Question about Linksys WRT110 Wireless Router

Open Question

I have a linksys wrt110. When I try to put a passphrase on the wireless (using WPA-2 Personal), I can't reconnect afterward. I can reset it, connect again, put a new router name, save it, and try a new password. However, it still doesn't work. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

SOURCE: Linksys WRT54GX2 constantly disconnects

I just upgraded from firmware version 1.01.14 to 1.01.22 and I have the same problem, the router just keeps resetting itself. I think the solution is to go back to the old firmware, but I haven't been able to find a copy yet, Once I find firmware version 1.01.14 for the WRT54GX2 router. I will let you know if this is the solution... :)

SOURCE: Cannot find wireless tab on Linksys router setup page

Hi...this is an unusual problem.

Is your model the BEFSR41W? Linksys describe this as a 'wireless ready router', and it seems to require a PCMCIA card to be inserted in the back of the router, to enable wireless connectivity.

I'm just wondering if the router lost communication with the card, causing your wireless options to disappear?

However, first things first. As you have (correctly) reset the router, all your settings have been cleared, including ISP information (hence the internet connection is lost). Your first priority is to set up your router again, and the Linksys website has a downloadable manual, quick install guide and tips which will help with this.

When you are up and running - and assuming I have the right model - try removing and re-inserting the PCMCIA card at the back of the router, and see if the router re-detects it. If successful, this should bring back your wireless options.

I hope this helps, but please post again on Fixya if not. It does seem odd to have lost the wired connection before the reset.
Good luck. :)

SOURCE: WRT300N Router Issue

What I would recommend, would be to give the router a factory reset. To do so, you'll need a paper clip first. On the back of the router, you should see a pinhole-sized rubber nub of a button labeled reset. To reset, unplug the router from power, then press and hold that little reset button in, and plug the router back into power (you might have to do some nifty acrobatics for this one, or get a friend to give you a hand). Keep holding the reset button in for about 20 seconds, and let go. If I recall, you probably won't see any real indication on the router itself that it worked, however, you should be able to log back into the router manually, and set your connections back up again, in the event that the settings may have become corrupted somehow. If this doesn't work though, then there may be further problems, in which case, you may need to get onto Linksys' website, and download the most recent firmware for your model of router, and then try setting it up again. If that doesn't work, then the router may be experiencing some kind of hardware failure, in which case, if you are within the manufacturer's warranty, contact Linksys for repair or replacement (or through your place of purchase). If you are not within warranty, then buying a new replacement router may be your only other option. Hope this helps!!

kb19073-001_en.png NOTE: Image may vary depending on the type of router and computer you are using.
To setup your router's wireless security settings:
i. Accessing the web-based setup page
ii. Setting-Up the Wireless Security
Accessing the web-based setup page

Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page by opening a web browser. On the Address bar, enter your router's local IP address then press [Enter].

NOTE: The default IP Address of Linksys routers is "192.168.1.1". For instructions on accessing the web-based setup page using a Mac computer, click here.

Step 2:
When the login prompt appears, enter your router's Username and Password.

NOTE: The default password is "admin" and the Username field is left blank. If you have set a password before but forgot it, you need to reset the device. For instructions on how to reset a Linksys router, click here.

Step 3:
On the Setup page, click the Wireless > Wireless Security.

NOTE: If some of the tabs are missing in the web-based setup page, upgrade the firmware of your router. For instructions, click here. You can also set the wireless security of your Linksys E-Series routers with Cisco Connect. To learn how, click here.

kb19073-002_en.png

On the Wireless Security sub-tab, there are various wireless security options that you can choose from.

kb19073-003_en.png

However, as mentioned earlier, the three most commonly used security modes are WEP, WPA Personal (or WPA Pre-Shared Key), and WPA2 Personal. The instructions below will show you how to set up the following security modes. On the other hand, the WPA2/WPA Enterprise Mixed Mode, WPA Enterprise, WPA2 Enterprise, and RADIUS security modes will only work if the router is connected to a RADIUS server.
Setting-Up the Wireless Security



Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)

WEP can be a 64-bit key with 10 hexadecimal digits or a 128-bit key with 26 hexadecimal digits. This encryption will prevent other users from connecting to your wireless network. It will also protect your wireless transmissions from being accessed by other users.

NOTE: In case the screen on your router's web-based setup page looks different, click here.

Step 1:
On Security Mode, select WEP.

kb19073-004_en.png

Step 2:
Under WEP Encryption, select 40 / 64-bit (10 hex digits) and enter a unique word in the Passphrase field.



NOTE: The 128-bit key uses a higher level of encryption compared to the 64 bit WEP. It uses a 104 bit (26 Hex Character).

Step 3:
Click the Generate button and copy the string of letters and numbers displayed in the space provided for Key 1. The Key 1 contains the wireless password.

NOTE: You can also create your own Wireless Password (Key 1) given that it is in hexadecimal format. The hexadecimal system consists of the characters 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E, and F. You can only choose 10 characters (in any given order) from that set.

kb19073-006_en.png

Step 4:
Click kb19073-007_en.png.

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a Wi-Fi standard designed to improve the security features of WEP. WPA is stronger than WEP encryption. PSK and PSK2, the two types of WPA, give you a choice between two encryption methods: the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP), which incorporates Message Integrity Code (MIC) to provide protection against hackers, and Advanced Encryption System (AES), which utilizes a symmetric 128-Bit block data encryption.

NOTE: For older versions of Linksys routers, WPA Personal is also referred to as WPA Pre-Shared Key. Refer to the image below for an example.

kb19073-008_en.png


To set up WPA Personal on a Linksys router, follow the steps below:

Step 1:
On Security Mode, select WPA Personal.

kb19073-009_en.png

NOTE: If you are unable to find the WPA Personal or WPA2 Personal in the list of choices for the Security Mode then you might need to upgrade the firmware of your router to its latest version. Upgrading the firmware can fix the bugs of the previous version and update its other features.

Step 2:
Enter your Passphrase.

NOTE: The Passphrase must consist of at least eight characters and is case-sensitive.

I do not remember the passkey code?


You can reset the Linksys back to the factory defaults and the login to the wireless settings and create a new passphrase key.
Power up the router and press the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router for 30 secs.
Open a browser and enter the configuration URL enter the default login and password, you should change the password then go to the wireless settings to change the encryption passphrase and SSID etc.

I bought Linksys El000 How do I connect to X Box?


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router. You will needthe name of your wireless network ( SSID) and the wireless network key or passphrase.
You are using E1000 router. This is new series of routers from Linksys.
If you are using the security type WPA/WPA2 mixed then use only the WPA personal and TKIP.
now go to X-box and try to connect to the wireless.

Security Keys or Passphrase


  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.
