Problem with Setup Wizard for Linksys 2.4 GHz Wireless-G Broadband Router

I am having problem with setup wizard for Linksys 2.4 GHz Wireless-G Broadband Router. According to the user guide, setup wizard shows initial Welcome screen and you can click on Next button if you want to proceed with the Setup Wizard after choosing the language that you want. After that u will see the following Welcome screen that has "Click here to Start" button to proceed.

But my problem is that it skips the initial welcome screen, and show the second page which has no "click here to start" button to continue.

Anyone pls advise me how to set it up..

Since you're having problem in setting this router up, the best to way to set it up is by doing a mnual configuration and you dont need to use the setup CD that came with it, I'm suggesting you to call the linksys tech support and they will walk you through on the manual setup it will only take about 10 minutes this is the number 800-3267114.

Hope that helps.........

I have forgotten the password to my wireless router network (linksys wireless-G broadband router, 2.4 GHz). How can I access in order to add an additional computer to my wireless system?


Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer (desktop/laptop) to one of the "wired' ports on the router.

Connect to the built-in web-server "inside" the router.

Run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", to configure the wireless capabilities of the router; assign an SSID, and assign a password for the wireless network.

I'm having problems not only with registration but also connecting the router.


Hi,
Kindly follow the below steps to setup your router, this will help
LinkSys Router Setup Physical Setup of a LinkSys Router Each model of LinkSys router will differ slightly, but the general design is similar across all models. Therefore, the setup is similar across all models.
  1. Attach the antennas to the router (if your LinkSys router support wireless)d
  2. Plug the Ethernet cable from your broadband Internet provider into the port labeled "Internet"
  3. Plug another Ethernet cable into one of the available ports
  4. Plug the other end of that same cable into an Ethernet port on your PC
LinkSys Router Configuration LinkSys routers now ship with a Setup Wizard which is intended to simplfy basic configuration tasks.
We do not recommend the LinkSys Setup Wizard for two reasons:
  1. The Setup Wizard is not significantly easier that the regular configuration menus
  2. If you use the Setup Wizard, you will end up learning two interfaces for your LikSys router instead of just one
Instead, we recommend simply starting your web browser and jumping into the configuration.
Once your web browser is open, go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password.

Logging in to a LinkSys Router
The username is either blank or "admin" and the default password is "admin".
Once you are past the login screen, you are able to access (and change) a plethora of configuration options for your router.
Don't be worried by the enormous number and variety of options, your LinkSys router ships with default settings that enable it to work right out of the box in most environments.
From here the configuration options that you choose are largely up to your own personal preference.
If this is a wireless router, we recommend that you consider setting an SSID to identify the router as your own and configuring WEP to encrypt your wireless traffic.

Let me know if this will help

Regards

I can provide you more on Linksys router as i work on them :)

All the best

Setup wizard doesn't locate wireless router.


Any old ethernet cable should be fine. The setup disc is generally used only for initial setup to establish communications between router and pc, and to also configure your internet providers settings. You can access your router from your pc by going to http://192.168.1.1 and you can change settings in the router from there instead of using setup disc. If you insist on using the setup wizard disc you usually have to set your computer's ip address to a specific number and possibly reset router to default state (see manual or http://www.linksys.com).

I ended up loading the router setup cd onto another laptop, and it worked fine. I still don't know why the first laptop had the error code, but they now both, work perfectly fine. Thanks, anyway.

Router cannot connect on internet at setup wizard


Hi pag Smartbro ang gamit mo hindi mo pwede gamiting ang setup wizard. Iba kasi ang paraan ng connection sa SMartBro. Mahirap explain it would be best if you call Linksys Philippine support since there are so many ways to connect Smartbro to a Linksys router. The number is 1-800-1-114-1695 toll free. or kung gusto mo sa Yahoo ID ko nalang mastersaintx message mo ko sa umaga.

My setup disc is cracked and I need to install the software onto my computer.


Hi!

As far as I know, the setup wizard for your router is just to help you configure the internet and wireless connection and it won't install any software at your PC. It just needs you PC to run the setup wizard to do those things. An alternative way is to manually configure it via it's web interface which you can access by opening Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1 at your Address bar. That's also useful when you will configure advance setting at your router.

Hope this helps.
