Open the web browser on your computer and type ''http://192.168.1.1". This
address will open the configuration page for the router. When you are
prompted for a login name and password to begin configuration, just type
'admin' in both boxes to gain access.
Enable WPA2 Encryption
Under the wireless security tab, enable WPA2 encryption by ticking the appropriate check box. This will encrypt all data that is transmitted over the network. If the data is intercepted by anyone, they will find it to be garbled data. To enable this setting, check out the 'Wireless Security' tab. Choose a long passphrase to use and write it down exactly, because you will have to enter this passphrase on every wireless device you want to connect to to router. (laptop, Wii, BluRay, iTouch, etc)
