Hot to use LINKSYS Router as an alternate wireless acces point

Hi, I want to use the LINKSYS Router as an alternate wireless acces point. I´ve already connected the Router to my Default Router via Ethernet and it got the 192.168.1.73 IP instead of the 192.168.1.1. My problem is when I try to acces the LINKSYS Router via http://192.168.1.73. It says "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". Is it possible to access de LINKSYS Router as an alternate wireless access point. Thanx

This is not a wireless repeater i do beleive this is what want. You need a router or gateway with this function. look at this product http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/products/WGA600N

    or if you have to be totally wireless this will expand your coverage http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/prod...

    i do beleive that my solution was at least helpful to you. I do this for a living and set up linksys routers most of my time. You cannot have two wrt54gs transmitting a wireless signal it is impossible like i said it is not a wireless repeater. you need a range expander. when you hook up two of these routers yes the one will be an access point but not a wireless one meaning you wil have to use ethernet cables on your second router for connection. i hope this explains it better my second link at my solution is the range expander. i hope you reconsider to change to at least helpful.

    if you can email me to clarify your setup. i see you connected both routers with a cable. is this what you want to do? if you can run a wire do this it will give 100mb/sec versus 54 mb/sec if you go wireless and have 100 % signal. but if you want to go and remove that wire we will have to set it up. email me like i said i am here to help.

    did you fix your problem?

    if you want to also hook into network wirelessly set them up seperately. do your access point first. connect it like you would with just one router. go into the settings (192.168.1.1) now go into the wireless sections and put in your wireless id and security type (use wpa 2 personal AES) and put in your passkey. and save all pages. unplug it and install in your other location. now take other router and do same thing with all same wireless ids and same exact security and passkey save all pages. but remember that you have to use ethernet cables on that second router like i said. im here to help improve that thanks for trying lol.

'I've forgotten the router password,' is a common problem. But first, which password do you need?
  1. If you want to login to your router, to view or change settings - you need the router login password.
  2. If you want to connect (say) a new laptop to your wireless internet connection – you need the network key. This is the encryption key used to secure your wireless signal. Windows asks for this key when you try to connect.
Here’s a rough guide to what to do in each case. For detailed instructions, check your manual. If you can't find a manual, follow the tip How To Find A Router Manual. (NB: You don't have to read the whole manual - just check a few details, as described in the tip).


1) Retrieving a lost network key - so you can connect (say) a new laptop to your wireless network:

i) Login to your router. Do this by entering http://192.168.0.1 or whatever is correct for your model, into a web browser. Enter your router username and/or password at the prompt.


If you don’t have these, see Step 2, ‘Retrieving a lost router password’.

ii) In the screen that you see, go to the section headed Wireless, Security, or similar. Every router is different, so you may have to hunt around. Key words to look for are Security, Wireless Settings, Encryption, WPA, (or WEP).

Your network key will be here. It might be labelled PSK, pre-shared key, WPA or WEP key, WPA-PSK etc – but that’s the one you need. Now you should be able to connect to your wireless network.

Tip: Write the network key on a label, and stick it to your router.


2) Retrieving a lost router username/password- so you can login to your router, to view or change settings:


i) First, see if there is a label on the base of your router, showing the correct username and password.

ii) Otherwise, try the defaults and see if they work. Common default usernames are admin, or blank (ie type nothing, just leave blank).

Some common default passwords are password, admin, 1234, sky (for UK Sky users), or blank (no password). Check your manual for this, or try a Google search. It’s important that you find the correct default password for your router.

iii) Defaults don’t work? You will have to resort to a hard reset.

Beware. If you perform a hard reset, your router will be back at factory defaults. Your router login password will then be the default, BUT you will normally lose all your router settings. If you have a combined modem/router you will also lose your internet connection, until you have set up your router again.

If you are very concerned about this, ask the person who set up your router to help you.

Otherwise, you can do it yourself . Every router and ISP is different, but if you have your ISP login details and your manual (see How To Find a Router Manual ) - you should be OK.

Your ISP’s website may also have info which will help you - why not take a look. Similarly, your router manufacturer’s website may offer easy install software, and setup tips, if you need them. Print off any online information you need before performing the reset.

iv) To reset - ensure you have a wired (ethernet) connection to your router, and that it is switched on. Find the router reset button, which may be an unmarked pinhole, often on the back of the router. Press and hold down the reset button as long as it takes to reset the router. This is typically 10 seconds or so (check the manual).

v) You can now use your default password to login to the router, and set up your details afresh.

I hope this tip helps you. Losing a password is a pain, and we've all done it. But - armed with your router manual - you will soon be up and running again.

Connecting to the acces point (router) but not to the internet


I had a similar problem and solved it this way: Go to Start > All Programs > (the name of your USB adapter). In that folder there should be a "manager" or some type of program. Run it. One of the settings should read "AP mode" or "Station mode". When I switched from AP to Station, suddenly a list of available networks popped up. And my problem was solved. Hopefully that will work for you too. GregM23

Reset to factory default


The router's admin page is http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 and the default password should be either "admin" or "password" without quotes. There should be a choice under "Setup" called "Factory Reset". That will erase the settings and reset it like new.

Alternatively, you can follow the procedure as given below on all the brands I've tried (Belkin, D-Link, Linksys)

1. hold the reset button for 30 seconds (don't release)
2. unplug the power (still holding reset) for 10 seconds
3. plug power back in (still holding reset)
4. hold reset for another 30 seconds - the lights will usually begin flashing in some odd pattern
5. release the reset button
6. wait 1 full minute or until the lights stop flashing
7. unplug the power for 10 seconds, just to do a reboot
8. verify the settings (e.g. SSID) are back to the defaults

Wireless network of one


As long as the router has a wireless capability then no.

The simle way to connect is as follows

wall jack -> modem -> router )))) wireless link (((( USB wifi -> PC

If you donot have a wifi router then you should either buy one or get a wireless acces point to plug int the router

assuming you already have everything workin then setting up the wirelsee part is relatively easy assuming you have the hardware.

I can offer more specific advice if required to set up if required

Password retrieval


There?s not much you can do. Try to put the router?s default password which is ?admin? (lower case) and then copy the settings so you can reconstruct them after the reset of the router. Hope it works good luck.
