    when u tried typing the ip address you need to be connected to the wireless router. U might need the password which you can get it from Linksys. com it has good advise for their services and equipment.

I recently moved in with my mother and she bought a LINKSYS RANGEPLUS for her computer. I have a Ralink USB to give my computer the ability to log into WIFI. It shows the network my mom set up but says...

you need to log into the router and you can change the settings there. For most linksys products in Internet Explorer open and in the Address Bar type in:
Then you will be prompted for a username and password usually: Username: linksys Password: admin

Once in the router click on Wireless Settings then Wireless Security.

I recently bought a linksys wireless router i've

Make sure your wireless feature is turned on on the computer. There may be a switch on the edge of the computer somewhere, you don't say what kind of computer it is.

Find the wireless connection wizard on your computer and run it. Find it in your network folder in the control panel.

If this is too much, post a comment to this question and we will back up and start over.

BTW, if your laptop has a ethernet outlet (looks like a big phone jack), you can wire your laptop to your router.

I want to help you with this problem

Connecting a brother hl2170 wirless printer to a linksys wrt54g

Take note all the wireless settings of the router first. Now go to the printer and Press Menu/Settings, look for wireless setup wizard. It should find the network, highlight it and connect. If it asks you for the network key, type your wireless network key. It only allows WPA-Personal(TKIP) and WEP. If you have WPA2 or AES, it will not connect
