If you don't have the password to log into the router's configuration using a wired PC, you'll need to reset the router using the little button located on the back or bottom of the router. This will reset it to the default factory settings and clear all configuration.

Setting secured wireless connection


You can enable WEP on your router.

In the address bar of your browser, type 192.168.0.1 to access the setup page of the Dlink router.

By default the username is admin and leave the password blank.

On the Setup page, go to Wireless.

Security Mode should be WEP then click Next.

You can change the WEP KEY 1. Make sure you remember this because you will need to enter this on your wireless computer.

Save the settings.

I hope this helps!

I want to take the security lock off my belkin f5d8233 because I restore my lap top to its original settings and I forgot my security codes.


Step 1 : Open RSP by typing 192.168.2.1 on the address bar of internet explorer

Step 2 : On the left Hand Side Under Wireless Click Security

Step 3 : Leave the password Blank And Click Submit

Step 4 : You Can Find the security code that you have enabled here

In case if it is a bunch of dots uncheck Obscure PSK in WPA

In WEP the key1 is the Password

And if you are changing the password make sure you change the ssid ( Name of the network ) or remove the preferred networks on your computer before connecting to it

How do I put an encryption on my linksys router?


Securing your wireless network is a simple process, which generally does not require a lot of time. This can be done by:
  • Enabling WEP or WPA on the Router
  • Enabling Wireless MAC filter on the Router
  • Disabling SSID Broadcast on the Router
NOTE: The wireless security modes available may vary depending on the model of the router and wireless adapter you are using.
Enabling WEP on the Router
Wired Equivalent Protocol (WEP) is a type of wirelesssecurity which does not change. It provides comparable confidentialityto a traditional wired network. There are two types of WEP you canchoose from:
a. WEP 64-bit: This type of WEP consists of 10-hexadecimal codes. To enable WEP 64-bit, click here.
b. WEP 128-bit:This type of WEP consists of 26-hexadecimal codes hence it is moresecured compared to WEP 64-bit. To enable WEP 128-bit, click here.
Enabling WPA on the Router
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a type of wireless securitywhich is dynamic in nature. Meaning, it changes depending on the timerenewal you will specify. Hence, WPA is more secured compared to WEP.
  • Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (WPA-TKIP) – utilizes a stronger encryption method and incorporates Message Integrity Code (MIC) to provide protection against hackers.
  • Advanced Encryption System (WPA-AES) – utilizes a symmetric 128-bit block data encryption
To enable WPA, click here.
Enabling Wireless MAC Filter on the Router
Wireless access can be filtered using the MAC address of thewireless devices transmitting within your network’s radius. You caneither permit or prevent specific wireless computers access to yourwireless network.
To permit wireless computers to connect to your wireless network, click here.
To prevent wireless computers to connect to your wireless network, click here.
Disabling SSID Broadcast on the Router
Disabling the SSID broadcast is one way of securing your wirelessnetwork. This procedure will prevent other users from detecting yourSSID, or your wireless network name, when they attempt to viewavailable wireless networks in your area. For instructions, click here.

Wireless security via MAC address


I would enable WPA encryption and keep the MAC security on. Even though no other computers can connect due to the MAC security, without the encryption your network still looks wide open and it will tempt people to connect. At least if they see there is some sort of encryption on they will not even bother with trying to connect to it.

Please help!


1. Click Start, Run, CMD, hit enter and write down the ip address of your default gateway.

2. Open your web browser, in the address bar type http://(ip of default gateway).

3. Type 'admin' for both username and password. If this doesn't work try using admin for just the password.

4. Go to wireless settings and first make sure that the SSID broadcast is enabled, if not enable it. Second, go to the wireless security section and choose an encryption method, i recommend wpa personal. Use a passcode that is easy for you to remember, you will need to enter it before you can access the internet wirelessly.
