Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

Wireless internet I had the geek squad set up my wireless almost two years ago. They left me with a document that would help me set up another computer with the wireless connection. The original computer this was done on is no longer working but I still have the document. I just got a laptop. None of the information on the document include the security key or password. How can I find this information? Do I have to set up a new connection, new name, password etc? If so, how? Do I have to hire the Geek Squad again to fix this problem? Is it a problem between XP and Vista? HELP!! This is vital to my business. Becky

Becky, do you still have a computer wired to the router? If so do you know if the Geek's changed the login password to the router itself?

    Sorry Becky, that was supposed to be a clarifiction request. I still believe I can walk you through getting to your web based settings page of your router.

All you have to do is to find the pass-phrase (or password) for your wi-fi. Start your favorite browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla etc) and at the address line type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter. This address is the typical address for linksys routers. At the page with the router's settings that will come up, go at the wireless tab and after this at the wireless security tab. There is an area for pass-phrase, write down at a piece of paper the phrase in this area because this is the pass-phrase you have to provide at the e-reader when it will ask you for a password to connect to the Wi-Fi.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

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.

Cannot find wireless network on Secondary computer


Try this, unplug the power from your modem, wait 25 seconds and plug it back in. Unplug the power cord from your router and wait 10 seconds.. plug it back in. Wait for the Wan/Ready/Internet light on your modem to stop flashing or go to its default position. Reboot your 2ndary computer. Try the internet again. If this does not help please post again and we will dig deeper! Good Luck!

No wireless connection


You need to have an Internet Service Provider. You connect the router to a modem from the cable Service Provider or through the phone line for BT. Then you can connect wired or wirelessly to internet through the router.

If you describe your set up in detail and tell me the Internet Service Provider I may be able to help more....

Check for the wireless encryption settings associated with this. If you're trying to join a network with "Open" settings to a encrypted network it won't work very well.

Can't connect to internet


I had a simlar problem. After spending 10 hours on the phone with the isp and the router company I gave up and called the geek squad at best buy. They came out to the house for $110.00 and it took him and hour. I went away for the weekend, had the same problme again. Called the Geek Squad again, he came out, spent another four hours fixing the problem, and it did not cost me any additional money:) I've been surfing smoothly ever since!!
