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.

(http://192.168.1.1)
3. Enter the router setup, login and password (the default login = admin
and default PW = admin)
4. Go to set/change password and 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.

How can I know my router's security password?


Not quite clear as to your problem. Are you trying to access the web-based configuration page for the router (for which you need an administrator password)? Or are you trying to make a wireless connection to the Internet via the router (for which you need the wireless security key)?

Those are two separate passwords, and you may be able to retrieve them both. The administrator password would be stored in the computer that was used to configure the router. The security key should be in the computer which configured the router, as well as any computer which made a wireless connection to the router.

If the passwords are stored, you should be able to retrieve them by installing some additional software.

For the computer that configured the router, download and install this program:

For a laptop that connected to the router, download and install this program:

When I try to use my wireless laptop, the router isn't working. It asks for a password - I don't know mine?


When you installed the router, you provided a password/passphrase for connecting to your wireless network.
Apparently you didn't write this down or someone else set up the router.
If you don't have access to the admin console on the router either, you'll have to do a factory reset of the router to allow you to set it all up all over again.
This time, make a note of your passwords.

I have lost the installation cd to my linksys router and I need software to change the wep password. I cant seem to remember what I have set it to before.


You can know your password without disk too. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Cannot connect to the router lost the password


There are two passwords for the router: the WEP/WPA password, which lets you connect to it wirelessly; and the admin password, which lets you change the configuration. If you have lost the WEP/WPA password but know the admin password (or haven't reset it from its factory default), you can connect a temporary cable between your router and your computer, and use the Easy Install Wizard or the manual configuration steps (see manual) to change the WEP/WPA password to something you know. If you do not know the admin password, then you have to reset the router to factory defaults by pressing and holding the Reset button for at least 10 seconds, and then using the Easy Install Wizard to configure it again from scratch.

I dont have the original install info that I used


Go on and reset your router. You do not need the original installation equipment.
After you have reset your router connect it to your computer/laptop using the LAN wire.
Enter your router IP address in the browser address bar and your routers page will pop up. Now all you have to do it set it up according to your liking.
