Resetting a wireless-G access point

Dear Sir,
When you are inserting the clip in the reset hole do you unplug the power before you insert the clip or you can just insert while the system is still pluged to the power?

Hi,

It is not necessary to unplug, but it must be powered off. Basic steps then would be:

  1. Turn your DSL modem off.
  2. Locate, on the back of your Linksys router, the small button that reads Reset
  3. Press, and hold, the Reset button down for 30 seconds.
  4. Wait for your Power, WLAN and Internet light to turn on. (On the router)
  5. Turn your DSL modem back on.
  6. Open your web browser to see if you have an internet connection. If you still don't have an internet connection you may need to restart your computer.
Some tips:
  • When pressing the Reset button down make sure you don't release the button until you are sure if has been compressed for 30 seconds or more.
  • If you continue to have trouble with your internet the contact your local internet provider.
  • This will erase your configuration, so if you have previously opened ports for gaming, they will be blocked again. Try unplugging, then plugging the Linksys back in for the same effect without erasing the configuration.
  • Depending on what service provider you use, if your router's IP address has changed during the reset, it may take up to 24 hours for their servers to recognize this change and assign you a new IP address. During this time your connection will show as "limited or no connectivity."
  • On most Linksys routers your username/password combination becomes empty (no username) / with password "admin" (without the quotes).
  • The default settings for most routers is DHCP, NAT, or some other form of automatic IP addressing. Take this into consideration if you've changed your router's settings to assign static IP addresses.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

How to restore a new password wireless?


Most Wireless access points have a hidden button at the back in a hole where you can insert a bent paper clip. Holding the button in for up to ten seconds resets the wireless router to its defaults. The password is then set to the manufacturers default which you can search for online.

I forgot my password how can i reset it and make a new one


The password would be blank/admin/smcadmin by default. Blank password implies that you need to click on login without giving any input.

But, if you have set a password on your own and not able to recollect it, try resetting the router.

To reset router do this.

You will have to use a paper clip or a similar pointed object to do the reset procedure.

Hard reset: Insert the paper clip to the reset button and hold it down for 15 seconds, while the paper clip is still in unplug the power cord that goes in to the router, now wait for 15 more seconds and then give the power supply back to the router, again wait for 15 more seconds and finally let the clip go. You will see the router's LEDs flashing. If this happens it means that we have successfully completed the reset.

I would like to access my wireless account but i can't get in my wireless modem to change my pass word


default pass is 'admin' ...

if you changed it and forgot it ... do a hard reset ... find the small hole in the back ... insert a straight pin, press and hold the pin for 30 seconds. Of course, power down and unplug all wires before you start.

Cant access my N Wireless Modem Router using 192.168.2.1


First check the IP Address of your computer

If it is : 169.254 .x.x then you may need to reset the router by inserting a paper clip into the reset hole on the router

If the IP is anything else try typing the default gateway address on the Address Bar of the Internet Explorer

And sometimes The router may fall into Access point Mode and in that case you may get the IP Address Directly From the modem ,, In this case also you may need to Reset the router

Let me know if it worked at warrierrakesh@ymail.com
