I think you should upgrade the firmware on your router. After upgrading the firmware reset the router and reconfigure it manually. I will also suggest you to create a new wireless network and use security modem WPA. Try to connect to the new wireless network and see if that works.
If you are unable to connect your laptop wireless to your Linksys wireless access point/router, the easiest and fastest way to get going is to reset your router to the factory defaults. This will make your router work like the day you bought it.
There are 2 steps involved Reset your router, Setup/Secure a new router
Reset your router:
Unplug your DSL/Cablemodem from power (not your access point/router) Leave this unplugged for now
On the rear of your Linksys router you will find a small RESET button
With the power still on the router, Press and hold (with a pin/pen tip) the RESET button for 30 seconds.
Release the RESET button a wait 15 seconds for the router to reboot
Unplug your Linksys router from power
Plug your DSL/Cable modem back in to power
Wait 1 minute for the modem to boot up
Be sure the ethernet (cat5) cable from your modem is securely plugged into the WAN port on the back of your Linksys router. This is usually labeled WAN or Internet above the jack
Plug your Linksys router back into power.
You will now be able to connect to the internet with your wireless device. I would advise that you follow the next steps in securing your wireless network.
Setup/Secure a new router Log into your router
Type192.168.1.1 into your web browser and hit enter
In the login fields (case sensitive):
Once in the web interface for your router
Click Wireless tab - Basic Wireless Settings
Find the Wireless Network Name (SSID) field
change this to your new network name (this is the name you will see when you connect through your wireless device)
Find the Wireless Channel field
Change this from 6 (default) to 1 or 11
Click on Wireless Security
Find the Security Mode field
Choose WPA2 - Personal
WPA Algorithmchoose AES
WPA Shared Keytype in your new password you will use to connect to your network
Click Save Changes and your router will now reboot. You will now need to enter in that same password (WPA Shared Key) when you first connect with your laptop to your wireless network Magoo
Are you speaking about router about router log in password or Wireless network password.
If you want to change the router log in password then you can go to Administration tab and change the log in password for router setup page. IF you want to change the wireless network security key WEP / WPA then you can change the wireless settings.
If you want to obtain the password or security on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.
You can also reset the router to its factory state but you need to keep in mind that all settings will be back to its default settings. To reset the router press and hold the small reset button at the back of the router using a Pen or a Paper Clip for 15-30 seconds.
If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.
The security code can be reset to factor defualt by pressing and holding the rest button for 5 seconds on the back of the router and waiting for the lights to stop flashing. password will reset to Admin.
