    Do you mean the IP address of your router, your name you type ( most people leave it admin) or your password? Or something else all together?

If you have just connected this router for the first time, the default is either :

Login:
Pass: admin

or

Login: admin
pass:

(pass or login will be blank)

if that doesn't work, press and hold the reset button with a paper clip on the back of the router for about 10 seconds
(warning: will reset router to factory defaults)

I can not locate my - f9ffdc3.jpg
Then use the login/pass option above

How to network connect and activate windows 2007 & MAC X


Set up user accounts

Users connecting to Windows Sharing must have user accounts on the Mac OS X computer that is sharing. There is no guest access. Any person who already has an account on the Mac OS X computer can use his existing account. You must log in to the Mac OS X computer with an administrator account to set this up. The steps differ for new and existing users.

For new users
  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
  2. From the View menu, choose Accounts.
  3. Click New User (10.2) or the "+" button (10.3 or later).
  4. Enter the Name and Short Name for the user who will log in from Windows.

    The user's short name is exactly how the user will enter their name when they log in to Windows Sharing. The short name is always lowercase.

    For users of Windows 98: If you log in to Windows 98 with a username, make sure it matches your Mac OS X account's short name. If you do not log in to Windows 98 with a username, you will need to create a new Windows 98 username that matches the account short name in Mac OS X. For more information on using Windows operating systems, please see Microsoft documentation or contact Microsoft for further assistance.
  5. Enter the user's password.
  6. 10.2 only: Click the checkbox for "Allow user to log in from Windows".
  7. 10.2 only: Click OK.
  8. Quit System Preferences.

If your Windows PC has is equipped with an Ethernet port, you can connect your PC and Macintosh using an Ethernet cable. By doing this, you are creating a small local network, consisting of just the two computers. Set up your Windows PC by turning on File Sharing. Refer to the instructions that came with your Windows PC if you're not sure how to do this.

To locate and connect to the Windows computer, you can use the sidebar in a Finder window. You need to know the workgroup name for the computer and the network name (called the "computer name") for the computer. To connect to the computer, you also need a user name and password and the name of the shared folder you want to access. If you don't have this information, contact the person who owns the computer or your network administrator.

If you cannot locate the Windows computer in the Network browser, you may be able to connect to it using the Connect To Server dialog in the Finder.

Make sure the Internet Connection Firewall is turned off, or if it's on make sure TCP port 445 is open to allow sharing connections.
To connect you Mac and Windows computers: step_1.gif

In the Finder, choose Go > "Connect to Server."
step_2.gif

Type the network address for the computer in the Server Address text box using one of these formats:

smb://DNSname/sharename smb://IPaddress/sharename
step_3.gif

Follow the onscreen instructions to type the workgroup name and a user name and password, and choose the shared folder you want to access.

I have a Linksys wireless router that was given to me. I have the IP address user name etc. Just not sure how to add it


best thing is to reset it and start anew with it:



Linksys reset

The easiest method of resetting your Linksys router's password is to reset your router back to the default factory settings. This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password "admin", in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to "admin" on some of the newer Linksys router models).

Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then:

I have a Linksys Wireless G broadband router device. How do I get the software?


Generally you don't need any, you can program the router simply by connecting a cable to port 1, then typing 192.168.1.1 in the address line of internet explorer, this will get you a log on prompt, leave username blank, password is: admin
From there you can configure the router.
If you still want the Software, you can download it here

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


All you have to do is log in with the browser you use at the linksys' settings page, locate the wireless section and at the security settings set up a password. A good idea it to do all this procedure while you are connected through an ethernet cable, so if something goes wrong and you have to try again, not to loose the connection with the router.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Code 10 error


okay some ppl have been having the same problem with that device cause the PID number isn't the same

First find out what VID and PID Numbers you have

Step 1 go to device manager locate the "Linksys wireless G usb network adapter" (the name in quotes may be different for you but find your card which should have a similar name)

Step 2 right click on it and go to properties

Step 3 go to details tab

Step 4 either write the VID and PID numbers down or leave that window open to come back to later

Then you find the INF file and open in notepad (the one you downloaded 1xxx for vista)

Lastly in the INF file you locate the section under

;--------------------------------------------------
; Added support for Belkin and Linksys
;--------------------------------------------------

And place your VID and PID numbers in the appropriate spot

;--------------------------------------------------
; Added support for Belkin and Linksys
;--------------------------------------------------

;Belkin F5D7051
%F5D7051_DeviceDesc% = RNDIS, USBVID_1799&PID_7051
%F5D7051_DeviceDesc% = RNDIS, USBVID_050D&PID_7051

then save the file, re install the driver and restart your PC...

Good luck, let me know

Im trying to connect my linksys-g to my dell computer. for some reason my computer can't find the connection. am i doing something wrong??


Your linksys router may have the SSID Broadcast disabled in setup. If the SSID Broadcast is disabled, wireless will not work.

You must log into the router to change the wireless settings. If you have the manual that came with the router, there should be a step by step for logging in. If not let me know.

I have a Comcast cable modem (Arriss) with a Linksys router attached to a Dell PC desktop in one room. In an other room is a Dell PC laptop with a Linksys Wireless -G Notebook adapter card inserted. I am...


you will have to access the router by the ip address.
(192.168.??.??)once you log in, user name blank and password admin. you will have to set up wireless security. there are several ways and each that is selected has a brief tutorial.

Sometimes, people who are gamers or use Ipods, leave the router unsecure but limit the wireless access by mac address or by ip address so only those wireless devices gain access.

Modem/router access


if you are talking about a linksys router, the default password is admin, there is an article to set up the security features here:

If it's an other brand, let me know or check your documentation, it always tells you what's the default password.
