I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Accidental hard reset on router- Help!

ask your nephew if he saved the settings for you, or try searching your computer for a file named something like this

network settings.conf

not sure if DLink save as .conf files but worth a try

i have an On-Q router, model# P/N 364772-01.

I'm trying to re-establish the home network, but I cant get anything to connect to the router. IP config shows no gateway, and I cant ping the router. I dont think I've ever had to do a hard reset on this router, but nothing blinks or flashes to indicate a reset took. This is a wired network, nothing is wi-fi.

Is there anything I can do??? Or is the router a brick now?

Edit: Im googling like mad, but it doesnt help when i have such an obscure router model. Would i be able to access anything if i connected my computer to the WAN port?

After working fine (well mostly) for the last couple of years, my network has been crashing for the last week or so. While connected to the internet, minding their own business, suddenly all 3 of my computers will lose internet access. I've tried everything, including following the instructions received on the D-Link help line (model DI-624), and I can get the system back up for a while, but inevitably it will crash again almost immediately. The only thing that has worked so far is doing a a hard reset (is that what it's called?) where you stick a paper clip into the reset hole and hold for 20 or so seconds.

Question 1: Does this mean my router must be replaced?

Question 2: Could the problem possibly be an adapter card in one of the clients? Would that cause the whole shebang to crash?

Thanks in advance for any assistance. I am so frustrated!

A:D-Link Router Needs Hard Reset

'Could the problem possibly be an adapter card in one of the clients?'


The obvious test is to run only 1, and if it happens, keep alternating one out and another in. If all 3 get the router failure 1 at a time, then the router is toast. If single comp causes the fail, then the comp NIC is bad.

Hi my advent monza t100laptop was turned off by my grandson shuting down and when I turned it back on I get aptio setup utility on screen and been told lost harddrive can I use my advent vsta harddrive and ry that in monza t100thanks

A:Hard Drive reported as empty after accidental power off during shutdown

What is the exact error message?
If your are getting the Setup Utility, then you probably still have the HDD and it is not lost. The HDD may, however have failed.
You can create an Ubuntu Live CD and boot off of that and it will allow you to browse your C: drive. This will also confirm that you do have a C: drive still and it is not lost. Then you can save any personal files to a USB HDD.
Once you are safely backed up, you can Run the Setup Utility and restore the computer to Factory Defaults. If that fails the HDD may need to be replaced and Windows will need to be reinstalled.

A:router reset

Unplug the router completley, and leave it like that for a good 2 hours, more if you can wait. I normally unplug it before I go to bed and in the mornining plug it back in. This SHOULD give you a new I.P., if not, call your Internet Provider and ask them if you can get a new I.P. Also, i don't think your router is going bad.

I have a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router that seemed to reset itself.

Is this possible? Or did someone hack my router to reset it?

It's just my wife and I and I know she didn't do it.

I couldn't remember my dang password and for the heck of it typed 'admin' and holy cow, everything appeared like it was when I first installed it. Really weird.


A:Router reset it's self - Is this possible??

Yes, it is possible for the router to RESET itself. I have seen a few times before in the past.

I would think that if someone took the time to hack into you router, they'd take the time to change the default admin password and lock you out of your own router. I know I would if I did it. Not that I would, but if I put that much effort into, then I might as well take the extra 1 minute to do the rest too.

They can at times reset themselves for no apparent reason. Just make sure you secure it again (default admin change) and make sure you setup wireless security again too.

Connect directly to the modem to test and determine that the problem is really with the router and not with the modem or ISP.

Make sure you have the latest firmware for the router; then reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

A:Router reset

It will reset everything. But since it's a cable modem it doesn't use a username/password for the internet connection so that doesn't exist to be reset. The modem will stay authorized after a reset and reconnect automatically.

Also, I assume you mean an SBG6580 as SBG680 is not a valid model number,

the router reset button changes your ip but does leaving your router off for 30 sec do the same

A:router reset button

Your IP address is assigned to you by your ISP dynamically (unless you have a static address, in which case that information will be stored in your router). Dynamic addresses are not stored in your router. It is quite possible that even though you have a dynamic IP that you appear to have a static one. It just depends on how your ISP allocates its IPs.

