    -- is the access point connected hardwired to a router or to a lan network?

    -- what is the IP address of your access point?

    -- is your computer hardwired or wirelessly connecting to your network?

    -- what is the wireless adapter and the ip address of your computer?

    -- what is your network setup?

-You need to access your router user interface using a wired pc to the router, by typing the router IP on the address bar of your browser then it will ask you for a username and password.
-Then on that page you will have options where you can enable again the wireless security just enable again the security from that there.

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

How to secure my internet connection via smc router


If you plan to have a wireless network, you should set it up so that only people you choose can access it. Here are a few options for wireless network security.

Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
WEP is a widely used network security method. When you enable WEP, you set up a network security key. This key encrypts the information that one computer sends to another computer across your network. The receiving computer needs the key to decode the information so that it's difficult for someone on another computer to get onto your network and access files without your permission.

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)
WPA was created to improve the security of WEP. Like WEP, WPA encrypts information, but it also checks to make sure that the network security key has not been modified. WPA also authenticates users to help ensure that only authorized people can access the network. If your networking hardware works with both WEP and WPA security, we recommend that you use WPA.

There are two types of WPA authentication: WPA and WPA2. WPA is designed to work with all wireless network adapters, but it might not work with older routers or access points. WPA2 is more secure than WPA, but it will not work with some older network adapters. WPA is designed to be used with an 802.1X authentication server, which distributes different keys to each user. This is referred to as WPA-Enterprise or WPA2-Enterprise. It can also be used in a pre-shared key (PSK) mode, where every user is given the same passphrase. This is referred to as WPA-Personal or WPA2-Personal.

802.1X authentication
802.1X authentication can help enhance security for 802.11 wireless networks and wired Ethernet networks. 802.1X uses an authentication server to validate users and provide network access. On wireless networks, 802.1X can work with Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) keys. This type of authentication is typically used when connecting to a workplace network.

IF THIS ALL DOSEN'T WORK TRY THE FOLLOWING:

Wireless network security recommendations
If you have a wireless network, there are some additional security precautions that you should take.

Use a network security key
If you have a wireless network, you should set up a network security key, which turns on encryption. With encryption, people can't connect to your network without the security key. Also, any information that is sent across your network is encrypted so that only computers that have the key to decrypt the information can read it. This can help avert attempts to access your network and files without your permission. Common wireless network encryption methods are Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and WPA-2.

Change the default administrator name and password on your router or access point
If you have a router or access point, you probably used a default name and password to set up the equipment. Most manufacturers use the same default name and password for all of their equipment, which someone could use to access your router or access point without you knowing it. To avoid that risk, change the default administrator user name and password for your router. Check the information that came with your device for instructions about how to change the name and password.

Change the default SSID
Routers and access points use a wireless network name called a service set identifier (SSID). Most manufacturers use the same SSID for all of their routers and access points. We recommend that you change the default SSID to keep your wireless network from overlapping with other wireless networks that might be using the default SSID. It makes it easier for you to identify which wireless network is yours, if there is more than one nearby, because the SSID is typically shown in the list of available networks. Check the information that came with your device for instructions about how to change the default SSID.

Position your router or access point carefully
Wireless signals can transmit a few hundred feet, so the signal from your network could be broadcast outside of your home. You can help limit the area that your wireless signal reaches by positioning your router or access point close to the center of your home rather than near an outside wall or window.

I have forgotten my password on my smc 7004vwbr and need help to reset


I assume this is your wireless KEY
The user manual is here http://www.smc.com/index.cfm?event=downloads.doSearchCriteria&localeCode=EN_GBR&knowsPartNumber=false&productCategory=1&modelNumber=955&partNumber=3552&downloadType=8&os=0
you can choose the exact model from here http://www.smc.com/index.cfm?event=downloads.searchCriteria&localeCode=EN_GBR&knowsPartNumber=false&productCategory=1&downloadType=0&os=0
You should be able to see how to view or reset the wireless password.
Connect your PC to the Router with a LAN cable:- You will need to login to your router- you do this by typing a number into a web browser, Internet explorer, is best as some routers do not work with other browsers The way to log into the router is usually to use the IP address, thats a number which will be in the manual - Page 29 on the manual (33 on pdf screen) To access the Wireless Barricade’s management interface, enter the Wireless Barricade IP address in your Web browser http://192.168.2.1. Then click LOGIN. (By default, there is no password.) Goto the wireless section - secruity and you should be able to see the KEY - IF its all * - the you can type in a newone
I would also remove the wireless profile from your PC - to do this have a read of this link. Remove the wireless profiles from your PC http://mgmcc.forumotion.net/networking-tutorials-f17/removing-an-existing-wireless-profile-t109.htm

Cant put a lcok on my smc router


Manual for WBR14-G2 router [6.2 MB] in pdf format:
http://www.smc.com/files/AG/MN_SMCWBR14-G2.pdf

Keeping others from connecting to your router:
1. Have an "wired only" router login access or for this router "change and disable your SSID". This way you avoid that others can login to
to the router changing your settings: See page 48 of the manual.
1.1 Wireless Network Name (SSID): change the default name SMC
to "any private name" ( and remember for later login )
1.2 Broadcast Wireless Network Name: change from default ENABLE
to DISABLE .

2. Make a secure wireless encryption key for your connection:
see page 87.
2.1 For most secure key select WPA / WPA2 only and SAVE SETTINGS .
2.2 See page 91 for entering and saving your secure key: the password
that must be entered to get access to the router.

My wireless access point SMC


Thank you cgahongayire.

Follow these steps to retrieve the wireless key:

1) Connect a computer wired directly to your accesspoint.
2) Assign a static IP on the computer with the range of 192.168.2.x (x is any number from 3-253).
3) If it prompts you for a user name and a password, user name is admin and password is smcadmin and click Login.
4) Select Advanced Setup. It will give you the window for the access point.
5) Select Security under Radio Interface 2. You can see which security is set on your AP. If it is set as WPA, the shared key is your network key. If WEP, the network key across the selected key is your password.

Take note that these instructions are if the IP settings of the Wireless AP have not been changed. If it is, you have to ask what is the IP first.
