If you dont know the password or have forgotten it, just remove the power and hold the reset in under the bottom of the unit in, reconnect the power and count for 7 sec. lights will flash and the password will be default again. It resets it back to factory settings.

I have a wireless router and it works fine, but it is unsecured. How do I set up security ?


Securing wireless is a pretty simple process.

You can access your router by opening a IE browser page, then typing the default gateway IP address on the address line. In my case, my router is a Linksys. The default gateway is 192.168.1.1

Once you type that in, you will get the login prompt for the router. In general, the default user name and password is USERNAME left blank, PASSWORD admin the reverse, or admin for both. If those don't work, check the documentation for your router.

Once you access the router from the browser, you will have an option for Wireless, and in that option to enable security.

Currently, the most popular type of encryption is WPA-TPIK
Select that oprion if available, then select a passphrase. Personally, I suggest an old phone number you recall from your youth, it is 10 digits, and hard to associate with you but easy to remeber. Once you set encryption and the passphrase, save the settings and exit the browser.

When you try to connect to the network again, you'll be prompted for the passphrase, and a confirmation. Once entered twice, then you'll connect and have a secure connection.

Other suggested security items once security is enabled:

1. Change the login and password of the router (Done in the same router setup as the security)
2. Disable the SSID broadcast once the network is configured (Don't advertise the network)
