Question about Arris Wireless G Broadband Router (wr850g)

1 Answer

I had to have my computer rebuild, and now I don't know how to get it to work with my wireless network again. I don't remember the password I used, and would be happy to be able to connect with the wireless without even needing password. Eveything is working fine through the ethernet cable, but I'd love to get it to work wireless again. I'm not good with computers so I hope there will be a simple for me to go wireless again, since I am paying for wireless internet service. Can you help me? Karlene

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 am trying to put a c6380 printer into a wireless network, but it requires a WPA value, what would this value be, and where can I find it?


The WPA is the password you used to set up your router, typically a number or word or combination of the two. It will be the same that your computer uses to get on the wireless. If you don't remember what it is you'll have to reset your router and start again setting it up for both the computers and the printer. Make sure to write the new password down so you don't forget it. Best to write it on a piece of tape and put it on the router itself :)

If you are trying to connect to the wireless from this said PC and you do not remember the wireless password, you will have to reset the router and set it up again. This time, write down the password in a safe place, or use something you know you will not forget... Drivers license number, License plate number..... something.

I don't remember my network key,so I cannot use it


Try to connect you computer with an Ethernet cord. If the Internet is working check the default gateway of the computer by typing "ipconfig" on the command prompt. Type the default gateway on the address bar. There you will see the login page for your wireless router. Check the default username and password from the router's manual and enter it. If it accept the user name and password, look for the wireless settings, password should be seen there. If not create a new one. If default user name and password doesn't work reset the router. There should be a reset button or pinhole on the back of the router. Press and hold it for 10seconds. Try again typing the default gateway on the address bar then re enter the default user name and password. If it work your router now do not have a network key (unsecured). You can create a new network key on the router's configuration page.

I have a new ipad and it is not picking up the wireless router even though it shows full strength.


When you select the connection on the Wireless Network Scanning. Turn it OFF and ON again.

If it shows on the network and is connected.

Just click on it and then on FORGET DEVICE.

Rescan... by ON and OFF again.

Try to put the correct password for router access.
It is probably an incorrect password for granting access to the wireless network.

If it shows on other computers and the network is up and working. You should have no problem.

If the Ipad is not detecting the router, then the problem is on how the network is set up.

You will then have to work with the router settings.

Hope it helps.

God Bless You!!

The belkin rounter of my dad's laptop was installed without password setting. i tried to set it up on 192.168.2.1 configuration page. i was notified that the rounter will restart again itself...thereafter...


If you can still remember the password that you entered on the configuration page, follow the steps below:
1. In the lower right corner of your screen (near the time and date), right click on the wireless network connection icon, then select view available wireless networks. Or, if your wireless adapter has its own wireless utility, you should see that in the lower right corner of your screen.
2. You should see the router's wireless network name (SSID). By default, the SSID is "belkin54g". Select the SSID and it will prompt you for the network key.
3. The network key is the password that you entered on the router configuration page.

If you cannot remember the password that you entered, follow the steps below.
a. Connect your computer to the router using an ethernet cable.
b. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.2.1 in the address bar.
c. Go to Wireless -> Security. Copy the network key.
d. Then follow steps 1-4 above.

For the MAC computer:
1. From the Airport menu, select the SSID.
4. When asked for a password, enter the network key that you entered on the router.

I hope this helps!

I don not remember my password


Are you looking for the wireless password or the
password of the router?
If you want the password of the router, then try
the default password of the router. If the default
password doesn't work then you will need to reset
the router and reconfigure the router.
If you are looking for the wireless network
password, then 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. Or any
other computer which is able to go online using
the router. Check the IP address on that computer.
open the set up page of the router. Set up page of
the router is the page where you will find all the
settings of the router. under the wireless section
you will find the wireless network password

and wireless network.
