You should be able to download the manual and other documentation from linksys website. Since the router was givin to you, the first thing I would recommend is to "reset" the router by using a pencil or pen to press the small button located by the power plug on the back of the router. This will remove any passwords or settings the previouse owner had set.

If this is a adsl router (as it looks like it may be) your isp should also be able to help set it up for you.

Try resetting the wireless router back to to factory defaults.
To reset the Linksys back to the default settings -
Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with 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 and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Adding Dell Dimension 4600 to existing wireless network?...


Go to Staples and purchase a Linksys USB wireless-G (only G needed - the new "N" protocol is overkill) adapter (~$60.00). Insert the Linksys CD and follow the instructions. When prompted, plug the USB adapter into the Dell (frt or back) doesn't matter. If his "roomies" have security enabled on their router, you'll need to know the level, password/passphrase, and the network name that they assigned.
Good luck.

Was given a linksys wireless-g router, model no; WAG54G ver1.2, have no software or installation instructions an wonder if you can help. thanx


If the router was previously used, you need to set it back to defaults. There is a red (recessed) button in the back. Hold the button down for at least 10 seconds with the tip of a ball point pen. This will reset your router back to factory defaults.

Defaults:
Username/password: admin/admin
IP address: 192.168.1.1

You can download the manual in PDF format here or directly from Linksys here

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

Installation of router


This is the linux version of the 54G router. It is assumed anyone using this router is loading their own custom firmware such as dd-wrt for which all the instructions are on the dd-wrt website.

Wireless internet connection


I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?

Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.
