If this device was setup by your ISP you will need to contact them for the information. Otherwise if you have just purchased this device it will have a default "SSID" and usually no encryption key setup.

If someone else has helped you set this device up you may need to contact them. SSID's and encryption keys are usually picked by the person setting up the device. So unfortunately for this particular problem we may not be able to offer a lot of help. But feel free to ask addition question if needed.

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.

Can not get the second laptop on the internet with the wireless


The post says he has a router "linksys wireless-g access point router" ???

If it is only an Access Point then Joed is correct you need the router to access your broadband with more then 1 PC

If you have a wireless access router then here are the instructions:-
Easy Solution (you should be so lucky)
Sometimes the value for the Wireless Key is written on the underneath of the router, look for SSID (this is the network name) and WEP or WPA key (called the encryption key)

Alternative Method
In order to find out your Wireless Network Key you must first use a cable to connect to your router.

Once connected check that you are connected to the internet by opening Internet Explorer

The address or the router is usually one of the following values:-

http://192.168.0.1
http://192.168.1.1
http://10.10.0.2
http://192.168.2.1
http://192.168.2.254

Try clicking on each and see if you get a logon box popping up

If you do, that is the correct address for your Wireless router, note it down.

If the box has the username and password completed, then click OK

If there is no value for username try "admin" and for the password try one of the following "password", "admin",

Also try nothing for the username and "admin" for the password

Sometimes the value for these are written on the underneath of the router

Once the router page is displayed, look for an item called Wireless Settings.
Next see if a further option for Wireless Security exists.
The names of these items vary from Router to Router

Once security is displayed the SSID (Network Names) and the WPA or WEP Key can be found.
If there is no security I would set it to WPA or WEP then the original computer connecting will need this value if it is connecting wirelessly

Linksysy asks for a network key (Wep key or WPA key)


1. Using a computer that is wired to the router, access the router's setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address field of your browser.
2. By default there is no username and password is admin.
3. Once you're in the setup page, click wireless then there is a sub tab there called wireless security.
4. You will find there the wireless key that is enabled in your router.

Connecting laptops to wireless Router


Go into the admin portion of the router by typing the ip address in internet explorer. By default your router should by http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1

the default user id is admin

the default password is linksys or admin

go to the wireless section set the signal for mixed and assign an ID that your laptops can recognize when scanning.

By default your channel id should be 6. If the notebooks aren't communicating set the channel id to 6 on the network cards.

Once thats connected then you can work on your wep encyption.

Linksys will not allow any admin work on their routers performed unless a computer is on a wired connection. Only the wired computer can do the admin work.
