    in internet explorer search bar type in this code here 192.168.0.1 this is your fixed router ip this will bring up the screen for router protocol
    it will ask for name and password unless you changed the password and name it should still be normal
    type=admin for name
    type=password for password this will give info on your routers and specs
    also windows now has a wireless network setup so i believe you should run that to get your wireless router up and running

  7. Press "Generate" and you will see Key 1, 2, 3 and 4 now have 26 Digits in each. Congratulations you have now secured your router and gernated your WEP key.
  8. Now you have 4 keys, you only need to use . But which one??? Easy. Above where, it says "Default Transmit key" and a number, 1-4. The number that selected is the Key you need to use i.e if 1 is selected use the letters in Key 1.

I want to secure my Linksys Wireless G Network. My Linksys Router is connected to the internet. My Laptop is connected to a post of Linksys. I am connected to internet. When I try to go to...


While 192.168.1.1 is the default IP for a Linksys router, it may not be what the router is using. If you have Vista or Windows 7, from the desktop click on the start orb and in the "search programs and files" box type "run". Then click on "run". In the run box type "cmd" and click OK. In the black box type "ipconfig/all" without the quotes. Scroll up or down until you see "default gateway". Whatever IP is listed next to the default gateway is the IP that you should use to get into the router.

How do i lock my linksys router so no one can connect to my wifi.


To lock it, you need to password protect it.

On a computer connected to the linksys now.

Click the link below

192.168.1.1

On the page that comes up, it will ask for a username and password.

type in admin for the password, leave the username blank


You are inside the router..

Click on wireless, then right under it click on wireless security.

Where it says authentication, click it and change it to wpa2 psk

Where it says, PSK / Passphrase / Or Network key .. There is a text box to the right

In that text box is where You will have to type in a new password, and click apply / save settings.

Then.. The router will restart..

You have now set your wireless password.

Let me know how this worked out for you. If my solution helped you, please rate this solution!
It doesn't cost anything and only takes a second, but it is greatly appreciated.

I bought Linksys El000 How do I connect to X Box?


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router. You will needthe name of your wireless network ( SSID) and the wireless network key or passphrase.
You are using E1000 router. This is new series of routers from Linksys.
If you are using the security type WPA/WPA2 mixed then use only the WPA personal and TKIP.
now go to X-box and try to connect to the wireless.
