Question about Linksys BEFW11S4 802.11b Wireless Router/Switch + WMP11 PCI Card (BEFW11S4 + WMP11)
I need to set up a password to secure my wireless router
If its unsecured that means someone close to you can connect to your network..possibly slowing down your connection..,it took me a few times to get it running correctly...

if it says your router is unsecured, it only means that you don't put any username and password on it, try to access your router via IP address, and configure your router there.

192.168.0.1, or other address for your unit, into the ADDRESS bar (not search
box) of your Internet Browser. Every unit has unique access login and
passwords, some are admin with no password, some are admin and admin...seek
access information from the website of the manufacturer of your unit. Look
under support, downloads, drivers or similar sounding areas.
Things to set:

cell #. Consider taping this information to bottom of the router. (Physical

unique to each and every network card. Like a fingerprint. Most users do not
set mac address limits.
