EFG250 reset, but no manual to work off of, help?

Discussion in 'Other Linksys Equipment' started by icewildabeast, Jan 6, 2007.

  1. I'm on a corporate network, and I did a port scan to see what IP's are available and I noticed some IP's being used including something called "NAS1". I looked around for an hour and finally found it. Apparently it hasnt been used in months and just been sitting there. So I accessed it via IE (like any other linksys product I know of) but the default password wouldnt work. I hit the reset button with a paper clip for like 5 seconds, and heard a beep and then let it go. Now I can't find it on the network. What is the default IP address it goes to? and is the default username/password admin/admin ? Is there anything else I need to know about configuring the EFG250?

    We do have a dhcp server, but the NAS drive did not catch it after the reset.

    Let me know.

    I have the same problem

    I did exactly as you have done and am experiencing the same problem.

    I did have everything working fine before resetting the device. I wanted to restore my admin priviledges and have now lost all priviledges.

    Please give me a shout if you figure it out.

    well guys, I am having much deeper problems with my EFG... The unit will reset to after a factory reset... try downloading the setup utility from the linksys website, it will locate and allow you to change the IP address without fooling around with trying to connect to it on a different subnet.

    as far as username and password, I got mine second hand, and when I tried to edit the password file so I could make it useful, it killed the installation of linux on the compact flash card. so until I figure out how to flash that back to factory default, I guess I'm SOL. hopefully you guys have better luck!
