Hi.

Just to put it out there I am a network specialist so my advise is something to consider

Try this..

1. Look on the back on the Router and while its plugged in press and hold the Reset button for a least 10 sec. You should see the lights on the front change or blink. After that let it sit for a few min. Then try to run the cd installation again. When it comes to the username and password .. Not enter a username just put admin for the password. That should let you finish your setup.

Now there is 2 ways to set up your router.

Use CD (For New Users That Are Not Familiar With Routers)

Or

Login manually by opening your web browser and typing 192.168.1.1
Do not enter a username and for the password put admin.

That will take you to the manual setup for the router.

Once you set up your router make sure you change your password from admin ..

Hint: Use WPA Personal or WPA 2 Personal security to secure your wireless network. WEB security is junk and not very secure

Where is the 8-digit PIN number for the Linksys Wireless-G router.


I am guessing you are talking about the WEP/WPA key so you can allow a computer to use the wireless.

Click on this link http://192.168.1.1 on a computer hooked up to the router, if the wireless is not working, connect directly to the router via an ethernet cable.

You will be prompted for a username and password. If you have not already changed the username and password, the username will be left blank and the password will be "admin".

Once you are into the configurations for your router, navigate to the tab called "wireless", then navigate to the sub menu of "Wireless Security". The "key" you are looking for is listed right there.

No Installation CD


No it's not needed, the main things you need to know is the IP address that the router is set to and it's login details which hopefully your friend can give you. (default IP: 192.168.1.1, default login and password: admin and admin)

After that, as long as your HS Internet modem has an ethernet port you would connect that to the Linksys and your PC's to the routers LAN ports. You can then also login to the router and setup the wireless part if you have any wireless devices to use with it.

How to uninstalling the Linksys Wireless-G WRT5aG Driver


A SSID is from (underline from) the router. Go to administrate your router. In there will be a tab for management. In the box for SSID enter one you like; refrain from you house number, phone number, etc.

On your pc, double click on the wireless icon by your clock On the right it will say "change order of prefered networks", click on that. In the new window, look on the right again. DELETE all the networks you see; then close. Get back to the wireless network window you first opened. Find your SSID. Click connect. If you put WEP or WPA on the router you will need to enter the password at this stage.

Bingo, done.
