Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
You have to check if your router supports WPA first of all..
So if you are using xp, click on start, then run then type cmd
then when the black box comes up, just tpye ipconfig
copy the number for the default gateway down
Then open up a browser and type the gateway number there on the address bar..
You will probably get a login query if ur router has a password on it.. Otherwise, it will just display..anyway, enter the password and change the wireless settings section to WPA rather than WEP, set the keyphrase , and ur router is then set
Then comes the other part..Go to your computer (laptop) i presume, then change the setting to use WPA instead of WEP on internet connection settings. (usually your wireless connection setting).
I hope this helps.

All Belkin Router's ship without an admin password. If you require an admin password then follow the below instructions.
Click "Apply Changes". Your new password is now active.
Note: Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings. If you forget or lose your password, you'll need to "Perform a hardware reset on the router". This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed
