  • Since you have Internet connectivity through the router using a direct connection to the router, then you just need to access the router's setup page and re-configure wireless.
  • But first, check if the wireless light is on in the router.
  • Then, using a computer that is wired to the router, launch IE and type 192.168.1.1 on the address field.
  • It will then ask for the password. By default it is admin. Just click ok and it will lead you to the setup page of the router.
  • Then, on the menu click Wireless. Look for wireless network name or SSID. That is the name of your wireless network. By default it is set to "linksys". You may change it to a uniqune name and then save the settings.
  • Then, if you want to enable security in your Wireless network, click on Wireless Security.
  • Set security mode to WPA Personal and create your network key. It should be atleast 8 characters.
Hope this helps!

First, let's log on to the router.
  1. Open your internet browser and type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar. This is the default IP address of the browser.
  2. In the login box that appears type 'admin' (without quotes) in both fields. 'admin' is the default username and password.
Write down the SSID
  1. In the Wireless > Basic Wireless Settings menu you will see the Service Set Identifier or SSID. The SSID differentiates one wireless network from another. It is the 'network name'. Write it down, or copy paste it to a text file. You will need it later. You can first set your own SSID if you like.
In the Linksys WRT54G router you will find the wireless security options under Wireless > Wireless Security. This page allows you to set wireless encryption options.

here you will find you wireless key. this can only be done by a machine connected directly by network wire. make sure you are connected first. wireless is unable to connect unless it is directly connected.

I just got a new computer and I want to use the old one in a different room but its not showing the router. I was wondering if it because it was the one i downloaded the router to first?


Hi,

If the old pc is using a wireless connection, the signal of the router is not enough to reach the room. If it is wired, the recommended length of the cable is 15 ft. If it is wireless check if there is a wireless adapter installed in the old pc you will need one to connect.

I am useing DSL (westell modem) the modem is working but when I hook up my router WRT54G I am unable to connect to bellsouth internet.


I had a similar problem when I installed my DSL service. The problem I had was that the IP address for the modem and the wireless router ended in 0. i.e. 192.169.1.0. I had to chage the routers default IP to something line 192.168.1.10. Try this and see if it helps. You have to log onto your router without the modem connected to do this.
