Hi,
Type 192.168.0.1 into your internet address bar. (If this doesn't work try 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 or whatever your router's ip is)
It will ask you for a username and password. The defaults are:
username: admin password: admin
or
username: admin password: 1234

Now find the Wireless Security section, or suchlike, from the menu and choose either WEP or WPA (stronger encryption) and Enable.

Remember to write down your passphrase somewhere safe!

I need to setup my router password for users and I don't know how to do it


The DIR-600 supports the latest wireless security features to prevent unauthorized access, be it from over the wireless network or from the Internet. Support for WPA™ and WPA2™ ensure the usage of the best possible encryption available, regardless of your client devices. In addition, the DIR-600 utilizes dual active firewalls (SPI and NAT) to prevent potential attacks from across the Internet. Plus, the DIR-600 includes Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) with a push button feature that easily sets up and activates your network security functions.

I need to conect a wifi kindel and dont know the password


The password is the encryption key in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the laptop/computer to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer/laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

I dont know ho to change the password on the PK5000Z Wireless Router


I just set up my new ZyXEL PK500Z, so happen to know this answer. In the ZyXEL Qwest Modem Configuration (launch 192.168.0.1), select Wireless Setup, then Wireless Security. Scroll down to Enter Security Key/Passphrase. Unless you changed this, Use Default is selected. If you want to use a password of your own creation, select Use Custom, then enter the password you want. Finish with Apply. Everything connected to your network will be prompted to re-enter the password. Is this what you were after?

My Zyxel P-600 series modem is connected to my desk top. Can i get a wireless connection to my laptop?


Yes you should! Download a manual for your router and read how you start the wireless LAN. I think you login to your router by writing 192.168.1.1 in the URL window in a web browser. Password is 1234 as default. Be sure to encrypt the AP with WPA so that your neighbours dont use your internet conection.

Try resetting the router if nothing works. This will bring it back to factory defaults . Once it is back to default settings, you would have to configure it again.
hope this helps

How do i make my router secure


Setup the router to have WPA2 encryption. You will create an encryption key. This will make it so that no one except those who know the encryption key can use the Wireless network.

If this solves your problem please rate it.
