Lost installer/set up driver linksys model wrk54G


You don't need the disk. You should be able to log-in to the web interface of the router at this URL: http://192.168.0.1/

If you don't remember the password, you'll have to reset the router to factory defaults and then log-in with password "admin".

I have lost the security code and have a new laptop, how do i set it up to work


Hi!

If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router.
Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.

If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command
ipconfig /all

it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.

If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.

Hope it helped,

Bogdan

I have installed 7ultimate and cant access my wi-fi .i have disk but it wont let me use my password says dos nt match. pressed reset to no avail


Make sure that the wifi security that you used on your router matches that of the security you are trying to setup on your new Windows 7 Ultimate box. If the security doesn't match up, it will tell you that your passwords don't match as well.

I dont know how to set up the nintendo wi-fi connection


  1. At the Setup screen, tap "Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings."

  2. Tap "Connection 1 None."
    emptyconnections.jpg (Don't see "None" for Connection 1? To ensure any existing settings don't interfere with getting connected, tap the button, then choose "Clear Settings.")
  3. Click on "Search for an Access Point."

  4. The Nintendo DS will search for any wireless networks within range. Once it is finished searching, it will display the names of all the wireless networks it finds.


Once you have done this you may find next to your wi-fi, a lock this is what they mean:

  1. Tap on your network name to select it.

  1. Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes." The Nintendo DS will run a connection test with your wireless router.
  • The connection test was successful - Your Nintendo DS is now connected online and you can enjoy the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection features of the game!
  • The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.
    • Error Code 51300: This means the security code or network name entered into the Nintendo DS is not the same one the router is set to. To reach your connection settings, click "back" on the error code screen. Make sure to pay extra attention to the security key you find in your router's settings and enter it exactly as it appears (the key is case sensitive).
    • All other error codes: Try our error code lookup where we have detailed information on many common error codes.

The Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite are not compatible with WPA security. If you would still like to connect your Nintendo DS online, you will need to either change your router's security to WEP, or disable security entirely. Please note that any changes you make will affect other devices that connect wirelessly to your router.

Need to set up my router (Belkin N Wireless Router) but cant find the disk that came with it. how do I go about getting it set up so I have wireless internet. Thanks for your help


1. Hold the reset button for 7 seconds when the router is powered to reset the router back to factory default.
2. Connect your computer to this router's ethernet port, type 192.168.2.1 on your browser's address bar then hit "enter".
3. You should see the Admin login page of this router, the default password is blank, it means you don't type anything onto the password field, just click "Login"
4. Make some necessary change, such as wireless keys, remember using WPA2 for security, not WEP.

Hope this help.

Firewall/security


Most in home routers come with a disk to install ( more often than not norton ), If it didnt come with a disk you should go into the setting control of the router by typing in the ip adress in your IE bar, and clicking on the tab of security/firewall and putting them to the correct specifications. If that still fails for you, I would suggest going to the web and downloading a new driver for the router. Hope it helps!
