You need to log into the router. You set the WEP key in the router; Linksys does NOT have access to your WEP key.

If you can log into the router, set the key and copy it down. If you can, use WPA2 encryption (more secure than WEP).

Connect HP 1102w to Linksys wrt54g


Hi! I was able to see that you've got a wireless printer. If you need to connect this to your router, this works like connecting a laptop wirelessly. First, you need to know your wireless name (SSID) and your password (WEP/WPA key). In case that you did not configure your SSID and password, it could be found on your router's sticker. If you were able to configure the two, then you just need to enter it when your wireless printer would ask for these info. If you needed help in configuring your router, I have here a page that you can follow just in case. Please visit http://www.columbia.edu/acis/networks/aptnet/linksys/index.html. This would help you on how you can set-up your router. In case this won't work, you may need to remove the printer's driver from your computer and reinstall it.Try to print a document via USB, just to make sure that it's working, then you may proceed in reconnecting it wirelessly.

I have a Linksys WRT54G which I have hooked up to my older Dell computer successfully. The signal is excellentfor this one, called "Bob" for clarity. I am trying to hook up to "Bob"...


Sounds like you may be experiencing excessive interference in the WIFI space. Try setting the linksys router to use a different wireless frequency. (normally the available ones are 1 - 11).

I cannot connnect wirelessly with my linksys e1000 router and was told by their experts that my hp pavilion entertainment pc needed an update for the driver of my wireless adapter. I did go to hp website...


Hi,
Check the following steps to connect wireless linksys router :

First, you have to connect the router to the ADSL or the cable modem.

Your system has to be set in such a way that it will get its TCP/IP network settings from the router via DHCP.

Second, you need to configure the router to use your Internet service.

Connect the antennas to the Linksys wireless router. Connect an Ethernet cable to the Internet port at the back of the Linksys router and it will establish a connection between your modem and router.

Connect another Ethernet cable between the computer and the router. Then connect the router to an electrical outlet.

Are you trying to install the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.

I was given a linksys wireless-g model wrk54g router but it didn't come with an installation disk. I have a Thomson speedtouch modem ST530 V6. Right now I am hooked up thru ethernet and getting internet...


was the router used by previous users? or did you buy it? if it was used then it was probably configured for different ISP. You don't need any CD. Just connect to the router via your browser (probably http://192.168.1.1) and adjust settings in WAN section.

Will a computer with 10/10 LAN connect to my wireless LAN?


The 10/100 LAN is a wired connection. If it is connected to the wrt54g through an ethernet cable yes it will see anything on the wireless connection but if you want the computer to use a wireless connection then you will need to get an 802.11B or 802.11G wireless adapter. The wireless adapter does not have to be Linksys but it does generally make thing easier if you use all the same brand.
