resetting wireless router

Hi, my wireless internet seems to have been pretty cack lately so im going to try resettig the router. i know i need t find the small pinhole where i press the button for 10 seconds but after this im not sure what im going to have to do?

Will i automatically be able to connect up to the router again or am i going to have to fiddle about with things anywhere??

If anyone can help it will be appreciated.

return to default settings so you will then have to reload them manually or via the installation disc that came with the router.

password and user ID recorded somewhere for example.

You will have to go into router setup page and input you ISP login details as User and Password etc

On mine it's 20 seconds. Do you a have network cable? You will need to make a physical connection to re-input the information. I would use the cable before the reset to make sure it works and to look at the settings so you can note any changes. Also any firmware updates will be undone.

ok so im going to have to go onto my old computer and put the cd for the router into the computer and work with that to set it up.

i installed the router on my old computer, would i be able to reset it and stuff using my new laptop???

then change them and save them you should be able top access the settings by typing the ip address (on the back of the router) into Internet Explorer. Usually something like 192.161.1.1 the two passwords both usually admin.

You should not need a CD if you have your ISPs User and Password

You should be able to save the router configuration to a file then if you have problems getting things set up after you reset the router you can at least restore it from that config file.
