Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
My neighbor noticed my wireless router connection was designated as
"unsecured" and could identify me through my name. How do I secure
both my PC and my laptop - Acer Extensa 7620Z (17+ inch screen) without having to do so many defenses that my wife and son will never be able to receive "common" emails?
I have both Norton 2009 security on the PC and Laptop, as well as Sympatico's own "defenses" for which I pay a montly fee.
Open a browser and type in the address bar 192.168.1.1
It'll prompt you for a username and password, if you used the Linksys Installation CD, remember the username and password that you provided. Else, leave the username blank and key in admin for the password.
Once inside the router, click the Wireless Tab then the Wireless Security sub-tab.
Enable and choose WPA Personal and provide a password for your wireless network at the WPA Shared Key section.
Click Save settings at the bottom.
Your computers will need to reconnect to your network and asked for the security password.
