Reset my router now I can't connect?

I had lost my password so I reset the router using the button on the back. So now my laptop does show that it is connected but I am not able to use internet explorer or anything else. It shows the network when I do a seach and again it does connect but it doesn't seem to work. I am able to connect to other networks so it has to be something with the router and not my laptop. I also do not have my installation CD-
 
any ideas on how to fix this?

Re: Reset my router now I can't connect?

As you resetted the router .....all the wired & wireless settings are erased ....
The router is using now all factory default settings....
So the network name changed to linksys & there is no wireless security .....
 
You need to access setup page of router ..... click wireless ....change the network name "SSID" from linksys to any non-linksys name .... click save settings ....
 
Go to wireless security sub-tab.... use security mode as WEP ....
Type in the wep key & click save settings ....
 
Check on wireless computer if you are able to connect new network name or not ....
