Want to password protect my wireless router

I live with my 2 sisters and in our home we have a linksys WRT54G router and we would like to password protect our network so only our 4 computers are authorized to access our internet connection. I am on the website 192.168.1.1 and I can't figure out where to go from here to do so.

WPS button


I have a WRT54G router and there is no WPS button.

This is a cut and paste from Cisco engineer:
Wi-Fi Protected Setup or WPS is a somewhat new feature on most routers. However, I believe that the WRT54g was release prior to this feature. The installation disc for your wireless adapter is trying to circumvent network discovery and the process of entering a wireless password by using the WPS feature. Without using the installation disc to setup the adapter should still be able to connect to your Wi-FI network. Only use the disc to install the drivers for your wireless card and the wireless access utility. After you have done this:
1.Open the wireless utility and you should see available networks
2.Select your Wi-Fi network
3.If the network is open (not password proctected) you should be connected immediately
4.If the network is secured (password protected) then you will prompted to enter your password or preshared key
5.After entering the key you should be granted access to the network

How do I password protect my internet connection with my wireless router?


In order to set up a secure home network you will first need to be sure that the router is connected to a computer preferably via a network cable.
1. Open web browser of your choice.
2.go to 192.168.1.1
3.When prompted to sign in type "admin" (w/o quotes) in the username and password boxes.
4.After hitting enter you should be brought to a screen with many tabs on the top, go to the wireless tab.
5. Now go to wireless security, from here you can change the name of your network (SSID) and set up a password.
6. Go to the Security Mode box and select WEP 128bit 26 hex key.
7. The password must consist of 6-8 characters.
8. Apply the settings and you are done!

Happy computing,
Andrew

I bought linksy wireless rounter off my sister i cant get conected the router is asking for a password she forgot it how can i reset it to use h my hughes net modem


Press and hold the reset button on the back of the router for 30 seconds. You'll now have reset the WRT54G to factory settings.
1. Now connect to your router. 2. Log in to your router by typing in 192.168.1.1 in your browser. 3. You'll be asked for a username and password. Leave the user blank and type in admin as password. 4. Now secure your router again.

How do i secure my router?


1.Have a computer hard wired to one of the wired ports of your router.
2.Open Internet explorer and type in 192.168.1.1
3.Leave the user name blank and type "admin" in the password box. If you have previously changed the username and password for the Linksys router, use those credentials instead. Once you have entered the correct username and password, the page will load the main configuration menu for the Linksys router.
4.You ll have option called security ..Choose it ..Enable WPA/WPA2 Encryption which has highest protection and click on Save Settings

You are looking for a Wireless Security key, this is not the Linksys password for the admin portion, look on the bottom it maybe there if not changed. Else goto the router home page and check it there something like 192.168.0.1. or 192.168.1.1 etc etc

Secure network becomes unsecure all of a sudden


Sounds like the battery that backs up this router's "firmware" and "programmable" memory settings may be going bad. Then again, it may not have a battery that does this. Perhaps the little reset button on the back is jammed in?
