Here's a information page on routers and setups. http://www.comone.ca/Support/WirelessSecurity/tabid/80/Default.aspx
This is an emulator page for your router - it basically lets you walk thru the pages like a real router but it's online just to show you how it works. http://www.comone.ca/Support/WirelessSecurity/tabid/80/Default.aspx

Click the wireless tab at the top, then below click security tab, security mode click enable, then it will offer choices of the type of security, select one and the next window will ask for key information - wep is common and easy to use. Each time you select and change it, the old settings are erased.

Access linksys wireless-g wrt54g with Nook tablet


Change the wireless network name and then change the key.
Try to connect to the new wireless network and see if that works.
If not then you can try to upgrade the firmware of your Linksys router.
After upgrading the firmware, reset the router and reconfigure it.

Wpa # for wrt54g router


Login to your router by accessing its setup page from a browser. Enter 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 in the address bar (or whatever address you may have changed it to) and provide the username and password at the prompt (the default is a blank username field and "admin" (no quotes) in the password field).

Switch to the Wireless > Security Settings page and read / change the WPA key. You can read more about wireless security on your WRT54G, here.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

You have to enter the WPA share key. The router password is only to access the built in administration web facility. The WPA share key is the encryption key necessary for the Kindle to connect to your router.

I got new laptop and i want to conect with wireles but is asking for security key which i dont know where to check to find it. How can i do it/


All Linksys routers have a built-in web-based setup page that allows the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties.
NOTE: Before accessing the router’s web-based setup page, make sure the router is powered on and the computer is wired to one of the Ethernet ports on the router (1, 2, 3 or 4 ).

Accessing the Router’s Web-Based Setup Page
Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router’s IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router’s password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.

To setup or SEE the WPA Wireless Security on your Linksys router, follow the steps below:
Setting-Up the Wireless Router to Use WPA
Step 1:
Access the router’s web-based setup page. For instructions, see above
Step 2:
When the router’s web-based, setup page appears, click Wireless and select Wireless Security.
Step 3:
Select WPA Personal under the Security Mode drop-down menu.
NOTE: IF YOU ARE JUST CHECKING ON THE PASSWORD NO NEED TO GO ON JUST TAKE NOTE OF THE WPA SHARED KEY AND USE IT IN YOUR LAPTOP WHEN ASKED OF THE PASSKEY
Step 4:
Select TKIP on WPA Algorithms.
Step 5:
Enter your desired WPA Key on the WPA Shared Key field such as “MySecretKey.” This will serve as your network key whenever you connect to your wireless network.
NOTE: Do not give this key to anyone. This key will secure your wireless network. Leave Group Key Renewal to 3600 seconds

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
