Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a username and password. By default, the username is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.
b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.
d. Enter your ISP's username (username@ISPdomain) and password. Then, click on Apply.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it is 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

If you have wireless computers, you can connect them wireless to the router. Kindly follow the instructions below:

6. Connect wireless computer to the router.

If you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 1, please follow the steps below:

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer.

Connect an Ethernet cable from the network port on your computer to one of the LAN ports on your router.

Start Internet Explorer.
Access the web-server inside the router: http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1
and set a new password for your wireless network.

Cant remember router password want to reset it and establish a new secure wap


You first need to go online to the routers setup and reset the password. You can plug the router into your computer's ethernet wired connection and then type the ip address of the router. Usually it is: 192.168.2.1 by default. Find the wireless WEP settings and reset password. Make sure your computer's wireless adaptor has the same WEP password. Good Luck

Can't setup to virgin braodband


You mean ascii and hexadecimal.
  • Hard wire your router to your PC with an ethernet cable
  • Open your web browser, go to website http://192.168.0.1
  • Input username/password both are "admin" (without the quotes)
  • choose "wireless settings" (third tab from left)
  • go to "security" (fourth tab from left)
  • Choose WEP (if the first box on this page already says WEP you may skip this step)
  • choose 64-bit
  • type random 10 digit code into key 1 (eg. 38-38-2D-E3-B0)
  • Save settings (bottom of page)
  • write code down somewhere or make it easy to remember
  • disconnect your ethernet cable from router, try to connect to wireless network, enter code (from above) and it will connect.
