Sir

Checking or verifying the wireless settings of your Linksys Cable Gateway is important when connecting wireless devices to your network. This is the best route to take if you are unsure of your gateway's wireless settings.
The wireless settings that you need to take note of are:
  • SSID
  • SSID Broadcast
  • Wireless Security
To check the wireless settings on the Linksys gateway follow the steps below:
Step 1:
Access the gateway's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here. If you are using a Maccomputer to access the cable gateway's web-based setup page, click here.
Step 2:
Click the Wireless tab.

Step 3:
Look for Wireless Network Name (SSID). It is recommended to change the SSID to something unique.

Step 4:
Click the Wireless Security sub-tab and take note of the current Wireless Encryption Level and the Wireless SSID Broadcast if it is set to Enable or Disable.

If Wireless Encryption Level is set to No Encryption, this means that the wireless security on the gateway is disabled.
If Wireless Encryption Level is set to 64 Bit Encryption or 128 Bit Encryption, check the value under Default Key and take note of the Wireless WEP Key that corresponds to it.

Don't know how to lock my linksys router


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

NOTE: It is advisable to connect the computer to one of the Ethernet (1, 2, 3 or 4) ports when setting up the router for the first time. If you have successfully configured the router using a wireless computer, unplug the Ethernet cable which connects the computer to the router for you to have wireless Internet connection. For instructions on how to connect the wireless computer to go online using the Linksys router, click here.

Step 3:
Make sure the power adapter is plugged in to an available power outlet.

PC works fine with Linksys USB card, but laptop's NetGear won't.


It looks like you are either using TKIP or AES just put the wireless to use MIXED and it will solve your problem.

Securing my router


Since you disabled the SSID Broadcast, you would need to tell you OS how to find the connection. Go to the properties of the Wireless connection in the Control Panel and add the connection there.
To secure the wireless go to 192.168.1.1
log into the router, the default password is admin. go to wireless then security. set the WEP or WPA there.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

I can't stay connect on-line


Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
  • 2.4 GHz interference: Your router may be operating on the same frequency as your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.

  • Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.

  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router
