Check in you manual on logging into your router. The address will be something like: http://192.168.0.1. The manual will also tell you the User name and the password. Go to the wireless page. and give your network a name (SSID). In the security part of the page, select type and any other items including a KEY. Keep the KEY simple so you can remenber it. Actually, write it down in the manual. Select APPLY and then after a few seconds you can exit you web browser. Click on Available Wireless Connections in the system tray and look for your SSID name. Click your and Connect. When it asks for the KEY, type it in. You will type it in twice and then be connected. If any one knows your KEY, they can get on your network. If they do not know your KEY they cannot get on.
