To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of therouter with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to beconfigured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in allthe laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings.Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.

The password may be on a sticker on your wireless router. Unless it as changed from the default password, then you'll have to go to the manufacturers website and find the factory reset instructions for your router.

I cant download anything to my kindle it want connect to my Bluetooth I'm getting so frustrated plz help me. I have reset to factory twice


A kindle doesn't use bluetooth, it uses WiFi. They are two different things. In order to use WiFi you need a wireless router. If you are having trouble connecting to a wireless router make sure you enter the password in your kindle in the correct case since the passwords are case sensitive.

My Kobo Arc 32, asked for a password, when I tried to try the WiFi. I don't remember setting a password. So, now it's asking for an guest password.


It is not the Kobo that has set the password, rather the router for the wifi that you are trying to connect to. You just need to know the password for the router to let you connect. If a router has no wifi password, it is considered unsecured and ANYONE can access it. So most all routers use password protection. If it is YOUR wifi system, and you no longer know the password, you can change it if you access the router setup for wireless and change the password. Be advised, however, that all devices that connect to the wifi will need to change their passwords as well or not be connected. If it is not your wifi you are trying to connect to, then you need to obtain the wifi password from that wifi system's administrator.

You must have a wireless router, connected to the internet. then you have to setup the router and the wireless connection. Don't forget to setup a password protected connection with WEP2, or else someone else can use your connection and consume your data plan.

I cant hook up too wifi i forgot my netgear password help


Go into the manual, and reset your net gear router. There is a procedure for (almost) every router, to reset it. Then you can reinstall the new security with a new password. You don't need a password, because it is an hardware action of something. Be aware all things that were connected, have to be connected again with the new settings.
