Hello, On back of router there is a reset button. Use paperclip or equivalent and push in for 10-15 seconds. This will reset router to default. Cables are connected in this order. Phone line to DSL modem, to Router to Computer. Bring up browser and enter this address in address window: 192.168.1.1 this will bring up a username and password window. Enter admin for the username and leave password blank, hit enter and this will let you into the router settings. There will be different setting options like enable broadcast, WEP or WPA security. You can also change SSID and username and password. The DHCP box should be checked so it will assign IP address dynamically(Automatically). If there is anymore info please let me know. Hope this helps.

Tip

How do I set up the wireless network key on my linksys router?


Hi.

This tip applies to any Linksys wireless router.

First you need to access the router control panel , and check wireless settings.

Therouter control panel is accessed connecting a computer to the router.This is done using an Ethernet cable, and entering router IP address in Internet Explorer address bar.

Here the cable:

Here the procedure.

Connect router to computer using a network cable (LAN cable with RJ45 connector).

On computer open Internet explorer and type router IP in the address bar (where you use to typewww.this.that ).The IP address is indicated on router user manual. Ifit has not been changed, 192.168.1.1 is the default for LinkSys brand home broadband routers. Press enter after typing the IP.

Enter router user name and passord. On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer LinkSys routers, both the default usernameand the password are "admin". If that does not work, then defaultsettings had been changed. In that case you will need to reset therouter. See: Reset a LinkSys Router Password.

After entering right ID and password you will open the router control pane as HTML page in Internet Explorer.

In the router control panel choose the wireless setting tab to see or modify the password:

If you do not need to change wireless settings, then write down the encryption key, and set the same key on the laptop. Once the right key is set on the laptop, the connection will start automatically.

If more computersare connecting to this network, then do not reset or change thewireless settings. Simply write down the key on paper and setup thelaptop.

Remember that WAP encryption keys are case sensitive, Wep encryption keys are not.

The simplest encryption to choose is WEP.
WEP means wireless encryption key.

Open the router panel, go to wireless, and find key settings or set your own key.

If you have to set the key:

If you choose WEP 64, then the key that you need to set will be 10 characters key made by numbers and letters from A to F.

Close Internet Explorer to get out of the Linksys control panel.

Regards.

  • If you have forgotten your LinkSys router password, the easiest thing to do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.

    To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds.

    Once your router is hard reset, you will need to login and reconfigure it again.

    To reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router.
    LinkSys Default Password

    On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."

    Once you are past the login screen, you are able to reconfigure the LinkSys router.
    You want to go to the management tab and change the administrator password to something else to keep others from accessing your router.

    After changing the administrator password then you will need to enable WEP or WAP security so your nosy neighbors aren't tapping into your wireless network. I am picking up 4 networks with my pc antenna.


    Good luck

    Lost my pass word wireless router linksys by cisco


    Are you looking for the wireless password or the password of the router?
    If you want the password of the router, then try the default password of the router. If the default password doesn't work then you will need to reset the router and reconfigure the router.
    If you are looking for the wireless network password, then you will need to open the set up page of the router. Is there any computer connected to the router ? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router. Or any other computer which is able to go online using the router. Check the IP address on that computer. open the set up page of the router. Set up page of the router is the page where you will find all the settings of the router. under the wireless section you will find the wireless network password

    I have a linksys router and my IP address is 192.168.1.1 how can I locate my passowrd/WEP?


    The Linksys configuration URL is http://192.168.1.1 and if you cannot Login or remember the password then you can reset the router back to the factory defaults by -
    Power up the Linksys and pressing and holding the pinhole reset button at the back of the Linksys for 30 secs. The router will restart.
    Username Login = admin
    Password = admin
    You can now change the admin password and configure the wireless settings ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption etc.
    Don't forget to configure the wireless card in your computer with the router's wireless dettings so the computer can connect to the Linksys.
