    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

Logon to your routers settings. normally by opening the following web page http://192.168.1.1

  1. Now click on the "wireless" tab
  2. Click on the "Wireless Security" sub tab
  3. In "security mode" select "WEP"
  4. Leave the "default transmit key" as it is
  5. Change "WEP Encyrption" to "128 bit"
  6. In the "Passphrase" enter anything you want. Make it about 8 characters long
  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 lock my linksys


1
Open your web browser.

2
Go to "http://192.168.1.1." This is the URL of your Linksys router's settings utility.

3
Sign in using the router's user name and password. You assigned this information yourself when you initially set up the browser.

4

Click "Wireless," then "Security."

5
Click on the drop-down menu you see on screen and select "WEP." This is a form of encryption for the wireless signal on your router. Type a word or phrase into the box below and click "Generate." This will turn the word or phrase you have selected into an encrypted password. Write down the password that is generated, as you will immediately need it to connect to your wireless network. When you're finished, click "Save." Your Linksys router (and the wireless network it broadcasts) are now locked down.

Thanks.

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.

I have the 4 port Linsky Router.I have a Sony laptop connected to a Sony wireless routerI also have a movie download box. When I connect both to the modem separetely,bolth the laptop and the mvie download...


this is because your wireless router is a router, and your linksys is also a router. Both are attempting to do routing, and they're colliding with each other.

Go into your linksys router's settings, and set it's IP address to have the SAME subnet mask as your wireless router, (The third number in the ip address has to be the same)

e.g. if your wireless router is 192.168.0.1, make sure your linksys is 192.168.0.2
if your wireless router is 192.168.2.1, make sure your linksys is 192.168.2.2

After that, turn OFF the dhcp server on your linksys router (do this in the linksys config page).

After that, plug the LAN port of your linksys to the LAN port of your wireless router.

Your linksys will now be acting like a "Switch" which is an extension of your network. Voila!
