Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

3 Answers

I am re-installing my software because I can't remember my password and need it for another computer and my new printer. When I get to the step that finds the router, it can't find it. I have it plugged in correctly because I have been using it for a couple of years and have had no problem.

I agree. The reset button is at the back of the router close to the Internet port. Whilst the router is plugged in to the pc and powered on, simply press and hold the Reset button until the led lights on the front panel go out. Then, release the Reset button.

Afterwards, to access the router, type in 192.168.1.1 on any browser and change the settings such as the password, SSID, Wireless Security Key, etc.

I love my Linksys WRT54G and it's served me for more than 5 years. Very dependable and consistent. Alas, I had to replace it with a TP-LINK Wireless N Gigabit Router TL-WR1043ND. I'm keeping the Linksys though. Memorieeeees.

Why not just reset the router to factory defaults.
I have used this router and did not need an installation disc.
I just plugged it in, opened my browser, logged onto the router, set my wireless password (WPA2).
Type http://192.168.1.1/ in the adress bar and the username you leave blank, and password is admin which is the default username and password.

When you in the setup page click the tab saying "wireless" then security, you can now change your SSID (the name you see when you search for your router)
your security type (WGA2)
And your password

Are you trying to set up the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Computer Maintenance


You may not realize it, but your computer and your car have something in common: they both need regular maintenance. No, you don't need to change your computer's oil. But you should be updating your software, keeping your antivirus subscription up to date, and checking for spyware. Read on to learn what you can do to help improve your computer's security.

Getting started

Here are some basics maintenance tasks you can do today to start improving your computer's security. Be sure you make these part of your ongoing maintenance as well.

* Sign up for software update e-mail notices. Many software companies will send you e-mail whenever a software update is available. This is particularly important for your operating system, your antivirus program, and your firewall.

* Register your software. If you still have send them in. And be sure to register new software in the future. This is another way for the software manufacturer to alert you when new updates are available.

* Install software updates immediately. When you get an update notice, download the update immediately and install it. (Remember, downloading and installing are two separate tasks.)

An ounce of prevention

A few simple steps will help you keep your files safe and clean.

* Step 1: Update your software
* Step 2: Backup your files
* Step 3: Use antivirus software and keep it updated
* Step 4: Change your passwords

Developing ongoing maintenance practices

Now that you've done some ground work,, it's time to start moving into longer term maintenance tasks. These are all tasks that you should do today (or as soon as possible) to get started. But for best results, make these a part of a regular maintenance schedule. We recommend setting aside time each week to help your computer secure.

* Back up your files. Backing up your files simply means creating a copy of your computer files that you can use in the even the originals are lost. (Accidents can happen.) To learn more read our tips for backing up information.

* Scan your files with up to date antivirus software. Use your antivirus scan tool viruses and worms. Also, check your antivirus program's user manual to see if you can schedule an automatic scan of your computer. To learn more, read our tips for reducing your virus risk.

* Change your passwords. Using the same password increases the odds that someone else will discover it. Change all of your passwords regularly (we recommend monthly) to reduce your risk. Also, choose your passwords carefully. To learn more, read our tips for creating stronger passwords.

Making a schedule

One of the best ways to help protect your computer is to perform maintenance regularly. To help you keep track, we suggest making a regular "appointment" with your computer. Treat it like you would any other appointment. Record it in your datebook or online calendar, and if you cannot make it, reschedule. Remember, you are not only helping to improve your computer, you are also helping to protect your persoanl information.

Good luck!

Il.comI have an HP Deskjet 6940, which I have connected to the computer, but its saying I need software to install it. Can you help?


Hi,

First step is to know the version ( system type ) of your PC.

Click on START button
Right click on Computer and left Click on Properties
From the New Window Check for System Type : It will be mentioned as 32 bit operating system or 64 bit operating system. ( Remember this )

I assume you have not installed the complete software for your Printer.
Click on the link below to download the drivers for Vista O/s for the printer.
When the page is open - Choose the Operating system and click on Next Button.

Click on Drivers and Product installation option and click on HP Full Feature Software and Drivers
Click on Download button on top and click SAVE ( Remember the location you save the file )
You need to run the downloaded software.
Disconnect the USB Cable from printer before you start the installation as the screen will prompt you when you connect it.

Download Drivers

Hope this is helpful and will help you in installing the printer software and able to scan as well.

Regards,
Ron

How to install the network software please give the the software


If you have a network of computers, from time to time you will need to perform software upgrades and install new software onto the computers. Depending upon the size of your network, this can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. Before installing software on a network, be sure to read the software licensing agreement. Most software programs only permit you to install the software on one computer per license.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderate Instructions
  1. Step 1 Power on each computer within the network on which you would like to install the software.
  2. Step 2 Log on to each computer with the administrator username and password. If the network administrator has not established a username and password for the network, you will not be prompted for a username and password.
  3. Step 3 Check each computer to ensure that it meets the minimum system requirements for the software download (for example, the correct operating system, sufficient disk spacemag-glass_10x10.gif and correct processor).
  4. Step 4 Insert the software CD into the CD ROM drive of each computer on which you want to install the software. Enter the software license number or product key code. This will be located in your software package.
  5. Step 5 Run the software installation wizard. Some software programs may require configuration after it has been installed.
  6. Step 6 Remove the software CD from the computer after the installation is complete. Restart the computer.

I need to install my printer into my computer..?


Hi nikkita3

Try this method. Follow the link.
http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00605.htm

or you can try it this way.

How to install your printer software on your computer

So you have just bought a new printer and you're raring to go and print just about anything you can find in your computer. Before you amass all available pieces of paper, though, you should first install the printer software. This way, the printing process becomes smooth and easy. The good news is, most software these days will facilitate the installation on its own with just a few clicks from your end.
Here are a few quick steps in order to install your printer software on your computer:
Step 1: Read the installation manual
Before anything else, read the installation manual carefully. This is important. Take note of special instructions like if you need to uninstall a previous version of the software already in your computer or if you need to tweak some settings like turn your virus scanner off.
Step 2: Insert disk
Insert the disk or any media where the printer software is stored to the corresponding drive. You can hear faint whirring and buzzing sounds - this means the drive is reading the disk. Usually, a new window will pop up, displaying all the files read in the disk. Do you see a "readme.txt" or "readme.doc" file? Open that and read the contents of the file. There are usually important pieces of data or reminders in that file pertaining to your printer software. When you're done, look for a certain file that has a icon different from others and a ".exe" extension. This is the executable file. Click on it.
On the other hand, in case the window doesn't pop up, go to My Computer, click on the appropriate drive where your printer software CD is and look for the ".exe" file. Run that file by clicking on it.
Step 3: Installation proper
Once the executable file is run, the installation process will automatically begin. Get the box which came with your printer software CD and take note of the registration code or key. You might need to enter this data later during the installation process or when you need to reinstall the software all over again!
In the course of installation, you will be asked as to which folder you want to save all information related to the printer software, what type of installation (typical, custom or minimum) and which icon to use. It is highly suggested that you stick with defaults. Tweak the settings later based on your preference. What's important is that you install the software properly first.
Step 4: Reboot
More often than not, before you can fully use a newly installed program, you need to reboot your computer first. After rebooting, run your printer software and check if everything's working as they should.
So there. These are the steps that you need to do in order for you to install printer software on your computer. Just remember to do the necessary precautions like scan the software every now and then to make sure that things don't go haywire. Happy printing!
