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 to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

SOURCE: need the security key password for wireless

The default username and password are as follows:

username: (leave blank)
password: admin

If that doesn't work, you can factory restore the router by doing the following:

1. Unplug the router
2. Hold in the reset button for 30 seconds
3. Plug the router back in and continue holding in the reset button for another 30 seconds

Note that this will reset all of your router's settings to default and you will lose any of the stored settings you have, but it will reset the password to the default I listed above. Hope this helps!

A linksys router password should contain at least 8 different characters. You have to put one or more character to change or put your password as authentication. If you have a further query then let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Trying to configure my Linksys WRT120N router, but when I click 'Save Settings' I get an error message (324). What's wrong?

I think you can try upgrading the firmware on your router,

Connect the computer to the router.
Download the latest firmware.
Open the setup page of the router and upgrade the firmware.
After upgrading the firmware, reset the router and reconfigure it manually.

See How to upgrade firmware on Linksys router.

I have a linksys WRT150N wireless n home router and I don't get internet signal with Ethernet or wireless all of the lights are blinking except power and security


I would ask for clarification, but the question that REALLY needs to be asked is: Are you signed up to any network? I've found that Linksis works as a motem. It picks up signals, and lets you onto the network as long as the network isn't locked. If it is locked, you'll need the WEP Key.

Password problems.


Depending on the type of router, you could have various defaults set, if you never changed them.
You can press the reset button somewhere located on the router itself, using a pen/pin/pencil, and then google your brand of router asking what the default password is.
If it is a Linksys, you could google "Linksys default password" or "Linksys default login" for example.

Lost installer/set up driver linksys model wrk54G


You don't need the disk. You should be able to log-in to the web interface of the router at this URL: http://192.168.0.1/

If you don't remember the password, you'll have to reset the router to factory defaults and then log-in with password "admin".

Hi,

Normally on the back of the routers there is a small reset button you can press and hold for 15 seconds. This will reset the unit.

If it's a Linksys wireless router, then the default password is "admin" in small letters (no caps). Don't worry about the username, it won't require it, until you get into the settings. If it's a Belkin, then Google: Belkin default password, and it will then give you a list of default passwords, depending on your model type. Good luck.

The Linksys Wireless router is fine, but your latop is not configured for DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). The computer is connected to the router at layer 2, whereas HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), sits
atop the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) layer, and seems to be trying to
query the ISP's (Internet Service Provider) network for a nameserver (via DNS (Dynamic Name Service) protocol) that doesn't exist on the ISP's network. Configuring the laptop for DHCP and specifying no nameserver will fix this (the ISP's network will dynamically assign a DNS).

Its also possible (though a remote possibility) that your Linksys wifi router may be configured to disallow TCP/IP virtual circuits to/from your computer's IP address - but this is a really advanced
capability of your Linksys wifi router - few know this capability even exists.

Connecting multiple wifi devices to the Linksys router should be no problem, just configure them all to interact with the router using DHCP.
