Secure your wireless router or access point administration interface 
Almost all routers and access points have an administrator password that's needed to log into the device and modify any configuration settings. Most devices use a weak default password like "password" or the manufacturer's name, and some don't have a default password at all.  As soon as you set up a new WLAN router or access point, your first step should be to change the default password to something else. You may not use this password very often, so be sure to write it down in a safe place so you can refer to it if needed. Without it, the only way to access the router or access point may be to reset it to factory default settings which will wipe away any configuration changes you've made.

thanks and rate the solution.

What does it mean by network security key


The name 'network security key' is itself self-explanatory. Every network has a security key and you will need this key to be a part of that network. Just as is the case of any other term that comes from the field of network engineering, there are a lot more details attached to this term, too. So, let us try to understand all the aspects related to network security key

An explanation as to why we need a wireless network security key is not even required. Still, if any one is skeptical about adding any complexity to their available wireless network, just think about it. Your wireless network range can be detected by any other computer with a wireless setup and that comes within the range of the network. So, without you knowing, it's very easy for any user to get connected to your wireless network and gain access to all the data that you intend to share only with those computers with which you have setup your wireless network. So, what is a wireless network security key and how is it useful in such situations?

Well, a network security key or passphrase is something like a password, which any user who wants to connect to your computer will require. But, I think that before we go into the details of figuring out, how to get network security key for wireless computer, we should take a look at the different methods of securing your wireless network

Trying to access the wireless using my netgear rangemax and need some kind of password or key..can u help?


You need the wireless security key from your wireless router. Log in to your wireless router using the admin login. Look for something like "wireless security" (depends on the brand and model) and look for WEP. The key settings should be there.

I have a Belkin FSD9230-4 wireless router, it says it is unsecured when I go on using my laptop. How do I secure the wireless connection?


You will have to login to the router's web utility, go to wireless security settings, and choose either WEP, or WPA. After selecting one of the two you will need to select a passphrase which you will need the next time you connect. I suggest WPA personal, because it offers a stronger encryption method than wep, making it more secure.

How to secure my wireless connection?


Open IE, go to your router using 192.168.1.1 and select Wireless security for the router you are using. Use WEP or WAP with 64 bit security. Use the same key on your desktop to connect to this secure connection.

Securing My Wireless Network


there's a setting when you log into it. go to www.dlink.com and get the user manual for your model..I'd recommend WEP security, since it's tighter.
