Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
And now my connection is open but my computer wont accept the router as its looking for a secure network. What do I do?
You need to reconfigure the router. The power outage probably resetted the router to it's default settings. In the default state the router doesn't have any wireless security; hence the "unsecured network" warning from your PC.
Connect your PC or a laptop with a cable to the router, surf to (http://192.168.1.1 or https://192.168.1.1 - ignoring any security warning); which is the configuration interface of the router and follow instructions in the manual.
When you have a Linksys configuration CD, you can simply run the "Easy configuration" setup after connecting your PC with a cable to the router.
Plainly put you just have to configure the router just like when you first used it.
