I just set up my new ZyXEL PK500Z, so happen to know this answer. In the ZyXEL Qwest Modem Configuration (launch 192.168.0.1), select Wireless Setup, then Wireless Security. Scroll down to Enter Security Key/Passphrase. Unless you changed this, Use Default is selected. If you want to use a password of your own creation, select Use Custom, then enter the password you want. Finish with Apply. Everything connected to your network will be prompted to re-enter the password. Is this what you were after?
Yes you should! Download a manual for your router and read how you start the wireless LAN. I think you login to your router by writing 192.168.1.1 in the URL window in a web browser. Password is 1234 as default. Be sure to encrypt the AP with WPA so that your neighbours dont use your internet conection.
To secure youe wireless router, follow these instructions : - 1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable. 2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL 3. Enter the router setup, login and password 4. Change the admin password 5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast. 6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). 7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router. 8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings. 9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router. 10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router.
You will need to access your router and configure your wireless settings. If you are uncertain about the password/username to access the router 0 then you might find it on label at the backside of the router.
Failing this - the favourite combinations are :
or sustitute "password" (without the quotes) as the password. If that does not work then you could "google" the question.
Hi, Type 192.168.0.1 into your internet address bar. (If this doesn't work try 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 or whatever your router's ip is) It will ask you for a username and password. The defaults are: username: admin password: admin or username: admin password: 1234
Now find the Wireless Security section, or suchlike, from the menu and choose either WEP or WPA (stronger encryption) and Enable.
Remember to write down your passphrase somewhere safe!
the password you entered should prevent people from using yor network unless they have the password. Your network will still show on other peoples settings when they check for networks to connect to, but now you have added a password for your router it should say secured next to it when they try to use your network it will ask them for the password - pin - etc... and if they do not have it then they should not be able to access your router. Why not try to see if one of your neighbours can still access it now you have protected it with a password.
