You can reset Internet Explorer settings to what they were when Internet Explorer was first installed on your PC. This is useful for troubleshooting problems that may be caused by settings that were changed after installation. Be aware that this process isn't reversible, and all previous Internet Explorer settings are lost after reset.

  1. Close all open windows and programs.
  2. Open Internet Explorer, select Tools > Internet options.
  3. Select the Advanced tab.
  4. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, select Reset.
  5. In the box, Are you sure you want to reset all Internet Explorer settings?, select Reset.
  6. When Internet Explorer finishes applying default settings, select Close, and then select OK. Restart your PC to apply changes.

This article documents a known issue with resetting a Linksys WRT120N to its factory default settings.

Symptom: Holding down the reset button on the back of the router does not reset the settings.

1) Download the latest firmware from Linksys (link below).

http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT120N

2) Unplug the router, hold the reset button, and plug in the router while still holding the reset button.

3) Open Internet Explorer, go to http://192.168.1.1

4) Use the "Browse" button to locate the firmware file downloaded from Linksys.

5) Once the update is complete, unplug the router and plug it back in.

6) Hold the reset button on the back of the router for about 30 seconds, a light will indicate when it resets.

7) Allow the router to reset for 1-2 minutes.

8) Open Internet Explorer, go to http://192.168.1.1

9) Enter "admin" for the username and "admin" for the password (without quotes).

Your router should now be reset to the factory defaults!

Do not know know password for wireless internet


Hi
Go here and download the manual http://static.highspeedbackbone.net/pdf/Netgear-WNR2000-manual.pdf
You will need to reset the router or change the password in the router 1. To change the password, goto Internet Explorer 2. In the address bar type 192.168.1.1 3. Press enter key 4. YOu should see a box with username and password fields. 5. username is admin 6.password is password 7. These are not the wireless passwords but the access password to get in the router. 8. Once in the router interface on Internet Explorer; goto the wireless sections and change the password there.
To reset the router WARNING: This will reset all the settings to what it was like when it came fresh out of the box. You may need to know some other settings. Restoring the Default Password and Configuration Settings You can restore the factory default configuration settings that reset the router's user name to admin, the password to password, and the IP address to 192.168.1.1. To restore the factory default configuration settings: 1. Use a sharp object such as a pen or a paper clip to press and hold the restore factory settings button, located on the rear panel of the router, for about 5 seconds, until the Power light begins to blink (see "Back Panel" on page 5). 2. Release the restore factory settings button, and wait for the router to restart, and for the Power light to stop blinking and become solid green. The factory default settings will be restored so that you can access the router from your Web browser using the factory defaults.
Failing this, please refer to the manual, page 29 onwards
All the best now

When using my D-Link-655 router, I can't access some Web sites, but I can access others. This applies to all computers on my network. I can, for example, access my work (company internal) websites and use...


Have you isolated the problem by directly plugging your computer directly to your modem, bypassing your router? If you have done this but still cannot browse some websites, then this is a DNS problem with your Internet Provider. Try using Open DNS, 208.67.220.220 as Primary and 208.67.222.222 as secondary. Then try to browse again. But if you have plugged directly to the modem and was able to access those websites, then there is a restriction on your router and you may need to press and hold the reset button to reset it back to factory defaults.

For "delete" your personal code, first be sure that you have the factory keypad code...

1. Enter the factory set 5-digit code.
2. Within five seconds, press the 1 - 2 on the keypad and release.

Why can't I download bigfish games on my new PC? I have paid for 4, and it won't load


The 2 most common problems for this are:

1:You may be having an issue with Internet Explorer. Try resetting Internet explorer to factory settings and the reinstall your adobe flash, shockwave and reader since these will not be in Internet explorer anymore. The instructions for the reset are located here:

http://www.icompute.info/IE7_Restarts.htm

The instructions are the same for IE8 and the page describes this for a different issue but all your doing is resetting Internet explorer.

Or 2: Your antivirus is not allowing you to installing your program. You may need to disable your antivirus while doing the install. Most antivirus programs allow you to temporarily disable them because they realize that the antivirus can interfere with installs.

Hope this helps.

Number pad on door


Yes, but you need the factory code also. First enter the factory code (5 digits), then press the 1/2 button, then enter your own 5 digit code. You can use either code now, but there is noo way to erase the factory code.
