Hello, You can reset the router to default. On the back of router push in the reset button/hole for 10-15 seconds. The defaults will be: IP address 192.168.1.1 User name admin. You shouldn't need a password. From there you can change username, password, SSID and enable WEP or WPA security. Hope this helps.

when you attach/setup this router
if this has a built in modem the one that you connect directly to the net the password will be the one you gave your ISP internet service supplier you might have to ring your ISP and get them to check your connection online

My linksys wrt54g can not hook up to the internet via my at&t modem do i need to change any settings whithin mu computer


Hi.

Are you Using a username and password for your AT&T internet connection? if yes, then try this

press and hold down the reset button on the back of the router until the power light starts blinking. power down the router for 1min.
wire your computer to the #1 port ( modem is not connected to the router )
open internet browser, type 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. type "admin" on the password field.
then you will be able to see the routers' configuration page.
under Internet Connection Type, set it to PPPoE and type your Username and Password that AT&T gave you. scroll down, look for "LAN ip ( usually is in 4 boxes that has 192.168.1.1 ) ". changed the number to 192.168.5.1. then save the settings

just connect your modem to the router, you should be good by then.

if you're not using a UN & PW from AT&T, just changing the ip to 192.168.5.1 will work.

please rate me.. :-)

I can connect to the internet with my lap top trough my Linksys Router WRT54G because every time i try to connect is asking fo a security code number


Hi

On your wired computer, opened internet explorer and type 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 then press enter.

It will ask you for a Username and password, type admin on the username and type your Administrator password on the password field (default password is admin).

Then you will be directed to a setup page, go to the wireless teb then click on the wireless security tab. You will see your password there .

Hope I was able to help.

I HAVE A WRT54G. I AM DROPPING MY WILDBLUE SATELLITE INTERNET SERVICE BECAUSE MY DIAUP IS FASTER AND MUCH CHEAPER. I WANT TO RUN THE NEW PHONE LINE TO A PC WHICH HAS A PHONE MODEM AND AN ETHERNET PORT. CAN...


The answer that he gave you is not accurate. In fact you can use your wireless over dial-up. This however takes a little work. You will need to setup internet connection sharing on your desktop with the modem. If you can get the sharing working, then you can use your ethernet card on your PC to transfer the internet back to your wireless router.

This will work, it has been a few years since I have done it, but I used it this way for several years.

I have connected my wireless to the computer and modem and not getting an internet connection what am I doing wrong?


you need to login to the web page using the routers ip address and the usernamd and password which if its left to default will be username - admin and ignore the password field or visa versa ( ignore username field and password is admin ) click on ok and configure the settings into the router with regards to what settings your ISP gave you if you have a static ip address or a dhcp assigned one and any other relevant settings if required ( contact your ISP ( Internet Service Provider ) and they should be able to advise you further.
