Fix Linksys® Router Problems in Windows® 7
What are the tips to resolve various problems that can occur while installing Linksys router on PC with Windows 7?
A router is an electronic device which interconnects two or more computer networks, and selectively interchanges packets of data between them. Each data packet would contain address information which a router may use to determine if the source and destination are on the same network, or if the data packet must be transferred from one network to another. When multiple routers are used in a large collection of interconnected networks then the routers exchange information about target system addresses, so that each router can build up a table showing the preferred paths between any two systems on the interconnected networks.
Different problems that can occur while setting up Linksys router are discussed below:

Setting up Linksys router on Windows 7
To start the installation, look for a section named wireless or similar wording and find an SSID name and a Security key. Now change the SSID to a secure password. Your router might have a section that allows you to backup and restore its configuration details. First make a backup to enable you to easily restore the set-up in the event of having to reset the router to factory settings. The SSID and key would be needed for any wireless computer to connect to a router.
To get the Internet functioning back, first turn off the computer and unplug the modem and router. Wait for ten minutes. After ten minutes, plug in the modem and router and turn on the system. Push the button in the center of the Linksys console which is the reset button. Most of the time this will bring everything back to normal.
A virus in the system can also create issues after the installation or during the installation process. You need to make sure that there is a dependable antivirus in the system to avoid such situation. An antivirus can scan your system for virus in the file and folders saved in the system. This would enable you to find and fix the virus infections.
