Linksys Access point

Dear Expert,

I have been appointed a new network admin and I was asked to shut the whole network and system down due to some maintenance issues. When booting up all the devices router, switches, servers and access point I started testing to make sure everything is fine. But i come across one problem that my wireless access point which is wired in to a switch then to router is not assinging ip address to wireless users. We can detect the wireless network but it is not assigning any user with ip addresses. what would be the cause of the problem? I have never worked on access points before just a basic idea of its use.
i appreciate your help,
Thanks,

My LINKSYS as for password, it is locked


Press and hold the reset button of the Linksys router using a pointed object (like a paper clip or pen) for 30 seconds.


The reset button is located in the back of the Linksys router closest to an Ethernet port.

The button is recessed to protect you from accidentally resetting the modem.


Unplug the Linksys router while pressing the reset button.


Shut down your computer for one minute.


Plug the Linksys router back into the wall outlet.


Reboot your computer.


Open your web browser to access a website.

Type the below in the address bar if you want to reset your password:

http://192.168.1.1


A prompt from the site will request a user name and password.

The user name stays blank, or, in some models, is "admin".


Navigate to the security tab. Input your new password to protect unauthorized access to your router


hope this helps

My device keeps telling me that I have entered the wrong password for my network, when I have put in the right password multiple times.


If your Linksys admin password was not changed and your router is unsecured then someone could have changed your router's settings and network password.
To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of therouter 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 beconfigured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in allthe laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wirelesssettings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wirelessrouter.
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 PW (write it down and putit in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

I want to conect my iphone to my router but i dont have the password


If you are not administration the router than you have to ask your network admin for the password. Else open your browser and type 192.168.1.1 in the add bar and hit enter. System will ask you to type in the user name and password to access the web interface. So username and password are "admin" by default. Once you have entered the username and the password, you will see the web interface. Select "Wireless" option and then selece "Wireless Security" and then you will see the password.

Wireless router connection problems


Assuming "cannot connect to linksys router directly" means you cannot connect to a Wireless Lan managed by Linksys router,
1) try to connect new computer to LinkSys Router using a Lan cable, add new PC to your network.
2) recover protocol (WEP or WPA) and Key of WLAN (Passphrase or Key: TKIP or AES) either from other PC on same network either from your Router.
3) If you missed actual key you must connect to router and reset it to a new key to be eventually used for every connected device.
