Try hard reseting it by pressing and holding the reset button for at least 20 to 30 seconds just to be sure. And then power on again the router.

Hello
Reset the router.
1 power down pc and unplug all cables from router including power.
2 Find small reset button inback of router,use a pen tip or paperclip to hold in this button for 30 seconds.
3 Plug power cable back into router.
4 When light is on plug other cables back in.
5 Restart pc.
This should allow you to use 192.168.1.1

Also you can go to start then run in windows and type cmd then hit enter
Once box pops up type in ipconfig then hit enter.
This will show you a list of numbers,look for the one that says ip address,use it to log onto router.

Wireless Network Reset and Setup - Linksys


If you are unable to connect your laptop wireless to your Linksys wireless access point/router, the easiest and fastest way to get going is to reset your router to the factory defaults. This will make your router work like the day you bought it.

There are 2 steps involved Reset your router, Setup/Secure a new router

Reset your router:

  • Unplug your DSL/Cable modem from power (not your access point/router) Leave this unplugged for now


Next
  • On the rear of your Linksys router you will find a small RESET button
  • With the power still on the router, Press and hold (with a pin/pen tip) the RESET button for 30 seconds.
  • Release the RESET button a wait 15 seconds for the router to reboot


almost done....
  • Unplug your Linksys router from power
  • Plug your DSL/Cable modem back in to power
  • Wait 1 minute for the modem to boot up
  • Be sure the ethernet (cat5) cable from your modem is securely plugged into the WAN port on the back of your Linksys router. This is usually labeled WAN or Internet above the jack
  • Plug your Linksys router back into power.


You will now be able to connect to the internet with your wireless device. I would advise that you follow the next steps in securing your wireless network.


Setup/Secure a new router

Log into your router
  • Type 192.168.1.1 into your web browser and hit enter
  • In the login fields (case sensitive):
  • Username: leave_this_field_blank
  • Password: admin
  • Click OK


Once in the web interface for your router
  • Click Wireless tab - Basic Wireless Settings
  • Find the Wireless Network Name (SSID) field
  • change this to your new network name (this is the name you will see when you connect through your wireless device)
  • Find the Wireless Channel field
  • Change this from 6 (default) to 1 or 11

  • Click on Wireless Security
  • Find the Security Mode field
  • Choose WPA2 - Personal
  • WPA Algorithm choose AES
  • WPA Shared Key type in your new password you will use to connect to your network

Click Save Changes and your router will now reboot. You will now need to enter in that same password (WPA Shared Key) when you first connect with your laptop to your wireless network

Thanks for reading this. After an overnight power outage, performance on my D-Link DIR-655 is greatly reduced. I still get internet, but only two bars show on my Macbook Pro whereas it was a solid five...


Try unplugging it from the power outlet and from the modem to powercycle it. If its still the same thing then yes you can press and hold the reset button for 5 secs then release. If your using the default wireless settings found on the sticker of your router then you won't have any problem, however, if you setup your own wireless settings on your router then you made need to set it up once again after the reset.

Reset the router


1. On the back of your router there is a little black reset button. Use a pen or paper clip and press down for 10 seconds. Make sure the lights on the router stop blinking for one second. Release the button and make sure to reset your wireless security and network ID.
2. If that doesn't work just unplug your routers power cord. This is the easiest way to reset your internet connection without resetting your router to factory settings.
3. If neither of those work, unplug the power cord of your modem. This will completely reset the internet connection without resetting the routers settings.

Lost power & now when i reset all my equipment my wlan light doesn't go on & we can't connect to the internet ???


Hi rick,

I see that there was a power outage, now your wireless will not turn ON as you mentioned.

Have you tried checking the Linksys Router settings if the Wireless radio is turned ON.

It is possible that when the power went out the Router was reset to default and may have turned OFF the Wireless Radio on the Router.

  • Next open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Enter admin for both the username and password.
  • You should see the Setup page.

Make sure that in the Wireless page that the Wireless SSID Broadcast is Enabled because if it is Disabled your wireless device will not detect the Router at all.

Also you try and reset the Router from behind, there should be a PINHOLE Button there that you can press and hold down for at least 30 seconds to reset the Router s settings to defaults.

If still the Wireless Light will not Turn ON then most probably the Power outage may have damaged the wireless radio on the Router.

I hope that this will help with your concern.

Have a nice day,

mvincentc

Hi, I forgot the password so can not change it. How do I reset the password? Thanks,


Hello
First unplug the power from the router.
Next there should be a small reset button maybe in the back.Hold it in for 1 min.

Plug router back in.

Once your back running open your browser and type.192.168.1.1
hit enter.

Then you will use admin as username and the word password as the password.

once in the router go to the security page and change the username,write it down somewhere.

Router will reboot once your done.

Dlink router is not connecting to the internet


Check the lights on the router to make sure both out going and incoming are on.

Manual link below in case that helps

ftp://ftp.dlink.co.uk/di_broadband_gateways/di-524/di-524_manual.pdf

If not both on contact broadband supplier as IP for router may have been "altered" and will need resetting their end.

Not unknown for an outage to be proceeded by a "spike" which can blow unprotected items.

Lost wireless connection


if:

if the power light is blinking, a little bad news because the router is now showing a sign of defectivity, a firmware upgrade could be a solution.

you may try to reset it this way:

Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds, once you reach the 25th seconds, unplug the power then put it back in right on the 30 second, then release the reset button, wait for another 20 seconds then unplug the power from the router, after around 5-10 seconds plug it back in.
