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.

Cant connect to d-link DIR-615 wirelessly, can someone help me?


What is the operating system on your laptop?
Can you access the Internet if you connect the computer to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If the wired connection is working then it must be the problem with the wireless network.
If the wired connection is also not working then you may need to reset and reconfigure the router.
If only wireless is not working then you can try creating a new wireless network and then connect your laptop to the new wireless netwok.
I can suggest you a website which may help you for Home network connection.

I got a new laptop and i have wireless internet but when i tried to connect my new laptop to it it said i need a password and i cant figure it out


The password is the encryption key in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the laptop to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer/laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

My new laptop with Windows7 OS cannot connect either wireless or direct cable to DLInk DI624. I have tried turning off my firewall but still same problem persist. The router is working fine with my old pc...


Adding a wired computer or device to the network.

If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you are adding a desktop or any other device to the router which will always be connected to the router with the Ethernet cable, then in this case you don't need to do anything.
You can just connect the Ethernet cable between the router and the computer and it should work.
If you are not able to go online even when it is connected properly then check IP address of the computer.

Adding a wireless computer or device to the network.

If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you want to add a new wireless device ( laptop or any other wireless device) to the network, then you should know all the wireless settings of the router. What wireless settings do you need to know ?
You should know the wireless network name ( SSID ), wireless channel and the wireless security password
( network key ). Once you get all the wireless settings of the router , you will need to connect to the wireless network on the computer. when you try to connect to the network , you will see your wireless network in the list. You just need to select your network and connect to it. If it is secured then you will need to enter the network key and you will be able to go online.
To check the wireless settings of the router , you will need to access the router set up page. On the set up page you will find all the wireless settings of the router.

I have a dell inspiron1300 laptop pc.This problem has just developed.When I turn on it won't connect to the internet(wireless connection) until I click ''repair'' on the small connection icon at the bottom...


This can happen when both the wireless router and the laptop are powered up together. The laptop boots up before the wireless router can issue the laptop with an IP address. When you click Repair the LAN card requests a new IP address from the router and then the laptop can connect to the Internet.

I get this problem sometimes and then I have to click Repair.

Try leaving the wireless router powered up or power up the wireless router first. I suggest rebooting the wireless router approx. once a week, the wireless router will then be issued with a new IP address from your ISP, this makes it difficult for hackers to hack into your wireless router/network.

Need help with Wifi Connection with COMPAQ EVO N610C LAPTOP


First you will need a router which will enable you to create a wireless network for your internet connection. I recommend, if you're purchasing online, to use Tigerdirect. Then you would need a USB wireless adapter for your laptop which will enable it to communicate with the wireless router and establish an internet connection.
Below are some links for the most affordable and best rated products you need.

Cannot connect new laptop to wireless network. Belkin Wireless N


The wireless settings on the laptop and the router should match. To check the settings on the router you need to access the setup page by typing 192.168.2.1 in a web browser's address bar.

By default the password is blank.

Click the Wireless tab. And take note of the SSID or wireless network name.

Go to Security, then Wireless. If the wireless security is enabled, copy the network key or security key.

On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

MN520 adaptor will not see my new Netgear WGR614 wireless router


The only protocol your older wireless adapter will connect to is 802.11b. I would say you will need to get another wireless adapter for the older computer. I would look at your router specification to see if it supports 802.11b, I am thinking it probably doesn't and that is why it cannot see the network. I will send a link to your cards specifications.

I cant connect to wireless on my brand new laptop :(


you need to make sure that your laptop has a wireless card in it and if it's working properly. if it has a wireless card already, the wireless card should automatically detect your wireless router (the wireless icon is usually located at the bottom right hand corner of your screen) and you just need to connect using the correct wireless settings (ssid and wireless security).you need to also check if the wireless capability of the router is enabled. make sure to check if the wireless light on the router is on.

here are the steps on how to check the wireless settings of the router

- open a web browser using a computer connected to the router via cable. enter http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar.
- it will prompt you to enter a username and password, use "admin"
- it will now promt you with your router's screen, go to the wireless section
- check the wireless settings like the wireless name/ssid that are listed there since that would be settings that you need to use on your laptop (note: you can change the wireless name/ssid to something that you can remember easily and just saev the settings)
- check also the wireless security if it's enabled

hope this'll help you

ciao!

Add additional laptop on wireless router


i assume that you want to connect the new laptop wirelessly to the router. if so, all you need to do is connect the new laptop to the wireless signal of your your router.
follow the steps below if you don't know your router's wireless settings.

- access the router's setup page by typing http://192.168.1.1 (which is the default ip address of the routre), then you will be prompted with a log in screen. leave the username blank and type "admin" on the password filed
- you will now be prompted with a linksys screen. if you are using the latest firmware of the router, there would be a "wireless" tab, click on that tab and it'll show you the wireless settings (i.e. ssid, wireless channel etc) and under the "wireless" tab is a subtab that'll say "wireless security" and it'll provide you your wireless password if you have enabled one. but if you are using the old firmware, the wireless settings would be located on the middle part of the setup tab
- if you have all the wireless settings needed, you just need to connect your laptop using those settings. you just need to make sure that the wireless capability of your laptop is enabled

hope this'll help you but if you still encounters any problem just ask me and kindly provide the wireless adapter being used and the OS of your laptop.

ciao!
