Check on the front panel of the router or look for a sticker on it or just look for the model number and after that check it in

I had the driver namely compqsp26790 but corrupted due to virus.Can i get same drivers again


The driver that you need is that for a specific brand of a laptop or for a router? Usually you won't be needing drivers for a router to make it work. If it is for a specific brand of a laptop/desktop, you can go to their support website and download it from there. e.g. HP Support Website

Hope this helps.

Error 52030. Unable rto connect to internet


Likely cause: It appears that the security settings entered into the Wii console are not the same as what your wireless router is set to allow, or your router is not able to assign the Wii an IP address.
How to fix: Make sure the security key and security type are entered into the Wii exactly as they appear in your router's settings; manually assign an IP address to the Wii.
  1. Don't know how to find your router's security key? Let us help! Select the brand of your router below and we'll show you how to access your router's settings. Linksys Netgear DLink Belkin Apple 2Wire All other brands
      Once you have entered the correct WEP or WPA key into your system, try the connection test again. If the problem persists, keep reading this page.
    Additional information:
    • Using an Actiontec or 2Wire router? The default security key is often found on a sticker located on the router.
    • Security keys are case-sensitive.
    • WEP keys contain numbers 0 through 9, and only letters A through F.
  2. Manually assign an IP address to your Wii console.
      Assigning an IP address to your Wii is easy!
    1. Access the Wii System settings and select "Internet" from Page 2.
    2. Select "Connection Settings" and choose the connection file you currently use (will have a red border around it).
    3. Select "Change Settings," and click the right blue arrow twice to reach "Auto-Obtain IP Address."
    4. Click on "No" and select "Advanced Settings."
    5. Now, click in the "IP Address" field to enter an IP address. Look at the brand of your router, and enter the IP address listed below into the field.
      • Linksys - enter:
      • Netgear - enter:
      • Belkin - enter:
      • D-Link - enter:
      • Apple - enter:
      • 2Wire - enter:
      • Actiontec - enter:
      • SMC Networks - enter:
      • Don't see your router brand listed? Click here for help with finding an IP address to enter.
    6. Once the IP address is entered, select "OK."
    7. Select the Subnet Mask box, then enter and select "OK."

    9. Select "Confirm" but DO NOT select "Save."
    10. Tap the right arrow to reach the page ro "Auto Obtain DNS."
    11. Select "No" and then "Advanced Settings."
    12. Click into the "Primary DNS" field and enter:
    13. Click into the "Secondary DNS" field and enter: Please note: These are public DNS's provided by Google and are subject to Google's Terms of Service. If you prefer to not use this service, doing an Internet search for "public DNS" will provide you with several other options you can use.
    14. Select "Confirm," and then "Save."
    15. Click on "Save" and then "OK" to perform a connection test.
    16. If the test was successful, then your Wii is now connected online. If you received error code 52130, please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.
  3. Other suggestions:
    • Did this connection used to work but has suddently stopped? "Power cycle" your router by unplugging it from the power outlet. Wait a few minutes, and plug the router back in. Wait a couple of minutes for it to initialize, and try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.
    • The Wii may have detected and set itself to the wrong security type during the initial connection set up. Try creating a new connection file and going through the connection process again (steps), but be sure that when the Wii asks for a security code, the type shown on screen (WEP or WPA) is what your router is set to. If it is different, try a "Manual Setup."
    • Check for wireless interference, which can affect the signal strength to the Wii console. To help minimize wireless interference, try the following:
      • Make sure other wireless devices such as cordless phones or wireless speakers are turned off, and that the Wii console is an open area without objects or electronics blocking the signal. (For instance, if the Wii is placed in a crowded entertainment center, try moving the Wii somewhere with more room.)
      • Change your router's channel setting to 1 or 11. By default, most routers broadcast on channel 6, which overlaps with other channels and may be weaker. For help doing this, click here and select your router brand and model (if available). The information you need is found in the "Broadcast Channel:" area.

How to access this kind of brand of router? its my project in school can you help me..who is the inventor of this brand?

Linksys, is a brand of home and small office networking products now produced by Cisco Systems, though once a separate company founded in 1995 before being acquired by Cisco in 2003. There is a full history on Wiki (here)

To access the device, the computer must be connected to the router with an ethernet cable (not over WiFi.) Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer. Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter]. 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.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa! We would sure appreciate a 4 "thumbs-up" rating for this answer. Happy holidays!

I cannot identify the manufacturer of my wireless router

Most manufacturers are pretty quick to stick their name on their product so you'll see it. If there's no label on the rear or bottom maybe someone peeled it off. It would be very unusual not to find a serial number sticker at least.

Anyway, you might be able to find the brand from the router setup screens. Connect your computer with an Ethernet cable to one of the router's LAN connectors. Then try going to these addresses:


These three cover a large number of the router brands. If one of them works for your router you'll reach its setup page, or at least be prompted for a password. The setup pages will clearly show who made your router.

If none of those addresses works, this list of router manufacturers, addresses and default passwords may be useful.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

Lose router signal everytime i restart my laptop

This seems to be an issue with the router itself. As the laptop is able to connect to other networks easily, the trouble seems to be with the router.

Try updating the firmware on the router. Also, change the wireless channel on the router and check if that helps. If the issue persists then I believe you will have to get the router replaced.
