Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
Please tell me how to make my network connection secure. I understand there is a hacker that has been able to hack through a wpa system, and at present I have had all security removed from my network. Thanks,
Standard WPA security will work just fine. You can configure your wireless setup via the web interface for the router. Here's a link to the Linksys website, where there is step-by-step documentation on how to do this. Basically, you just set up a key (a password) in the router, and any system trying to connect via wi-fi has to have that key to get in. It is highly unlikely anyone can hack this, if you use a resonably sized key (8 characters, minimum).
Don't be afraid - wi-fi setup is very simple, and should only take you about 5 minutes. To open the web interface to the router, type "192.168.1.1" into the address bar. Leave the user name blank, and type "admin" for the password. You can (and should) change those later. The user guide has a very clear and concise checklist to follow for setting up wireless security. Follow it, and you will be fine.
Here's that link:
If that link doesn't work (long ones can be a problem), then just go to Linksys.com, select the download section, and put in your router model number.
