Log on to your linksys router page and reset the security key to what ever you want.Just open internet explore and type 192.168.1.1 and when the sign in box appears and if you didn't set up a password Just type Admin for the user name and Admin for the password.

Im trying to hook up to linskys via my laptop and its asking me for the security key or pass phrase for linsky?


Hi Good day!! your linksys is password protected that's why its sending you a message to enter it's password, you need to enter the password of the router (linksys) if you want to access the router.. try this- username: admin password: (no password just leave it blank and then enter) that is the default password. hope it works for your linksys

The omly lock or security is the SSID name and the keys.A strong key is the best way to secure your router,ans a name (SSID) for let other users be sure where they are connected.

Login on to linsky


Under this condition you should connect the linksys router physically by LAN cable and that try to get connected with and reconfigure it properly as per your requirement. If still unable to solve the problem than kindly reset the unit to factory default by pressing the reset button.and that try to get connected with and reconfigure it properly as per your requirement.

Cant connect 2 laptops through linsky wrt54g is this possible


are you connecting the laptop hard wired or wirelessly?

for wired connection, just plug the ethernet cable from the router to the laptop and it should work fine.

for the wireless connection, check on the wireless network connection. for xp, click on start> control panel> network connections> right click wireless network connection> then click on view available wireless network> then select your network.. for secure wireless connection, type the security key then click connect. :-)

Inability to connect to Internet


The easiest solution would be to use an ethernet connection. A second problem is probably on most cable modems you can either use a USB connection OR an ethernet connection you cannoot use both at the same time.

Linsky wireless connection


Yes, you can still manually configure the router to setup a wireless security so that no one can use the wireless illegally and download files. What is the model no. of your router?

MY WIRELESS LINSKYS HOOKED UP NOT FINDING MODEM/CANNOT CONNECT


You don't use a modem to connect with a wireless router. Connect an ethernet cable between the laptop and the router to ensure that both are working. If this gives you an internet connection then the commonest problem is an incorrect wireless key. Reset the key on the router then cut and paste it into the wireless network setup in the Control Panel. Wireless drivers are frequently updated and you should check for a newer driver.

Linsky password


If you're after the default userR/password to log in to the admin-intaserface on the router it's usually ussername=root and password=admin

If it's the wep-key it's asking for there are software that can fetch this from your computer, but it's probably just as quick and easy to change the wep-key in the router and set up your writeless computers with that key.
