Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I got this router 3 years ago and set it up with an old laptop. I now have a new laptop and I must have set it up with security and do not know what I set it up as. I am trying to connect my new laptop and it's asking me for the wep key. What can I do to unclock/reset this if I do not know my wep key?
It's really easy to find your wep key if you can log into the router page. Usually the router is defaulted to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1
You put that number after the http:// in a web browser and it should ask you for a username and password. Either enter the username and password you set it up for, or if you didn't set one it's probably admin admin. Now there should be a page with a bunch of settings. Near the top click on the tab that say wireless, and under that tab there should be something called security. The WEP key you have set up should be in here. The WEP key is not the passcode, just wanted to point that out. It's most likely under something by the name of key 1 or something to that affect. That should take care of your WEP key problem. I would personally recommend upgrading to a wireless G router if the other devices on your network can use G. Wireless G is much faster and also allows the use of wireless B devices on it. Hope I helped. If you need more help just ask, I might be able to get some screenshots up or direct you to a manual.

This is an old router. Look at the power light. You must have a STEADY power light. RESET the BEFW11s4 by pushing the reset button for 30seconds. Unplug the power of the BEFW11s4 for 30 seconds. Connect pc to port 2 or 3. pc should get an ip of 192.168.1.x. If you are getting this ip that means that the pc is already detecting the router.
