Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router
MY LINKSYS WRT150N IS HOOKED UP TO ONE COMPUTER AND IS WORKING FINE BUT I HAVE 2 OTHER LAP TOPS AND A PS3 HOW CAN I GET WIRELESS SIGNAL ON THEM FROM THE LINKSYS
The way you worded the question, suggests a bit of confusion that you may have "My Linksys WRT150N is hooked up to one computer". Although once working it may be convenient to think of it that way, the router makes the network available and sets the rules for the network. Then, it is up to the individual computers to connect to it by complying with those rules.
I'm using a WRT160N, so I have to reference it, but I believe the tabs and options on the WRT150N are very close to the same thing. First, take a look at the router to see what it's rules are. The default address for the router is http://192.168.1.1. Type that into your browser (or copy/paste it). You'll get a signon screen. The default is user name left blank and password is admin. On some you need to type admin into both fields.
That will put you in the setup screen. Look halfway down the screen to Maximum Number of Users and make sure it is large enough - 3 would work for the network you describe, but within reason, a bigger number (say, if friends stop by) is good. I use a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 50.
Then click the Wireless tab (the second tab) and look at the settings. For Network Mode, I recommend Mixed. If you happen to have selected Wireless N only and your other systems are Wireless G, they can't connect. Make sure you have a network name. It doesn't matter what it is as long as (1) you know what it is and (2) it is different from any neighbors who happen to be in range.
Then go to the Wireless Security sub tab. See what your settings are on this page. I recommend WEP, 104/128 bit, and a complex hexidecimal key in Key 1. Either just note the values that are there, or set them the way I suggest.
Go to the next sub tab, Wireless MAC Filter. This lets you set up which PCs can connect to the router and which can't by MAC (a unique identifyer). I recommend disabling this by clicking disabled at the top of the page. That should handle the understanding of the setup on the router side. There's other things that can be set, but most people just leave them alone.
Then for your other computers and your PS3, go into their wireless setup and set the values that you now know are in the router. If you run into trouble doing this, post again with what you did and what happened.
