Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router

Entering a Network Key

I tried entering the WEP key manually on my Windows machines and got nowhere so then I used a wizard from www.linksysfix.com/ela. That worked. Now I am trying to get my Linux machines connected but there is no wizard for Linux so I again tried to enter the pass phrase manually but no go. I am positive the code is correct. Is there some other setting I'm missing?

    I manually entered the ip address, gateway address and subnet. The info was garnered from a windows machine via. command prompt - ipconfig . You might need to experiment with the ip address if there is a conflict with other computers. Good luck.

I returned the Linksys router and got a Netgear router instead. The setup with Lynksys was not only clunky it was inflexable. It wouldn't even let me select my own WEP code. With the Netgear router I used WAP encryption with my own code but this time I changed the the network name. Another good sign with the Netgear is that they had an Apple logo as well as the Linux penguin!

Grace Digital Mondo Wifi radio - plugged in, found my wifi connection, but when I enter my WEP Key, it just cirlces back to :Enter WEP Key. No errors received, just doesn't recognize my WEP K


Hi
You say that the radio keeps demanding the WEP key for your WiFi connection. WEP is just one of several security types to be used for WiFi. The fact that the radio is asking for a WEP key indicates to me that your WiFi is more than likely set to one of the other security standards such as WPA, WPA2-PSK etc etc etc. If this is the case your laptop and kindle etc will be using the same security standard as your WiFi router. To find out which security standard is being used in Windows 7, on your laptop, click on the active connection in the system tray to bring up the list of available connections and then click on "Open Network and Sharing Centre". When the Network Centre page comes up double click on the "Wireless Connection".
A status box will come up and about half way down is a utton "Wireless Properties". Click on this, and in the box that comes up click on the security tab and it will tell you the security type, the encryption type and the wireless key (click on "Show characters").
If the encryption type is not WEP then the radio will not connect to your WiFi, and the radio settings for Security and encryption need to be set to the same as on the laptop for it to connect.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Tip

How do I set up the wireless network key on my linksys router?


Hi.

This tip applies to any Linksys wireless router.

First you need to access the router control panel , and check wireless settings.

Therouter control panel is accessed connecting a computer to the router.This is done using an Ethernet cable, and entering router IP address in Internet Explorer address bar.

Here the cable:

Here the procedure.

Connect router to computer using a network cable (LAN cable with RJ45 connector).

On computer open Internet explorer and type router IP in the address bar (where you use to typewww.this.that ).The IP address is indicated on router user manual. Ifit has not been changed, 192.168.1.1 is the default for LinkSys brand home broadband routers. Press enter after typing the IP.

Enter router user name and passord. On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer LinkSys routers, both the default usernameand the password are "admin". If that does not work, then defaultsettings had been changed. In that case you will need to reset therouter. See: Reset a LinkSys Router Password.

After entering right ID and password you will open the router control pane as HTML page in Internet Explorer.

In the router control panel choose the wireless setting tab to see or modify the password:

If you do not need to change wireless settings, then write down the encryption key, and set the same key on the laptop. Once the right key is set on the laptop, the connection will start automatically.

If more computersare connecting to this network, then do not reset or change thewireless settings. Simply write down the key on paper and setup thelaptop.

Remember that WAP encryption keys are case sensitive, Wep encryption keys are not.

The simplest encryption to choose is WEP.
WEP means wireless encryption key.

Open the router panel, go to wireless, and find key settings or set your own key.

If you have to set the key:

If you choose WEP 64, then the key that you need to set will be 10 characters key made by numbers and letters from A to F.

Close Internet Explorer to get out of the Linksys control panel.

Regards.

The wifi on my nintendo ds lite doesn't work even though i changed the settings to WEP ..i dont know if the wep key i type in on my DS is wrong because when i type in the wep key shown on the netgear...


Welcome to Fixya

First you need to check is if the WEP key that you are entering is the WEP key of your router. Try to connect a laptop to your computer which do not belong to the network. Say, your friends laptop. This laptop will ask for a security key if it's the first time to connect to the network. Enter your security key and see if the laptop can connect to the network. If it did not connect then the problem is your WEP key.

