Download installation cd linksys wrt54gs


You could install the Linksys WRT54GS without any CD.

You could use the Linksys EasyLink Advisor to scan your network for the Linksys WRT54GS.

The Default IP-address is 192.168.1.1 so you should be able to connect to the Linksys with your Webbrowser when you do a factory reset of the Linksys.

Tip

How do I set up the wireless network key on my linksys router?


Hi.

This tip applies to any Linksys wireless router.

First you need to access the router control panel , and check wireless settings.

Therouter control panel is accessed connecting a computer to the router.This is done using an Ethernet cable, and entering router IP address in Internet Explorer address bar.

Here the cable:

Here the procedure.

Connect router to computer using a network cable (LAN cable with RJ45 connector).

On computer open Internet explorer and type router IP in the address bar (where you use to typewww.this.that ).The IP address is indicated on router user manual. Ifit has not been changed, 192.168.1.1 is the default for LinkSys brand home broadband routers. Press enter after typing the IP.

Enter router user name and passord. On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer LinkSys routers, both the default usernameand the password are "admin". If that does not work, then defaultsettings had been changed. In that case you will need to reset therouter. See: Reset a LinkSys Router Password.

After entering right ID and password you will open the router control pane as HTML page in Internet Explorer.

In the router control panel choose the wireless setting tab to see or modify the password:

If you do not need to change wireless settings, then write down the encryption key, and set the same key on the laptop. Once the right key is set on the laptop, the connection will start automatically.

If more computersare connecting to this network, then do not reset or change thewireless settings. Simply write down the key on paper and setup thelaptop.

Remember that WAP encryption keys are case sensitive, Wep encryption keys are not.

The simplest encryption to choose is WEP.
WEP means wireless encryption key.

Open the router panel, go to wireless, and find key settings or set your own key.

If you have to set the key:

If you choose WEP 64, then the key that you need to set will be 10 characters key made by numbers and letters from A to F.

Close Internet Explorer to get out of the Linksys control panel.

Regards.

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.

Not getting in to the enter net.


Make sure your cable/DSL cable from your wall outlet is plugged into the "Internet" port on your router, and a cable from one of the 4-ports is plugged into the network card on your PC. Then, open your browser and type in the IP address of the router (default is 192.168.1.1). The Linksys menu should appear, and you can begin to configure it from there.

Where is the wep key on the router


Attach a laptop or PC directly to the Router and open your web browser. Then type http://192.168.1.1 and you will be taken to a web page. The web information is usually under the security tab or under wireless. When you enable WEP it will ask you for a pass phrase, under that you will see three unique keys. Any of these will work as a WEP key.

The default username, password on the Linksys I think is Admin:admin if you have not changed it. You can also reset the router to get the default password back if you forgot it.

My router is a wrt54gs wireless-g,but it is wired ether cable.


  1. Make sure that your game console is wi-fi/wireless ready.
  2. Check the wireless settings (SSID, Wireless Security) which are configured in your router. To do that you need to access your router's setup page.
  3. Launce IE from the computer connected to the router and type 192.168.1.1 which is the default IP address of Linksys routers. Then, it will open a window asking for a username and password. By default, there is no username. Type admin on the password field.
  4. Once you're in the router's user interface, click WIRELESS tab. Take note of the SSID or wireless network name.
  5. Then, click on a sub tab called Wireless Security. You will find there the type of security enabled in the router as well as the security key.
  6. These settings such as SSID and wireless security should be configured to your game console in order for it to connect to your wireless network through the Linksys router.
  7. Hope this helps!

Reconfiguration


Do you have the administrator password for the router?

If yes,
  • Browse to 192.168.1.1 on any machine connected to the wireless network. Or using a direct cable connection to the router.
  • Under the Wireless tab click on Wireless Security.
  • There you will find your shared key in plain text
If you do not have the administrator password for the router. Check any machine that already is connected to the wireless network. Check the connection settings and find the shared key. Usually there is a checkbox to show the key in plain text.

If that is not possible, you will need to reset your router and reconfigure everything from the beginning.
