Options you can try:


1) do a System Restore to an earlier date? Start- Accessories- System Tools- System Restore
or
2) Hit F8 while the unit is booting. On the menu select "Last Known Good configuration"

We need to know the model of your computer to advise you further.


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

I cant log onto the web site or ip 192 thing to change my password,i cant remember my password and want to change it, but the site is always down or an empty page.... why cant they just make these things...


Here is the procedure to reset the system to factory default:
To use the restore settings button:
1. Locate the restore factory settings button on the rear panel of the router.
2. Use a sharp object such as a pen or a paper clip to press and hold the restore factory settings
button for about 5 seconds, until the Power light begins to blink.
3. Release the restore factory settings button, and wait for the router to restart, and for the Power
light to stop blinking and become solid green.
The factory default settings will be restored so that you can access the router from your Web
browser using the factory defaults.

Here is the link to download the manual.

Best of luck, Jim

How do you reset a password?


Easy, reset the router itself, should have a tiny pin hole in the back that has a button that you must compress, just google reseting your model.
If you have any problems let me know.

All the lights or on.On my router.But I cant it on


A couple times a year I have to reset my WRT54G back to the factory defaults. There are a couple of methods to do this.

Reset Button Note:
Resetting the router to the factory defaults will delete any changes you have made to the router, including any security settings. This should be used as a last resort.

The first method involves simply pressing a button located on the back of the router. The image below (courtesy of Linksys) shows where the button is located.

  2. Open up your Web browser and enter “192.168.1.1? in the address bar.
  3. For the login, leave a blank ID and enter “admin” as the password.
The router has now been reset. You'll need to go back in and set up any passwords or wireless security you had set up before.

How do i restore to factory without any restore diskson a lifebook t4010"


It is not possible to restore to factory setting without the accompanying restore disks. You can attempt to contact Fujitsu Siemens and obtain a set of repair disks from them.

Your only other option is to obtain a retail copy of Windows and perform a new installation, then download the required drivers from the Fujitsu Siemens web site.
