Question about Computers & Internet
Firstly, I would advice that you reset the router to the factory default settings. To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds. The reset button should be at the back of the router. its a red button and you will see reset written under it, push the red button and the router should be reset.
Once your router is hard reset, you will need to login and reconfigure it again.
To reconfigure your router, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a pop-up box which asks you to enter a user-name and password to Log-in to your router.
The default user-name is blank and the default password is "admin." Or both the default user-name and the default password are set to "admin." You can check your router manual to confirm the default password.
Once you have past the log-in screen, you are able to reconfigure the router. You can then to go to the management tab and change the administrator password to something else to keep others from accessing your router.
After changing the administrator password then you will need to enable WEP or WAP security so no one will tap into your network.
I hope this helps to solve your problem.
