Start Internet Explorer.
Login to the web-server "inside" the router.
Run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard",
to enable 'WPA' and to set a password/passphrase.

Using a Linksys WRT160N how do I connect two different devices with different security settings? One using WEP and the other using WPA2?


You can't connect two different devices on WEP and WPA2. It's one or the other. I suggest using WPA2 because it is uncrackable thus far. WEP can be cracked in under a minute.

Pass pharse


Log on to the router, go to wireless security.
I would choose WPA ( you choose the password)
WEP is much weaker, try not to use WEP ( It gives you a pass phrase/key)

My Linksys will not connect to my WII


Well the first thing is that you have WRT160N router. This router has issues with the firmware. So first you will need to upgrade the firmware of the router. Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's web site. Connect your computer to the router. Open the router page. Click on Administration tab. Just below administration you will find firmware upgrade subtab. If you click on it, you will find the browse option. Browse the file that you have downloaded from the web site. and Click upgrade.
For WII, you will also need to change the MTU to 1365 and open some port numbers on the router.

I am new at this


There is nothing to Delete. Simply unplug the old and plug in the new. A WEP key is a way to ensure a small amount of encryption in the Wireless network. If the new Router has WPA - you should use that instead of WEP as the WIRELESS Encryption. There should be a "quick start guide" to help you install the new Router.

Wep password


If you forgot the WEP of your wireless network, but you think you left the admin password the default, then you can access the router's configuration utility by opening a web browser to http://192.168.0.1 (or 192.168.1.1, depending on your network) and entering the default admin password. You can then go to the wireless security area and enter a new WEP and this time, write it down! :-)

Hope this helps!

What is a wep key


It is the security code for your router. Most are on the bottom of the router, sometimes there will be two WEP & WPA.

This is unless you have changed it to a different one, if so this is the code you need to enter.
