Hello

You can reset your router to factory detault settings by pressing the reset putton on the router for atleast 30 secods.

after this you will have to reconfigure your wireless security.

There is no simple way to recover the password from your pc
I would suggest typeing or printing the details when you have resetup your router.

If you have any questions I will gladly answer them.


Thankyou,
Ekse

My daugher recently hooked up her router to my computer but she somehow has lost the disk and manual and does not know how to password protect my network. Any help would be appreciated Thanks Linda


hey,

Login to the routers home page (details under neath or behind the router). Once you login, go to wireless--> settings or wireless security page and then choose WPA2 or WPA PSK and enter the password and save the changes. After save, you will need to re-establish the connection to your laptop and you will be prompted for a password on the computer.

Cheers!!!

HOW DO I SET UP NETGEAR WIRELESS G-ROUTER FOR MY COMPAQ PRESARIO NOTEBOOK PC. I HAVE NORTON ANTI-VIRUS INSTALLED ON MY HP PAVILION. HOW DO I GET IT TO INSTALL ON MY NOTEBOOK PC?


To set up the router, you connect directly to the router with a network cable, log into the router using your Internet browser, to a code like 192.168.0.1, or similar. I suggest that you use the wizard, but be sure to change: Wireless security of WEP and access code of your 10 digit home or cell phone#, change system ID to something you recognize, change router access password AND RECORD IT, change wireless channel to 11 and avoid conflict with landline cordless phones.

With routers, you have to SAVE on each page or loose settings.

Then install the router, and look for it in the wireless connections list on your laptop. Give the access password and you should be good to go. The desktop usually connects via network cable.

I have lost the password for my LIVEBOX C640 router on orange. I am connecting a new NETBOOK but it keeps asking for the password. My original laptop still operates on the router wireless


If you have forgotten your wireless security password then you need to add new password because it is saved in * and # format so you need to add new code.
You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It isyour password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My password is "wrong' whenever I try to connect on my laptop


That's firmware problem on your router. Try to download the latest firmware for you router from www.linksys.com/download then load the latest firmware. After successfully updated the firmware, you need to hard reset the router by pressing the reset button for 20 seconds then unplug the power for 10 seconds and plug it back in. You will need to reconfigure the wireless settings.

I can tell that your network topology is not the most complicated ever.So u ve got 3 terminals,1 desktop pc and 2 laptop.Simple,reset your zyxel(from the button on the back) and reconfigure the Local area interface connection(ip & subnet mask for the zyxel),reconfigure your internet connection,(WAN zyxel interface) in case the zyxel is your Internet gateway too.Third,make sure NAT & Firewall are up and running(usually are by default) Finally,reconfigure the WiFi interface with the correct SSID name & WEP key or whatever security you prefer.Write down the security pass for your wireless and you are done.Good Luck.
