You can find the complete manual here.
Go to page 62 and read from there.
You want to change form "Open System" to "Shared Key"
You have to enable WEP and use 256-bit encryption, which gives you a key length of 29 characters. Choose them as randomly as possible, but copy them to a text document. This way you can copy them to a USB drive and deploy it to your computers without re-typing it over and over again.

Just a note: WEP encryption is fairly easy to crack if you know what you're doing. Nevertheless it is better than nothing, but it should not give you a false impression of security. Just google "crack WEP" and you get over a million results...

I have linksys wrt54g2 and want to put a password on it and dont know how


You need to set WAP or WPA2 encryption to prevent public access.

To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Im unable to connect wifi


1. Make sure your wireless capability is active on the item your trying to connect.
2. If you are trying to access your own private network some routers such as the Lynksys WRT120N there is a Wi-FI Protection button.
Enter your routers IP Address within your internet explorer such as some are 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1. Then you will want to enter username and password if you have not done a set up or anyone else it may still be default which usually is admin and password. Once you are in your router menu there is a wireless option. Inside the wireless option you have the option to connect manually (with password) or by wireless protected setup. If you have tried with password to log in and it doesnt work try this option. This is done 2 ways.
1. If your device has a wireless protected option hit the icon button for both and they will synch up.
2. If your device has a wireless protected pin number you will have to enter the numbers into each device to synch to system.

How can i passwpord protect my wireless connection


Re-do the "configuration" -- there is an option for 'SSID' and "pass-phrase" and "password", after you choose 'WEP' or 'WPA' or 'WPA2' as your "encryption" method.

How do I put a password on my Belkin wireless G plus mimo router?


it depends on what you specifically want to password-protect: a. protecting the network from unauthorized users? b. protecting the network's admin interface?
for a. - log into your network's admin interface (usually http://192.168.0.1) - go to the category of wireless security - select the type of network protection you are looking for (strength - i.e. wep, wap, wpa2) and set your password following the steps listed within your router's admin interface...
for b. - log into your network's admin interface (usually http://192.168.0.1) - if you have never done this before, then your username should be filled in as Admin and leave password blank and hit enter.... from there, you are able to change or at least add a password to the interface from unauthorized access (usually under category security)

Can you please help me set up password protection for my Lynksys wireless? Everyone in my neighborhood is using my service and it is slowing down my access.......


http://192.168.0.1/

Remember this address and/or write it down, this address is the common address for your lynksys.

When a popup comes, asking for username/password.
Username: Admin or if it dont work try Superuser
password: password

Then look for Wireless Setting > WPA-PSK(Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) > Then on the bottom should say security passphrase/password (Type in something you will remember or only you will know) >Save settings/Apply and exit.

Now since you've changed your wifi, you need to manually delete and search for your wifi agian since the settings are changed.

If your using Vista: (64bit)

Start > Network > Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Network > Highlight your Wireless connection ( Select Remove) > Add > Then go through the process of finding your wireless connection and you magically got back your protected wireless.

Hope this works.

How do i set a password to protect my wireless internet


Access the Router's page and go to Wireless configuration. You may assigned a WEP key that uses hexadecimal value (A-F, 0-9). So if someone attempts to access your Wireless network, they will prompt to enter a Wep key.
