or "Request timed out." If you see "Reply from ...", your computer has found your router. 10) Open your browser and point it to 192.168.1.1. This will take you to your router's login page. Leave the user name blank, then in the password field, enter "admin" (with no quotes). This will take you to your router setup page. Note the version number of your firmware (usually listed near upper right corner of screen). Exit your browser. If you get this far without problems, try the setup disk, and see if you can get your router set up and working. When you get to the password prompt in setup, be sure to leave the user name blank.If this does not fix your problem, then report back with your results, including any error messages, and the firmware version number if you have it. Also report back the status of your router lights.

Had a power cut and now router has stopped working


if the light is flashing Red then your router has "forgotten" its password for your service provider. if however the light next to it is flashing ( looks lik twisted wires ) then your router has not syncronised with the exchange.

If it has lost its password you will nedd to log on to the router through internet explorer by typing 192.168.0.1 this will get you to the authentication page. the username will be "admin" and the password "password" once in there click on "setup" and then re-enter the username and password supplied to you by your internet provider and all should be well.

If the twisted wire light is flashing then you will need to wait until the i light starts flashing

I have belkin g plus router and dont want people steal my interent usage how do i stop others from usen my interent also what do i do if i only want others in my house to use our interent


To make sure your interenet is secure on a wireless router, consult your owners manual for the device (you can also download the PDF from belkin.com support page if you need.)

You will need to log into the router setup from a connected computer, and in the setup either set a WEP or WPA key. Once set you simply go to your wirless and choose connect to the router and enter the key, make sure you check the box to save the key and then you should be good.

BE SURE to write the key down somewhere for your reference so you don't have to keep changing it if something gets changed on one of the computers.

I'm trying to access my wireless Linksys router to secure it.


First inplug power from router via the jack(not the wall outlet) and then unplug the cable going to the modem, take the blue ethernet cable that comes with router and plug into internet port now you can secure your router without worrying about internet threats. Open your web browser , in the url bar type 192.168.1.1 hit enter and a window should open, asking for username/password if you have not set one the default is admin in the username field then hit enter. If you have already password connected it and forgot password you need to unplug everything from router and then hold down reset button on back. There will be a screen that will walk you through all aspects of setup, security, firewall, wirless setup , wireless security, and it will give you a break down of all options on the right side of each window. Important to setup a passkey!!! Otherwise people can get into your network easy. once setup plug blue cable into ethernet port and modem cable into internet port. plug in power and you should be set. The cd that came with router should be first used. Do not broadcast wireless ssid and use wireless pin to connect computer.

I lost the instructions on how to install a Linksys wireless router. I would like to down load these instructions.


cable setup

This guide is recommended for Cable Internet Service in the USA like Charter, Cox, Comcast, Cable Vision, etc.
  1. First you need to connect the device together. You need to connect your cable modem to the internet port on the back of the router, and the computer should go to one of the 4-port on the router labeled Ethernet (1, 2, 3, 4).
  2. Then turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to stabilize before powering on the Linksys router. Lights that you should have on the router are Power (solid green), Wireless/WLAN (Green sometimes flashing), One of the no. lights where the computer is plugged in (flashing), And the internet light (flashing).
After doing this step there are times that this will already get you online. If the internet will not work, you continue following the steps 3.

3. If the internet is still not working; we will need to adjust a setting on the router setup page. To access the setup page of the router you need to open your internet explorer or Firefox on the computer that is hardwired directly to the router. In the address bar of your browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox) type http://192.168.1.1/ and hit enter or click Go. It will ask you for a username and password. Just type "admin" for the password field and there is no username. If you have ran the setup CD prior to this, then use the password that you have set when were running the setup CD.
4. Once you are in the setup page of your router make sure that the Internet Connection Type is set to Automatic Configuration DHCP, then click the save the settings button at the bottom of the page. After saving the settings, click the sub tab at the very top of the page that says MAC Address Clone. Set it to enable and click the button that will say Clone or Clone your PC's MAC and save the settings again.

5. After doing step 4, do a power cycle. Power cycle is done by turning of the router, modem and computer. Leave them off for a minute, tuned them back on in this order. Modem first wait for the lights to stabilize, then the router wait until the power light become solid. Then turn on the computer. This will get you online through the router.
