Question about Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Broadband Router (LS-WRT54G)

2 Answers

I was trying to change a setting on my router and I clicked something I shouldn't have. I have a WRT54G V8 model. I was on the wireless site 192.???.001.1 (just know I was on). I was under the advanceds tab and clicked something, I think it was "Reset Security Settings". Now I have no internet connection. What can I do to fix?

The most effective fix when you do not know for certain the error is to reset the router and start fresh.<br />To do a reset:<br />There is a small button on the back of the router (near the power cord) press and hold it for 60 seconds.<br />Then you can access it with a wire connected PC at 192.168.1.1<br />The log-in name will be blank and the password will be admin.<br />Good luck, and happy surfing.<br /><br />

All wired ports are sending and recieving data but, my wi fi won't appear.


This can be caused by basic wireless settings of the router or the old firmware of the device especially if you have wrt54g version 5/6 router. To check these settings, follow these steps:

  1. Using a computer that is plugged into the router directly with a network cable, open a web browser.
  2. In the "Address Bar" type http://192.168.1.1 and press Enter.
  3. A box should appear asking for a "User Name" and a "Password". Leave the "User Name" field empty, and type your WRT54G router password into the "Password" field (the default "Password" is admin) and click the OK button or press [Enter].
  4. The WRT54G "Setup" page should now appear. Click onto the Wireless page.
  5. When the "Wireless" page loads, you should be on the Basic Wireless Settings sub-section.

Please check the following:

  1. "Wireless Network Mode": should be Mixed.
  2. "Wireless Network Name": should not be linksys (if it is 'linksys", try a different SSID name like linksys123, or your last name).
  3. "Wireless Channel": if the channel is set to "6 - 2.437GHz", change it to either "1 - 2.412GHz", or "11 - 2.462GHz".
  4. "Wireless SSID Broadcast": should be Enable.
  5. Click on the Save Settings button toward the bottom of the page to save changes. Click Continue when rompted to reload the page.
  6. Next, click onto the Wireless Security page(under Wireless tab). Click the WPA sub-section (depending on your router firmware version, this sub-section might also be labeled "Wireless").
  7. The WRT54G settings have been changed. You can now configure your wireless adapters and software with the same settings as your router, and restart the computers to check the connections.

Note : Make sure as well the wireless switch of your laptop is on.

Hi, I would like to have a manual for my WRT 54G V8 router.


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

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!
