Hi,
The simplest way is to type www.routerlogin.com into your internet browser URL address bar. This will take you to your router's menu. It will ask you for a username and password. It might be set to 'admin' and 'password' as default. It is possible that you can just leave it blank.
Then you can change to whatever you like it when you're there.
To encrypt your wireless connection so that nobody can steal it, you can go to Wireless, then Security and Enable WPA or WEP and it'll prompt you to set a password. Do so and write it down somewhere safe.
Now exit the browser and your Wireless Network is protected.

Good Luck and Happy New Year

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. The security key can be found when you access the wireless settings page of the router. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.2.1, the Default password isblank.

Click on Security under Wireless and look for the Security Key or Network Key (Passphrase)

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

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.

How do I set up my router so that my neighbors can not use my internet and keep them from down loading.


You must secure the wireless connection. All of this is done by accessing the router properties and go to "security" and make a WEP key. Once this is completed, your connection should show a padlock, Locked. If you have other PC's / laptops in the house you will need to put this WEP key in simply by trying to connect to your secured network. You will get a request box to type in the WEP key. Do so and that laptop will always be able to access your connection. You only do this once.

For instruction son this go to your routers website and download the manual for it.

HELP!!!!!! Trying to enable wpa-psk security on my laptop?


You should set the security on your computer wifi card to wpa-psk and then type in the securitycode which is written in your Zyxel Router.
If this is not possible with your networkcard, change to wpa or wpa2 inside the Zyxel. And do the same procedure with your networkcard, when detected the Router.

Can't connect to Linksys WRT54G when security is enabled


ccmfaniam:
Please make sure that the type of the security on the router should match on the computer as well. Also make sure the SSID on your router is the same in as your computer.
If this does not work, make another profile onto your computer, or simply click on the wireless icon and it should ask you for the security pass, put in the pass and you should be in.
At the moment I would strongly recommend to make another profile on your laptop, right click on the wireless icon, properties, wireless networks, make sure that the use windows to configure is checked and under prefered networks add the profile of the existing router with same SSID and security you are trying to use.
Let me know!
