It sound to me that you have a wireless card in your laptop and you are picking up your neighbors wireless router!!!! which has no SSID set, thus "default" and has no encryption set, thus "unsecured network". Turn off your wireless adapter The only security on a Non-Wireless router is turning on the firewall. It should be enabled by default. The other thing would be to change the password on your router, but since you do not have a wireless router, then it is pointless, unless you do not want someone in your house to access the router settings and make changes. Ever then, if someone in your house that is physically connected to the router with a "cable" could alway walk to the router and stick a pin in the the "reset" hole in the back of the router to reset wipe any changes that was made, so a password is pointless as far as I am concerned for non-wirelss routers. open your browser and type http://192.168.1.1 Admin User name: Leave it blank Password: admin Once you login you can change your password if you like.

    How do i rename wireless network connection


    You need to access the wireless settings via the homescreen for the router. You need to type in the address of your router into your browser of choice, then log in to it. You can find the specific address for your router by looking it up online and what the default sign in name and password is ( you can then change that as well ). Many times the default is as easy as Admin/Password

    Linksys wrt160n network name not showing up?


    Hi Renwar13,

    This is because on the router wireless page the name of the network was changed.

    Usually Linksys is the default name and the person who manages the wireless network would have changed to some other name so as to prevent un authorized access to the WLAN.Please check the right name of the signal and try.


    Regards,
    Gary.

    Usually the default password is admin with having the username blank. If your changed your username and password for the router and it won't log you in then hold the black reset button in till the router resets it's self to default settings.
