I have a Linksys wireless router that was given to me. I have the IP address user name etc. Just not sure how to add it


best thing is to reset it and start anew with it:



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).

Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then:

How to re-setup the linksys wireless router


If you did not change the IP address of your router then you can configure one of your computer to use static IP address in the same subnet as the IP address of the router and connect to the router on one of the LAN port. Then you can open the web page of the configuration by using the IP address of the router (on the LAN side) such as 192.168.0.1 (according to the manual or specification you can find about that router on linksys web site). Then you can login and configure the settings. Sometimes they use Admin and blank password as default login in user credential. If you want to restore the factory default, then you just need to press in the reset button which is usually a tiny hole on the back of the router close to the power cord. You can stick a paper clip or something into it and hold it for like 30 seconds and everything will be restored.

Pressing the wireless button, but it does not light


Typically, if your router is both a wired and wirless, then you have to IP into the router, configure the wireless network and put the encryption key on whatever computers are connecting to it.

typically, default IP is 192.168.1.1

Open explorer and type just: 192.168.1.1 into the address bar and it should open a login box. Use the user/password that is the default for your router.

It may be stamped on the bottom of the router along with the IP address i mentioned above, or similar to, in which you should use that one.

Now once you are in, you configure the system manually such as type of network, channel number, passwords and what not.

If it is a linksys it should have an easy setup CD that will do most of the work for you and is self explanitory.

If you still have trouble, please provide us with the Make and model of the router so we can help you better.

Good luck

Your IP address for you linksys router needs to be changed.  More than likely there using the same IP address such as 192.168.0.1.
You have to convert your linksys router to a switch and change the IP address range it uses to on that doesn't conflict with the Verizon router.
10.150.1.1 should work.

How to secure my network with the router


If your using a wireless router set a password key for your router's WPA(Wi-fi Protected Acces) or WEP(wired equivalent privacy). The WPA/WEP key is used to connect a computer to your network. This is to ensure that only allowed computers is connected to your network.

If your using a wired router, check your router configuration if there is an ACL(Access Control List) settings. Set first static IP addressing in your computers then enlist the IP addresses of your computers in your network, and turn off DHCP mode in your router. Now only IP addresses in the ACL settings will be allowed to your network.

I have a new modem: model speedstream 5200, now I can't connect my router: Linskeys model BEFSR41


Your router and DSL modem probably both are set to the same IP address:
192.168.1.1

Change one of them to 192.168.1.2(I'm suggesting the Linksys)
and it should fix the problem and have them both working again.

Once everything is attached you have to reboot everything so your router can assign IP addresses.

If your wireless pciG has a static IP address that is not in the proper range e.g. (if the router is 192.168.0.1 and your desktop is 192.168.15.1 then you can not log into the router, the router has to assign IP addresses in its range of 0.2-0.50)

If your IP address is assigned dynamically, then everything has to be re-booted so the router can assign the address in it's range.
