Try to connect with your phone no.. with area code firs and without any space and dashes..continuous 10 digit no..if not..
go to other pc, which is working..
open a new internet explorer page and in the address bar enter Http://
it will prompt for a user name and a passwd..
do not type any thing for the username leave it blank, for passwd enter admin..
you would be in the linksys setup page , click wireless tab,
you would see all your w/ls information..
below the wireless tab in the blue bar you would see a wireless security sub tab in the blue bar.. you would find the key in key 1

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Dont no my wpa pass phrse

It's common for us to forget passwords the problem is when you need them:) It is simple to correct this problem but you need to connect directly to the router via a hardwire (ethernet cable). If you haven't changed the default IP setting on the router your going to do the following. Through your Internet Browser your going to type in the IP address of the Dlink router in the address bar. This default IP is You will be prompted for username and password. By default that is Admin and password blank (nothing). Once logged in you will choose from the Dlink menu Setup then Wireless Settings. At this point keep it simple use the wireless wizard to re-create a new passprase for your WPA. By the way update your laptop as well. Some old wireless drivers don't work properly with WPA passprase and make it apprear your passphrase is incorrect when its fine. Good Luck.
