I have linksys wrt54g2 and want to put a password on it and dont know how


You need to set WAP or WPA2 encryption to prevent public access.

To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

How do i get wi-fi and if we dont have one how do i add one on there can you help me please i relley whant to play my game club penguin so i can play it please help me think you so much and heppy new...


For you to have or utilize a wi-fi network there are certain requirements that needs to be met.
One of which is the availability of a wireless router or broadcaster to help you broadcast your internet on a wireless range so it can be accessed by wireless devices.
In other words, for you to use the wi-fi, you need to be close to an area with a wi-fi network or service example maybe some hi-tech cyber cafe or a school or public network.
When you are close to any of these such facilities like your school network, a company's open network, you can access the wi-fi network.
If there is no wireless router broadcasting the internet service, there is no way you can get a wi-fi signal or connection.
for more information, let me know and i would put you through.
hope this helped you?

What is an ssid please?


An SSID is the public name of a wireless network. All of the wireless devices on a WLAN must employ the same SSID in order to communicate with each other.
This SSID is established when the router is installed. If you do not know the SSID, you must reset the router and redefine the network and a new SSID.

How to i password lock my router for my wi-fi


There is an option called WEP (Wired Encryption Privacy)
You have to loginto the wireless router and enable the WEP authentication.
It will ask you to type in a key and again reenter the same key.
Please do remember the WEP key as next time you try to connect to wireless your laptop will ask for the WEP key. enter in the same key and you will be able to go to internet.

Those who wants to use your wireless need to enter the same key. If you dont want someone to access your wireless then you dont provide him the key.

Remote Access


IF you are getting public ip from your isp, please go to administrator tab of the router and first change the router's password which is on the top on same page in black dots,,type your new password by deleting old one and re-confirm it just below and save it..router will prompt for the new password just to let you know settings are saved now enable remote managment option on the same page and port is 8080(default, you can use your own port number) and save setting..now you are ready to access your router remotely for that note down the public ip you are getting on your router's status page and in remote location you need to type something like :- http://x.x.x.x:8080...x.x.x.x is your internet ip (public) and 8080 is port number for remote management.

For host applications need to know which application you are running according to that need to open port in the router using Port Forwarding feature of the router.

To secure your wireless network and prevent unauthorized access you need to setup your wireless router with these settings :-
When you first setup your wireless router you should change the login password and then the wireless configuration, setup WAP or WAP2 encryption (WAP2 is the strongest encryption) and change the SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
For further wireless protection enable MAC address filtering. The MAC address of the wireless card in your computer is entered in the router MAC address filter table, which allows only the wireless card with this MAC address to connect to the wireless router.
Also if your router has a firewall then you should enable this feature.
The wireless card on the computer needs to be configured with the wireless router's settings. The LAN cable can be removed and the computer communicates wirelessly with the router.

I dont remember password


In order to know your password you have to:

1) Use some program to reveal the pass
2) Get access to your router

To get access to your router do this

1) Open your browser
Type .......
http://192.168.0.1


user = admin
pass= (blank) no password

hit enter



Once inside go to Wireless and see which is your WEP password

That's it

If your wireless router have a different pass than default you need to reset the router
