Re: securing my linksys wireless g router
Hello, In browser address window,enter 192.168.1.1. This will open your router settings. It will ask for a Username and password. I believeUsername is "admin". You may not have to enter a password. If you do enter "admin" for password also. Once in to settings you'll see a link for "wireless". Click it and from there you can change Username, password,SSID(Router Nmae) and enable WEP security. There will be directions and explanation for most all questions. If there is more I can answer, please let me know. Hope this helps.

The Linksys G router gives you both wired and wireless connections over a broadband Internet connect to create a local area network. The Linksys router is compatible with wireless G and B devices, through the 2.4-GHz wireless band. The wireless speed is at 54 megabytes per second and you can get 100 megabytes per second with a wired connection. You have to set up the wireless configuration on the Linksys before using it on your network.
Plug the router's power cable into an electrical outlet. Attach an Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back of the router. Connect the other end into your broadband modem. Connect your computer to the Linksys G using another Ethernet cable. This Ethernet cable can go into any of the wired router ports. Open your Internet browser. Type "192.168.1.1" in the address bar and hit "Enter." This is your router's IP address and the home of its Web configuration page. Click "Wireless." Click "Manual." Alter your SSID, also known as your network name. You can change this name to any value that you want. You can also change the wireless channel if you are in an area with many wireless connections that may interfere. Click "Save Changes." Click "Wireless Security." Choose an encryption method to encrypt your wireless transmissions. WPA or WPA2 are common security protocols you can use in wireless networks. Input a network key, also known as the network password. Click "Save Changes."
Linksys E series routers can broadcast 2 wireless networks. First one is the main wireless network which is secured wireless network. The second network is a guest network which will always show you unsecured. It will never show you secured and you can not make it secured. However it has a web based security. Anyone can connect to the guest network but will not be able to access Internet without Guest access password. In other words there is a security. You can disable guest access also.

You need to log on to Linksys router to find the password or you can use with no password by resetting the router.
To get on to Linksys router connect the router to your computer with ethernet cable using one of the LAN ports on the router. Open a web browser on your computer and type 192.168.1.1. That will ask you a user ID and password. Leave the user id blank and type admin in password section. Once you are on router open page click on wireless and then security which will take you to router wireless password. Type that password on your smartphone to get internet access on smart phone! Good luck!!
there are two "locks"
one is setting a login password (you will find this on the "administrator" tab. You can choose a new password.
two is lock the wireless using a password
Click on Wireless Security. Under Security Mode, click on the Down Arrow and then select WPA-Personal Under Encryption:or WPA Algorithms:, set this to TKIP. Under WPA Shared Key, type in your desired password, which should be at least 8 characters long, but not contain any spaces or weird characters, such as $ % ^ & * #. Click on the Save Settings button to save the settings. Hope that answers your question.

etting up wireless security is the easiest way to prevent other people from using your wireless internet connection. Your Linksys router supports three (3) of the most commonly-used wireless security types WEP, WPA and WPA2.
This article will explain the difference between WEP, WPA, WPA2 and how to set up each of them.

Since you disabled the SSID Broadcast, you would need to tell you OS how to find the connection. Go to the properties of the Wireless connection in the Control Panel and add the connection there.
