    This is for the Guest post and others who need to know.

    Have you reset the router?
    Check the routers programming and tell the SSID to broadcast
    Login to the router by typing 192.168.1.1 in an open IE window the default user name and pass are both admin
    Change the name of your SSID from linksys to something familiar like your last name.
    Might be better to factory default the router and start the programming over double check your WEP keys if you have any encryption codes set on both router and any PC's.

    If these steps don't resolve the issue just let me know here and we will determine the cause.

Is there any computer connected to the router ?
If not then connect the computer to the router. If you are connecting a wireless computer then disable the wireless connection on the computer. open the set up page of the router. change the wireless network name to something different that you never used before. change the standard channel to 11. save the settings. Try to connect to the wireless network. Check if you see the new network name ? If you see the new then try t connect and see if that works.
This router WRT160N has issues with the firmware.
Upgrade the firmware of the router. power cycle the router.

I am trying to set up security on my Linksys router WRT150N?


Below are some pointers to secure your linksys router:

- Change the default password of the router. By default it is admin. Changing the default password will prevent unwanted users from accessing the setup page of your router. Click here for the steps.

- Change the default SSID or network name. This will allow you to identify your wireless network. Click here for the steps.

- Disable SSID broadcast. This will prevent other users from detecting your wireless network. Click here for the steps. Take note: You will need to manually enter the SSID on your wireless adapter to connect.

- Enabling wireless security on your router. This will require a security key before you can connect to the wireless network. Click here for the steps.

For additional security to your wireless networks, you may refer to this link.

Hope this helps! Happy Holidays!

Connecting a brother hl2170 wirless printer to a linksys wrt54g


Take note all the wireless settings of the router first. Now go to the printer and Press Menu/Settings, look for wireless setup wizard. It should find the network, highlight it and connect. If it asks you for the network key, type your wireless network key. It only allows WPA-Personal(TKIP) and WEP. If you have WPA2 or AES, it will not connect

Hey, need help here. Got linksys wireless-g


the great thing about the linksys brand is that they are owned by cisco and they will walk you thru the set up no matter when and where you bought that thing and they will spend all the time it takes to make you happy with the product. although the person you speak to will be in "new deli" india so they may need to repeat them selves many times.
have you tried access the router interface page with the computer hook directly to the router NOT wirelessly.???
I think I remember the linksys access page is at 10.10.10.100 in your internet explorer tool bar.
