Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
From a wired connection open you internet browser and type in 192.168.1.1 . The user name or password is usually "admin" or the password is sometimes blank. Once you log in you should change you network name from the default. For example a Linksys router's network name will be Linksys, this is fine unless someone else in you area has the same network name then neither of you will be able to connect.
To set up a wireless security you will need to select the type of security you want to use WPA or WEP and so. WPA is easier to remember as it is just a word you choose, while WEP generates a key based on a word you enter. If you do not set up a key you wireless network will be listed a unsecured.
If you set up a network key make sure to write it down, you will need it for every computer that wants to connect to your network.
If you are still not able to connect to the internet go back to the router menu via you internet brouser again. this time change the last letters of the default server. example 192.168.1.1 --> 192.168.1.4
