Question about Linksys WRT54G3G Wireless Router (WRT54G3G-ST)

1 Answer

WRT54G3G router (Mobile)

I cannot seem to get the WEP working with the new WRT54G3G mobile router.

I can get other computers connected and browsing if Security is disabled. Once WEP is enabled wireless clients cannot connect. They can see the router and enter the correct key but do not connect...

Any ideas??

Tks

    Thanks all;



    Sorry for taking so long to answer...just got the account back up and running.



    I have tried generating a passphrase and defining one myself... neither work. The problem does not lie with the computer as I have tested with many computers and devices. None will connect wirelessly to the router once the wep is enabled (but will connect with other linksys routers using WEP).



    Is there another model from linksys which will use this aircard with verizon?



    Thanks, Mike

    When you enable wep on the router, are you entering a passphrase and let the router generate a key for you, or you are manually entering a wep key on the router?

Try this steps.

Go to Network Connections
Properties of Wireless Network Connection
Click Wireless Network Tab on the top
At the bottom, clear the Preferred Network box. Make sure delete all names that are listed.
Click OK all the way out

Enable the WEP on the router.
Now try to connect to the wireless network again with WEP enabled.
Make sure you enter the 10-digit code and not the Passphrase.

If it doesn't connect, try to power cycle the router. Just unplug the power for 30 seconds then reconnect to the wireless network.
That should do it.

Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable.
Then you can access it with following defaults link.
http://192.168.1.1
or
http://192.168.0.1
type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password".
Then you can see configuration of router.
Click on wireless and then wep security there is wep code it is your password to connect wifi.If it in * or # format then you need to set new add new WEP code then save settings it is your new password for connect internet.
Let me know if you need further assistance.Thanks for uisng FixYa.

I have a Wireless-G Router (Model WRT54G3G-ST). It works with a Sprint mobile broadband card and services. The card works, which is how I am sending this message to you now. When the router is...


The card works fine. For my house I am attempting to use the vcard with the Linsys wireless router so that more than one person can access the net at the same time. The route is specifically designed to work with this card and service, however i can't seem to get the two to talk to each other. i am looking for some technical group that can make the magic happen.
