Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

I have a Linksys Wireless Router Model WRT54G Ver. 6. 2.4 GHZ. I have had this working in an unsecurred mode for sometime and want to secure my wireless router. I have typed in 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.0.1 and I do not get any place to login with pass word Admin. I just get more websites. So thought I would give yours a shout to see if there was anything that could provide me the information to once and for all fix this. I do not have the installation disk anymore, where it went I have not idea, so was also having limited success in trying to download intall software to see if I can get intot he on-line router setup on this wireless router login with Admin and set a password so I then would have a secure network. Why must these things be so vague for new be's on wireless interent? Any ideas?

Welcome to Fixya. If you need the WEP key or Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Wep Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.
You can also reset the router by pressing the Reset button at the back of it for 15-30 seconds using a Pen and a Paper Clip.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

    Try to reset the router make sure it is on. Provided the steps above on how to make the connection secure. Mkae sure that you use an ethernet cable when you're resetting the router so that you will still be connected to it.

Need a driver for my linksys wireless gG broadband router WRT54G ver. 6


According to cisco:
By default, the router broadcasts an unsecured network named linksys. To change your wireless settings, open your browser and go to "192.168.1.1", no username, password is admin, assuming everything is on default that is. Once you're in, click on the Wireless tab and you can change the wireless settings from there.

this is usually caused by your router and your wireless network card are not compatible... you need to purchase as well cisco wireless network card adn tehn when you press your wireless security on the router, it will automatically apply all security protocol to the connection.

if you do not want to purchase new card, you always can setup these devices manually,

connect to the router via rj45 cable, establish what protocol, security and transmission method/frequency you will be using, write that down, disconnect the cable, enter your wireless network card settings and apply same settings to your network card, this should solve the problem.

as you did not stated what operating system you are using and what card is in your computer, this is unfortunately best advice which can be given.

how to set up your router, you have downloadable pdf file on linksys site.

Secure network becomes unsecure all of a sudden


Sounds like the battery that backs up this router's "firmware" and "programmable" memory settings may be going bad. Then again, it may not have a battery that does this. Perhaps the little reset button on the back is jammed in?

Hi, May be your router is now running a more secure algorith and needs password etc which the old one can't handle. You may have to downgrade your router to the older system..not a good idea.
