    hello!



    if you want your router to go back to its default settings, try to reset the router. Try these steps on how to reset the router properly



    -- while the router is powered on, push the reset for 10sec

    -- still holding the reset button, unplug the power cable

    -- after 5sec plug the power cable back in then release the reset



    this should reset the router settings back to default.



    Your router is a dhcp server so if you connect a computer directly to the router, it will provide an ip address to your computer

Hello!

Checking the IP address of the computer allows you to verify if the computer is getting a valid IP address from the router. You have to check the TCP/IP properties of the Ethernet Adapter installed on the computer.

Finding the local IP address of a Linksys router is useful when accessing the router’s web-based setup page. This will identify what IP address to type in the Address bar, in case you forgot your router’s IP address. For instructions, please follow the steps below.

NOTE: Linksys default IP address is 192.168.1.1. The default Gateway IP Address of your computer is the routers ip address

Windows 2000/XP

Step 1: Click Start, then Run.
Step 2: When the Run window opens, type “cmd” in the Open field, then click OK.
Step 3: When the MS DOS Prompt appears, type “ipconfig/all” then press [Enter].
Step 4: Check your computer’s IP Address, Default Gateway and DNS. They should have the same first three numbers. It can be any number other than 169.254.x.x. The default IP Address is 192.168.16.x where x is any number from 100-149 and Default Gateway is 192.168.16.1. In this example, we used Local Area Connection.

Windows 98/ME

Step 1: Click Start, then Run. A window similar to Step 2 will appear.
Step 2: When the Run window appears, type “winipcfg” in the Open field, then click OK.
Step 3: When the IP Configuration window appears, select the Network Adapter or the Wireless Adapter that the PC is using from the drop-down menu.
Step 4: Check your computer’s IP Address and Default Gateway. They should have the same first three numbers. It can be any number other than 169.254.x.x. The default IP Address is 192.168.16.x where x is any number from 100-149 and the default Gateway is 192.168.16.1.

NOTE: If your computer is getting 0.0.0.0 or 169.254.xxx.xxx IP address you need to release and renew your IP address.

Reset your router back to it's factory settings by holding the reset button for about 5 seconds. I have provided a list of the most popular router brands. If it does not work you may need to google what your specific model's default IP address/default username/default passwords are, for example search for "Encore ENHWI-2AN3 default IP address" The default login info can change, it can depend on where you obtained your router. If you purchased it yourself from a store then the standard defaults should work. If you obtained your router from your Internet Provider you may need to contact your service provider. It also may depend whether it's an old or new model router as well. And you may need to press and hold the reset button on your router several times before it actually clears. Make sure you have a wired connection then once you have accessed your router simply run the Setup Wizard. Set your SSID as something you'll remember like "Mavericks Network" and your Password can be something like your phone number for example 3109876543

Belkin - Username: Leave the field blank Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is: 192.168.2.1

Buffalo - Username: root Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is: 192.168.11.1

D-Link - Username: admin Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is: 192.168.0.1

Encore - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address 192.168.1.1

Linksys - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address 192.168.1.1

When i try to install my Linksys wireless G, it ask for a password. I don't know it and it won't let me proceed!


Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].

NOTE : For WRP400, the default IP address would be "192.168.15.1" and if you place the router behind a primary router with the IP address of "192.168.15.1", then the router will automatically assume a new default IP address, "192.168.16.1".

3676-003.png

NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.

The router's IP address can be changed by:


1. Running the router's setup CD.

2. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page.


1. Check the router's IP address. For instructions, click here.

2. Press the Reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds.


NOTE
: This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased. The router's IP address will be "192.168.1.1" and the password will be "admin".


Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.

If you forgot the router's password you need to reset the router. For instructions, click here.

How do I use the Remote Management feature on my router?


Remote Management allows the device to be configured through the WAN (Wide Area Network) port from the Internet using a web browser. Step 1 Log into the web based configuration of the router by typing in the IP address of the router (default:192.168.0.1) in your web browser. The username is admin (all lowercase) and the password is blank (nothing). Step 2 Click the Tools tab and click the Admin button. Step 3 Select the Enabled button to enable Remote Management. In the IP Address field type in the public IP address you wish to manage the router. Note: If you don´t know the IP address or wish to allow more than one IP address to manage the router then put an asterisk (*) in the IP Address field. You cannot enter an IP range. Step 4 By default the port used to Remote Manage the router is set to 8080. Change the port number by selecting the down arrow next to the Port Number drop down menu. Step 5 Click on Apply and then click Continue to save the changes. To Remote Manage the router you will need to type in the Public IP Address of the router in your web browser along with the Port Number (separated by a colon) you selected in Step 4.
