First, your router is old, go pickup a new one that supports the G standard, don't worry it will fall back to B standard or better yet get an N standard router. To setup wireless security directly connect a pc via cat5 data cable to one of the switch ports on the router (not the wan) and login to the web innerface, click the wireless tab, now look for the security or encrypted options. Most routers support WPA-2 encryption where you enter a phrase of 2 or 3 words if your router only supports web encryption go buy a new router. Save it, then go to your pc, disconnect, remove the wifi ssid from your managed wireless list refresh and search for the ssid of your wireless signal (name), now connect and the router should challenge you for your WPA pass phrase you setup in the router. Now your wifi ssid is secure and all connections will require the passphrase.

How do I find my wifi password


if this is the first time setup, then you would consult the docs that came with it for the 'default' password.

If not, then you can log-in to the Router, (which requires yet another password...) and look at it, or at the least allow you to change it to something else.

Apple tv linksys password


You can find your WiFi security info by logging into the router

You will have to be connected with an Ethernet cable or use a computer that is already connected to your WiFi network.

1.Open a web browser and enter 192.168.1.1
2.You will get a login page for your router. Usually the login formation is as follows:
admin/admin
3.Once you have logged in you want to locate the wireless menu on the page.
4.you will want to then select the wireless security menu
5.Here you will find the password for your WiFi network

They keep saying i am keying in the wrong wireless password. Is this the router password or am i suppose to find another one. please help


My Linksys wireless router uses a different password to setup a wireless connection with the SSID (wireless account name) than the password for logging into the router for administrative purposes.

So I suspect you need a different password. However, without knowing which make/model of router you have, I can't help you identify where to find the information for your wireless setup.

Please add a comment with your router information for additional assistance.

I hope this helps.

Cant get WiFi conection keeps asking for password cannot remember it


Try resetting the router back to factory default, and set up again with a new password. What make and model of router are you using? Just ran into this issue with neighbors 2 new Kindles, which connect fine to my NetGear router, but will not connect to their Linksys WRT54GS router.

Forgot password to WiFi How do I find out what it


To find the password/passphrase on the Linksys router, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router. On older models the username is left blank and the password is “admin”. On newer models, both the username and password is “admin”.

Once you get in to the router management tool, look for the security portion. There you will find the password or passphrase you are using for your WEP or WPA security encryption.

I have a i pod touch and it wont link with linksys


Well you need to check the wifi settings in your ipode. Make the same settings which you have configured in your linksys Router.

If you have enabled Mac filtering on the Linksys router then u need to add the mac address of your ipod in the list.

I think that would solve your problem.

Wireless conectivity


I had the same problem with this model. I was trying everything including resetting the Linksys to a factory default and loading latest firmware, nothing helped. I had to replace the Linksys to fix the problem. I think your radio on the Linksys is not working even you have a signal showing on your laptop.
