Stop and start over with Router Setup by using a paper clip to press router reset button. Now, with router connected via CAT-5 cable to a computer's NIC. On this computer, using IE or other web access, go to http://192.168.1.1 to access router web setup. Set the Wireless properties, such as SSID (Network Name) and Security properties, like WEP/WPA passwords. This password will be needed by all computers accessing this router's signal. At this point, your router should be putting out a signal identified by the SSID name, all other settings for the router should be set already to the point where it will work, like the IP addresses declared in the router setup. Best left alone, at least till it is up and running. It gets the network address from your Internet Provider, and they are the only ones that can give you an IP address.
The passphrase can be found on the router setup page, where all the settings of the router can be found including the wireless security so just need to access the router setup page and get the passphrase from there...........
Step 1: Access the router’s web-based setup page. Open a browser and type in 192.168.1.1 ( on a Linksys router) and login (default password is admin) Step 2: When the router’s web-based, setup page appears, click Wireless and select Wireless Security.There you should see your encryption security key or paraphrase. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
To add wireless to your wired router, you need an Wireless Access point. And when you get it you have to set the MAC address of the router into the Wireless Access point, in order for them to talk to each other. An Access point will probably cost you more than it would if you purchased a new wireless router. I would buy a wireless router, and sell the wired router on Craig's list or something.

for one you could try and manually connect to the network by clicking site survey then choose your network on the list then connect. make sure to adjust the channel of your router to 11.
another option is to right click the green icon on the lower right corner of the screen down by the time/clock. the linksys icon green icon that has waves on it, right click then choose use windows wireless zero configuration. then confirm it by presing yes.
an icon that look like 2 small computers will apear at the system tray just right that then view available wireles network then connect to your network.
Before you can get online through the router all you need to do is change the Linksys router's IP address. Because the westell and the linksys has the same range of IP address that creates a conflict on your network that's why you can't get online.
First login to the setup page of your linksys router.
Under the Setup Tab (this is the first screen that you will see after typing in the linksys router's password.) make sure that the Internet connection type is set to Automatic Configuration- DHCP, Then on the same page look for router IP address or LAN IP address. By default its 192.168.1.1, you need to change it to 192.168.2.1. And hit save settings. You will get disconnected from the linksys page, that is normal. If you want to log back in to the router page you use the new address of your linksys (192.168.2.1).
Now you restart your computer to refresh the connection and that should get you online.
Just reply to my post to let me know if your done doing this. We will setup the wireless after we make sure that you can get online wired to the router.
