On the computer that you use the to configure the router for the first time, there should be a "linksys.txt" file on it. You should find all the router info there. If you don't have it anymore, the only option is to reset and reconfigure the router.

I have lost the security code and have a new laptop, how do i set it up to work


Hi!

If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router.
Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.

If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command
ipconfig /all

it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.

If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.

Hope it helped,

Bogdan

How do i reset my wireless router, cause i dont remember my password?


Hi enaral100 !

Here is the back view of your router:
omerk.gif

As you can see, there is a reset button.
From USR website:

To restore the factory default settings, use a paperclip to press in and hold the RESET button for five to ten seconds. If the RESET button is pressed for less than five seconds, the Wireless MAXg Router will reboot.

Best of luck,
omer.

Password not working


This is usually a problem with not remembering the correct password. Quickest path to resolution is to reset the router (usually a small pin-hole that you stick something like a straightened paper clip into). Once the router is reset see if you can connect without a wireless password. Go online for only a minute and see if you can connect to google.com. Don't go wandering all over the internet, your router is unprotected at this point. If you can successfully get to google through the wireless connection without a password, unplug the internet cable (the cable between the router and the wall, modem, whatever). Using your PC browser go to the router setup menu - usually putting 192.168.1.1 in the browser address field and pressing enter works, but if that doesn't work you'll need to check the Linksys web site for the correct ip address. Locate the password setup menu and configure the settings. Note that once you set up the password your wireless connection will be disconnected and you'll have to reconnect to the router using the new password. An alternative is to connect the pc to the router with an ethernet cable during the password menu setup steps.

I have a U.S. Robotics USRobotics USR5461 Wireless router


heres the online installation manual http://www.usr.com/support/5461/5461-ug/index.html
see configuration tab - You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
------------- so if you cannot remember the username and password - you will need to reset to fsactory condition and reset all the settings in the router for it to work with your ISP again
the reset button is on the back - RESET Button: To restore the factory default settings, use a paperclip to press in and hold the RESET button for five to ten seconds. If the RESET button is pressed for less than five seconds, the Wireless MAXg Router will reboot.

We recently moved and set up the computer. I have


Moving means that you have to setup the router again. The WEP key has to be setup again. Your old settings were for old location. Could be same settings, but they have to be setup again.

How to check settings on router


Bring up your internet brownser....in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter. You will be given a sign on screen for the router. Put the name of the router (whatever you named it during setup) in the name box and type in the password (also made during the initial setup) This will get you into the routers settings. Once you are in the settings, click on the wireless tab, You should be in basic wireless settings. make sure you are in Manual setup and look at the box marked "network Mode", look in the drop down menu and pick "BG-mixed" Click save settings and exit the program.

If you cant remember the name and password of the router, then you may have to do a complete reset and reinstall of the router and settings. We can help you through that. If your router is a Linksys, then the name of the router if you didn't change it should be "linksys" and the password should be "admin", if you changed it during startup...then I have no idea and that is up to you, but like I said, you can always do a complete reset and start over.

Linksy router lem....!!!!


Try the following to reset it to the factory defaults.

Warning! This will reset all the settings in the router! Including any custom setup stuff, like WPA key, etc.

Turn the router on. Press and hold the reset button on it for 30 seconds. The reset button is usually a small recessed button on the back of the unit depending on which model you have.

Now you should be able to connect to it through your browser at http://192.168.1.1. Depending on your model, the username is blank and the password is "admin" (without the quotes) OR both username & password are "admin". Note that you will need to connect your computer to the router with a network cable to go through the setup process - you can't do it wirelessly.
