You have to go to the router configuration. To reach it, you go with Internet Explorer (or Firefox, or else). In the documentation of your router, you will find an IP address by default for your router (or go to the RCA website and find the doc, by the model number). That IP address is the way to enter to the config. Enter the address in the address bar, for example http://192.168.0.0 in the web-browser. In the documentation, you will also find a login name and password for your router (that you will change afterwards). So, once in the configuration, you will find a section for the security, to select the security mode and choose a password.

SOURCE: creating a secure internet connection

You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.
Let me know how you make out.

I need the wep security code for my sons dsi to download games on it from the internet. router name arris model # cm450a


When you did the initial setup for your router, you should have configured the wireless adapter in the router:
* set a SSID -- the "name" of the network
* set an encryption-level -- hint: use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* set a password for your network

It's that SSID/password that you need to enter on the DSI, to make a wireless connection to your router.

If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
.
Click on wireless settings enable wireless then WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.If you are able to see password in * or # then you need o add new password but if you are able to read it then note down it then you can connect with it.
