Hi-

Try to activate the wireless card from device manager on your laptop and You will need to enter the WEP key during the configuration of the wireless
client to successfully connect. If you do not have it written down or
recorded elsewhere, you can get it by connecting to the configuration page
for you wireless router (connect by inputing the IP address of your router
in the URL of your browser.) The easiest way to do this is by connecting
the laptop to be configured to the router via a cable, go to the wireless
admin page and then copy/paste the key during the wireless NIC
configuration.

You can find info on wireless configuration in this link,click HERE


hope this helps

Do you have a DSL or CABLE internet ?

If you have a DSL connection, your DSL username & password is needed when configuring the router (WRT54G).

Otherwise, just reset the router.

On older LinkSys routers, the default username is "admin and the default password is blank ." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."

If you changed the router password and you lost it you will need to reset the router to default settings.

If you wireless network is already configured, you do not need to access to router settings to connect a new laptop. In this case you will probably need wireless network encryption key. If your wireless network is protected (as it should be) you will be asked to input the key in new laptop, to connect to wi fi network.

If your wireless network is secured you need to have a wireless security key like WEP or WPA key sometimes its compose or numbers and letter, The password admin is use to access the router setup page when you type in http://192.168.1.1 and there it will ask you for username and password just leave the user blank and type admin for the password and you can also check the security that you need to your laptop , Just go to Wireless tab and look for a sub tab that say Wireless Secuity and ther you can find the needed security key for the laptop..

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

    Don't need to reset the router, if it has a wireless security on it follow the steps that I gave you and access the router setup http://192.168.1.1 on the working computer and use admin for the password and get the wireless security from that page..

    You only need to reset the router if you cannot access the router page because the password is not working...



    Good luck..........

I have router and got to laptops connected to it just trying to add nother laptop to it that has got a belkiin wireless usb adapter and it wil not let me also i cannot rember my pass word for router


Reset your router to manufacturer's settings by pressing with a small pin the hole found at the rear of the router. It is labeled "reset".

When the router is reset to default setting, connect the router to a computer and visit http://192.168.1.1 (linksys router) or http://192.168.0.1 (d-link router) to configure it. By default, username = admin and password = <blank> or no password. If no password don't work, try the password "admin". So username = admin and password = admin.

You you reach the configuration field, you need to enter the configuration settings provided by your ISP to connect to their internet services. Most likely, you will be using a dynamic IP address (DHCP Enabled) for home users or a static IP for business users. But these information you can get from your Internet Service Provider.

Once you can connect to the internet, configure your wireless network in the router's configuration page to broadcast with encryption. Use WPA or WPA2 or the like in your encryption protocol. Make sure that you configure your laptop for WPA or WPA2 also for them to communicate.

When all is set, try connecting to the internet and try if your wireless router is broadcasting wifi internet.

You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
For belkin router 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.
Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi,

If you are using windows xp :

Go to Start>control panel> Network and internet> network connections > right click on wireless network > select 'view available wireless networks' and select your home network and click connect. If it asks for a password i guess u have it or if u dont have then go to Internet Explorerand and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, it will ask for a username and a password, type admin as username and the same for password. it will take you to the lynksys page....then select wireless and click wireless security, it will show you the wireless password.......

If u have windows vista :

Click Start > go to 'connect to' > select the wireless network you want to connect to and the rest is the same as windows xp....


Hope this works out

I have a linksys WRT546 wireless G router someone gave me. I want to connect it to my laptop which is wireless ready and compatible. What type of software or other directions do I need to make it work...


You don't need any extra software.

Connect ethernet cable between PC and router
On back of router may be a IP number like 192.186.1.1
Open internet explorer and type in this number
It may ask you for a password - try no password or 'admin'
If you cannot guess the password becuase it has been set to an unknown word. reset the router using hidden button on back.
Once you have a menu, use the wizard to input your ISP login name and password.
To set up wireless, set an SSID (any name - e.g. fred).
Try to get wireless working between laptop and router.
Once it works, set a WEP key in the router and computer for better security.

Wireless linksys


on the back of the router there is a reset button, use a pen or something similar to hold the button down for 30 seconds, unplug router and plug back in. If its an older linksys model leave the user name blank and password will be admin, newer models user: admin password: admin.
