I have the Linksys WRT54G And it was working fine for years! Then today my computer shut down and when I turned it back on there was a connection but my computer was not responding to any commands. The icon shows full connectivity excellent connection. When I try to go to a web page it shows Connection Error and cannot get to any web pages.
I am able to get on other wireless connections from neighbors but not mine. I have gone thru different directions on here and I am not technical and don't understand what is being said. I try to go to 192.168.1.1 and it asks for a password which I don't have. I have tried everything such as password and admin and get nothing.
I am able to get my ip address and default gateway address and don't know the next step.
I can't call for help because I don't have tech plan with Linksys.
Can someone help and explain step by step what to do like I was a 2 year old lol. All these tech terms I don't get!!!

Hi ss2beagles and welcome to the forums!
Try to hard reset the router and configure everything from scratch. Please refer to the links below for the configuration whether you are a DSL or Cable subscriber. Please do note that, all settings will be gone and you need to connect your computer with a wire to the router to perform the steps.
If internet through the router is already working, please configure the wireless settings so you can connect wirelessly.
Please let us know how it goes.
