    I've had several visits by the ISP Tech relating to Time Warner Internet Wireless Router "NETGEAR WGR614v6" which I use on both a Laptop and PC, both running WIN XP SP3. The last Technician set up a new WEP KEY that he said was more secure than my previous one. Since I'm in an Apartment Building, I find that there are up to twelve (12) other

    wireless networks in range of my WiFi. Recent Security hardware that I added indicates I get hacked everyday and I suspect that my WEP KEY has been compromised. I found out that the "cable guy" used a very simple, easy to guess, WEP KEY. How can I change it.



    Thank You

Welcome to Fixya

First you need to check is if the WEP key that you are entering is the WEP key of your router. Try to connect a laptop to your computer which do not belong to the network. Say, your friends laptop. This laptop will ask for a security key if it's the first time to connect to the network. Enter your security key and see if the laptop can connect to the network. If it did not connect then the problem is your WEP key.

Have a good one!

Wireless internet connection issues


Verify you have the correct WEP key, if its wrong it will look like it's connected but not do anything, you could aslo try to connect via a cable into your router to confirm it works, if it does then you have a WEP key issue, if it doesnt then you need to dig a little deeper.

Wireless security via MAC address


I would enable WPA encryption and keep the MAC security on. Even though no other computers can connect due to the MAC security, without the encryption your network still looks wide open and it will tempt people to connect. At least if they see there is some sort of encryption on they will not even bother with trying to connect to it.

How to create a security enable router?


Firstly, confirm that your ISP connection for email and internet is working correctly. Then connect the router to the ISP using the ADSL plug, and to your computer using the ethernet connection. It is best to set up your router using a wired connection to your computer. Once set up, you can connect your computer using WiFi. Have your ISP username and password handy.

There are two steps to secure your router:

1. Change your ADMIN password. Using a web browser like Intenet Explorer, type in the address, http://10.1.1.1. This should take you to a sign-on screen. Username is "admin", and password is set at the factory as "admin". You should now be logged in to your router. Go to the TOOLS tab, and change your admin password. NOTE THIS DOWN FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

2. Secure the wireless part of the network: Go to the HOME tab, and select either WEP security (good) or WPA security (better, but some devices like printers don't like this).

For WEP you will need to enter a 10-digit WEP key. Numerals will do, or you can use hexadecimal (base 16) notation if you know this. Numerals will do and are no less secure. NOTE THIS DOWN in a secure place. Click the "APPLY" button.

For the WPA alternative, you should select the "Pre-shared Key" radio button, and code in your WPA password in the "PSK String" field. This can be a word and or numerals. I don't think spaces or other characters are allowed. NOTE THIS DOWN in a secure place. Click the "APPLY" button.

That's IT!! You've changed the admin password and secured the wireless part of the network.

You will then need to code the WEP or WPA password into the devices like printers and computers that you want to connect to the WiFi. For Vista computers, right click on the network icon in the tray (two little computers overlapping) and select "Connect to a network". Enter the WEP or WPA password when you see SSID "default" or your SSID if you've changed it. Most printers have a connection wizard.

There is a further enhancement if you are really paranoid: change the SSID and turn off the SSID broadcast. Go to the manual at:

ftp://files.dlink.com.au/products/DSL-G604T-GenII/Manuals/DSL-G604T_GenII_Manual_v1.11.pdf

if you want further details. Good luck with your secure network.

How do i password protect my Router???


follow the steps below:

  1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router.
  2. Open your web browser and type the router IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
  3. Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
  4. Click Security under Wireless menu.
  5. Under Security, you can select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bit WEP) or WPA/WPA2-personal (PSK). Note: make sure that your wireless computers will be able to support WPA encryption since not all wireless cards/adapters will be able to. if you're not sure, WEP is the encryption to use
Configuring WEP Encryption:

  1. 1. Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength). You may also enter a pass phrase and have the router generate a key for you.
  2. 2. Apply the settings. Please write down the key – You will need it later to configure your wireless computers with the same key.
Configuring WPA-PSK Encryption:

  1. Select WPA2-PSK as your Authentication
  2. Select AES as the Encryption Technique.
  3. Enter a word or group of characters in the Password (PSK) box. The Pre-Shared Key must be 8 to 63 characters in length.
    Note: The PSK (Pre-Shared Key) is case sensitive ("A" is different than "a")
  4. Click Apply changes to save the settings.
once you have enabled your wireless security, you need to reconnect your wireless computer to the wireless signal using your wireless password/network key.

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you'll have other concern
ciao!

Wep key


Use a computer that is currently connected to the router. Open Internet Explorer and go to http://192.168.2.1 It will ask you for a user name and password that you created during set up. The password is blank by default. You are then logged into the router and can view or change the WEP key, or any other settings for the router.
