SSID disappeared on Linksys router
Posted on 2011-02-22
I've run a linksys 802.11g wireless router trouble-free for many years. Over the weekend it seems to have stopped broadcasting the SSID, with its associated WAP security key. On my 3 wireless PC's, when I search for wireless networks, it is only coming up as "Linksys" as an unsecured network, and is not asking for the secure ID.
Answering "why" this happened may be educational so if you can share, please do.
more importantly, I can't find the set up disk that came with it to wire into it to do any reconfiguration. If I truly can't find it, how do I reconfig it make it a secure network?
With the omni-present security risks today, what all should I look out for?
