My Linksys router G is unsecure. 2 years old. How do I secure it. Linksys wants 35.00 to tell me or sell me a new one for 60.00 :)


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Wireless security


I think you should upgrade the firmware on your router.
After upgrading the firmware reset the router and reconfigure it manually.
I will also suggest you to create a new wireless network and use security modem WPA.
Try to connect to the new wireless network and see if that works.

I would like to know how to add a wap key to my router


On the bottom of the router you should find a access code in the form of "http://***.***.***.***" where x are numbers, write that down along with the default username and password that should also be on the bottom of your router. Go to your computer and type the access code into an internet explorer. A login window should pop up, log in and then look for the security options. You should find an option to enable WAP security, once enabled and a password selected make sure to return to your computer and connect to the network using the new password or else it won't connect properly.

I forgot my security code to my Linksys WRT150n wireless router


If you cannot remember the passphrase, you will need to reset the router to factory standard and then reconfigure your settings. On the WRT models, there is a pinhole on the back of the router.

Push the pin in with a pen for about 10 seconds, then unplug the device. While still holding the button in with the pen, plug the router back in. Wait for about 20 seconds, then release. The router should wipe all settings and complete its boot process. You should then be able to reconfigure the settings. This time, write your passphrase down and keep it in a secure place.

I have a linksys for my computer and labtop my daughter needs a network key to get on her laptop where do i find this number.


I am going to assume that you have a Linksys wireless router connected to your computer.

The network key is set in the router by using it's set-up page. Usually, you type in a 26 character code or a text string that is used to form the key.
After setting up the router, you turn on the laptop, scan for available networks, and select yours. Then you enter the network key, which will be exactly same as that you entered into the router setup.

If you are having trouble connecting from the laptop, I suggest you first try setting up the wireless router to use no encryption, just to make sure the laptop can find the network. Once this has been established, activate the security features.
