Try all the ports on the router, check if the Ethernet light is lit up on the router. Check you lan connection if it says connected, check the IP address and use the default gateway address to access the router's UI. If its saying limited or no connectivity, try to turn off the router then turn it back on and check again. If that didnt work, try to reset the router for 30 seconds by pressing the reset button.

Slow connection low signal


If a wireless network has low signal strength, the transfer of information across the network could be slow or you might not be able to access certain parts of the network. Here are solutions to some common problems with low wireless signal strength: Your computer is too far from the wireless router or access point. Move your computer closer to the router or access point. If your computer is portable, try moving it around to determine the range of the wireless signal and the best place to use the computer. If you can't get closer to the router or access point, consider buying and installing an external antenna for your wireless network adapter. Many wireless network adapters are set up so that you can attach an external antenna to them, which provides better reception than the built-in antenna. Check the information that came with your wireless network adapter to see if you can install an additional antenna. The wireless router or access point is turned off or isn't working properly. There are two things to try: o Make sure the router or access point is turned on and that the wireless signal light is illuminated. o Reset the router or access point by turning it off, waiting at least 10 seconds, and then turning it back on. If you don't own the access point or don't manage the network, contact the network administrator. There is interference from other devices. If you have 802.11b or 802.11g network hardware, it uses the 2.4 gigahertz (GHz) frequency. Other devices that use this frequency include microwave ovens and cordless phones. If you have 802.11a network hardware, it uses the 5 GHz frequency. Some cordless phones also use this frequency. These devices can cause interference between your computer and the network. There are two things you can try in this situation: o If any devices like these are near your computer, turn them off temporarily or move them farther away. o Change the router or access point settings to use a different wireless channel, or set the channel to be selected automatically if it's set to a fixed channel number. Sometimes one wireless channel is clearer than others. In the United States and Canada, you can use channels 1, 6, and 11. Check the information that came with your access point or router for instructions about setting the wireless signal channel. The network you're looking for is set to not broadcast its network name (SSID). Wireless routers and access points can be set up so that they don't broadcast the network name. In this case, you can't detect that the network is in range (in order to connect to it) unless you've previously connected to the network or you manually connect to the network using the service set identifier (SSID). To connect to a network that's not broadcasting, follow these steps: 1. Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon ( or ) in the notification area. 2. Click Unnamed Network, and then type the network information. The network will be added to your list of networks and will be available to connect to in the future when your computer is in range of the network.

Linksys Wireless Router re-set


To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

My computers don't recognize my wireless network, all the lights are on the modem, router, i reset wireless router, even my Iphone goes straight to 3G and doesn't recognize the wifi in my house.


Did you set up the router? Lights don't mean much; it's not plug-n-play. You have to use the setup CD or manually login to it with your web browser (wired) pointing to http://192.168.1.1 and at least set up the SSID and security (WPA or WPA-2) key, then connect from each client using those same credentials.

My computer no longer recognizes my belkin router as a wifi access point. It's as if it stopped working. Any ideas?


Belkin products are all built from Refurbished materials. It is entirely possible that your wireless access point has simply stopped working. Try going in and restarting the wireless function on your router, you'll need to be plugged directly into the router via an Ethernet cable to do this though, if the wireless is not working.

Cannot get a 2Wire Gateway to recognize linksys wireless print server (wps54gu2). Can set up using lan and fix IP, enter wep password, etc. Once disconnected, gateway doesn't even recognize device.


1. Need to know what OS ( operating system) you are using.
2. Have you check if the settings are on " automatic DHCP and do you have the router
3.Check the firewall settings. This disconnection if not on the "access list" in the firewall settings.
4. Make sure you have the most current firmware updates on the router.
5. See if you can "ping" the wireless router.
6. check the " up grade history" page.

My network settings don't match wireless router.


First Option :

Connect your computer directly thru Router LAN Port. now
If your Computer is configured thru Static IP address then change it get IP address thru DHCP. and Re start the computer. So it will get IP address from Router and you will be able to access Router Admin thru browser.

Second Option

You will have to reset router to factory defaults. To do that ; There will be Tiny Hole or Switch on Router Back side or front side.
Using strait Paper Clip wire ; Put in that wire in that hole and give very light pressure for 5 to 10 second. Make sure that router is Power ON.

So your router will be resetted to Factory default. Now reconfigure it

Make certain tha you have your firewall setting allowing the wireless card to connect. When you type your password in make certain that your caps lock is not turn on. Finally if your computer can only run wireless B, you have to tell your to broad wireless B and G, or do a protection mode, where older wireless device will connect.
