Question about Linksys RV042 VPN Router
You will need to configure your router:
1. Open your Browser and in address bar type in 192.168.1.1.
2. Username and password are the same - "admin" (without quotes) for both.
3. You will find the Wireless Security Tab & from here you can choose your encryption preferences - best to choose WPA rather than WEP - it is safer!
Hope this helps.

So, you log into the router at 192.168.1.1 by opening up IE and typing that address on the address line. The username is left blank and the password is "admin" by default.
When it opens you will see tabs, one of them being Wireless.
Now, here's where you have to ask yourself what type of security you need and why. Easiest, and least secure is WEP. IT's also the easiest one to recover if you lose your key. If you're just trying to stop freeloaders, it will work...for a while. I've kept my neighbors out of mine for at least 2 years, but the kid next door is getting better.
In the simplest, you can always set SSID so something, disable the broadcast, turn on WEP and set the code to 1011121314 or FACE123456 (10 hex characters 0-9 A-F). Be sure to change your router password to something else besids admin and you're on your way to wireless security.
