Linksys routers have a reset button that can be pressed with a paper clip.  Once reset, all of your settings will go back to default and your username and password will be reset to  admin for both.  Best of luck.

By the way, to access your settings, you can go here:

The user name is blank, and the password is admin.

It is asking for an access code to an access point . What is that?


Wireless networks can be secure or unsecure. Anyone can connect to an unsecure site simply by searching for available sites and choosing an unsecure one to connect to. There are inherit risks associarted with unsecure sites and you should NEVER do any financial or highly personal transactions on an unsecure network. Secure networks require a password (access code) to complete connection. This code is provided by the owner/administrator of the network. If you are allowed to connect to such a network, you should already be aware of the code. Otherwise you are basically not invited to the party.

I want to secure an unsecured linksys router


Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

How do i make my unsecured network secure? using linksys WRT54G v8


Access the setup page of router by typing 192.168.1.1 in the address bar.

By default, leave the username blank and the password is admin.

Once on the setup page, go to Wireless. Under Basic Wireless settings, change the default SSID Linksys into any name. This will allow you to easily determine which is your wireless network.

Then go to Wireless Security and enable WEP. Type a passphase and click the generate button. Take note of the Network key. Remember that you will use this network key to all wireless computers.

On your wireless computer, view the available wireless networks or site survey. Select your SSID and enter the network key to connect.

I hope this helps!

How do I make my connection secure to the internet? I have linksys wireless-G 2.4 GHz broadband router. The router is all hooked up but I believe the current connection is unsecured.


When you connected, did it ask you for a password? If not then it's obviously unsecured. Here's how to fix that... i have the same router.
On XP... open internet explorer... in the address bar, type in: 192.168.1.1

On vista.... click start menu...click on network...right click on router and select properties. Next, click on the "Network Device" tab at top of the new window. You will then see "Device Webpage"... click on the ip address to the right of that underlined in blue. It should ask you for a password... if you haven't set one manually the user is admin and the password is also admin. I recommend changing that to a manual password ASAP. Ok, after logging in, now you have the router's set up page in your web browser.
To make it secure:
On the set up page you now have open... you have a few selections that act like tabs: Setup, Wireless, Security, Access Restrictions, etc... Click on Wireless. After clicking on that, you have some tabs underneath wireless you can click on now.
Those selections should be: Basic wireless settings, Wireless security, Wireless MAC Filter, etc... Click on Wireless Security. There you should see disabled on the first drop down. Pick a WEP, WPA or whatever you prefer. I personnally use WEP with 64bit 10 hex and for the password, i use a 10 digit number.
After you have set up your password and security, click save settings at the bottom. After it's done processing the save, you can close the web browser. You are good to go now.
By the way, I recommended changing your password to access the router's set up page. Make absolutely sure you save that username/password in a safe location. If you forget it, there is nothing linksys can do to help you. I know from experience unfortunately.
Hope all this helped... Good Luck

Security


Till the time you put a access code for the wireles it would show it as a unsecure connection.You can change this by accessing the router page.Just type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of internet explorer.Than it would ask you for username and password.Its ussually admin and the password field blank.Than go to wireless settings and the security to WEP.than you can put a password of either 5 or 10 digits.U can put your phone # which would be easy to remember and than just save the setting.Next time when you would try to connet to it than it would ask you to put the access code and will show up as secure connection.
I hope that helps
