Hello and welcome to just answer
security key acts like a password XXXXX allows only those users to use the wireless network who hold this key
this blocks unauthorized use of your internet
to secure your router, connect it with computer through a wire
open your browser( internet explorer) and type 192.168.1.1 and press enter key
tell me when done
done, requests utilizer name and password, which iI do not have
admin for both please
username and password = admin
does not work , when do enter admin in password XXXXX
do you have its reference guide?
you have to enter utilizer name = admin and password = admin
I did enter admin both places , The router was bought a few years back and was secured , but since
I mved 8 months ago , I just plugged it in , is functionnal but not securized , I cannot find reference guide
I will try again to enter admin twice
please leave the utilizer name blank and enter admin as password
see if it works
hello Aitizaz, I am back, lost internet connexion .
utilizer name , on right is an arrow I pressed on it and indicates 02MFQPKENJDV , +admin for password XXXXX does not work , blank and password XXXXX not work , i will try that utilizer name with the most used passwords in the past and get back to you
still cannot get in ??????
from where did you buy this router?
do you know the vendor?
do you know the settings of the router so that if we reset it you can enter them again>
yes I do no the vendor, what do you mean by the setttings ?, Do I need a CD
actually your router connects with the internet service provider when you provide it few parameters like IP address
do you know these settings?
I don't know my IP address but I remember seeing it . Can you tell me how to access it in the computer ?
you IP address is not enough
that is assigned to you by the router
infact it is the IP address of the server to which your router connects to get the internet
who installed the router and configured it for you?
a freind , but I said it goes back a few years ,
I will look into my ''box '' that contains all installation CD's and info books related to the computer .
which internet service provider do you have?
do you have internet modem as well which is connected to this linksys router?
then let us reset the router and make changes
hold down the RESET button of your router for 30 seconds
as you asked I reseted the router , and lost the connection , after connecting and disconnecting wires several times + reseting again the router, I am finally back , they said computers are supposed to save us time ????
i just forgot to tell you that this is going to happen
please connect the router with your computer, enter 192.168.1.1
and now check if you can get in with admin as username and password
we are in , thanks, :) :) :)
do you see any menu item with SECURITY text>
SES is inactive , there is a reset security button
in wireless menu I have reset security button , and changed password XXXXX administration menu . I will try to access with my IPhone
router is securized , but can't get in with Iphone , I will check all boxes to make sure what is checked off
Are you back ?
yes i am back
sorry there was some problem with my internet
no problem, please guide me , I see the WIFI on my I phone but if I enter Password XXXXX I entered in Administration menu of Linksys page I cannot access
are you able to access the internet on any other wireless device like your computer after you changed the security key?
did not try , but probably not , I will try now with lap top
i think this will not work
you have not set up the right password
should i guide you on it
please , when I tried to connect with lap top , I used "WPA Shared Key " number . On my computer got message saying "system has detected IP address conflict with other system on WIFI" ( this is my translation from original Frech message )
please get to the linksys main page by typing 192.168.1.1 in the browser
i am already logged to Linksys page
click the WIRELESS menu
now click WIRELESS SECURITY
in the first drop down, select WEP
now in the KEY 1 text box, give the key you want
done , after I suppose I save settings?
now you should use this key on all the wireless devices
when I save settings I get message saying invalid length of key , i will try again
enter a 10 digit password
if I enter 6 letters + 4 digits = " have illegal hexadecimal digits " message
try just digits and tell me the result
ok with digits , i will try iphone now.
works with i phone , will try Lap Top
lap top still in process of opening , Will I have to do Key number each time or will router recognize my Iphone , Lap top and Ipad automatically?
once you give in the password, they will connect automatically
thank you , still waiting for lap top, should be soon .....
if it does not connect, then you should change the security password XXXXX from within the laptop network settings
it tries to connect but does not ask for key code
turn off wifi and then turn on
view the list of available wireless connection by clicking the wireless icon in the system tray ( with the clock in the right bottom)
and connect the wireless network of your own
it should ask for password
