I want to connect my router to my computer, but I don't have the software it came with. I haven't used it in years, and I guess I lost it. Is there a site I can download the software from?

How to undelete picture

Assuming the picture is on a memory card and you haven't done anything else to the card since deleting the picture, you might have a chance of recovering it. Take the card out of the camera, put it into a card reader connected to a computer, and use a file recovery/undelete program.
Do a Google search for "undelete software" and select a program for your computer and operating system.

My software was lost in a power failure. Can it be restored?

  • Anything lost during something like that was stored temporarily, meaning it could only be recovered if you haven't done anything else on your computer since then.
  • Please reply if you have any more questions. Good luck, Cooper. (Please give a thumbs up, I am doing this for a summer job!)

I lost my security password for my router how can i change the code?

1) if you did not change the default password for the router, while connected to the router (YOU MUST BE CONNECTED) - you can plug an ethernet cable from the computer directly to the router (you do not need internet access to do this, you can use the ethernet cable from the internet side to go from router to computer) go to the router configuration page (usually or some combination of 0s, 1s, or 2s for the last two . points.

If you can get to this page (if not - just let me know and I can help you get there). The default username and password is (blank) and (blank). By (blank) i mean nothing, no characters at all.

If this works, then you haven't changed your default router password and you will be able to change the wireless password from there.

if all else fails, you can hold down the router reset button (is a physical button, usually pinhole on the router) that will reset the router to like the day you first unpacked it.

I am told I need a cable to connect the printer to the computer but the printer is wireless

You wouldnt not as long as you have a wireless router hooked up so the printer can communicate with your pc. If you dont have wireless router then yes you would need wire. Even though printer is wireless it has to communicate wirelessly with something..

Forgot password

To ilysurita, cj_mom, top_shutta…
First can I clarify what is meant by a ‘lost password’ …. The original poster here is asking about the password needed to login to the router configuration pages.

If you know the password to login to the router configuration pages, you can still get access to the network key (also known as passphrase, WPA or WEP key, PSK, pre-shared key) – which is the key Windows asks for to connect a new computer to the network. It will be found under a heading like ‘Wireless Security’ or ‘Wireless Settings’ within the router configuration pages. For this model, you can find the router configuration pages by typing (or .com) into a web browser, or

If you don’t know the username/password to login to your router, try using the defaults – for this model, they are admin and password.

However, if the router login username/password has been forgotten, the only way to regain access to the router configuration settings is to reset the router, as described in my posting above. I don’t know of any shortcuts to this one. :(

If you have to resort to this, you might want to wait for whoever set up the router to help with this. This is because resetting the router will remove all your settings – password, network key, ISP connection info – so you will lose your internet connection altogether until it is set up again.

On the other hand, if you’re willing to spend some time and patience, you can have a go yourself.

If you have your original setup CD this may contain a software wizard to walk you through it. If not, you might be able to download a setup wizard from the router manufacturer’s website, along with a quick installation guide (and a manual).

The Netgear site also has very clear troubleshooting and support pages which will help with setup, even if you don’t have any setup software:

Make sure you use a wired connection. Also, print off all the information you need before you begin, as you will not be able to access the internet while you are setting up the router.
Good luck whatever you decide to do

Weak wireless connection

Then you need to upgrade the latest software version in the router..log into this site
select easy link it and save the the file and run it.. that would fix the problem..
remember that .. you ned to run this download opnly from the main pc whic is hard wired to the router not from any wireless computer..
if your product is more than 3 years , you can better replace your router and if it is less than 3 years..
contact linksys and get your router replaced..
