Go into the admin portion of the router by typing the ip address in internet explorer. By default your router should by http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1

the default user id is admin

the default password is linksys or admin

go to the wireless section set the signal for mixed and assign an ID that your laptops can recognize when scanning.

By default your channel id should be 6. If the notebooks aren't communicating set the channel id to 6 on the network cards.

Once thats connected then you can work on your wep encyption.

Linksys will not allow any admin work on their routers performed unless a computer is on a wired connection. Only the wired computer can do the admin work.

The signal from my router to my Samsung blu ray is not strong enough


There are several things you need to consider with wireless connection:
Distance - How far is the Netgear router from the Samsung Blu ray? Try changing the wireless channel on the Netgear router that can help boost the signal. Wireless Security- Have you enabled wireless security on the router? Is it WEP or WPA? Make sure that you input the wireless security key on the Blu Ray player and that you have setup wireless settings correctly.Number of wireless devices - Check the number of wireless devices(laptops, desktops, pda's, etc) connecting to the router as it also weakens the signal. And if wireless security is not enabled on your Netgear router, there's a chance that your neighbor might be connecting to your router via wireless.
You can also test how strong the signal is by placing a wireless laptop on the same location where the blu ray player is. If the laptop gets a weak signal as well, you can try placing the router closer to the blu ray player.

I had to purchase a new router because I ruined the one my system was connected to. I reconnected the new one the same as the old but now my laptop will not connect, it says it has no internet...


Is the laptop connecting wirelessly? If so, you need to open the network connection, search for access point, and then connect to the new wireless. If the laptop is connecting via Ethernet cable, then the router is not configured to work with your provider. Consult the manual for the new router and call your providers tech support for help configuring the new router.

Best, Jim

My Dell laptop does not connect easily to d-link WBR 2310 router


2 wireless laptops are connecting. that means the router must be working properly. Only 1 laptop is not connecting.
Try to change the wireless channel on the router.
For this you will need to open the set up page of the router.
Is there any computer connected to the router ? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router and open the set up page. Under wireless settings try to change the wireless channel on the router and see if that works.

WIFI not working with Linksys wireless-g broadband router/Comcast


Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.

Wgr614 wireless router will not connect


This makes me think that the wireless in either the router or the laptop has failed. Will the laptop connect ok if at another hot spot? if so, then you may have a problem with the router. If the laptop will not connect when somewhere else, then the wireless in the laptop has a problem. that could be a problem with the internal wireless card, or a driver file corrupted. Check the wireless card through the device manager to see if windows reports it working properly, and make corrections there as may be necessary. If windows reports all is ok, you may need a new card.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!
