You can know your password without disk too. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Tip

How do I set up the wireless network key on my linksys router?


Hi.

This tip applies to any Linksys wireless router.

First you need to access the router control panel , and check wireless settings.

Therouter control panel is accessed connecting a computer to the router.This is done using an Ethernet cable, and entering router IP address in Internet Explorer address bar.

Here the cable:

Here the procedure.

Connect router to computer using a network cable (LAN cable with RJ45 connector).

On computer open Internet explorer and type router IP in the address bar (where you use to typewww.this.that ).The IP address is indicated on router user manual. Ifit has not been changed, 192.168.1.1 is the default for LinkSys brand home broadband routers. Press enter after typing the IP.

Enter router user name and passord. On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer LinkSys routers, both the default usernameand the password are "admin". If that does not work, then defaultsettings had been changed. In that case you will need to reset therouter. See: Reset a LinkSys Router Password.

After entering right ID and password you will open the router control pane as HTML page in Internet Explorer.

In the router control panel choose the wireless setting tab to see or modify the password:

If you do not need to change wireless settings, then write down the encryption key, and set the same key on the laptop. Once the right key is set on the laptop, the connection will start automatically.

If more computersare connecting to this network, then do not reset or change thewireless settings. Simply write down the key on paper and setup thelaptop.

Remember that WAP encryption keys are case sensitive, Wep encryption keys are not.

The simplest encryption to choose is WEP.
WEP means wireless encryption key.

Open the router panel, go to wireless, and find key settings or set your own key.

If you have to set the key:

If you choose WEP 64, then the key that you need to set will be 10 characters key made by numbers and letters from A to F.

Close Internet Explorer to get out of the Linksys control panel.

Regards.

I lost the cd to install my wireless router. I also do not know how to hook it up to my modem


You can get the install program from Linksys http://www.linksysbycisco.com/APAC/en/support/WRT300N/download

There are a bunch of settings so I have included the highlights of what you want to address:

Wireless Router


It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below.


Things to set:


Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.

1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.

2. Set a recognizable system ID.

3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.

4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

I do not have the Linksys CD to install the program on my pc to edit my router's setting. Where can I safely download the software I need?


Step 1: If you have forgotten your LinkSys2_bing.gif router password, the easiest thing to do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.
To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds. Step 2: Once your router is hard reset, you will need to login and reconfigure it again.
To reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router. Note: On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."
Once you are past the login screen, you are able to reconfigure the LinkSys router. You want to go to the management tab and change the administrator password to something else to keep others from accessing your router. Step 3: After changing the administrator password then you will need to enable WEP or WAP security so your neighbors aren't tapping into your wireless network. :)

Need cd for downloading program


Assuming you are trying to install a router.... routers do not use drivers or software. CD's provided with Routers are generally used to walk you through the installation/setup process. Most Linksys routers are default accessible at 192.168.1.1 via your browser. the default username is admin and the password is usually admin. If this does not work, try resetting the router by pressing the rest button located on the back of the unit (small hole) with a paperclip. hold the button in for about 1 minute and then release it... If you are unlucky enough to have a unit with a flashing power lite, this is a dead unit and is not repairable. Look up your model for more specific instructions on www.linksys.com under the support section.

Can't remember password for my router and need it to get on the internet with another device with my linksys


You can accsess the router config menu by using your browser. Type in 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 into your browser. That will bring the screen up to enter your user name and password. If you have not changed it the default is username:blank(no entry) and password is:"admin". If you have forgotten this password then you will need to use a pen to push and hold the reset button for more than 4 seconds to re-set the password to the default(this will clear all the router settings to factory default and disable WEP/WPA settings). Once in the router config menu you can then look at/change the WEP or WPA security key that every computer needs to connect to the router.

Hi,

You can actually configure the wireless security without the CD. Just open a browser and type in the address bar 192.168.1.1.
It will prompt you for the router's username and password. Type in the router's password (if you changed it) if not, the default password is admin.

Go to Wireless>Wireless Security.

On this page you can change your wireless name or SSID and you can enable WEP or WPA/WPA2.

Make sure you that you enter the same wireless keys on your wireless computers as soon as you save the changes on your router because you will lose your connection if you do this on a wireless computer.
