reset your router should be a reset button on the back, hold in till the lights on the front flash then its reset open explorer browser type in 10.1.1.1 or 10.0.0.1 log in as Administrator add new user set password while adding new user save your new settings(write them down too) run your network wizard again with your new settings applied
test the internet for function
if no function then contact your ISP to assist with connection to internet
If you have a virus or malware that is not letting you connect to the internet or your settings have been corrupt, there is a simple setting that you can look for to correct the error. The most prevalent of these is that you can connect to the router and your network but you have no internet access. This is the one I will concentrate on here.
Bring up your internet browser and click on “Tools”,scroll down and click on Internet Options.
Now click on the “Connections” tab.At the bottom of the page, click on the LAN settings button.
Make sure the box for “Automatically detect settings is checked. Now, Un-check the box that states to use a “proxy server for your LAN” at the bottom. Click OK and OK.
Reboot the machine and try to connect to the internet, you should be able to. I have to also add that in some cases if you have “Selective Startup” selected through “MSCONFIG”….it may be beneficial to change that to “Normal Startup” until you get the other settings configured.
Try unplugging both the modem and the router. count to 15 then plug back in and try.
Keep in mind also that some routers dont connect 100% till you open a browser, weird but I have had similar problems.
It sounds like you may have problems at both ends.
Several things come to my mind;
make sure you shut down ALL programs in the background.
you are trying to problem solve by elimination, so close anything that may connect to the internet and take away that variable.
scan for spyware etc.
do a registry clean, temp files cleanup etc.
sometimes restarting the pc can help
I know exactly what has happened u did not knew the password for router manager u reset it After reset router , it came back to its factory defaults, now the password will come back to its factory defaults ( if u still dont know the factory defaults password, check manual provided to u with this router ) After reseting , as router came back to factory defaults , it also changed the wireless encryption key or WPA password with which u were able to connect earlier to its factory defaults original key and due to that reason u are getting limited or no connectivity coz the WEP or WPA key has changed. Solution: IF U know the original wireless key or WPA key try to reenter it and see whether it connects or not if still does not work
Then connect ur PC or laptop with ethernet or LAN CABLE (CAT) Your internet will start working with the cable NOW u will be able to open the router manager page Type the factory defaults password and log in Then goto the wireless settings page and check what is the WEP key stored in ur router and also try to channels of the router and see wherher it increases the signal strength or not Once you have got the key from the router manager page Try to reenter it and then surely it will work......... Best of luck
in the installation manual you have a url you can type in...its something like 192.428.111.1...ect about 10-12 numbers...type this number in the internet browser search window. this will tell you first if you have access to the internet. you should get the settings windows for your router. there you can make adjustments as needed for your rounter unit.once confirmed.
if you are having access to the wireless network you set up the password you set in is obviously incorrect when it was set up. first check the light on the front of the wireless router it should have various light on ..such as power,,usb...dsl...and internet..with the internet light flashing... as a precaution please do a repair connection on your internet access point on the computer ur using..right click the wireless icon at the bottom of your screen if ur using xp..sometimes this repair will be just enough to clear up issues.and allow access.
if this continues...you may need to reinstall the unit...there is generally a reset button (very small) on the underside of ur wireless unit and take the appropriate steps..
