How to log in to router


Open an internet browser, in the address area type in 192.168.0.1 (this is the normal address used by the router). Once the router access screen appears try usinfg the factory default login USER = ADMIN, PASSWORD = MOTOROLA.

If this does not work you can try using the reset button on the rear of the router to reset it's setting to factory default settings and try the above method again.

NOTE: If you are unsure about anything you can also try asking your ISP how to access the router settings. (If you received the router from an ISP). Otherwise use the manual at this internet location for more information. http://www.midcocomm.com/_files/files/SBG6580.pdf

I'm using windows 7 with a wireless rca by thompson dcw725 router. my desktop is wired into it, but i got a laptop that connects wireless, but has no internet access, says limited connectivity. Any ideas...


First of all, you need to check if the laptop is correctly connectedto the router.
try the following steps to see if you are effectively connected to the router :

1. Open the command prompt on your desktop computer (Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command prompt OR Windows Key+R -> type cmd).
2. Type ipconfig /all and then note down the value given for Default Gateway
3. Repeat the first two steps on the laptop and compare the values of Default Gateway.

If the values are different, then it means the laptop is not correctly connected to the router.
You will have to delete the Wireless network configuration (In the Network and Sharing Center, you will find it in "Manage Wireless Networks").Then start the wizard for connecting to a wireless network. Be sure that you enter the network security key correctly.

If the default gateway values are correct, check the firewall/antivirus settings on your laptop. If you cannot or don't know where to look, deactivate them completely and try again.
You may also need to check the parental control settings and your web browser settings (notably if it is in offline mode).

Last but not least, on the laptop, delete all broadband connections and/or dial-up connections that are present (in the Network and Sharing Center, go to "Change adapter settings" to find any broadband or dial-up connections).

I need to find my att dsl internet security key to sign on wireless my moden is a 2wire 2701hg


Open INTERNET EXPLORER and. (In the URL address field), enter the IP address for your wireless router ( the DEFAULT GATEWAY. This information should be contained in your router's manual. If you cannot find it, enter "198.168.1.1" as the address. This is usually the default IP address for most routers.do not type "www" just the number
Enter the username and password for your router. This should also be supplied in the router's manual. If you don't have this information, go to routerpasswords.com and find the brand and model of your router. This site lists the default login information for most wireless routers you can try "ADMIN" for user name and "PASSWORD" for passsword.
You should now be able to see your wireless router settings. You can configure your network ports, as well as SSID (wireless network name) and passwords.aka security key
?

If this was helpful, please indicate so, if not -comment back so we can dig further to resolve this.

Where do i find the wep key if every ip adress i type wont work?????????????????????????????????????????????? HELP!!!!!!!!!


Logon to the computer with the wireless router connected to the modem. Use the software that came with your router to select the Wireless setup. You will see the Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) key that you must use on all computers using the wireless connection. If the software is not installed you could access the firmware from Internet Explorer. If you do not know the router address you can find it by the next steps.
1. Select Run from the Start menu.
2. Type CMD and press Enter.
3. Type IPCONFIG /ALL and press Enter.
4. Note the Default Gateway on a piece of paper.
Open Internet Explorer and type the Default Gateway in the Internet Explorer address bar (example: 192.168.0.1). You may have to type a username and password to access the firmware settings. You should find the password listed in your manual, possibly on the bottom or back of the router. Once you are in the router firmware find the wireless settings so you can see your WEP key and note that value on a piece of paper. Exit internet explorer to save your settings and again try to scan for wireless networks on other computers. Select your router and type in the WEP key and you should be wired.

Cannot access my router


Connect an Ethernet cable between your computer and the router.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD and press ENTER
Type IPCONFIG and press ENTER
Look for a line of output like:

Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 241.683.326.41

Start Internet Explorer
Type http://241.683.326.41
to access the web-server "inside" your router,
where '241.683.326.41' is the same IP-address as in that line of output.

You are now accessing your router.

New Modem with a router for wireless Laptop


Some routers have a kind of built in firewall. You need to let the router/modem that it is okay for it to let this information pass through it. Here are your instructions
Overview

Follow the steps in this chapter and use the Gateway’s web-based utility to configure the Gateway. This chapter
will describe each web page in the Utility and each page’s key functions. The utility can be accessed via your web
browser through use of a computer connected to the Gateway. For a basic network setup, most users only have to
use the following screens of the Utility:

• Setup. On the Setup screen, enter the settings provided by your ISP.

• Security. Click the Administration tab and then the Security tab. The Gateway’s default username and
password is admin. To secure the Gateway, change the Password from its default.

There are seven main tabs: Setup, Wireless, Security, Access Restrictions, Applications & Gaming, Administration,
and Status. Additional tabs will be available after you click one of the main tabs.
Setup

• Setup. Enter the Internet connection settings on this screen.
Wireless

• Basic Wireless Settings. You can choose your wireless network settings on this screen.

• Wireless Security. This screen allows you to choose your wireless security mode.

• Wireless Network Access. This screen displays your wireless network access list.

• Advanced Wireless Settings. On this screen you can access the advanced wireless features.

• WDS. The wireless distribution system feature is accessed on this screen.
Security

• Firewall. This screen contains filters and the Block WAN Requests feature. Filters block specific internal users
from accessing the Internet and block anonymous Internet requests.

• VPN Passthrough. To enable or disable IPSec and/or PPTP Passthrough, use this screen.

If the Internet light is off it means you are not either authenticated at your provider or your configurations are wrong on the modem. If you go to your command prompt and type ipconfig and check your IP address and your default gateway. The IP address on your default gateway would be your router put that IP address on your browser and should be able to see your modem setting and any error messages that could help resolve your issue

Problems setting up Belkin wireless G+ mimo modem router/usb network adapter


It sounds like the router address is wrong or you are not connected to the network.. Guessing you are using Windows XP or Vista. Go to the DOS prompt (http://www.computerhope.com/issues/chdos.htm) then type ipconfig. This will bring up details on your network (see example below).

IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.4
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1


You should see default gateway address which is the address of your router ie 192.168.2.1 in your example. If this is not shown you have not connected to your router properly. If it shows a different address use the address shown to try and access your router. HTH
