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.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

SOURCE: How to configure Huwaei MT880 with linksys WRT120N router?

Try these steps:

  1. Shut down the DSL/Cable modem
  1. Power up the router (no cables just yet).
  1. Power up the modem and wait for the appropriate lights (power, ethernet, and activity – something along these lines)
  1. Connect the modem and router with an ethernet cable (if there is a WAN port on the router make sure to put the cable in this port).
  1. Connect Port 1 on the router to the network card on the computer using an ethernet cable and check to see there is a light at the correct port.
  1. Open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. Input your routers id (usually an IP address or an URL) in the browsers address bar and press Enter. The address bar is where you would normally see, for example, http://www.google.ca If you don't know the IP address (such as 192.168.1.1) or the URL, try going to the manufacturers web site and downloading a manual.
  1. Now, a window will open asking for a user name and password (these are given to you in the instructions of the router). For example, Dlink sets up some of their routers as, username: admin and leave the password field blank then press OK.
  1. Now you are in the configuration page of your router (wireless most probably). Here you can set the encryption, new passwords etc… If your not comfortable doing these on your own most routers have a wizard that you can follow.
  1. If everything goes alright and the settings are successful you can now try the wireless connection. Go to a machine with a wireless card, right
  1. At the computer with the wireless connection, make sure the connection is on You might be trying to connect to the network by using either the application that came with the router or windows wireless configuration. Right click the icon in the system tray and “view available networks”. If it comes up in a window saying “Windows is not setup for wireless networks” then you must right click on the correct icon in the tray.
  2. Now, in the list of available networks, click on the name of your network Click on "connect" and it should ask for your security id (the encryption code). Put in the code (usually twice) and click connect or OK. It should now be "acquiring anip address" and in a few minutes it should be connected.

You can go in as an Administrator and change them the same way you set it up in the 1st place.

If you forgot the admin name and password, you can follow this link to reset the router to factory defaults.

Can i use my WRT120N on neighbors WiFi Network


Hello there,

You cannot use this router to connect to your neighbour's router wirelessly. It is possible to share your neighbours internet connection with this router, only if you run a cable between. You will need a Range Extender or a Wireless repeater for this purpose.

How can i block intruder?


If the Wireless device isn't secured, Secure it. Set up a SSID and Security Key(password). If it is secured, change the Security Key(password), Use the Linksys Setup Manual found here: http://support.linksys.com/en-us/support/routers/WRT120N Always Secure your Wireless. If unsecure your signal, at best, COULD be use by anyone to connect to the web using your resources and slowing down your activity. At worst, use your signal for nefarious purposes causing you a great deal of Pain and Heartache, and MAYBE the FBI knocking at your door.

Forgot my password for wrt120n


Looking for the Linksys WRT120N default password? You probably have little reason to access your router on a regular basis so don't feel too bad if you've forgotten the WRT120N default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the WRT120N default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the Linksys WRT120N, the default password is admin. As with most passwords, the WRT120N default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the WRT120N default password, you can also see the WRT120N default username and WRT120N default IP address in the table below.

Note: The Linksys WRT120N default password may be different for certain hardware orfirmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact WRT120N version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your Linksys WRT120N version number on the bottom of the router.

Be sure to change the default router password on your WRT120N to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new WRT120N password.
Help! The WRT120N Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular Cisco Linksys WRT120N, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the Linksys WRT120N default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the WRT120N will be the same as the default gateway IP address configured for your network connection.

See How To Find the Default Gateway IP Address for help.

In situations where the WRT120N default password or WRT120N default username has changed, you'll need to reset the Linksys WRT120N to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The WRT120N manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the WRT120N from Linksys Support.

Please let me know if any of the WRT120N default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the WRT120N default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.

I am trying to link up the Direct TV wireless with my Cisco router model WRT120N - but it is asking for the security cod from the back of the router and I can't find what number they want.


It appears that you router has not yet been configured for the first time. There should be a label on the bottom of your Router that has a security code written on it. Other wise you can log into your router and configure it via its web portal.
