How do I set up this modem as a secured network .

I have been using this modem ( WA3002G4 supplied by Data One) for surfing the internet as an 'unsecured' network.
Recently I suspect it is being accessed by the neighbours .

How does one create a 'secured' network with this modem ??

    Thanks Vedhick,



    I got the IP address from 'ipconfig' (which happened to be the Linksys address 192.168.1.100) and typed it into the browser address window -

    . However I got the Google page for this address with other links instead of the User Name /Password windows.

    The router is a UTstarcom (Made in China) wireless, model No. WA30002G4



    Thanks for your help in advance

Is your modem wired or wireless?
if it is wired you donot have to worry but if it is wireless and the network is unsecured you need to perform the following steps.
if your computer is using the same wireless connection then you will loose the internet connection wirelessly as you will need to setup the configuration with the computer again..
1st u need to find the ip address of the computer..
click on start,then click on run in the box type in cmd and hit enter
now you will see a black box in that box type in ipconfig and hit enter
out of all the results you will see something which says default gateway there will be numbers beside it make a note of those number(eg it will be something like 192.168.1.125..this is just an example)
go to the browser page and type those numbers in the addres box,
it should open a user name and password box,type in admin/admin as the user name and password,
there you will see a tab for wireless under that tab you will see the option for security and then you need to make it secured..
YOU CAN TELL ME WHO IS THE MANUFACTURER OF THE MODEM SO THAT I CAN EXACTLY TELL YOU WHAT YOU NEED TO DO....

    thanks...
    i think you were typing in the ip address we need to type the default gateway in the address box,
    when you do ipconfig you will get default gateway as well,
    once you type now you should get the ustar page which will tell you to put the username and password,
    the default user name and password is admin/admin,
    once you are in the router page,on the left side you will see an option that says wireless,
    click on wireless and you will see on the right hand side which will say authentication type it might be disabled click on the drop down list and choose enable....
    after that choose wep and then put in the security key.usually it will be 10 or 21 alphanumber character or just numbers i suggest you to sure 10 keys...then save the settings and your network will be secured...
    make sure the computer is wired to the router while you make the network secured after that if you have any laptop
    that is wireless you need to configure the new settings to connect to it...

    im sure will get it this time....

Access point (router)
Access points (routers) are two-way transceivers that broadcast data into the surrounding environment. Access points act as a mediator between wired and wireless network. Most routers have a built-in DSL modem that will allow you access to a high speed DSL internet connection. The ISP (Internet Service Provider) you have chosen normally supplies a modem/router with the subscription to their services. Read carefully the documentation supplied
with your Access point/router for detailed setup instructions

Tip

Use the iPhone as a modem


Internet exchange, if you're wondering what this application. Just connect the <b>USB cable</b> while in the same way when you want to transfer files from iTunes. Then go to <b>Settings</b>,<i> Network General</i>, <b>Internet Tethering</b>.Will turn and you can surf the net on a <b>computer</b>. Make sure you have a data plan for <i>broadband</i>.Surfing on a <b>phone</b> without a data limit of at least 10 Gig can make you bankrupt.
