Unsecured means that you have not set any passwords or keys to lock your wireless connection. This is not a good practice. And yes, if the connection is unsecured, then others will be able to use it without any problems.

Do this if you are comfortable:

1) Go to Internet Explorer
2) Type http://192.168.1.1 (If that does not work, then try http://192.168.1.254)
3) Type the Username and password (both "admin")
4) Look for a Wireless tab
5) Look for Security and then look for WEP encryption.
6) Enable 64-Bit WEP encryption and type a key there. Save the settings.
7) Now when you try to connect to your connection, it will ask you for a key, put the same key as you had put in the router.

Please keep in mind to wire your laptop before doing these steps. Otherwise, you may be disconnected.

Hi,I just want to disconnect Ethernet and run with Wireless I have a Billion Myguard 7202G router which worked fine with Ethernet and has worked wirelessly beforebut shifted and cant remember how to set it...


Open the web browser and type 192.168.1.254 in the browser’s
address box. this number is the default IP address for this router.

A username and password window will appear. username and pass should be admin.
If you change the password and dont remember it. Look for a restart button on the back of the router. This will reset it back to default.
When you manage to login look for WAN and WEP setings

1a) Check whether HW switch is ON and the wireless system service is running.
1b) Switch on the WLAN Access Point (router) SSID broadcasting.
1c) Scan WLAN networks by the notebook. Can you see your home WLAN? If not, there is HW or SW problem in your wireless adapter probably. If WLAN is visible, continue by next steps.

3) Activate DHCP server in the router and set the dynamic IP assigning on WLAN notebook interface.
4) Select your home WLAN SSID in the list and try to connect.
5) Wait and check status. Is WLAN connected? Does obtain the notebook an IP address?
