HI peggy try these steps
1. Open your router setup page (rsp) by typing in 192.168.2.1. from your base computer (one which is wired)
2. On the left hand side under wireless on rsp you"ll find security
3. Click on that ------ You"ll see drop down menu
4. Select preferrably 64 bit wep or Wpa -psk no server
5. just type in 10 digit no in key 1 in case of 64 wep or pre shared key in wpa psk no server and click apply changes .
6.IMP : PLz remember your password 10 digit no or shared key
7. Disconnect your wireless
8. Reconnect ---- you"ll see it prompting for a password

On some routers, you can use your computer to make a security code on the router. once that is done, they cant use it unless they find out the security code

How do I prevent my neighbor from using my wireless router?


If you do not have any wireless network security enabled on the router, your neighbor can see this SSID and connect to the network without authorization. While this is generally frowned upon as being unethical, it is technically not illegal as you have "made the network available" by failing to secure it. The easiest way to secure the network is through the use of a WEP key or a WPA pass-phrase. WEP keys are generally 5, 10, 13 or 26 randomly generated characters long. WPA pass-phrases are just that - a phrase such as "The sun is yellow". Either method will prevent unauthorized users from accessing your network. Only those individuals who possess the key or pass-phrase are granted access.

These options is located under the Wireless > Wireless Security tabs from within the router administration.After login you can change the password.

What is network key


A wireless network key is a security feature that prevents unauthorized users from accessing a wireless network. It can be a simple password or a self-generated combination of digits and letters. A good number of wireless networks are still left unprotected, leaving them vulnerable to hackers and data thieves. Most home and SOHO routers allow users to configure a high degree of wireless security.

What is a network key?


Hello there
network key is a security feature that prevents unauthorized users from accessing a wireless network. It can be a simple password or a self-generated combination of digits and letters. A good number of wireless networks are still left unprotected, leaving them vulnerable to hackers and data thieves. Most home and SOHO routers allow users to configure a high degree of wireless security easily.
There are many types of wireless security scenarios to consider when configuring a wireless network. The most common types for home and office use are WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access). Each of these types has multiple options and different bits (which heighten security of the wireless network). There is also an entire spectrum of more complex, enterprise-wide wireless security standards, but most of these are well beyond the scope of the average computer user.

Improving Wireless Range: Tuning Equipment



Using the best channels has a big effect on network performance. Your goal is to choose settings that avoid interference from other networking and radio frequency equipment. (If you have 802.11a or 802.11a/g, channel selection is less important, skip to "Reducing Wireless Network Traffic".)
To see all your options start with: Improving Wireless Range: Overview

If you have a simple home network, and aren't close to neighbors with wireless equipment, you may be lucky enough just to choose between many channels that work well.

Complications arise when:

  • You want much better coverage than you're getting.
  • You use multiple access points or wireless routers. (Then you'll probably be using more than one channel.)
  • You aren't the only person nearby running a wireless network.

Simple Spacing of Channels

As explained in Improving Wireless Range: Overview, improving signal strength is not like adding more lights to get a brighter livingroom. Devices that transmit powerfully - such as routers, access points, and cell phone base stations - confuse one another. It's necessary to distance them and to have them use different channels.

For 802.11b and 802.11g, there are 11 channels for wireless equipment (13 channels in Europe). In the simple situation where there's little interference, you can choose any channel that works for you. When there is interference from wireless networks that overlap with one another, each network should use one of the non-overlapping channels: 1, 6, or 11 (1, 7, 13 in Europe). Then, 3 networks can use the same space with minimum interference. If you can't do that, choose channels as widely spaces as possible.
You can use a combination of access points and antennas and other equipment to create local "spotlights" of strong transmission, rather than trying to cover everywhere.

What If a Channel I Want to Use Has Too Much Noise (Interference)?

If your neighbor has a wireless network, it wouldn't be surprising that they are already using channel 1 and channel 11. Unfortunately, you can't completely avoid interference just by using other channels. Wireless protocols 802.11b and 11g only have 3 non-overlapping channels. Therefore when 4 or more channels are used in the same area, the level of interference can increase notably. If you and your close neighbor both have a router and a wireless access point, for example - which makes a total of four powerful transmitters - both of you will have a certain amount of interference.

