Question about Linksys (WRT54GC) Router

1 Answer

Linkseys I have been on the internet looking up linseys problems. Everyone seems to have the same problem but yet linkseys does not want to admit that it is there equipment. I can not get a continous connection with my DSL through my linksys router. Yet if I hook my DSL up straight to one of my computers I have no problems, and I had no problems with my DSL for the 3 years I have had my service from using this router. I hate to say it but Linkseys equipment is just a piece of junk. The sad thing is I work from home and loose money when this happens to me. Irritated, frustrated and disqusted.

I have a Linksys router too so i feel your pain. If you haven't already, check the Linksys website for updated firmware for your router, this helped mine a lot!

Hope this helps.

How can I set up a new password

If you don't tell us what brand and what model, we can't help. But perhaps you have a manual. It should be very easy, when reading the manual. If you tell what brand and model, perhaps we can find the manual, but you still have to read it, after we place the pages here.

Went from wildblue internet service to dsl and need to know how reconfigure linksey router

Wildblue is DSL Internet service provider.
You can change the Internet connection settings of Linksys E3000 manually.
Or you can simply reset the router and reconfigure it by running the CD.

I have a linkseys Router and need to retrieve the passcode key to synchronize my ipod touch. How can I retrieve the key when I don't remember it.

You need to login with your I.E. browser and type:

You factory user: admin
Your factory pass: admin

Then try to check for the password.

Another way to do this is to do a 30/30/30 reset.

30 seconds hitting the reset bottom, (DO NOT RELEASE)
Unplug the power cord (Keep Holding the reset button and HOLD FOR 30 seconds)
Plug the Power Cord (Hold for 30 seconds)

Then you can try setting up the router again with the manual IP method or with the software provided by Linksys

Hope it helps.
God Bless You

Need the security code for my linkseys router

user name is admin.

if there is a pass required, it is admin

if you entered something and forgot it, do a hard reset. Find the hole in the bottom or the back and insert a paperclip. Gently depres and hold the button down for 3o or more seconds. Oh yea, unplug it first.

Can't connect to internet

When you recieved the microsoft update it might have changed the drivers of the adapter in your computer. If that is the case you need to reinstall the drivers of the adapter so that it can connect to your router again. You need to identify the brand and model of your adapter to do that.

Router connections

Is your speedstream router also your high speed modem? If so, you will have to go into the settings on the Linksys and change its IP Address subnet from to (or you can use a different number than 2) You will then need to reboot both routers (and possibly the computers) and try again. The easiest way to get into the Linksys settings is to connect it directly to the laptop via network cable, then type in in the web browser. No user name and admin is default password. (Make sure you change that, and the name of the wireless, and the security settings)
Good Luck!
