Securing wireless network connection

I have an Arris TM502g wireless router. I would like to know if there is a download that would enable me to make my wireless connection 'secured'.

It is presently unsecured.

Thank you.

    Thank you for responding. I guess that is the problem, that I only have a modem and not a router. Again thank you for your help.

    According to Arris' website, the TM502G is a modem only, not a router. If you have this connected to a wireless router, we'd need to know the brand and model of the router. Most routers already support several types of wireless security protocols, but accessing and setting them up differs.

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.

Where do I fine SSID Name & Encryption Key


If you are trying to set up a router and need to establish the SSID name and WPA encryption key, you will need to sign into the router using the routers IP address. Input the userid and password, then go to the wireless network setup page. Here is where you enable wireless operation, establish the SSID, and generate the encryption key or passphrase.

If you are trying to connect to someone else's wireless network, you need to know their SSID so that when you do a search for available networks you can determine which is theirs. Once that is established, if they give you the encryption key or passphrase, you can attempt to connect to their network. With the encryption key or passphrase, you will not be able to connect.

There's a reset button on the back of the modem. It'll power cycle it. That should work and if it doesn't make sure everything is connected and tightened.

Where do I find the WEPkey for Arris TM502G? The question is posted all over the internet, but no real answers.


The WEP key is a encryption key that is configured in the wireless settings of the wireless router. This setting is then applied to the wireless card in the computer so it can connect to the wireless router.

Wi-Fi isn't working


This could be a duplex issue. When you log into the belkin does is assign you an IP address? Have you used a ballpoint pen to reset the EMTA since you have connected the router?

I have arris tm502g modem n want to hook up 2nd pc wont work


You need a router or network switch to share the single connection from this cable modem. Wireless router if you're so inclined. Comcast is about to jack the rental rate for that modem from $3.50 to $5 on January 1, at least in Atlanta.
