In order to try to recover your router, the first thing to do is to try to reset the router to factory defaults. To do this: 1) Power down all computers, the router, and the modem, and unplug them from the wall. 2) Disconnect all wires from the router. 3) Power up the router and allow it to fully boot (1-2 minutes). 4) Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds, then release it, then let the router reset and reboot (2-3 minutes). 5) Power down the router. 6) Connect one computer by wire to port 1 on the router (NOT to the internet port). 7) Power up the router and allow it to fully boot (1-2 minutes). 8) Power up the computer (if the computer has a wireless card, make sure it is off). 9) Try to ping the router. To do this, click the "Start" button > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. A black DOS box will appear. Enter the following: "ping 192.168.1.1" (no quotes), and hit the Enter key. You will see 3 or 4 lines that start either with "Reply from ... " or "Request timed out." If you see "Reply from ...", your computer has found your router. 10) Open your browser and point it to 192.168.1.1. This will take you to your router's login page. Leave the user name blank, then in the password field, enter "admin" (with no quotes). This will take you to your router setup page. Note the version number of your firmware (usually listed near upper right corner of screen). Exit your browser. If you get this far without problems, try the setup disk, and see if you can get your router set up and working. When you get to the password prompt in setup, be sure to leave the user name blank.If this does not fix your problem, then report back with your results, including any error messages, and the firmware version number if you have it. Also report back the status of your router lights.

My wireless router stopped working. If I bypass the router, I have Internet. The error message says "wireless security types do not match. I have a linksys wireless g broadband router.


wireless security type is the encryption setting you are using.
you either need to change it to wpa/wpa2 mix or wpa.
make sure the client(laptop) is set for wpa or wpa2.

I would try a factory reset of the router if there are not any special settings saved in the router. To factory reset the router press and hold down the reset button on the back with a pen or similar object for 30 seconds and then unplug the power cord and plug it back in.

Bought linksy modem because of provider now wireless dont work


Hi Guys,

What needs to be defined first is the reason as to why it had stopped working. Before a suggestion is made, we first need to find out what the model number of your router is (there are many version of the linksys wrt54g router). Once that is defined i suggest you reset your router by doing the instructions as per this web page (cop and paste in your browser): http://technicallyeasy.net/2008/01/how-to-reset-linksys-wrt54g-wireless/

Once you have done that, the router should be set to factory default leaving you with a fresh clean slate. You can then proceed to configure the router for wireless security (if you need it) by following the steps here: http://technicallyeasy.net/2007/09/securing-linksys-wrt54g-wireless-router/

The instructions on these pages should help, however, if you face any uncertainties, please do feel free to get back to me and i shall attempt to cover whatever i can do to help the both of you out. Thank you.

Regards,

Technomancer.
