Hi, start internet explorer (blue e) in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and press enter
in the new screen, type in the password to enter the set jup (as it says, admin is the default)
click wireless settings on the left hand side of the screen, click encryption, select wpa-psk from the drop down boxwhere it says pre-shared key, type in a MEMORABLE password and then click apply. Now you will lose your wireless signal. Panic ye not! Click on the smatt TV in the lower right hand side of the screen (this is called the sys-tray) you will now see that the wireless icon which looks a bit like a telly eith 3 yellow arcs coming out of it's right hand side has a red cross on it. Click it once, click view wireless networks and then on the new screen click refresh network list. You will after a few seconds see your network -click on it and then on connect. A new box will come up asking you for the networe key aka password. Enter the memorable password you have just forgotten in the upper and lower boxes and press enter. Et voila! you now have an encrypted wireless network and you can only get onto it if you know the memorable password! Have fun

Router password is the password to access the router settings.
SSID is the network name. When you try to connect to the wireless network on your laptop, you will see this network name.
If your network is secured network then it will ask you for the network key or the password. You need to enter the ' security key '.

How do I set up a password so others cannot access our internet? someone told me i have reset button on router but i don't


No need to reset the router.
You just need to open the set up page of the router.
Once you open the set up page of the router, you will find the wireless settings.
Set up page is the page of the router where you will find the settings of the router and you can change settings of the router.
Now to open the set up page of the router , you will need to check the IP address on the computer. There might be a password on the router.
If you don't know the password of the router, then try the default password for the router.
If the default password doesn't work then you will need to reset the router and reconfigure the router.

Changing password making the network secured


Access the Linksys configuration page as described in your instructions.
Select WPA or WPA2 as the wireless security encryption
Select PSK or TKIP and enter a network key (a.k.a. Password) to secure the connection.
The devices you connect to the Linksys must support the encryption you select.
Older devices might force you to use older encryption like WEP but be aware that WEP has been hacked since 2007 so it really isn't very secure anymore.

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.

Belkin n1 wireless router no security!!


You need to setup security through the web browser interface. You can connect to the web based interface by pointing your browser to the IP address of the router. U will be asked for a username and password after which there is a security tab where in you can set WEP/WPA encryption and password, etc.
