Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Linksys WRT54G. I am trying to access my wireless network from a new laptop. I go to connect to the wireless network and I enter the security network key that is set up in my wireless network, and it gives me an error message saying "security network key mismatch." Do I need to reconfigure my wireless network, if so, how do I do that? I don't have the disc that came with the linksys router.

Ok, it depends on what security encryption method was used. WEP or any other. you should confirm this first. using its ethernet port, Enter http://192.168.1.1 in your computers browser ( the one that you have connected to the router by Ethernet cable ), Leave the User Name field empty, and enter admin in lowercase letters in the Password field (admin is the default password). Then, click the OK button. check in security to confirm your key

WPS button


I have a WRT54G router and there is no WPS button.

This is a cut and paste from Cisco engineer:
Wi-Fi Protected Setup or WPS is a somewhat new feature on most routers. However, I believe that the WRT54g was release prior to this feature. The installation disc for your wireless adapter is trying to circumvent network discovery and the process of entering a wireless password by using the WPS feature. Without using the installation disc to setup the adapter should still be able to connect to your Wi-FI network. Only use the disc to install the drivers for your wireless card and the wireless access utility. After you have done this:
1.Open the wireless utility and you should see available networks
2.Select your Wi-Fi network
3.If the network is open (not password proctected) you should be connected immediately
4.If the network is secured (password protected) then you will prompted to enter your password or preshared key
5.After entering the key you should be granted access to the network

I am trying to add a wireless connection to another laptop we own but apparently cannot access www.linksysfix.com/ela


Its not necessary to access linksys.com Your new laptop if has wireless card will read network automatically and connect with password if you set up for your router. If no password set up then your laptop should be online as soon as its powered on!
Most router problems can resolved by power cycle.
Check if your laptop new has wireless card and is enabled!

Linksys WAP54G connection to WRT54G


Ok, so why do you need an access point upstairs and a router downstairs connected wirelessly? If you can't connect with a laptop or a pc, why whould you think you could connect the access point? The purpose of this configuration would have to be with the access point to the router via ethernet. What's the point? If the problem is range, check out http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php to enhance the capabilities of the WRT54G... and maybe building a parabolic antenna for it as well. Plans to do so abound at Lifehacker.com.
