Click here for a blog about this issue.
your Linskey should get the authentication code automatically.

If you cannot go there by clicking the link, then copy and paste it to your browser.

    ohh,so you are trying to connect to another router actually.You see it is not possible to connect to other's router they have secured it with a key.If it is your own router then you will need into login into your router and get the SSID

  • Priya darshan Apr 26, 2008

    See i believe that you are trying to connect to some other persons router.Are you at home do you have a router?

  • Priya darshan Apr 26, 2008

    sure i'll explain you..I have no probs

  • Priya darshan Apr 26, 2008

    My first question is that are you connected to your own router?Or you trying to connect somewhere at a public place.See if you have your own router in your home you can login into it and get the SSID.If your trying to connect to someone else's router you will need the his authentication key.

  • Priya darshan Apr 26, 2008

    See as you said that you you picked up one of the wireless network connection from the list which had more bars and it asked you for the Authentiication code right?That's because the owner of that network has setup a key so that no one can access his internet connection.

    Now before you were able to access the net because you were connected to a different one whose owner had not setup any authentication on his router..

Thinkpad having limited to no connectivity


More than likely your password is wrong or the Authentication Type such as WEP, WPA, WPA-2 is wrong.

For Windows XP below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections then Right Click on the Wireless Network Connection and select Properties. When the Properties window open click the Wireless Networks tab. Click on the SSID for your wireless network that you connect to and the Properties window will open. You can change the Authentication Type to match the type set in your wireless router and you can also change your password or Network Key to make sure you have it in correctly.

For Windows Vista below:

Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left of the open window and click Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of the network that you connect to and double click it. When the window opens click the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is the Authentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is the password).

For Windows 7 below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Internet/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left and select Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of the network that you connect to and double click it. When the window opens click the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is the Authentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is the password).

How to put a lock on the linskey wi fi


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default PW (write it down and putit in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on thislink and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

How do I secure?


WIRELESS To configure the Router as a wireless access point for wireless clients (either stationary or roaming), all you need to do is define the radio channel, the Service Set identifier (SSID), and security options.ADVANCED SETUP 47 Channel and SSID You must specify a common radio channel and SSID (Service Set ID) to be used by the Router and all of your wireless clients. Be sure you configure all of your clients to the same values. SSID: The Service Set ID. This should be set to the same value as the other wireless devices in your network. SSID Broadcast: Broadcasting the SSID on the wireless network for easy connection with client PCs. For security reasons, you should disable SSID broadcast. (Default: Enable) Note: The SSID is case sensitive and can consist of up to 32 alphanumeric characters. Wireless Mode: Set the communication mode for the Router. Default: Mixed (11b+11g)Configuring the Wireless Barricade g Router 48 Transmission Rate: Set the rate of data transmitted from the Router. The lower the data rate, the longer the transmission distance. (Default: Fully Automatic.) Channel: The radio channel through which the Router communicates with PCs in its BSS. (Default: 6) Note: The available channel settings are limited by local regulations. g Nitro: In a crowded 2.4 MHz frequency, the connection speed is much lower than the promised 54 Mbps. The g Nitro implemented by Intersil's Prism Nitro technology dramatically enhances your wireless network speeds. It provides up to 50% more throughput in 11g only environment, and improves network throughput by 3 times in mixed mode.ADVANCED SETUP 49 Security If you are transmitting sensitive data across radio channels, you should enable wireless security. Configuring the Wireless Barricade g Router 50 WEP Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) encryption requires you to use the same set of encryption/decryption keys for the Router and all of your wireless clients. WEP mode: You can choose disabled, 64-bit or 128-bit encryption. Key Provisioning: Select a key type of static key or dynamic key. Static WEP Key Setting You may manually enter the keys or automatically generate encryption keys. To manually configure the keys, enter 10 digits for each 64-bit key, or enter 26 digits for the single 128-bit key. (A hexadecimal digit is a number or letter in the range 0-9 or A-F.) For automatic 64-bit security, check the box of Passphrase, enter a passphrase and click SAVE SETTINGS. ADVANCED SETUP 51 Four keys will be generated. Choose a key ID (1-4) from the drop-down list or accept the default key. If you use encryption, configure the same keys used for the Router on each of your wireless clients. Note that Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) protects data transmitted between wireless nodes, but does not protect any transmissions over your wired network or over the Internet. WPA Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) combines Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) and 802.1x mechanisms. It provides dynamic key encryption and 802.1x authentication service. With TKIP, WPA uses 48-bit initialization vectors, calculates an 8-byte message integrity code, and generates an encryption key periodically. For authentication, it allows you to use 802.1x authentication for an environment with a RADIUS server installed on your network. Selecting the Pre-shared Key enables WPA to use the pre-shared key in a SOHO network.Configuring the Wireless Barricade g Router 52 Field Default Parameter Description Cypher suite TKIP One of the security mechanism used by WPA for frame body and CRC frame encryption Authentication 802.1X Select the authentication mode. • 802.1X: It is for an enterprise network with a RADIUS server installed. • Pre-shared Key: It is for a SOHO network without any authentication server installed. Pre-shared key type Passphrase (8~63 characters) Select the key type as in pass-phrase or in 64-Hex characters Pre-shared Key none Specify in pass-phrase style or in 64-Hex characters. Group Key Re_Keying Disable The period of renewing broadcast/ multicast keyADVANCED SETUP 53 802.1X Management access will be checked against the authentication database stored on the Router. If an authentication RADIUS server is used, you must specify the secret key of the Message-Authenticator attribute, i.e., Message Digest-5 (MD5), and the corresponding parameters in the RADIUS Server Parameters field for the remote authentication protocol.Configuring the Wireless Barricade g Router 54 • General Parameters • RADIUS Server Parameters Field Default Parameter Description Enable 802.1X Yes Starts using 802.1x security control. Session Idle Timeout 300 seconds Defines a maximum period of time for which the connection is maintained during inactivity. Re-Authentication Period 3600 seconds Defines a maximum period of time for which the RADIUS server will dynamically re-assign a session key to a connected client station. Quiet Period 60 seconds Defines a maximum period of time for which the Router will wait between failed authentications. Server Type RADIUS Selects the authentication server type. Field Defaults Description Server IP 192.168.1.1 The IP address of the RADIUS server. Server Port 1812 UDP port is used for RADIUS authentication messages. Secret Key none Defines a text string on both the RADIUS client and server to secure RADIUS traffic. The RADIUS server requires MD5 Message-Authenticator attribute for all access request messages. The 802.1x authentication scheme is supported by using the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) over the RADIUS server. NAS-ID none Defines the request identifier of the Network Access Server

How to set up the wireless internet connect on my laptop to this new SBG901 modem?


Short answer: YOU DO NOT.

The cable-modem just converts from the cable-company's signals to/from Ethernet signals.

You use an Ethernet cable to connect the output from the cable-modem to the 'WAN' (or 'Internet') port on a router with wireless capabilities. Then, you configure the router to create your own wireless network, with:
* an SSID ("network name")
* encryption level (use: WPA)
* a password for your network

Then, your wireless device can cite the SSID/password to authenticate to the router.
