Here is how to reset your Linksys wireless router to the factory default settingsin order to clear any existing properties.
Note: All your settings will be lost including WEP encryption information, MAC Address filtering information, and any SSID information you have entered. The router user name and password will revert to the default of admin as the user name and no password.
To reset your Linksys BEFW11S4 router to the factory default settings:
Hold the reset button on the back panel of the Linksys router for 30 seconds. All your settings will be lost including WEP encryption information, MAC Address filtering information, and any SSID information you have entered. The router password will revert to the default of Admin and all user name information will be removed.
When you access the router utility to change the router settings from the default values, be sure to leave the User name field blank and enter admin in the Password field.
Configure the Router1.Step 1 Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter." 2.Step 2 Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank. 3.Step 3 Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup." 4.Step 4 Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP. 5.Step 5 Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password. 6.Step 6 Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.
What i did with the WRT54GS was go to the linksys website, type in the WRT54GS as the product that I own, download the firmware (desktop is easiest). As Rajan said, use192.168.1.1 in order to access your linksys router and go to Administration. Then go to Update firmware. Upload the version (i think 1.52.6) from the desktop and wait for it to complete installation. It will restart your router with all the same settings, but your ipod should work. I tried to get mine to work for almost 3 hours and my ipod was connectin to the router but it wasn't giving the ipod an ip address. With the update, it took 15 seconds to log on...hope this is helpful.GST54GSWRT54GS
The WEP encryption is consist of 10 characters for 64 bit hex, 128 bit hex is 24 characters and WPA is 8 to 63 characters. So it seems that you have a vista computer? The compatible encryption for vista is WPA, sometime using WEP it is not working properly. So I might advise you to access the configuration of your router (192.168.1.1) and change the wireless settings of your router to WPA-Personal.
