Linksys WRT120N router setup

I think Linksys WRT120N router setup is very easy and you can do it manually by opening the setup page with the default password. Linksys WRT120N router has free technical support for only one year. If your WRT120N router is more than 1 year old then it is probably Out of warranty. Out of warranty does not mean that your router is broken or it is bad. It is still in a working condition, you just need easy steps to make it working again. Cisco is marketing the Linksys WRT120N router as a “Wireless-N” router. But if you go through reviews on other websites it is not Draft 802.11n Certified. It supports only a maximum 150 Mbps Link Rate (actually 65 Mbps with out-of-the-box defaults). You will also find many customer reviews about this Linksys WRT120N. They are facing a lot of problem with the performance of WRT120N. Connectivity is not so good. If you have the CD of WRT120N then run the CD to configure it. You can also setup the Linksys WRT120N router without CD. How to setup Linksys WRT120N router without CD: Linksys WRT120N router setup is easy. You can simply open the Linksys router setup interface and change the settings manually. You don’t even need to run the installation CD. Connect your main computer to the Ethernet port and modem to the Internet port on the router. Open the setup page of the router. Setup page is the place where you can change the settings of your router manually. Change the Internet connection settings so that your main computer will be able to access Internet through the router. Linksys WRT120N router setupOnce you have your main computer on line through your router then setup a wireless network. Change the name of the wireless network ( SSID ). Create a new network name that you have never used before. Change the wireless security settings. Avoid WEP security because that will reduce the wireless speed and also WEP security can be cracked easily. For better wireless connection, use WPA or WPA2 security. Change the wireless channel to 9 or 11. For better wireless connection, use WPA2 security with AES encryption. However WPA2 is not accepted by some old operating system such as windows XP SP1.
