    I have the WRT54G Wireless Linsky's Broadbankd Router, and some access my router and hacked my computer and changed it from a secure network to unsecured. Since they did that they changed my security code for me to get in and change it. How do I get the code and reset it to what I want my security # to be?

    Thank you,

Do you have the administrator password for the router?

If yes,

  • Browse to on any machine connected to the wireless network. Or using a direct cable connection to the router.
  • Under the Wireless tab click on Wireless Security.
  • There you will find your shared key in plain text
If you do not have the administrator password for the router. Check any machine that already is connected to the wireless network. Check the connection settings and find the shared key. Usually there is a checkbox to show the key in plain text.

If that is not possible, you will need to reset your router and reconfigure everything from the beginning.

    1. Press the reset button for 30 seconds. Make sure you hear the little tick sound.

      The settings should now be returned to the factory default settings, meaning any changes you had made would be deleted.

    2. Open up your Web browser and enter in the address bar.
    3. For the login, leave a blank ID and enter admin as the password.

IP Address Errors

It sounds like you may be having IP address conflicts. Many Xbox users have a fixed IP address set in their unit and then have a Port Forwarding done in the router to provide faster play. If you reset the router all this is lost. Then what can happen is that the router will assign a device the reserved IP address of the Xbox. When you turn the Xbox on, then it cannot connect as there is another device already assigned that address. Reconfiguration is required to prevent IP conflicts.

I cannot protect my network without entering a key code which i don't have.

You'll have to perform a factory reset of the router and then reconfigure your router all-over again.
You can download any manuals that you might need to do the factory reset and the reconfiguration at the Linksys Support web site.

You need to go into the wireless router settings, if you cannot see the encryption setting the you need to create a new encryption key and the configure the laptop's wireless card with the new encryption key so it can connect to the wireless router and Internet.

One possibility is that your wireless is being interferred with by either another wireless router or a cordless phone. 2.4Ghz cordless phones can knock a wireless router offline. I had a similar issue with a panasonic 2.4 Ghz phone taking down my 54g.
I replaced it with a 5.8Ghz model and all is good. If you are in an apartment complex, it is possible the interference is coming from a neighbor. You might try switching the "channel" in the router configuration. Test various channels to see if the problem still exists.
