Need to secure my router


Try the following procedure on a computer that's directly connected to one of the router ports with an ethernet cable. This procedure will not work if you're connected wirelessly. Open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, and type in http:192.168.1.1. A window should pop up asking for a user name and a password. Don't enter a user name and type admin for the password. Hit ok. The router setup screen should come up. Click on the Wireless tab and then the Wireless Security sub-tab. You can set up encryption on your wireless network using this screen. First select the security mode you want to use. I believe WPA gives better security but I've had some trouble using it on older computers. I use WEP. I've been able to get this encryption scheme to work with all of my computers. Next select the type of encryption. I like 128 bit 26 hex digits. Next enter a pass phrase and hit generate. The pass phrase is like a password. It should now generate four 26 character keys made up of various letters and numbers. Write down the first key and make sure you've checked the 1 box for default transmit key. Save your setting and exit. You wireless network is now secure. If you try to connect to it using a wireless device you will be prompted for a security key. Depending on the operating system you're running, you may just be able to enter the pass phrase or you may need to enter the 26 character key you wrote down. You should only have to do this once for each of your wireless computers. After the first time the computer connects to the secured network it should automatically remember the security code. I hope this advice helps you out.

now at the top page click on HOME NETWORK, then click on WIRELESS SETTINGS or EDIT STTINGS (it'll asked you to enter a system password. if you cant remember it just click on 'I forgot my password and it'll give you a clue. and f you still cant remember you can click on 'I still cant remember my password and this this time it'll allows you to change it but first you have to enter the sytsem key that can be found at the bottom part of the modem under the bar code the one inside the parenthesis its a total of 10 numbers)
Now, just click on home network and wireless settings again then it'll bring up IDENTIFY NETWORK PAGE.
change the network name to your last name or any name, then for the wireless channel, change it to 10, make sure its WEP-OPEN, then select use custom pass phrase then enter 10 numbers that would serve as your wireless pw. then at the bottom part find power setting then change it to 10, then clicked on SAVE.
now on your ipod try to find the network name the you created then if it asked you for the wep key or pw...that's gonna be the 10numbers that you're about to create on the GUI.

I cant remember my passkey. I have cd


Take an invented-in-Norway paper-clip, and straighten one end.

Push the end into the small hole in the back of the router.
This will reset the router to its "factory-default" settings.
Then, run the software on the CD to assign a new pass-key.

Can not remember or find network security key


You may need to access the router's setup page to check the security key or the network key you have set up to the router. To do this:
  1. Launch IE and type 192.168.1.1 on the address field using a computer that is wired to the router. It is the default IP address of the router. It will then ask for a username and password. By default, there is no username and the password is admin.
  2. Once you're in the router's user Interface, click Wireless tab. There is a sub-tab under Wireless which is called Wireless Security. Click on it.
  3. There you will find the type of wireless security you have enabled in your router as well as the network key.
Hope this helps!
