- access the router's setup page using a hardwired computer.
- open a web browser and type http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar. by default the password is "admin", just leave the username blank
- go to the wireless tab next to the setup tab, look for the wireless security subtab
- you can now select your encryption. WPA is better than WEP but you need to make sure that all your wireless computers can support WPA (Note: if you're going to setup WEP (64bit), it'll ask you for a 10-digit hexadecimal password. you just need to use key 1. if you're going to setup WPA, the minimum character for the password is 8)

hope this'll help you

ciao!

How do i hook up my router?


There are several ways to do this, depending on how your network is configured.

Generally, if you have only one router - you connect the network jack of your cable modem or DSL modem to the WAN ("wide area network" or "internet") jack of the router with a CAT 5 network cable or jumper. Each computer's network jack would be connected to one of the router's (4) LAN ("local area network" or "home network") jacks labeled 1, 2, 3, & 4.

steve_con_12.jpg
In the picture above, the left most jack (WAN) of the router connects to the cable or DSL modem. The "LAN" jacks labeled "1, 2, 3 & 4" connect to each computer's network jack in your home.

The above would change if you are simply adding this router to extend an existing network. You'd likely be using this router as a switch, and leaving the routing duties to the main router. Over simplified, all the CAT 5 network cables would be connected to the 4 LAN jacks. There would be no connection to the router's WAN jack because the output of the first router provides only private IP addresses used in YOUR location. The internet IP address from your ISP is used only at the first router so that your entire home has the single IP address. The WAN jack is for internet addresses only - and the LAN jacks are for local / private addresses in your home only.

Have a look at the LinkSys web site for help configuring your particular model router, or reply with the model and version here.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

I have a Linksys wireless-G 2.4 GHz router directly connected to my PC. I've just bought a MacBook Pro and want to go online via this router. The Macbook finds the router but cannot connect to...


The reason you cannot connect, is you have to match the settings from your router to Airport- usually it requires you setting the security on your router to a specific WPA2, Wep, or no security- invariably I have had trouble getting clients to get online with the WPA2 set to the either or setting- but set it to either public or private- they're online. Anyhow, in order to do that- you will need to log into your router- if you have a pc/mac hard wired into the linksys via ethernet, open a web browser window and go to 192.168.1.1- it would be under wireless security. Match the settings on your Macbook, you should be able to go wireless at that point. Another solution, depending on your internet service provider... is that the provider could share your system remotely and assist with getting you online wirelessly (I know for a fact that Verizon DSL Business does do this. )

Linksys Wireless-G not connecting to internet


Make sure you are plugging the SMC into the WAN port on the Linksys router and not the LAN ports.  Your internet connection (which is your SMC) should always plug into your WAN port on the Linksys.  Any computers that you may need to plug in, like Desktops that are "wired" and not "wireless", should plug into the LAN ports on the Linksys.  If you are not using the WAN port on the Linksys for your SMC modem, then that would explain why you cannot get to the internet on wireless or wired computers.
Here's why you are getting the "low connectivity" message:

Computers don't understand why the Internet is connecting or not connecting...so the "low connectivity" message you keep receiving has nothing to do with your wireless signal strength.   To a computer NIC, "low connectivity" means your network adapter could not find a DHCP server and receive a valid IP address.  When this happens, your network adapter assigns an IP address to your computer in the following range...169.254.0.0, and will display the "low connectivity" message until it is able to receive a valid private IP address from the DHCP server.  You can verify this by going to START | RUN and typing "cmd" (without the quotes), then hit ENTER.  A black box will pop up....then type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER.  This will show you your IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address, and you can verify that your IP address is in the 169.254.0.0 range.  A valid private IP address is typically in the 192.168.0.0 range, but could also be in the 10.0.0.0 range, or the 172.16.31.0 range.    Also, make sure you have DHCP server enabled on the Linksys router for the LAN.  This will ensure your "wired" and "wireless" computers receive a valid IP address.  
The WAN port on your Linksys router should be configured to "Obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP".

Cheers!

Restrict the router to specific times


First off thanks for choosing fixya.com for help.

It does not look like this router offers parental control features. However, you can install a "Net Nanny" application that will allow you to restrict the time your kids are online.

The other option and much cheaper is to label which cable is your sons going into the router and unplug it at the given time.

If you have an older computer laying around that you can spare, you can also use IPCOP or SMOOTHWALL firewalls to limit time on the internet. These devices are free and offer a ton of features.
However they require a dedicated computer and will remove any data on the hard drive of that machine.

Your easiest bet would be "Net Nanny" software. Vista has parental control settings in it, but its for the whole computer (meaning it will turn off the computer) and not just the internet.

Hope this helps you in some way.

Linksys Routers and Microsoft PPTP


Microsoft uses IP Protocol 47 [GRE] for this secure tunnel. Provided that the PPTP Pass Through is set to Enable on the Router's Filters page and port 1723 is forwarded to the VPN Server, the Router will allow authentication and remote access into your network. The router will also allow you access remote PPtP networks from behind the router providing the PPtP Passthrough is enabled on the router.