The router reset button is usually used when your router gets itself into a state that even a power cycle cannot recover from. It resets all of the router settings to the default factory state. You will need to re-enter all information that was previously stored in order to be able to access the Internet. Check with your ISP for the settings to use, and the router manual for details on how to enter it. Most routers allow you to store all settings and save the data to a file which you can place on a USB stick or other storage and from which you can quickly restore if you need to. I strongly recommend that you create such a file, if you haven't already done so. Again, see the router manual for details.

Hi valleygirl123, and welcome to TSG.

Before resetting the router, have you tried logging into it through a wired connection? Has the wireless ever worked on it?
Is there a small, recessed button next to the router's power jack? while the router is powered up, pushing that button for about 10 seconds using a small blunt object, like a straightened out paperclip, will reset the router to factory default settings. CAUTION: THIS WILL WIPE OUT ALL SETTINGS, USER NAMES, AND PASSWORDS CHANGED BY THE USER AND WILL NOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL HAVE A WORKING WIRED OR WIRELESS CONNECTION TO THE MODEM OR THE INTERNET.

A:I reset my router and now it won't work!

Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on. The following procedure should get you a connection with any broadband modem that is configured to use DHCP for the router connection, such as cable modems, and many DSL modems. If you require PPPoE configuration for the DSL modem, that will have to be configured to match the ISP requirements.
Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
Boot the computer.

When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:


PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>



Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

No Headbuster it is not normal, Most of the routers that I deal with do keep their settings when the power is removed and restored.

What might be happening is that the router has not completed it's startup routines and connecting to your ISP before your computer keeps asking for an IP.

I recommend that you plug in the router a few minutes before you turn your computer on and see if then your pc picks up an ip properly.

What you might be experiencing is hurrying the router when it is not ready.

A couple days ago I figured out the neighbors were jacking my wireless so I put a password on it.
Ever since then, one of my laptops will not connect every morning and I have to go and turn the power off and then on on the router and modem. Other people in my house don't have this problem so it is with my laptop, which is the only one with vista. I try to reset, reboot, etc on this vista laptop, but it will not get internet access until I reset the router and modem. What kind of software glitch might make this happen? This seems to happen every 24 hours.

Ok here's a strange one for you.

At my mother-in-laws to be, she has a PC and her work laptop.

Her PC connects wirelessly no problems, my laptop will connect wired or wirelessly no problems.

Her work laptop (Dell Inspiron 2600) if you connect it either via the wired card (3com 3c905b) or the wireless card (Linksys WPC55AG) when it tries to pick up an IP address it causes the router to reset itself.

Dont think it can be the router as the other machines work fine, but for some reason the Dell laptop has some serious issues.

Have re-installed all drivers and no joy at all.

Any ideas?

After being discon a few times I reset my router through anger and now I'm struggling to
connect to the internet.

My wi-fi is not being noticed by my mac.

I was told to go to and set it up again. However, I have
no Internet.

So, I'm trying to do it via Ethernet. However, I struggled to get on the net this way and couldn't type in that ip address for
my speedtouch router ST585 v6

So, I had to do it manually and so my settings are..

Ip address:
subnet mask:

using these settings I am still unable to connect. I can't ping the address because I get the error that
my host is down or can't find a route.

Hope this isn't confusing but, my internet provider (my cable company) came in to set up a wireless modem/router when we upped our internet speed today. We have three desktop computers which are hard wired to our existing Linksys router which we have been using previously. Would it be in our best interest to turn off the wireless function of that router (it's hooked up to the new modem/wireless router so the hardwired computers can function since the new unit has no ports to plug in the desktop computers into). Our wireless devices are all 'connected' to the new modem/router (using its passphrase and SSID). Can the wireless capabilities of each interfere with each other? They are sitting right next to each other.

A:Solved: Internet provider wireless modem/router and my hard wired router

It's confusing to me, but can make two comments ...

a. If you are not using the wireless network of a router it's best to disable or turn off the wireless--saves electricity and should extend the life of the router.

b. Two wireless networks whose channel numbers are less than five from each other can interfere. In North America if possible use channels 1, 6 and 11 to guarantee non interference.

