Try the following procedure on a computer that's directly connected to one of the router ports with an ethernet cable. This procedure will not work if you're connected wirelessly. Open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, and type in http:192.168.1.1. A window should pop up asking for a user name and a password. Don't enter a user name and type admin for the password. Hit ok. The router setup screen should come up. Click on the Wireless tab and then the Wireless Security sub-tab. You can set up encryption on your wireless network using this screen. First select the security mode you want to use. I believe WPA gives better security but I've had some trouble using it on older computers. I use WEP. I've been able to get this encryption scheme to work with all of my computers. Next select the type of encryption. I like 128 bit 26 hex digits. Next enter a pass phrase and hit generate. The pass phrase is like a password. It should now generate four 26 character keys made up of various letters and numbers. Write down the first key and make sure you've checked the 1 box for default transmit key. Save your setting and exit. You wireless network is now secure. If you try to connect to it using a wireless device you will be prompted for a security key. Depending on the operating system you're running, you may just be able to enter the pass phrase or you may need to enter the 26 character key you wrote down. You should only have to do this once for each of your wireless computers. After the first time the computer connects to the secured network it should automatically remember the security code. I hope this advice helps you out.
you will need to browse to the following location
192.168.0.1 on internet explorer or another browser. the default login/pass is
Username = admin
Password = password
or pass = 1234
From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings.
From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.
If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.
you can find it by logging on to your router
go to internet explorer
browse to 192.168.1.1
type in your routers login/pass
if you do not know it or have not change it the default login/pass is
go to the wireless link and security you should see your wireless security key or passphase that you setup.
if it is hidden you can just reconfigure the wireless password with a new one that you can use and will need to reconfigure all other devices that are wireless.
To secure your wireless network you first need to log into your routers configuration settings to do that in your address bar of your browser type http://192.168.0.2 enable either WEP or WPA security and tell it what security key or pass phrase to use.
Then on your computer when you try to connect to your wireless routers signal it will ask you to put in the security key or pass phrase you selected and thats that. You are secure.
WPA with a Pre-Shared Key (PSK), also known as personal. PSK is entered as a pass phrase between 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters in the ASCII format at both ends of the wireless connection. Although PSK accepts a minimum of eight characters, for proper security, it is a good idea to use ample length and should not use a commonly known phrase. This phrase is used to generate session keys that are unique for each wireless client.
WPA pass phrase is a password for the wireless network to make it secured. You can obtain the WPA pass phrase when you access your router. Check the manual of your router for the address, username and password of your router. Go to wireless settings, you will see ther the SSID or Network Name, Network Key or the Pass Phrase and Authentication (WPA/WPA2/WEP). You can personalize the SSID,Network Key and Authentication. Remeber that for you to connect wirelessly the Authentication and Network Key on the router should match the Network Key and Authentication of the Printer or Computer.
1. Click the start menu on the desktop after connecting your desktop or laptop to your router. 2. Click RUN and type cmd and hit enter 3. In the black box type ipconfig/all and hiot enter 4. Note down the default gateway and exit from the black box 5. Open internet explorer and type the default gateway number and hit enter 6. If you have changed the default password and username then enter that or else leave blank the username and in password type admin and hit enter 7. Now in the setup page click wireless and under wireless click wireless security 8. Now select whichever security option you need and enter the passphrase and save settings 9. Turn off the router for 30 seconds. Now your network is secured.
When you get in the interface to configure WEP, set a pass phrase. Write down the 3 numeric keys it generates. Then connect to the wireless using your laptop, etc. When it asks for your passkey, do not enter the pass-phrase; enter one of the three keys that were generated by the router. That's the biggest mistake people make when trying to get wireless to work.
Once you manage to log in, find the firewall region or wireless security region. Make sure to encrypt your wireless connection with the WPA-PSK authentication method using the TKIP encryption. Make sure to write down your pass-phrase, as you will need it to connect to your wireless connection.
