How to log into mybrouter

Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Broadband Router
  1. Begin setup of your Linksys Wireless Router by first plugging in the power. Give it 10 seconds or so to initialize and then plug an ethernet cable into your wall jack and into the port on the back of the router marked Internet. Next get another ethernet cable and plug one end into your laptop and the other into one of the ports labeled 1-4 on the router. Your computer is now properly connected to the router to begin its setup and configuration.
  2. Next open a web browser window on the connected computer and type into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Enter admin for both the username and password.
  3. You should see the Setup page shown below

Router shows a strong signal but when i connect i get a message "no internet access"

1. Using a computer that is plugged into the router directly with a network cable, open a web browser.

2. In the "Address Bar" type and press Enter.

3. A box should appear asking for a "User Name" and a "Password". Leave the "User Name" field empty, and type your WRT54G router password into the "Password" field (the default "Password" is admin) and click the OK button or press [Enter].

4. The WRT54G "Setup" page should now appear. Click onto the Wireless page.

5. When the "Wireless" page loads, you should be on the Basic Wireless Settings sub-section.

6. Look for the "Wireless Channel" option. The default channel is set to "6 - 2.437GHz". Change it to either "1 - 2.412GHz", or "11 - 2.462GHz".

7. Click on the Save Settings button toward the bottom of the page to save changes. Click Continue when prompted to reload the page.

8. The channel of your WRT54G has now been changed. Restart your wireless computers so that they can automatically connect using the new channel.

9. If you still experiencing interference using channels 1, 6, or 11, try switching the router to the other channels as well (2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10) and find one that captures a good connection.

How do i make my unsecured network secure? using linksys WRT54G v8

Access the setup page of router by typing in the address bar.

By default, leave the username blank and the password is admin.

Once on the setup page, go to Wireless. Under Basic Wireless settings, change the default SSID Linksys into any name. This will allow you to easily determine which is your wireless network.

Then go to Wireless Security and enable WEP. Type a passphase and click the generate button. Take note of the Network key. Remember that you will use this network key to all wireless computers.

On your wireless computer, view the available wireless networks or site survey. Select your SSID and enter the network key to connect.

I hope this helps!

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

I lost wireless internet when i connect internet from my modem to computer it works but the router shows no internet the computer picks up the router and the computer says it is connected wirless but not

Did you at one time have internet? Another thing that it could be is that your modem is going out. I would test the modem and see if it works, then connect to then try connecting it back to the router and restarting both your modem and router. And finally it may be actually be disconnected in the setup so look at your setup on the setup screen by opening internet explorer and typing then configure your router's connection one more time.

Setting up a WAP54G as a wireless repeater with a WRT54G

Requirements for WAP54G & WRT54G Repeater Mode function: * WRT54G: Firmware 2.02.2 or higher * WAP54G: Firmware 2.06 or higher Go to to download the latest firmware upgrades for both devices. . Accessing the Router?s Setup Page: Open a Web Browser (either Internet Explorer or Netscape). 1. Type the IP Address of the Router into the Address Bar ( is the default IP Address). 2. Click GO or press the [Enter] key. The User Name and Password prompt will appear. 1. Leave the User Name field blank. 2. Type admin in for the Password (the default Password). 3. Click OK or press the Enter key. The Router?s Setup page will open: * Click on the Status Tab. * Click on the Wireless sub tab. Write down the Wireless MAC Address and the Channel number values located on this page. If the Encryption Function is Disabled, go to the WAP54G Repeater Setup section below. If Encryption Function is Enabled: Note: WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is not yet compatible with wireless repeater mode. You must use WEP Encryption if you wish to use security options with this configuration. To gather WEP encryption information, click on the upper Wireless tab, then the Wireless Security sub tab. Write down the Passphrase. WAP54G Repeater Setup Be sure that you have the WAP54G plugged directly into one of the WRT54G?s numbered ports for the duration of the setup. Accessing the WAP54G?s Setup Page: Open a Web Browser (either Internet Explorer or Netscape). 1. Type the IP Address of the WAP54G into the Address Bar ( is the default IP address). 2. Click GO or press the Enter key. 3. The User Name and Password prompt will appear. 4. Leave the User Name blank. 5. Type in admin for the Password (the default password). 6. Click OK or press the [Enter] key. The WAP54G?s Setup page will open. 1. Set the Channel value to the same channel as the WRT54G router that was obtained from earlier steps. 2. If WEP encryption was enabled on the WRT54G: * Select Enable for the Wireless Security option. * Click on the Edit Security Settings button and enter the same Passphrase as the one of the WRT54G router that you recorded. Click Generate to populate the WEP key fields. * Click Save Settings to save your changes and close the encryption window. Click Save Settings to save your changes on the Setup page. 3. Next, click on the AP Mode tab. * Select the Wireless Repeater option. * Enter the WIRELESS Mac Address from the WRT54G that you recorded. (Disregard the fact that the page asks to ?Enter the LAN MAC ADDRESS?). Click Save Settings to save your changes. Close your web browser. You can now place the WAP54G Access Point in another nearby location (with its power adapter plugged in) so that it can repeat the wireless signal that it receives from the WRT54G. Notes: * The ?SSID? of the WAP54G does not have to be the same as the WRT54G. This can be used for initial configuration; using a different SSID will enable testing of network connectivity, and will show that the WRT54G is associated with the WAP54G. * If MAC Filtering is configured on the WRT54G, no extra configuration is needed. Wireless clients will still need to be added the MAC Filter list of the WRT54G, but the WAP54G does not have to on the list.
