How do i make my unsecured network secure? using linksys WRT54G v8


Access the setup page of router by typing 192.168.1.1 in the address bar.

By default, leave the username blank and the password is admin.

Once on the setup page, go to Wireless. Under Basic Wireless settings, change the default SSID Linksys into any name. This will allow you to easily determine which is your wireless network.

Then go to Wireless Security and enable WEP. Type a passphase and click the generate button. Take note of the Network key. Remember that you will use this network key to all wireless computers.

On your wireless computer, view the available wireless networks or site survey. Select your SSID and enter the network key to connect.

I hope this helps!

Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G v6. cannot connect - out of range error message


I believe you will have to lynksys for help. I had a simmular problem and had to have lynksys walk me through resettint a linksys bios problem with that particular problem. You have to change somrthing to set the bios to 10.10.10.103
Or something like that.
I believe you can find Lynksys toll free number on their web site. I also believe it to be with the documentation.
