First, let's log on to the router.
  1. Open your internet browser and type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar. This is the default IP address of the browser.
  2. In the login box that appears type 'admin' (without quotes) in both fields. 'admin' is the default username and password.
Write down the SSID
  1. In the Wireless > Basic Wireless Settings menu you will see the Service Set Identifier or SSID. The SSID differentiates one wireless network from another. It is the 'network name'. Write it down, or copy paste it to a text file. You will need it later. You can first set your own SSID if you like.
In the Linksys WRT54G router you will find the wireless security options under Wireless > Wireless Security. This page allows you to set wireless encryption options.

here you will find you wireless key. this can only be done by a machine connected directly by network wire. make sure you are connected first. wireless is unable to connect unless it is directly connected.

Hi Friend, As you need to upgrade the firmware for the router. Please follow the below link that will take you to the router's drivers page.

Please select the appropriate version from the list of the versions and as soon as you will select the version on the left hand corner slightly below the version number you will find the "firmware for your router"

Thank you.

Linksys WRT54G: Has worked great for years. It recently reset itself (lost encryption). At same time: wireless works for about 60 secs then disconnect; then next day, wireless works perfect. Then:...


if it is working but intermittently most probably you may need to update your routers firmware online... go into your routers GUI " Graphical User Interface settigns page there should be an option for you to update the routers firmware... also try calling the routers manufacturer give them what model your router is for them to check and give you info if there are updates available for the specific router you have. if it connects it is ok it it gives an error something is incorrect in the settings.

I am having a problem replacing the firmware in my Linksys Wireless-g wrt54g v5 router. I have downloaded the tptp.exe file that lets me upgrade the firware manually and it says error connecting to the...


I don't know where you downloaded the "tptp.exe" file, but I can tell you right away that this is not the right format for upgrading a firmware. You should have a file with the ending ".bin" downloaded instead.

If you are using Linksys firmware, go here and download the file "FW_WRT54Gv5v6_1.02.7.011_EN_20090727.bin".

  1. Connect to your router with an Ethernet cable. Do NOT do this wireless!!!
  2. Log into your router and go to the "Administration" tab. Follow the link to "Firmware Upgrade".
  3. Browse for the file you downloaded before.
  4. Press the "Upgrade" button.
  5. Now take your hands off the keyboard and mouse!
    Leave the page alone and don't touch your router until the upgrade is finished and the router has rebooted. Go get a coffee or something, but leave your computer alone until it's done.
    I really can't stress this point enough - I have seen several dead routers due to impatience.
If you are running any third party firmware (Tomato, DD-WRT, etc.), let me know, but the upgrade process is pretty much the same (especially point 5.;-)

If you have any more questions with any of theses steps, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Keep losing connectivity


What kind of adapter do you have? I was so sick of resetting the thing daily, that I just went and bought another router.

Linksys wireless router has many bugs: connection issues like no connection or constantly having to reset the router. It isn't compatible with many network adapters2.gif. Hope this helps!

Linksys wireless-g wrt54g


Hi,

Chances are yes depending on the version that you have. This model has been in production for some time and variations has necessitated different Versions (mostly on the firmware).

The LinkSys page for various downloads (including latest firmware) is here. Again, you need to specify what version is your WRT54G.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
