Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

My router encryption settings seem to have changed after a power outage. I am trying to reset the encryption settings by connecting to 192.168.1.1. I am using admin for the username and password, but cant connect and after the third entry I'm taken to an unknown site and receive an Access Denied message at the top of the page. Is there another way to accomplish this?

Try using the Linksys default settings:
Username: Leave Blank
Password: admin
Then you can change the wireless settings using the menu choices.
Good Luck

This can be caused by a number of issues most have to do with the router itself and not the tablet. First, let's make sure the router DHCP Server is not frozen so take the following steps:
Step 1: If the router is separate from the Cable or DSL Modem, power down the router/wireless, next power down the cable/dsl modem. Power up the cable/dsl modem wait 60 seconds then power up the router/wireless wait 2 minutes
Step 2: Try to connect to the wireless
Step 3: If you have a modem or wireless router supplied by Comcast, Verizon, AT&T or any major carrier, contact them asking them to walk you through resetting and rebooting and updating the firmware to the router/wireless.
Step 4: After the reset and update try to connect, if it fails move on
Step 5: Log into the wireless/modem - let's change the wireless encryption. Go to the wireless settings, change the wireless settings to WPA Personal and add any pass-phrase. Try to connect using the new pass-phrase.
Step 6: If you still can not connect, as a last resort switch the wirlesss encryption to WPA for testing. Try to connect, if this works contct the vendor and have the modem replaced.

Have the key but still can't connect to network


The encryption key maybe incorrect. I suggest you RESET the Linksys wireless router and then configure it again.

To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless 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.

Hello there Sir/Madam! My name is Alex and I work under FixYa.com expert team surveillance.

Solution for your problem you can still find at this adress.


Well, its noticeable that a lot of people complain about exactly that type of router "Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router". There is definitely problem with firmware upgrade, so I suggest you to press and hold reset button for 30 sec, to put back your x1 firmware, or if that doesn't help, contact your Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router contractor and/or your ISP, and ask them to downgrade your Router. Just to notify, encryption can't defect your connection at all, since all ports on router are always opened if wired for your host pc's :)

Hope this helped and/or advised you on your next move.Please rate my solution, thanks in advance. Wish you good day

My wifi doesn't connect to any routers but it connect to my laptop ad-hoc.Still i am not able to use internet through ad-hoc.I have tried restoring my iphone, reset and erase settings, reset network...


Ad-hoc is a computer to computer connection.
You need to change the wireless configuration to Access Point (Infrastructure) mode with encryption.

Your wireless card in your computer or laptop needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings eg. the SSID and encryption key
The encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

I have router and got to laptops connected to it just trying to add nother laptop to it that has got a belkiin wireless usb adapter and it wil not let me also i cannot rember my pass word for router


Reset your router to manufacturer's settings by pressing with a small pin the hole found at the rear of the router. It is labeled "reset".

When the router is reset to default setting, connect the router to a computer and visit http://192.168.1.1 (linksys router) or http://192.168.0.1 (d-link router) to configure it. By default, username = admin and password = <blank> or no password. If no password don't work, try the password "admin". So username = admin and password = admin.

You you reach the configuration field, you need to enter the configuration settings provided by your ISP to connect to their internet services. Most likely, you will be using a dynamic IP address (DHCP Enabled) for home users or a static IP for business users. But these information you can get from your Internet Service Provider.

Once you can connect to the internet, configure your wireless network in the router's configuration page to broadcast with encryption. Use WPA or WPA2 or the like in your encryption protocol. Make sure that you configure your laptop for WPA or WPA2 also for them to communicate.

When all is set, try connecting to the internet and try if your wireless router is broadcasting wifi internet.

When you reset the router the default setting for encryption is probably off. Hopefully you had encryption on in the old home - but now the wireless computers are still trying to connect using the key/encryption.

Cannot connect to wireless internet


How did you reset the wireless router back to the factory defaults?
Did you use the Reset button on the back of the D-Link?
The encryption setting is set in the router's wireless configuration.
After the router has been set to the factory default, connect a LAN cable to the wireless router and open IE browser and enter the configuration IP address (http://192.168.0.1) the default login = admin and the PW = blank (just press enter)
Then change to default password so it prevents anyone changing the router's wireless configuration.
The encryption default should be not be enabled.
Change the SSID so you and your guests can identify your wireless router.
You can enable encryption if you wish to prevent unauthorized access, but you need to advise your guests of the encryption key.
