Hi Friend,

We need to configure the wireless and router settings manually. Wireless settings configured with the CD wont last for too long.

Turn on the router and make sure every wire is connected to its actual place.
At the back of the router there is a small RED/BLACK button, push and hold that button for 30 seconds. Release the button and turn off the router for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds turn it on and wait till the power light is steady.

1.Type 192.168.1.1 in the web browser and hit enter
2.Enter the username and password(password is admin and leave the username blank)
3.Click MAC Address clone which is just below Setup alongwith basic setup
4.Select the Enabled button and click "Clone My PC's MAC.
5.Click Save settings
6.Click Wireless and fill the sections as mentioned
Slect the Manual Configuration button(after selecting you will get a different page)

Network Mode-Mixed
Network Name-As per your choice
Channel Width-20MHZ only
Standard Channel-11
SSID Broadcast-Enabled and click Save Settings.

7.Click Wireless Security and fill the sections as mentioned;
Security Mode-WEP
Encryption 40/64 bits 10Hex digits
Key1-Enter 10 digit or 10 letter password(example-your telephone number) and click Save Settings

8.Click Advanced Wireless Settings and fill the sections:
Beacon Interval-75
Fragmentation Threshold-2306
RTS Threshold-2307 and click Save settings.

Turn off the router for 30 seconds and turn it on. you will be able to access the internet through cable.

make sure you put the internet wire(coming from the modem)to the WAN/internet port of the router and your computer to any of the four LAN p orts.

i hope this will resolve the issue.

Regards
Chiranjeet

SOURCE: How to configure Huwaei MT880 with linksys WRT120N router?

Try these steps:

  1. Shut down the DSL/Cable modem
  1. Power up the router (no cables just yet).
  1. Power up the modem and wait for the appropriate lights (power, ethernet, and activity – something along these lines)
  1. Connect the modem and router with an ethernet cable (if there is a WAN port on the router make sure to put the cable in this port).
  1. Connect Port 1 on the router to the network card on the computer using an ethernet cable and check to see there is a light at the correct port.
  1. Open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. Input your routers id (usually an IP address or an URL) in the browsers address bar and press Enter. The address bar is where you would normally see, for example, http://www.google.ca If you don't know the IP address (such as 192.168.1.1) or the URL, try going to the manufacturers web site and downloading a manual.
  1. Now, a window will open asking for a user name and password (these are given to you in the instructions of the router). For example, Dlink sets up some of their routers as, username: admin and leave the password field blank then press OK.
  1. Now you are in the configuration page of your router (wireless most probably). Here you can set the encryption, new passwords etc… If your not comfortable doing these on your own most routers have a wizard that you can follow.
  1. If everything goes alright and the settings are successful you can now try the wireless connection. Go to a machine with a wireless card, right
  1. At the computer with the wireless connection, make sure the connection is on You might be trying to connect to the network by using either the application that came with the router or windows wireless configuration. Right click the icon in the system tray and “view available networks”. If it comes up in a window saying “Windows is not setup for wireless networks” then you must right click on the correct icon in the tray.
  2. Now, in the list of available networks, click on the name of your network Click on "connect" and it should ask for your security id (the encryption code). Put in the code (usually twice) and click connect or OK. It should now be "acquiring anip address" and in a few minutes it should be connected.

Trying to configure my Linksys WRT120N router, but when I click 'Save Settings' I get an error message (324). What's wrong?


I think you can try upgrading the firmware on your router,

Connect the computer to the router.
Download the latest firmware.
Open the setup page of the router and upgrade the firmware.
After upgrading the firmware, reset the router and reconfigure it manually.

See How to upgrade firmware on Linksys router.

Forgot my password for wrt120n


Looking for the Linksys WRT120N default password? You probably have little reason to access your router on a regular basis so don't feel too bad if you've forgotten the WRT120N default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the WRT120N default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the Linksys WRT120N, the default password is admin. As with most passwords, the WRT120N default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the WRT120N default password, you can also see the WRT120N default username and WRT120N default IP address in the table below.

Note: The Linksys WRT120N default password may be different for certain hardware orfirmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact WRT120N version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your Linksys WRT120N version number on the bottom of the router.

Be sure to change the default router password on your WRT120N to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new WRT120N password.
Help! The WRT120N Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular Cisco Linksys WRT120N, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the Linksys WRT120N default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the WRT120N will be the same as the default gateway IP address configured for your network connection.

See How To Find the Default Gateway IP Address for help.

In situations where the WRT120N default password or WRT120N default username has changed, you'll need to reset the Linksys WRT120N to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The WRT120N manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the WRT120N from Linksys Support.

Please let me know if any of the WRT120N default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the WRT120N default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.

I dont have the cd to my linksys and i never installed it to my comp i want to know if i can still set it up even without the cd


Yes you can setup the router without the CD. Just plug the router to your computer via a Ethernet cable. Then open a web browser and type in "192.168.1.1" (without the quotes) in the address bar.

Next it will ask you for a user and password by deflaut it is "admin" for the user name and for the password.

And that's it! From here you can configure the router to connect to the internet and setup the wireless access. Here is a sample:

Cant setup or connect to internet through router


Different ISPs require different configurations. If you have a Linksys router, such as the WRT54G, there are 2 ways on how you can configure it, either by running the Setup CD or by doing manual configuration. This particular router has its own web utility and you can access it by typing its IP addres on your web browser, ex. http://192.168.1.1. By default, it doesn’t have any username and its password is admin.

Once you’re inside the setup page, you can configure now the router for DHCP, PPPoE or STATIC IP settings. For DSL customers using a PPPoE account, some modem needs to be configured into BRIDGE MODE first and then the router will be set to PPPoE with the correct username and password (given by ISP). If your a DHCP account, modem doesn’t require any configuration. It will work with its default setting and the router would be set to DHCP. Once done, powercycle your devices to establish internet connection.
