1.where do i find the password this router is looking for? it wont take any password (ex:admin) and press next during the cd software process 2. we have downloaded the software, we are plugged in to the...

To configure the Linksys you need to connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAP port on your computer.
Then open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
If the Linksys won't accept this password then it was changed and you need to RESET the Linksys back to the default settings.
To do this - power up the Linksys and press and hold down the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router for 30 secs. Now try and login again.

How do i hook my printer to internet it is a wifi

I assume you already have a wireless network set up with your existing router or access point. I used a Linksys WRT54G-TM router to set up an 802.11g 54Mbps WLAN with WPA encryption to simulate a common, run-of-the-mill wireless network.

Moving to a PC on the network, insert the installation CD that came with your printer. If the Setup.EXE utility on the disc doesn’t launch automatically or appear in an AutoPlay window, browse to the CD and double-click it. In the AutoPlay panel, click Run Setup.EXE.

In setup, click install and next. Disable your antivirus software temporarily while you’re installing the printer and that you click allow or unblock should a firewall request pop up during the installation. You also should close any other open applications
Click next, then next again to allow setup to automatically download and install any updates available online. We decided to let the program install the recommended pack of software for the printer; click custom if you would rather pick and choose the applications you want. Click next when you’re ready, and then "I agree" after you read the license agreement

Click Next again if you want to allow Setup to install everything on your C: drive. Alternately, if you want to specify a different folder or partition (hard drive section with its own drive letter or letters), such as D:\Program Files\, click Change and choose a folder. Click OK and Next.

The following panel lets you choose the connection type for your printer, namely USB or Wired/Wireless, where “Wired” means via Ethernet. Here’s a tricky part: Even if you’re setting up a wireless printing connection, you still need to temporarily connect the printer to your router with an included Ethernet cable. Do this and then click Next.

If a warning message about your firewall appears, shut down the firewall before you click continue. Setup now will search for the new printer on your network. Click next

In the found network printers window, select your printer under printer model by clicking it once. Click next to continue. Once the device setup panel reports “Device Detected,” click next again. After setup installs the rest of its software, click finish.

Finally, click Print Test Page. If the printer produces a test sheet, click OK. This is now connected with a wire (ethernet cable)

Now to make it wireless:

On the printer’s front panel, under the display, press Setup. Press the down arrow on the directional pad to the right of the display to choose Network, and then press OK. Select wireless radio and OK, and then on and OK.

Next, disconnect the Ethernet cable from the back of the printer. On the display, choose Wireless Setup Wizard and press OK. If the printer detects your wireless network, you’ll see its name, or SSID (Service Set Identifier). If you don’t know it, you probably can find it in your wireless router’s settings. Likewise, if the printer doesn’t detect your WLAN, chances are that you’ll need to turn on the SSID Broadcast feature, which also is controlled by your router.
Here are the steps we followed to access our Linksys router’s settings; they’re pretty typical, and they apply to many other routers and switches. If your router’s users manual has instructions that differ from our steps, use them instead.

Launch your browser. In the address bar, type and press ENTER. (Manufacturers traditionally reserve this IP [Internet Protocol] address,, for the switch or router running the network. It’s a local IP address that only applies within your LAN, by the way. Your ISP [Internet service provider] assigns a different global IP address to your router [and thus the computers on your network as you surf] so that it has a unique identity on the Web.) Next, type in your router’s username and password to access its settings. Typically, the factory-set username is admin, and there is no password, but we and router manufacturers strongly encourage you to change both of these for security reasons, if you haven’t done so already. If you do, be sure to write them down somewhere safe.

In the Linksys router’s settings, I clicked the Wireless tab to find the Wireless Network Name (SSID), which was wiprint. Here I also set the Wireless SSID Broadcast feature to Enabled. If you need to do this, too, click Save Settings afterward, then re-run the printer’s Wireless Setup Wizard.

After you’ve selected your wireless network name, or SSID, and pressed OK, you’ll need to type in the passphrase, or the key to your wireless network’s encryption. To find this, we clicked the Wireless Security subtab under the Wireless tab of our Linksys router’s browser-based settings panel, where it was called WPA Shared Key.

Using the on-screen keyboard, I used the printer’s directional pad and OK button to type each letter of our passphrase, wifiprinttest, into the display. If there are capital letters in your encryption key, move the blue cursor to ABC and press OK; press OK again to return the keyboard to lowercase letters. Likewise, select 123 if you need to type a number or special character, such as # or @. If you need to backspace to re-type a character, highlight Clear and press OK. The left and right arrow icons let you move the passphrase cursor back and forth. Choose Done and OK when you’re through

Press OK again, and your wireless printer will attempt to connect to your wireless network. If it can’t, double-check your passphrase and SSID and re-enter them. If your printer can’t find the wireless network at all, even if you type in the SSID manually, you may need to move it closer to the router or add the printer’s IP address (noted in the Location line of the test sheet you printed earlier) to your router’s MAC (Media Access Control) address filtering “safe” list

If the printer connects successfully, try printing another test page. Now re-enable your firewall, if you shut it down, and try printing again.

To connect another PC on the network to the new wireless printer, try to enable the HP in Windows’ printer settings. In Vista, click Start, Control Panel, Printers, the name of the wireless printer, and Set As Default. If the new printer isn’t listed, click Add A Printer and follow the instructions. In WinXP, click Start, Control Panel, and Printers and Faxes. Right-click the printer’s name and choose Set As Default Printer. Again, if the new printer doesn’t appear as an option, click Add A Printer and complete the Add Printer Wizard. If none of the above methods works, run the appropriate HP Starter CD on the PC to install the Wi-Fi printer’s software and complete its setup.

Cannot connect to wireless router

Make sure you are connected via hardwire connection. Restart router and select 'Start->Run' and enter 'ipconfig -renew'. If you are still not able to reconnect to router try pressing and holding the reset button on the back. This will restore it to the default settings including username and password.

Well i had just bought a lynksys router from my friend with no software cd so right now i am trying to download the software online so when i switch my cox modem with the linksys modem i want the software...

You should be able to get any software that you need from but I have a couple of quick questions first:

1. Is the LinkSys unit you just purchased a router or modem?

If the unit is a router, you are still going to need a Cox compatible modem. If the unit is a modem, you will still need a router to complete the network setup unless LinkSys makes a combination cable router/modem, and I haven't been able to research one.

2. If it is a modem, is it a cable modem and, if it is, is it Cox compatible?

According to the Cox Web Site, the only models of LinkSys modems that are currently compatible with the Cox High Speed Cable Internet Service are:

WCG200 v2

In this particular case, you may need to contact LinkSys and/or your Internet Service Provider. In most cases, they will not only tell you exactly what type of equipment you need, they will also talk you through setting up the network once you have the equipment - usually at no charge.

I just installed my siemens se567 wireless router nd I want to set up a wireless network to another computer using a linksys wireless usb network card. What must I do?

Hi tbopper, install linksys software. Follow the instruction. Disable your anti virus / firewall software. (temporally). Make sure the PC with the wireless card is turned on.
Than open My Network connections & run windows Set up a home or small office network. Follow windows instructions.
That's it. When you restart your PC your Anti virus software should enable it's self. Check your firewall is also back on, if it's included in your anti virus it will re-inable it's self. Since your running a wireless make sure you enable security & password, other wise anyone with a wireless can tap into your wireless signal slowing your bandwith down.
To test your linksys is correct. Open internet explorer. In the address window type in & press enter. Your settings should show up. Tech support is free with linksys.

Good Luck & Enjoy!
