Question about Linksys Wireless-G WET54G 802.11g/b (WET54GSUK) Wireless Bridge

2 Answers

Unable to get my WET54G up and running

I had a wireless router whose IP config is:
address: 192.168.1.1
net mask: 255.255.255.0
security: WEP 128 bits
key 1: X... [13 characters long)

I am trying to connect my PC/Linux to the Internet. I have plugged the WET54G to the PC through Ethernet.
IP address: 192.168.1.35
net mask: 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 192.168.1.1

When trying to setup the security on the bridge, I do not know where to type the key: passphrase or key 1?

My PC setup is:
IP address: 192.168.1.33
net mask: 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 192.168.1.1

Any idea? Thanks in advance.

How To install on a Lynksys router.

ok on every router there is a ip address range in wich it makes up the addresses, for instance on my wrt300n the ranges are 192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.199, You can view this by going to your routers page 192.168.1.1 and viewing the SETUP tap and BASIC SETUP subtap and look at Network Address Server Settings DHCP, in order to get the wet54g to work you have to be within that range.

note: if you cant find the ip address range of your router and you have another pc running on wireless go on that machine and run start menu, run then cmd, once there type ipconfig /all and it will show you the ip address of that machine ex 192.168.1.102, this will give you an idea on were to set your bridges ip address, i just set mine at 192.168.1.103 wich was 1 above my other pc

So with that said in your router function 192.168.1.1 make sure you have DHCP enabled and i have my SSID broadcast on and i use wep 128 bit with a passphrase and firewall protection on

BRIDGE: when first installing the wet54g make sure to use it on the pc that the router is hooked up next to because you need to hardline the wet54g right into the router to first set it up. log into your bridge for the first time at 192.168.1.226 username: admin, password: admin, change the ip address of the bridge from 192.168.1.226 to 192.168.1.xxx (within the routers ip address range as stated earlier on my machine i made it 192.168.1.103) and leave it as a static ip address. so it should look like this

Static ip address
IP address: 192.168.1.103
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.1 (this is your router ip address)

and from here you should be able to do a site surver and see your router, click on the SSID name of your router example linksys and it should prompt for your security settings if not there on the main page. i used wep 128 bit on infrastructure mode. so make sure its under your correct mode (dont worry about channel if using infrastructure) make sure your security is enabled or disabled depending on your set up, if enabled click on the edit security settings button put in your right mode (wep for me) make sure the Transmision key is the same on your router wich you can find at 192.168.1.1 under wireless and wirless security(mine was transmission key 1). so enter your passphase and generate it appy and close.

apply all of your settings and wiat 15 sec for the bridge to reboot, then go to the advanced tap of the bridge and it should look like this

TransmissionRate : AUTO
Authentication Type: Shared (if using security)

Clooning mode i set to Enable and auto

This should be it for the bridge, now go to the pc your going to be using it on and view your network connections and properties of your NIC/network card and highlight TCP/IP setters and click properties of that make it the following

check Obtain an IP address automatically

and check Use the Following DNS server addresses:
Preferred DNS server: 192.168.1.xxx (make the xxx to whatever you assigned your bridges ip address to, in my case it was 192.168.1.103)

Alternate DNS server: 192.168.1.1 (make your router's IP address )

save and close settings

you should now be able to see the internet.

i tried my best to fully explain this if i left something out i apologize

1. Log into the router. To do this you will need to open your web browser and enter http://192.168.2.1
Note If you change the default IP address then you will need that address to log into the router. Normally it is the Gateway IP. You can check this by opening CMD via the Run command window. Once it is open then type ipconfig and hit enter.

2. Click Login in the upper right hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click submit.

3. Next you will click on the Wireless heading then Security in the left hand column.

70cb618.png

4. Select “128-bit WEP” or “64-bit WEP” from the drop-down menu.

536afa8.png
5. Next you can enter your WEP key manually by typing in the hex values in the space provided, or you can type a passphrase in the “PassPhrase” field and click “Generate” to create a WEP key from the passphrase. Click “Apply Changes” to finish.

Note a hexadecimal key is a mixture of numbers and letters from A–F and 0–9. 64-bit keys are 10 digits long and can be divided into five two-digit numbers. 128-bit keys are 26 digits long and can be divided into 13 two-digit numbers.

At this point you should have your WEP setup. When you connect your computer to the wireless router you will be prompt for the WEP key you just set up.

How do I put an encryption on my linksys router?


Securing your wireless network is a simple process, which generally does not require a lot of time. This can be done by:
  • Enabling WEP or WPA on the Router
  • Enabling Wireless MAC filter on the Router
  • Disabling SSID Broadcast on the Router
NOTE: The wireless security modes available may vary depending on the model of the router and wireless adapter you are using.
Enabling WEP on the Router
Wired Equivalent Protocol (WEP) is a type of wirelesssecurity which does not change. It provides comparable confidentialityto a traditional wired network. There are two types of WEP you canchoose from:
a. WEP 64-bit: This type of WEP consists of 10-hexadecimal codes. To enable WEP 64-bit, click here.
b. WEP 128-bit:This type of WEP consists of 26-hexadecimal codes hence it is moresecured compared to WEP 64-bit. To enable WEP 128-bit, click here.
Enabling WPA on the Router
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a type of wireless securitywhich is dynamic in nature. Meaning, it changes depending on the timerenewal you will specify. Hence, WPA is more secured compared to WEP.
  • Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (WPA-TKIP) – utilizes a stronger encryption method and incorporates Message Integrity Code (MIC) to provide protection against hackers.
  • Advanced Encryption System (WPA-AES) – utilizes a symmetric 128-bit block data encryption
To enable WPA, click here.
Enabling Wireless MAC Filter on the Router
Wireless access can be filtered using the MAC address of thewireless devices transmitting within your network’s radius. You caneither permit or prevent specific wireless computers access to yourwireless network.
To permit wireless computers to connect to your wireless network, click here.
To prevent wireless computers to connect to your wireless network, click here.
Disabling SSID Broadcast on the Router
Disabling the SSID broadcast is one way of securing your wirelessnetwork. This procedure will prevent other users from detecting yourSSID, or your wireless network name, when they attempt to viewavailable wireless networks in your area. For instructions, click here.

    You can read more about WEP and WPA in the following links:
    This article explains how to configure WEP/WPA-PSK/Access list on NETGEAR Wireless router (also applicable to access points).
    Note:
    • You can configure WEP or WPA. But you cannot enable both at the same time.
    • You can configure Access list and also enable WEP or WPA for additional security.
    • After you enable wireless security features on the router (or access point), you must configure your wireless clients (wireless computers) with matching settings. Your wireless clients will not be able to connect unless you configure matching settings.
    • Its recommended you enable these wireless security settings from a computer wired to the router (or access point).
    Configuring WEP:
    1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
    2. Open an Internet explorer and type the router IP address which would be either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 (by default, refer to your product documentation ti determine the default IP address.) in the address bar and press Enter.

    Making a wrt54gc wireless router work with a wet54g bridge


    You shouldn't have to enter your SSID unless you have it hidden. Also, make sure you have the correct encryption set on both sides. WEP/WPA/WPA-2 for the Security type and TKIP/AES for the Encryption type. They need to match your router.

    Also, you need ot make sure you are entering the correct IP/gateway/subnet mask address or have DHCP enabled.

    Good luck
