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.

Laptop Can't Find New Cisco Linksys EA4500 N900 Router In Setup


Try this, your IPS Virgin, is a modem? remove AC from the ISP modem and remove battery(If it has one), remove AC power from the Linksys. Insert battery and plug in the virgin ISP modem, allow it to run the self test, may take a few mins. Plug in the Linksys, ( Is it secured with a SSID and security code?), wait for self test. turn on your computer boot normally. If that fails try this procedure: http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/windowsnetworkin1/ht/renewipaddrwxp.htm

My connection is running slow or lagging how do i keep people on the outside of my home from using my connection


Hi. This is a problem with wireless connrctions.
You need to turn on security on your router, and assign a security level and password.

Here is the link to the Belkin website with the instructions on setting up security on your Router.

http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/33/kw/drivers%20F5D9236/related/1

These are Belkin's official instructions for all Belkin Routers, an none of them have a password asigned to them from the factory.

URGENT! URGENT! New n900 does not find any networks. Network is unsecured. Have a 810 internet tablet which instantly finds the wireless network with the same settings. Also, n900 does not find any...


Your phone maybe locked to your phone provider.
When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security code then :-
This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (security code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone.
They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone.
Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone.

You could ring the phone provider and ask for the unlock security code because you are going overseas and wish to use your phone with a prepaid SIM card from another country.
The other way to get your phone unlock is to use a phone unlocking company on the Internet, they usually charge a couple of Dollars for their services. Use Google and search for "Security unlocking code”.

Security


If you do not have wireless security enabled then anyone within the range of the radio transmitter will be able to use your internet access.

A G band router has about a maximum range of 300 feet which is greatly reduced by walls, wiring and other items in your home.

If your using a wireless laptop you can do a site survey by walking around outside your home to get an idea of the range your router has.
