My computer will not connect to my wndr3800 router but my computer will connect to my neighbors router


The first thing that you need to do is to reset the router. The reason why you need to reset the router because that will help you to fix the problem and to know the main problem/issue.

Steps

To perform a factory reset:
  1. On the back of your router, locate the Restore Factory Settings or Reset button.
  2. Using a paper clip or similar object, press and hold the Restore Factory Settings or Reset button for about seven seconds.
  3. Release the Restore Factory Settings or Reset button and wait for your router to reboot.
    After your router is finished with the factory reset, the Power light stops blinking and lights solid green.
    Note: The Power light on newer router models lights solid white.
    The factory default settings are restored.
  4. or you can visit youtube for the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUOcjDy02ts.

Note: Once you reset the router it will be back to factory default settings and you need to setup the internet connection settings on to your router


Once your done with the hard reset try connect your computer and if your computer will have the same issue connecting to the router it only means that the problem is on your computer / try to connect other device first before you reset the router

How can I get back to the factory default settings if I can not get a link between the router and the computer neither between the router and the internet modem...? The modem alone, works ok, but also, the...


What Brand Router do you have? If you want to reset to factory defaults, behind the router will be a small button a reset button, Push and hold that button for at least 5-10 seconds then let got this will reset the router back to factory defaults... and under the router must be a sticker where the Routers IP address should be indicated to access the GUI/Settings page.

Make sure that by trying to access the routers GUI or setting page that your are connected using Ethernet to be able to access the Routers GUI.

Once in the GUI settings Page check if the wireless radio is turned on to be able to access the router wireless to get connected to the internet.

I hope this helps.

I cannot connect to the internet using my netgear n150 wireless router. The internet light is orange but the modem is working fine and I can connect to the router itself.


When the router is turned on, the Internet light turns amber for about 20 seconds and then turns green. If the light does not turn green, the router has a problem. If the Internet light is still amber 1 minute after turning on power to the router: a. The Internet is not accessible. Confirm that you have the correct internet setting. b. Clear the router's configuration to factory defaults. This will set the router's IP address to 192.168.1.1. c. Turn the power off and back on to see if the router recovers. If its still not working, reset to factory defaults. You can restore the factory default configuration settings that reset the router's user name to admin, the password to password, and the IP address to 192.168.1.1. To restore the factory default configuration settings: 1. Use a sharp object such as a pen or a paper clip to press and hold the restore factory settings button, located on the rear panel of the router, for about 5 seconds, until the Power light begins to blink (see "Back Panel" on page 4). 2. Release the restore factory settings button, and wait for the router to restart, and for the Power light to stop blinking and become solid green. The factory default settings will be restored so that you can access the router from your Web browser using the factory defaults.

My wireless router number is WRT120N but I dont remember my pin number how can I can a new one


You need to reset your router to factory setting.
The reset process will restore your router's factory default settings. All of the customized settings of the router will then be erased and the router's IP address will be reverted back to 192.168.1.1 if you have changed it.
To perform a hardware reset on your Linksys router, follow these steps:
Resetting the Router Using the Reset Button
IMPORTANT: Before proceeding with the reset, take note of your router's current settings. You might need to check with your Internet Service Provider to get settings.

Press and hold the Reset button at the back of the router for ten seconds. It will reset your router to factory settings.

Need password to my netgear router n 300


what is the model #?
Most netgear routers default to a username of "admin" and password is either " admin ", "password" or it is just blank. Those are the defaults unless someone changed it.
If you cant get in you can hold down the reset button on the back for 30 seconds (while it is plugged into power) and that will set it back to factory default settings then one of the above should work.
If this was a help please give me 4 thumbs up as I am trying to build up my rep on this site!

I forgot my user name and password on my router. how do I reset router and log back in using the default password? Ans what is the default user name and password


In case you have forgotten the password of your router, there is no way to recover it back.
ALL YOU CAN DO IS TO RESET THE ROUTER TO FACTORY SETTINGS
You may reset router to factory settings by pressing the reset button on the back side of the router. Press the button for a few seconds, the lights on the front would blink and the router would restart with factory settings. Please note that ALL SETTING WOULD BE LOST...AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO MAKE ALL NETWORK CONFIGURATIONS AND SETTINGS ALL OVER AGAIN



GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

If i revert back to my factory settings on my netopia router will this impact my at&t settings? I'm just trying to let someone use our wireless access and have misplaced the login info


Hi,

Restoring the router to factory default will have impact on AT&T settings provided if you not made note of the setting details. However its adviced to call up AT&T and make a note of the settings before going for factory defaults.
