I am trying to use my laptop via wireless with this Linksys wireless router. I can't figure out how to go about it. When I try to use the disc that came with it, it asks me for a password. Thank you for your help!

Should not be any password in a new router but if there is a password your can simply bypass it by locating the reset button on the back on the router it should be a small red button that says reset. push it in for about 20 seconds and release that should give you access to the router. also you do not need the cd it is just a wizard that makes it somewhat easier, I suggest logging into your router and setting things up for yourself. just open a iE page and type the following ip in the url bar 192.168.1.1 that is the most common linksys ip. a small box will appear asking for a user name or password the default for most linksys are to leave username blank and admin for the password. this will take you into your basic settings in the wireless section give your network a name instead of leaving it as default linksys. after you have done that go to the security section and set up your security I suggest using a wpa or wpa2 encryption. after you choose your settings it will ask you to give the network a security key. put in a good long password that you can either write down or remember. check the box that says dhcp, hit save and thats it you now have a secure network set up. Hope this helps please reply if you have any other questions during the set up process

To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Connect HP 1102w to Linksys wrt54g


Hi! I was able to see that you've got a wireless printer. If you need to connect this to your router, this works like connecting a laptop wirelessly. First, you need to know your wireless name (SSID) and your password (WEP/WPA key). In case that you did not configure your SSID and password, it could be found on your router's sticker. If you were able to configure the two, then you just need to enter it when your wireless printer would ask for these info. If you needed help in configuring your router, I have here a page that you can follow just in case. Please visit http://www.columbia.edu/acis/networks/aptnet/linksys/index.html. This would help you on how you can set-up your router. In case this won't work, you may need to remove the printer's driver from your computer and reinstall it.Try to print a document via USB, just to make sure that it's working, then you may proceed in reconnecting it wirelessly.

The Linksys Wireless router is fine, but your latop is not configured for DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). The computer is connected to the router at layer 2, whereas HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), sits
atop the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) layer, and seems to be trying to
query the ISP's (Internet Service Provider) network for a nameserver (via DNS (Dynamic Name Service) protocol) that doesn't exist on the ISP's network. Configuring the laptop for DHCP and specifying no nameserver will fix this (the ISP's network will dynamically assign a DNS).

Its also possible (though a remote possibility) that your Linksys wifi router may be configured to disallow TCP/IP virtual circuits to/from your computer's IP address - but this is a really advanced
capability of your Linksys wifi router - few know this capability even exists.

Connecting multiple wifi devices to the Linksys router should be no problem, just configure them all to interact with the router using DHCP.

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.
