SOURCE: Security Keys or Passphrase

  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.

SOURCE: Security code for Linksys router

Many Windows XP users have home networks which utilize a router which allows several computers to share the same Internet connection. It is important to know that perimeter security is just as important as keeping your PC locked down. Doing so will prevent successful attacks from the outside world. This article covers how to secure a Linksys WRT54G router.

Here are the step-by-step instructions:

  1. Log in to your router by opening your web browser and going to - this is the address to acces your router. If this is your first time logging in, leave the username field blank and enter 'admin' (without the quote marks of course) as the password.
  2. The first thing to do is back up your current configuration. This way if you set something incorrectly you can always revert back to the original setup. Click the "Administration" tab.
  3. Click "Config Management"
  4. Click the "Backup" button. Choose a location to save your configuration where you will remember.
  5. Click "Management"
  6. If you have not yet created your own router password you will need to do this now. If you have, please skip to step 11.
  7. Next, where it says "Router Password:" enter a new password into the text field.
  8. Enter the password again in the box that says "Re-enter to confirm:".
  9. Then, Click the "Save Settings" button. and wait for the confirmation page.
  10. Click the "Continue" button. From now on when you log in you will need to enter 'admin' as the username and use your new password.
  11. Click the "Security" tab.
  12. Where it says "Firewall Protection:" tick the box that says "Enable" if it is not already selected.
  13. Place a check mark next to the box where it says "Block Anonymous Internet Requests"
  14. Place a check mark next to the box where it says "Filter Multicast"
  15. Place a check mark next to the box where it says "Filter Internet NAT Redirection"
  16. Place a check mark next to the box where it says "Filter IDENT(Port 113)"
  17. Click the "Save Settings" button and wait for the confirmation page.
  18. Click the "Continue" button.
  19. If you are not using your router for incoming http (web) connections, it is a good idea to turn off remote admin. Click the "Administration" tab again. Where it says "Remote Management:" tick the box that says "Disable" if it is not already selected.
  20. Click the "Save Settings" button and wait for the confirmation page.
  21. Click the "Continue" button.
  22. Sometimes disabling this does not work, so to make sure, click "Applications & Gaming"
  23. In the first available slot under the "Application" column, enter "Security".
  24. In the same row, under the "Start" column, enter the number 80.
  25. Enter 80 again in the adjacent box to the right under "End".
  26. For the "Protocol" select "TCP".
  27. Under "IP Address" enter the number 254.
  28. Check the "Enable" box for this entry.
  29. Click the "Save Settings" button and wait for the confirmation page.
  30. Click the "Continue" button. This will divert all incoming connections for web access to the router to a non-existant host. This reduces the chance of a break-in from a nosy outsider.

SOURCE: my acer aspire one netbook

If your former linksys router was NOT N but rather b/g, then the problem is likely that your new router is running N and must be reconfigured to run b/g instead of n on its wireless. The acer aspire one netbook's integrated WiFi is 802.11b/g and the only way to do 802.11n is by using a plug-in USB 802.11n wireless adapter. To manually configure the router's wireless for 802.11b/g or n...
1. Connect the netbook using an ethernet utp cat5 patch cable between one of the four RJ-45 LAN ports on the router to the 10/100 ethernet RJ-45 port on the netbook's left side.
2. Start a browser like Internet Explorer and enter IP address (default for Linksys)
3. On the login window, enter admin for username and admin for default password, then click OK
(The password may be changed if the router's setup software on its CD has been run.)
4. On the Linksys Setup page, click the Wireless tab
5. On the Linksys Wireless page, for Network Mode, click v for drop menu and click BG-Mixed
The preceding is from Chapter 3: Advanced Configuration which starts at page 16 of the 59-page Linksys E2000 user guide/manual. If you are missing this manual, it can be obtained by clicking...

A final note: The easiest way to setup the router is to run its setup software on the CD that comes with it. If you want to do this with the netbook (which doesn't have an internal CD drive), an external CD drive would have to be plugged into one of its USB ports.

I have a clearwire modem. I have to locate it 80 ft from my two home desktops and laptop. i need to know how to best do this. i have an e2000 router that i was hoping to use a wre54g range extender...

The Linksys E2000 router is N series router and the WRE54G is G range expander.
WRE54G is only computer with the WRT54G and WRT54GS routers.
You have E2000 router. I believe that router is capable of broadcasting the wireless signal upto 100 fts.
As Linksys says that router is capable of signal up 200 - 300 fts, but it is not.
You can try changing the wireless channel on the router to increase the signal.
Open the setup page of the router.
Go to wireless tab and change the configuration view to manual.
Try changing the channel to 11, 9, 6 ,1. See if that works.
