Double check that the Default Gateway in TCP/IP properties is the routers LAN IP address (By default this is Without a gateway installed, there will be no Internet access. After verifying this go to Start>Run and when the "Run" window appears type command into the "Open" Field, then click OK Once the Command prompt appears type in: ping If you don't get a reply, the gateway is not installed. If there is a gateway already installed, check for any third party firewalls that may be installed on your computer. These can sometimes block Internet access. For more information please see the related article on assigning a static IP address behind the router. If still having problems, contact Linksys Technical Support.

You?ll need to setup Port Forwarding to set up a PPtP tunnel behind a Linksys router. Please follow these instructions to setup the router to forwarding incoming PPtP traffic to your PPtP server: Getting Started 1. You must set a static IP address on the server. If you're unsure of how to do this please go to our Answer ID 534 for information on setting a static IP address in Windows. 2. Once the static IP address has been assigned please go to your desktop and double click on Internet Explorer (Located on the Start Menu in Windows XP) 3. Once "Internet Explorer" opens, please type the "Address Bar" and click GO 4. The "Enter Network Password" window will appear. Skip user name and type admin (admin is the default password) as the password, and click OK. 5. This will bring up the routers "Setup" section. Look under "Domain Name" and check what version of the firmware you're using. 6. You will need to click on the Advanced tab to the very right. Once the "Advanced" tab comes up please go to the Forwarding tab.

If using DHCP, reboot your machine or release and renew the IP on the network card. If using static IP addresses, change the computer's IP address to match the new segment and remove the old default gateway and replace with the new LAN IP.

Please see the related article on assigning a static IP address behind the router. If you still can not access websites, please try changing the static IP address you're using. For example if you're using the address, try If that does not work please try the same static IP address on a different computer to see if it can use the information. If it can please try reinstalling your network card. If that doesn't work please contact Linksys Technical Support.

Very old router. I suspect a failure. I recommend you check out this website to see if there is any hope for it. Linksys WRT54G stuck in self diagnostic mode lol

Hello, Sit at your computer and open up IE browser. After this has opened up, go up to the url bar and erase anything there and when this is blank, type in then hit the enter key. The router should now pop up a login menu close to the middle of your monitor. The default password for Linksys routers is ADMIN leave the user name blank and just enter the password ADMIN This then will open up the routers main menus and at the top of the tabs look for the tab named "wireless" click on this tab and look this menu over and you should find the box to check or uncheck to accomplish what you want done. Good luck. By the way, while your in the routers menu "Change the Default Password" to something that you have to write down! leaving the password set the the factory default is a huge mistake. Like leaving all your windows and doors open going on a long vacation! Got it? Dennis

On the back of the router you will see what looks like a pin hole, turn the router on and use a paperclip to push into the hole(it's a reset button) and keep it pushed in till the router cycles off then on again, it resets the router to default. Hope this helps.

Linksys WRT... • Answered on Jul 02, 2017

Every router I have ever seen allows you to reset the configuration to factory default - but not allow you to retrieve a forgotten password and maintain your settings at the same time. This is often referred to a "factory" or "hard" reset. When you initiate a factory / hard reset, typically by pressing & holding a button on the router - or behind an opening in the router case - all the changes you've made to it will be returned to the factory default. Wifi becomes "open" with no password (on most devices), the login username / password also go back to default settings (common ones are: admin / admin, admin / password, <blank> / admin, <blank / password, etc.). Consult your router's set up guide or online documentation to learn what the factory / hard reset procedure and the default settings. Once you gain access to the setup pages of the router, configure it as best as you can remember, and lock it down with good security settings. At minimum - this should include changing the router's username / password, the WiFi's SSID and do not broadcast it, add WPA or WPA2 encryption and secure it with a security or network key (use a mix of numbers, letters, symbols etc.). I suggest recording all these settings on paper and then tape it to the bottom of the router. There it will remain out of sight - but ready when you need it. Good luck!

My Linksys wireless router uses a different password to setup a wireless connection with the SSID (wireless account name) than the password for logging into the router for administrative purposes. So I suspect you need a different password. However, without knowing which make/model of router you have, I can't help you identify where to find the information for your wireless setup. Please add a comment with your router information for additional assistance. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells
