I have a linksys wireless modem. More specifically: Wireless G-ADSL Home Gateway.

Currently it provides internets for my pc and my laptop, but both by a cable. When I try to connect to it wirelessly from my laptop, it requires a password. How do I change/set this password?

Did you type that intentionally?

Anyway, look at the back of the modem. The WEP key is usually there.

If the above doesn't work, type 192.168.0.1 into the url bar of your browser and hit enter, that should take you to your router's config page (if not, replace the 0 with a 1, one of the two should work). (do this on a computer connected via cable)

If it asks for login stuff, put admin as your login, and don't put a password, there usually isn't one. If there is, try 1234, or look in the router's documentation.

Anyways, once you're there, you should be able to find the WEP key in there. It might be a long string of random characters though, so you'll want ot write it down.

reset the router. then log into the router using the ip address. login is admin with no password for default for most routers. u can change settings from there

Haha. I used to log in to my neighbour's Linksys. Until he upgraded to WEP ... Then I cracked it. Then he went to WPA, and I'm cracking it right now. Moral of the story ? Beware, man, and protect your network.
