You should go here and choose the right version for your router (version 1 - version 9).
Then download the User manual from the next page.
The instructions are pretty detailed and easy to follow.

I have wep on my i pad but router is wps


WPS is not a security feature, it just makes set-up easier. It works with devices that have a push button connect feature. Not all devices have that, but all devices can be added manually.

Your iPad can be logged into the router's wireless network, probably WPA or WPA2 (more secure) by using the iPad's on-board network tool.

First: (if this is not already done) Log into your router software. Locate your Wireless Network Set-up page & give your wireless network a unique name, like "Molly McGee" or some such, so you can identify yours from the neighbors.
Set up a shared password in the wireless network panel. Save this information for your household. Write it all down so you can use it to add new devices later.
Also note what type of Security scheme you are setting up (WPA, WPA2 personal etc- some devices ask for this info)

When the Wireless network is configured: On your iPad, go to Settings> Wi-Fi, Choose your network, this should open a panel so you can enter the shared password. Enter it and you should be good to go.

If you live in a very insecure place such as an apartment complex or over a retail space etc, you can choose to make your network invisible to outsiders. If you do this, you will have to ask to join the network each time you disconnect from it. You can easily locate and join it with the specific network name and security info- but creepers won't see your network and try to get in.

Hi i have just bought a seconhand cnmbook for my son for christmas and it came with no instructions how do i connect it ti my wifi broadband


When you clickRefresh network list, then Choose your wirelessnetwork and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, itwill asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connectinto your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, orWPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphraseis an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

How can i find out my old password and reset it so i can add another lap top


The network security key (password) is the router's wireless encryption key.
To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router's wireless settings configured ie SSID WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

I have a linksys WRT54G wireless router set-up. The problem is when I add the security features (to keep the neighbours from hijacking my signal) my son's MAC laptop and Play Station 3 won't work.


You want to secure the wireless network.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router with the cable.
Check the IP address on the computer. Open the router set up page.
Once you open the set up page, you will find the option to make it secured

I need to add a password to my wireless network


Do you want to secure the wireless network ?
For that you will need to access the router set up.
You said that you want to add a password. I don't understand that. Is your wireless network already secured ? Or you want to make it secured ?
If it is already secured then it must have the password to connect to the wireless network. You can use only 1 password for the network. You can not use 2 password for the wireless network.
If your network is not secured yet then you will need to make it secured and enable password protection on it.

Need To Secue Network


hello!

there are so many way you can secure your wireless network.

CHANGE THE SSID AND CHANNEL

1: Open the router page 192.168.1.1 >> type this in the internet explorer address bar.
2: Click Wireless from the left menu
3: The settings to Wireless section of Router appear.Click Channel and SSID.
4: Change the Wireless Network Name (SSID) To identify your wireless network. To change the SSID, type in the SSID that you want to use in the SSID field and click Apply Changes.
5: Change the Wireless Channel to 1, 6 or 11. If there are other wireless networks operating in your area, your network should be set to operate on a channel that is different than the other wireless networks. Select channel from Wireless Channel drop-down menu. Click Apply Changes.

CHANGE THE WIRELESS MODE

Using the Wireless Mode Switch. This switch allows you to set the Router’s wireless modes. There are several modes. Note: Some modes may require firmware updates to be enabled. Select wireless mode from Wireless Mode drop-down menu. Click Apply Changes.

a) 802.11g only - this mode will allow only 802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.

b) 802.11g & 802.11b - this mode will let 802.11g- and 802.11b-compliant devices to join the network.

c) 802.11n & 802.11g - this mode will allow N1/draft 802.11n- and 802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.

d) 802.11n only - this mode will allow only N1/draft 802.11n-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out 802.11g and 802.11b devices.

e) Off - This mode will turn OFF the Router’s access point, so no wireless devices can join the network. Turning off the wireless function of your Router is a great way to secure your network when you are away from home for a long period of time, or don’t want to use the wireless feature of the Router at a certain time.

DISABLE SSID BROADCAST

This advanced feature will not broadcast your network’s SSID. Doing so will keep your network name hidden from computers that are scanning for the presence of wireless networks. To turn off the broadcast of the SSID, remove the check mark from the box next to Broadcast SSID, and then click Apply Changes.

