Question about Linksys Computers & Internet
You don't have to reprogram the router after an internet outage.
You just need to unplug it, wait 15 sec, and plug it back in.
I would suggest this procedure though to make sure everything syncs up
turn everything off...computers, modem, router etc.
oiwer the modem up first. wait 1 minute, or until the lights settle down.
power up the router.
again wait a minute or until the lights settle.
power up the computer
You should now have internet again.

Tips for a great answer:
You do not have to use the cd.
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.

Perform a Linksys reset:
The easiest method of resetting your Linksys router's password is to reset your router back to the default factory settings. This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password "admin", in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to "admin" on some of the newer Linksys router models).
You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then:
