Hi there, and welcome to FixYa.
You have got yourself a very friendly neighbor, but give him/here coffee, not access to your network.
- what you have to do, is to find the reset button on the back of the router, press and hold for about 5 seconds with power on, and you have reset it to factory standard.
DO SET THE ADMIN password as the first thing you do, so that your neighbor can’t access your router anymore.

Give your network a network name so that you can find yours if there is more around you. Network name are called SSID, short for service set identifier
Now, go to Wireless -> Wireless connection, to set the Encryption security settings.
Set security mode to WEP,
Set the Transmit key to your choice, if you know that you wireless card has 4 keys as well, I would use key 4.
Set WEP encryption to: 128 bit 26 hex digits.
Go down to key 4, and find a combination of numbers and the letters a, b and c.
(ex. 414243444546474849404a4b4c) = 26 hex digits.
Save settings.
Now, before you leave, WRITE DOWN your SSID, your new password and key 4 with your settings, as you need to set your wireless card with the same settings.
Start -> settings -> network and right click your wireless connection and click properties.
At the top, choose Wireless network, find your network, (your SSID) choose properties and set these settings as you wrote down from the router.

Now, remove the cable and logo on wireless…..

I have linksys wrt54g2 and want to put a password on it and dont know how


You need to set WAP or WPA2 encryption to prevent public access.

To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Wireless router is not working


Go to Here for Linksys EasyLink Advisor (LELA). With this software you can monitor the routers status and troubleshoot.

Most trouble shooting involves disconnecting the power to the cable modem and the wrt54 router for about 10-20 seconds. Then plug in the modem until it lights, then plug in the router. The Advisor will then get a new address.

It also shows a graphic picture of your whole system.

I have a wrt54 and use this whenever I have a problem. I fix it then turn it off.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck

Cannot access the internet through the router. Seems like the router and the modem are not communicating. When I bypass the router there is no problem.


make sure the router does not have the same ip address as the modem. change the last on the router xxx.xxx.xxx.001 to xxx.xxx.xxx.002

Windows Vista Internet Connection problem


Are you on the wireless internet or on the internet through a cat5 cable? If on through the wireless I think its a wouter issue. try upgrading the firmware of your router first. If that doesn't work try using a different router. Also try upgrading your drivers on your computer for however you are connecting to the internet. Either your network card or your wireless card via device manager.One of those solutions should solve the problem.

Ipod touch 2nd gen


Can you please tell us more specifically what the main problem is? To my understanding, it is a wireless connectivity problem with your iPod Touch. It's just a simple to check. Go to Wireless Network Settings or Wi-Fi settings of your iPod. Make sure it can see or detect the signal from your 2Wire. You'll just need to manually connect to it and enternet WEP key or Network key which you can find at the bottom or side of your 2Wire modem. That's the 10-digit code. If you have it entered, check the TCP/IP settings of your iPod, make sure the IP Address is set to Automatic or DHCP as well as the DNS Servers. That should fix it.

Bridge or Repeter mode.


It is possible but you will need to flash the router with custom firmware.

Here is how:
http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Installation

This is only possible if you have two wrt54-g routers that are of one of these types:

WRT54-G ver 1
WRT54-G ver 2
WRT54-GL

(there is a sticker on the bottom that can tell you what version it is)

This is the article that I followed and it workes great.

Lost internet connection via cable modem-router-tower


Alright, start with the basic Gateway IP. http://192.168.0.1 That is what i use to access my router's (yeah, we run just a few more computers than normal people) Anyways, If that doesnt work, then the router has been changed beyond a normal spectrum of Ip configurations. Next step is to recontact Linksys and Let them know directly that the IP Address for accessing the router is not working. Meaning you have no Access to the router at all. Almost all routers use the same base access router ip setup. Its rare to find different unless you are like a few people, who find they need to run at least 2 or more routers on the same internet connection because of too many computers.

Otherwise, follow this link:
