This guide is suitable for Linksys WAG54G routers.

What we'll cover:

  • logging into your router
  • turning your router's wireless settings on (or off)

Step 2

  • The Basic Wireless Settings page should be displayed. If not, select the Basic Wireless Settings tab from the submenu at the top of the page.
  • Enter the following information into their corresponding fields:
Wireless Network Mode: Mixed
Wireless Channel: 11 - 2.462GHz
Wireless SSID Broadcast: Enable

Step 3

  • Create a name for your wireless network and enter this into the field labelled Wireless Network Name (SSID). Do not leave "Linksys" as the Wireless Network Name.

Creating a network name (SSID)

Your network name is used to identify your wireless network. This is particularly useful if there are other wireless networks nearby.

Because your network name will be visible outside of your home or office, the name should be recognisable but should not use any personal or service details.

  • Bad Network Names: 
    BloggsFamily, JoeBloggs, 123JamesStreet, Internode, default, your Internode username, your router's name.
  • Good Network Names: 
    MyNetwork, HomeWireless, Homestead, Cookie Monster (be creative!)
  • Once you have chosen a network name, click Save Settings to save the settings, then clickContinue to return to the setup page.

Step 4

  • Click the Wireless Security tab from the submenu at the top of the page to set your security settings.
  • Set the Security Mode to WPA Pre-Shared Key.
  • Do not change the Group Key Renewal information.
  • Create a password that will be used to access your wireless network. This needs to be entered into the field marked WPA Shared Key.

Creating a Pre-shared Key (Wireless Password)

A Pre-shared key prevents people you don't know from accessing your wireless network. When you connect your computers to your wireless network, you will be asked for the pre-shared key. If someone tries to connect without the pre-shared key, they will be unable to connect.

Your pre-shared key:

  • must have a minimum of 8 alphanumeric characters
  • is case sensitive
  • should never be the same as your Internode password

We recommend you create a complex password for your pre-shared key.

  • Once you have entered a password (pre-shared key), click Save Settings to save the settings.
