Log into the router's web from a computer wired to the router (default address is 192.168.1.1)... the default password is (no user name) admin. Go to the wireless security page and you'll see the keys listed there. If the password has been changed, you'll need the password to avoid resetting the router.

How to secure my network


You can secure it by setting a security key. By default, linksys wireless has a default WEP key and SSID which you will be able to see at the back of the router where you see a sticker on it. If you want to change it, you can use this link to set it up.http://www.columbia.edu/acis/networks/aptnet/linksys/index.html

I cannot find my wireless security key


Good day.
The default wireless security can be found on the bottom of the router on a sticker label. It has a label WEP, since that is the default security key for Linksys.

I dont have a disk to install my wep key to stop people from stealing my internet


open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Enter admin for both the username and password.

If it not accept then type user name Admin leave the password box blank and then click ok.

If it still does not accept it that means you have changed your user name and password of linksy.
To get your linksys default settings you will have to reset your linksys router by inserting a paperclip into the small Tiny hole into the back of the Linksys router for 10 sec.

Now you try to access router by user name and password which is mentioned above.

now you will have Linksys router page and now click on Security seetings on top

choose WPA PSK security settings

Now it will as you the security key

Enter any security minimum of 8 Characters anything you like.

click save settings on the bottom.

now try to connect to your Wireless network

it will ask you the security key

Enter your security and your wireless network is secured now.

Do not know the network security key to my router


Greetings Marion5,

The security key is located on the back of the router. It consists of a combination of letters and numbers. This code is the key straight from factory settings. You have the option of changing your security key to whatever you like, if you wish to do so. Thank you for using FixYa. =)
