The wireless settings of the Linksys needs to e configured and the wireless card in the computer needs to be configured with the Linksys wireless router's settings so it can communicate with the Linksys wireless router.
To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

The internet works but my linksys wrt54g ver.6 just stopped working. It is like it is not passing the signal along. I didn't know if there was a way to reset it and reformat it. I did not know if this was...


Remove the power cord for 1 minute and plug back in. If problem exists, the reset button is located to the left of the Ethernet jack. Depress for 3 seconds and release. The router should reset but will need to be reprogrammed.

Frimware Upgrade


Apparently not, but I'm guessing you already knew that.

Look carefully at the label and the firmware installed in your router. The 1.02.5 is listed for 5 and 6 only and version 8 is for 8 only. There is no 7 listed, so it was either a special run or there is just no firmware upgrade for it yet. It must have been perfect :-)