This driving me nuts. Just about every time our lap top (which is running Vista) is turned off for any length of time, say about 6 -8 hours. When it's started back up, we get "connected with limited access" and can't get on the net. I have to go on the wired pc and get on my routers set up page. And with out changing any settings, just hit apply. And then the lap top connects. I have a D-link DI-624 with up to date firm ware, and everything is up to date on the lap top too. Any ideas?....Thanks

Hello people,
So I moved into a new shared flat and had trouble with the W-Lan connectivity. I tried to set the channel to a less used one and instate a password for the router. Something went wrong with the password an I had to rsset the router. Now nobody can connect to the internet (the lamp on the router showing that is off) but the network still works. Itsdefinitly a problem on the routers side, as all computers still work with other networks. The router is an eltek V7621 A2.

Ok, so I recently reset my router. And now that I have changed all of the default settings to at least what I assume they should be at, I cannot get the internet to work. (I am currently using the internet by directly plugging my modem into this particular comp, but I need internet on the others as well)

I remember that I was using a static IP on the old settings, and I'm at least pretty sure that I put the IP settings in correctly, and while the router is connected it SAYS i have an internet connection, but I can't actually browse the internet. Any Idea what I might need to do?

I turn off my router everytime I leave the house or go to sleep for fire safety. Everytime I bootup my router, I am forced to reset it using the reset button on the back. Then I have to reconfigure everything. I have a Wireless G WRT54G V1 with the latest firmware. I know I know, I need to get a newer router. Thanks.

hi, i was wondering if anyone knew how to reset an internal wireless router, rather than an external. i've found how to reset an external one by using a paper clip or something and pushing the button for a few seconds, but how can i reset an internal router??

A:how to reset INTERNAL wireless router

Make/model of your router would have been nice; however, I would presume that you would reset it by simply logging onto your router web-interface. Just type: into the IE Address bar. If you don't know the username/password, then visit: and look for your router. Just look at port forwarding, however only the start of the topic will be relevant to you, as it discusses how to log-in. Once you've logged in, just browse the site for a 'reset' or 'reset to default settings' option. That would be my best guess. Good luck :/

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

A:Unable to reset linksys BEFW11S4 ver 4 router

Sounds like your router needs a hard reset, the following has helped me in some cases, but be aware, if these procedures don't work, than your router has gone bye bye, it's junk.

To reset your router to factory defaults, use the following procedure:

1) Power down all computers, the router, and the modem, and unplug them from the wall.
2) Disconnect all wires from the router.
3) Power up the router and allow it to fully boot (1-2 minutes).
4) Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds, then release it, then let the router reset and reboot (2-3 minutes).
5) Power down the router.
6) Connect one computer by wire to port 1 on the router (NOT to the internet port).
7) Power up the router and allow it to fully boot (1-2 minutes).
8) Power up the computer (if the computer has a wireless card, make sure it is off).
9) Try to ping the router. To do this, click the "Start" button > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. A black DOS box will appear. Enter the following: "ping" (no quotes), and hit the Enter key. You will see 3 or 4 lines that start either with "Reply from ... " or "Request timed out." If you see "Reply from ...", your computer has found your router.
10) Open your browser and point it to This will take you to your router's login page. Leave the user name blank, and in the password field, enter "admin" (with no quotes). This will take you to your router setup page. Note the version number of your firmware (usually listed near upper right corner of screen). Exit your browser.

If you get this far without problems, try the setup disk (or setup the router manually, if you prefer), and see if you can get your router setup and working.

If you cannot get "Reply from ..." in step 9 above, your router is dead.

If there's some time left on any type or warrenty for this device, I would recommend using it, that is if in fact your router is dead.

Good luck.............hope this helps!

A:wired router drops connection after reset

If upgrading the firmware and resetting to factory defaults and reconfiguring don't cure this, it may simply be a defective router.

The system work fine connected directly to the modem, but introduce the router and the problem occurs. Diagnosis: The router is the cause.

