Hi BabyDoll - to find your key, log in to your router. Enter 192.168.0.1 into your browser. If the defaults haven't been changed, the user is " admin" all small case without the quotes. There is no password. Just enter the user and leave the password blank. To get the key, click on the wireless button on the left. Then look down the page and you'll see the passcode fields. This is what you're looking for. Also take notice of what's above it such as WPA, WEP, etc. Write this info down. You can also go into your pcs that you use wireless on and put that key in and the kind of security (WPA, etc) so that it will not ask for it every time.
If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, DON'T RATE YET. Let me know what happened and I'll be happy to assist you further. If you need to know how to enter the info so that you won't have to enter it all the time let me know. I'll help you with that. Let me know what happens. Thanks.

You dont need to change your default SSID settings. if youre using a belking router you can access iuts admin graphic page by opening browser >on the address bar: type in 192.168.2.1 > and check your wireless settings re security .
note: check your default gateway by going to run > cmd > ipconfig /all and hit enter
There youl find your default gateway
The def gateweay is your routers IP address .
Type that on your address bar to access your belkin
Let me know if this help.Keep me posted

On the security enabled network you need the pass phrase associated with the secured network and its configuration(WEP, WAP, ect...). If you are authorized to use this account contact the system administrator and he/she will give you pass phrase and configuration info needed to configure your network connection. If you are not authorized to be on that system and the are using WEP there is a program called net stumbler that captures several thousand packets and analyzes them using an ingenious algorithym and discerns the passphrase needed to gain access to the protected network in a couple of minutes. Net stumbler is also a great tool for the hobby war driving. This is a game where people drive around looking for internet hotspots and logging there location and getting in. It's more of a status thing than a criminal thing. It is illegal to access soomeone's network even if it is left open with no protection, believe it or not. I just read a story about a kid in England getting arrested sitting on a public bench accessing a womans wireless service from her flat accross the street. An officer aproached him and noticed he was online. Even thought the woman had left her wireless router wide open the kid was charged with theft of service. You have to be careful because networks log all connections and personally identifyable information about all computers that log onto a network. I hope you found this informative. Please take the time to rate it for me.

You don't need to install anything extra to secure the network. It's a matter of changing router settings. You set up the router through your web browser by going to "http://192.168.0.1" which accesses the device's setup screens.
There are several revisions of this product. Here is the URL for D-Link's selection page for the router:
Click on the picture that shows the version you have, and then you'll be taken to the page for that version. You can download a manual or look through the FAQ's which will guide you through the process of setting up the security.
