On the back side of most of these models is an All Reset. It is through a small hole. You will need something like a paper-clip end in order to access the switch.

With the power on, press the all reset switch and hold it for about 30 seconds.

Now you can go in with the factory default password and re-set up the unit from scratch. Consult the instruction manual for the default password.

Some instructions about the Lyncsys router:

Forgot my password linksys n600


Are you trying to connect to the wireless network?
Or you are trying to open router setup page?
Please explain in details.

If you forgot the wireless password then it can be found on router setup page. You need to open the router setup page and find the wireless network password.

Check this link to find wireless network password

If you are not sure about router password then you need to reset the router and reconfigure it.

Thanks

I need to reset or find my origional password. Please help. Thanks


If you have changed the default password, you need to reset the router to the factory settings to get in with the default user and password (user admin and password as password, or if that doesn't work try 1234 - these are the default password for NetGear routers). Note that you will lose the ISP settings and wireless settings when you reset the router.

Here's a video on how to reset the router to the factory default settings: http://kbserver.netgear.com/media/flash/training/Troubleshooting/NG_WGR614V9Router_TS_LostPassword.html

Where do I look on my "main" computer (hard wired


Hi dkusner,

Welcome to Fixya. If you need your Wep/Wpa Key (Passphrase) we can access the Wireless Settings Page of the router to obtain the information needed.

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key (Wep/Wpa Key) or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Network Key is case sensitive.

Don't forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya

It is telling me that the dlink is unsecured


This means that you have an open network. Your router has its default passwords and has not been changed at all. This will allow users/strangers to login to your router or connect to your network wirelessly.

To secure your router, just define a password for your route and for your wireless connection. Open a new browser, type on the address bar, 192.168.0.1. Username is admin and leave the password blank, then login. You will then enter to your router's control panel. Look for the Wireless settings and choose a setting to define a password for your wireless connection. Follow the instructions and click ok. After that process, your network will be secured.

Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using FixYa.

I want to change the name and the security password from default..but how? can anybody help me? thanks..


You can change the wireless name (SSID) and the wireless password by accessing the setup page. To access the setup page, do the following;

Open internet explorer or firefox and type in 192.168.0.1. It will ask for username and password. In the username field, type "Admin" , A in Admin should be a big letter. In the password field , don't type anything. Hit enter in yout keyboard and you will see the set-up page. In the set-up, look at the right side and click Wireless Settings and you will see Wireless Network Name (Also called the SSID) , and change that. Under Wireless Security Mode, change the wireless password or Passphrase.

Click Start-> RUN -> CMD . A Black windows will open. type ipconfig in that windows. Check the gateway address you are getting. Open Internet explorer and type the same gateway address in address bar on Internet Explorer. If asks for password type username and password - Admin. Or check according to your router manufacturer. Once open you will get Router page. Go to wireless settings and the security. Choose security type like WEP/WPA and then set password/Key for your network. Save settings in router page and then restart router. Search for available wireless network on your computer. try connecting to your network now it will ask you password. Don't share your network password with anyone and no one will be able to use it.

I wish to connect to my wireless network via my new dell laptop but the password i have entered is incorrect. the laptop is now connected to the internet/network but with limited accesss, when i try to...


Do you know now the password for your wireless??

If no then on the PC/laptop that it was orginally installed-click on start and run and type cmd which will open up command prompt.

Type in the black box -ipconfig...

Whatever the IP address is for your default gateway type it in Internet explorer which will open up your wireless router settings and you should be able to open up wireless security and find out what your password is..

When this is done disconnect from your wireless on the dell laptop and after disconnecting connect to your wireless again and enter your password and see if that fixes things.

Thanks

D-Link Wireless: validating identity


I believe this has to do with your automatic router/setup for wireless networks....but this is what I did to clear the same problem:

1) Right click on the tray icon that is searching for validation and select status.

2) A "Wireless Network Connection Status" box will open, click "Properties".

3) Your "Wireless Connection Properties" box will open showing the Wireless Networks available. Find the wireless network you are connected to and highlight it by clicking once, then click "Properties" just below.

4) Another box will then open with the properties for your network. Click on the "Authentication" tab.

5) Un-check the "Enable IEEE 802.1x Authentication...." checkbox.

You're good to go.... :)
