You can secure your network by creating your personal password to the network. To Do this you have to login to your router by typing your defaul ip addres for example 192.168.1.254 then choice expert mode, then connection, then wireless then on the line Privacy choice WPA-PSK and type your password then click to save changes. and restart your router.

It is asking for an access code to an access point . What is that?


Wireless networks can be secure or unsecure. Anyone can connect to an unsecure site simply by searching for available sites and choosing an unsecure one to connect to. There are inherit risks associarted with unsecure sites and you should NEVER do any financial or highly personal transactions on an unsecure network. Secure networks require a password (access code) to complete connection. This code is provided by the owner/administrator of the network. If you are allowed to connect to such a network, you should already be aware of the code. Otherwise you are basically not invited to the party.

When I restart my computer (or any instance where my connection is disrupted and then must be restored)... my WUSB54GS adapter has the worst time finding my network, or any of the closest ones for that...


It is totally possible that the wireless adapter is just old and not working as well as before.

You should try updating the drivers for it to see if that clears up any issues with finding networks.
If that doesn't work it may be time to start shopping for a new adapter.

On my D-Link Dir-825 Wireless Router, can I change my wireless networks name without having to go around reconnecting all the computers in my house afterwards


If your network is "unsecure", which means no pass keys will be provided by client computer when they connect, then you can do it. Just change your SSID from your router's admin interface and your connecting computers will recognize it as a new network and try to negotiate connection. If there is a passkey, then the connecting computers will be prompted for a pass key (though it is an old pass key) since they recognize it as a new network.

My Router works only if I do not put security password on it.


The router works only if the network is unsecured.
When you secure the wireless network , make sure that you will change the wireless network name also. Because if you change the wireless security and if you keep the same network name then your computer will try to connect to the same network name with the old unsecured settings saved on the computer.
Try to change the SSID ( network name ) and security to WPA, check if that works.
If that doesn't work then I believe you will need to upgrade the FIRMWARE of the router.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 works well finding unsecured


I don't know if you are using the standard Windows wireless LAN management, or the special DELL application for that. Anyway, try looking for a profile of that particular network in WLAN management (either Manage Wireless Networks in Windows networking, or something to that effect in in that DELL WLAN profile management) and deleting that profile, making it possible to search for it again "for the first time", so to say.

How to get rid of old "unsecured" wireless network


SLRUSS63,

Are you referring to the Linksys SSID showing up when you browse for available wireless networks? Also, are you in an apartment building or otherwise relatively close to other houses/residents? It is possible that you and a neighbor both have Linksys APs and if neither was secured originally, your neighbor could have been connecting to your AP and vice versa. This definitely would explain slowness especially if you or your neighbor does any type of video or audio streaming.

One way to test this is to shutoff your Linksys router and view available wireless networks on your computer. If "Linksys" still shows up, it is most likely someone else's router/AP.

As long as your SSID shows up and you can only connect to it via the WEP key, your AP is secure.

Let me know if you get different results than I explained above.

I forgot my network key, and purchase another computer. So, I second computer can't connect to my wireless network.


Hello Haity01,

There should be a very small reset button on the back of your router that you will need to press (with a pen or paper clip, etc...) for at least 10 seconds while it's powered up. Doing so will revert the router to it's default configuration (unsecured wireless network, or default key printed on the router or router/modem). If resetting defaults to open/unsecured? You should be able to address the router by typing 192.168.1.1 into the address bar of a browser once connected to the router and enable encryption and re enter a new key, then save those settings.

I hope this helps, and Good luck.
