The passphrase is a phrase you create instead of using hex numbers (phrases are easier to remember than hex numbers) to setup the wireless encryption key.
To configure the Linksys wireless setting, connect a LAN cable from the Linksys LAN port to the computer's LAN port. Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
Then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption.
Use a passphrase to setup the encryption key

Need wpa passphrase


To get the WPA passphrase of the Cisco Linksys E1000 Wireless N router, you need to have a computer that is wired to the device. Log in to the router's setup up page by opening a browser then type in 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. Leave the Username blank and on the Password type "admin". On the setup page click on Wireless then on the sub tab click on the Wireless Security. You will see then the WPA passphrase.

I want to have a passphrase but no key numbers, how do I do this?


Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL, enter the login and password and then go to the wireless settings to configure the encryption setting. I suggest you use WPA or WPA2 encryption, this is the latest and strongest encryption method. You can enter the passphrase instead of hex numbers. Use this passphrase to configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop so it can connect to the Linksys wireless router.

Passphrase recovery


If you are using a Linksys Router like the one pictured hold the small reset button located on the back of the router while you are plugging it in. After it boots up the password should be the default and the wireless will be unsecure so it will have to be reconfigured unless you have saved the setup to a computer. password should be admin with no user name on most models.

Wont connect to my wireless routerits a thinkpad 2658 with a built in wireless connector I have linksys router. 2.4 ghz wireless My other computers in the house can connect just fine


does it see the router?

does it try to connect and ask for the passphrase? It maybe it doesn't like the encryption. you may have to set the router to something simpler like 64bit wep

check what channel the router is on and what channel the wireless card is set to.

Cant find wep key


Your printer is saying that you should secure your wireless internet. Try resetting the router by holding the reset button located on the back for at least 30 seconds.

I'm having problems getting my 2nd computer hooked up on my wrt54g router. please help


Try it wired first, if doesn't work its your basic configuration if it does try removing WEP and running unsecured. If you can connect focus on your WEP settings, if you can't connect focus on the antennae, hardware, and radio settings. If you connect without WEP and can't connect with, use the 64bit hex key it generates instead of your pass phrase. Many wireless cards have trouble using the passphrase.

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.
