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!!!

Why have I lost my wireless connection? I have a wireless and a landline router. I had set up wireless on my laptop but not on my desktop. Now I can't get wireless on the laptop


Use your desktop to connect to the router by typing 192.168.0.1 into the internet explorer address bar. Enter user name and password for your router....if you dont know type you router and modeel name into google it will be there somewhere. Now click on wireless and disable security and see if laptop connects now. Back under security create a new password and connect with this now on laptop

My laptop is hooked up to the router - I bought an adapter for my desktop - the two will work together, however now my sons can't get onto the internet with their iphones - is there a password? my service...


they should be able to. if your home network is secure it will require a password. there will most likely be an icon of a lock by the home network you choose. if not then your iphones can not accept the signal your router is putting out.
If that is the case you will need to go through the steps to change it so you can.

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.
