Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

I have a new i phone, I cannot get it to pick up my linksys router in my home. I enter the password (99% sure the password is correct). My laptop works fine on this router. Do I need to reset the router and re install with another password? I have not changed any settings on the phone from the factory. thanks Tommy

I have to assume that you have turned on WiFi in your iPhone. If you have made your router's SSID hidden, please un-hide and try again.

    How do I get my iPhone to recognize my new Linksys router.

    passwords are case sensitive, so the problem is possibly just that you have capitals in the password and these are not specifies when entering the password into the iPhone

    Cannot connect second wireless computer

    Check your router settings and the password in there. Make sure the password you are entering is EXACTLY the same. It is case sensitive. For example:
    597E5577 is not the same as 597e5577. Also check for a space in the beginning or end of the password. In most routers there is an option to display characters instead of the **** it normally shows.

    How to access this kind of brand of router? its my project in school can you help me..who is the inventor of this brand?

    Linksys, is a brand of home and small office networking products now produced by Cisco Systems, though once a separate company founded in 1995 before being acquired by Cisco in 2003. There is a full history on Wiki (here)

    To access the device, the computer must be connected to the router with an ethernet cable (not over WiFi.) Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer. Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter]. A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.

    If you forgot the router's password you need to reset the router. For instructions, click here.

    Good luck and thank you for using FixYa! We would sure appreciate a 4 "thumbs-up" rating for this answer. Happy holidays!

    I set up a home wi-fi network and have changed lap tops. I don't remember my password. How do I set up a new password. Linksys WRT160N V3

    There are several things you can do, both of which require you to plug your laptop into the router directly via Ethernet cable. These instructions are for a majority of Linksys Wireless Routers, but may work on others.
    1. Assuming you have not changed the internal IP address of the router, plug the ethernet cable from the port on your computer to the LAN port on your router (most notably the ones labeled 1-4).
    2. Once you are connected, open a web browser and type in and press enter.
    3. If your IP address is still default it will ask you for your user name and password. The default is username: admin and password: admin. If the password doesn't work use password as the password.
    4. Once you get "inside" your router go to wireless tab and then to wireless security. There you should see the wireless password in plain text. Copy this down and disconnect from the router.
    5. If you had to disconnect your modem from your router, connect the modem back to the WAN port (not the 1-4) on the back of the router.
    6. Turn on your wi-fi on your laptop and search for your SSID (network name).
    7. Click on the network name and it will prompt you for a password. Use the password that you have written down in the previous steps and you should connect.
    If you cannot connect and you are sure you have written down the password and entered it correctly, do a reboot of the modem and router in this order.
    1. Unplug router then unplug modem
    2. Wait 30 seconds
    3. Plug MODEM back in only and wait for all lights to become solid (except the Activity light).
    4. Plug the router back in and wait for all lights to light
    5. Try to connect again.

    Good Luck!

    Cannot connect ipod touch to linksys router

    Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to a port on the router.
    Access the router's built-in web-interface, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", to configure your wireless network,
    and pick an SSID and pick a password.

    Then, after restarting the router, enable the wireless networking on your iPod Touch, and it should find your SSID. Enter your password, and you will get connected.

    I have a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router and want to connect it to, the only computer in the houuse, my laptop. How do I make a wireless connection for the laptop? It is picking up the router's signal,...

    You need to make sure your router is set up correctly, as well as your internet connection, whether it's cable modem or DSL or whatever.

    First of all, what kind of internet access do you have?

    Forgot network password

    Hello...if you need to retrieve your network key, eg to connect a new laptop to the internet, this can be found within your router settings.

    Here's a rough guide:

    1. Type your router IP address, eg or whatever is correct for your model, into a web browser address bar

    2. Enter your router username and/or password at the prompt. The defaults for Linksys are username: (left blank) and password: admin : but if you have set a router password/username, please enter these.

    3. In the router user interface, go to the section headed Wireless Security, or similar. Every router is different, so you may have to hunt around a little. Key words to look for are Security, Wireless Settings, Encryption, WPA, (or WEP).

    Your network key will be somewhere here. It might be labelled PSK, pre-shared key, WPA or WEP key, WPA-PSK, network key, WPA shared key, passphrase etc – but that’s the one you need.

    For more details, you could pick up a manual from the Linksys site or view the help pages; otherwise, please come back to Fixya with your model number, and let us know how we can help. Good luck

    If you are using WEP encryption there may be a key you need to enter in order to connect. This will be a long string of letters and numbers. You can find this by looking in the admin of the router under wireless security. I'm sure it's not asking for the admin password or something easy and small. It'll be asking for the wep key.
