Either unplug it for 15 seconds and plug back in, or find the pin sized hole on the back and put a pin or needle inside and press the button for 5 seconds and release.

Just stopped (using Router Table) plugged it directly to power source still does not work? is there a reset?

normally yes, spring loaded button on back, or master reset is a small hole you can press internal button with dull pin or small screw driver.
To do this, press and hold the Reset button for 10 seconds. NOTE: Resetting your router to its default factory settings will also reset your router's password. The router's default password is "admin" as for the username, just leave the field blank.

I'm trying to connect my wireless but i forgot the master key to enable my connection

If you forgot the Key to your wireless connection your two options are to log into your router and see how you have it set up, or do a master reset on the router and start over with it. For most routers you can do this by holding the reset botton (Usually found on the back of the router) for 30 seconds while the router is plugged in, then without letting go of the reset botton unplug the router for 30 seconds, then while you are still holding the reset botton plug the router back and hold for another 30 seconds.

As instructed i master reset my wireless router, due to the fact that i forgot my password. My internet connection wont work at all, now that i have "master reset" my linksys Wrt100 router.

When you do a Master Reset on a wireless router it sets the hardware back to factory settings.

To get this working again you will need to run the setup wizard CD to reconfigure the device.

You can find all the setup programs and documentation on how to configure at the following location:

Good luck.

How can i reset my Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Router it cannot connect for an internet connection

  • Locate the small master-reset pinhole on the back of the router. The pinhole is located directly to the right of the Ethernet port labeled "connection to modem."

    Soft-reset the router by placing a sharp object, like a push pin, into the router hole. Push inward and immediately release the button. The lights on the router will flash and then the "Power/Ready" light will start to blink. When the light turns solid, the router is reset and ready to use. This reset does not restore the router to factory settings. It refreshes the software and is similar to rebooting a computer. If you want to restore the router to the factory settings, skip this step and move to step four.
