What you need to do here is to get the Wireless security from your Linksys router by accessing its setup page, Just type http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar of your working computer then that should be asking you for a username and password, just leave the user name blank and type admin for password. If you're already on the router setup page you will see there Wireless tab just go to it and after that go to Wireless security sub tab under wireless and you can find there the wireless key that you need..

If that wont work contact me back for further help....

I'm using TP-LINK TD-W8101G ADSL Modem Router to connect internet, I'm trying to connect it with Linksys WRT120N Router Wirelessly. I want to use WRT120N as access point to extend TP-LINK...


Unfortunately, you can't use two routers together in that manner. You must have a device in between them such as a switch or bridge or you'll have to disable the DHCP server settings in the second router. The second router then pretty much becomes a switch you may then use all the ports on the second router with the exception of the WAN port it must remain unoccupied. However, if you need wireless connectivity in another location far away from your main router then your only solution would be to indeed purchase an actual access point/bridge device

I have the wireless -G music bridge (model WMB54G) - I had forgotten the password so I reset it - Now, my computer will not recognize it - any suggestions?


The Linksys Wireless-G Music Bridge (WMB54G) has a web-based setup page that allows the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties.
Step 1:
Open a web browser.

Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP Address, then press [Enter].

NOTE: The default IP Address of a WMB54G is 192.168.1.210.


NOTE: If the IP address of the WMB54G has been changed, type the WMB54G's new IP address in the Address bar instead.

The WMB54G's IP address can be changed by:

    • Running the WMB54G's setup CD.

    • Changing it on the WMB54G's web-based setup page.

If you forgot the WMB54G's IP address you can:

  • Press the Reset button underneath the antenna for 30 seconds.

NOTE: This procedure will reset the WMB54G to factory defaults. Any settings on the Music Bridge will be erased. The Music Bridge's IP address will be 192.168.1.210and the password will be "admin" after resetting.





Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank, type "admin" in the Password field, then click OK.

NOTE: If the password of the WMB54G has been changed, type the Music Bridge's new password in the Password field instead.

I have linksys wireless router and am trying to get wi fi on a recently purchased Kindle but Have forgotten my Linksys password. Please help


Hi nancylousdol,

If you have forgotten your password you can reset the router to its factory state and setup a new password for it. Resetting the router will wiped out all changes that have been saved. To reset the router, look for the small hole at the back of it. Press and hold it for 10-15 seconds using a Pen or Paperclip. Then access the router settings page so that you can personalize the settings.

For you to access your router you need a working computer that is connected to the router and open a browser type 192.168.1.1 to he address bar and it will ask you for a username and password. The default username is "leave it blank" and the default password is admin.

Rate me if this helps so i can help others.

Thanks for using Fixya

The linksys utility always sends signal to PC speakers, even when wmb54g unit shows connected. The wmb54g and router are up-to-date and run WEP 128 security encoding. The wmb54g flashes faster when...


I can disable the sound card, set the music bridge as the default sound output device and it works just fine (after rebooting). But if I enable the sound card again, even when keeping the music bridge as the default, the sound goes exclusively to the PC speakers, no matter what device the connection is switched to on the Linksys utility. (By the way the music bridge shows correctly to be connected or disconnected....with no effect on the sound output.) The major hassle is that any usable change of output device requires a reboot. Still testing. Not a single answer from the community. Also I never required the promised temporary password.

I have forgotten my password and need to connect a new computer to my router-the router is a belking plus mimo and I have a linksys wireless g speed booster -what do I do to fix this? Many thanks


Reset the both routers in order to go to the factory default setting.
BELKIN (192.168.2.1) normally has no user name or password. So just hit enter.
Linksys (192.168.1.1)
User Name: admin
Pass Word: admin

You can always change the user name and password

Good Luck!
