There should be a reset button on the back of the router. (most have it.) Hold the button for 10, 15, or 30 seconds (depends on router.) until you see that all the lights blink and go off. It SHOULD reset all the settings.

if not make sure you held the button all the way, cause otherwise it'll just do a soft-reset and not bring back the settings.

I forgotten my passwords, need to know how to re-set?


For that you need to secure it with WEP password you can set it with below method. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security then enter new password then save settings and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Tip

How do I set up the wireless network key on my linksys router?


Hi.

This tip applies to any Linksys wireless router.

First you need to access the router control panel , and check wireless settings.

Therouter control panel is accessed connecting a computer to the router.This is done using an Ethernet cable, and entering router IP address in Internet Explorer address bar.

Here the cable:

Here the procedure.

Connect router to computer using a network cable (LAN cable with RJ45 connector).

On computer open Internet explorer and type router IP in the address bar (where you use to typewww.this.that ).The IP address is indicated on router user manual. Ifit has not been changed, 192.168.1.1 is the default for LinkSys brand home broadband routers. Press enter after typing the IP.

Enter router user name and passord. On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer LinkSys routers, both the default usernameand the password are "admin". If that does not work, then defaultsettings had been changed. In that case you will need to reset therouter. See: Reset a LinkSys Router Password.

After entering right ID and password you will open the router control pane as HTML page in Internet Explorer.

In the router control panel choose the wireless setting tab to see or modify the password:

If you do not need to change wireless settings, then write down the encryption key, and set the same key on the laptop. Once the right key is set on the laptop, the connection will start automatically.

If more computersare connecting to this network, then do not reset or change thewireless settings. Simply write down the key on paper and setup thelaptop.

Remember that WAP encryption keys are case sensitive, Wep encryption keys are not.

The simplest encryption to choose is WEP.
WEP means wireless encryption key.

Open the router panel, go to wireless, and find key settings or set your own key.

If you have to set the key:

If you choose WEP 64, then the key that you need to set will be 10 characters key made by numbers and letters from A to F.

Close Internet Explorer to get out of the Linksys control panel.

Regards.

Do you know the password to your WiFi-network? (that is the WPA passphrase)
i you have forgotten the password, you can change it by logging on to your router and settings a new wifi password.
you can find out your routers adress if you go to start - run.. and type in cmd and hit enter there you get a black screen, type ipconfig /all (followed by enter) and look for default gateway (thats the adress to your router)
often http://192.168.0.1

Need wep key


Access the management page from your browser. (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Etc.)

The address is: 192.168.1.1

The default password is admin, leave the username blank

Click on the "Wireless " link

Then click on "Security"

You will see your WEP key there.


If you have forgotten your router passsword, you will need to reset the router.

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).


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

We have forgotten our password to our router - it is a WEP # - can we reset the router??


The router password gets you into the utility program--the WEP password is the SSID allowing you to connect (wirelessly) to the router
Open INTERNET EXPLORER and. (In the URL address field), enter the IP address for your wireless router ( the DEFAULT GATEWAY. This information should be contained in your router's manual. If you cannot find it, enter "198.168.1.1" as the address. This is usually the default IP address for most routers.do not type "www" just the number
Enter the username and password for your router. This should also be supplied in the router's manual. If you don't have this information, go to routerpasswords.com and find the brand and model of your router. This site lists the default login information for most wireless routers you can try "ADMIN" for user name and "PASSWORD" for passsword.
You should now be able to see your wireless router settings. You can configure your network ports, as well as SSID (wireless network name) and passwords.

OR YES YOU CAN ALWAYS RESET TO THE "OUT-OF THE BOX" SETTINGS BY PRESSING THE TINY RESET BUTTON ON THE BACK (need paper-clip)

Take an Ethernet cable, and connect one computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD and press ENTER
Type IPCONFIG and press ENTER
Look for a line of output like:
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 264.468.326.124
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://264.468.326.124 and press ENTER
Login to the Router (ID/password required)
Run the Wireless Networking Setup Wizard,
and create an SSID and create a WEP-key.

Can't remember password for my router and need it to get on the internet with another device with my linksys


You can accsess the router config menu by using your browser. Type in 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 into your browser. That will bring the screen up to enter your user name and password. If you have not changed it the default is username:blank(no entry) and password is:"admin". If you have forgotten this password then you will need to use a pen to push and hold the reset button for more than 4 seconds to re-set the password to the default(this will clear all the router settings to factory default and disable WEP/WPA settings). Once in the router config menu you can then look at/change the WEP or WPA security key that every computer needs to connect to the router.

Forgot network password


Hello...if you need to retrieve your network key, eg to connect a new laptop to the internet, this can be found within your router settings.

Here's a rough guide:

1. Type your router IP address, eg http://192.168.1.1 or whatever is correct for your model, into a web browser address bar

2. Enter your router username and/or password at the prompt. The defaults for Linksys are username: (left blank) and password: admin : but if you have set a router password/username, please enter these.

3. In the router user interface, go to the section headed Wireless Security, or similar. Every router is different, so you may have to hunt around a little. Key words to look for are Security, Wireless Settings, Encryption, WPA, (or WEP).

Your network key will be somewhere here. It might be labelled PSK, pre-shared key, WPA or WEP key, WPA-PSK, network key, WPA shared key, passphrase etc – but that’s the one you need.

For more details, you could pick up a manual from the Linksys site or view the help pages; otherwise, please come back to Fixya with your model number, and let us know how we can help. Good luck
