WPS button


I have a WRT54G router and there is no WPS button.

This is a cut and paste from Cisco engineer:
Wi-Fi Protected Setup or WPS is a somewhat new feature on most routers. However, I believe that the WRT54g was release prior to this feature. The installation disc for your wireless adapter is trying to circumvent network discovery and the process of entering a wireless password by using the WPS feature. Without using the installation disc to setup the adapter should still be able to connect to your Wi-FI network. Only use the disc to install the drivers for your wireless card and the wireless access utility. After you have done this:
1.Open the wireless utility and you should see available networks
2.Select your Wi-Fi network
3.If the network is open (not password proctected) you should be connected immediately
4.If the network is secured (password protected) then you will prompted to enter your password or preshared key
5.After entering the key you should be granted access to the network

I can't say 100% for sure, but usually if the wi-fi works for a computer, it should work for an iPad. Therefore, I highly doubt you'd have to upgrade the router.

I want to add a laptop to my network or at least get access to the nternet through my Liksys/Cisco E2000. The laptop is running XP. It keeps asking for a WPA key. Can't find the WPA key.


Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) are two security protocols and security certification programs developed by the WF Allianceto secure wireless computer networks. The Alliance defined these in response to serious weaknesses researchers had found in the previous systems.

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.

Linksys WRT160 router doesn't work


Wi-Fi Protected Setup Button
If you have client devices, such as wireless adapters, that
support Wi-Fi Protected Setup, then you can
use Wi-Fi Protected Setup to automatically
configure wireless security for your wireless
network(s).

To use Wi-Fi Protected Setup, run the Setup
Wizard, or refer to the “Wireless > Basic Wireless
Settings” section of “Chapter 3: Advanced
Configuration".

Wi-Fi Protected Setup LED (Blue/Amber) It
lights up blue when wireless security is
enabled. The LED flashes blue for two
minutes during Wi-Fi Protected Setup.
The LED lights up amber if there is an error
during the Wi‑Fi Protected Setup process. Make
sure the client device supports Wi‑Fi Protected
Setup. Wait until the LED is off, and then try again.
The LED flashes amber when a Wi‑Fi Protected
Setup session is active, and a second session
begins. The Router supports one session at a
time. Wait until the LED is off before starting the
next Wi-Fi Protected Setup session.

Conecting my Brother Wireless Printer


Hello....I'll try and help you make a start.

1. To find the settings you need to set up your printer, you will need to login to your router. Open a web browser, as if to view a web page, but instead type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar at the top.

2. If successful, you are prompted for a username and password. If you have not changed these, leave username blank , and enter password: admin. Otherwise, please enter the password you have set.

3. If you log in successfully, you should see the Linksys router configuration screen.

Select the Wireless tab, and go to ‘Basic Wireless Settings’ > Wireless network. You should see here your SSID or Wireless Network Name, as required for your printer setup.

4. Go to ‘Wireless Security’. If the ‘Security Mode’ is set to ‘Disabled’, your system is Open or unsecured: your encryption type will be ‘None’.

If, however, it is set to WEP, your WEP key should be shown below. If it is set to WPA-Personal or similar, your WPA Shared Key should be shown below. This is the key described in your posting as the WPA2-PSK or Pre-Shared Key: it is also known as the network key, security key, or passphrase.

I think this covers all the settings mentioned in your posting. For further information, SecureEasySetup, AOSS and WPS/Wi-fi Protected Setup are shortcut methods to enable security on your router. Recent versions of your router model support SecureEasySetup.

You can download a copy of the manual for your router from the Linksys site: http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WRT54G/download
(You will need to check your router label for the correct version number.)

I hope this helps. This advice is based on the Linksys WRT54G user manual. However, please come back to Fixya if this is not clear or does not work for you.
