Reset the router to factory defaults and start again.
There is a small hole on the reverse of most routers.
Push something thin in for 30 seconds or so and thats it.
If you dont have your default log in details or even know how to log onto the router(usually open your browser and type, but it can be other addresses) google the make and model and default log on, all the information will be there

Got new work laptop. Need WEP key to set up wireless so can work for home. Don't know how to find the key

Hi kaa1960,

To be able to get you Network key you will need to get in the Router settings page.

  • Firs you will need an Ethernet cable to connect you computer to the Router.
  • Once you have the cable and that the Router is connected to the Compute you will need to open IE or Firefox.
  • Now on your Browser on the Address bar you will need to type in then press Enter this should open up a windows asking for a user name and password.
  • For the User Name type in Admin and for the Password leave it Blank or it can be the other way around leave the User name Blank and the password admin.
  • this should open the Linksys setting page click the Wireless Tab or Link then the network mode or radio should be enabled to get wireless working on your Linksys Router.
  • Also third i where you can get the WEP key of your Router you may also change that if your wish to WEP can only be a 10 numerical password most Internet service providers use the phone numbers of the customer as the WEP key.
I hope that this helps.

Thank you for choosing FIxya,

I have a WRT54G router connected to the internet with DSL. The router is working for my wireless printer on my laptop but is not connecting to the internet on the two wireless laptops we have. I know that...

First you need to change the ip address on the router to a different ip address than the modem. I use on my is subnet mask Leave the modem at Go to your desktop and enter whatever ip address says at your gateway located in my network under lan adapters. Then change the lan ip address at my recommendation. Go to your wireless tab, under the wireless tab there is a check mark saing unmask the password, there you it well show your password. Take a laptop turn on the wireless on the laptop and when it finds your network enter that password that is unmask. When you turn on encryption you turn on a password, this will show your password. Make sure that you change the password to the one that you can remember, and uncheck the mask.

Wireless not working, asking for password??

Open your web browser and go to the URL This will take you to a web page with a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login required to login to your router. On older Linksys routers, the username is set to "blank" and the password is set to "admin" (without the quotes). On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin". Click on login. You have logged in to the Administrator account and are now able to access and change the Security WEP password. Remember to also add the new password to your wireless adaptor on your laptop when prompted. Good Luck...

2nd laptop will not connect to internet

I'm assuming that your 2nd laptop is wireless? Does your router have encryption? If it has, then you need to get the encryption key from one of the working computers. Access the linksys interface from one of the working computers. Usually this is done by going to (leave username blank, password is "admin"). Go to Wireless> Wireless Security. Is encryption selected? If yes, get encryption key #1 and use it on the non-working laptop to connect to the router. If encryption is not enabled, go to the steps below.

On the 2nd laptop, click on the wireless icon at the bottom right part of your screen. Look for the linksys router from one of the available wireless networks, click connect and enter in the encryption key when it asks for it (not case-sensitive. Usually it's 10 or 24 digits). If encryption is not enabled, it will not ask for the encryption keys when you hit connect. See what happens.

Can't get to IP address to fix 323 error on Linksys WRT54G2

If admin password is not working, it might have been changed to something else. Try to type any password that you can think of. If none works, you need to reset the router by pressing the reset button at the back of it for 30 seconds, then unplug the power for 30 seconds, plug it back in then try to access the page again, that should do it for admin as the password, no username.
