The wireless settings of the Linksys needs to e configured and the wireless card in the computer needs to be configured with the Linksys wireless router's settings so it can communicate with the Linksys wireless router. To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: - 1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable. 2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address. 3. Enter the router setup, login and password 4. Change the admin password 5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast. 6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). 7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router. 8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings. 9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router. 10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
For you to resolve this problem, you'll need to reset the router. Press and hold the reset button for 5 seconds, and when you are prompted for the user name and password just input "admin" in both fields.
Try connecting your computer to the router after this process.
Connect your computer to one of the LAN port of the router, access the IP address of the router (IP 192.168.1.1), for the connection type choose PPPoE, type the username and password provided, Check the IP address under status (WAN section if the IP address is 0.0.0.0 then click connect)
I have had similar problems with my home wireless connections for years, across several different brands of routers. By far the quickest solution that I've found is to simply reboot the router; either using the command interface from a computer connected via ethernet; or by unplugging it, waiting 30 seconds, and reconnecting the power.
