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.
