Re: smc2804wbr barricade G

I have the same router model. After 3 years of use , all 4 ports wont auto-negotiate anymore..SMC customoer care no longer supports old models and u must pay for advice.
You can manualy set the speed ( its a temporary fix). Go into network settings ,properties of your network card . go into configure ( the network card). Select Advance tab, choose Link Speed Duplex Mode , itll give a list of Speed settings, by default its in AutoNegotiate. Work your way down the speed setting list until the defunct router is happy with the manual speed setting selected. There must be a chip inside the router that selects the speed , it probably burns out after awhile, who knows , I tried re-installing firmare of all versions , no go. Ill just buy a different brand router next time

I want to change my security setting on my network so that my psp will support it. How can I do it without the disk


Welcome to Fixya. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type The Default password is smcadmin. Password is case sensitive. Click on Wireless and then select Security. You can now change the security settings of your router. You can also refer to the manual below.

How to secure and setup a password for my SMC barricade G smc2804wbr router using a toshiba labtop. I do not have the intallation CD drive. please help

You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually or into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.
Let me know how you make out.

SMC2804WBR-G Cannot connect Wireless

Have you checked the encryption type, and verified that you have set aes or tkip correctly to match your router? That would be my first guess.
My second guess is that you have mistyped your passphrase or have a trailing space in one place and not in the other or a capital letter and a small letter or some other typo. Can any computers or phones connect to the wi-fi with wpa on? You could try WEP, even though it is laughably weak, since the key is in hex and not therefore misinterpretable, just to see whether any encryption will work.
But my first guess is encryption type (assuming that it is not detecting it, like my cellphone and PS/3 do).
