Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)
I have router security set to WPA Personal. On my laptop when I select my network from available wireless networks I am not prompted for security key. If I highlight the network and use change advance settings, the network shows up as network authentication open and data encryption WEP. I'm using Win XP Pro SP3. I have another laptop and a desktop with wireless adapter that both connect just fine. Any suggestions?
You could try just typing in www.routerlogin.com and entering your router password.. (my default is 'admin' for user and 'password' for password) and then go into the Wireless section, or the Security section and enable WEP with whatever password you will remember easily.
If in doubt, you can Restore Factory Settings and that'll clear any encryption or MAC filtering you might have set up, then you can start with a clean slate, and enter your new router username/passcode and your wireless encryption password and write it down somewhere safe!

Under 'preffered networks', which can be found on the Wireless networls TAB in advanced settings, you will see your network there. Click on it and then hit properties. Under the 'Association' TAB, you will see network authentication, choose WPA-PSK or WPA, but I will imagine that your key is a Pre-shared key. Enter it there. Data encryption will be TKIP and not AES. Go to connection TAB, and make sure the box is checked in that section. If these steps fail, then you can always change your encryption to WEP. You can do this using a computer which connects to your internet through the WPA key. Once connected on that PC, open up command prompy using the command cmd in the RUN box when you click on the START TAB. A black box will open, simply type ipconfig and look for "default gateway"...it will have a number with a few dots, like this one: 192.168.1.254.....etc. Enter this code into your internet browser search bar, and hit enter. Your internet providers interface will show up, you can find a tab which will have something to do with wireless security, and there you can change the WPA to WEP, with a WEP key of your choice. If you are prompted for a password then you should know it! Sometimes, the usernames can be simply 'admin'. If you manage to change your security to WEP, you can use your laptop!
All the best.
