Want to disable pop-up window asking for password & username



Linksys Wireless-G Model wrt54GS

I am getting a pop-up menu "please type in user name & password" many times daily (when I'm working in Outlook). How do I fix this problem? I believe when the router was first installed, it automatically gave me a password and I don't know what it is although there are ******* in password box.


I called my ISP and they said this was a "router" problem.

Update your router's firmware, then reset all your data on it. It should get back to work normally.

I was given a router but i dont have install disk linksys model wrt54g how can i install it

no install disk is needed
Connect the Router (Up link to modem, Port 1 to computer) Boot computer, you should get an IP address in the range of Open a browser (IE/Firefox etc) on the address line type press enter You will be prompted for a username and password. Leave the username blank, password= admin Once logged into the router, you can set the wireless settings then save and then you can connect via wireless. For Wireless security codes, you can use the default suggested by the router, or as I recommend, use an old 10 digit phone number as WPA key 8009993355 for example as it is generally hard to guess but easy to remember.
here is more info if needed

I want to create a secure network password for my wireless router

The steps I'm about to teach you is to create a WPA Personal Network Key to prevent random users from accessing and altering your network.

Windows XP:

Go to Start > Run. Type in cmd and press enter. A black box will appear with some text in it. Type in ipconfig and press enter. Some more text will appear. Look for the words Default Gateway. Next to them will be an IP Address. Type this IP address into your browser.

A diolouge box will appear, asking you for a username or password. If you have not configured this already, leave the username field blank and type in the password field admin. THe Linksys router configuration page will display.

Click the tab taht says Wireless. Click the subtab that says Wireless Security. In the drop down box that says security mode, select WPA Personal. Make sure where it says WPA Algorithms, TKIP is selected. In the WPA Shared Key box, type in a password that you are sure you will remember, or write it down. When finished, selected the button that says Save Settings.

Your network is now secure with the key you have made. The default SSID (or network username) is called linksys.

Trying to turn a Linksys WRT54GS into a hub

  1. If you want to set the router to work only as a switch with wireless access point, you may need to get into its setup page and adjust some settings.
  2. Using a computer that is wired directly to one of the router's Ethernet ports, launch IE and type It is the default IP address of the router. Then it will open a window, asking for a username and password. By default, there is no username and the password is admin.
  3. Once you're in the router's User Interface, look for a sub tab called "Advanced Routing" under the main tab SETUP. Then set router mode to "Router" instead of Gateway. In some router's, the choice there is NAT enable or disable. If it is the one showing there instead of Router mode, then set NAT to disable. Click Save settings which is located at the bottom portion of the screen.
  4. Then click on "Basic Setup" and then disable DHCP server. Save the settings then.
  5. Then your modem now will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router.
Hope this helps!

My router is a wrt54gs wireless-g,but it is wired ether cable.

  1. Make sure that your game console is wi-fi/wireless ready.
  2. Check the wireless settings (SSID, Wireless Security) which are configured in your router. To do that you need to access your router's setup page.
  3. Launce IE from the computer connected to the router and type which is the default IP address of Linksys routers. Then, it will open a window asking for a username and password. By default, there is no username. Type admin on the password field.
  4. Once you're in the router's user interface, click WIRELESS tab. Take note of the SSID or wireless network name.
  5. Then, click on a sub tab called Wireless Security. You will find there the type of security enabled in the router as well as the security key.
  6. These settings such as SSID and wireless security should be configured to your game console in order for it to connect to your wireless network through the Linksys router.
  7. Hope this helps!
