Is broadcast ssid on? should be. . i would default it. hold reset button with pen unplug, plug in while still holding button with pen until all lights start flashing. release pen , wait til power is not flashing then unplug for 10 seconds and plug in. Then setup again before trying wireless security leave it unsecured, then change admin password , reset and try using "network magic" free from the linksys site.

Why can't I get my tablet PC to connect with my new Linksys Wireless-N Home Router?


Hello, Try troubleshooting:1) Does it have a password on your router?2) If so remove password and try connecting to it
Some electronics cant work to connect to WiFi if its protected by a tough security such as WPA2-TKIP.

Laptop not able to connect to wireless


Most likely you need to put in a password or tell you computer that your router is password protected. Go to network connections choose wireless then find your router and hit connect, it should ask for a password.

Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4)


hello!

normally, if you configure the wireless security settings wirelessly, it will automatically disconnect you from the network. you have to input the security key on the laptop first before it connects you back to the network.

i suggest, if you really like to configure the settings of your router, get an ethernet cable, connect it directly to the laptop so you can access and configure the router settings and to avoid from being disconnected
