Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
Need to remove block from Lingsys wireless Router.
If you prefer model specific, exact instructions for your particular router, go to:
Provide the model, version etc. and follow links to the type of info you need.
If you need only generic directions, you can follow these. Since there are many different flavors of Linsys Wireless Routers, there are variations on how to get access to the places below.
Open a browser on a computer that has a wired connection to the router. This may be http://192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1 or even 192.168.2.1 if left at the factory default settings. If you changed the default or can't get in a reset * may be needed. See the caution about reset below before attempting.
When connecting, you'll be asked for your username and password. If left at the factory setting, the username is blank password is "admin", of course, if you changed it - enter the proper values.
Look for the Wireless or Wireless Security Tab. The info needed to connect wirelessly consists of:
1) SSID (This is the "name" of your network or network ID)
2) Encryption Type (WEP, WPA, etc.)
3) Encryption Key (This is a combination of numbers 0 - 9 and letters A - F that you choose or are generated by a phrase of your choosing)
All the information for these variables that are stored in the router *must* be set exactly in the notebook wireless properties, otherwise it will not connect. If the SSID is set to "Do not broadcast SSID", it may help to enable SSID broadcast so that the network can be detected. Only when the network is detected, you will automatically be prompted to provide the encryption information. After the connection is made, you can set the SSID back to "Do not broadcast SSID" if desired.
* If the reset button on the router must be pressed, note the connection type on the setup page of the router. Copy any username, password and ISP data first.
