It is asking for an access code to an access point . What is that?


Wireless networks can be secure or unsecure. Anyone can connect to an unsecure site simply by searching for available sites and choosing an unsecure one to connect to. There are inherit risks associarted with unsecure sites and you should NEVER do any financial or highly personal transactions on an unsecure network. Secure networks require a password (access code) to complete connection. This code is provided by the owner/administrator of the network. If you are allowed to connect to such a network, you should already be aware of the code. Otherwise you are basically not invited to the party.

I want to unsecure my network, have problems with all computers ever since i secured netword


Go to you routers IP address from your web browser (try 192.168.1.1 if you don't know it) and put in either the default password for the router (leave username blank, password is "admin") or enter the password you set for the router (this is different from the network password you choose). You can disable security from here.

I am trying to put my brothers lap top on my wireless, I put in the pin but now it ask for the security password


The security password is the password for the router,If you have forgotton the security password there is a reset button in the back of the router Press and Hold for 10-15 seconds/Then give it 1 minute to reboot. However this will reset the router to default settings so if it is secure it will be unsecure/ Here is a link to show you how to secure the Belkin router. Hope this helps

My Router works only if I do not put security password on it.


The router works only if the network is unsecured.
When you secure the wireless network , make sure that you will change the wireless network name also. Because if you change the wireless security and if you keep the same network name then your computer will try to connect to the same network name with the old unsecured settings saved on the computer.
Try to change the SSID ( network name ) and security to WPA, check if that works.
If that doesn't work then I believe you will need to upgrade the FIRMWARE of the router.

Wireless Internet router (home) Security


Unsecured means that you have not set any passwords or keys to lock your wireless connection. This is not a good practice. And yes, if the connection is unsecured, then others will be able to use it without any problems.

Do this if you are comfortable:

1) Go to Internet Explorer
2) Type http://192.168.1.1 (If that does not work, then try http://192.168.1.254)
3) Type the Username and password (both "admin")
4) Look for a Wireless tab
5) Look for Security and then look for WEP encryption.
6) Enable 64-Bit WEP encryption and type a key there. Save the settings.
7) Now when you try to connect to your connection, it will ask you for a key, put the same key as you had put in the router.

Please keep in mind to wire your laptop before doing these steps. Otherwise, you may be disconnected.

Security


Till the time you put a access code for the wireles it would show it as a unsecure connection.You can change this by accessing the router page.Just type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of internet explorer.Than it would ask you for username and password.Its ussually admin and the password field blank.Than go to wireless settings and the security to WEP.than you can put a password of either 5 or 10 digits.U can put your phone # which would be easy to remember and than just save the setting.Next time when you would try to connet to it than it would ask you to put the access code and will show up as secure connection.
I hope that helps
