Setup your router in private connection, the network asking for password or put a password by open the firmware of your router, if he have it. with this only can hook and have internet to connect it.
And also read the manual for further instructions on how to put a password.

Cannot remember my w-f password


If you lose or forget your password, you can usually get it from your modem or your Internet service provider.
  • 1 Look on your modem. This is the box that your Internet service provider gave you when your Internet service was installed. Some Internet Service providers put your wireless password directly on the box along with your user-name. A modem may or may not be separate from a wireless router, which sends out the wireless signals. If you have two boxes and are unsure which is which, look at both.
  • 2 Call your Internet service provider if you cannot find a password on the modem. You can also try online customer service through your service provider's website if you are able to get Internet access apart from your wireless connection.

  • 3 Talk to a customer service representive and ask to retrieve your password. You may be required to change it. Be prepared to provide security information that the service provider has on file, such as your Social Security number, phone number, address or another personal security question.

    I have lost the security code and have a new laptop, how do i set it up to work


    Hi!

    If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router.
    Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.

    If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command
    ipconfig /all

    it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.

    If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.

    Hope it helped,

    We're adding another coputer to the system at our house. How do we set up wireless on this computer. We already have wireless on the original computer. Do we need certain numbers to set this up? I'm...


    You must have a wireless adapter installed in your new PC. Assuming there is already one, then you need to identify what type of security you use with your wireless router.
    If you don;t have any security installed, then you can just search for wireless access points and then you should be able to connect to your router. The danger with not having security is others can also easily connect to your router and network and possibly hacked to your systems and also eat up on your internet bandwidth.
    The easiest security is to have a password installed before you can access the router. When you search for wireless, you just choose your wireless and then you must know the password so you can access it. You can save the password so don't have to do it everytime you connect. There's still a possibility though that someone can hacked your password, but not likely in a regular environment.

    Another option is to register the MAC address of all of your PC in the router so only your own PCs can connect. This is a little bit more technical though so you may want to hire a tech for this.

    Does anyone know how to secure my internet site. At this point anyone can access


    You'll need to go into the router's webpage. Check your operation manual for the default webpage address and access login/password.

    Within the main menu you should be able to find security settings for your wireless configuration.

    Passwords


    If you don't know the WEP key, then the security is working (ironic, isn't it?)

    If you want the Wii online, you will need to log into the router's interface and disable encryption entirely or (depending on the router) simply change the security key.

    Bear in mind that if you change the key, all the other wireless devices will no longer work until you update them with the proper key.

    Hope this helps - be sure to rate :)

    Not able to get internet service


    So your wireless network is secured, so really before you can get online with it wirelessly you need to put in the correct security key which is calle a WEP/WPA key, since you can access the internet when connected wired to the router what you need to do here is to access the router setup page and get the security key that you need.
    This are the steps to do that:
    1.connect the computer to the router with a wired
    2.on the address bar type 192.168.1.1 it will ask you for a username and password leave the username blank and password is admin, if admin did not work try typing you commonly use password.
    3.if you're already on the setup page of the router, just go to wireless tab and there you will see a wireless security sub tab
    4.just go to wireless security then get the security from there
    5.then connect to your wireless network using that key

    If the password didn't work you may need to reset the router adn reconfigure it back I will advice you to call Linksys tech support so thet can walk you through with that , this is the number 800-3267114 they are open 24hrs...

    Hope that helps.........
