By closed, you mean secure the wireless signal? plug a pc directly up to one of the lan ports on the router. Now open a web browser and visit http://192.168.1.1 username is blank and pw is admin by default unless it has been changed in the past.

Now, go to the wireless tab, find the security section, there are usually radio buttons or a drop down showing several types of encryption. WPA-2 should be one of the methods, choose it, create a passphrase for the password and then click save. Now on your laptops or wireless computer, disconnect from the wifi network, click the advanced tab and remove it from your preferred networks, now refresh and look for your wifi network, click connect then enter your passphrase. Repeat for all 4 computers. Your wifi network is now secure.

How to Unlock Addresses on your iPod Wi-Fi


<p>The iPod touch has a built-in wireless network adapter that allows you to join Wi-Fi networks; however, in some cases the wireless access point to implement a Wi-Fi network can be configured to an iPod touch join the network. You can configure the access point so that it no longer blocks the iPod from the wireless network. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Tap "Settings," then "General" on the iPod touch. Touch "About" then scroll down to "Wi-Fi address." Make a note of the 12-digit hexadecimal number listed under that title, which is the address of Medium Access Control encoded in iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect your computer to a numbered port on the back of the wireless router using an Ethernet cable. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Log on to the computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Start a Web browser on your computer. Directly to the router's configuration utility. The tool is listening on a specific web address that depends on the router. For example, if your router is a Linksys WRT54GS, navigate to the address "192.168.1.1". <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Open the configuration menu for the MAC address filtering. For example, in a WRT54GS, click on "Wireless" then "Wireless MAC Filter". <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Remove the iPod's MAC address in the list of prohibitions aimed at the router's configuration utility. For example, in a WRT54GS, click "Edit MAC Filter List". A new window will appear. Double-click the field that the iPod has the MAC address, then press "Backspace" to make the contents of the field. Click "Save Settings". The window is closed. Click "Save Settings" in the main browser window. At this point, your router will be configured for iPod touch for the network. <br />

Not getting in to the enter net.


Make sure your cable/DSL cable from your wall outlet is plugged into the "Internet" port on your router, and a cable from one of the 4-ports is plugged into the network card on your PC. Then, open your browser and type in the IP address of the router (default is 192.168.1.1). The Linksys menu should appear, and you can begin to configure it from there.

Cannot get a second computer on my secure wireless network


Have you set the properties on the second computer to match the security expected by the router? Since one computer works I would compare the settings for the network connection and set the second computer to the same.

I need to set up my linksys WRT54GS. do i set it up on my laptop or desktop? or both?


When you set up your router do always use a wired computer (phisically connected ).
You'll be setting up the router so setting it up through one is enough
Once the router is set up by performing these options
1>start->run->cmd ->youll find default gateway
2>open rsp by typing in default gateway address in brouser tab
3>select ->connection type ->and put in your uname and password for dsl or clone mac address for cable
4>set channell to 11 or 6 for best signal strength
5>set ur ssid(network name) and security (wep preffered) if you want it.
6>once router is set up on the top of the rsp you may see ipstatus:: connected
7>Now just select your network on your laptop
and happy surfing
Let me know if your issue is sorted
