Unplug all LAN cables from the router.
Unplug the router power cord connector from the back of the device.
Using a paper clip or something similar that will fit into the reset hole, press continue to hold the reset button, then carefully reinsert the power cord, making sure not to release the reset button in the process.
Continue to hold the reset button in for at least 15 seconds after inserting the power cord, then release it. After about 10-25 seconds the router will boot and it will be set back to the original factory default settings.

By default the password on the router is left blank, and the default IP address is 192.168.2.1

I need to put a password on my linksys router but the default ip address wont come up on the screen help?


The default IP address is 192.168.1.1. If you are unable to connect to the router, it is because someone has changed it from default to something else, or there is an IP address conflict (maybe your cable or DSL modem has the same address?)

To restore the default IP address, locate and press the RED reset button on the rear of the router for 5 seconds. All the settings will be returned to factory defaults. You should be able to click on 192.168.1.1 to go to the set up page. Here, you should change the username, password, SSID and re-enter / enable settings for your particular network and of course, secure the wifi.

Linksys / Cisco maintains a support page for your router. On it, you can find links to FAQs, Tech Support, Live Chat, firmware, manuals, etc. This may be the fastest, most direct method to get answers to your questions.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Hi, could you help me connect to default gateway when setting up a router. I tried connecting to http://192.168.2.1 but doesn't work. thanks.


Hello! Try to configure your network card`s IP address to 192.168.2.x (x = 2-255) and make sure the router is reseted to its defaults. To do this go to Control Panel > Network and Sharing > Change adapter settings and then right click on your network card > Properties, highlight IPv4 and click Properties. You just need to enter the IP and the Subnet Mask. After you`re done configuring the router change everything back to defaults.

My default IP ADRESS is192.168.1.1, and am trying to change my router password for wireless connection


If you ever lose your settings or if your settings are changed and the router is not functioning properly, you can come to this area to restore your saved settings from the backup file you created. Click Browse to locate the backup settings file you previously created. When you have located it, click Restore and the settings saved within this file will be applied to the router. If you did not create a backup file, you may need to restore the factory default settings.
device3.gif Factory Settings If you ever want to erase all personal settings of your router, come to this area and click Reload to restore the factory default settings. All the current settings will be lost. If you change the router's configuration and it stops functioning properly you can reload the factory settings to fix it.
device3.gif The other method to restore the factory default settings is to press in and hold the RESET button on the Wireless MAXg Router for between five and ten seconds. You will lose all of your personal settings if you restore the factory default settings. You might need to do this if you are unable to access the Web User Interface or have forgotten your password.

Unable to connect with dlink300 router


You must configure first its settings both on your network card and router. See you manual.

First you must connect your internet directly to the computer then get its DNS settings, jot it down. Then connect the router lanport1 to lan card port of your computer using LAN cable. Under lan properties goto TCP/IP settings input the default IPaddress 192.168.0.1 of the router then its subnet mask commonly 255.255.255.0, the router's default gateway, input the DNS settings of your ISP 2 of the set.

Then goto default router's utility web. Open internet explorer, key in router's ip add 192.168.0.1 you should go to router's configuration log in user = admin, pass = just hit enter. Set your time and date then save. You could also test its connection by pinging the IP address of router. on windows DOS. Type ping 192.168.0.1 you should get 4 lines.


If everything is set. Connect the internet cable(UTP/LAN cable) to its WAN port of the router then test to browse the internet. If not then change the DNS settings with the remaining set (on Lan setting).

If I miss something just leave a comment.

Portable devices recognize router but cannot connect


Try to change the wireless security to WPA-PSK(TKIP) or WEP.

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

From the above configuration, please try to connect your portable device to the wireless settings of your Netgear router.

Cannot log on to dwl2000ap


If the SSID changed to the default then you know that the router reset to the default settings and you should set your computer to automatically get its IP address via DHCP. I always set up my routers through a Wired connection first, just to setup the router and then go with the wireless. The default for the router should be 192.168.0.1 and subnet 255.255.255.0 . If the computer is set with a static IP address, change it to obtain an IP address automatically or the network card will not bother even looking for an address.
