You can turn off the router for 1 min and turn in back on. Try to reconnect to the wireless network. In case that it will not work just give a feedback so we can try other solutions.

Risricky@ai cannot install my linksys router onto my laptop

I presume you mean that you cannot connect to your linksys router from your laptop and have not used it before.
You should make the initial connection using a network cable rather than wireless. Once you have done this you will be able to connect to the linksys router administration webpage by opening internet explorer (other web browsers are available) and typing in http://ipaddress where ip address is the default ip address as specified in the router getting started or installation guide. The default for Linksys routers is Once you can access the Administration page you should be able to configure the wireless settings using the inbuilt wizards.

Hope you get sorted

Laptop cant find router to set or change password

You will need to connect directly to the router with a Ethernet cable to configure the wireless portion of the router. Once you have done that, then you should be able to do the configuration in the future using the wireless. If you do not have the manual, you can download it from the Linksys website.

Thanks, Jim

Trying to connect a new laptop to my linksys wireless setup and I enter the WPA key and it says it is aquiring network address, but never does. What am I missing.

Stop and start over with Router Setup by using a paper clip to press router reset button. Now, with router connected via CAT-5 cable to a computer's NIC. On this computer, using IE or other web access, go to to access router web setup. Set the Wireless properties, such as SSID (Network Name) and Security properties, like WEP/WPA passwords. This password will be needed by all computers accessing this router's signal. At this point, your router should be putting out a signal identified by the SSID name, all other settings for the router should be set already to the point where it will work, like the IP addresses declared in the router setup. Best left alone, at least till it is up and running. It gets the network address from your Internet Provider, and they are the only ones that can give you an IP address.

Linksys router connects and says it has an excellent signal but will not aquire an address please help

Try a hardwire computer and get into the setup page of the router by typing on your browser . Make sure you have changed the SSID or the network name of your router to your choice. Check if you have security set. If you have one make sure they match your computer.

Cannot aquire ip address from wireless router

Hi, If your newer usb wireless adaptor does not have the same settings as your router this is the problem you have. First make sure you have installed the cd software that came with the usb adaptor without it plugged in. After that is complete make sure the wireless adaptor is seen by the computer it is attached to. Then you need to open the settings of the usb adaptor and set it up same as your router's settings. This includes the WEP security password if you use it. Good Luck.

Have you configured your wireless adapter with same WPA key that you had set on the wireless router?
Do you detect other Wireless routers in your area and are they using the same wireless channel as your router?
If so change the wireless channel on your wireless to an unused wireless channel to avoid interference with other wireless routers.
