Messag I am getting...the access point is already configured with unsupported security settings. Do you want to reconfigure it?


To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

I want to know how i can make my Linksys Router WRT160N work as access point


Hi,

By default Linksys router behaves as Access point. On some router you have to enable the wireless function.

So the following to configure the router Wireless Access Point

Click the below link
http://192.168.1.1

Now it will ask for username and password

Enter username = ( blank) and password = admin
If you can't login using this credentials then you will have to reset the router

If you logged in . Then click on Wireless > Wireless security

On this screen select

Security Mode : WPA Personal
WPA Algorithm : TKIP
WPA shard Key : "enter a password here"
Group Key Renewal : set to default

Click on save settings. After that restart router .
Now your wireless network is secured and you will have to type the WPA shared key inorder to connect to router when it prompts. You can connect as many devices as you wish since it is a access point

Thanks

Vote me If it helps

HI ,
1)Access the router’s web-based setup page.

2)When the router’s web-based setup page appears, click Wireless then Wireless Security.

3)Under Security Mode select WEP.

4)Under WEP Encryption select 64 bits 10 hex digits.

5)Type a wireless network password of your choice such as “MySecretKey,” then click Generate.

6)The result will be a string of random characters. Copy the resulting string since this will be the key to your wireless network

7) Click ``Save Settings``

Just purchase a Linksys WRT150-N Wireless Router. I can't connect to the internet using the connections suggested


First, check if the devices that you're trying to connect this router supports wireless encryption protocol-N (802.11N). If the devices do support then enable WLAN-N standard by following the manufacturers recommendations.

Then try connecting.

So have a hub and a wireless access point at office.
Do u have a router in the network at office ?
The default IP address of the WAP54G will be 192.168.1.245.
The Sonic firewall is a different thing.
I think you are accessing the set up interface of the sonic wall with the IP address 192.168.1.1.
Where is the access point connected ?
Is it connected to the sonic firewall ?
The access point does not have the DHCP server.

How can i configure the router WRT150-N


Access the router setup page by opening a browser and visiting http://192.168.1.1/. The default login and password for my new router was admin/admin. If that doesn’t work try logging in as admin without a password.

This will take you into the router to set it up.
