Go into the admin of your router. By default it should be http://192.168.0.1

user id: admin
password: linksys

select wireless.

I use 64 bit wep encryption because I have cell phones and pdas that can use basic wep encryption. If you have other appliances in your house running wireless 128 bit encryption may not work on those devices.

You can create a phrase. It will generate a 4 keys for you based on the passphase given. It defaults to the first one. You might want to print the screen out. Save it to your router.

Rescan the network on your routers. You will be prompted to insert the key. Use the key 1 settings and save it.

I bought this US Robotics wireless (model 5461 (Maxg)) maybe 3 years ago. I haven't used it in maybe 2 years and now it wouldn't work anymore. I recently switched apartments and computer, it used to work...


1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

I could see my SSID, full signal but could not connect


I think the best thing to do is to get in touch with your VOIP provider, as they will likely provide you with free customer service on this issue, AND they are able to remote into the product, and show you the correct configuration and method for setting it.

Hope this helps!!

Lenovo laptop cannot seem to find the linksys wireless g. we have two WIFI at the office one is linksys VOIP (secure) and linksys wireless G (unsecure). why is it that lenovo laptop only sees the secure...


make sure that the linksys VOIP(secure) router is broadcasting it's SSID or signal, otherwise it will not reflect even if you refresh the wireless network. If the router is broadcasting SSID but the lenovo laptop is not detecting it, try to re-install the wireless software for the laptop using the software from lenovo.com, just click Support then Downloads and drivers.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Losing internet connection when enabling ICS on the wireless network connection


Do not enable ICS on any of the computers that are connected to a router regardless if it's wired or wireless, you only need to enable ICS is if you don't have a router/server on your network(the purpose of a router is to share a single internet connection from your ISP). To connect your computer wirelessly to the router(on a Windows XP computer given that you do not have a 3rd party Wi-fi application installed) is to right click on wireless network connection on the System Tray(lower right hand side of the computer's Desktop near where the clock is) or you can do it the hard way by going to Control Panel then Network Connections and choose view available wireless network and under the list of available network that your computer can detect, select the network name(also called SSID) of your wireless router and try to connect(of course if you enabled Wi-fi security you also need to key-in the security key(WEP/WPA) you configured on your router and that's it both wired and wireless computer/devices connected to the router should work at the same time.

No internet connection with laptop computers in home


Good day!

If your Desktop computer is hardwired to the router and your laptop computers can't connect wirelessly, it could be your wireless computers are not synchronized with your router by not having the same settings as the router.

You can use the desktop machine to access your router web interface (setup page) to check the wireless settings such as SSID (Network Name-> Name of your wireless signal shown on your laptop computers), channel and security (wether it is WEP or WPA encryption)

The channel and network name will be automatically detected by the wireless computers. If you have an encryption/security on the router, you need to type the password on the wireless computers for them to authenticate.

Try these and post back if there's any progress

Please help...internet won't connect


You may be running into a problem of your ISP only allowing one computer on the internet. while the internet is on can you access the internet from the desktop comcast originally setup?  If so that is more then likely your problem.

I have comcast myself and they told me they do not allow home networks. I fixed that problem by using the mac address cloning feature in my router.

The setup cd is also junk, all you should really need to do is:
1. unplug modem, router, and turn off computers
2. Plug modem into router
3. Plug computers into router (don't worry about wireless right now)
4. Turn on modem, wait 20 seconds or so for lights to set,
5. Turn on router. again wait for lights to set
6. Turn on ONE computer that is hard wired into the router
7 Try to surf the net.
8. If successfull try to connect wireless computers (Without using cd) and see if they surf.

If not call comcast and see if your computers are trying to obtain real-world ip's instead of LAN ip's like they should.
If so, you'll need to enable DHCP on the router.
