Did u meant you'd protect your wireless network?

Try this:
1. Go to 192.168.1.1 OR 192.168.0.1 (depends on routers brand, recommended that you see first your default gateway address at the trace task bar. Right-Click wireless connection>Status>Support>Find out your gateway IP.)
2. After you found your gateway IP address, go through the web browser.
3. There will be login page, usually ID: admin, password: admin (depends also on the routers brand, recommended to see your guide book.)
4. After you logged in, click the wireless tab.
5. Set your password by WEP/WPA code (recommended for you that WPA code, it contains 8 digits, and safer.)
6. Restart your router (usually it does restart automatically.)

Hope that will help =]

No data internet connection


Connecting to the Internet without a Wi-Fi data plan isn't a difficult process even for a novice at utilizing and joining wireless networks. Whether you are looking to join a public Wi-Fi hotspot network or a neighbor's private Wi-Fi network with their permission, get your computer online and browsing the Internet without the use of your own Wi-Fi data plan, saving money in the process. Note these steps to get you connected in just a few minutes.

Move to an area that offers free public Wi-Fi or to an area where you believe you are close enough to pick up a neighbor's Wi-Fi signal. In the latter case, check with your neighbor beforehand to ensure it is allowed that you utilize their Wi-Fi network. Using a private network without permission is illegal. Boot up your laptop. Allow Windows or the Mac operating system to load up fully on the laptop. Click on the wireless icon on your computer's desktop area. In Windows, you will find this icon on the right side of the bottom toolbar. It appears to be a computer monitor icon with small radio waves reaching out of it. Alternatively, on a Mac laptop click on the Wi-Fi icon on the top right toolbar in the desktop area. This icon will look like a set of radio waves extending upward. Look over the list that appears once you click on the wireless icon. This list will present all the wireless network options that are within the range of your laptop. Avoid any that present with a "lock" icon beside them, because these require passwords. If you are looking to join a password-protected network like one offered by a neighbor, request the password ahead of time. In the event of a public network at a local business, a password will not be required. Click on the network you intend to join. Input the appropriate password at this point, if joining a password-protected network. Also, choose the type of security encryption the private Wi-Fi network is using. Your computer will often have this auto-selected, but you may need to select either "WPA" or "WEP" security manually. Click "Enter" on your keyboard. If you do not have the necessary password or are unsure as to the security encryption type, either contact the network administer or click "Cancel" and join a public Wi-Fi network. Allow several moments for your computer to join the network. You will receive a notification on your Windows or Mac toolbar when it does. Launch your Internet browser of choice and begin utilizing the Internet without having to rely on your own Wi-Fi data plan

Generic instruction on how to connect your WiFi Router to the Internet


Yes, try this, Using the network cable that came with your wireless router, you should temporarily connect your computer to one of the open network ports on your wireless router (any port that isn't labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN). If you need to, turn your computer on. It should automatically connect to your router.Next, open Internet Explorer and type in the address to configure your router. You might be prompted for a password. The address and password you use will vary depending on what type of router you have, so refer to the instructions included with your router. As a quick reference, this table shows the default addresses, usernames, and passwords for some common router manufactures. Table is, Router Address, User Password. 3Com http://192.168.1.1 admin adminD-Link http://192.168.0.1 admin Linksys http://192.168.1.1 admin adminMicrosoft http://192.168.2.1 admin adminNetgear http://192.168.0.1 admin password
Internet Explorer will show your router's configuration page. Most of the default settings should be fine, but you should configure three things: 1. Your wireless network name, known as the SSID. This name identifies your network. You should choose something unique that none of your neighbors will be using. 2. Wireless encryption (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), which help protect your wireless network. For most routers, you will provide a passphrase that your router uses to generate several keys. Make sure your passphrase is unique and long (you don't need to memorize it). 3. Your administrative password, which controls your wireless network. Just like any other password, it should not be a word that you can find in the dictionary, and it should be a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Be sure you can remember this password, because you'll need it if you ever have to change your router's settings. The exact steps you follow to configure these settings will vary depending on the type of router you have. After each configuration setting, be sure to click Save Settings, Apply, or OK to save your changes. Now, you should disconnect the network cable from your computer.

Where is the administration located?


You need to encrypt your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password.
You can now configure the wireless settings to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings. To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Westell 0738 Is my next door neighbors wireless point I can't acess her network it asks for a password..can I get around it? And is there a universal password?? She's old and I bet she don't...


There are no universal password/encryption setting.
Your next door neighbour has protected her wireless network and Internet access from unauthorized access. If she wishes to give you access to her wireless and Internet she would give you the password. That is her choice.

I Pod Touch connection to the internet won't work...incorrect password


Router passwords are case sensitive, be careful when entering the password. If you can, ask the owner of the router to enter the password for you. If you're using a neighbor's wifi network, you are pretty much out of luck unless they give you the password.

I installed a new Zonet 1605 wireless adapter so i could pick up the wireless internet from my niegbor it does not work why?


You are not able to pick up your neighbor's network can be due to various reasons.
1) Check if the adapter has been installed properly. Check the device status in the device manager. It should say "This device is working properly"
2) The distance might be too much for you to receive the wireless signals.
3) Might be having any other wireless devices like a cordless phone near your computer which may cause interference.
4) Your neighbor's wireless router might be transmitting signals in 802.11a or 802.11n standards which is not compatible with Zonet 1605 adapter.
5) Your neighbor would have password protected his wireless network to avoid illegal use of his internet. These days there is more importance given for wireless security.

Thanks and regards,

Passwoed


Lol whi-fi? You need to read up on WEP (Wired Equivalence Protection) WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and WPA2 to learn about it. Then you need to login to your router usually using 192.168.0.1 or whatever I.P. (Internet Protocol) Address your router has. Use your default password (provided with your manual) and set a different password after inside. Read your manual to understand where to set your WEP or WPA Passwords. Keep in mind WEP despite the name is not Equivalent to Wired Connections. WEP can be cracked withing 1-2 minutes. WPA and WPA2 can be cracked as well if it is using a PSK Handshake. Do a little homework and read your owners manual. Understand the risk.