A:How can I completely reset a Dell 2350 router?

Try hardreset of the router, unplug it and wait thirty seconds then plug it back in. Once its powered up, go to start, run, type in cmd, hit enter, then type in ipconfig. It will give you a seires of numbers for your default gateway. Open IE and then put that string of numbers into the address bar and that should bring up the router page. You can configure it from there.

I have a problem - my internet continues stopping by itself.
I am wired through a router which is wired to a modem.
This router is connected to 3 computers, and all computers lose connection simultaneously. It started as a few times a week but not happens every 5-20 minutes.
I tried to buy a new router - but problem persists.
I can not download the new router's software nor install it's software because it does not support win7 (the installation stops working at some point). I use Belkin. Old router was D-Link.
I have googled for days but nothing helped.

I am using Win7, AVG and ZoneAlarm as firewall. (Problem persists with the build-in firewall aswell)

I am using a TP-Link wireless router (tp-link W8920G) but whenever I try access the admin panel, firefox just says "The connection was reset." It doesn't work on other browsers or other computers either.

The default gateway address of the admin panel is and I can ping it just fine, but I can't connect to it via http :s

Is there someway around this, or am I basically screwed (ie. will have to hard reset it and re-configure)

It seems to me that you're going to have to reset it and reconfigure. In any case, that'd be the sure fire way to go anyway and you know any problems will be cleared up.

I reset it to the defaults then went to

Got in and put in my username pw and the rest!
Got my internet back and everything was fine!

Next day I wake up and try to access internet. wouldn't load.
Checked my settings, they'd been reset again.
This has happened in a loop every day.

The settings I input only last a day or reset whenever I turn my router off at night.
I've tried inputting the settings in Firefox, as safari doesn't log me in.
I tried Opera too!!

A:My Router appears to reset it's settings daily

No they must be in the router (ie it's not dial-up)

Did you select :"Save settings to router, and restart router" (wording may be different, but about right)

The Router will then Save all your modifications and restart (Actually I think it's "Save All" syntax)

Hello I recently reset my router because the connection was slow.. I tried setting it back up but I can not connect to the internet. I can connect the router and the lights on the router are solid green, but no matter what I do I still cannot connect to the internet. hardwiring my computer into the router does not work either. My ISP provider said that it was because the router keeps dropping the IP address. What could I do to fix this? I must mention that that the problems star ted after I updated the firmware, and the last step was to hold the reset button for 10 seconds. Linksys wants me to pay them 30 dollars to fix a problem caused after updating their router with the software on their website. Someone please help!

Well, hallelujah!

I was using that default address and admin and leaving the PW blank,
b ut that's when it was telling me that everything was invalid (as U know,
that of course is the install instructions on the Installer).

Anyway, pushed that reset button for 20 secs, then it worked!

I didn't think, being that info is directly tied with the security,
that it would reset those items, of course never tried it :-/

Easy when you know how!

Now I know how!


I still don't get the D link icon in the startup / system tray (whatever it's called). So no D link config utility. I checked in msconfig and there are
2 D Link Utilities listed and checked for startup - ?? Oh, well, at least
it finally works.

On the router install there's an "Add PC to the system" button which says
to click that D Link startup icon that's supposed to be there to add a PC,
but without the icon, can't proceed any further. Or is that ONLY for desktops (is that what they mean by "PC"?). When I get my desktop card,
that may be the next challenge

A:Must reset wireless router everytime I start up my computer

Just a shot in the dark but try turning IPv6 off in your network config on the computer, reboot and see what happens.

Some network equipment has trouble negotiating the IPv6 protocol just because it is still fairly new to the US.

If that does not help, shout back. A couple of questions though if it does not work:

1) Can you access the router interface at ?

2) If so, can you see any computers on the "Status" screen ?

I am trying to help with little to go on so if this is not pointing you in the right direction, I apologies.

Right now it is just Cisco + (last 5 digits of the serial number) and the password is well "password". I figure anyone with any knowledge who was looking for a available wireless network to use could hack into it, or worse yet do something illegal in which case i guess the IP address would show as coming from my home.

It is a linksys E3000
