The Access Point determines encryption. This is because the access point provides the path into the network. In infrastructure mode (all computers communicate through the access point) the AP is configured for 64- or 128-bit encryption. In 64-bit, WEP key 1 through 4 must be selected. In 128-bit, there is only one WEP key. The client computers must now be configured to the same WEP settings in order to connect to the network. If the WEP settings on a client are not correct, the client will show that it is connected to an access point, but no data can be exchanged, i.e.. no Internet browsing is possible, etc. 802.11b Ad-hoc differs only in that each computer must use identical WEP settings. There is no AP in the system to drive the WEP.

Linksys e3000 router. I am able to connect to the router without typing in a password. Under encryption on the computer its states "none". How do I enable encryption on the e3000? Thanks.

Open the web browser on your computer and type ''http://192.168.1.1". This address will open the configuration page for the router. When you are prompted for a login name and password to begin configuration, just type 'admin' in both boxes to gain access.

Enable WPA2 Encryption
Under the wireless security tab, enable WPA2 encryption by ticking the appropriate check box. This will encrypt all data that is transmitted over the network. If the data is intercepted by anyone, they will find it to be garbled data. To enable this setting, check out the 'Wireless Security' tab. Choose a long passphrase to use and write it down exactly, because you will have to enter this passphrase on every wireless device you want to connect to to router. (laptop, Wii, BluRay, iTouch, etc)

Are trying to enter the WEP key and it is not allowing any more the 5 characters (please input 64 bit WEP encryption and Five ASCII Characters))

It is recommended to enable encryption on your wireless router before your wireless network adapters. Please establish wireless connectivity before enabling encryption.

Note: Your network will slow down and wireless signal may degrade when enabling encryption due to the added overhead.

Step 1 Log into the web configuration of the router by opening up a web browser and typing in the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1).

Click here if you cannot access the web-based configuration.

Step 2 Enter your username (admin) and your password (blank by default). Click OK . Click the Home tab and click the Wireless button on the left hand side of the screen.

Step 3 Select Enable next to the WEP radio buttons. For WEP encryption select 64, 128, or 256-bit encryption. For the Key type select HEX. If you have an option for Authentication type, select Shared Key.

Step 4 Select Key 1. Enter a Hex encryption key that you make up. The length of the encryption key will depend on what you selected under WEP Encryption.

  • 64-bit encryption 10 characters
  • 128-bit encryption 26 characters
  • 256-bit encryption 58 characters (available on DI-614+ only)

    The encryption key is HEX, meaning 0-9 and A-F are valid characters. For example, A4583DFF1A (64-bit HEX key).

    Step 5 Click on the Apply button then click on the Continue button to save your settings.

    How secure my network

    When you first setup your wireless router you should change the login password and then the wireless configuration, setup WAP or WAP2 encryption (WAP2 is the strongest encryption) and change the SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
    For further wireless protection enable MAC address filtering. The MAC address of the wireless card is entered in the router MAC address filter table, which allows only the wireless card with this MAC address to connect to the router.
    Also if your router has a firewall then you should enable this feature.
    The wireless card on the computer needs to be configured with the wireless router's settings. The LAN cable can be removed and the computer communicates wirelessly with the router.
    All the computers on your network should have anti-virus program installed and firewall enabled.

    2nd laptop will not connect to internet

    I'm assuming that your 2nd laptop is wireless? Does your router have encryption? If it has, then you need to get the encryption key from one of the working computers. Access the linksys interface from one of the working computers. Usually this is done by going to http://192.168.1.1 (leave username blank, password is "admin"). Go to Wireless> Wireless Security. Is encryption selected? If yes, get encryption key #1 and use it on the non-working laptop to connect to the router. If encryption is not enabled, go to the steps below.

    On the 2nd laptop, click on the wireless icon at the bottom right part of your screen. Look for the linksys router from one of the available wireless networks, click connect and enter in the encryption key when it asks for it (not case-sensitive. Usually it's 10 or 24 digits). If encryption is not enabled, it will not ask for the encryption keys when you hit connect. See what happens.
