Question about Generic KEEBOX W150NR Wireless-N 150 Home Router
Hello there and welcome to fixya
It really depends on the make of the router for yours You set the password on the page you pull up in your browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc) that controls the router; for many manufacturers this is IP address 192.168.1.1, it will most likely be under the "security" settings. You will need to select WEP or WPA settings (WPA is more secure) and if WEP, choose a 128 bit encryption rather than 64 bit. Keep in mind that the moment you save it, you will loose your connection until you add the password in the settings on your computer that control the adapter that receives the signal from the router. It is also advisable to make your SSID invisible to others; that way it will be more difficult for your system to be found and hacked.

Access the router's default configuration address through your Web browser by entering this address: http://192.168.1.1 (see Resources). Do not enter a user name. Enter "admin" for the password. That process works for all new Linksys routers. If you have changed the user name or password in the past, use the user name and password that you created.
When the configuration screen opens, click on the "Wireless" tab and select "Wireless Security" to view the router's current security password. The "Security Mode" field will say "Disabled" if you do not have a password to secure your network.
Select the appropriate encryption type from the "Security Mode" drop-down menu. Linksys routers offer WEP and WPA encryption. WPA encryption allows you to use a single password to access the network. WEP encryption creates 10- or 26-character keys that act as your password. Some of your wireless devices may only utilize a certain type of encryption. Determine which protocol is best for your network.
Enter a password that will be required to access the network. For WPA encryption, you can write your own password. For WEP encryption, click the "Generate" button to create passwords that can be used to access the network. Write down your passwords and keep them in a secure location.
Click "Save Settings" to confirm your changes. Your network will now be secured and will require a password for access.
Click the "Administration" tab to create a password to access the router configuration page itself. Be sure to change the password from the default "admin." Reenter the password for confirmation in the next field. Click "Save Settings" to confirm your new password.