Have a good one!

Cant find wep key


Your printer is saying that you should secure your wireless internet. Try resetting the router by holding the reset button located on the back for at least 30 seconds.

Wep address


WEP address is your security key to get on the wireless network. New access point usually do not have one assigned. You need to get into the router and enter it in, like a password. If you haven't setup the network, then someone else did and you need to get the WEP key from that person. If you can get it, then you could reset the router to factory defaults by pressing and holding the button in the back of the router for 30 seconds. Let the router reboot and look for a wireless network called "LINKSYS" or "DLINK" or something like that. You should be able to connect without entering a WEP key. If your computer asks you for one then leave it blank or look in the manual for the default WEP key.

Securing my wifi network


Hi George,

Simply open your Internet browser, in the address line, inset 192.168.0.1, then:
-> Goto TOOLS

Here you set the administrator password, note that you have to set the same password twice.

Do set some security as well, other vice your neighbor will use your network, - and that you don’t want, as you don’t know what and where he go on the internet.

On page 27 in your manual, you find the way to set the wireless settings.

On page 37 in your manual, you find a way to set MAC address settings. Thise settings allow only those MAC addresses as you put in the table.
You find your own MAC address like this:
->Start->run->write cmd and hit enter; a black DOS window open, write ipconfig /all (note the space before /all). Here you find your MAC address – note that there is two cards in your laptop, and the card you want the MAC address for is the wireless card.

Securing wireless router


Click here for a link to the instruction manual. All this was retrieved from p.48
First off make sure your wireless connection is working
1. On the Setup tab of the Router’s web-based utility, click the Enable radio button next to WEP. Then click the Edit WEP Settings button.
2. You will see the 2.4GHz, 54g, Wireless-G (WEP) screen (Figure C-1). Next to Default Transmit Key, select which WEP key (1-4) will be used when the
Router sends data. Make sure the receiving device is using the same key.
3. For the WEP Encryption drop-down box, select the level of WEP encryption you wish to use, 64-bit 10 hex digits or 128-bit 26 hex digits. Higher encryption levels offer higher levels of security, but due to the complexity
of the encryption, they may decrease network performance.
4. Instead of manually entering WEP keys, you can enter a Passphrase in the Passphrase field. This Passphrase is used to generate one or more WEP keys. It is case-sensitive and should not be longer than 16 alphanumeric characters. (This Passphrase function is compatible with Linksys wireless
products only. If you want to communicate with non-Linksys wireless products, enter the WEP key manually on the non-Linksys wireless products.)
After you enter the Passphrase, click the Generate button to create WEP keys.

Note: All Wireless-G and 802.11b devices in your network must use the same Passphrase or WEP key.
5. WEP keys enable you to create an encryption scheme for wireless LAN transmissions. If you are not using a Passphrase, then manually enter a set of values in each Key field. (Do not leave a key field blank, and do not enter all zeroes. These are not valid key values.) If you are using 64-bit WEP encryption, then the key must be exactly 10 hexadecimal characters in length. If you are using 128-bit WEP encryption, then the key must be exactly 26 hexadecimal characters in length. Valid hexadecimal characters are “0”-“9” and “A”-“F”.
6. Check all the values, and click theApply button to save your WEP settings and return to the Setup screen. To cancel any changes you’ve entered on this page, click the Cancel button. To get more information about the features, click the Help button.

Can't access router via 192.168.1.1


Hi Again

Answer is simple; network security (WEP or WPA) key is different than regular password. Entry should be Hexadecimal, However you can use pass phrase generator by entering regular characters or you can enter directly. For example if you we want to put to "password" as network key hexadecimal input will be exactly 2B204A3F1042643E480FDD655E for 128 Bit WEP. Since you are unable to reach the router. Please reset it first. so it will be accessible from your computer without Network key. Network key will be enough for the 1st line
Hope you will resolve the issue.

Good Luck
