Let me ask you, are you trying to access the 192.168.1.1 hardwired to the router or wirelessly?
coz if wirelessly, its normal that youll get disconnected ....
Try this hardwire your pc/lptop to any of the numbered ports at the back, than access the setup page.... :-)

also, it helps if you also upgrade to the latest firmware version of your router ... :-) jz go to linksys.com

Goodluck!

My router is working fine. My network is unsecured and I am having some of my neighbours kids tap into my internet connection. My question is how do I program my router to be secured so that I do not...


  1. Go to the router administration page - Open a browser window (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) and enter the URL "http://192.168.1.1" and hit ENTER
  2. The use the password "admin" without a username and you should be able to get in (unless, of course, you have changed it in the past)
  3. Change the password, click on "Administration" and enter a new password into Router Password, and again into the box below it.
  4. I would suggest changing some of the settings at this point to make it more secure, but after that click the Save Settings button at the bottom of the page (at this point the router will restart)
  5. After you change the admin password (Steps 1 thru 3) follow steps 1 and 2 to get back into the Administration page, and remember to use the new password you set up in step 3
  6. Along the top of the screen you will see a list of "tabs" labeled, "Setup", "Wireless","Security", etc.- click on "Wireless"
  7. Right below where you clicked on "Wireless" you should now see another set of "tabs" - "Basic Wireless Settings", "Wireless Security", "Wireless MAC Filter", and "Advanced Wireless Settings"
  8. Click on "Wireless Security"
  9. In the "Security Mode" drop down box, select WPA2 Personal
  10. In "Encryption" drop down box, select "AES"
  11. In "Passphrase" text box, enter a phrase you can remember as you will need this to connect other computers to the network. Make sure it is long and should be a combination of letters and special characters
  12. Click Save Settings button
  13. Now your wireless network is secure - but anything using the wireless connection will require you to enter the Passphrase (created in step 11) to connect to the network. You should only have to enter it once per computer.
  14. If you want, you can change your wireless network "Name" (called SSID) by going to the "Basic Wireless Settings" and click Manual - change the Network Name to something you can identify.

Can i secure my network using wrt54g? some unknown user is accessing my network. How can i have security on my network? thanks.


To secure your Linksys WRT54G wireless router, follow these steps:
  1. Open your Internet browser and enter the following in the address bar: http://192.168.1.1.
  2. Note:

    If you have changed the IP address of your wireless router, enter that into the address bar. By default, the address is 192.168.1.1.

  3. Enter the user ID and password for your router. If you haven't changed it, the default password is "admin". We will change it later if you haven't already changed it.
  4. You should now see the "Basic Setup" Web page display in your browser. Scroll down the page until you see "Maximum Number of DHCP Users".
  5. This option will assign a specific number of IP address to computers. If more than this number of computers tries to connect to your router, they will not be able to.
  6. Count the number of computers that will connect to the router, and type it into the "Maximum Number of DHCP Users textbox".
  7. Scroll down to the bottom of the Web page and click "Save Settings". Once the settings have been saved, click "Continue" to return to the Web page.
  8. At the top of the Web page, click the "Administration" option in the menu bar.
  9. On the "Management" Web page, you should see two password text boxes. This is where you should change your administrative password. Type in a new secure password into both boxes.
  10. Once you have changed your password, click "Save Settings" at the bottom of the Web page.
  11. You may be prompted to login again, if you are then enter you new password in the password field.
  12. Navigate back to the "Management" Web page by clicking the "Administrative" option in the menu.
  13. We will now encrypt your connection to your router setup from your computer. To do this click the "HTTPS" checkbox next to the "Access Server" option.
  14. Once again, click the "Save Settings" button at the bottom of the Web page.
  15. You won't get the settings saved page again because the URL in the address bar is not longer correct. Since you have changed your connection to HTTPS, it you need to specify that in the address when you connect to the router setup.
  16. In your browser, change the address to: https://192.168.1.1.
  17. If you get a security error, ignore the error and continue to the Web page.
  18. Login with your password and then click the "Wireless" menu option.
  19. Beside the "Wireless Network Name (SSID)" option, type in a name for you network connection.
  20. Click the "Save Settings" button and the "Continue" button to return to the "Basic Wireless Settings" page.
  21. Click the "Wireless Security" sub-menu option at the top of the page. This is where we will provide the most important security setting.
  22. Next to "Security Mode", select "WPA - Personal" from the drop-down list. If you have trouble connecting to your wireless connection, you can try selecting "WEP", but your connection will be much less secure.
  23. Next to "WPA Algorithms", select "AES". Once again if you have trouble connecting to your wireless router, select "TKIP".
  24. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long "WPA Shared Key" with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation.
  25. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  26. Click the "Save Settings" button at the bottom of the Web page, and then the "Continue" button.
Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your "WPA Shared Key" exactly as you specified it
