Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
First inplug power from router via the jack(not the wall outlet) and then unplug the cable going to the modem, take the blue ethernet cable that comes with router and plug into internet port now you can secure your router without worrying about internet threats. Open your web browser , in the url bar type 192.168.1.1 hit enter and a window should open, asking for username/password if you have not set one the default is admin in the username field then hit enter. If you have already password connected it and forgot password you need to unplug everything from router and then hold down reset button on back. There will be a screen that will walk you through all aspects of setup, security, firewall, wirless setup , wireless security, and it will give you a break down of all options on the right side of each window. Important to setup a passkey!!! Otherwise people can get into your network easy. once setup plug blue cable into ethernet port and modem cable into internet port. plug in power and you should be set. The cd that came with router should be first used. Do not broadcast wireless ssid and use wireless pin to connect computer.

Testimonial: "Yes, very helpful. I had forgotten it had a reset button in the back. It was not accepting the password I had set for it so resetting was helpful. Thx"
If you have windows 7, open your pictures file. There you will see networking . You will have to enter the 8 digit serial number located on the back of the router.

I only have 3 suggestions.
1st one is to make sure the ssid is not similar to other routers you are using on your profile. ie.(change it to a unique name)
2nd is to make sure you check the box that says broadcast your ssid.
3rd check to make sure you select the router as an access point and not adhoc or infrastructure option. Finally you can try to change the channels eg. i like channel 3 b/c it doesnt interfere with any phone lines.

To accomplish the setup of the router, you need to be using a computer that is connected directly, harwired, into the router itself. If you don't have two computers, use the laptop but connect it into the router using the ethernet port, and ensure that the wireless on the laptop is off.
Open up your browser window and Enter 192.168.1.1 in your browsers address bar, no HTTP or anything, just the numbers, and press enter. A login box will appear that is asking for a User Name and Password. They are both, in lower case: admin then click on Login. This will take you to the Linksys Setup screen.
You have tabs at the top/center of the screen.
1) Click on the Setup tab and verify that in the drop down box it is set to: Auto Configuration-DHCP.Then verify that the time zone at the bottom is set accordingly. Do not make changes to any other settings on this screen.
2) Click on the Wireless tab at the top. Set the Wireless Network Mode to Mixed
Then choose a Network Name. This is the connection that you will connect your laptop to wirelessly.
Set the Wireless Channel to 11-2.462ghz
At Wireless SSID Broadcast click on Enable
DO NOT EXIT THAT SCREEN
3) Directly above the box where you entered MIXED, click on the sub-tab labeled Wireless Security
Security Mode: WPA2 Personal you can use WEP but WPA2 is more secure. If your laptop has connectivity issues with WPA2, try using WEP.
WPA Algorithms: I use TKIP+AES
WPA Shared Key: This is YOUR network key. Write this down and keep it in a safe place or just remember it. You will need this when you try and connect your laptop wirelessly.
Group Key Renewal: should already be set to a default of 3600
Click on the SAVE SETTINGS button
The last thing I do is I go back through each page and if some changes weren't saved I fill in the appropriate information and click the SAVE SETTINGS button for each page. You shouldn't have to but it doesn't hurt.
Last but not least, go to your laptop ( I would recommend restarting it) and turn on the wireless. You should see your newly created network and after choosing to Connect To A Network, enter your Network Key and you should be good to go.
Hope this helps

Encrypting the network blocks any unauthorized computer from accessing

192.168.0.1 from any web page, but before you do that, go to linksys website and see if you cant get default password, they have one just for this purpose, you might have to verify that its yours, but they can give you one that will work
