How to set up you wireless router to use a wireless network.


From a wired connection open you internet browser and type in 192.168.1.1 . The user name or password is usually "admin" or the password is sometimes blank. Once you log in you should change you network name from the default. For example a Linksys router's network name will be Linksys, this is fine unless someone else in you area has the same network name then neither of you will be able to connect.

To set up a wireless security you will need to select the type of security you want to use WPA or WEP and so. WPA is easier to remember as it is just a word you choose, while WEP generates a key based on a word you enter. If you do not set up a key you wireless network will be listed a unsecured.
If you set up a network key make sure to write it down, you will need it for every computer that wants to connect to your network.

If you are still not able to connect to the internet go back to the router menu via you internet brouser again. this time change the last letters of the default server. example 192.168.1.1 --> 192.168.1.4

Remove the neighbor's network from the preferred network list.
add your own network in the list. If your router is old router then upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
You have connected your laptop to the router, to secure the wireless network. When you connect the laptop to the router, make sure that the wireless network connection will be disabled.
Once you change the wireless settings, enable the wireless connection and connect to your network.

My Router works only if I do not put security password on it.


The router works only if the network is unsecured.
When you secure the wireless network , make sure that you will change the wireless network name also. Because if you change the wireless security and if you keep the same network name then your computer will try to connect to the same network name with the old unsecured settings saved on the computer.
Try to change the SSID ( network name ) and security to WPA, check if that works.
If that doesn't work then I believe you will need to upgrade the FIRMWARE of the router.

Unable to encrypt router


you have to check if you have the wep key enabled. when you put in the wep key, it should also be enabled so that your wireless network should say security-enabled wireless network. make sure to disconnect and connect again on your network after changing the settings to refresh your connection. hope this helps.

How to get rid of old "unsecured" wireless network


SLRUSS63,

Are you referring to the Linksys SSID showing up when you browse for available wireless networks? Also, are you in an apartment building or otherwise relatively close to other houses/residents? It is possible that you and a neighbor both have Linksys APs and if neither was secured originally, your neighbor could have been connecting to your AP and vice versa. This definitely would explain slowness especially if you or your neighbor does any type of video or audio streaming.

One way to test this is to shutoff your Linksys router and view available wireless networks on your computer. If "Linksys" still shows up, it is most likely someone else's router/AP.

As long as your SSID shows up and you can only connect to it via the WEP key, your AP is secure.

Let me know if you get different results than I explained above.

Wireless connection


You need to edit you're router's wireless settings, maybe there is a conflicting default network w/in you're range. Make sure you change the SSID (wireless name) to a unique name, the channel I advise you to set it to CH11, and enable wireless security as well, you can go for WPA-Personal it will be supported by XP and it's a good encryption method. And try removing all the network's listed on the "preferred networks list" on windows to make sure there won't be any conflicting wireless profile.

Username & password


Changing the router password from admin to any password I think that you would be possible. Other brands of router has that option. And the router password won't affect the password for the wireless connection, they are different from each other. Wireless mac Filter is another way of securing your wireless network. Its done by listing the MAC Addrses (media Access control) or the physical address of your wireless adapter on your computer/s to either allow them to connect to the network or not to connect to the network. but I recommend to just use WPA security. It's secured and its much easier to add another wireless device to your network, because you just need to put the password and no need to get the MAC address and manually encode in on your router setup page. Its also possible to change the SSID or the name of your network.

I will get back to you with the steps on how to change the ssid adn change the router password. Okay?
