Go to linksys.com and click on support and download the full user manual for your router. then find the homepage of the router IE http://192.168.0.1 and the default user name and password and go to the homepage and type in the user/pass to get to the settings of the router.
if you do not know the user/pass it may be because you changed it when you first set it up. you can reset it (also listed on the linksys site how to do this) but you may loose you settings for connecting to the net or keeping you computers connected to each other so reseting should be the last option used.
once in the homepage of the router you will be able to make any changes to settings you need even locking yourself out of the router and the net if you dont know what you are doing. the cd is used to do the bare minimum and in order to get you connected you can do a lot more in the routers pages than listed on the cd setup.

just remember if you make to many chages at once without testing to see if they work for you. you wont know what change broke or fixed your problem

How do i secure and place a password on this linksys unsecured wirerless router


Wireless Router


It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below. To get access, start your browser, and put 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1, or other address for your unit, into the ADDRESS bar (not search box) of your internet browser. Every unit has unique access login and passwords, some are admin with no password, some are admin and admin...seek access information from the website of the manufacturer of your unit.


Things to set:


Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page before you leave it, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.

1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.

2. Set a recognizable system ID.

3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping this information to bottom of the router. (Physical access is usually not the security issue.)

4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

I want to password protect my router


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to make you connection secure the you need to set a Network Key on your router and need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security You can select either WEP, WPA or WPA2 to make it secure and under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Generate a personalize key for your network.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

Lost security code for wireless linksys router


Hi alockklock2,

If you want to obtain the password or security on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.

You can also reset the router to its factory state but you need to keep in mind that all settings will be back to its default settings. To reset the router press and hold the small reset button at the back of the router using a Pen or a Paper Clip for 15-30 seconds.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

I lost the cd that came with my router (G-wireless WRT54G2). I managed to reset it and its working with ethernet cables but i want to go wireless with my laptop and playstation3 and secure it so no one can...


Good day,

You can use your Wireless Connection by enabling it in your router.
You can access your Linksys router by logging in to its webpage. Look at your routers manual for its default configuration in accessing your router.Most router use http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1

Username:
Password:

Should appear in your browser refer to your manuals deafault Username and Password most Linksys routers use:

username:admin
password:admin

you can enable your wireless connections in wireless settings page and don't forget to put password for your wifi for security, you can use WEP, WPA etc. so that no one can steal your internet through your wireless connection.

You can get the install program from Linksys http://www.linksysbycisco.com/APAC/en/support/WRT300N/download

There are a bunch of settings so I have included the highlights of what you want to address:

I have a laptop running 802,11 g/b and vista and I Cant connect to linksys wag160n wireless router(802,11 n). laptop sometimes recognises network but when I try to connect it wont. could you help ?


Hi, You cannot connect across wireless protocols. In other words to connect to 802.11 n you need an "n" adapter.

Now, the router should be backward compatible & provide wireless g/b but you may find that when you search for networks it will be listed as a seperate network name (from the same router)

Try searching for this other network. Your router documentation should advise you of its default name & any set up process

I need the wep code for my LINKSYS Router system. It is a WRT54G2 modeland I need that code so that I might enter my code for my XBOX360 LIVE. No one will help me. I have paid for the LINKSYS and XBOX why...


You wireless network must be secured
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
Is there any computer online using the router.
check the IP address on that computer.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.
