Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)

1 Answer

Swapping Linksys BEFW11S4 for WRT54GS

Have a B router coonected to a server working fine for years. I got a G router, set all addresses, MACs, WEP key, etc the same as B router.

My 3 laptops cannot map drives on the server like the used to on the B router. They do get internet access though.

Server can see the laptops, but not the other way around. Reconnect the B and everything works fine.

G Router is set as a Router and not Gateway.

Severely perplexed on this one.

    Since you have a server, did you already joined the router's credentials to the domain where the workstation and the server is grouped?

    Can you ping the IP address of the server from the laptop computers?

    Can the laptop computers see each other?

Configure the Router 1. 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.

I have a linksys befw11s4 router, i dont have a install disk, the router works, i just need to set up and secure my network, how do i do that?


You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or "1234" blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
If you are not able to access router then RESET it .You can RESET it with reset button it is in back side of router press it for 10 seconds then all settings goes to defaults then you can access it with above link.
Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B Broadband Router? i cant connect in my internet and my PSP how can i do to connect it?


Set up an open wireless network or with WPA encryption. The PSP supports WEP/WPA but not WPA2 or Wireless G, it's a B device.
Also use a short passphrase and DHCP to lease IP Addresses.

High ping


Question, why are you using so many different routers? Sounds like you are causing a bottleneck in the network.

This is how I have my network.

Modem ---- PFSENSE Firewall (currently my DHCP Server) ------- Cisco Switch ------ Patch Panel ------- out to my Servers, computers and one wireless router. See only one machine is managing my IP addresses.

Buy a patch panel and run wireing to all the locations in the house or just run wireless.

HP laptop not recognizing Linksys Wireless B Security Key..


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.