If there's a severe problem, a practical and sociable thing is to talk to your neighbors using wireless networks that can be seen when you scan. Together, you can choose optimal channels for your respective networks. You'll want your own channels at least 5 apart. So, for example, you could use channels 1 and 8, and your neighbor could use 5 and 11.

You may be able to place routers and access points further away inside your homes. After all, the kinds of physical barriers that reduce your transmission range also reduce the signal that your neighbor doesn't want to see.
Super G technology is faster, but it uses two, non-configurable channels. Therefore it may not be possible to pick other channels that avoid its interference.

If you can use a directional antenna, or an antenna cable to shift an antenna, that can help you both. See the articles on antenna selection.

Reducing Wireless Network Traffic

When there's noise, your network performance drops, so one approach is not to stop the noise, but to reduce the amount of network data being transmitted.

In a noisy environment, it may be useful to keep part of your network wired. If Ethernet cabling isn't an option, consider NETGEAR's Powerline products - using existing home wiring instead of cables.

When SSID Broadcast is turned on, it's easiest for equipment to find the strongest signal. However this also causes network overhead. When the SSID is broadcast, your neighbor's equipment may keep a record of it, and automatically try to connect several times a second; this can cause significant performance reduction. So where there are close networks, turn off SSID Broadcast, and change the default SSID.

Turning off WEP and WPA may increase network throughput, but exposes your network to hackers. This is not recommended, except for testing purposes.

To secure your wireless network and prevent unauthorized access you need to setup your wireless router with these settings :-
When you first setup your wireless router you should change the login password and then the wireless configuration, setup WAP or WAP2 encryption (WAP2 is the strongest encryption) and change the SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
For further wireless protection enable MAC address filtering. The MAC address of the wireless card in your computer is entered in the router MAC address filter table, which allows only the wireless card with this MAC address to connect to the wireless router.
Also if your router has a firewall then you should enable this feature.
The wireless card on the computer needs to be configured with the wireless router's settings. The LAN cable can be removed and the computer communicates wirelessly with the router.

How do I put an encryption on my linksys router?


Securing your wireless network is a simple process, which generally does not require a lot of time. This can be done by:
  • Enabling WEP or WPA on the Router
  • Enabling Wireless MAC filter on the Router
  • Disabling SSID Broadcast on the Router
NOTE: The wireless security modes available may vary depending on the model of the router and wireless adapter you are using.
Enabling WEP on the Router
Wired Equivalent Protocol (WEP) is a type of wirelesssecurity which does not change. It provides comparable confidentialityto a traditional wired network. There are two types of WEP you canchoose from:
a. WEP 64-bit: This type of WEP consists of 10-hexadecimal codes. To enable WEP 64-bit, click here.
b. WEP 128-bit:This type of WEP consists of 26-hexadecimal codes hence it is moresecured compared to WEP 64-bit. To enable WEP 128-bit, click here.
Enabling WPA on the Router
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a type of wireless securitywhich is dynamic in nature. Meaning, it changes depending on the timerenewal you will specify. Hence, WPA is more secured compared to WEP.
  • Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (WPA-TKIP) – utilizes a stronger encryption method and incorporates Message Integrity Code (MIC) to provide protection against hackers.
  • Advanced Encryption System (WPA-AES) – utilizes a symmetric 128-bit block data encryption
To enable WPA, click here.
Enabling Wireless MAC Filter on the Router
Wireless access can be filtered using the MAC address of thewireless devices transmitting within your network’s radius. You caneither permit or prevent specific wireless computers access to yourwireless network.
To permit wireless computers to connect to your wireless network, click here.
To prevent wireless computers to connect to your wireless network, click here.
Disabling SSID Broadcast on the Router
Disabling the SSID broadcast is one way of securing your wirelessnetwork. This procedure will prevent other users from detecting yourSSID, or your wireless network name, when they attempt to viewavailable wireless networks in your area. For instructions, click here.

Picking up another network?


Do you perhaps have both Windows Wireless Zero Configuration and the
wireless configuration utility that is supplied by the mfr of your
computer's wireless interface running at the same time?

there are many cases of people accidentally connecting to the wrong network because both neighbors used default settings on their equipment. It is a very good idea to secure your network, both to discourage the casual wardriver (who will likely just move to an unsecured system) and to prevent accidental use by a neighbor

Also, make sure that you set your network as the default and disable the "automatically connect to non preffered networks" (or something worded similar to that.

Hope this is helpful.
