Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I would like our router to be only used by those that I have given the password to. How do I make it secure?
Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the router. DO NOT use a wireless connection, use a cable.
Open your web browser and type the IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1) in the address bar and press Enter.
Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
Click Security under Wireless menu.
Under Security, Select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bit WEP).
Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength). You may also enter a pass phrase and have the router generate a key for you. Example (0102030405060708090a0b0c)
Apply the settings. Please write down the key – You will need it later to configure your neighbors wireless computer with the same key.
DO NOT GIVE HIM the password for the router.
Remember to set the admin password before you close down, other vice anyone can access you router and change the setup and admin password.
