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?

Here is how to reset your Linksys wireless router to the factory default settings in 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:

  1. 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.

Setting up linksys wireless router security wep . Linksys WRT54gs V.5 router. I reset it back to factory defaults. Now I want to make it secure again.


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.

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.

WRT54GS V.4 w/ 1.06.3 if web password is on laptop will not conn.


I dont have an answer but a question and a suggestion. Why are you messing with it if it works?

I suggest set all at default and then if you are concerned about security, go into your setup and turn off "broadcast" so others cannot see your router.

If you need more ... go into each device, get the MAC address for each. Go back to router setup and allow only those MAC addresses that you have on your network.

Im not a pro ... I have never been a fan of router encription. There are simpler ways to get security in my view.

I hope this helps you

I am trying to connect my ipod touch to my Pc but without success


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

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.

CAN'T cONNECT


You must set up the security settings that are in the laptop to match the settings in the router. These may be WEP, WAP, MAC address filtering or others. To change the settings in the router, you would used the web based interface. If you need more info:
