Follow these rules for a secured WLAN
connect to your router as admin using Lan cable.
Set A router password. (if not already set)
Change your SSID from standard name
Consider do not broadcast SSID
In wireless setting select WPA-PSK security protocol
Create a Passphrase to be used as key (write it down)
save and use new setting in every connected device of this network.
I recommend first broadcast your network with WPA-PSK password.
Find your network with your clients (PC, Console, print server) use pw to connect in secured way.
Be sure to set client network properties to "connect to this network even if not broadcasting"
For increased security modify your network in Router to "No broadcast"

Access point appears to have stopped working I cannot connect to wireless network but can connect with wired connection.


Hi!

If you can connect before then suddenly it stopped working, let's try to isolate the problem first. Usually this problem occurs if the the wireless has been interfered by some sort of interference like cordless phones and something like that. To address this problem, you can give it a try changing the channel of the access point. To do this, follow the step below.

> Connect your WAP directly to your router
>Open your Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.245
>It will prompt you to enter username and password. No username and password is admin
>When you get to the setup page, click on Wireless Tab and change the channel to either 1, 6 or 11. These are the strongest channel. Default is 6 so you may try channel 11 or 1 then click on Save Settings at the bottom.
>Now do a power cycle for 30 seconds then try to reconnect using your laptop

If that solution doesn't work, this time you can give it a try reseting your WAP to factory settings then reconfigure. To reset it, follow the steps below

1. Using a paper clip or a pen, hold the reset button located at the back of your WAP for 30 seconds then release it.
2. Unplug the power for another 30 seconds then plug it back in. Try to reconnect to your wireless network using your laptop
3. You can use the CD that came with it to reconfigure it.

If everything else fail, I'll suggest you to get in touch with Linksys support by calling 800-3267114 if you are in US or Canada.

Best Regards!

I need to stop others outside using my internet


you need to turn on password based encryption (aka security) that will turn your unsecured wireless network into a secured one.
open a browser window and then type http://192.168.1.0 or http://192.168.1.1 and enter your router settings. change settings including password. unless you've set it up differently and actually have a username and password, leave the username space blank and use "admin" as the password. that's often the default password on a linksys. linksys has a great support page. they have the drivers, manuals, the works.
your specific page for the drivers and the manual for your router which includes specific info including password, setup procedures, explanation of the various settings, how to do a hard factory reset, etc. is here http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WET54G - click on the download button below the picture

First you must be sure you are connected to the router (by wireless or cable). Than you have to open a browser and access 192.168.1.245. You will be asked for an username and passowrd. Username case leave it blank and the password is admin
To set a password for wireless you need to go to wireless configuration. For more detailed info look in the users guide at chapter 3. You can find user guide here : http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/products/WAP54G

Not able to install the software, tells me mdm.exe has stopped working and won't go any farther


Manual Setup: This option is best if you cannot use the wizard on the CD, are replacing an
existing router, or are technically knowledgeable. Follow the instructions in this manual to set
up your router.

Connecting Your Router
1. Connect the router, the computer, and the modem.
a. Turn off your computer.
b. Turn off and unplug the cable or ADSL broadband modem.
c. Locate the Ethernet cable (1) that connects your computer to the modem.
d. Disconnect the cable at the modem end only (2).
e. Securely insert the free end of the cable (1) into a LAN port on the router, such as LAN
port 4 (3).

f. Securely insert the yellow cable (5) that came with your router into the yellow Internet
port of the router (4) and the other end into the modem (2).

Setting Up Your Router for Internet Access
To access the router using its login name and password, follow these instructions.
1. Connect to the router by typing http://www.routerlogin.net in the address field of your
browser, then click Enter.


For security reasons, the router has its own user name and password. When prompted, enter
admin for the router user name and password for the router password, both in lower case
letters.


Enter the user name and password. The router will display its home page.

When the router is connected to the Internet, click the Knowledge Base or the Documentation link
under the Web Support menu to view support information or the documentation for the router.
If you do not click Logout, the router will wait 5 minutes after there is no activity before it
automatically logs you out.
Set Up and Test Basic Wireless Connectivity
Follow the instructions below to set up and test basic wireless connectivity. Once you have
established basic wireless connectivity, you can enable security settings appropriate to your needs.
1. Log in to the router at its default LAN address of http://www.routerlogin.net with its default
user name of admin and default password of password, or using whatever LAN address and
password you have set up.
2. Click the Wireless Settings link in the main menu of the router.
3. Note that the default SSID is NETGEAR.
4. Set the Region. Select the region in which the wireless interface will operate.
5. Click Apply to save your changes.
6. Configure and test your computers for wireless connectivity.
Program the wireless adapter of your computers to have the same wireless network name
(SSID) as the router. Check that they have a wireless link and are able to obtain an IP address
by DHCP from the router.
Note:

Connect to Wireless router using LAN cable.
Open Router admin page using the gateway address you get from your network status window from Systray (Support tab in XP).
Follow router instruction to set new WLAN protocol and Password (WPA-PSK for better protection) and use new passphrase (or Key) to set PC client network card protocol.
If Router is Password protected and you missed it: reset to factory settings to reconfigure.

Secure wireless connection with WEP but still picks up all wireless connections


If the unit has WAP as an option, use that instead of WEP. If enabling this still does not prompt you for a key, or you don't have this option, check here to make sure you have configured it properly... http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101675.asp

If that doesn't help, check this firmware page and upgrade... http://kbserver.netgear.com/release_notes/d103242.asp

Hope this helps! : )
