You need to run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", in order to configure the router, i.e., you choose a network-name and password and encryption-level (use: WPA).

Then, only people who know your network-name & password can connect through your router.

  1. Choose a laptop or WiFi device that is currently connected to your network. If none of your devices are connected, use an Ethernet cable and connect a computer or laptop directly to your wireless gateway.
  2. Open a web browser and go to the Admin Tool (http://10.0.0.1) - this is the wireless gateway's administration site. The default settings are:
    • Username: admin
    • Password: password (case-sensitive)

    • Note: If you changed your Admin Tool password previously, you will need to use your new login information. If you don't remember your Admin Tool password, you will need to factory reset your wireless gateway. Instructions on how to do this can be found by reviewing the wireless gateway user guides at Wireless Gateway Guides.
  3. On the left navigation menu, select Gateway, then Connection and then Wi-Fi.

Tip

How to check the wireless settings on your Linksys router


Do you need to know the wireless settings configured in your Linksys wireless router? This tip will you do this, I will show you how this can be done.

First, why do we need to know the wireless setting of your router?

Here are a few reasons why we need to know all of these:

  • We need to know the wireless settings if we wan to add a computer to the wireless network that you already have.
  • If we want to add a wireless devices like, wireless gaming adapters for your gaming system like Xbox.
  • You will also need to know the wireless settings of your network if you want your mobiles phones and other gadgets (iPhone, iPod touch, iPad,etc.) to get online through your wireless network.
What are the things we need to verify off of your router setup page? Here they are:
  • SSID - Wireless Network Name
  • Channel
  • Type of Security
  • Security code or password if there is one enabled.
Here are the steps on how this can be done:

  1. In your computer that is connected to the router, open your browser and type or copy and paste this link to the address bar http://192.168.1.1then hit return.
  2. A login box will pop-up asking for a user name and password. Just leave the user name field blank and type admin in the password field.
    Note:
    admin is the default password, if you can't login using the default password, you might have likely changed it during the initial configuration of your router.
  3. Once you are in the router Setup page, click on the tab at the top that says Wireless. In this page, you can get the following information.

    • Wireless Network Mode - This setting will allow you to choose if you want different types of wireless connection can be accepted by the router, you can choose B, G or Mixed. I recommend you leave it to Mixed.
    • Wireless Network Name / SSID - This is the field where you can put in the name you want for your network.The name you will set here will the name that your router will be broadcasting. By default your router uses the name "linksys". Imagine if the rest of your neighbors has the same brand of router.
    • Wireless Channel - This is the channel or frequency your router is operating on. This can be changed if you are having intermittent issues with your wireless network.
    • Wireless SSID Broadcast - This is one setting that is worth checking. If this is disabled, your router is still operating but the name of your network will be hidden. It's recommended to leave it enabled.

  4. Then click on the sub-tab under the Wireless tab that says Wireless Security. In this page, you will be able to verify the following information about your wireless network security.

    • Security Mode - By default this is set to Disabled. And these are the common security type used or enabled in a small office, home office netowrk.

    • WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) - If this is the type of security that is enabled in your router, you need to look for the "Default Transmit Key" or "Default Tx Key" this will tell you what key you need to use from the list of keys available. See image below for reference.

      beb23b5.jpg

    • WPA Personal (WI-FI Protected Access) - if this the security that you will see, you need to take note of the "WPA Shared Key" this is the password for your wireless netowrk. You can change this any time, and it should be a minimum of 8 characters. Note: If you change your password for the wireless, you wireless computer and other wireless devices that were able to connect fine prior to changing the password, may need to be reconfigured or reconnect and use the new password.

The setup wizard does not show the connect button after following the steps. So we cannot connect to the internet using the dlink dir-412 router.


For each PC that needs to connect to the DIR-412 wirelessly, you must ensure that the correct Wireless Network Name (SSID) and encryption key has been entered.
Windows 7 On your computer, go to Control panel --> Network and Sharing Center and Click on "Connect to a Network then select on the Wireless Network Name (SSID) and enter the password/encrytion key.
Windows XP On your computer, go to Control panel --> Network Connection then under the network task pane select View available wireless networks then then select on the Wireless Network Name (SSID) and enter the password/encrytion key.

How do i hook my mi-fi internet to the xbox 360? i have purchased an adapter and can not figure out how to get the internet working


Here's how to configure your wireless settings:
  1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. If you are prompted to select a wireless network, complete these steps, otherwise skip to step 4.
    1. Select the name of your wireless network.

    Note If you do not see the name of your wireless network, select Advanced Options. Then select Specify Unlisted Network and enter your wireless network name. Select your wireless security type (WEP, WPA, WPA, or No Security). This security type needs to match the security of your wireless network.

  4. Select Configure Network.
  5. On the Basic Settings tab, select Wireless Mode.

    Note If wireless mode is not available and you are using the black Wireless N Networking Adapter, try using the software installation disc included with the adapter.

  8. Enter your wireless network password, and then select Done.

    Note Make sure that you have entered the correct password. An incorrect password might allow your console to connect to your wireless network, but you might receive an IP address error when you test your Xbox LIVE connection.

  9. Press B on your controller, and then select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

How do you change the password to the security code??


Hello, To change the password you will need to log in to the router interface and change it.
1) We need to log in to the router using the default gateway. Press windows + r u will get a run box..in the run box type CMD and hit enter. You will get a black screen. In the black screen type "ipconfig" and hit enter. Now you will see IP add/ sub net mask and defualt gateway. Make a note of your default gateway. 2) Open internet explorer or any browser and deleted everything from the address bar and type .."http://(default gateway..) (Ex: http://192.168.1.1) and hit enter. 3) Now you will be in the router interface.Now you will see either security or wireless click on the option and find something which says password or wireless security and click on that. 4) Now you will see your existing password. You can either change only the password or change the security type ( WEP or WPA) and click on OK/save. Now remeber that if u change the password you will have to reconnect all your wireless devices and if you are using the same network name( wireless name) then you have get a error on your computers or devices as the network doesnt match the requirements. Hence you can either delete the preferred network from your computer( if you want the same network name). To delete you can go to control panel and manage wireless network and delete the current network name and re-connect or you can change the network name( SSID ) on the router interface to a new name which is not saved on your computer and re-connect to your wireless network using all your devices.
Hope this helped.
