Hi, i have already installed and all is running fine however i didn't secure the network and now need to add a password how would i do this ?


Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP Address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].

NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the "Address" bar instead.

The router's IP address can be changed by:

  • Running the router's setup CD.
  • Changing it on the router's web-based setup page.

If you forgot the router's IP address you can:

  • Check the router's IP address.
  • Press the Reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds.

    NOTE: This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased. The router's IP address will be "192.168.1.1" and the password will be "admin".

Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name space blank, type in your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
3695-005.png NOTE: If the password of the router has been changed, type the router's new password in the Password field instead.
The router's password can be changed by:

  • Running the router's setup CD.
  • Changing it on the router's web-based setup page.
Step 4:
When the router's web-based setup page appears, click the Wireless tab and select the Wireless Security tab.
Step 5:
For the Security Mode, select WEP.
Step 6:
For Encryption select 104 / 128-bit (26 hex digits).
Step 7:
For the Passphrase, type a wireless network password of your choice such as "MySecretKey," then click Generate.
NOTE: Your password should be unique and can be a combination of numbers and letters of up to 16 characters.
Step 8:
For the TX Key, select any number. This will determine which key you'll be using. In this example we selected number 1.
Step 9:
Copy Key 1 as this will be the key to your wireless network.
Step 10:

Click 4058-005.jpg.

If you don't know the password, then you need to reset the router,
Hold it down the reset button with the help of a pen point and power cycle your router. Then re-do the configuration following the manufacturer's instructions. Then you can set password for your router.satheeshd_0.jpg

I am trying to set up a new printer to a Linksys router model no WRT300 Ver 2.0. I have lost my IP no and also my Network Security Key, Is there any way to retreive these nos Gordon Stephens


The router can be set to factory default by performing either of these two steps:

Resetting the Router Using the Reset Button
Resetting the Router Using the Web-Based Setup Page

NOTE: Pressing the Reset button on the back of the router for 30 seconds will reset your router to its factory default settings. All of the settings of the router will then be erased and the router's IP address will become 192.168.1.1.


Accessing the Router's Web-Based Setup Page
NOTE:To access the router's web-based setup page using Mac, click here.
Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].

NOTE : For WRP400, the default IP address would be "192.168.15.1" and if you place the router behind a primary router with the IP address of "192.168.15.1", then the router will automatically assume a new default IP address, "192.168.16.1".

NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.

The router's IP address can be changed by:


1. Running the router's setup CD.

2. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page.
If you forgot the router's IP address you can:



1. Check the router's IP address. For instructions, click here.

2. Press the Reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds.


NOTE
: This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased. The router's IP address will be "192.168.1.1" and the password will be "admin".


Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.

If you forgot the router's password you need to reset the router. For instructions, click here.

How do you reset a password?


Easy, reset the router itself, should have a tiny pin hole in the back that has a button that you must compress, just google reseting your model.
If you have any problems let me know.

How do i protect my unsecured home wi-fi network? I have a Belkin router IP address 192.168.2.1.


To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

WRT54G linksys router


Hi,
The first thing I would do is check to make sure the desktop with XP has the network card set to "obtain an IP address automatically"

if it is set to obtain an ip address automatically, I need to know the following:

What is the IP addresss of the router?
What is the IP address of the Vista computer?
What is the IP address of the xp computer?

You can find the ip address by going to start, then run, then type cmd and hit enter. at a command prompt type: ipconfig and hit enter.
