When accessing the router’s web-based setup page, a log-in screen will appear asking for the router’s password. The router’s default password is “admin.” You should change the password for security purposes.
The router’s password must be changed to:

  • Prevent unwanted users from accessing the router’s web-based setup page.
  • Enable Remote Management.
The router’s IP password can be changed by:
  • Running the router’s setup CD.
  • Changing it on the router’s web-based setup page. For instructions, please follow the steps below.
Changing the Router’s Password
Step 1:
Access the router’s web-based setup page.
NOTE: If you are using Mac to access the router's web-based setup page.
Step 2:

Step 3:
Enter the new password on the Password and Re-enter to confirm fields.

Connect HP 1102w to Linksys wrt54g


Hi! I was able to see that you've got a wireless printer. If you need to connect this to your router, this works like connecting a laptop wirelessly. First, you need to know your wireless name (SSID) and your password (WEP/WPA key). In case that you did not configure your SSID and password, it could be found on your router's sticker. If you were able to configure the two, then you just need to enter it when your wireless printer would ask for these info. If you needed help in configuring your router, I have here a page that you can follow just in case. Please visit http://www.columbia.edu/acis/networks/aptnet/linksys/index.html. This would help you on how you can set-up your router. In case this won't work, you may need to remove the printer's driver from your computer and reinstall it.Try to print a document via USB, just to make sure that it's working, then you may proceed in reconnecting it wirelessly.

Router does not show wireless light. I have reset it but can't access it with the setup wizard. Any suggestions?


* NOTE: If you tried to set-up the WRT-150N Router previously, but failed, with the Router ON, press the "Reset" button on the back panel and hold it down for 10 seconds, then release. This will reset the Router to factory settings and erase all previous data.
then do this :
1. Hook up the Linksys WRT-150N Router to the Modem via a LAN cable.
2. Hook up the Linksys WRT-150N Router to your computer via a LAN cable with the LAN cable in Port #1 on the Linksys WRT-150N Router.
3. Type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar of your web browser.
4. Log-on to the Linksys WRT-150N Router with these log-on credentials:
Username: linksys (lower-case)
Password: admin (lower-case)
5. Click on the "Clone PC MAC Address" tab.
6. Click the "Clone PC MAC Address" button.
7. Click "Save", click "Continue".
8. Click the "Wireless Security" tab.
9. Choose "WPA2 Personal - TKIP/AES" for encrypted security.
10. Enter encryption password (passphrase).
11. Click "Save", click "Continue".
12. Exit the web browser.
13. Disconnect the LAN cable from the computer and Port #1 on the Linksys WRT-150N Router.
In about 5 seconds, your wireless connection should be up and running.

Need cd for downloading program


Assuming you are trying to install a router.... routers do not use drivers or software. CD's provided with Routers are generally used to walk you through the installation/setup process. Most Linksys routers are default accessible at 192.168.1.1 via your browser. the default username is admin and the password is usually admin. If this does not work, try resetting the router by pressing the rest button located on the back of the unit (small hole) with a paperclip. hold the button in for about 1 minute and then release it... If you are unlucky enough to have a unit with a flashing power lite, this is a dead unit and is not repairable. Look up your model for more specific instructions on www.linksys.com under the support section.

Try to reconfigure the printserver using the setup CD that came with it. Normally that will fix the problem. Make sure the driver of your Printer is installed first before running the printserver setup.
