Hi, make sure the power to the unit is off then open the front panel and see if you can locate a fuse unit. If its there then simply replace it and alls well. If there is only a printed circut then another unit is the only answer. Goodluck with a fuse. Rgards mistyman

Hi Friend,

If you want to change the password for router login page then please follw the steps:

2. In the black window typ the command ipconfig and hit enter.

If you want to apply security on your router, so that no one can use your network, then please follow the steps:

1. Open the web browser and type the default gateway and enter the password.
2. Click Wireless and then Wireless Security.
3. Select WPA Personal from the drop down of Security mode.
4.WPA Algorithm should be TKIP
5.Type any ten digit number as the Shared key and note it down and click save settings.

Turn the router off and switch it on. Now whenever you try to connect your wireless devices use the shared key as the security key.

I hope this will resolve the issue.

This is a known issue with the wrt110 router and in incompatibility with windows Vista and windows 7.

Visit Linksys website and download the latest firmware which fixes many of these issues.

Cannot change network security

if you change any security setting it likely has to reboot.
if the wireless won't reconnect , start with no security setting for open/no security and see how it responds.
then match the settings exact.
otherwise update the bios in the router.

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop

Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
