To change the settings on the router, you will need to access the router set up page.
On this page you can change all the settings.
Do you have any computer connected to the router ?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
check the IP address on that computer and open the set up page.
On the main set up page at the top you will find the option.
For DSL connection the type will be DHCP or PPPoE.
For Cable ISP leave it on DHCP and clone the MAC address of the main computer.

Tip

How do I set up the wireless network key on my linksys router?


Hi.

This tip applies to any Linksys wireless router.

First you need to access the router control panel , and check wireless settings.

Therouter control panel is accessed connecting a computer to the router.This is done using an Ethernet cable, and entering router IP address in Internet Explorer address bar.

Here the cable:

Here the procedure.

Connect router to computer using a network cable (LAN cable with RJ45 connector).

On computer open Internet explorer and type router IP in the address bar (where you use to typewww.this.that ).The IP address is indicated on router user manual. Ifit has not been changed, 192.168.1.1 is the default for LinkSys brand home broadband routers. Press enter after typing the IP.

Enter router user name and passord. On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer LinkSys routers, both the default usernameand the password are "admin". If that does not work, then defaultsettings had been changed. In that case you will need to reset therouter. See: Reset a LinkSys Router Password.

After entering right ID and password you will open the router control pane as HTML page in Internet Explorer.

In the router control panel choose the wireless setting tab to see or modify the password:

If you do not need to change wireless settings, then write down the encryption key, and set the same key on the laptop. Once the right key is set on the laptop, the connection will start automatically.

If more computersare connecting to this network, then do not reset or change thewireless settings. Simply write down the key on paper and setup thelaptop.

Remember that WAP encryption keys are case sensitive, Wep encryption keys are not.

The simplest encryption to choose is WEP.
WEP means wireless encryption key.

Open the router panel, go to wireless, and find key settings or set your own key.

If you have to set the key:

If you choose WEP 64, then the key that you need to set will be 10 characters key made by numbers and letters from A to F.

Close Internet Explorer to get out of the Linksys control panel.

Regards.

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.. :-)

Unable to connect to the internet with my linksys wrt120n router through my at&T modem. The AT&T router works fine by itself. But will not communicate with the Linksys router


If you connect the computer directly to the AT&T modem , it work. That means the modem is working properly.
AT&T is DSL connection type. the DSL connection works on 2 different modes. 1) DHCP 2) PPPOE.
Now you will need to connect the modem and the computer to the router. open the set up page of the rotuer.
The set up page is the page where you can change the settings of the router.
According to the type of internet connection you can change the settings of the router

Linskys wireless-g broadband router not connecting to network


first thing, we need to know what this d-link is... Is this a modem? or another router? Can you check its model #, perhaps at the back? How many ports does it have? To verify your internet connection, try connecting your computer to the dlink and check its IP address (Go to Start> Run> type "cmd". On the black window, type "ipconfig"). Do you have internet connection when your pc is straight to the dlink?

I'm thinking that dlink is conflicting with the linksys settings. If it is, we need to change the IP address of the linksys router. Post back what you find out.

How to change Linksys wireless router?


When you get cable internet, the cable company provides you with a modem (usually). From the cable modem you can hook up the Linksys router with an ethernet cable and it will work just fine. Hook the router up to the desktop or laptop with another ethernet cable if you need to make changes to the router security or whatever. The router address is generally 192.168.1.1. YOu can type that address right into the internet address and you router page shoud show up. If you have been using the Linksys router with the phone line all you need is to connect it to the cable modem to work. An ethernet cable is like a telephone line with a fatter connecter.
