Can't secure my home network

Reset Linksys WRT330N. Ran setup from Rebooted and receive message that says settings saved on the computer do not match the network. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I used to have WAP2 but that option doesn't appear so I pick WEP. I put in a passphrase, I hit generate for random keys I go to administration and pick a password then I reboot and then I get the message.

Find ssid number for linksys model wrt54g

SID broadcast allows computers to quickly locate a new network and connect to it. In wireless home networks computers often use only the home network, which makes SSID broadcast unnecessary. Disabling SSID broadcast adds a bit of security to your wireless network, because computers won't be able to see your network's SSID.
Log into the router.
  1. Open your webbrowser and type in the address bar. This is the default IP address of the browser.
  2. Type your login info in the login screen. Default: 'admin' (without quotes) in both fields.
  3. Go to Wireless > Basic Wireless Settings 'wireless
  4. Set SSID broadcast to 'disable'.
  5. Click Save Settings.
On the next page you will set a router password to prevent unwanted visitors from accessing your router setup.

Are you using a Linksys wireless router? It wasn't clear from your question.

Assuming you are, you'll need to reset the router to factory default, and then reconfigure it. Press the "Reset" button on the back of the router for at least ten seconds, then release. Then use your browser to go to and use username "admin" and password "admin" to enter the setup pages. You can then reset your wireless password, etc. You'll have to re-enter the new logon information in Windows as well.

You should also set the router's access password to something secure, as it seems someone "got into it" while you were gone and played around.

Hope that's helpful.

I'd suggest that you reset the Router to its default factory settings. After doing so, when opening a browser, you should be prompted to initiate the setup wizard. Once set up I recommend checking for any recent firmware updates.

On the WRT120 the Reset button is located on the
right side of the product label. There are two
ways to reset the Router to its factory defaults.
a) Either press and hold the Reset button for
approximately five seconds.
b) Log into your router and restore the
defaults from the (Administration > Factory
Defaults) screen of the Router’s browser‑based

Check out the Linksys Support Page for your router.

I hope this helps!
Good luck and Please rate :)

I'm having a problem setting up my linksys wireless router. My computer sees the connection but will not connect to it? I've tried the repair option and tried to add a network with out any luck.

As i remember Linksys goes with Straight Through Ethernet cable. Always, good thing is to connect your computer to Wireless Router using LAN port. Set DHCP (Automatic) connection for your computer. After receiving ip from router you can setup your Wireless Router using GUI, and setup your Wireless Network, SSID/Security. From adapter to adapter there can be some misc problem with WEP/WPA/WPA2 and so on, so it maybe your issue, or OS blocking connection to Wireless Networks without security.

Cannot get a second computer on my secure wireless network

Have you set the properties on the second computer to match the security expected by the router? Since one computer works I would compare the settings for the network connection and set the second computer to the same.
