Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin)and password by default the password is 1234 unless it has already been changed
from the left-hand navigation menu of the router manager,select wireles set up>wireless settings
from the center screen,select your encrytion type from under the Security Options heading
if the wireless network passphrase is visible,review it and use it to log on devices onto your network.
If it is not visible you can change your wireless passphrase but changing your passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection
Connect your computer to the router using an Ethernet Cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking apply.
If you cannot log into your router:Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.

Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.

If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.

If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.

Cannot connect thru linksys router to internet. I can connect with direct cable but when connected to linksys does not connect.


Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

My wirless devices can find my router but fail to connect to the internet.


Can the devices connect to the web when plugged directly into the modem? if not, contact internet provider. If yes, reboot modem, make sure it is connected to the wan/internet port (not one of the 4 lan ports) and reboot the router. If no good then replace ethernet cable between modem and router. If still no good, press and hold reset button on router to put it back to factory settings. If still no good and router is less than 1 year old, contact the manufacturer for a warranty replacement. If out of warranty, try another router.

Lost DHCP connection. I changed nothing on my config


Hi,

You may want to press and hold (using a pen or a paper clip) the reset button of the router for 30 seconds and then unplug the power of the router. Turn off the modem, wait for 10 seconds, turn on the modem, and then the router, and make sure that the modem is connected to the internet port of the router and PC to the ethernet port (1, 2, 3 or 4). See if the router will obtain an IP address from the modem. If not, download here http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WRT54G2/download the latest firmware for the router.

Ensure that you download the correct version for the router.

Change the calbe from the router to the dsl modem. Make sure you check labels on the rear of these devices to make sure the connections go where indicated. Is there and ethernet light on your modem. If that is on then the connection is made. Also check if the DSL modem works directly connected to the pc.