ENABLE WIRELESS SECURITY
To access the security settings, click Security.

Setting WPA Security

Note: To use WPA security, your wireless network cards must be equipped with software that supports WPA. WPA-PSK uses what is known as a pre-shared key as the security key. A pre-shared key is basically a password that is between eight and 39 characters long. It can be a combination of letters, numbers, or characters.

a) From the Security Mode drop-down menu, select WPA-PSK (no server).
b) For Encryption Technique, select TKIP or AES. This setting will have to be identical on the clients that you set up.
c) Enter your pre-shared key. This can be from eight to 39 characters and can be letters, numbers, or symbols. This same key must be used on all of the clients that you set up.
d) Click Apply Changes to finish. You must now set all clients to match these settings.

ENABLE WIRELESS MAC ADDRESS FILTERING

The MAC address filter is a powerful security feature that allows you to specify which computers are allowed on the wireless network. This list applies only to wireless computers. This list can be configured so any computer attempting to access the wireless network that is not specified in the filter list will be denied access. When you enable this feature, you must enter the MAC address of each client (computer) to which you want to allow network access. The Block feature lets you turn on and off access to the network easily for any computer without having to add and remove the computer’s MAC address from the list.

Setting up an Allow Access List

1. Click MAC Access Control.

2. Select the Allow radio button to begin setting up a list of computers allowed to connect to the wireless network.

3. Next, in the MAC Address field that is blank, type in the MAC address of the wireless computer you want to be able to access the wireless network, then click Add.

4. Continue to do this until all of the computers you want to add have been entered.

Setting up Wireless Security ? BEFW11S4


Securing your wireless network is a simple process, which generally does not require a lot of time. Please follow these instructions to secure your wireless network. Accessing the Router 1. Go to your desktop and double click on Internet Explorer (Located on the Start Menu in Windows XP) 2. When "Internet Explorer" opens type http://192.168.1.1into the "Address" bar and click on Go 3. The "Enter Network Password" window will appear. 4. Skip user name and type admin (admin is the default password) as the password, and click OK Setup Page Security Options When you arrive at the Setup page, you'll see the bulk of your wireless security features. There are three things you're going to want to set on this page: 1. SSID a) Delete linksys from the "SSID" field b) Input your own unique SSID. We general recommend something easy to remember, but secure enough to where people would not be able to guess it easily. Sometimes your best bet is to use your last name and add some numbers. a) Click Apply then Continue 1. SSID Broadcast (Firmware 1.42.7 and above only) a) Click No on the Allow "Broadcast" SSID to associate? b) Click Apply then Continue 2. WEP a) Click Mandatory for the "WEP" Option b) Click the WEP Key Settings button c) When the "Wep Key Settings" Window appears, change the option from 64 to 128* NOTE: 128 bit WEP may not work on non-Linksys products due to its lack of an IEEE standard d) Enter a passphrase** that is different from the SSID. Try to make it alphanumeric; instead of password, use password5532. Once the key has been Generated copy the key into a notepad document and copy that file onto a floppy. **NOTE: The passphrase will not work with non-Linksys products, so you will need to use the passphrase that you copied onto floppy. e) Click Apply then Continue f) Close the window g) Click Apply then Continue on the setup page. Setting up Station MAC Filter The Station MAC Filter option is a very good security feature that has been added to Firmware 1.42.7 and above. This option denies all wireless clients except those listed. To implement this feature please follow these instructions: 1. From the "Setup" page, click Advanced 2. When the "Filters" page opens, click on the Wireless tab 3. Make sure all wireless computers are setup to the router, and are currently able to access the internet. Once this is done, click on the Active MAC Table button. 4. Move the "Wireless Active MAC Table" window and click on Edit MAC Filter Settings on the main window. 5. When the "Wireless Group MAC Table" opens, go to the task bar and click on the Wireless Active MAC Table so that window appears. 6. With the two windows side by side enter the MAC Addresses from the "Wireless Active MAC Table" window into the Wireless Group MAC Table. - NOTE: When you enter the MAC Addresses do not include the dashes, and do not click "Filter" 7. Click Apply then Continue in the "Wireless Group MAC Table" window. 8. Close the "Wireless Group MAC Table" window and the "Wireless Active MAC Table" window 9. On the Main window Enable the Station MAC Filter setting.
