Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I don't have the Linksys application on this PC that is hard-wired to the router. My WinXP system had it, but it is dead. How can I reconnect to that router and see my security key, etc.?
Hit the start button in the start menu go to run type cmd that should bring you to a black screen this is your comand prompt type ipconfig then press enter scroll thru and you will find numbers such as 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 you get the idea what ever pops up thats what you need to type in your web browzer those numbers and dont forget the dots this only works if you are hard wired if you are not hard wired try it on a wireless divice that is already conected to the router if you dont have these options of hard most not all routers you can take a pen and hit the factory reset button for five seconds this will turn the router back to factory settings and most likely wont have a pass code good luck

You will need to assign a different ip address to the Westell modem - I am assuming that both the router & modem are using the same ip address 192.168.1.1? If that is the case, then assign 192.168.1.2 to the modem.

Check on your cables makes sure they are inserted properly and the cord should be free of kinks, scrapes or loose connections......Also check the back of your computer make sure your ethernet card (the one that has the green lights/LED's) is seated properly (not loose)....
Good Luck.....hope this helps...if not let us know....cheers

Access the router's web-based setup page by opening a web browser. On the Address bar, enter your router's local IP address then press [Enter].
NOTE: The default IP Address of Linksys routers is "192.168.1.1". For instructions on accessing the web-based setup page using a Mac computer, click here.
When the login prompt appears, enter your router's Username and Password.
NOTE: The default password is "admin" and
the Username field is left blank. If you have set a password before
but forgot it, you need to reset the device. For instructions on how to
reset a Linksys router, click here.
On the Setup page, click the Wireless > Wireless Security.
NOTE: If some of the tabs are missing in the web-based setup page, upgrade the firmware of your router. For instructions, click here. You can also set the wireless security of your Linksys E-Series routers with Cisco Connect. To learn how, click here.
On the Wireless Security sub-tab, there are various wireless security options that you can choose from.
However, as mentioned earlier, the three most commonly used security modes are WEP, WPA Personal (or WPA Pre-Shared Key), and WPA2 Personal. The instructions below will show you how to set up the following security modes. On the other hand, the WPA2/WPA Enterprise Mixed Mode, WPA Enterprise, WPA2 Enterprise, and RADIUS security modes will only work if the router is connected to a RADIUS server.
Setting-Up the Wireless Security
WEP can be a 64-bit key with 10 hexadecimal digits or a 128-bit key with 26
hexadecimal digits. This encryption will prevent other users from
connecting to your wireless network. It will also protect your wireless
transmissions from being accessed by other users.
NOTE: In case the screen on your router's web-based setup page looks different, click here.
On Security Mode, select WEP.
Under WEP Encryption, select 40 / 64-bit (10 hex digits) and enter a unique word in the Passphrase field.
NOTE: The 128-bit key uses a higher
level of encryption compared to the 64 bit WEP. It uses a 104 bit (26
Click the Generate button and copy the string of letters and numbers displayed in the space provided for Key 1. The Key 1 contains the wireless password.
NOTE: You can also create your own Wireless Password (Key 1) given that it is in hexadecimal format. The hexadecimal system consists of the characters 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E, and F. You can only choose 10 characters (in any given order) from that set.
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a
Wi-Fi standard designed to improve the security features of WEP. WPA is
stronger than WEP encryption. PSK and PSK2, the two types of WPA, give
you a choice between two encryption methods: the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP), which incorporates Message Integrity Code (MIC) to provide protection against hackers, and Advanced Encryption System (AES), which utilizes a symmetric 128-Bit block data encryption.
NOTE: For older versions of Linksys routers, WPA Personal is also referred to as WPA Pre-Shared Key. Refer to the image below for an example.
To set up WPA Personal on a Linksys router, follow the steps below:
On Security Mode, select WPA Personal.
NOTE: If you are unable to find the WPA Personal or WPA2 Personal in
the list of choices for the Security Mode then you might need to
upgrade the firmware of your router to its latest version. Upgrading
the firmware can fix the bugs of the previous version and update its
Enter your Passphrase.
NOTE: The Passphrase must consist of at least eight characters and is case-sensitive.
