On the back of the router there's a very small reset button where you stick a paper clip or a small pen tip in.Insert it in there and hold for about 10 secs or until the green led lights starts to flash. Once you do this it will reset the routers password to default, which is: user id: admin, pwd: password.

You may have to reconfigure the other laptop again or recreate the wireless connection.

I have a Linksys BEFSR41 router and a Linksys WAP11 wireless access point. How do I make my home network secure?


Assuming your WAP11 still has the default settings... Open a browser, and type the WAP11's address (192.168.1.251) in the Address Bar and press the Enter key. You should immediately get this password dialog; Leave the User Name field empty, enter "admin" (sans quotes) in the Password field and click OK. That will bring you to the main setup screen, below: connect.jpg wap11setup.jpg
Click the WEP Key Setting button and enter your WEP info.

Wap 54g asking for a network key? what is that? I have a house with a gite when guests come they want to use Wifi and i bought this to extend the signal but they cannot use it as its asking for a key


Contact your ISP provider how to get the WEP key...

Otherwise, just reset your router. there's a reset button at the back. When scanning for netwotk choose linksys with the one that has the best signal (4-5 bars) then connect. You won't be asked for any WEP key anymore.

Hope it helps! ^_^

I have a linksys wireless usb card and it is not detecting my secured wireless network after configuring it


We need to know the wireless settings on your wireless access-point/router.

Check if the SSID broadcast is enabled on the wireless access-point. If it is disabled, then you have to manually add the SSID to the wireless adapter and make sure the wireless security such as WEP or WPA keys are correct.

You may also enable SSID broadcast so that the wireless adapter will detect your wireless network.

Also, you may try to change the wireless channel to 6 or 11.

Wireless router connection problems


Assuming "cannot connect to linksys router directly" means you cannot connect to a Wireless Lan managed by Linksys router,
1) try to connect new computer to LinkSys Router using a Lan cable, add new PC to your network.
2) recover protocol (WEP or WPA) and Key of WLAN (Passphrase or Key: TKIP or AES) either from other PC on same network either from your Router.
3) If you missed actual key you must connect to router and reset it to a new key to be eventually used for every connected device.
Call for detail on this possibility

No wireless


You need to be a little clear on the spec of the laptop, operating system and the wireless router whether the PC is connected wirelessly or directly with a Ethernet cable. (sorry if this is embedded elsewhere - new to this forum).

If you are using a WEP key remove it temporarily and allow the laptop to find the network then see it if connects. There can sometimes be problems with the WEP key association / firmware of the router.

Also ensure that MAC Address filtering is turned off while trying to connect. Some laptops also have a wireless switch - ensure this is activated (sometimes a dedicated button, function key combo or even deactivated in the BIOS) There are so many things that need to be checked.

Can not get the second laptop on the internet with the wireless


The post says he has a router "linksys wireless-g access point router" ???

If it is only an Access Point then Joed is correct you need the router to access your broadband with more then 1 PC

If you have a wireless access router then here are the instructions:-
Easy Solution (you should be so lucky)
Sometimes the value for the Wireless Key is written on the underneath of the router, look for SSID (this is the network name) and WEP or WPA key (called the encryption key)

Alternative Method
In order to find out your Wireless Network Key you must first use a cable to connect to your router.

Once connected check that you are connected to the internet by opening Internet Explorer

The address or the router is usually one of the following values:-

http://192.168.0.1
http://192.168.1.1
http://10.10.0.2
http://192.168.2.1
http://192.168.2.254

Try clicking on each and see if you get a logon box popping up

If you do, that is the correct address for your Wireless router, note it down.

If the box has the username and password completed, then click OK

If there is no value for username try "admin" and for the password try one of the following "password", "admin",

Also try nothing for the username and "admin" for the password

Sometimes the value for these are written on the underneath of the router

Once the router page is displayed, look for an item called Wireless Settings.
Next see if a further option for Wireless Security exists.
The names of these items vary from Router to Router

Once security is displayed the SSID (Network Names) and the WPA or WEP Key can be found.
If there is no security I would set it to WPA or WEP then the original computer connecting will need this value if it is connecting wirelessly
