Question about Linksys (WRT54GC) Router
I have a dell inspiron 1300. After hours ands hours trying to get my PC to pick up my wireless router, I realised that the only way it seems to work is if I disable the security settings on the router. Obviously this is not ideal and I have disabled the broadcast for now. The security settings on my PC don;t match any of the options on the router..I fiddled around with different options but I cannot talk to the router once any security settings are on. If I got to the Network properties, Association tab on the lap top, the options in the Network Authentication field are : Open, Shared, WPA, WPA-PSK, WPA2, and WPA2-PSK. Data Encryption option The options on the router are WEP for open and Shared, ASAE & TKIP for the others.
For the router, the Wireless Security options are Disabled (Which is what I am forced to use at the mo!), WEP, WPA Personal, WPA2 personal, WPA2 Mixed Mode.
Can anyone tell me if it is possible to set up WPA between the lap top and the router??? Thanks a mil..Val

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:
1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually http://192.168.0.1 else try http://www.routerlogin.com
3. Login to the router with the Username as admin and password as password (unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.
This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.
In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new password and click apply. You will then have to use the same password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
