Could we have the model number of the router please?

On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."

I need to install the router but the disk got broken.


You don't really need to install the router just for you to use it to your pc. What you need to accomplish is the setup or the configuration of your linksys router so that you can use either wireless or ethernet cable connection. You need the information from your internet service provider the internet connection type of your internet whether it is DHCP or PPPOE so that you can set it up on your router. You can use this link for wireless setup - http://www.columbia.edu/acis/networks/aptnet/linksys/index.html

No more internet thru router after new modem installed


Router setup
Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the Comcast cd installed. then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line.

Did Comcast reset you wireless router settings? If so, you may need to set up your SSID and security settings.


Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
To change the router’s SSID or the wireless network’s name, click here.
To change the router’s channel, click here.
To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Router hookup


Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.

Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.

How to Install a Linksys Wireless - B 204GHz 802.11b Router


Turn off your modem, plug your modem into the WAN port on the Linksys. Turn on the modem and wait for it to authenticate and connect. Then turn on the router by plugging it in. Plug in a network cable from ports 1-4 (does not matter which) into your PC. After your PC boots up, open your web browser. By default all linksys routers are set to a certain IP Subnet. So, in the web browser address bar, type in http:\\192.168.1.1 and hit enter. It will ask for a username and password. admin for both. The rest is self explanitory...just follow the tabs.

Your IP address for you linksys router needs to be changed.  More than likely there using the same IP address such as 192.168.0.1.
You have to convert your linksys router to a switch and change the IP address range it uses to on that doesn't conflict with the Verizon router.
10.150.1.1 should work.

Linksys wireless G-ADSL Home gateway


Sometimes this happens. Installing the Linksys software for your router helps a lot. To reset the router. Unplug the power cord from the wireless & unplug all cables to it. There is a reset button on the back side of the wireless. It is very small. Using a pen press & hold for ten seconds or so. Release & connect your cables & than the power cord. Never hurts to restart the pc or notebook. If you still need help you can check out Linksys home page for wireless G routers.

There is a decent ammount of help, a larning center & driver software.
Luck!
