When through the setup from the website (i no longer have the cd) linksys model # wrk54g - when i completed or thought i completed the setup i could not access the internet wireless any longer. There was one step I am unsure of asking about MAC setup???
You do not need the manual or CD
1. Turn off both the linksys and your modem
2. Turn on your and wait for the usual lights to turn solid
3. Turn on the Linksys and wait 30 secs
4. Press the button on the front to the left. It does not look like a button but flashes while it is finding an ip address
5. Now connect with an Ethernet Network Cable and make sure the internet is working
6. Disconnect the cable and Connect Wirelessly
This will connect without any security
To setup the security do the following:-
In order to setup 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, safari, netscape or other internet browser
The address or the router is usually one of the following values:-
Try entering 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.
Enter a network name usually called the SSID
Find and enable security
Set to either WPA or WEP
Enter your required value:-
For WPA you may enter any letters and digits
For WEP only hexadecimal characters can be entered and for 64 bit its 10 characters
