Simply reset it by push reset button. Follow this instruction would help: http://technicallyeasy.net/2008/01/how-to-reset-linksys-wrt54g-wireless/
After that, you can just simply change your Network Key (WPA/WEP) as your wish :)
Hope it'll help

I've bought a Router DLink DI-524, but I don't know how install on 4 PCs with Windows XP Professional, Windows Vista Home Basic, Windows Millennium Edition and Windows XP Home Edition operation systems. The problem is that when I start the installation, by CD, at the first step, it asks me to connect the Ethernet cable to the Wap Port of the router and to the Ethernet port of the PC, to test the connection, and it tests ok, then it asks me to connect the cable to the port 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 of the router and to the Ethernet port of the PC, and signs me the connection failed. I've an Ethernet cable only and an Adsl Internet Explorer 6.0 connection

Lkrawlings:
Can you go into your router from IE? like http://192.168.x.x, then from this configuration page of your router you can find what key you had put into your router. Make sure the type of security you are using like WEP, WPA, PSK, WPA2 etc. This key should match on your desktop or laptop machine to gain connection to your router.

If you are unable to find your key like this then:

You could refresh your router to factory defaults by pressing for 5 seconds, you will find this hole at the back of your router. try going again into your router like I said above and make up any other key.
Hope that helped!

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.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Can't use home wifi on iphone


How many wired and wireless computers or devices do you have?
How many are conencted to the wireless network?
How many are actually able to access Internet through wireless connection?
If your wireelss network is secured then make sure that you have the correct wireless network key.
If nothing is working then I think you should try to reset and reconfigure Linksys router.
Create a new wireless network and then try to connect to the new wireless network

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router .
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then connect 1 computer to the router and open the router set up page. Once you open the router set up page, you will be able to find the wireless network key.
Use that password to connect to the wireless network

Where do I find the network key for my linksyswrt150N?


This is located under the wireless settings on your linksys. This is something you would have set up when installing the router. If you don't remember or it is confusing.. Change it. I usually use the KTIP security because you can use a normal passphrase that is easy to remember. Hope this helps

Unable to connect ipod touch to home network


Sounds like an I.P. problem. If set to "Dynamic", try "Static" IP. Had a similar problem with my Linksys wireless camera. It worked...than it didn't. Sounds eerily similar.

Wireless router connection problems


Assuming "cannot connect to linksys router directly" means you cannot connect to a Wireless Lan managed by Linksys router,
1) try to connect new computer to LinkSys Router using a Lan cable, add new PC to your network.
2) recover protocol (WEP or WPA) and Key of WLAN (Passphrase or Key: TKIP or AES) either from other PC on same network either from your Router.
3) If you missed actual key you must connect to router and reset it to a new key to be eventually used for every connected device.
Call for detail on this possibility

Linksys wireless adapter and linksys wrt54g2 router not seeing each other


its possible that the wireless card does not have the correct wireless settings.

Open the linksys wireless monitor on your wife's laptop.
Go to the profiles tab, highlight the default SSID then click on edit at the bottom. It will search for the wireless network, from the list of networks that it will show you, click the name of your wireless network, in if the network is secured you will be ask to put in your network key. Then click connect. Then it will say that you profile was successfully configured. then click connect to network. It will take you back back to the screen where you saw no association to the access point, check if you will now get a new message. On that same screen click the more info button at the upper left hand side. Check the IP address it should be 192.168.1.x. If you have that IP then you can test if you will be albe to get online.

if you still have any problem just reply to this post.

Cant connect to internet from laptop


The network key is stored in the router, and your manual will tell you how to access it.
If you don't have access to the router's web page, you'll need to reset the router and start over.
