All I know is if you ring your internet provider then they have your network key. I know for example that if you have the internet via sky then the network key is available via your online access. Hope this is of some help. Leanne x

I want to know how i can make my Linksys Router WRT160N work as access point


Hi,

By default Linksys router behaves as Access point. On some router you have to enable the wireless function.

So the following to configure the router Wireless Access Point

Click the below link
http://192.168.1.1

Now it will ask for username and password

Enter username = ( blank) and password = admin
If you can't login using this credentials then you will have to reset the router

If you logged in . Then click on Wireless > Wireless security

On this screen select

Security Mode : WPA Personal
WPA Algorithm : TKIP
WPA shard Key : "enter a password here"
Group Key Renewal : set to default

Click on save settings. After that restart router .
Now your wireless network is secured and you will have to type the WPA shared key inorder to connect to router when it prompts. You can connect as many devices as you wish since it is a access point

Thanks

Vote me If it helps

I have a Linksys BEFSR41 router and a Linksys WAP11 wireless access point. How do I make my home network secure?


Assuming your WAP11 still has the default settings... Open a browser, and type the WAP11's address (192.168.1.251) in the Address Bar and press the Enter key. You should immediately get this password dialog; Leave the User Name field empty, enter "admin" (sans quotes) in the Password field and click OK. That will bring you to the main setup screen, below: connect.jpg wap11setup.jpg
Click the WEP Key Setting button and enter your WEP info.

I get network connection but unable to access my email.


Remove the Linksys Adapter and un-install the Linksys Software from Programs menu...To re-install the Drivers insert the Linksys Setup CD into your CD-ROM drive, When the Welcome screen appears click Exit, connect your USB adapter now...When the Hardware Update Wizard window appears, click Install the software automatically (Recommended) then click Next...Click Finish when the installation is complete...

NOTE: The Hardware Installation screen may appear indicating that the Adapter has not passed Windows Logo testing. Ignore the window and click Continue Anyway to proceed with the installation since the Adapter has been tested and found to work with Windows XP.When Windows has finished installing the driver, click Finish.

Click on Start and goto Control Panel and double click on Network Connections...Right click on Wireless Network Connection and select View Available Wireless Networks"- If you see your wireless network in the list, highlight it by 'single' clicking on it- Now click on the 'Connect' button below- If your wireless network is secured, it would ask you to provide the network key- Provide the wireless network key and confirm it again in the confirmation box and click "Connect".It should work...

I need to lock my linksys wireless router so no one can connect to my wifi?


Hi, this is what you need to do, you need to logon to your router with a browser, then go to security settings an generate a WAP/WEP "Key" Copy/Paste this key to a notepad document and save it. Then save the Routers settings and reboot the router, and the PC. When at desktop next. You will then attempt to logon to your WiFi network, this time however you will be asked for the "Key" open the notepad document and copy/paste, that number you stored, into the box provided, and NOW you WILL be able to access your WiFi. BUT no-one else will be able to without that "Key".
It is all explained in this manual I have included the link below.
It is under Security settings and it shows you step by step.

Wap 54g asking for a network key? what is that? I have a house with a gite when guests come they want to use Wifi and i bought this to extend the signal but they cannot use it as its asking for a key


Contact your ISP provider how to get the WEP key...

Otherwise, just reset your router. there's a reset button at the back. When scanning for netwotk choose linksys with the one that has the best signal (4-5 bars) then connect. You won't be asked for any WEP key anymore.

Hope it helps! ^_^

Wireless router connection problems


Assuming "cannot connect to linksys router directly" means you cannot connect to a Wireless Lan managed by Linksys router,
1) try to connect new computer to LinkSys Router using a Lan cable, add new PC to your network.
2) recover protocol (WEP or WPA) and Key of WLAN (Passphrase or Key: TKIP or AES) either from other PC on same network either from your Router.
3) If you missed actual key you must connect to router and reset it to a new key to be eventually used for every connected device.

Linksys wireless adapter and linksys wrt54g2 router not seeing each other


its possible that the wireless card does not have the correct wireless settings.

Open the linksys wireless monitor on your wife's laptop.
Go to the profiles tab, highlight the default SSID then click on edit at the bottom. It will search for the wireless network, from the list of networks that it will show you, click the name of your wireless network, in if the network is secured you will be ask to put in your network key. Then click connect. Then it will say that you profile was successfully configured. then click connect to network. It will take you back back to the screen where you saw no association to the access point, check if you will now get a new message. On that same screen click the more info button at the upper left hand side. Check the IP address it should be 192.168.1.x. If you have that IP then you can test if you will be albe to get online.

if you still have any problem just reply to this post.

I am connected to the access point but the internet cannot be found


an Access point is to add Wireless to a LAN. (which is ok if you have a Router connected to your LAN).

 

if you have no Router,  and only have an ADSL/Cable modem connected to a PC then you should have got a Router +ADSL/Cable modem instead of an Access point.  you can get routers like this which also have wireless, so you get all the functionality in 1 box

 

Here is a Wireless router, with hub and ADSL +Cable Support
