Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

My question is that I have everything reconnected on my old laptop after getting it cleaned from a virus but I need to get a security key for it. I got this equiptment from a friend who does not have any disks. I installed the E1000 router on it and I can not find the information and I can not locate the disk from when I purchased it. How do I solve this problem?

Hi,

Welcome to FixYa! I believe you are referring to the network key or the passphrase when you try to connect wirelessly. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a security algorithm for IEEE 802.11 wireless networks. Please follow these steps for you to be able to configure the wireless key.

1. Open up a browser and type 192.168.1.1

2. You will have this window, if it asked for a username and password, type " admin " as the username and leave the password blank.

3. Click Wireless.

4. Click Wireless Security.

5. Click on the dropped down menu and choose WEP.


6. On the space provided beside key 1, type your desired security key which consist of ten characters. It should be only A-F and 0-9 only.

7. Click Save SettiMy question is that I - matrix12_20.jpg

On another computer download ccleaner portable edition and advanced system care portable edition and put them on a usb stick or sd card.

Hi,

If you want to clean up your pc of viruses, Trend Micro's free online virus scanner 'Housecall' is a good way to do it.

If you want to find the serial number of your Windows installation so you can reinstall, download the 'Magic Jellybean Keyfinder' - it works well.

Laptop keys sticking


Try the following:
1. You need to clean up your laptop keys by a soft paintbrush or vacuum cleaner. Try removing the keys by gently pulling it sidewards.
2. Run virus update and scanning. Probably there is a VIRUS on your system

Thanks. Cheers!

He is learning the hard way!!

Install "malwarebytes" free from the internet (Best free anti-spyware on the net) / install / update / full scan / remove everything that shows.

My strong advice is to PAY for an anti-virus program as they are far superior to free ones.

I have a samsung notepad laptop.it has no disk drive and has a trojan virus on it which wont even allow me to get onto the internet.i was given norton security with it but with no disk drive how do they...


norton should be able to scan 'flash memory', and remove mal-ware. click on my computer, choose your flash drive- right click and choose 'scan'. since norton came with your 'netbook', it should be able to clean your 'flashdrive'- do you have any usb peripheral drives connected? norton should detect, and clean them, as well! make sure you 'update' your norton definitions first- if you can! try un-plugging any peripherals, before you run it. if it cleans up- then upgrade your norton definitions, and reconnect any peripherals, and run norton on them!! norton should allow you to chose which device to check!
good luck!

Virus


Yep Formatting certainly will get rid of virus ! But if you do not want to lose your contacts or personals datas you can try free antivirus softwares for symbian phones
also tips to format :
Here’s how you can remove, clear and clean the virus from your Nokia cell phone :
1> Remove the memory card from your cell phone and keep it in a clean and safe place. 2> Turn on your cell phone and key in #7370# 3> Security code prompt comes up, if you have set a security key, then key it in, else key in the default security key which is 12345.

This step is actually hard resetting your mobile phone. Which means that you might lose all data if you have not backed it up and moved it on to the memory card. Hence it is very important that you remove the memory card before performing this process.
Chances are that your memory card may also be infected by the virus. To remove the virus from memory card, put it on a card reader, connect it to your PC, either run one of the latest anti-virus software on it or format it if the anti-virus fails to remove the virus (You’ll end up losing the data here), which should clean it up.
Put the memory card back in your cell phone, restart the cell phone, which is now clean of the virus.
