    Are you talking about two different passwords? One to access the administration and settings pages of the router and a different password that is the encryption key for the wireless connections?

    What model LinkSys are you using?
    What type of security?

    Is this the administrative login password or the wireless security key.

    The password that is entered on the login page has nothing to do with wireless connections. It just controls access to the administration fuctions so noone can make unathorized changes to the router settings.

    If you are talking about the wireless security key, it must meet certain requirements based on the type of encryption you are using. Both the router and computer must be set fot the same type of security.
