It sound to me that you have a wireless card in your laptop and you are picking up your neighbors wireless router!!!! which has no SSID set, thus "default" and has no encryption set, thus "unsecured network". Turn off your wireless adapter The only security on a Non-Wireless router is turning on the firewall. It should be enabled by default. The other thing would be to change the password on your router, but since you do not have a wireless router, then it is pointless, unless you do not want someone in your house to access the router settings and make changes. Ever then, if someone in your house that is physically connected to the router with a "cable" could alway walk to the router and stick a pin in the the "reset" hole in the back of the router to reset wipe any changes that was made, so a password is pointless as far as I am concerned for non-wirelss routers. open your browser and type http://192.168.1.1 Admin User name: Leave it blank Password: admin Once you login you can change your password if you like.

You have to upgrade the firmware of your router. To do this please follow the steps

1. Open the website www.linksys.com/download
2. Enter the model number of your router and hit enter
3. Now click on Get downloads and drivers
4. Select the version number of your router and scroll down a little.
5. To your left you will see Downloads and under that you will see Firmware
6.Click firmware and save it to your desktop
7. Now again open internet explorer and in the address bar 192.168.1.1 and hit enter
8. If you have not changed the default password of the router then leave the user name blank and in password type admin and hit enter.
9.Now click Administration and under that click Upgrade firmware.
10. Select the file and that you have saved on your desktop and click upgrade.
11.After upgrade turn off the router for 30 seconds.

How do I setup the Linksys BEFSX41 Router as a Hub only


Access your router's interface by visiting the URL http://192.168.1.1 and when prompted for login credentials, use these defaults:

user name = admin
password = <leave blank>

unless otherwise you have changed it.

While at the router's page, click the OPTION to DISABLE DHCP.

When DHCP is disabled, you should manually assign IP addresses to connecting PCs to connect to your hub.

I have a LINKSYS Broadband Firewall router and only the Power and the DMZ will light up. I plugged everything exactly like the instructions said on the internet but nothing works. I have no installation...


Reset the router to default settings:

This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password “admin”, in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to “admin” on some of the newer Linksys router models).

Forgotten Router Password


Hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds or more and the router will be restored to factory defaults. This also means that your configuration will be set to factory defaults also, so if your router is configured for your ISP you may loose your connection until you set the unit up again. The default password for the router is admin in lower case letters.
