Question about Linksys WRT54GS Wireless Broadband Router 4 x 10/100Base-TX 1 x 10/100Base-TX IEEE 802.11b/g Wireles... (WRT54GSFT)
We want to secure our wireless network from outside influence and possible virus' and hackers
The steps I'm about to teach you is to create a WPA Personal Network Key to prevent random users from accessing and altering your network.
Go to Start > Run. Type in cmd and press enter. A black box will appear with some text in it. Type in ipconfig and press enter. Some more text will appear. Look for the words Default Gateway. Next to them will be an IP Address. Type this IP address into your browser.
A diolouge box will appear, asking you for a username or password. If you have not configured this already, leave the username field blank and type in the password field admin. THe Linksys router configuration page will display.
Click the tab taht says Wireless. Click the subtab that says Wireless Security. In the drop down box that says security mode, select WPA Personal. Make sure where it says WPA Algorithms, TKIP is selected. In the WPA Shared Key box, type in a password that you are sure you will remember, or write it down. When finished, selected the button that says Save Settings.
Your network is now secure with the key you have made. The default SSID (or network username) is called linksys.
