Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Can't get back on

I had to reload Vista and can't get back on my network. I put in the short password and the really long one and neither works. It keeps telling me I have the wrong key. What now? I'm ready to punt! Sure would appreciate some ideas.

    Actually went to the linksys site and they have an automatic download to reinstall the whole thing. It is wonderful and fixed the thing without knowing a think in less than 5 minutes.

I forget my password and i don't know what to do next......???

With some OS you can get into the unit and reset the password.

Google request with the specific OS you have in there to see if there is a remedy. If none then about all you can do is use the restore disks that you have to reload your pc to factory condition. Unfortunately when you do this you will lose all of your saved material. If you get a hold of a Hiren disk you can get into the hard drive and transfer out any files you want to save to a usb stick or external drive before a reload operation. Then after the reload you put them back into the appropriate place(s).

Had to reload vista and now can't get wireless to work

Vista is known for having connectivity specially with the wireless. Make sure you have all your updates and drivers up to date. If still not working consider removing the password on the wireless network or changing to OS to Windows 7 or XP.

My netbook wont let me log on, and is telling that my password is wrong. How can I logon?

Check if Caps lock is on. If there is a local administrator account you can sign on with instead, try that. If this is a work laptop you've taken home to use, it may be looking for your work's wireless network.

I forgot my password on my dell laptop. its a vista

i)in case of windows's xp it is possible to recover forgotten password, whereas in case vista, it provides high security and therefore it is not possible to get forgotten password.

ii) i would suggest u to format or reload ur OS or reload Vista using Vista CD ........

Thanking you

Sound driver

you may just need to reload your driver
if that don't work you'll have to put vista back on
i assume the system came with vista therefore it would have a more updated driver that may not be compatible with xp
let me know if you need anymore help
