Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I have been connected to the router and it was fine, I recently had to recover my computer and lost all my info, I am trying to reconnect to the wireless but it is asking for a password I don't have anymore, what can I do....??
You need to access the setup of the router and verify the wireless security key.
1. First connect your computer to router (wired)
2. Access the setup of the router (OPen IE Enter 192.168.1.1 Default ip add of linksys router)
3. It will ask for username and password -Just leave username blank and password admin-
-If you changed the router password then you can use your own password
4. You will be directed to user interface of the router (setup page)
5. Look for wireless TAB, after clicking wireless TAB look for WIRELESS SECURITY TAB (Its a small tab under wireless TAB)
6. When You are already under wireless security TAB -Look for Shared Key if you are using WPA and key 1 if you are using WEP-
7. Shared KEY for WPA and Key 1 for WEP- Just use the value of shared key or KEY 1 as you network key-

You need to use a working computer with the router then access the router setup page that way you can get the wireless security key, then follow this step:
Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the ip address of your router. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.1.1
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is blank, and the password is admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.
When you're already on the Linksys router setup page, click on Wireless tab and look for a sub tab that says Wireless security and there you can find the security key that you're looking for..
