Question about Linksys WPC54G Wireless-G Notebook Adapter V2.0 (WPC54C)

1 Answer

I need passphrase and WEP Key 1 for a Linksys Wireless-G Adapter model #WPC54G.

I have Cox cable for my internet connection and VOIP/Vonage for my phones, through a wired Lynksys router. I also have a wireless Lynksys router and the router card type for my notebook, but when I tried, for the first time, to use the router card in the notebook here at home, it asked me for those 2 terms above.

I am not computer savvy. Can anyone help me? I don't know how to look up those terms or where to look to find them.

Thanks. Stephanie

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Can't find my WEP or Passphrase key. Please help!


The WEP or Passphrase encryption key is in the router's wireless settings.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the USB wireless card in the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/computers can communicate with your wireless router.

My linksys wpc54g repeatedly says "network cable unplugged" then reconnects


WPC54g is a wireless adapter. The message that you are getting is the message for the Local area connection. This message has nothing to do with the WPC54G. This message is for the wired connection and not for the wireless connection.

How can i connect to enternet f i have a linksys wireless g notebook adapter with model no. WPC54g ver. 2


hi

this is a connector to the laptop and now you'll need a source...

a source can be a service provider with wireless connection or a free hotspots or

a home based wired internet connection with wireless router

if you have a wireless router then you may have to call the ISP for the DNS server settings if any required but for others i think the auto IP configuration settings should work fine

cheers
pls rate if this was any help

Encryptiing


Is your router from linksys also? How many wireless computers do you have? Note that if you encrypt your router, you need to make sure that each wireless computer gets the exact encryption keys you will use on the router. Usually the linksys router page can be accessed via http://192.168.1.1. Leave username blank, password is "admin". Go to Wireless >> Wireless Security. Select WEP-128 key. Enter in a passphrase and hit generate. Copy key #1 on a piece of paper (make sure it's 26 characters) and click apply. Next, go to each wireless computer and use encryption key#1 when you connect to the linksys router.

Wep passphrase


You will be able to get the wep key or passphrase from the wireless router or access point.

To some routers, the SSID (wireless network name) and WEP keys are found underneath the router itself. It you cannot see any, then you will need to access the setup page of the router.

This depends on what is the brand of your router.

If you let me know the brand and model I might be able to help you in checking the settings.

Connects to Access Point but the internet cannot be found


The main reason why you have this error message because your computer is not getting a valid IP address from teh wireless network, and the reason why its not getting a valid IP address is the wireless security or sometimes called WEP/WPA kay are not type in to the correct place, If you have a WEP enable on your wireless network you will have two option on the Linksys WLAN monitor where you can type in teh security key, you will see two boxes there when you try to connect to the secured network one says Passohrase and one says WEP key1 and if yuo have a wireless key that has a total of 10 or 26 key character you need to type that on the WEP key1 box leave the passphrase blank...But if it still didn't work you can contact this number for help 1-877-787-8749....

WUSB54GC model wireless adapter won't connect after months of use


Instead of using the passphrase use the wep key 1 that you created on the router page when you generate it using the passphrase.

Then when you try to connect using the linksys wireless monitor just leave the passphrase blank and type in the wep key1 box the key that I mentioned earlier.

Security Keys or Passphrase


  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.

I am connected to the access point but the internet cannot be found


an Access point is to add Wireless to a LAN. (which is ok if you have a Router connected to your LAN).

 

if you have no Router,  and only have an ADSL/Cable modem connected to a PC then you should have got a Router +ADSL/Cable modem instead of an Access point.  you can get routers like this which also have wireless, so you get all the functionality in 1 box

 

Here is a Wireless router, with hub and ADSL +Cable Support
