My computer will not connect to my wndr3800 router but my computer will connect to my neighbors router


The first thing that you need to do is to reset the router. The reason why you need to reset the router because that will help you to fix the problem and to know the main problem/issue.

Steps

To perform a factory reset:
  1. On the back of your router, locate the Restore Factory Settings or Reset button.
  2. Using a paper clip or similar object, press and hold the Restore Factory Settings or Reset button for about seven seconds.
  3. Release the Restore Factory Settings or Reset button and wait for your router to reboot.
    After your router is finished with the factory reset, the Power light stops blinking and lights solid green.
    Note: The Power light on newer router models lights solid white.
    The factory default settings are restored.
  4. or you can visit youtube for the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUOcjDy02ts.

Note: Once you reset the router it will be back to factory default settings and you need to setup the internet connection settings on to your router


Once your done with the hard reset try connect your computer and if your computer will have the same issue connecting to the router it only means that the problem is on your computer / try to connect other device first before you reset the router

Reset password


The Motorola WR850G is a wireless router that attaches to a cable or DSL modem. The WR850G has two reset options.
Users can reset the router and retain the settings or reset it back to factory specifications to clear all settings.
Resetting the router can help with network issues such as dropped connections.
It can also resolve situations where the user has made changes to the router's settings and can no longer connect to the router.

Look at the back of the Motorola WR850G router and locate the reset button. It is a red button located to the left of the Ethernet ports.
Press the reset button on the Motorola WR850G router, and release it immediately to reset the router without changing the settings.
Press the button on the Motorola WR850G router and hold it for longer than five seconds to reset the router to factory specifications.
This setting resets the router's IP address and subnet mask along with the user ID and password you use to log in to the router.

My wireless router number is WRT120N but I dont remember my pin number how can I can a new one


You need to reset your router to factory setting.
The reset process will restore your router's factory default settings. All of the customized settings of the router will then be erased and the router's IP address will be reverted back to 192.168.1.1 if you have changed it.
To perform a hardware reset on your Linksys router, follow these steps:
Resetting the Router Using the Reset Button
IMPORTANT: Before proceeding with the reset, take note of your router's current settings. You might need to check with your Internet Service Provider to get settings.

Press and hold the Reset button at the back of the router for ten seconds. It will reset your router to factory settings.

I need to rest my router


YOU CAN RESET THE ROUTER TO FACTORY SETTINGS
You may reset router to factory setting from the reset button on the back side of the router. Use a paper pin to press the button for few seconds, the lights on the front would blink and the router would restart with factory setting. Please not that ALL SETTING WOULD BE LOST...AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO MAKE CONFIGURATIONS AND SETTING ALL OVER AGAIN



HOPE IT HELPS...Let me know if you need any further assistance

Right near the arial there is a reset button sitting behind the grill. Just look carefully and you'll find one of the grill hole is covered with a half white plastic. This is your reset button. Press it for ten seconds and router will start loading default setting.

Router password trouble


you may try resetting the router settings by pressing the reset button of the router at the back of the router, there is a hole at the back of the router, you need to have a paper clip or any ball point pen to press the reset button of the router. The catch in here is all the settings of the router will set back to factory default so if you will be resetting the router allo the settings you have configured and set on the router will be set back to the default settings so you might alos loose your Internet connection.

Default settings on the router's log in - nothing for username and password is admin. Username as in blank and don't put anything into it.

Use the reset button near where the AC adapter plugs in. Hold it in for at least ten seconds. This should set it back to factory, allowing you to set another password.
