HOW DO I FIND MY LINKSYS G2.4 ENCRIPTION KEY?


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on thislink and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I have bought this equipment, and i wish to make a secure connection and add other laptops and computers. but everytime i do so, i loose the connection, i wish to use the wi-fi protected set up


If you want to use secure wireless connection just use WEP or WPA security encription for wireless. Protected set up does not do this. This is for in house laptop connections. In the wireless tap of your netgear choose manual set up or wireless security option and then choose WEP or WPA option. You will have to make a key and put this key in to every wireless device in house. Hope this helps.

This is a link to manual for your router.

The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to connect to the Belkin Router Wirelessly and it is asking you for a Security Key, all you need to do is to access the router settings page and look for the Network Key or Passphrase.

To 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 192.168.2.1, the Default password is blank

Click on Security under Wireless and look for the Security Key or Network Key (Passphrase)

Thanks for using Fixya.

Belkin router F5D8638-4 laptop connects but no internet access


Make sure you entered the same key exactly the same way in both the router and the computer. Also, make sure you have selected a Security protocol that is supported by the computer. Some versions of Windows do not support WPA. XP supports it but really doesn't like to auto detect it. If it's a HP laptop make sure you are using a communications channel other than 6. Some routers give you an option to select the channel HP computers don't like working with channel 6.

2> access the router setup from a web browser (may be using 192.168.1.1, the default address of your router, and admin as the password.). You can also go to kb.linksys.com if you need more help to access your router setup.
3> at the top click on wireless on the BLACK bar at the top.
4> under wireless click on wireless security on the blue bar.
5> select the security mode as WPA-PERSONAL (best encryption and supported by all devices).
6> select WPA ALGORITHUM as TKIP.
7> in WPA Shared Key type: "superman" or any thing else but it should be at least 8 characters long. and you should remember it as this will be your wireless password.
8> the Group Renewal key should be 3600.
9> Click on save settings at the bottom.

PERSONALIZING YOUR WIRELESS NETWORK NAME--------
1> Under Wireless, click on Basic wireless settings.
2> MODE: mixed

WPA encription disappeared, cannot access router


First get the DNS setting of your ISP. If you have activated the internet connection icon on system tray. View its status then i think it support menu. It will give you the details and the ISP DNS. Or ask your ISP provider.

Then connect your Computer LAN to LAN1port of the router thru LAN cable. Set your Computer LAN setting, input your LAN ipadress say 192.168.1.2 then subnet say 255.255.255.0 then default gateway ot the router say it is 192.168.1.1 then in DNS input your ISP DNS. Test it goto router's utility page, input user and pass. Or ping the router, on windows dos type ping 192.168.1.1 enter, you will got 4 lines for good connection.

Now connect the Internet cable to WAN port if it is LAN cable. browse the internet. This is the first step.

Hi, I am trying to connect another laptop to our wifi but when i enter the netgear pass code it does not regonise it. Any ideas?


Hi,
The router's passcode is a different thing to the WEP/WPA encryption code.
Type www.routerlogin.com into the internet browser of a computer that has access to the router and disable the WEP/WPA encryption, and press Apply or Submit.
Now Enable it again and it'll ask you to choose a password. Put something in and Submit that. That password is what you would put into the other laptop to connect.

Hope this helps
