1. Press the reset button for 30 seconds.
(The reset button is a small rounded button right next to Internet jack on the back of the router) After reset, the router settings will now return to the factory default settings. Any changes you had made would be deleted.
2. Open up your Web browser and enter "192.168.1.1′ in the address bar.
3. For the login, leave a blank ID and enter "admin" as the password.
4. You now can start reconfiguring your router.

Are you using WPA-Personal as mode? If not use this. Set the algorithm to TKIP. Pass phrase needs be at least 8 characters and set and set renewal key to 3600. If this does not work. Check compatibility of network card with linksys.

Try double checking it with this method (which you can also use if you forget it later on!):
1 Open your internet browser, you don't need internet.
2. type in exactly: http://192.168.1.1. and hit Enter to proceed to the page
3. Once this page loads, click the "Security" section/tab
4. Here you should be able to view the password for your network (WEP)
Hope this helps!

How can i find out my encription code for my asus eeepc


The encryption code is in your router's wireless setup.
To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is configured in the Wireless settings in the Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I got a new laptop and am trying to connect to the internet, but it is asking me for the Network Security Key. I don't know where to find it. Can you help??


Network security key is a encryption key.

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. 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.

1. Log into your Wireless Router or Access Point.
Open your web browser and type in the IP address of the Wireless
Router or Access Point. (The Router’s default is 192.168.2.1, the
Access Point’s default is 192.168.2.254.) Log into your Router by
clicking on the “Login” button in the top, right-hand corner of the
screen. You will be asked to enter your password. If you never set
a password, leave the password field blank and click “Submit”.
Click the “Wireless” tab on the left of your screen. Select
the “Encryption” or “Security” tab to get to the security
settings page.
2. Select “128-bit WEP” from the drop-down menu.
3. After selecting your WEP encryption mode, you can type in
your hex WEP key manually, or you can type in a passphrase
in the “Passphrase” field and click “Generate” to create a WEP
key from the passphrase. Click “Apply Changes” to finish. You
must now set all of your clients to match these settings. A hex
(hexadecimal) key is a combination of numbers and letters from
A—F and 0—9. For 128-bit WEP, you need to enter 26 hex keys.
For example:
C3 03 0F AF 4B B2 C3 D4 4B C3 D4 E7 E4 = 128-bit key
4. Click “Apply Changes” to finish. Encryption in the Wireless
Router is now set. Each of your computers on your wireless
network will now need to be configured with the same
security settings.

After installing the router it was working fine. I went in to set up wireless security and now the internet light stays red.


Probably means that the security is turned on, if the wireless doesn't work even after you have entered the right password then press and hold the reset button on the back of the router to restore it to defaults - factory defaults just like it was first powered on.
