Do you have any computer connected to the router?
If not then connect the computer to the router with the Ethernet cable.
open the internet browser and in the address bar type the number 192.168.1.
Log in to the router setup page using the default password ' admin'. If admin password is not working then try some different password that you use most commonly.
If nothing is working then you will need to reset the router and reconfigure the router.

How do you enable security for linksys wireless routers


  1. Type "http://192.168.1.1" into your Internet browser, and press "Enter."
  2. When login page opens up, type the username and password for your wireless router.Depending on your router brand, you may have "admin" and "password" as the respective default username and password. But again, you must refer to your wireless router support manual.
  3. Once logged in, click "Wireless Security" and Select "WEP" as the security encryption type
  4. Set the default transmit key to "1".
  5. Type in a passphrase and click "Generate". This generates random passkeys.
  6. Note down your network's SSID (listed on the security page) and the first WEP key. This is the information that you will need when trying to allow new connection through the wireless network.

I had my router as secure but i had to reset it now it is unsecure. how do i get it back to secures?


If you reset the router, log in via your browser, go to wireless/security and set your security to WPA2.
If you do not have your manual, google "Linksys wrt150n setup"

About 1 yr ago, I allowed my neighbor to connect w/my linksys router. Now, our IPS has instituted a "fair access policy," and I need to remove my neighbor from my network. Can u tell me how to do this?


Change the WEp/WPA security key and don't let eh neighbor have it. That will kick him out of the router. You could also go into the router table and look at the MAC address associated with his IP and block that IP address and that will kick him out as well. If you block his IP and your router is set for DHCP he can log out and log back in and get a new IP address. Blocking by MAC address and using WEP/WPA security key is the best way to block unauthorized access to your router. The WEP/WPA key will be located on the page that router Wireless Security settings are on when you access your router.

How do i block someone from illegally stealing my wireless intern


Hello,

You have two options to stop someone from stealing your wireles connection.

The first is to use a more secure encryption.
Use WPA2 personnal with AES encryption.
You can set this security mode by logging on to your router and changinhg the wireless security.

The next solution is to turn on MAC filtering and make sure her computer is not listed as a safe MAC address.
This is also turned on from the router.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Pat

How to get rid of old "unsecured" wireless network


SLRUSS63,

Are you referring to the Linksys SSID showing up when you browse for available wireless networks? Also, are you in an apartment building or otherwise relatively close to other houses/residents? It is possible that you and a neighbor both have Linksys APs and if neither was secured originally, your neighbor could have been connecting to your AP and vice versa. This definitely would explain slowness especially if you or your neighbor does any type of video or audio streaming.

One way to test this is to shutoff your Linksys router and view available wireless networks on your computer. If "Linksys" still shows up, it is most likely someone else's router/AP.

As long as your SSID shows up and you can only connect to it via the WEP key, your AP is secure.

Let me know if you get different results than I explained above.

Wireless router connection unsecured


Open a browser and type in the address bar 192.168.1.1
It'll prompt you for a username and password, if you used the Linksys Installation CD, remember the username and password that you provided. Else, leave the username blank and key in admin for the password.

Once inside the router, click the Wireless Tab then the Wireless Security sub-tab.
Enable and choose WPA Personal and provide a password for your wireless network at the WPA Shared Key section.
Click Save settings at the bottom.

Your computers will need to reconnect to your network and asked for the security password.

Renaming Linksys BEFSX41 router and securing it.


It sound to me that you have a wireless card in your laptop and you are picking up your neighbors wireless router!!!! which has no SSID set, thus "default" and has no encryption set, thus "unsecured network". Turn off your wireless adapter The only security on a Non-Wireless router is turning on the firewall. It should be enabled by default. The other thing would be to change the password on your router, but since you do not have a wireless router, then it is pointless, unless you do not want someone in your house to access the router settings and make changes. Ever then, if someone in your house that is physically connected to the router with a "cable" could alway walk to the router and stick a pin in the the "reset" hole in the back of the router to reset wipe any changes that was made, so a password is pointless as far as I am concerned for non-wirelss routers. open your browser and type http://192.168.1.1 Admin User name: Leave it blank Password: admin Once you login you can change your password if you like.
