Question about 3Com OfficeConnect Wireless Router
Tell me step by step how i put protection password in my 3com router.
Hi, I'm assuming you have a 3Com router, start internetexplorer (blue e) in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and press enterthe new screen, type in the password to enter the set jup (as itsays, admin is the default) click setup wizard, put a dot in pppoa(I'm assuming you're in the UK) click next, put in your username and password, vpi/vcn 0 and 38 and encapsulation VC MUX,click next put channel to 11, choose an ssid (i leave mine at 3Com),click next, check all the data is correct then click on apply.Now toset up the encryption start internet explorer (blue e) in the addressbar type 192.168.1.1 and press enter in the new screen, type in thepassword to enter the set jup (as it says, admin is the default)click wireless settings on the left hand side of the screen, clicksetup wizard select wpa-psk from the drop down box where it sayspre-shared key, type in a MEMORABLE password and then click apply.Now you will lose your wireless signal. Panic ye not! Click on thesmatt TV in the lower right hand side of the screen (this is calledthe sys-tray) you will now see that the wireless icon which looks abit like a telly with 3 yellow arcs coming out of it's right handside has a red cross on it. Click it once, click view wirelessnetworks and then on the new screen click refresh network list. Youwill after a few seconds see your network -click on it and then onconnect. A new box will come up asking you for the network key akapassword. Enter the memorable password you have just forgotten in theupper and lower boxes and press enter. Et voila! you now have anencrypted wireless network and you can only get onto it if you knowthe memorable password!

What model router is it? here are some general directions: go to internet explorer, type in 192.168.1.1 and hit enter... this should bring up a login box... generally the username = admin or administrator and the password = password... (if that doesnt work look on the bottom of the router or in the manual for info) once your logged into the router proceed to the Wireless or security menu - you want to enter a WEP or WPA passcode of your choice (WRITE DOWN THIS PASSWORD) you will have to enter this password on any computer you want to connect via wifi Make sure to save your settings
