Forgot user id for router


Look on the back of your router for a url (numerical Web address) that is the format of 123.456.7.8 In your PC Internet browser put said url in address bar and connect to your router. Your user id should be on the first page. If you have forgotten your password contact your service provider to reset.
However your user ID and preset password should be on the sticker on the back of your router. If none of this works contact your service provider.

I have a lynksys router. It will work with our mac, but if i try to get online with my pc, neiter will connect or if one is connected, it will disconnect. can i fix this


Hi,

I see that you are having issues with your network connection, I believe that you are trying to connect wireless on both systems.

* Check your Linksys for settings that limit the routers wireless connection, most wireless routers have an option on how many computers can connect wireless to the router, a wireless signal does not chose what OS to allow for a wireless connection.

* get in your Linksys Routers Setting page from IE or Firefox using your Default gateway IP from there on you can check your Routers settings, user name depends if your internet service provider changed the Routers user name and password but for a Linksys try admin / password or admin / admin for the User name and Password field.

Hope this helps you thanks and have a good day.

Can't find password for my router. tried: user


You'll find the manual on the CD as well. It answers many of your questions...

Default password is "admin" (without the quotes, all lowercase) unless you have changed it with the configuration program on the CD. Leave the username field empty.

How to set a password?


  • Access the router's default configuration address through your Web browser by entering this address: http://192.168.1.1 (see Resources). Do not enter a user name. Enter "admin" for the password. That process works for all new Linksys routers. If you have changed the user name or password in the past, use the user name and password that you created.

  • 2

    When the configuration screen opens, click on the "Wireless" tab and select "Wireless Security" to view the router's current security password. The "Security Mode" field will say "Disabled" if you do not have a password to secure your network.

  • 3

    Select the appropriate encryption type from the "Security Mode" drop-down menu. Linksys routers offer WEP and WPA encryption. WPA encryption allows you to use a single password to access the network. WEP encryption creates 10- or 26-character keys that act as your password. Some of your wireless devices may only utilize a certain type of encryption. Determine which protocol is best for your network.

  • 4

    Enter a password that will be required to access the network. For WPA encryption, you can write your own password. For WEP encryption, click the "Generate" button to create passwords that can be used to access the network. Write down your passwords and keep them in a secure location.

  • 5

    Click "Save Settings" to confirm your changes. Your network will now be secured and will require a password for access.

  • 6

    Click the "Administration" tab to create a password to access the router configuration page itself. Be sure to change the password from the default "admin." Reenter the password for confirmation in the next field. Click "Save Settings" to confirm your new password.

    How to change password


    HI ada122mt99

    What you will do is go to your browser and in the address line type in 192.168.1.1 then a window will come up asking for the current user name and password. Enter that information and it will let you in. Once inside the router, you go to settings, were it will let you change the password.

    Now, if you don't know the current user name and password, on the back of the router is a reset button, press and hold the button for approximately 5 seconds, and it will reset it the user and password back to the MFG's default.

    Good Luck,

    Password protection for my linksys wireless router


    you need to get into the routers settings and look in the menu for security and select atleast WEP security and either you type a password in to reveal a 8 digit code or type in your own mixture of numbers and letters, which will then have to be entered into each pc when they try to connect. You can also look in the SSID and remove the name or dissable SSID so as your network will not appear on anybody elses wireless searches.
