    Hi uten, hi go-tech,

    I wrote up the same solution you two guys came up with, but two things startled me:


    1. You only need a security key if a computer joins a wireless network for the first time,

    2. how can you forget your router password?
    This question smells a little bit like "How do I crack a WEP key?"

    Therefore my question about the physical access...

    Do you have physical access to your router?

Hi Commewe

You will need to get the crrect password to get in to the web enabled setup. If you don't have the password any more you will have to reset it back to factory default. This is done by pressing the reset button at the back covered with a red plastic tab. Move the tab out of the way and press (with a pen) and hold the reset button in for +/- 20 secconds. You will now be able to login with user=admin and password=admin.

Regards
Go-Tech

I can't find my Linksys information in my computer


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

I had to reset my Linsys router because I lost my WEP key password and I got a new laptop and Now I am unable to log into the router again.


You can log into your router to obtain the WEP key. Usually if you type 192.168.1.1 into your web browser it will take you to the log in screen for your linksys router. The username will be: admin and the password: admin as long as it was not changed. If that username and password does not work then you will need to reset the router by pressing the reset button on the back of it for 10 seconds and then that username and password should work.

I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO SECURE MY LYNKSIS WRT150N


To secure your router wireless signal Your Wireless signal may already be secured by the manufacturer and often the wireless code is printed on a label stuck to the router itself
IF not already set here is how you secure the wireless Connect your PC to the router with a cable to one of the LAN connections - Now you need to Log into the setup of the router - to do that open a web browser, use Internet explorer (some routers setup pages do not work correctly with other browsers) In the browser address bar - enter the Router’s default IP address, 192.168.1.1, in the Address field. Press the Enter key. A screen will appear asking you for your User name and Password. Leave the User Name field blank. Enter admin in the Password field. Then click the OK button.
Now you can goto the wireless section or secruity section and set the type of encyption to WEP, WPA, WPA-PSK etc and then make up your own password.
On the PC Double click on the wireless connection in the system tray (bottom right hand side of screen) and then connect manually to your wireless signal - you will be asked for the password you set in the router.
Now you are connected.

Setting up sucruity


You need to go to the router's page. lynksys is //192.168.1.1 there you can set up you wireless encryption protocol (WEP) and name your broadcast SSID. The great thing about lynksys is you can have your wep key automatically assigned to you. Just make sure you use 128 bit encryption.

Configration wireless linksys


Hi

I would suggest you use WPA instead of WEP if possible.

If you must use wep use 128bit or better.

No network


The Wireless Security of the router doesn't match your laptop's wireless settings. Make sure you configure the wireless security password correctly on the laptop. If you don't know your wireless password, try these steps:

-Connect your laptop hard wired to the router.
-Open Internet Explorer and on the Address Bard type http://192.168.1.1 press enter.
-It will prompt you for username and password. By default, there's no username and on the password type admin and hit OK. If admin didn't work, type your own password for the router.
-When you get to the Setup page, click on Wireless Tab, then click the sub-tab Wireless Security.
-Look for Security Mode. If Security Mode is WPA-Personal, the Passphrase is the wireless security key that you need to enter on the laptop's wireless settings. If the Security Mode is WEP, the WEP Key 1 is your wireless security key. Connect to the wireless network and type it in. That should solve your wireless connection problem.

WEP key


it's impossible for anybody to know your password, you will have to reset the router, normally at the rear of the unit by pushing a pen tip into the hole and start again with no security and then set it up again
