Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
Im having trouble connecting to the internet with the wireless connection it says I need password to get access and it never used to be this way...I can only get online when I plug the cable in my computer from Rogers modem
So your wireless network is secured, so really before you can get online with it wirelessly you need to put in the correct security key which is calle a WEP/WPA key, since you can access the internet when connected wired to the router what you need to do here is to access the router setup page and get the security key that you need.
This are the steps to do that:
1.connect the computer to the router with a wired
2.on the address bar type 192.168.1.1 it will ask you for a username and password leave the username blank and password is admin, if admin did not work try typing you commonly use password.
3.if you're already on the setup page of the router, just go to wireless tab and there you will see a wireless security sub tab
4.just go to wireless security then get the security from there
5.then connect to your wireless network using that key
If the password didn't work you may need to reset the router adn reconfigure it back I will advice you to call Linksys tech support so thet can walk you through with that , this is the number 800-3267114 they are open 24hrs...
Hope that helps.........

- Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.
- A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
- NOTE: If the password of the router has been changed, type the router's new password in the Password field instead.
