How to reset password on a Linksys Wireless-G PrintServer WPS54G
Posted on 2009-06-27
I put a password on the above printserver, and now it does not respond to the router.
How can I reset or flush the password on this printserver, so it can respond back to the wireless router?
ps:here is the background why this happened and why i am where i am:
I chose the WPA2-Personal encryption option to sync up my router(Wireless-G Access Point WAP54G ) and printserver (Linksys Wireless-G PrintServer WPS54G). I put the passphrase in the router and I thought I will put the same in the printserver without conversion. But I was not able to login into the printserver box(because apparently it does not have the password/passphrase as the router. So I went back into the router, and disabled wireless security in the router. Now I was able to go into the printserver.
So I thought I will put the WPA2-Personal passphrase/password there in the printserver, and then go to the router, and put the same there also. The printserver took my passphrase ok. Then I went to the router, and put the same password/passphrase. But the printer was not responding now. So I wanted to go back and disable the wireless security to think about the next phase of action, but now it will not allow me to go into printserver box. I was able to go into the router, and disable the security there. But alas, the printserver will not allow me in.
I guess my next action step is to somehow disable the wireless security. But how? And after that, my next action step will be make the router and printserver talk back and forth with a common password.
The option on the printserver are 64 bit keys, 128 bit keys, WPA Personal, WPA2 Personal.
The options on the router are WEP, WPA Personal, WPA2 Personal,WPA2 Mixed, WPA Entrprise & Radius & of course 'disabled'.
so seems like i have to choose between WPA Personal or WPA2 Personal.
