You must unplug your modem first then hit the reset for about 30 seconds then do it again while its plugged in. tell me if that solves it.

How to Configure your Linksys router with wireless security


Launch your Internet Explorer, Netscape or your Mozilla.

On the Address, Search or URL, type: http://192.168.1.1, then hit Enter/Return. A login screen will appear. Type admin for the password and leave the username blank or empty then hit “OK”.

Note: If it doesn’t take admin as the password you might have changed it when you have ran the RUN ME FIRST CD that came with the router so try other passwords.

If you cannot remember the password, I regret to tell you but, you have to reset the router and, reconfigure it again. Next time, remember the password to avoid unnecessary reset and reconfiguration.

To reset the router to factory default
1] Press and hold the reset button for 30 sec., after that
2] Unplug the power keep holding down the reset button for another 30 sec.
3] Then, plug back the power keep holding down the reset button for 30sec., after that
4] Release the reset button.

Note: Configuring WEP in the router varies depending on the model number and firmware version of your Linksys Router.

Cisco Interface (If your Setup page has a Cisco Logo)

Go to Wireless Tab > Wireless Security > Click the drop down arrow then select WEP:

Regular Linksys Router Interface (If your Setup page has a no Cisco Logo)

Under Setup > Click WEP Key Settings or Edit WEP Key Settings

Using passphrase 64bit
Encryption LEVEL 64bit > type a passphrase > click Generate > copy key1 on a piece of paper (10hex character). Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

For manual key entry of 64bit encryption:
Encryption LEVEL: 64bit > Under Key 1 type a 10 digit character from A-F and 0-9.
(e.g.: A0B3F58C9E, 0123456789, ABCDEFABCD). Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

Using passphrase 128bit
Encryption LEVEL128bit > type a passphrase > click Generate > copy key1 on a piece of paper (26hex character). Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

For manual key entry of 128bit encryption:

Encryption LEVEL: 128bit > Under Key 1 type a 26 digit character from A-F and 0-9.
(e.g.:0123456789ABCDEF9874561230, 012345678901234567890123456, ABCDEFABCDABCDEFABCDABCDEF).

Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

If you want better security for Vista computers, you may want to select WPA personal (WPA-PSK) under security > set the Algorithm to TKIP and type your personal security code (any code you want, any characters)

Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

How to reset to factory defaults


If you've lost the address/password information for your WAP54g, or if you've bought a used one and need to reset the configuration, follow these steps:

Step 1: Connect the power to the WAP54G. The "Act" light on the front of the unit should be on.

Step 2: Connect a network cable (cat5, normal or crossover cable is fine) from the WAP54g to your computer.

Step 3: set your computer's network interface as follows:

  • Specify an IP address manually,
  • ip: 192.168.1.2
  • netmask: 192.168.1.255 (for Linux)
  • netmask: 255.255.255.0 (for Windows)
  • default gateway: 192.168.1.1

It doesn't matter what your DNS settings are for this exercise.
** BE SURE TO NOTE WHAT YOUR OLD SETTINGS WERE, so you can reset your computer when you're done!

Step 4: On the back of the WAP54g, locate the "reset" button. Use a paperclip or the tip of a pen to press and HOLD this button for 60 seconds. Yes, really, a full 60 seconds. If you release the button before that time, just hit the reset button again, and start the 60-second timer over again.

Step 5: After 60 seconds, release the "reset" button and unplug the power connection from the WAP54G, and wait 10 seconds, then plug the power back into the WAP54G. The "Act" light on the front should light up again.

Finally, on your computer -- point a web browser at http://192.168.1.245/
It should prompt for a username and password.
  • For Internet Explorer, leave the username blank and put admin in the password
  • For Firefox and Safari, put admin in the username and admin in the password

And there you have it!

Want to change password for LinkSys Wireless Router. Also want to make outgoing information secure.


If you have forgotten the username/password for the router you can reset it by pushing and holding reset button for 15 seconds.

Then following the steps here:
http://www.lucidlink.com/media/docs_autogen/LinksysWRT54G.pdf

The later pages describe how to configure security and change your password.

If you are new to wireless I suggest selecting WEP or WPA-PSK.
