Hi Megan,

On the back of the router there is a hole, probably marked 'reset'. Press and hold this button for 30 seconds and this should reset the router to factory settings. After doing this, unplug the power from the router and your modem. Plug in the modem first - wait one minute. Now plug in the router and hook everything up. Now you can set a new password on the router to prevent unauthorized access.

Please let me know if this doesn't work and I can help further.

Regards,

Joe

Hi, Sounds like your browser setting are messed up. The privicy setting and/or security settings are set too high. Maybe thats why you can't get on FB. If your friend and son where playing a game online they need settings to be changed. Most games are like that. Hope that helps

My Dell 2350 router was working fine and was password protected. I must have messed up the settings because now it is no longer password protected (I can tell because the padlock next to it is now gone.)...


Hey!

Looks like someone pressed the reset button on your router which caused it to go back to it's factory settings that's why you lost the password.

Hope this helps! :D

Hi. This must be the router password that xbox is trying to connect. Your home routers password is basically saved to your xbox logon credentials. If the xbox will connect to another wireless router and sees that the password he knows is not the password that was save inside the console then you will be getting that error message. Solution is type the password of your sons friends router then this will solve the issue.

WRT54G router working fine but need to turn on security.


with the wrt54g you need to open a internet browser and navigate to 192.168.1.1
a security screen will pop up to which the username is "admin" and the password is either "admin or blank, (unless you specified otherwise when running the install.

once in click wireless then security in the sub menu (under the wireless link you just clicked) then fill in the boxes

hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router


you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work
