Do a hard reset, which will flash back your all settings and connect back using default pass and login - to do a hard reset just check a small button normally on behind of your router, press that for 30 sec or more and reset the power, thats it and you can connect you router page with default pass and login

The previous answer is what you should follow, but if you are using a Linksys router the login and password are each: admin

Try using that for both the login and password after resetting.

here is a good list of logins and passwords depending on which router brand and model you have:

You have to reset it to the original factory settings. Refer your owner's manual on how to reset. Usually there is a small pinhole switch which you need to keep pressed for about 5 seconds.

You will lose all settings and will have to configure your router again.

How to Connect a Laptop to a Wireless Router Using a Windows Operating System
Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection , which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.
Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.
Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.
Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.
Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.
Click on "Properties."
Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.
Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.
Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."
Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.
Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.

Unable to reset a Belkin Wireless N F5D8236-4v1 back to default


That is indeed strange. Holding in the reset button should definitely clear the wireless router memory. Are you sure that you're going to the right administration page to configure the router? It should be something like 192.168.1.1.

Also... by any chance are there other wireless networks nearby? I'm wondering if your computer accidentally connected to that while the wireless router was off... and now you're going to the wrong router.

If none of that works, try leaving the router unplugged for about five minutes. The volatile memory shouldn't last much longer than that.

I recently bought an Amilio Laptop made by fujitsu Siemens I have tried two different wireless routers and cannot get the laptop to connect with either. It does have wireless built in. What am I doing...


Hi,

It might be that the Operating System is preventing connection to the router because:
  • the network is unsecured. look for the "Connect Anyway button";
  • the Amilo's WiFi is set to a manually configured IP address, pls try "Obtain an IP address automatically" in the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties of the Wireless Network Connection of the Control Panel/Network Connections;
  • it maybe that your Amilo has its own WiFi configuration and if so, you should disable the OS to manage your wireless connection.
Incidentally, you could try downloading a third party Wireless network detection software that is to verify that the Amilo's wireless card is working and that it can sense the Wireless router. An example would be NetStumbler.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back exact model number of the Amilo laptop, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I can't get internet connection when the router is in place but it works without it, i no longer have my instalation guide or software(cd)


The only "installation" you need for the router is to connect it to the modem, plug in the power and, if it's a wired router, to connect it to the computer.

Then configure your computer's internet connection to connect to the router. (How you do that depends on which operating system the computer is running.)

If you're getting a wireless connection with no router, you're connecting to someone else's router - which is both illegal and dangerous (it gives them access to your computer).

I have a linksys WRT546 wireless G router someone gave me. I want to connect it to my laptop which is wireless ready and compatible. What type of software or other directions do I need to make it work...


You don't need any extra software.

Connect ethernet cable between PC and router
On back of router may be a IP number like 192.186.1.1
Open internet explorer and type in this number
It may ask you for a password - try no password or 'admin'
If you cannot guess the password becuase it has been set to an unknown word. reset the router using hidden button on back.
Once you have a menu, use the wizard to input your ISP login name and password.
To set up wireless, set an SSID (any name - e.g. fred).
Try to get wireless working between laptop and router.
Once it works, set a WEP key in the router and computer for better security.

I have a linksys for my computer and labtop my daughter needs a network key to get on her laptop where do i find this number.


I am going to assume that you have a Linksys wireless router connected to your computer.

The network key is set in the router by using it's set-up page. Usually, you type in a 26 character code or a text string that is used to form the key.
After setting up the router, you turn on the laptop, scan for available networks, and select yours. Then you enter the network key, which will be exactly same as that you entered into the router setup.

If you are having trouble connecting from the laptop, I suggest you first try setting up the wireless router to use no encryption, just to make sure the laptop can find the network. Once this has been established, activate the security features.

Computer cannot access the internet


Try to disable wireless card on your desktop. With both the wireless and cat-5 socket enabled, "WITHOUT" the proper bridge settings, they will conflict and not be able to read.
