Router won't connect with windows

Hello Benimur I would just like to say thank you. Your email helped me to solve my router problem. The ethernet drivers for my motherboard evidently didn't get installed in the recent install of WindowsXP.

The router wasn't recognised in the device manager. I reloaded the drivers, and the router now works

Thanks again

My connection is plug and then unplug, connect and then no internet connection repeadly. I check that could be the problem, but everythings fine. I update the driver but the problem not solved. what should...


It sounds like you may have a bad cable or ethernet port on one of the devices. Try replacing the ethernet cable and plugging it into a different port on the router. If the problem persists, it's likely a bad ethernet card.

Lost install disk


You don't even need the installation disk! Just do these easy steps:
Plug in your PC directly to your router. And make sure it is turned on. Also plug in your MODEM into the routers modem port.
On your computer open up Internet Explorer. Then in the address box type in: routerlogin,net
User: admin Pass: password
if password for the password does not work then just leave the box blank. Then just complete the steps.
If this works or if you need help then PLEASE email me:

email me wither it works or not!

Have 2 desktops and we need internet connection on both


Hello...if your son's desktop is set up near the router, the simplest way is connect his desktop to the router via an ethernet cable.

To do this, find an ethernet cable. Plug one end into a spare port (socket) on the back of the router, and the other into the ethernet port on his desktop (it should look like this, with the ethernet symbol under it).

That's it! He should soon be connected to the internet.

NOTE: If you need to buy an ethernet cable, key words to look for are Cat5e or Cat6, straight or patch cable - NOT crossover.

If your son's desktop is not near the router, you may want to consider a wireless connection. Please come back to Fixya if this is the case, as this takes a little more time.

Wireless Network working on laptop, lost internet on desktop.


If you disconnect the desktop from the modem, were you able to get an Internet connection in your laptop?
In order to get Internet connectivity on your desktop at the same time with the laptop, then the desktop needs to be connected to the router. It should be connected to one of the Ethernet ports at the back of the router. Since, your desktop doesn't have an Ethernet port, then you need to connect a USB to Ethernet adapter to your desktop. Then from that adapter, you will connect to it an Ethernet cable going to the router.

You may check the following models:
Linksys USB200M
Linksys USB100TX
Belkin Gigabit USB 2.0 Network Adapter(F5D5055)
D-Link DUB-E100

There are other brands that offer USB to Ethernet adapters that you can check.

Hope this helps!

Forgot Password


If it's the password to login to the adminitration page(GUI) of the router your pertaining to, then the only way to solve it is to reset the router to factory settings(Press and Hold the reset button on the router for 30 seconds, release the reset button and wait for the power LED to go solid). Now if it's the WEP or WPA key or encrytion key for you wireless connection, Open the router's Admin page using another computer that is connected to the router or hardwire the same computer to any of the 4 Ethernet(LAN) port on the baack of the router. Open Internet Explorer and enter the router's IP address on the address bar(by default it's 192.168.1.1) then you'll get a pop up windows asking for the router's by default there is no username and the password is "admin".
