- Resolving issues encountered when wirelessly connecting to the Linksys Wi-Fi Routers
Linksys Wi-Fi Routers use the Wireless-N standard for best performance and security. With it you can connect multiple devices to the wireless network. However, there are instances when you encounter issues while connecting. This article will guide you on how to resolve issues when wirelessly connecting to your Linksys Wi-Fi Routers.
- Distance from the router
- Incorrect wireless password/security key
- Wireless adapter not enabled
- The wireless connection manager used
- Firewall/Antivirus software that may block connection
- Wireless MAC Filtering enabled on the router
- Outdated router firmware
Firewall/Antivirus software that may block connection
Linksys Wi-Fi Routers have a feature called Wireless MAC Filter which allows you to specify the wireless devices you want to permit on your wireless network. You may need to add the MAC Address of your computer or device to the router's Wireless Client List because this feature will only allow registered devices to connect to the network.

Outdated router firmware
Firmware updates can fix issues on a router. If all of your wireless computers and devices have problems connecting to the wireless network, you may need to update the router's firmware. For step-by-step instructions on how to do this, click here.
