What is my security code. I have lots of numbers on the bottom of my router but none of them seem to work. I am trying to make my wireless internet connection more secure and Charter Cable will not help me. Is there a simple instruction page somewhere.

Is there any computer online using the router.
check the IP address on that computer.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.

Go to the linksys website, see if they have a firmware flash for the router, that may help in some connectivity issues. You may also find that the ipad/iphone may drop connections when battery levels are low

We have a new Vizio tv. Trying to hook up to wireless internet. Its asking for WPA Preshared Key and I can't figure it out. Have lots of numbers from router but no success. Can you help?

On your router you should have a WEP security code. If none of the numbers on your router are working then call your internet service and they will be able to tell you what it is.

Also think back to when it was installed, some people choose to change their security key.

I am trying to secure my wireless router and am asked for a PIN number. My router is a WRT54G2. On the bottom, there is a Model Number, Serial Number, MAC address number, and another with a connection...

I think none of those numbers will help you. I suggest that you download the directions from the Linksys site. if the following does not get you handled, please get back to me.

I have included the points that I think should be changed:

Wireless Router

It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below.

Things to set:

Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.

1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.

2. Set a recognizable system ID.

3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.

4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

Router password is the password to access the router settings.
SSID is the network name. When you try to connect to the wireless network on your laptop, you will see this network name.
If your network is secured network then it will ask you for the network key or the password. You need to enter the ' security key '.

Netgear MGT624: My netbook shows its connected to my router but

Re4place your Wireless Access code as set up with router control program. Often wireless access is denied when mistakes are made with this pass code. Just replace whatever code you have with another (simpler?) code or even going to "None" for Security. To try and establish comm through the router, if it succeeds with no security try again with perhaps WPA-[TKIP] coding.

The mac number on the bottom of your router is not the security code. You must login to your router's admin page to check the wireless security code.

Wireless internet to pc

if you have secured the router you should have used atleast either wep or wpa, changing the channel is just for interference problems. when you use wep encryption for example you will need to type in a pasword and the router will generate a pass phrase which will be a hex 8 digit and letter mixture which is the code that you will have to enter into each pc's wireless network card. If you are using windows wireless zero configuration (WZC) a selection of wireless connections will appear within your range and then when you connect to your network a window will pop up and ask you to enter the numbers and letters that the router generated, this will have to be re entered and the wireless connection will connect. If you are using the software that came with the wireless cards this will be a similair proceedure but will probably use their own wizard. Your wired connection will work without you needing a password because it's not wireless and therefore has no need for a security password.
