I want to change the security type of my wifi from WPA2-personal to WEP or pre-shared key(PSK) but i dont know how to do it


Hey there! First of all you will need to go into your Router administration panel, to do this, plug in a LAN cable from one of the available ports on the router into your PC. Then open up your browser and type 192.168.1.1
You will get a login prompt, usually the username is admin and the password is admin but if that doesn't work look at the bottom of your Router for the specific details.
Once you are there go to the "Wireless" configuration tab, under Security change WPA2-Personal to WEP or PSK. After that, unplug your cable from your PC and restart your router.
Have fun :)

Tip

Wireless Network Reset and Setup - Linksys


If you are unable to connect your laptop wireless to your Linksys wireless access point/router, the easiest and fastest way to get going is to reset your router to the factory defaults. This will make your router work like the day you bought it.

There are 2 steps involved Reset your router, Setup/Secure a new router

Reset your router:

  • Unplug your DSL/Cable modem from power (not your access point/router) Leave this unplugged for now


Next
  • On the rear of your Linksys router you will find a small RESET button
  • With the power still on the router, Press and hold (with a pin/pen tip) the RESET button for 30 seconds.
  • Release the RESET button a wait 15 seconds for the router to reboot


almost done....
  • Unplug your Linksys router from power
  • Plug your DSL/Cable modem back in to power
  • Wait 1 minute for the modem to boot up
  • Be sure the ethernet (cat5) cable from your modem is securely plugged into the WAN port on the back of your Linksys router. This is usually labeled WAN or Internet above the jack
  • Plug your Linksys router back into power.


You will now be able to connect to the internet with your wireless device. I would advise that you follow the next steps in securing your wireless network.


Setup/Secure a new router

Log into your router
  • Type 192.168.1.1 into your web browser and hit enter
  • In the login fields (case sensitive):
  • Username: leave_this_field_blank
  • Password: admin
  • Click OK


Once in the web interface for your router
  • Click Wireless tab - Basic Wireless Settings
  • Find the Wireless Network Name (SSID) field
  • change this to your new network name (this is the name you will see when you connect through your wireless device)
  • Find the Wireless Channel field
  • Change this from 6 (default) to 1 or 11

  • Click on Wireless Security
  • Find the Security Mode field
  • Choose WPA2 - Personal
  • WPA Algorithm choose AES
  • WPA Shared Key type in your new password you will use to connect to your network

Click Save Changes and your router will now reboot. You will now need to enter in that same password (WPA Shared Key) when you first connect with your laptop to your wireless network

How do i hook up a wireless router to a cable router


If you already have a cable router, then you don't want to use a wireless router. You will want to use a wireless access point instead.
The reason for this is that anything plugged-in to your cable router will not be able to access anything connected to the wireless router due to the NAT firewall in the wireless router.
If the wireless router has the option to make it a "Gateway", then that will fix this issue; otherwise, take the router back and buy a wireless access point instead.
As for how you hook up the wireless router to the cable router, you have to unplug the power cord of the cable router for about 15 minutes before hooking the Ethernet jack from it to the wireless router.
Once the 15 minutes have passed, you then can plug the Ethernet cable from the wireless router "WAN" port into an Ethernet port on the cable router and then plug-in the power cord of the cable router.
Once the cable router is finished syncing-up, the cable router should provide an IP address to the wireless router.
If you really have a cable modem instead of a cable router, then you won't have to put the wireless router into gateway mode.

Secure my wireless internet


Well, there are two things that go into securing a router. First, a user name and password for logging in and second a security access key. Let me explain how to set up both of them:

Please retrieve these instructions in Notepad because you will be losing internet connection as you perform the steps.

1) First you need to log in to make changes to the router. The default IP address for that is 192.168.1.1. Type that into the address bar and press enter. You will be asked for login details. Here's the default login:
ID: (Leave blank)
Pass: admin (case sensitive)

2) Now you need to change those default login details to your personal ones.
Click on Administration tab -> You will see multiple dots in the password field -> Erase them and enter a personal password -> Scroll down and click save settings -> You will be asked to re login with the new password.
A strong password is the one with numbers, letters and different cases. Example: Cbr600RR

3) Next you need to secure your router's wireless internet connection with an access key. Most people use the WEP security. That however, is not the best option. Several programs are available online that can crack a WEP key. I will suggest a better option: WPA.
Click on Wireless Tab -> Change the Wireless Network Name (SSID) from "linksys" to a personal one. This is optional but recommended so that you can search for your internet connection faster if there are multiple available in your neighborhood (always the case in apartments).
Under Wireless Channel select 10 or 11. This helps keep your connection faster since most neighboring routers2_bing.gif will broadcast at the default channel 6 which leads to interference and disconnection. Click Save settings when you are done. The router takes some time to save those settings and restart itself.

4) Go to Wireless tab again -> Wireless Security -> Security Mode -> WEP -> Passphrase -> Enter a favorite word -> Generate -> Select any one of the four generated keys and copy it (Right click -> Copy). Note down this key for later use.
Go back to Security Mode -> WPA Personal -> WPA Shared Key -> Paste the copied key here -> Save settings. That will be your to connect to your router. Please note this down somewhere safe as you will need it to let other computers connect as well.

You have successfully secured your router. Let me know if you need more help. Take care!

Switched internet provider, wireless router will not work


The router works the same with either dsl or cable modems. If the router was working with your other computers before, then it should work now, you don't have to change anything.

Attempted to set up wireless security - lost all wireless


Sure the reset button will fix this, because it will reset the router tofactory defaults and erase all personal settings.

The better and easier way is to connect one of your clients/computers to the router via an Ethernet cable, login to your router (The default is http://192.168.2.1), go back to your wireless settings and either write down the key or delete it.

Now connect from another computer and provide the network key when asked for it. Make sure that broadcasting the SSID is enabled in your router, so computers can "see" the network. (Look at page 47 of your manual for details.)

If you don't have a manual, you can download it here.

If you have any more questions or need assistance with any of these steps, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Keep losing internet signal


Have you tried updating the firmware of your router? Updating the firmware of the router will fix that issue. Make sure after updating the router's firmware, hard reset the router. To hard reset it, Press the reset button on the back of the router for about 20 seconds, then unplug the power for 30 seconds then plug it back. Reconfigure the wireless settings of the router. Make sure to change the wireless channel of the router to channel 11 or 1 and not 6 to avoid interference.
