I need to know the network key for my Linksys routerWRT54GL-EU in order to establish a wireless LAN to my PC (a Fujitsu moidel) Best regards, Preben Lund prebenlund@plt.dk


When you first installed your router, you used the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard" to"
* set an SSID ("network-name") for your network.
* set an encryption-level. Hint: use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'.
* set a password or pass-phrase for your network.

Enter that password. Or, rerun that Wizard, to create new settings.

Hi jerryablake,

Welcome to Fixya. You don't need to reinstall the cd of the router, You can access the router page so that you will be able to obtain the password or Network Key.

ITo access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is admin and the password is admin.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security look for the Network Key or Passphrase. You can personalize your Network Key. The Network Key serves as a password on your network to make it secure. Then Save the settings

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

I would like to password the router. I never set up the password when I installed the router. what is the best way to install the new password?


The password can only be changed by the management software for your router. If you do not have the network manager software on your computer, then use the installation CD or download it on-line. You must physically connect the router to your computer with an ethernet cable. The rest should be easy: changing the network name, selecting security, setting password. Good luck. Bry

I had Best Buy geek squad set up my computer and wirelless connection and now when I try to set up my Kindle they say I need a wireless password which I do not have. I will need to have everything...


The Geek Squad set a password inside your router for the wireless network,
and set an 'SSID' value for the name of your wireless network.

They should have told you what the password and SSID are.

How do I install linksys router


Hi there, and welcome to FixYa 
Connect the pc with a cable to any of the four LAN connections on the back of the router.
DO SET THE ADMIN password as the first thing you do.
goto -> administration -> management, fill out the router password and reenter it to confirm.
Give your network a name (SSID) so that you can find yours if there is more around you. Network name are called SSID, short for service set identifier
goto -> wireless -> basic wireless settingsWireless Network Mode : set to mixed,  
Wireless Network Name (SSID), set a name well known to you, NOT your address :-)
now set the  Wireless Channel :  to any other than channel 6, which is the one everybody use. Too much electrical noise might interfere with your transmitting. 
Now, go to Wireless -> Wireless connection, to set the Encryption security settings.
Set security mode to WEP,
Set the Transmit key to your choice, if you know that you wireless card has 4 keys as well, I would use key 4.
Set WEP encryption to: 128 bit 26 hex digits.
Go down to key 4, and find combination of numbers and the letters a, b, c, d, e or f.
(ex. 414243444546474849404a4b4c) = 26 hex digits. 
Save settings.
Now, before you leave, WRITE DOWN your SSID, your password and key 4 with your settings, as you need to set your wireless card with the same settings.
Start -> settings -> network and right click your wireless connection and click properties.
At the top, choose Wireless network, find your network, (your SSID) choose properties and set these settings as you wrote down from the router.
Now, remove the cable and logon wireless.

/Teis
Do let me know how you are getting along.

No connection to desktop, but great connection to laptop???


Hi Lindsay,

The very first thing that you need to do is to personalize the wireless settings of your ultra range plus router. Since your laptop is wired directlty to the router and is working properly, you can access the router's GUI to personalize the wireless settings. Open internet explorer on the working computer and type http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar, you will be prompted to enter a username and password, by default there is no username and the password is "admin" if you have setup a password using the setup cd then use that one.
Now your inside the setup page of your wireless router, look for the tab the say's Wireless and below you will find four sub menu namely; Basic Wireless Settings, Wireless Security, Wireless Mac Address and Advance Wireless Settings.
Under Basic wireless settings change the Wireless Network Name(SSID) to something you prefer(this is a must).
For the Radio Band, set to Wide 40Mhz. Wide Channel(9), Standard Channel(11) now click on "Save Settings".
Now got to Wireless Security and for the Mode choose(WPA Personal/PSK Personal) Enter a 8 or more digit password under passphrase and click "Save Settings".

Now your done setting up your wireless router it's now time to connect your desktop wirelessly.

If your using a linksys wireless usb network adapter more or less you have also installed the WLAN Uiltility but personally I use the built in WLAN of XP and Vista.

Using the linksys WLAN Utility for to the Profiles tab and highlight default.
Click Edit and it will provide a list of available network(SSID) that your computer detects.
Select the name(SSID) that you provided the router earlier and click connect.
It will not prompt you to enter the WPA Key also known as passphrase(remember the 8 or more digit password) then click Connect to the Network.

You should now have a valid internet connection wirelessly on your desktop.

Oh and for your 2nd question the answer is No, since you already purchased and installed a wireless usb network adapter for the desktop computer you don't need to purchase a long ethernet cable or move the desktop to where the route is.


Hope this will help you get connected.

Regards

New Router and Laptop no wirless connection after 4 hrs .


There are a couple of ways to go on this one..first plug into the router with a netwrok cable, NOT via wireless.

If you have just opened the box on the netgear router you would need to configure some basic settings such as the SSID (name of the router) the country the router is in and maybe some type of security settings...often this cannot be done via a wireless connection at first, you must connect your laptop's netowrk port to a touter port on the rear of the Netgear. Open I.E. and navigate to something like http://192.168.0.1 (look on the sticker on the botton of the Netgear) setup the basics then try your wireless link using the settings you programmed.
