Thanks Justin

Well more then likely someone reset your router. now securing it again will depend on the model but typically from the internet explorer window type in the address bar 192.168.1.1 it will prompt you for a username and password username by default is "admin" and leave password field blank and click ok. this is for most models.(if you are not able to access this you are going to need to find the manual or get then model # and goto linksys.com to find the default password for that model"
from here click on "wireless" at the top then click on "wireless security" here you can choose the security mode either wep or wpa enter your encryption key click save settings and now your router is protected again.
If you still are having problems write back the the model # and I or someone else will be glad to help you.

How do i setup my wireless linksys model wcg200?


The wireless settings that you need to take note of are:
a. SSID - this is the name of your wireless network
b. SSID Broadcast - an indication if your SSID is showing on the list of networks available
c. Wireless Security - serves as the password for your wireless network

To check the wireless settings on the Linksys router, follow the steps below.
Checking the Wireless Settings on the Linksys Router
Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here. If you are using a Mac computer to access the web-based setup page, click here.
Step 2:
When the router's web-based setup page appears, click Wireless.
4678-009.png Step 3:
Look for Wireless Network Name (SSID). If it's still set to "linksys", change it to something unique then click 6-4680.jpg NOTE: Take note if SSID Broadcast is Enabled or Disabled. If it is Enabled, it means your SSID will show among the list of wireless networks available when any wireless device will search for a network to connect to. If it is Disabled, it will not be visible.

4678-003.png
Step 4:
Click the Wireless Security subtab and take note of the current Security Mode.
4678-001.png
If Security Mode is set to WEP:
4678-007.png If Security Mode is set to WPA:
4678-013.png You can change your WPA shared key if you want to personalize it. It should be a minimum of eight and a maximum of 63 characters long.

How do i make my unsecured network secure? using linksys WRT54G v8


Access the setup page of router by typing 192.168.1.1 in the address bar.

By default, leave the username blank and the password is admin.

Once on the setup page, go to Wireless. Under Basic Wireless settings, change the default SSID Linksys into any name. This will allow you to easily determine which is your wireless network.

Then go to Wireless Security and enable WEP. Type a passphase and click the generate button. Take note of the Network key. Remember that you will use this network key to all wireless computers.

On your wireless computer, view the available wireless networks or site survey. Select your SSID and enter the network key to connect.

I hope this helps!

Having problem connecting wii to internet. get error code 51030. unable to access point. please confirm ssid.i'm using static ip and have go throug all the steps. i'm also using a new router by linksys,...


Error Code: 51030 The only wireless network within range of your Wii console is not configured or is not compatible with the Wii.

  • If you are getting this error after completing a system update, this is usually because the console resets to using the first connection slot after an update. There are two things you can do:

    • If you know which connection file you were using before, you can select that connection file, then select "Use this connection" to change that to the default. You will need to do this each time they download an update.


    • If you don't know which connection file you are using, or if you would prefer not to update the active connection file each time, try to clear, and then re-create your connection setting in slot one before doing the remaining troubleshooting.


  • Check to see if the router you are using is a known to be incompatible. Click here to view our list. If your router is known to be incompatible, we recommend using a different router if possible.

Linksys WRT150N


Hi there,

I only have 3 suggestions.

1st one is to make sure the ssid is not similar to other routers you are using on your profile. ie.(change it to a unique name)

2nd is to make sure you check the box that says broadcast your ssid.

3rd check to make sure you select the router as an access point and not adhoc or infrastructure option. Finally you can try to change the channels eg. i like channel 3 b/c it doesnt interfere with any phone lines.

good luck

smeags.
