ok default gateway is 192.168.1.1 and that works but when I get in the password request page I leave the user name blank and type admin and nothing happens and it comes up and after 3 times (tried with caps lock and not) it says 401 Unauthorized
Authorization required.

Any ideas?

Follow these steps to restore to router back to factory defaults (TO GET DEFAULT PASSWORD):

1. Turn off your computer.
2. Unplug power from your modem.
3. Locate the tiny button or tiny button hole on your router.
4. Hold in this button for 1 minute [may be less but all routers are different]... you can tell if it is restored by all the lights blinking rapidly for a few seconds when the restore takes effect.
5. After the lights quit going crazy let off the button
6. Unplug power from the router [don't mix up the power cords for the modem and router - one can damage the other]
7. Plug power back into the MODEM. WAIT FOR IT TO SYNC ALL THE WAY UP.
8. Plug power back into the router. WAIT FOR IT TO SYNC ALL THE WAY UP.
9. Startup the computer.
10. Repeat steps 6 through 16 from my previous post.

Any channel that does not correspond with the frequency of your phone.

THESE ARE THE CHANNELS FROM THE ROUTER:

Channel 1- Frequency 2.412
Channel 2- Frequency 2.417
Channel 3- Frequency 2.422
Channel 4- Frequency 2.427
Channel 5- Frequency 2.432
Channel 6- Frequency 2.437
Channel 7- Frequency 2.442
Channel 8- Frequency 2.447
Channel 9- Frequency 2.452
Channel 10- Frequency 2.457
Channel 11- Frequency 2.462

You said: "The phone just says 2.4 arent all of the channels 2.4?"

So your Phone operatins in the 2.4xx frequency range. We need to know what the last two xx's are in this range. To get this info you need to do a google search for the Manufacturer and Model OR locate it on the documentation from the box your phone came in. If you dont have the box and you can't find the EXACT frequency by researching it on Google then Use Google to find the Contact number for the manufacturer and Call them to get the information.

Once you have the information (the exact frequency your phone operates in) then pick a different frequency on your router as far from the Phones frequency as possible.

Example: My Cordless phone operates at 2.427 Mhz. So I selected Channel 11 (2.462 Mhz as my active channel for the router). Why did I not select Channel 5 as the active channel for my router - Because the frequency is to close to 2.427 and it may knock out the Router signal.

Hope this helps, but for it to be effective WE HAVE TO HAVE THE EXACT OPERATING FREQUENCY OF THE PHONE. If not then we are just taking a shot in the dark and we must select each channel one at a time and put the phone next to the wireless card and ring it once to see if it kills the signal.
