Physically connecting the wireless router is the easy part, configuring it can be difficult unless you know what you're looking for.

The physical part:
Depending on the type of internet connection you've purchased from your ISP, you will have a coaxial cable or a telephone cord going into a modem provided by your ISP. That modem should have an ethernet or network port on it. You need to plug an ethernet cable into that port and plug the other end into the WAN or Internet port on you wireless router. You should now have internet connection from the wireless router. Try scanning for available networks on your wireless device and see what comes up. If you see one that says Linksys then this may be yours(could be your neighbors depending on how close they are to you). You could also plug a network cable into the router then plug the other end into your computer. If you can get to Google.com or Fixya.com then your internet connection is working.

The default IP address of the wireless router should be 192.168.1.1. This address is used to configure the router. The default password to configure the router is probably "admin" (without the quotes).

Here is a link to a web page that has some pretty good directions on securing your wireless signal.

II gave my router to my mother it has already been set up for an encryption I gave them the passkey and it is not working could this be due to the fact she has dsl internet and I had cable


>No, it really doesn't matter what type of service you have.
>To get it fixed just make sure that if your mom uses a modem and you hooked the router to it, modem must be in BRIDGED mode before you can make the router work.
>To set the modem to bridged mode you need to contact your mom's DSL provider so they can walk through it

In the diagram below, if this is your setup, modem has to be on Bridged Mode:

My friend gave me a linksys wireless -g 2.4 ghz speed booster router but need a password and he cant figure it out?? what do i do ?


Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then click on wireless then wireless security then WEP note down that password it is your password to connect wifi. . Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

My mom gve me a Wireless-G access point Linksys


I suggest resetting the router to the factory defaults by holding in the reset button located on the back of the router for 30 seconds.

The router will reset to the ip address of 192.168.1.1 and you can log into it using either a blank username and the password admin or using the username admin and the password admin.

Please let us know if the above was helpful and if there is anything more we can do to resolve your issue. Thank you.

I need help i forgot my wireless security key. i now have two laptops i need to hook up


Do you know how to access your linksys router? Do you know the password on the linksys router?

If not you will need to reset the linksys to restore the password to it's default and then reconfigure the router from scratch.

If you need help with that please reply with details about your router model information.

Password


Since you forgto the password the best way to make this router work fine is to reset it and reconfigure it back, To reset it just press and hold the reset button for 15 seconds while the power is ON, then if you still have the setup CD just run and that should take care of everyting, but if you don't have the setup CD you can manually configure it by accessing the router setup page if you're not familiar on how to do that better call LInksys tech support and let one of their tech walk you through with that process they are open 24/7 this is the number 800-3267114..........

Hope that helps............
