The IP Address you enter Has to be whatever your DEFAULT GATEWAY is to find it go to START>RUN type CMD in the window and hit OK --this brings you to the command prompt--type MSCONFIG and hit enter-- you will see your default gateway- and thats what you enter into the URL

Linksys sd208 reset


The reset button is usually at the back of the router. If you are unable to locate it you can reset it using a web based set-up page. Make sure you connect your router to a PC using wired connection and perform the following steps:
Step 1:
Launch a web browser like Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
In the Address bar, enter "192.168.1.1" as the router's default IP address then press [Enter]. If this doesn't work or if the IP address of your router has been changed, enter it instead.
Step 3:
Enter "admin" in the Password field then leave the User name blank. If you have set up a User name and Password for your Linksys router before, enter your personalized credentials instead.
QUICK TIP: For Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers, you can enter "http://myrouter.local" on the Address bar to access its web-based setup page.
The router's web-based setup page should now appear from here you can reset the router.

We just got a road runner cable motem, and I had a linksys router before we got the road runner. I have a dsixl, and it's not connecting to the linksys anymore. please help.


Unplug the roadrunner cable modem completely as well as the Linksys. Let them sit for 20 minuets or so and then plug in the roadrunner modem first. Let it power up completely and then connect the linksys via the internet or wan port.

Check for connectivity.

If no internet connection enter the linksys control web page usually at 192.168.1.1 and perform a ip address release/renew on the status page.

If you do not know your admin login for linksys the default is admin with a password of admin. If you are unable to access the router then perform a factory reset on the router.

Make sure the router is powered ON. Then Press+Hold the Reset button of your router for 30secs first. (Reset is found on the back panel of your router, you have to use a pen or a paper clip to press the button) For the LED's if the power blinking that indicates that the router is being reset and then power-cycle the router for only 30secs.

If the Power LED won't blink Press+Hold the Reset Button for 1min and then Power-cycle the router for another 1min. Then check the IP address of your PC then try accessing your router's GUI admin console using a web browser with the address of 192.168.1.1 and use admin as your password.

I recently got a Mac desktop and my Linksys router disk will not open up. Do I need a router that is made for Macs or is there a way to configure the Linksys?


Hi, You are correct. The CD is not compatible with Mac. What you have to do is Configuring the Router Manually using the Web Based Configuration panel.
How to:
  1. Open your Web Browser
  2. Type http://192.168.1.1 in the Address Bar and hit Enter
  3. If you have changed the address somehow you have to enter that (Router's IP - Default Gateway)
  4. Here is a small guide to Fine your routers IP address in case of that you are unable to access
  5. Enter the user name (default user name is blank- means no user name. Just leave it blank), Default password is admin.
  6. Now you can configure the Router using the Menus.
  7. Make sure that you have Saved your settings before Exit the Web Based Setup.
  8. Make sure that you have changed the Default Password.
  • If you can’t access the router’s web-based setup page, please check the following: cable connections, router’s LEDs, IP address, and connectivity.
  • Connecting Devices Together
  • Ensure that you have an Active Internet Connection and connect the modem to the router’s Internet port and the Mac to any of the four Ethernet ports.
  • Checking the Router’s LEDs
  • After connecting your modem and Mac to the router, check the lights on the front panel of the router.
  • Checking the Router’s IP Address
  • To find a Linksys router’s Local IP address, you have to check the IP settings of the Mac
  • Checking the Mac’s Connectivity with the Router
  • Ensure that the Mac is properly connected to the router.
You can download the Manuals from here to learn how to do Advanced, Customized Configurations.
Note: Please select the appropriate Hardware Version.
Thanks for contacting Fixya! Feel free to ask any questions if you face trouble with the setup. Please rate the answer as well!

To check your Linksys wireless router settings, open IE browser and type in the Linksys configuration IP address http://192.168.1.1
and login = admin and the PW = admin (if you didn't change the default password) - The default password should be changes to stop unauthorized access into the Linksys router.
If you cannot get into the Linksys router configuration wirelessly, then you need to connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Linksys router.
Check the DHCP and wireless settings. Take a note of the wireless settings (ie SSID, encryption etc.) and check the wireless card setting in the computer, it needs to have these settings for the wireless/LAN to connect to the Linksys router. The TCP/IP settings on the LAN?wireless cards needs to have Obtain IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.

Remote pc cannot access wireless


You can do a reset on your router. All computers must be must be getting its connection from your router. Your wired computer must be getting an ip address from the router(example is 192.168.1.x). You can then access the router page using your browser by typing the default gateway(example 192.168.x.1). This will take you to the router configuration page. You can set up the wireless network and your wireless network can now support more than 2 wireless computers.
