Go to "Start" then "Run" and type in http://192.168.1.1
and then hit "enter"
this will bring up a box asking for a user name and password the default for Linksys is
user name is "Admin" and Password is "Admin" if this doesn't work, you may have an older version then:
Leave the user blank and put in the password "Admin".
Once your Linksys setup comes up, you should see a Wireless tab at the top, select it.
(Some models have a different setup so if yours looks different I will need your model #.)
Under Basic wireless settings you should use
Wireless Network Mode: Mixed (unless you know if all hardware will be "G")
Wireless Network Name (SSID): Linksys
you can change the SSID to something you can recognize, all Linksys routers use the default
"Linksys", this will show up when your laptop is searching for a router.
Then hit "SAVE SETTINGS", continue
then under that tab you will see faint settings look for "Wireless Securtiy" select the arrow by the
Security Mode and select "WEP" more options will open.
You should see "64 bits 10 hex digits" by encryption, leave that
Where it says "Passphrase", type in a word or name you will remember and select "Generate", this will put a code in KEY 1
record that Key in a safe place, this will secure your wireless. Hit "SAVE SETTINGS"
Then you can just close the page by the X
Disconnect your laptop from the router and search for wireless connections when you recognize yours and tell it to connect a box will come up asking for the KEY code you generated, you will have to put it in 2 times usually, then hit connect and it should connect.
If anything is unclear let me know.
