Ok...
first you need to find the default gateway of the router,u need to do this settings in the computer which is wired to the router,securing the network over a wireless connections is not suggested..
click on start,run,and type in cmd,hit enter,a black box should appear in that box type in ipconfig and hit enter,once you hit enter it will give u a lot of results check the default gateway(default gateway should look like this 192.168.2.1)now open an internet explorer page and remove the website name that present in the addess box,now without http or www type in the numbers,it will tell you to put in the user name and password,username is blank and password is admin (this is generic to all the microsoft routers provided you have not changed it earlier,if u ave changed it then put in the user name and password that you have setup,now it should open a microsoft router page,in that page you will see an option which says wireless click on wireless and then under wirless you will have the wireless security,now you need to enable the security adn choose the type of secuirty type and save the settings once you do that you wireless connection should be setup with a security code...
PS:when you make your wireless network secured make sure that the computer is connected wired to the rotuer..

Only one of my laptops can access the wireless network. When trying to log on the others we enter the pass word and i say can not connect I have a Belkin G wireless router and a road runner cable ISP


Can you provide details of the other PCs Try the following
1) remove wireless profiles http://mgmcc.forumotion.net/networking-tutorials-f17/removing-an-existing-wireless-profile-t109.htm from your PCs and then try to reconnect 2) Log into the router and remove the wireless security and see if the PCs can now connect and if so - try adding security again

Setting up a security code to prevent sharing my network


You need to setup WEP encryption on that Wireless Router. Here is a link to how to do that:

Near the bottom of that page is how to configure Wireless Security.

Please rate me if you feel I deserve it.

Netgear router and microsoft adapter compatablity


You might try looking for updated drivers for your Microsoft adapter. Older wireless adapters often do not support newer wireless security methods like WPA/WPA2, so if your router is set to use something besides WEP, that may be the answer.

If you're not using wireless security and you still see intermittent connection issues, I'd consider using a different wireless adapter. In my experience, Microsoft wireless adapters do not have the range other brands do.

Need help dynex security sync wireless


according to the manual that i have, the model if the router that you have, DX-E401, is just a broadband router and doesn't have wireless capability. if that would be the correct model of your device, there's no way that you can enable the wireless encryption since it doesn't have wireless capability. but if you are really using a wireless dynex router, follow the steps below on how to access the router's page and enable the security.

access the router's setup page by typing http://192.168.0.1 on the address bar of your web browser (i.e. internet explorer, firefox etc). by default the username is admin, then leave the password blank.
you will be prompted with the router's page, now go to the wireless settings and look for the encryption field and enbale wpa from there.

if you are not sure whether your router has wireless capability or if you are using another wireless router just give me the exact model and brand then ask me

ciao!

Wireless security


Hi anthony - Could you please let me know the makes and model#s of the wireless pcs your running on your network. Also what operating system they're running. I just need to know because once you set up your routers' security you'll have to set up the wireless pcs with same security or they won't have access to the network. If you already know how to do that don't worry about it. Just thought I'd help you do that too. Just make a little list with one pc a line and each ones' info. Then I'll be happy to assist you. Thanks.
