Question about Linksys Computers & Internet

Open Question

I pushed the reset button on my linksys router. I didn't know it would wipe out my network address, etc. I went through the reinstall but I didn't see how I could set up a network with the same name as I had before. Can someone help me rename my network to the same name as I had before so my other wireless equipment will work?

SOURCE: How can i reset my Linksys Wireless-G2.4GHZ Broadband Router settings

Try to reset the router. This should resolve your problem. That model has a small hole were you must press with some a paper clip for exemple for a few seconds. This will reset the router to its original state.

SOURCE: 3800HGV-B and LinkSys Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adapter

Because the linksys is talking about SecureEasySetup which most lynksys routers use. The 2wire 3800HGV-B button is not a SecureEasySetup button.

SOURCE: I have a linksys wrt160n wireless router,,

Is there any computer connected to the router ?
If not then connect the computer to the router. If you are connecting a wireless computer then disable the wireless connection on the computer. open the set up page of the router. change the wireless network name to something different that you never used before. change the standard channel to 11. save the settings. Try to connect to the wireless network. Check if you see the new network name ? If you see the new then try t connect and see if that works.
This router WRT160N has issues with the firmware.
Upgrade the firmware of the router. power cycle the router.

My linksys router doesnt have a default gateway and the reset buttton on the router doesnt work either


When you look between the Ethernet port and Power button, there should be a reset button there you should hold for 5 seconds. Of course if you do that, If you changed Network name and key that will be reset to the default settings, Also is wireless network showing when you pull up the Networks? You can leave user name blank, but default password is admin. Also email me with more info I will be glad to help

Iomega harddrive is networked to my Linksys router and is not working properly. I'd like to know how to reset and start over.


Hi,
You just have to reset the linksys router by using the reset button on the back. Push and hold the reset button for 30 seconds and this should reset the router. Access the router's setup page and set a static IP for the Iomega harddrive.
Hope this helps.

When i plug in my Linksys wrt54gs my computer says that i have limited or no connectivity to the net?


Hi, before anything check if you have "set ip address automatically" on the network card properties. As a second step you could reset the router to it's factory settings pushing the "reset" button on the back of the router for about 5 seconds. I hope it works.

I have a linksys router and my IP address is 192.168.1.1 how can I locate my passowrd/WEP?


The Linksys configuration URL is http://192.168.1.1 and if you cannot Login or remember the password then you can reset the router back to the factory defaults by -
Power up the Linksys and pressing and holding the pinhole reset button at the back of the Linksys for 30 secs. The router will restart.
Username Login = admin
Password = admin
You can now change the admin password and configure the wireless settings ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption etc.
Don't forget to configure the wireless card in your computer with the router's wireless dettings so the computer can connect to the Linksys.

How can I put a code on my linksys?


Open Internet Explorer.
Type 'http://192.168.0.1' (or try 'http://192.168.1.1').
This will connect to the built-in web-server inside the Linksys router.
Click to run the 'Wireless Networking Setup Wizard',
and choose an SSID and choose a password-code.

Problem connecting to the net


You router may be set to be DHCP enabled so that it allocates the ip addresses automatically to each pc, so check that the pc's network card with connection problems is set in the properties on the TCP/IP line is set to obtain an ip address automatically. You can also try, Start>run then type ipconfig /flushdns to clear the pc ip address and dns. and restart pc. Lastly if you pc is both network cabled and wireless, ensure one or the other is dissabled as this can confuse the ip adress alocation.
