Try this:

1.on computer, open Internet Explorer
2.On the address bar, type 192.168.1.1
3:Once it prompts you for a username and password , do not type anything on the username and type "admin" on password
4.Once you are on the page, click on "wireless" tab
5.Look for Wireless Network Name (SSID) and if it’s still set to ‘linksys’ change it to something unique then click Save Settings.
6.After changing your SSID, try changing channels to get around interferences. Preferred channels to use are 1, 6 and 11 since they are considered non-overlapping channels.

Network Magic doesn't work anymore. Do I need it?


Network Magic is no longer sold (as of August 31, 2012), but you can get support at: support.linksys.com . It appears that Network Magic Pro may have replaced it. There are other network management solutions available, as indicated here: http://home-network-software-review.toptenreviews.com/network-magic-pro-review.html .

If you are not comfortable in managing you network without a software management system, then you may have to get a different solution to replace network magic.

I need to hook up a wireless router to my cable modem but don't have the istall software for router


This should be relatively simple. Go to the motorola website. Look for downloads or support link. Find your router model and download the software. The download should be a more current version than the software that came with the router.

Hello,

To clear out the problem if Network Magic has something to do with your connection.

1) Uninstall Network Magic from host computer.

2) Remove Ethernet connections to router.

3) Reset the router (press & hold reset button for at least 15 secs.)

4) Run Setup wizard on host computer and follow on screen instructions on connecting PC to router.

5) Setup wizard prompts on installing Network Magic, just ignore it.

6) if it automatically installs Network Magic just uninstall the program before you fully use your router.


Resetting router clears all settings made by Network Magic application made on the router.

Hope this helps.

Try the Following steps:-
1)first of all to go online on any laptop we need the wireless setting's . If you are not aware then create one by using any pc which has the internet access wired or wireless from the router and open the IE or browser window and in the address bar type http://192.168.1.1 or http://routerlogin.net/ ,
2)A small window will prompt up which will ask you to type the user name and password which will be
user name:-admin
password:-password
and then left click on log-in.
Once you will left click on log-in it will navigate you to the router's administrator page.
3)On the left hand side you will have the blue/purple column in their under the category you set-up you will see a sub-title wireless setting's, left click on that option and then do the setting's.This link will guide you how to do that:-
http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/112/related/1

On MAC:-
1)Click on the apple icon on the left hand side of the start screen and go to system preferences.
2)Under system preferences a category name internet and network select the title network from there.
3)Under Network you will have an option for airport to turn it ON so do that and then below you will see list of networks available , from that list select the network you created , enter the password if it's secure one and you will be good to go from ther on and will have an internet access.

My laptop wont connect to my wireless router, but my desktop which is directly connect will?


You wirless switch has to be turned on for that to work. If that is not the issue then sometimes it it best to plug it in to the router and set it up that way. the computer already recognizes the computer and it finds it easier to set up the wirless.

If you want to make it real easy to manage your computers and the internet. Download a network manage ment program. I will help you connect you computers to the internet and much more. Network Magic Pro or Network Magic Essentials $30-$50.

I hope i have given you information that has helped you.
Thank you for the chance to help as well...

I have hooked it up as the instructions state but it will not find the internet, I am useing a hp laptop and am trying to go wireless, it is the vista system


No its not your windows system, try to check again your wireless router if the software firmware are installed properly in your PC. Also to configure it and connect your internet provider to the Router, which is automatically create its own Protocol Address or Obtain Address, even on Wireless connection. This is basic on Wireless Router to connect on the internet. Good luck!

Bill,

I understand the frustration and I will try not to add to it. I did a bit of searching and found one thread on another forum that was similar to your situation. This person said the following:

The solution was simple:

I was running NORTON 360.

Under firewall settings; disable personal firewall.

Once this is done, access is allowed to the host pc.

You can then set your permissions, create network paths and map network drives like you would normally do.

Bill, I can't tell you this will solve the issue but it did for this person.

Good luck
