Here's how I did it. I went to Selected the type and model router which accesse the on-line product manual. Followed the instructions and using the cntrl-F keys search on 'password" finding the IP address to place in a new browser window address. I selected the "Basic Settings" menu then selected the password option and over-wrote the ************ showing is the Admin section and User section. Got ride of the (unsecured) indication on my icon. It was bothering me to death also. Hope this helps.

How to configure router to other computer without internet?

For a computer to connect to router there is no need for internet.
If your router is active and functional any computer in its range can be connected with wires by ethernet port or wirelessly with wireless card.
If your computer has wireless card it will recognize the Linksys router and you can connect automatically unless you have a password set for wireless security.
If you need to log on to the router and change settings first step is connect your computer to router wireless or wired then open web browser like Internet explorer or firefox. type this will open a dialogue box for user id and password leave user id blank and type admin in password line. once you are router page you can configure settings on router.

If you're connected to the router (via wireless or ethernet cable), all you have to do is...

3) Click the black "Wireless" tab so it highlights purple.

4) Click the sub-tab "Wireless Security".

5) In the "Key 1" box, enter your desired password for your internet connection.

Secure my wireless internet

Well, there are two things that go into securing a router. First, a user name and password for logging in and second a security access key. Let me explain how to set up both of them:

Please retrieve these instructions in Notepad because you will be losing internet connection as you perform the steps.

1) First you need to log in to make changes to the router. The default IP address for that is Type that into the address bar and press enter. You will be asked for login details. Here's the default login:
ID: (Leave blank)
Pass: admin (case sensitive)

2) Now you need to change those default login details to your personal ones.
Click on Administration tab -> You will see multiple dots in the password field -> Erase them and enter a personal password -> Scroll down and click save settings -> You will be asked to re login with the new password.
A strong password is the one with numbers, letters and different cases. Example: Cbr600RR

3) Next you need to secure your router's wireless internet connection with an access key. Most people use the WEP security. That however, is not the best option. Several programs are available online that can crack a WEP key. I will suggest a better option: WPA.
Click on Wireless Tab -> Change the Wireless Network Name (SSID) from "linksys" to a personal one. This is optional but recommended so that you can search for your internet connection faster if there are multiple available in your neighborhood (always the case in apartments).
Under Wireless Channel select 10 or 11. This helps keep your connection faster since most neighboring routers2_bing.gif will broadcast at the default channel 6 which leads to interference and disconnection. Click Save settings when you are done. The router takes some time to save those settings and restart itself.

4) Go to Wireless tab again -> Wireless Security -> Security Mode -> WEP -> Passphrase -> Enter a favorite word -> Generate -> Select any one of the four generated keys and copy it (Right click -> Copy). Note down this key for later use.
Go back to Security Mode -> WPA Personal -> WPA Shared Key -> Paste the copied key here -> Save settings. That will be your to connect to your router. Please note this down somewhere safe as you will need it to let other computers connect as well.

You have successfully secured your router. Let me know if you need more help. Take care!

Unable to connect to the internet with a new loptop.

is your wifi broadcasting non-secured signal? try protecting your wireless network with a password. In your case, it might be caused by incompatible protocol like 802.11 a/b/g and if your encryption method is incompatible with your router.

Setup your encryption to WAP not WAP2 in your router interface (http;// and configure your Vista to connect to your network using that encryption.
