No, you need to use an Apple Airport device.

Depending on which Mac you have, it either came with an Airport adapter or in the case of older Macs, you can install an Airport adapter.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I want to connect a Scientific-Atlanta WebSTAR 2000 series Cable Modem to a Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G wireless router but the linksys doesnt detect the modem and the computer wont let the setup program for...


Most Cable Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Media Access Control (MAC) Address authentication to establish Internet connection for end-users. MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to the network adapter/s of the computer.
To set up your Linksys router to work with a Cable ISP, you have to enable the MAC Clone feature of the router. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the computer that's registered with the ISP.
To setup a Linksys router with Cable connection you need to perform four steps using the computer that's been registered with the ISP:
i. Verifying Internet Connection
ii. Connecting Devices Together
iii. Checking the Router's LEDs
iv. Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Internet Connection

I need help connecting a Linksys router # WRT610N to a MAC


If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

No power


The light on the adapter indicates if there is network activity.

Check in device manager if the adapter is properly installed. Right click my computer, then select properties. Go to the Hardware tab and click Device manager.

If there is a yellow exclamation point on the USB adapter then you may need to reinstall the Linksys adapter.

If the Linksys adapter is installed properly, then check the wireless network connections if it is connected.

To ensure that you are connected to your wireless network, you will need to know the settings on your wireless router or access-point. Take note of the wireless network name (SSID) and the wireless security and network key.

If you are using the Linksys Wireless Utility, go to Site survey, select your SSID then click connect. Type the network key if wireless security is enabled.

If you are using the default wireless connection on your computer, just right click the wireless network connection icon on the system tray (lower right conner of your screen, near the clock), then select view available wireless networks. Select your SSID, then click connect and type the network key (if wireless security is enabled).

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Security


Hi,
For my opinion I suggest using MAC address filter, every network adapter haves a unique MAC address which you can use to only permit those computers with the MAC addresses you want.
Do this method with every wireless computer you want to access your router.
  1. Go to Star -> Run, type cmd and click OK
  2. Type ipconfig/all, here you will see a list of your network adapters, look for your wireless adapter and take note on the physical address number (something like 00-4F-....)
  3. Now go to your wired computer (the one that is wired directly to your router) run Internet Explorer and type 192.168.1.1 and enter. The router may ask you user name and password, if that's the case try the default password for your router (linksys wrt54g is username: admin, password: admin)
  4. Afer this you go to access restrictions and click Edit list of PC's.
  5. A window will pop up, you will see input boxes with labels like MAC 01, MAC 02, etc...
  6. Type the physical address you have got from the wireless computer in any input box labeled MAC 01, MAC02, etc...
  7. Click save settings and go back to Access Restrictions, make sure you have checked Allow.
  8. Now click on Enable and then save settings.
If you have more than one wireless computer hooked up with your router then do this process with each wireless computer you have (it is not necessary to do this with your wired computer).
Hope this works!

Security on the wireless


Most people encrypt their wireless communications using WEP or WPA_PSK TKIP to secure their wireless networks. If you wish assistance with this please provide the manufacturer and model of your wireless router/access points and your wireless adapters (computers if the wireless is built in)

Hiding the name of your network is another possibility however there is some belief that in certian cases windows might disconnect your wireless network randomly sometimes for significant periods.

Lastly MAC filtering where you load a quasi-unique Mac Address loaded into each network adapter into your router and refuse to talk to adapters that do not have one of he loaded MAC Addresses.

Please respond to this proposal with a comment and the requested information if you wish to assistance to complete securing your network.

Download Network Magic (no need to buy, free one will work) once installed look at your network map, you should see your router click on it and note the IP address. Type this address into your browser.
