Ok so I just setup my old Linksys WRT54G (v3) at my new place, but I don't have the cd that came with it. It's been a while since I've used the router or setup a wireless network, so perhaps I'm a bit rusty. Before I remembered that I needed that cd to configure the network (encrypt wireless, etc), I tried to do so (within Windows) via Wireless Network Connection Properties, under Wireless Networks tab, then in Preferred Networks area, and then by clicking on my network (by default "linsys") and then the Properties tab. Once I get to this I'm able to change Network Authentication and Data Encryption. So I changed Network Authentication to WPA-PSK and changed Data Encryption to AES. I then entered a network key. The first time I did this it didn't work, and after doing this I was unable to connect to the network. So I restarted and was able to connect to the network but it wasn't encrypted. I tried this another time, and everything happened the same way except for that after I restarted, my network was encrypted. After trying the same method again, there were the same results as the first trying to encrpyt with this method. After that (where I'm at now) I am able to connect to the network but it says Not Connected in the Wireless Network Connection window. I'm a bit dumbfounded by all this. Any ideas how this happened? Suggestions for resolving this and correctly configuring and encrypting my network without the linksys cd would be much appreciated. Note that there is button on the front left of the router that says Cisco Systems but I read that it is supposedly called Secure Easy Setup or something along the lines, not sure how it works or how I could use it in this situation if at all. Also, I'm running Windows XP Service Pack 2. Lastly, its a Toshiba laptop so it comes its own Network Configuration software, though I'm not using it.
