    Do you know how to access your router user interface?
    how many computer do you have and is there a computer wired to your router?

  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.

Hasa yellow excla. mark at and says limited or no


If you have a Linksys router that is connected to your modem then you might want to do the following:

It could be that the Security Key is not correct. Make sure that the right security key is being used.

If you have already configured your router with the security key then to the following.

Open up an Internet Explorer Browswer page on a computer that is connected on the network already. Type in the address bar 192.168.1.1 and hit enter.

A box should pop up and request that you log in. Place in your password that you had created. If you have never created a password then leave the username blank and type in the password box admin in lower case.

Click on the Wireless Tab
Click on the Sub tab under wireless then Wireless Security. In this window you will find the security key.. Write the correct key down not the passphrase.

Hope that helps.

I forgot my security code to my Linksys WRT150n wireless router


If you cannot remember the passphrase, you will need to reset the router to factory standard and then reconfigure your settings. On the WRT models, there is a pinhole on the back of the router.

Push the pin in with a pen for about 10 seconds, then unplug the device. While still holding the button in with the pen, plug the router back in. Wait for about 20 seconds, then release. The router should wipe all settings and complete its boot process. You should then be able to reconfigure the settings. This time, write your passphrase down and keep it in a secure place.

Why won't it connect to the internet?


First, you will need to know the wireless settings (such as Wireless network name and Wireless security) on the wireless access-point or router.

Once you have those settings, use the WUSB54GSC wireless utility. It should show the wireless network name of your access-point. Just select the name and click connect then type the passphrase or wireless security key, if enabled.

Encryptiing


Is your router from linksys also? How many wireless computers do you have? Note that if you encrypt your router, you need to make sure that each wireless computer gets the exact encryption keys you will use on the router. Usually the linksys router page can be accessed via http://192.168.1.1. Leave username blank, password is "admin". Go to Wireless >> Wireless Security. Select WEP-128 key. Enter in a passphrase and hit generate. Copy key #1 on a piece of paper (make sure it's 26 characters) and click apply. Next, go to each wireless computer and use encryption key#1 when you connect to the linksys router.

How do i locate my security passphrase


Step 1:
Access the router’s web-based setup page. Open a browser and type in 192.168.1.1 ( on a Linksys router) and login (default password is admin)
Step 2:
When the router’s web-based, setup page appears, click Wireless and select Wireless Security.There you should see your encryption security key or paraphrase.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Wep passphrase


You will be able to get the wep key or passphrase from the wireless router or access point.

To some routers, the SSID (wireless network name) and WEP keys are found underneath the router itself. It you cannot see any, then you will need to access the setup page of the router.

This depends on what is the brand of your router.

If you let me know the brand and model I might be able to help you in checking the settings.

WUSB54GC model wireless adapter won't connect after months of use


Instead of using the passphrase use the wep key 1 that you created on the router page when you generate it using the passphrase.

Then when you try to connect using the linksys wireless monitor just leave the passphrase blank and type in the wep key1 box the key that I mentioned earlier.
