Linksys wireless-G 2.4 GHz broadband Router

Geek Squad suggested I let them "lock" my wireless router for safety (150.00). I have a Linksys wireless-g 2.4 ghz router. I've had it a while and no longer have the box or manual, so I don't know my codes, although there are ID numbers on the bottom. Can I do this myself?

What is the model No. of the router ?

You can open the setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of Internet Explorer / Firefox.

The default password for linksys routers is admin.

Once in the setup page, click on wireless and click wireless security. There you'll find the wireless security keys.

Hope that helps :)

Yes. Your router ip is likely 192.168.1.1 put that into your web browser. You'll get a login screen. type admin then password in the two boxes. That should get you into the router unless the user id and password have been changed. If you goto the linksys site and goto downloads you can enter your model and version number and download the manual.

All you have to do is to find the pass-phrase (or password) for your wi-fi. Start your favorite browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla etc) and at the address line type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter. This address is the typical address for linksys routers. At the page with the router's settings that will come up, go at the wireless tab and after this at the wireless security tab. There is an area for pass-phrase, write down at a piece of paper the phrase in this area because this is the pass-phrase you have to provide at the e-reader when it will ask you for a password to connect to the Wi-Fi.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

The Geek Squad set a password inside your router for the wireless network,
and set an 'SSID' value for the name of your wireless network.

They should have told you what the password and SSID are.

My lap top connecting to my wireless system.


Your computer is not yet connected to the wireless network of the router. Also, make sure that your wireless computer has a wireless adapter installed on it. You may verify it on the Device Manager. If you're using a laptop with built in wireless adapter , make sure that the switch for the wireless connection is on so that it will detect the signal of the router.

Try configuring or verifying the wireless settings of the router first by following the steps on this link:
http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=4585&p_created=1165894972&p_sid=RY2yXS3j&p_accessibility=0&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MTAwNiZwX3Byb2RzPTAmcF9jYXRzPTE3MjEsMTcyMyZwX3B2PSZwX2N2PTIuMTcyMyZwX3NjZl9sYW5nPTEmcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD13aXJlbGVzcyBzZWN1cml0eQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1

After configuring or verifying the wireless settings of the router, connect your wireless computer by following the steps on this link:
http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=4055&p_created=1160185039&p_sid=RY2yXS3j&p_accessibility=0&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MTAyNSZwX3Byb2RzPTAmcF9jYXRzPTE3MjEsMTcyMyZwX3B2PSZwX2N2PTIuMTcyMyZwX3NjZl9sYW5nPTEmcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1jb25uZWN0aW5n&p_li=&p_topview=1

If you cannot still connect wirelessly, let me know of the following:
- model number of the router
- operating system of the computer
- wireless adapter installed on the computer (built in or external)
- brand of wireless adapter installed
- wireless settings of the router (SSID, wireless security)

If the default ip address has been changed, reset the unit. Reset is on the back small button or pin hole. Plug the cat5 cable into the router and your network card on your pc, then log back in using default 192.168.1.1 no user name, password is admin.
