Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)
I have Linksys WRT54GS. If I have password off it works fine with my Laptop with a wireless-b adapter card. If I turn on WEP 64 or 128 bite it will not work unless I turn it off then connect and then turn it back on.
It use to work fine with the old B router and with this newer g router with the same Laptop until I moved from Mass. to Florida Same IP Comcast.
I first tried resetting router upgraded to 1.06.3 from 1.06.1 fw.
Settings = Mixed SSID ********_**** Ch=6 Enable WEP 1 128 bits 26 hex dig password = 8 letters and 8 numbers no spaces Mac filter = dis.
Advanced settings are all defaults. Acces Restictions = dis.
I dont have an answer but a question and a suggestion. Why are you messing with it if it works?
I suggest set all at default and then if you are concerned about security, go into your setup and turn off "broadcast" so others cannot see your router.
If you need more ... go into each device, get the MAC address for each. Go back to router setup and allow only those MAC addresses that you have on your network.
Im not a pro ... I have never been a fan of router encription. There are simpler ways to get security in my view.
I hope this helps you

I would agree with miller in only one respect and that is that "if it ain't broke don't fix it"
As for security I disagree most strongly and would suggest that if you only have wireless B then consider an upgrade to at least wireless G and the security that can come with that.
No security is a sure way to attract undesirable use of your wireless with OR without SSID on.
At the very least try to get WEP up and running.
In some US states users can be liable for unauthorised use of their INTERNET afaik.
So lets say a hacker uses your wireless and its not secure and they get traced though you. Who do you think would get that loud knock on the door ?
