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 find the right ssid to use for wifi for ipad

Did you type the SSID exactly as displayed, and they are case sensitive, so 'gbp22ST8' is not the same as 'gbp22st8'.

If you did, then you need to go to the computer and go into the settings for the router and find the SSID password in there.

I have a Linksys Wireless router that hasn't caused a bit of trouble since I installed it several years ago. Now, however, I am experiencing some odd things... for example, I can not watch videos that are...

There are many causes for poor wireless connections, and many solutions:

First of all, give your network a unique SSID. Do not use "linksys". If you are using "linksys" you may be trying to connect to your neighbor's router. Also set "SSID Broadcast" to "enabled". This will help your computer find and lock on to your router's signal.

Poor wireless connections are often caused by radio interference from other 2.4 GHz devices. This includes wireless phones, wireless baby monitors, microwave ovens, wireless mice and keyboards, wireless speakers, and your neighbor's wireless network. In rare cases, Bluetooth devices can interfere. Even some 5+ GHz phones also use the 2.4 Ghz band. Unplug these devices, and see if that corrects your problem.

In your router, try a different channel. There are 11 channels in the 2.4 GHz band. Usually channel 1, 6, or 11 works best. Check out your neighbors, and see what channel they are using. Because the channels overlap one another, try to stay at least +5 or -5 channels from your strongest neighbors. For example, if you have a strong neighbor on channel 9, try any channel 1 through 4.

Also, try to locate the router about 4 to 6 feet above the floor, in an open area. Do not locate it behind your monitor or near other computer equipment or speakers. The antenna should be vertical.

Also, in the computer, go to your wireless software, and go to "Preferred Networks" (sometimes called "Profiles" ). There are probably a few networks listed. Delete any network named "linksys". Also delete any network that you do not recognize, or that you no longer use. If your current network is not listed, enter its info (SSID, encryption (if any), and key (if any) ). Then select your current network and make it your default network, and set it to automatic login. You may need to go to "settings" to do this, or you may need to right click on your network and select "Properties" or "settings".

If the above does not fix your problem, download and install the latest driver for your wireless card.

Some users have reported improved wireless performance by switching to WPA encryption.

If you continue to have problems, try the following:

For wireless g routers, try setting the "Transmission Rate" to 54 Mbps.

If you still have trouble, download and install the latest firmware for your router. After a firmware upgrade, you must reset the router to factory defaults, then setup the router again from scratch. If you saved a router configuration file, DO NOT use it.

Got a netgear wireless modem from a friend and she

The Netgear site should have to software to download, but with the Router connected to the computer you really should be able to connect to the router's onboard software by, using Web Address and logging in to the router. Use User Name admin and leave the password blank. Go ahead and set up all the goodies you need, like Security and Pass Codes. I have4 bee4n using a Netgear Router in my home network for many years and have no complaints! This software is the exact same software they have on the setup disk.

If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.

For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Everytime I set up the security for my wireless laptops on the Belkin F5D8233-4v3 it kicks me out of the router and I am no longer connected

I think you are trying to secure the network using a wireless computer.
When you change any wireless settings on the router , your computer should be connected to the router with the Ethernet cable.

if your computer is not connected to the router then connect the computer to the router.

My internet works on my main computer but my secound computer which is wirelessly connect does not work.

Have you tried connecting the 2nd computer wihtout any security first to make sure it works like that? Just have it set up for a minute or so to test. Once that's done, try using the more secure WEP or WPA settings. Make sure the MAC Filtering is not on for this as well as it will not let anything work unless the MAC exactly maches. There are lots of nitpicky settings on the security side of the wireless router. Try to follow the directions that came with the router. Also, if the laptop came with software for the wireless connection, try to use that and don't let Windows handle the wireless connection. I've had better results not letting Windows configure it.

I tried to secure my router but had trouble doing so, I cannot connect to the internet now

i assume that you have tried to secure your router using a wireless computer. if so, there's a possibilty that you have sucred your router successfully and you need to connect you computer again to the wireless signal using your password. if you can't remember your wireless password or if the password you are typing is not being accepted, you need to hardwire a computer to the router to double check the wireless settings that were enabled on the router. once you have verified all your wireless settings, connect the computer wirelessly and enter the correct wireless password/network key and check if you'll get internet connection again

hope this'll help you but if not just indicate the exact brand and model of your router and your wireless adapter.
