You won't be able to get into the internet until you configure your router - hence the security screen. Go to the Linksys book (or "quick start) that came with it should have given you the router's address and password (for instance http://43.221.16.55.and linksys. It'll also give you password instructions for when the security screen comes up. ) Once you're into your router's configuration page. You should be able to follow the steps and then you'll be home free. Good Luck or get back to me.

I have WII and Linksys. Can not connect it to internet. Yes, I know my wireless password key.


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you need the Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Changing password making the network secured


Access the Linksys configuration page as described in your instructions.
Select WPA or WPA2 as the wireless security encryption
Select PSK or TKIP and enter a network key (a.k.a. Password) to secure the connection.
The devices you connect to the Linksys must support the encryption you select.
Older devices might force you to use older encryption like WEP but be aware that WEP has been hacked since 2007 so it really isn't very secure anymore.

First reset your all router settings to defaults.
Press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router.
Then connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then access it with following link.

Slow web page loading


To setup and improve your wireless network’s signal, you can change your Wireless Network Name (SSID) and/or try using a different channel.
Changing your Router’s SSID and Channel
Step 1:
Access the router’s web-based setup page.
Accessing the Router’s Web-Based Setup Page
Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router’s IP Address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Links-ys routers) then press [Enter].
Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name space blank, type in your router’s password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
Step 2:
When the router’s web-based setup page appears, click the Wireless tab.
Step 3:
Look for Wireless Network Name (SSID) and if it’s still set to ‘linksys’ change it to something unique then click Save Settings.
click the Wireless tab and select the Wireless Security tab.
Step 3:
Select WEP under Security Mode.
Step 4:
Select any number on the Default Transmit Key field to determine which key you’ll be using. In this example, we selected number one.
Step 5:
Select 64 bits on WEP Encryption
Step 6:
Type a wireless network password of your choice such as “MySecretKey,” then click Generate.
NOTE: You should come up with a password that is unique for your network and is a combination of numbers and letters up to 10 characters.
Step 7:
The result will be a string of random characters. Copy the resulting string since this will be the key to your wireless network.
NOTE: Do not give this key to anyone. This will be your wireless network’s key.
And click save settings..
