You can reset the Linksys back to the factory defaults by powering up the Linksys then press and hold the pinhole reset button on the back of the router for 30 secs. You can then change the default password and setup the woreless settings again.
The default login = admin
The default password = admin

My wifi network goes down when my home phone rings


Lots of cordless phones will interfere with WIFI if the router is on certian channels. Try getting into your router and changing the channel to 11. Channel 6 is the default of many routers and it is real close to the same frequency of cordless devices.

If you need to know how to get into the router, just comment here and I will explain it.

How do i change the channel


In the 802.11b/g (2.4Ghz) standard there are 11 channels (US) to choose from, all but three are overlapping channels. Channels 1, 6, and 11 are the only non-overlapping channels. The channels can be changed to avoid interference from other wireless devices that run on the 2.4 Ghz frequency range (I.E. 2.4Ghz cordless phones, bluetooth, and X-10).

Step 1 Open your web browser and type the IP address of the router in the address bar. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. At the login, enter your username (admin) and password (default password is blank).

Step 2 Click on the Home tab at the top of the configuration page and then click the Wireless button on the left side.

Step 3 Select a channel from the drop-down menu. For best results, use channel 1, 6, or 11.

Step 4 Click Apply and then click Continue to save your settings.

In most cases, you only need to change the channel on the router. Most wireless adapters will "find" your wireless network by the SSID you assigned to the router, and then will automatically lock onto the channel of the router.

Router shows a strong signal but when i connect i get a message "no internet access"


1. Using a computer that is plugged into the router directly with a network cable, open a web browser.

2. In the "Address Bar" type http://192.168.1.1 and press Enter.

3. A box should appear asking for a "User Name" and a "Password". Leave the "User Name" field empty, and type your WRT54G router password into the "Password" field (the default "Password" is admin) and click the OK button or press [Enter].

4. The WRT54G "Setup" page should now appear. Click onto the Wireless page.

5. When the "Wireless" page loads, you should be on the Basic Wireless Settings sub-section.

6. Look for the "Wireless Channel" option. The default channel is set to "6 - 2.437GHz". Change it to either "1 - 2.412GHz", or "11 - 2.462GHz".

7. Click on the Save Settings button toward the bottom of the page to save changes. Click Continue when prompted to reload the page.

8. The channel of your WRT54G has now been changed. Restart your wireless computers so that they can automatically connect using the new channel.

9. If you still experiencing interference using channels 1, 6, or 11, try switching the router to the other channels as well (2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10) and find one that captures a good connection.

Hi. Please can you tell me how to stop others outside my household using my internet through my router by using a password. Please try and keep it simple for me as not great with computers. many...


Rob, this change is router brand and model relevant. In essence you need to log into the router and change the wireless settings. Go to the website for the brand and download instructions relevant to yoru specific unit. You want to invoke WEP wireless security, and assign yoru own password, often yoru 10 digit home or cell phone number, change system ID to something that you recognize, change AND RECORD the changes that you make. Also, change the broadcast channel to 11 or so, and have less issues with land line wireless phones.

There is much higher security that you could invoke, but typically just passwording the wireless access does it.

I have a belkin router, cordless phone interferce


cordless phones and wireless routers transmit on the same frequency. Move the router away from the cordless phone if it's near, if not try changing the channel on your belkin router

Now if your WIRELESS connection drops, when the phone rings it's usually because of this:

You have a cordless phone in your house that is using the same channel as your wireless router. Now routers are generally quite different so there's no one way to fix this. Just look up your make and model of modem on Google and find out how to change the channel on your modem. It's pretty straight forward and not very time consuming to fix.
Also one thing to note is that you shouldn't automatically jump to the highest channel that you can because your wireless card may not be able to go that high.

Everytime the phone rings my wireless connection goes away. I am also unable to secure this network. the model number is f5d8235 4


Your phone is using the same frequency as the wireless router (2.4GHz). It would be very difficult to prevent this unless you change:

1. Phone to corded system.
2. Change phone to cordless DECT (5.8GHz) system
3. Change network router from "G" series to "N" series.

I need to change the channel on my dlink 625 router..can u help?


I presume it's a cordless phone? If so, it's possible that it's interfering with the wireless signal. If that happens you will see the wireless connection being dropped - go into the wifi config utility and check how good the connection is. If this is the case, changing the channel may help. To do that,bring the router over to your PC and connect with an ethernet cable (just in case something goes wrong with the channel change and you lose the wireless signal.).

You need to find the "router homepage" in your web browser. If you don't know what it is, in windows click start -> run -> type "cmd" and press enter. In the command screen that pops up type "ipconfig" and press enter. It'll show you a few things. One should say "Default Gateway" followed by numbers.Write those numbers down (probably will be something like 192.168.1.254).

Open your web browser (IE, Firefox etc...) and enter the numbers. This will bring you to the router page. There should be an option like "Wireless" and under there you should see "change channel". It may be in the advanced option window.


IF your computer is NOT dropping the wireless signal when the phone rings, but the internet connection does drop - check the DSL signal light on your dlink. If it is flashing or not on, then the problem is with the DSL filters (small white connectors sent with your modem.). Always ensure any phone on the same line as the DSL is filtered or it will cause the internet connection to drop whenever the phone rings or is picked up.

I have buzzing on my phone when my Belkin n modem router is on . i have just brought new Uniden 5.8GHz phones i have 2 adsl line filters but stil the buzzing persists can you help


The frequencies of the phones and the modem are causing harmonics. You should have the ability to change channels on the phones, just turn the phone on and when you hear the buzzing start changing channels on the phone till it stops. You should have at least twenty five channels on the phones. Hope this helps.
