Default I disabled wireless on my router. How do I enable??

While trying to troubleshoot some router problems, I disabled wireless
for my linksys router through the basic setup at 192.168.1.1. Under
the Wireless options, there's a radio button for enable and disable. I
clicked disable, saved the settings, and now I can't connect to the
router through the IP address listed above. I tried resetting the
router and still can't connect.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can enable the router again?

you locked your keys in your car...

First - what model Linksys router ?
A hard reset should bring you back to Factory Defaults.
What IP address range is the default & is DHCP defaulted on the router ?

I'm guessing you are still attempting to connect via WiFi ?
Is the router default to enable WiFi ?

Does your computer have an Ethernet port ?
Can you connect to the router via an Ethernet cable ?

Nope. No clue since you didn't bother to supply the maker and model
number. Go to the manufacturers web pile and read the reset
procedure. Some require holding down the reset button for an extended
period before they actually rest the router. Others don't really
offer a reset and will clear the flash ram when the reset button is
held down. Some have to be reset within the first few seconds of
applying power, or nothing happens. Linksys is especially tricky, but
the procedure varies with model number. In general, if you held it
down for 30 seconds or more, it should properly reset. Meanwhile, try
plugging your computah's ethernet port into one of the LAN ports and
see if you can reset it from the web based admin menu. Also, you
might want to remember or scribble onto paper what you're doing so
that you later undo the damage.

Uh, I'm guessing you are running wireless? If you are and you turned the
radio off how would you expect to be able to connect to it?
Can you use an ethernet patch cable to connect to one one of the LAN ports
to your PC/Laptop?
Try that and get back with us.
